Ted Nugent tweeted for our lives last week in March: "Shame on the fraudsters who manipulate ignorant children for their counterproductive dangerous policies." Yesterday (March 30), he talked about these words and called the survivors of the February 14 attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, who have since led the national outcry for stricter arms control laws, "mushy-brained" and their actions "soulless.

"Attacking America's good law-abiding families when known predictable killers commit these horrors is soulless in the category." These poor children, me I'm afraid to say, and it hurts me to say that, but the evidence is irrefutable: you have no soul. "
Last year, Nugent promised to soften his choice after his wife complained. "At the tender age of 69, my wife convinced me that I just can not use those harsh terms," he said. "I'll take a deep breath and I'll take it back, and when it gets fiery, when it gets hateful, I'll go away, I will not deal with that hateful rhetoric anymore."
