Ted Nugent Talks Guns in Exclusive Interview ^ | 22 April, 2012 | G&A Online Editors

Posted on 04/23/2012 7:23:05 AM PDT by marktwain

Hard rocker and legendary gun rights advocate Ted Nugent is no stranger to controversy — that became all too apparent in just the last few days, during which time his comments at the 2012 NRA Show in St. Louis earned Uncle Ted a visit from the Secret Service. As such, it’s painfully clear The Nuge is one of the most outspoken voices when it comes to hunting, fishing, trapping, shooting and pretty much anything outdoors.

Luckily, our good friends over at Sportsmen Vote were able to get an exclusive interview with the Motor City Madman. When asked for his first decisions should he ever be elected commander in chief, Nugent responded in typical fashion.

SV: What do you think is the single biggest challenge facing sportsmen?

Nuge: The same embarrassing curse of apathy that has opened the door for the vile abuse of power and runaway corruption in our government. It is clearly the job of we the people to stay in tune with current affairs and speak out and communicate with our elected officials to steer America straight. It is diabolical, for example, that PA sportsmen’s groups actually sided with the maniacal HSUS on recent game law changes. This is suicide for conservation.

SV: If you were elected president, what would your first executive order be?

Nuge: I would rescind Obama Care and begin to gut the wasteful, bloated bureaucracies one by one.

SV:Why, in your view, is it so important for sportsmen to vote in this election?

Nuge: The current condition of federal and state government is infested with animal rights and anti-hunting and anti-gun zealots. The power of the licensed-hunter vote is strong enough to steer things back to common sense.

SV: Should there be nationwide reciprocity for state-issued concealed-carry licenses, just as there is for state-issued drivers licenses?

Nuge: As soon as possible, yes. But the real Second Amendment rights, by all honest review, requires no government issued paperwork of authority other than the existence of the Second Amendment itself.

SV: Whoever wins the presidential election may have the opportunity to appoint one or more justices to the Supreme Court. Why is the make-up of the Supreme Court important to sportsmen?

Nuge: We need to only look at the preposterous decision of four Supreme Court Justices that signed a declaration that American citizens have “no fundamental right to self-defense” to know how dangerously out of touch liberal justices can be. Many believe this to be the most critical issue of all.

The fact that Ted Nugent refused to be intimidated is a rally point for constitutionalists across the nation.

Ted Nugent also showed us all how the SS is being used by Obama to chill the free speech rights of citizens.

By 2008 George Bush was burned in public effigy, and a computer game designed around his imputed assassination, but the SS under Bush did nothing in deference to freedom of speech.

Obama uses the SS to cow Americans.By any historical test, Obama is a fascist.

Good Read:

Ted... if you are reading this forum.. I wanna work for you..

I do not have a fancy degree...

I do not have ties and such to the feds....

I do not represent or in any way support communism / socialism....

What I have in a high IQ, and a hated of communism / socialism... I also have a great deal of experience in contracts and the enforcing of them...

I do not want to be the suit and tie wearing guy sitting at the table... I want to be the jeans and shirt wearing guy sitting at the back of the room with the suit and tie wearing guys, calling them out on their lines of crap and bull crap spewing mouths..

Ted, if you wanna run, give me a call, I will sit in the back of the room, and warn you when socialism rears it’s ugly head..

This is my manifesto..

Saw him in concert Friday night, front row.
He said “The whole world sucks, America sucks the least, Texas doesn’t suck at all”
God Bless Texas

No open carry of pistols. Austin and Houston are liberal hotbeds of asshattery...

Yeah... There is still plenty of "suck" in Texas.
