"Hannity had Nugent on his Fox Show in July to discuss a blog post in which a writer said he had 'dibs' on Rush Limbaugh if it ever became legal to shoot him, and that others would be 'welcome to' Nugent if they wanted him. Hannity said he took such threats seriously, and he asked Nugent if people who make them ought to be arrested. Nugent's answer: Yes.
'You know, I'm an American. I love all Americans. And I would help any American pursue their dreams and their pursuit of happiness,' Nugent told Hannity. 'But you find that the left, there's a lunatic fringe on the left that literally are trying to force us to comply to their outline of life. And I find it just reprehensible that they would recommend violence, not to mention murder and shooting people and assassinating people. This is bizarre.'
