While performing at a recent concert in Singapore, Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine told the crowd that he believes President Barack Obama staged the movie theater shooting in Aurora, CO in order to pass a national ban on guns, according to a video provided by TMZ.

During the rant, Mustaine told the crowd, "Back in my country, my president ... he's trying to pass a gun ban, so he's staging all of these murders, like the Fast And Furious thing down at the border ... Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there ... and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple."

What's really confusing about Mustaine's claims is that President Obama has been shockingly soft on gun control over the years and isn't even in the process of trying to pass such a bill. Then again, most people probably don't look to heavy metal singers for logic.
