Rock star Ted Nugent, known for his habit of making and posting controversial statements, again stirred up the pot last Tuesday when he linked his Facebook fans to a shocking video that showed front-runner Hillary Clinton being murdered by her challenger, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Produced by the “Cool Junk Products” YouTube channel, the video featured Clinton and Sanders on the debate stage, discussing the merits or lack thereof of gun control.
When a CNN moderator asked Clinton whether she had been insinuating that Sanders, who happens to be slightly more right-leaning on Second Amendment issues than his opponent, was responsible for New York’s gun violence, she began ranting and raving about how gun control is “no laughing matter.”
And then this happened:
Sanders deftly retrieved a handgun from his jacket pocket and shot Clinton off the stage, just after she stated, “90 people on average a day are killed.”
“I got your gun control right here b****!” Nugent wrote as a caption to his video share.
Going by the responses posted to Nugent’s page, a lot of his fans found the video to be quite amusing. Of course, liberals felt otherwise and complained on Twitter and elsewhere that Nugent was promoting violence.

Either way, the man is very likely to receive yet another visit from the Secret Service, which last paid him a visit during the 2012 presidential election.
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” he reportedly vowed at the time.
According to PolitiFact, the question asked of Clinton in the video was based on her previous accusations that Vermont’s more tolerant attitude toward gun control has created a gun pipeline to neighboring New York, where weapons from Sanders’ state are allegedly used to commit crimes.
The site rated the claim only half true and noted that The Washington Post had given it three out of four “Pinocchios.”
It’s no wonder fictional Bernie felt like shooting her.
