Rocker Ted Nugent has penned another guest column for the Waco Tribune-Herald in which he addresses the issue of assault weapons. An excerpt follows:
"On numerous occasions each year, I gather around the Nugent family home campfire here in Texas and back in Michigan, and we shoot machine guns.
"Like hundreds of thousands of law-abiding American families, military, law enforcement and civilian, we shoot literally hundreds of millions of rounds of ammo through these amazing creations of ballistic art.
"My idea of 'gun control' is putting as many bullets as I can into the same hole.
"These guns are owned legally in most states, and by more than a half million American families without a hitch. The lies about scary guns couldn't be more intentionally deceptive and more regularly misreported by the media.
"The number of injuries and deaths each week during machine-gun fun by all of us? None. Zero, zilch, nada. Go figure.
"All I know is that when it comes time to have one hell of a fun, laugh-infested Uncle Ted Texas family BBQ party, heroes of law enforcement and military join us for some challenging machine-gun competition."
