Ted Nugent Gets CNN Anchor in a Pickle About Effective Ways to Stop Gun Trafficking

If you don’t have time for the full interview, skip ahead to about the 6:00 mark of Ted Nugent’s interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett to see how to end a segment fairly quickly.

Ted found the coveted “common ground” the left always claims to be in search of, and Burnett had to force herself to disagree for obvious reasons, and then couldn’t get out fast enough:

Nugent: I think we can both agree that we need to stop gun trafficking. Do you agree with that?

Burnett: Stop gun trafficking? Yes.

Nugent: Illegal gun trafficking?

Burnett: Yes.

Nugent: Then you would support my recommendation that we arrest Eric Holder.

Burnett: Well no, I don’t support that.

Nugent: Well, Fast & Furious was gun trafficking.

Burnett: I have to admit I don’t support that (arresting Eric Holder for gun trafficking).

Nugent: Well I do. That’s how you stop gun trafficking — by stopping gun trafficking.

Burnett: That’s your right as an American to have that belief.

Nugent: If you want to stop gun trafficking why don’t we go after the guy whose been trafficking guns? That would be Eric Holder.

Burnett: Alright, we’ll leave it that — I would love to continue [uh-huh — DP] but they’ve been trying to get me to wrap for a couple of minutes.

I guess not everybody wants to make it a little harder for our kids to get gunned down.
