Clips From Last Night: Ted Nugent on Trayvon Martin, Stedman Graham on identity and ownership

On Wednesday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed back rocker and activist Ted Nugent for his candid perspectives on gun control in relation to the Trayvon Martin case.

While cautioning the public against forming an opinion without all the facts, the conservative columnist did describe a general concern about having one's own firearm turned against them:

"Those of us that are armed, we have a responsibility to keep that new assault from taking our weapon, because if the assault escalates to that degree, certainly the fist can go into a deadly situation if they get ahold of the gun-bearer's gun," warned the musician. "If it wasn't for back-up guns in law enforcement and in civilian hands often times...the person getting beat up is killed with his own gun. So let's not dismiss that reality."

Meanwhile, last night host Piers Morgan also invited Stedman Graham onto the program for a discussion on equality and identity, and the concept of creating one's own path:

"We're in the 21st century today, this is a period of ownership. It's a period of self-development. It's a period of self-leadership. It's a period of entrepreneurship," said Oprah Winfrey's partner and the author of Identity: Your Passport to Success. "The basis of that, is being able to have an identity which allows you to again work on your talents, work on your skills, work on your passions, focus on what you love. And there's no better time than the time we live in today to be able to do that."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as both guests share their insights and opinions on how to focus on "Keeping America Great."

    Mr. Morgan,
    Do you recognize that you are now living USA? Don't you feel it is insulting to call "Stand your ground law" absurd? It is the Law of land in State of Florida. Some respect to those who passed the law, the elected representatives of citizens of State of Florida.

    Piers, you have as much right as anyone else to voice your opinion on the stand your ground law. As a Canadian, I voice my opinion all the time on a variety of topics. CNN is a global news site.

    Piers, Ted Nugent was absolutely correct on the Trayvon issue. He is also on target when he speaks of being in jail, or dead if Obama is re- elected. Ted is not about to turn his tools over to the federal government without a fight, and I would PERSONALLY stand beside the man. Hopefully you never have to face an assailant without the proper resources with which to DEFEND yourself or your FAMILY! In this day and age that we live in, you need every advantage you can get your hands on. Respectfully, DPMOORE82@YMAIL.COM

    Mr. Nugent is very typical of conservatives in this country that say they are Americans,but have no respect for anything other than their own opinion. Talking about "evil" just stops any discussion about how to GET ALONG. Enough divisive politics!Start learning to talk to others with different ideas or the revolution that Mr. Nugent wants will be here.
