Ted Tells It Like It Is!

Yet another great editorial by the always outspoken and always entertaining Ted Nugent this weekend in the Waco Tribune. The title: “Gun-free zone a crime unto itself”. Never were truer words spoken.

Ted starts out with the oft repeated tale of the hapless Plaxico Burress – the New York Giants player who shot himself in the leg. Now he’s facing a mountain of legal problems. Why? Because he had the temerity to have a GLOCK (oooh, evil) in his possession in New York City. That’s it – and that warrants condign legal action by the city – the fact that he had a weapon in his possession – a weapon that is perfectly legal in the majority of these United States.

As always, Ted doesn’t put too fine a point on it:

“Criminal thugs, of course, are not deterred from carrying guns by New York City's draconian gun laws. Mayor Blowhard Bloomberg and other Big Apple elected buffoons who forbid NYC citizens from defending themselves are complicit in turning innocent, law-abiding citizens into defenseless victims.”

Maybe every time a citizen is attacked and killed in New York City, Bloomberg and his cronies should be charged as accessories? I bet some laws would change pretty darn quick at that point!

Ted also makes an astute parallel to the incident in Mumbai:

“Imagine terrorists simultaneously attacking a number of hotels in Manhattan, or an event at Madison Square Garden or Central Park. As good as they are, it would take hours or days for the New York City's finest to kill or capture all of the terrorists.

“Now try to imagine the same scenario if New York City residents were allowed to carry guns to protect themselves. At least they would have a fighting chance. Not today.

“Thanks to its well-body-guarded mayor and other anti-freedom bureaucrats, New York City residents would be as helpless as the victims in Mumbai.”

Again, I couldn’t have said it better myself. Terrorists are going to look for soft targets in the United States, and because of their restrictive gun laws, many of the major metropolitan areas in the US – not just New York, but Chicago, DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, among many others have effectively painted targets on themselves. I can only pray that the people realize this fact before it’s too late.

Until next time!!!
