Morgan began by asking Nugent to explain to him, “in the least inflammatory way possible” why Americans need the AR-15 assault rifle. When Nugent began talking about the millions of Americans who own guns and have “never caused a problem, never had an accident and will never commit a crime,” Morgan responded by listing off the number of gun murders and suicides each year in this country.
“Do you care about murders?” Nugent asked. “Or do you only care about about murders with guns?”
Morgan answered, “I care about all death.”
“I don’t think you do,” Nugent shot back. “I think you care about guns. You’re obsessed with guns.”
