Ted Nugent: Empire State Shooting ‘An Example of Failed Gun Control’

“Everybody dead in Aurora was unarmed and helpless. Everybody dead in Milwaukee was unarmed and helpless. Everyone dead at Virginia Tech was unarmed and helpless,” Nugent told Newsmax in an earlier interview this month. “How dare the president or Nancy Pelosi, or Bloomberg want more of that?”

Second-Amendment champion and rocker Ted Nugent expressed outrage at the shootings outside New York’s iconic Empire State Building on Friday, but pointed to the tragedy as a failure of gun control.

“The Empire State shooting is yet another gun free zone,” declared Nugent on Friday. “How’s that working NYC? Chicago? Philly? Newark? DC? Rwanda? Sudan? Syria? Mexico?”

Jeffrey Johnson, said to be a disgruntled laid-off women’s accessories designer shot a former co-worker to death in front of the Empire State Building, causing a chaotic showdown with police in front of one of the world’s best-known landmarks.

Police then killed 53-year-old Johnson but at least nine others were wounded, some possibly by police gunfire, city officials said.

A member of the NRA’s board of directors, Nugent is a passionate supporter of the Second Amendment freedom to bear arms and he unceremoniously dismisses recent calls for gun control based on what he considers to be an uninformed reaction to earlier mass-shooting tragedies in Aurora, Colo., and Oak Creek, Wis.
