Michigan rocker Ted Nugent said during a recent podcast that he wanted to give a lifetime supply of ammunition to Kyle Rittenhouse, who a Wisconsin jury acquitted of murder last week in a high-profile trial.
Nugent, 72, is a outspoken conservative who sounds off on various issues, including the Second Amendment and why he won’t take the COVID-19 vaccine.
On a new episode of “Rock of Nations With Dave Kinchen,” the ‘Motor City Madman’ said, “I’m going to get a hold of Kyle Rittenhouse and I’m going to provide him a lifetime supply of ammunition.”
He added he’d also “like to begin the Kyle Rittenhouse Tactical Masterclass because as a young man, boy did he do good. He knew that weapon.”

I support the BLM movement.”
At trial, the defense argued that Rittenhouse was acting in self-defense.
WGRD-FM (97.9) in Grand Rapids reported that in the “Rock of Nations” podcast, Nugent called Rittenhouse “a samurai” who “under those unbelievable, traumatic and physically assaultive conditions — he did his job.”
Nugent said in Oct. 1 appearance on “Off The Record” that COVID-19 might be a “weaponized virus” and when senior Capitol correspondent Tim Skubick asked him if he believes that the millions of people who got the shot are “just stupid,” He replied: “Yup.”
The Michigan singer and songwriter makes outlandish comments on a variety of topics so often though that various news outlets have complied lists of his “most controversial” and “craziest” quotes over the years.
