Skip to comments.Ted Nugent ammo sells out, says cops won't obey Obama on guns
Posted on 01/15/2013 7:46:49 PM PST by Red Steel
Ted Nugent, the rocker and Michigan deputy sheriff whose new line of ammunition has sold out amid gun control worries, claims members of state and federal law enforcement are poised to disobey any order by President Obama to seize guns.
Nugent, whose trained with the FBI, ATF and DEA, on Tuesday cited a group called "Oath Keepers," members of federal and state police and military organizations, who will not enforce laws that conflict with the Constitution and presumably the Second Amendment right to arms.
In an interview with the "Andrea Tantaros Show with Jason Mattera," Nugent said that if ordered to seize his guns, the "Oath Keepers" would refuse. "First of all," he said if military or law enforcement officials showed up at his Texas ranch, "I'd slice them a shank of venison because most of them are my friends."
He explained: "There is an official organization called 'Oath Keepers,' and these are heros of law enforcement and the military who will not obey an order, an illegal, anti-Constitution, oath-breaking order to infringe that far on our Second Amendment rights."
He predicted that "many will" refuse to enforce orders violating their interpretation of the Second Amendment, but not all, and he cited the Waco, Texas attack during the Clinton administration, as an example.
The Oath Keepers webpage details broadly the group's mission: "Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, veterans, peace officers, and firefighters who will fulfill the oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.
"Our oath is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and we will not obey unconstitutional (and thus illegal) and immoral orders, such as orders to disarm the American people or to place them under martial law and deprive them of their ancient right to jury trial."
In the interview, Nugent also revealed that Obama's threat to gun owners has helped him sell out his new line of ammunition for rifles and pistols.
"I'm in the gun industry," he said. "I have my own Ted Nugent line of ammo that has sold out every pallet that we can back into a sporting goods store."
The LEO’s I mentioned are not personal friends of mine, so favoritism doesn’t apply. They are patriots who have stated they will not violate their oaths, and that protection applies to all citizens in their jurisdiction.
...”WHOSE trained with the FBI?” WHOSE?
“Did they refuse orders to disarm citizens during Katrina? “
The cops and national guard refused to disarm citizens when they were met by armed deputy sheriffs at the county line.
I know several people who were killed with a one shot .22. All it takes is a shot in the heart or the head. And you make a great point about how many rounds you can carry.
You just made me think of a great idea. Print little copies of the 2nd amendment and hand them out to every cop we see.
“Accidentally” stumbled on some .22 lr yesterday and scooped up around 2k rds. Of course 500 rds had to go to the neighbor because the Packers lost to SF last weekend. I kept the Winchesters, he got the Remingtons. But in general, ammo is hard to find right now. The shop we found them at got them from some lady whose husband had just passed away and she had a lot of brand new ammo in unopened boxes she wanted to get rid of. Lucky me. Third gun shop we had been to looking for ammo.

Matt Bracken - Dear Mr. Security Agent
Do you have a link for that? My recollection was that Gen. Honore refused to disarm citizens, but not in response to armed deputies defending citizens' 2A rights.
We should be seeing specific information about the lobbies and individuals attacking the Second Amendment. We should be seeing bill text when available. Otherwise, we’re only seeing assumptions. There are police, local government and so-called professional organizations behind gun control, but many political folks don’t want you to see them.
As a former federal agent I worked with FBI, DEA, ICE, Secrete Service the US Marshall's and even the dreaded BATF. I can tell you that 95% of these agents have their own personal weapons that they are just as worried about loosing as the rest of us. There is no exemption in any of these laws for them and they know it.
Imagine how they feel knowing that the government does not even trust them to own the weapons they carry for a living.
They are having the same conversations we are having here. "Dave are going to turn in your guns if they change the law"? Hell NO that would be stupid and unconstitutional.
They will not enforce a gun confiscation, it would be self defeating, foolish and extremely dangerous.
Explain the smiling, then hyperventilating father in the news clip and THEN call it bullshit.
If you can’t imagine this “incident” being used as a means of furthering Barry’s gun control agenda, you’ve little imagination.
I figure you’ve never watched the video.
“Nugent, whose trained with the FBI, ATF and DEA,...”
Seriously? A journalist for a large publication who doesn’t know the correct grammar for “whose” vs “who’s”? Good grief.
I like I said, you are worse than the liberals. I am sure you know 99% of the LEOs. Either that, or you are a mentally defective pathological liar.

What about this?
How does a dead girl show up at the memorial for Sandy Hook victims?
Florida Atlantic University professor James Tracy is suggesting that the Sandy Hook massacre was really a hoax.
Tracy, who is allegedly known for his conspiracy theories, writes in his blog that the school tragedy was an orchestrated event created by the Obama Administration as a ruse to implement gun control. Connecticut officials understandably want the professor to be terminated.
Read his compelling story! His blog is here: http://memoryholeblog.com/2013/01/01/sandy-hook-the-illusion-of-tragedy/
I see another Colorado gun bill made it to committee that the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners support called "HB1085 Change Posession of Weapons by Previous Offender," and that just about all the Dem Boulder/Denver gun grab bills [seeing assumptions] haven't yet made it out of the starting blocks.
Yeah, I know...Not that creepy, but it just seems to me if you are not going to at least stand up and be counted on when issues like this pop up...
You might as well crawl into the hole they dig for you and let them bury you in it...
They have more ways than trying to corrolate my comments here, and my real “Superhero Identity”, location and itinerary...And by then I’ll already know they are coming...
If they wish to take it that far...
How unfortunate for them I suppose...;-)
I never thought I would see the country as close to civil war as it is now...
Under current law the crime of possession of weapons by previous offenders applies to all felony convictions. The bill limits the felony application to felonies under the victim's rights act, burglary, arson, or any felony involving the use of force or the use of a deadly weapon.
