Rocker Ted Nugent, a long-time campaigner for right-wing causes, came under fire Tuesday from Jewish groups after he alleged a conspiracy behind US gun control efforts. The "Cat Scratch Fever" guitarist on Monday listed on Facebook prominent US Jewish politicians who support stricter gun laws and put Israeli flags on their pictures.
