Aurora Shooting Victim to Dave Mustaine: The President Didn’t Shoot Me

We’ve always had a soft spot for Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine. Over the years he’s had countless ups and downs while making great music, and who could forget how he bawled like a baby in Some Kind of Monster over his regret from being fired from Metallica?

Last week Mustaine, who supported Rick Santorum earlier in the year during his failed run for the presidency, told an audience at a Singapore show last week that he believed President Obama secretly planned three recent shootings in order to take away citizens’ gun rights. “Back in my country, my president is trying to pass a gun ban. So he’s staging all of these murders, like 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 aded, “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.”

Carli Richards, a survivor of the Aurora movie theater shooting that last month left 12 people dead and 58 injured, has a message for Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine: President Barack Obama didn’t shoot her.

“Some people think the president is a good scapegoat but he didn’t shoot me,” Richards told TMZ.

However earlier this month, Richards said that death by firing squad “would be totally justified” as a punishment for the alleged shooter.

See Dave, America still loves its guns.
