Dave Mustaine, Gun Control: Megadeth Singer Blasts Politicians That Would ‘Take Away My Guns’

Dave Mustaine, Gun Control: Megadeth Singer Blasts Politicians That Would ‘Take Away My Guns’ – He’s got a long way to go if he wants to make waves like rocker-turned-Secret Service-person-of-interest Ted Nugent, but Dave Mustaine has a knack for stirring up liberal anger.
