(Newser) – We could have guessed that Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine wasn't a big fan of Barack Obama—he did kind-of endorse Rick Santorum in February—but his latest diatribe against the president made his feelings crystal clear. At a concert in Singapore, Mustaine accused Obama of "staging" the Dark Knight mass-shooting in order to help pass a gun ban, reports TMZ. And, for good measure, Mustaine also connected the conspiracy to the ATF's "Fast and Furious" bungled gun sting and the mass-shooting at the Sikh temple.

"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," said Mustaine, who has also sounded off in recent months on Obama's birth certificate and other conspiracies, notes the Hollywood Reporter. "I don't know where I'm gonna live if America keeps going the way it's going because it looks like it's turning into Nazi America."
