Ted Nugent has had his say on the recent spate of mass shootings that have taken place in America. He said, “this kind of stuff could be stopped”.
The latest shooting took place in San Jose, where a California transit employee killed nine co-workers before taking his own life. Speaking on Thursday, authorities said that three handguns were recovered at the Sant Clara Valley Transportation Authority property.
They initially had thought that the gunman had only carried two.
“This kind of stuff could be stopped”
Nugent addressed the San Jose killings in a Facebook video recorded live.
Branding the news reports “propaganda explosions”, Nugent went on to say, “So we had a horrible shooting in San Diego. And then someone will criticize us for offering thoughts and prayers to the victims. Well, we do offer thoughts and prayers to all victims. And, you know, this kind of stuff could be stopped”.
Nugent continued, “So there’s a shooting in San Diego by a guy who has been reported to the government officials numerous times that he rapes his wife, he rapes his ex-wife, he has stated numerous times to the people in his life, ‘I wanna kill people. I’m really upset down there at the VTA, Valley Transit Authority. I’d like to kill those people”.
“And so the people who heard these threats of violence called the people in charge, people with authority… And right away, the news goes, ‘He probably used one of those assault weapons, those military assault weapons, to kill that many people.’ No, he used two handguns. The San Diego shooter used two handguns. ‘Well, where did he get ’em?’ I don’t know. Ace Hardware? Or the same place that the Crips and Bloods get ’em. Or maybe the MS-13 get ’em. Maybe they got ’em from Eric Holder (former Attorney General of the United States) and Barack Obama (former president of the United States)”.
Nugent criticised Biden
In this video, Nugent also took aim at Joe Biden. The musician criticised Biden’s choice to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). He also urged his native country to get rid of “Gun free zones“.
“Hey, Mr. Newscaster, he didn’t use an AR-15 — he had two handguns. And you know how he killed all those people? It was freakboy Biden‘s dream. It was David Chipman‘s dream where these people died, just like in every instance where the most innocent lives are lost”, he said.
“It’s in David Chipman‘s dream, it’s in Sarah Brady‘s (former prominent advocate for gun control in the United States) dream, it’s in Barack Obama‘s dream zone of gun-free zones. And we still accept it”, he also added.
“My fellow Americans, you wanna save lives? Uncle Ted’s got the answer. Get everybody in your life to make sure they don’t drink and drive. Make sure they don’t buy chemicals that destroy their brain and eat enough food to turn ’em into sperm whales. That’s how you save lives”.
Nugent also criticised the Democrats for implementing gun free zones. He said they “like you to lose control and to be unarmed and helpless. What a curse. What a demonic decree. That another man can possibly tell you, ‘No, I’m afraid you can’t defend yourself in these areas”.
Nugent had previously revealed that he was unsure if he was going to survive after testing positive for Covid-19, despite previously denying its existence. More on that here.
