Nugent's Brother Disagrees on Background Checks

Jeffrey Nugent, brother of rocker Ted Nugent, writes in the Washington Post that he disagrees with his outspoken younger brother on expanded gun sale background checks.

Writes the older Nugent: "I agree with Ted that our constitutional right to bear arms should not be undermined. I want all those who are qualified to purchase a gun to be able to do so. But -- and here is where I part ways with my brother -- not everyone is qualified to own a gun, so expanded background checks should be a legislative priority."

He continued: "The NRA has it wrong: Irresponsible gun owners are bad for everyone. If you shouldn't have access to a gun, then there should be no way for you to access a gun! Can anyone argue with that?"
