Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Accuses Obama of Staging Recent Shootings

Well, this is about as bizarre as it gets: Dave Mustaine, frontman of legendary metal outfit Megadeth, accused President Obama of staging the Sikh temple and Aurora movie theater shootings in order to con Americans into accepting tighter gun control laws.

During a recent concert in Singapore—which is caught in the footage above at the 2:40 mark—Mustaine goes beyond mere conservative rhetoric to accuse Obama of some pretty outlandish, sinister schemes. "Back in my country my president is trying to pass a gun ban so he's staging all of these murders. Like the Fast and Furious thing down at the border, and Aurora, Colorado, all the people who were killed there, and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple. God….I don't know where I'm going to live if America keeps going the way it's going because it's turning into Nazi America." 

FYI, Dave, some people just ask, "Are you having a good time tonight?" between songs and move on. While I'm not sure whether he believes these shootings to be outright fabrications or if he's implying Obama hired the alleged shooters to do his dirty work, I am fairly certain Dave Mustaine has lost his mind.
