Rock music legend Ted Nugent, one of the strongest voices in defense of the Second Amendment, is making his voice heard loud and clear as the latest debate over proposed gun-control legislation plays out.
Earlier in the week, Nugent engaged in a feisty debate with CNN host and gun-control advocate Piers Morgan. Despite the push for more restrictions on gun rights in Washington and in states around the country, Nugent fired back with a vigorous defense of what he says is the overwhelming majority of gun owners.
Nugent, who is also a National Rifle Association board member and now a WND columnist, was typically straight-talking with us as he assessed his confrontation with Morgan.
“I am convinced that Piers Morgan was sent by God to represent everything that doesn’t agree with Ted Nugent, because you’ve got to be the devil’s advocate or the devil to argue with me,” Nugent told WND. “I’m a simple man. I’m 64 years clean and sober. I never went to college because I was too busy learning stuff. …
“In fact, I’m saving money on dog food this week because I’m just letting my three Labradors lick the shrapnel from Piers’s skull out of my boot cleats,” he said.
Nugent then explained why he believes history and practice prove that taking away guns never mean greater safety for the people.
“If you try to argue that the Chicago, Mexico, Washington, D.C., Rwanda gun-free zone is somehow desirable, then you are either as equally evil as the murderers that slaughter innocent people in those gun-free zones or you are opening the door and rolling out the red carpet, that is red because it’s saturated with the blood of innocent victims that are piled higher in gun-free zones than anywhere in the world,” Nugent said.
“Anybody that dares debate me about what the Second Amendment means and whether free Americans have the right to keep and bear arms as a gift from God, a right from God as guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution, I will do to you what I did to Piers. I will embarrass you, and I will make you look like some subservient sheep from England,” he said.
The very first thing Nugent does in his new column is attack the premise that some firearms can be restricted because no one supposedly needs them.
“Common-sense people know it’s not the Bill of Needs. Common-sense people know you don’t need two homes and you don’t need more than one TV. Common-sense people know that quality of life and freedom has absolutely nothing to do with needs,” said Nugent. “Then when you scrutinize the self-evident truth of God-given individual rights, the Founding Fathers wrote it down, not because they got together and had a good idea. They knew that the king denied these self-evident truths and these God-given individual rights.
“So we wrote down the self-evident, truth-based, God-given rights that we the people in this new land, free of kings, free of emperors, free of tyrants, free of slave drivers, that we will exercise our God-given, instinctual, self-evident, truth-based right to self-defense from any evil force that threatens our gift of life from God and especially power-abusing monsters in government.”
Nugent said he also doesn’t buy President Obama’s claim that he’s proposing “common-sense” gun restrictions or Obama’s claim that he is a great respecter of the Second Amendment.
“I say sure you are, Mr. President, and I’m a gay pirate,” mused Nugent. “One just has to study Barack Obama’s voting record.
