Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Says Obama 'Staged' U.S. Shootings To Pass A Gun Ban

Anyone who's followed the career of Dave Mustaine knows he's never been shy about voicing his opinion or his right of centre political views.

Mustaine, is the lead singer of the heavy metal band, Megadeth. And he's no fan of U.S. President Barack Obama.

But at a recent show in Singapore, Mustaine made his most controversial statement yet about the President.

Mustaine took to the mic to talk about the recent gun violence in America and said this...

"Back in my country, my president is trying to pass a gun ban so he's staging all of these murders. The 'Fast and Furious' thing down at the border. And Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there. And now, the beautiful people at the Sikh temple."

Mustaine also said, "I don't know where I'm going to live if America keeps going the way it's going because it looks like it's turning into Nazi America."

Check out the video and let us know what you think of Mustaine's comments.

12 people were killed and 58 wounded in the Aurora, Colorado shooting. The suspect has been charged with 24 counts of 1st degree murder and 116 counts of attempted murder.

Six people were killed and four wounded at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, by a gunman identified as a white supremacist. He then killed himself.

Mustaine sat down with George for an interview this past season. Among other things, he said he's certain Obama was born somewhere else than America.
