Ted Nugent: ‘What Kind of Idiot Thinks That Our Founding Fathers Were Protecting Deer Hunting?’

Ted Nugent on Bloomberg: ‘What Kind of Idiot Thinks That Our Founding Fathers Were Protecting Deer Hunting?’

CNSNews.com) – Rock star and Second Amendment advocate Ted Nugent recently criticized New York City’s Democratic Mayor Michael Bloomberg for focusing the gun control debate in the United States on deer hunting.

“If you listen to Mike Bloomberg -- framing the Second Amendment as a deer hunting issue – this is bizarro world,” Nugent said on Jan. 17 at the Shot Show 2013 gun show in Las Vegas. “He’s got to be the dumbest upright species in the history of breathing creatures.”

“What kind of idiot thinks that our Founding Fathers were protecting deer hunting?” Nugent said.

Nugent has weighed in on the gun control debate sparked by the Dec. 14 attack by Adam Lanza at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., who shot and killed 26 people, including 20 children and then himself.

A long-time gun control advocate, Bloomberg spoke on the topic in an interview on CBS This Morning on Jan. 17. Host Charlie Rose asked the mayor about the increase in guns sales in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.

Bloomberg compared gun control to speed limits and said the way people buy guns and what guns they buy has changed.

“In the olden days, people bought pistols and rifles with a bolt, single action,” Bloomberg said. “Today, you can buy something where, if you keep pulling the trigger, it keeps firing, firing, firing.”

“And it fires bullets in some cases, armor-piercing bullets, which are only designed to kill cops,” Bloomberg said. “We just don`t need assault weapons out there.”

“There’s nothing sporting about it,” Bloomberg said. “If you can’t shoot a deer with two shots, you don’t—shouldn’t be out there shooting.”

Nugent said gun ownership is about the basic right to self-defense and infringing on the Second Amendment is not the answer to prevent future mass shootings, adding that many of those events in recent years happened in “gun-free zones.”

“Those who would take away the right to keep and bear arms or infringe upon it in any way are the enemies of freedom,” Nugent said.

he’s even an idiot for thinking that the Founding Fathers would allow the federal government to limit deer hunters to 10 bullets.

If you’d like to be on or off this Outdoors/Rural/wildlife/hunting/hiking/backpacking/National Parks/animals list please FR mail me. And ping me is you see articles of interest. Will try to find more threads.

Ted is, of course, correct. But if the founders had forseen there would be nutballs agitating against hunting, there might have been another amendment in the Bill of Rights. They couldn't forsee everything.

Citing the obvious: the more fear and absurdity the rational used, the more sinister the real objective. Then there are those who always wonder what happened (the common democrat).

“And it fires bullets in some cases, armor-piercing bullets, which are only designed to kill cops,” Bloomberg said. “We just don`t need assault weapons out there.”

And every ordinary deer rifle shoots ordinary hunting bullets that will go through
the best body armor there is like a hot knife through butter, Mayor Numb Nuts.

“...the dumbest upright species in the history of breathing creatures.”

VP Joey “Plugs” Biden (IDIOT-DE) is truly disappointed.

Until this war on the 2’nd amendment lands on the doorstep of it’s political enemies? What is really being “done”?

What’s being done is the continuation of slow erosion on the Bill of Rights and our once Glorious US Constitution by media and the Socialists who control it.

The battle must land on their doorstep. Hitler did not feel the war until it arrived in his bunker.
