Virginia Tech : Ted Nugent on CNN

Postby GOSA » Tue, 2007-04-24 12:19

Best article I've seen since the massacre.

By Ted Nugent
Special to CNN

Editor's note: Rock guitarist Ted Nugent has sold more than 30 million albums. He's also a gun rights activist and serves on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association. His program, "Ted Nugent Spirit of the Wild," can be seen on the Outdoor Channel.

WACO, Texas (CNN) -- Zero tolerance, huh? Gun-free zones, huh? Try this on for size: Columbine gun-free zone, New York City pizza shop gun-free zone, Luby's Cafeteria gun-free zone, Amish school in Pennsylvania gun-free zone and now Virginia Tech gun-free zone.

Anybody see what the evil Brady Campaign and other anti-gun cults have created? I personally have zero tolerance for evil and denial. And America had best wake up real fast that the brain-dead celebration of unarmed helplessness will get you killed every time, and I've about had enough of it.

Nearly a decade ago, a Springfield, Oregon, high schooler, a hunter familiar with firearms, was able to bring an unfolding rampage to an abrupt end when he identified a gunman attempting to reload his .22-caliber rifle, made the tactical decision to make a move and tackled the shooter.

A few years back, an assistant principal at Pearl High School in Mississippi, which was a gun-free zone, retrieved his legally owned Colt .45 from his car and stopped a Columbine wannabe from continuing his massacre at another school after he had killed two and wounded more at Pearl. At an eighth-grade school dance in Pennsylvania, a boy fatally shot a teacher and wounded two students before the owner of the dance hall brought the killing to a halt with his own gun.

More recently, just a few miles up the road from Virginia Tech, two law school students ran to fetch their legally owned firearm to stop a madman from slaughtering anybody and everybody he pleased. These brave, average, armed citizens neutralized him pronto.

My hero, Dr. Suzanne Gratia Hupp, was not allowed by Texas law to carry her handgun into Luby's Cafeteria that fateful day in 1991, when due to bureaucrat-forced unarmed helplessness she could do nothing to stop satanic George Hennard from killing 23 people and wounding more than 20 others before he shot himself. Hupp was unarmed for no other reason than denial-ridden "feel good" politics.

She has since led the charge for concealed weapon upgrade in Texas, where we can now stop evil. Yet, there are still the mindless puppets of the Brady Campaign and other anti-gun organizations insisting on continuing the gun-free zone insanity by which innocents are forced into unarmed helplessness. Shame on them. Shame on America. Shame on the anti-gunners all.

No one was foolish enough to debate Ryder truck regulations or ammonia nitrate restrictions or a "cult of agriculture fertilizer" following the unabashed evil of Timothy McVeigh's heinous crime against America on that fateful day in Oklahoma City. No one faulted kitchen utensils or other hardware of choice after Jeffrey Dahmer was caught drugging, mutilating, raping, murdering and cannibalizing his victims. Nobody wanted "steak knife control" as they autopsied the dead nurses in Chicago, Illinois, as Richard Speck went on trial for mass murder.

Evil is as evil does, and laws disarming guaranteed victims make evil people very, very happy. Shame on us.

Already spineless gun control advocates are squawking like chickens with their tiny-brained heads chopped off, making political hay over this most recent, devastating Virginia Tech massacre, when in fact it is their own forced gun-free zone policy that enabled the unchallenged methodical murder of 32 people.

Thirty-two people dead on a U.S. college campus pursuing their American Dream, mowed-down over an extended period of time by a lone, non-American gunman in possession of a firearm on campus in defiance of a zero-tolerance gun ban. Feel better yet? Didn't think so.

Who doesn't get this? Who has the audacity to demand unarmed helplessness? Who likes dead good guys?

I'll tell you who. People who tramp on the Second Amendment, that's who. People who refuse to accept the self-evident truth that free people have the God-given right to keep and bear arms, to defend themselves and their loved ones.

