Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine has received some serious backlash from the recent remarks he recently made onstage in Singapore suggesting that the Obama administration “staged” recent tragedies like the one in Aurora, Colo. and the massacre at the Sikh temple in Milwaukee, Wis., in order to promote stricter gun laws.

The outspoken Dave Mustaine is taking a lot of heat for his latest onstage comments claiming President Barack Obama staged the recent shootings in Colorado and Wisconsin. The Megadeth frontman now admits his choice of words may not have been the best, yet he's not backing off from his theory.
Megadeth's Dave Mustaine has made his share of provocative comments throughout his career when it comes to politics and other hot button issues. However, his latest claim that President Barack Obama “staged” recent shooting massacres on U.S. soil to aid his agenda for an overhaul to current gun control laws has one victim speaking out against the rocker.
Surprise, surprise! Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has said something ridiculous yet again! His latest rant, however, may be the Mustaine's most bizarre claim to date. During Megadeth's Aug. 7 performance at Fort Canning in Singapore, Mustaine took some shots at Barack Obama, claiming that the President was "staging" various massacres on American soil to gain support in the passing of stricter gun control laws.
Remember not too long ago when Dave Mustaine seemed to be offending everyone on the planet with a slew of controversial comments? The legendary Megadeth frontman has been relatively quiet as of late, but we may have just been experiencing the eye of the storm, as Mustaine has once again claimed that President Obama was born in Kenya, Michelle Obama wore a dress that purposely made her look like a Black Widow spider and that the Obama administration has facilitated race wars, class wars, sexual wars and religious wars.
Not even one year after the release of 'TH1RT3EN,' Megadeth have already begun writing and recording new material for the band's fourteenth album. Megadeth have spoken briefly about kicking around new ideas, but frontman Dave Mustaine recently spoke about the details of the forthcoming disc.
As Megadeth geared up for their appearance at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Tenn. this weekend (May 5), Dave Mustaine grabbed the microphone backstage to talk about the upcoming co-headlining tour with Rob Zombie and the 20th anniversary of the band’s classic disc ‘Countdown to Extinction.’
