"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," Nugent said to NRA supporters in April 2012. "If you can't galvanize and promote and recruit people to vote for Mitt Romney, we're done." Nugent added: "We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November."
During an interview in 2008, Nugent had harsh words for undocumented immigrants. "In an unauthorized entry, armed like they are right now, invading our country, I'd like to shoot 'em dead," Nugent told Fox News' Sean Hannity.