People who are so desperate in their drive to control others, so mindless in their denial that they pretend access to gas causes arson, Ryder trucks and fertilizer cause terrorism, water causes drowning, forks and spoons cause obesity, dialing 911 will somehow save your life, and that their greedy clamoring to "feel good" is more important than admitting that armed citizens are much better equipped to stop evil than unarmed, helpless ones. Pray for the families of victims everywhere, America. Study the methodology of evil. It has a profile, a system, a preferred environment where victims cannot fight back. Embrace the facts, demand upgrade and be certain that your children's school has a better plan than Virginia Tech or Columbine. Eliminate the insanity of gun-free zones, which will never, ever be gun-free zones. They will only be goodguy gun-free zones, and that is a recipe for disaster written in blood on the altar of denial. I, for one, refuse to genuflect there.
What have YOU done for YOUR rights today?

That was an excellent letter that you posted Martin, from ol' Ted "TNT" Nugent. Good job, mate!

That fellow is giving stupid American's "the what for", that is, telling them to get off their fat behinds and get armed, to stand up as men and do the right thing. For cryin' out loud, things are very, very bad in the united States today: the level of deception and of mis-direction is enormous. I'm constantly baffled to meet so many of my neighbors that seemingly do not utilize the "Grey Matter" between their ears! On the other hand, I'm delighted to report that I've also met a few hard-chargin' men in my own community as well as from those in the military whom I once served with. Sorry Martin, I get to rambling at times... hahaa

I'm gonna' "copy & paste" that letter and send it on to a whole bunch of folks.

I'm a tell you and whoever cares to read these forums something both interesting as it is true, OK?

Me and my old SEAL Team-mates once flew to Western Australia and worked with the A.S.A.S. (Australian Special Air Service), a group of very highly trained guys - commando's actually. We took with us all our "toys" too. We had two (2) high-speed cigarette-style assault crafts, two (2) tiny "Little Bird" helicopters, huge pallets of ammo, ordnance, swim gear, weapons, radios, surfboards, beer, civilian clothes, etc., etc. <Smile> We had a real nice time and I really did not want to leave that lovely country. I still have fond memories of our cross-training and partying there.

However, years afterward, when I saw some video of what happened down in Australia, when their God-less "leaders" (wicked Civil Magistrates!) released the news that all men must turn in their weapons. Say what? I saw the video, Martin, of the HUGE piles of firearms: long guns, shotguns, pistols and carbines of all types, shapes and sizes and the piles of these things were so big that they needed to scoop them up with a large bull-dozer. Later the weapons were systematically destroyed with large, industrial cutting tools. Gone forever!

I was utterly sickened in my heart (still am) to behold such foolishness.

I thought to myself, "What the heck was going through those men's minds as they turned in their lawful, GOD ordained means of Self-Defense?".

The freaky thing about it all is that Australians are long known to be very bold, rugged individuals who love the outdoors; they struck me as some pretty tough folks when I met some of them in and around Perth, W. A. The LORD God of heaven says in His holy writ:

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge... therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall."The Book of Hosea, ch.iv, vss.6a & 14c

Here's yet another reason why we must fear God and hope in His mercy through Jesus Christ: if we don't know Him, we'll be susceptible to deception and manipulation. We will be led to the slaughter. Almighty God has ordained all of His true saints to suffer persecution (by various ways & means) at the hands of the wicked, for that ALL WHO LIVE GODLY IN JESUS CHRIST SHALL SUFFER PERSECUTION. On the other hand, we still have the God-given command to DEFEND OUR WIVES, CHILDREN, HOUSES, PROPERTY, ANIMALS and yes, even OURSELVES TOO! This ain't some new teaching either. Man, that's why I love fellows like Ted Nugent: Speak ye every man the TRUTH to his neighbor (see Zechariah 8:16-17!).

The main point is that there comes a time when it is LAWFUL to disobey a Civil Magistrate and say, "Enough is enough! We are NOT going to turn our weapons in!".

Thanks Martin for the great post and for letting me "VENTILATE" a little bit. It is a real "circus" out there and from the things that I see taking place here and abroad, I just have to shake my head in disgust. At the same time I pray constantly, knowing full well that in His time, the mighty Lion of the Tribe of Judah - Jesus Christ the Lord of glory - will one day return in great power, might, brisance, fierceness in bright shining light, with ten thousands of His saints upon white horses. We have nothing to fear save God Himself, ladies and gentlemen.

The LORD be magnified (not mere men)!

With care, Billy
