Ted Nugent is one of the people in the popular culture who makes no apologies for who he is, what he believes and says. In his latest op-ed piece I found on CNN he puts forth the case for people to be armed in order to protect themselves and their loved ones. For every horrifying act like Virginia Tech there are many incidents where legally armed civilians are able to protect themselves or others because they are armed or aware or both. I believe the 2nd Amendment is there for this and to protect us from those who would oppress us. Countries where the guns are taken from law abiding citizens had no protection from these dangers. Yes, there are wack-jobs like the killer at Virginia Tech and other places, but they are the exception, not the rule and if it were not a gun obtained legally they would get one illegally.
Read the op-ed piece and decide for yourself.
