Rock legend and gun-rights defender Ted Nugent says there’s “no question” President Obama should be impeached, and he’s calling CNN anchor Piers Morgan an “effective idiot” in the battle over the Second Amendment.

Referring to Obama, Nugent says, “There’s no question that this guy’s violations qualify for impeachment. There’s no question.”

He blasted “the criminality of this government, the unprecedented abuse of power, corruption, fraud and deceit by the Chicago gangster-scammer-ACORN-in-chief. It’s so diabolical … .”

Nugent made his comments during an interview Monday with radio host Alex Jones.

He called the probe into the fatal onslaught at the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, “the most recent outrage” worthy of the Obama administration.

“When you’ve got the secretary of state of the United States of America who was brought in for questioning regarding the murder, the slaughter, the predictable slaughter of four American citizens in Benghazi, what kind of subhuman numbnut would not know you need security in Benghazi 24/7?” Nugent asked.

“And why does Hillary Clinton know that she’s got the backing of the president and the government overall when she has the audacity to scold those elected officials who ask proper questions. The hearings are over. Nothing [is the result]!”

On Wednesday, radio giant Rush Limbaugh said on his own program that the Obama administration’s release of hundreds and potentially thousands of illegal-alien criminals from U.S. detention centers in connection with possible budget cuts is “an impeachable offense.”

“In what used to be considered (if we can remember this far back) normal, sane times, this is an impeachable offense,” Limbaugh said. “This is action being taken against the country. … It is sheer madness to be doing this. It is petulant, it is childish.”

Nugent, a WND columnist, is also taking aim at CNN anchor Piers Morgan, a British citizen who has been lecturing Americans on why they should have more restrictions on guns.

Nugent told Jones, “You and I and all freedom lovers and all gun-rights advocates in America, should get on bended knee right now, look to the heavens, make the sign of the cross, and say, ‘Thank You, God, for making our opponent Piers Morgan.’ You and I could go to the greatest creative minds in the world and we couldn’t come up with a more effective IDIOT than Piers Morgan to try to make a point of why we should be disarmed. You gotta admit, he’s exactly what we need in that position.”

Nugent lamented the apparent lack of interest many citizens have in defending their own freedom.

“I think the apathy is still the No. 1 curse of America,” he said. “If we haven’t demanded accountability for Benghazi or “Fast and Furious” and all the other criminal acts by this regime, then I’m afraid I don’t have hope that this will be a motivator itself.”

The guitarist urged Americans to “get engaged” in the fight to defend their Second Amendment rights especially.

“You’ve got to be a member of the National Rifle Association, and you’ve got to make sure that your buddies are members of the NRA, and your co-workers, and the guys at school with you, the guys at church,” he explained.

Nugent said he has been personally targeted by the federal government for his remarks opposing Obama’s agenda.

“I could tell you some stories about how the feds have come after me,” he said, “and how they’ve tried to get me on numerous felonies for the most nonsensical, ridiculous scams against me, trying to shut me up, trying to take away my gun rights, trying to take away my voting rights, because they’re scared to death of me.”
