Ted Nugent: Why gun sales are surging
Sunday, February 08, 2009
One sector of the American economy that is booming with the new administration is the absolute orgy of guns and ammunition sales, although I am certain President Barack Obama won’t say anything about this positive economic news.
I read more than one report of the surge of civilian firepower sales when it appeared that Obama would be elected.
Reason: Freedom lovers do not trust Obama.
His choice of Eric Holder to be attorney general bolsters that distrust.
Like Obama, Holder is a gun-control zealot —typical of the loony, anti-freedom wing of the Democratic Party.
Do not believe the president’s thinly veiled statements about supporting an individual’s right to own guns. Rather, review these men’s previous, career-long, freedom-restricting, gun-grabbing statements.
Holder consistently has supported gun bans and raising the age at which someone can purchase a weapon. He’s supported registration and licensing, waiting periods, and his all-time favorite and the felon’s dream: gun-free zones.
Losing in court
Last year Holder signed an amicus brief in support of the Washington, D.C., ban on all handguns and the use of a gun for self-defense in D.C. homes.
He stated that the Second Amendment wasn’t meant for individuals but was only intended for government militias.
The Supreme Court found otherwise. It repealed DC’s anti-freedom, pro-crime gun-control law. The Supreme Court voted for freedom. The good guys won.
Mysteriously, when Holder worked for President Bill Clinton and was in charge of the instant background check system, the system was routinely broken and off-line. Miraculously, when the Bush administration took over in 2001 the system rarely broke down. I smell a Fedzilla ratfink.
Truth is, what Holder really supports is more law-abiding citizens being victimized by recidivistic, violent punks on parole.
While he is personally protected by heavily armed law-enforcement officers, he does not believe you and I have a right to protect ourselves and our loved ones with a gun. He’s a hypocrite.
Our founding fathers supported an individual’s right to own guns. Unlike Obama and Holder, those vanguards of freedom understood that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness can not be achieved without being able to protect yourself and your loved ones from human scum who would deny you your fundamental God-given rights.
What our new president and his attorney general obviously want is control. Studying other gun-grabbing regimes of the past, they know the first thing that needs to be done to turn us from citizens to subjects is to disarm us.
My advice to American freedom lovers: Buy more guns and ammo, and join the National Rifle Association.
