Tactical Firearms in Katy, Texas, hosted Morgan. The men at the shop were quite polite and not at all condescending. They allowed him to shoot several different firearms at their range. And they gave him a chair so he could interview Texas attorney general Greg Abbott and the Motor City Madman, Ted Nugent.
Actually, the exchange with Nugent wasn’t really an interview.
Now, some might take issue with the gun shop for even letting Morgan — who is one of the most vocal anti-gun media members out there — into their shop. You all know how I feel. I think it’s great. I call this Taking the High Road.
You know that there is less than a ZERO percent chance of Morgan going in there, firing off a few rounds and saying, “Hey, this is kind of fun. Now I get it.”
Oh, well. He shot the guns. He (hopefully) learned a few things. It might have planted that “OK, I can see how people enjoy this” seed. Or maybe not.
But it can’t hurt. Again, the more people on all sides of an issue interact, the more those people should learn about each other.
As for Nugent, he’s about the 180 degree polar opposite of Morgan. He’s out there. So you knew it was going to be interesting. ( If you missed it, check out parts of the clip here.) But unlike some gun people I’ve seen on national TV during this whole thing, the Nuge is darn smart. He made good points without coming off as a nut job. (I’m guessing some may disagree with me on that one!)
From what I’ve been reading today it seems many gun rights folks are thinking Nugent more than held his own. But I bet gun control people probably feel the same about their man.
Watch the clip and let us know what you think.
