Uncle Ted Offers Gun Control Advice to V.P.
Good old Uncle Ted hasn't been shy about gun control and now penned a letter on the matter to Vice President Joe Biden. In an open letter published in the Washington Times, Nuge offers up his services to boot.
In the letter, Nugent actually agrees with our Commander in Chief, writing "I too want nothing more than to see evil, senseless massacres stopped. I concur with the president and caring people everywhere: It’s time to end these slaughters," the rocker states. "While I strongly differ with President Obama on many issues, I agree with him that we must work with all we can possibly muster to end these tragedies."
His idea to fix the issue? Public service announcements aimed at parents being aware of their children's entertainment choices, as well as raising awareness about warning signs in the mentally ill.
He writes, "As you gather your team to study massacres and how to stop them, I offer to you my services and a lifetime of expertise on guns in all their implementations. In the spirit of goodwill and a deep desire to end gut-wrenching, incredibly sad and senseless rampages".
He also thinks "gun free zones" should be re-examined.
"Gun-free zones are modern killing fields," he says. "I implore you to recommend that Congress pass a law to ban gun-free zones immediately. Just like your full-time, armed security detail, qualified citizens with authorized, legal concealed-carry permits should be able to carry weapons virtually everywhere to protect themselves, their loved ones and innocents."
My favorite line is where Nugent argues that "We should never recommend or develop public policy that restricts the rights of the good guys based upon what evil people do or might do."
