More assault rifles to stop evil, the same tune Ted Nugent sang after the Giffords massacre last year:
We can still be relaxed and comfortable, but mentally prepared and more tuned in to our surroundings. Be prepared to stop evil in its tracks and live.
On Twitter, this week, according to the Seattle newspaper:
“We pray for all victims & loved ones of demonshooter in CO & we SALUTE the brave warriors who saves lives IF only they would hav [sic] had a good gun,” Nugent declared.
It is at best questionable whether a shootout in a darkened theater would have saved lives or upped the casualty count.
Nugent, on Glenn Beck’s radio show, yesterday:
NUGENT: But dear God in heaven, doing nothing is not an option. Training, having a firearm to neutralize an evil gun maniac is a way to go, and we train for that. And I wish I would have been in the theater that day.
“Heed these words, my disciples: When the crowd has not machine guns, it cannot protect itself from evil carrying a machine gun and a Glock.” — Chapter 2, The Compleat Sayings of American Jesus.
Not everyone who owns a gun can possibly be so ill in the head. It’s a pity they lack the nerve to make changes at the NRA.
