I don’t know who Ted Nugent is but I really respect his words in this interview on You Tube. I have transcribed it below.

Evan Smith: “Second Amendment, gun control. You’ve been on the NRA’s board since 1995 and this is a subject that you may feel more strongly about than any other…make your case.”

Ted Nugent: “I believe that a person moral compass can be determined by how he references free men the right to defend themselves. The second amendment to me is so obvious to me, its insane that there is an argument. Let’s pretend there is no document. Let’s pretend brave families didn’t leave the tyrants and slave drivers of Europe, so that they could practise the religion of their choice, they could speak out without being murdered, that they could produce wool without the King’s men coming and taking it from them every season of harvest. Lets pretend none of this happened. Lets just pretend that this guy named Ted Nugent, parachuted down to earth and woke up one morning and saw all of these wonderful resources and had dreams of excellence and being the best that I could be. I don’t need a document and I don’t need another man to explain to me that I have the right to defend my gift of life. And that there is an argument in America from Hilary Clinton, from Barbara Boxer, Diane Feist, from a whole gaggle of numbnuts, who would try to tell me they will dictate where how and if, I can defend myself. I find that preposterous, I find that unacceptable and I will not accept it. I am a free man, DON’T Tread on Me, a good law abiding citizen, not convicted of a felony. The 2nd amendment of our bill of rights is my concealed weapons permit. PERIOD. That’s it.

Evan Smith: “So no limitations of any kind”

Ted Nugent: “No none. The limitation would be instead of arresting people for molesting children 24 times, I would rather the dad walked into the room, found a person molesting that child and blew his brains out. I would rather that the lady in Massachusetts last month who was taking her daughter to soccer who was car-jacked by a recidivistic maggot who had been in the prison system all his life but he was let out again because “we feel sorry for him”, maybe he had a bad childhood, and instead of her being hijacked and murdered, I’d rather she just shot the bastard dead. But in Massachusetts, somebody decided she can’t do that, so she is dead. I would rather she was alive and the car-jacker was dead. I’m weird? I would rather that the guy who beat his lady to within an inch of her life in Waco, on parole was he, and beat her to within an inch of her life in front of her grandchildren, with a whiskey bottle, I would rather she fell to the ground, pulled out a 38’ and shot him 6 times in the chest and killed him. Am I weird?
Because the guy is going to get out again. I don’t like repeat offenders, I like DEAD offenders.”

Child molestation:

Roman Polanski and Ted Nugent should be cell mates for child molestation. Ted said “The limitation would be instead of arresting people for molesting children 24 times, I would rather the dad walked into the room, found a person molesting that child and blew his brains out.”

I think   everyone  is  entitiled to  make a choice about life...perhaps a  choice might  be  to  sacrifice  your  life or that of a  loved  one at the hands of a 'recidivistic maggot'  or maybe  you  would like to defend yourself.  I totally agree with  Mr. Nugent! 

Ted most definately falls under the category

...of "headbanging caterwauler" in the Linz lexicon, and while I'm (accusations to the contrary) not a fan of his particular music but I like what he has to say about gun rights. He's a little less libertarian on issues like the war on drugs, however, even volunteering to be a deputized in the "Drug Enforcement Agency" ...

Stabbings Vs. Shootings

Good point Lance.

Watch this excellent clip on a Disarmed Country.

Go for it Dinther (I sat my test last night).

Thanks Pete, I really liked what Ted had to say.

The UK has a lot of "knife

The UK has a lot of "knife crime"... I wonder what the per capita stabbings in the UK vs shootings in the US looks like.

I never thought I would say this but...

I have grown up learning to hate guns, hunting and violence. Not surprising because I spend a large part of my younger years surrounded by people with socialist views.

I still don't like guns. I do buy into the argument that having guns all over the place causes more grief than good. I think the USA is a good example since you won't find that many shootings in other countries where guns are banned.

I also don't think Americans are a more violent crowd than other western nations so it have to be those guns. but...

I do agree with Ted Nugent. You should have the right to defend yourself. Also here in New Zealand we have had plenty of public cases where people are prosecuted for defending themselves but there should be no limit to your self defence. Not even death because you can't affort to wait until death is upon you or your family.

If you allow the state to limit your rights to defend then you might as well hand them your life. I think I am going to apply for a gun license while I still can.

Ted Nugent is an American rock star (guitars/vocals), but he is unique in that he has a libertarian/conservative streak to him. He's a very avid hunter and one of the most vocal advocates of sportsman's and gun owner's rights. He is from Detroit originally and is thus known as "The Motor City Madman".
