VIDEO: Ted Nugent To CNN Erin Burnett: Are You Against Gun Trafficking?… Follow-up Question: So You Would Support Arresting Eric Holder?
Guest Post by Mara Zebest
Always enjoy a great Ted Nugent interview. The media loves to ask a question that begins with: “Surely you agree…” So it’s great when Ted Nugent turns the tables on this media technique near the end of the interview clip. It starts when Nugent states the following:
TED: Here’s one for you Erin, I think we can both agree, that we need to stop gun trafficking. Do you agree with that?
ERIN: Stop gun trafficking? Yes.
TED: Illegal gun trafficking?
TED: Then you would support my recommendation that we arrest Eric Holder?
LOL! Hilarity ensues… “hilarity” defined by the fact that CNN Erin Burnett did not see that one coming and is quickly flustered…. promptly ends the interview as quickly as possible. Enjoy!
For the record, some of the statistics that Nugent cited at the beginning of the interview can be found in a survey taken of law enforcement officers found at the PoliceOne site.
In March, PoliceOne conducted the most comprehensive survey ever of American law enforcement officers’ opinions on the topic gripping the nation’s attention in recent weeks: gun control.
More than 15,000 verified law enforcement professionals took part in the survey, which aimed to bring together the thoughts and opinions of the only professional group devoted to limiting and defeating gun violence as part of their sworn responsibility.
