In an LGBT—I mean GBTV interview with Glenn Beck, Ted Nugent tells the world that he could have taken out spree killer James Holmes in the darkened theater that horrific morning. ‘Cause he’d practiced for just such an event. “Last week my wife Shemane and I were filming a segment for our Spirit of the Wild show and we were shooting at watermelons surrounded by human silhouette targets just as kind of a competition and from 20 feet and from 20 yards and we were shooting from every imaginable angle, undercover, from sitting, from squatting, from prone position, from behind cover and from in the open, and we never hit an innocent and we never missed the watermelon . . .
And I’m just a guitar player. If a guitar player can neutralize a watermelon from 20 feet ‑‑ and this is with live fire, by the way . . .
Training, having a firearm to neutralize an evil gun maniac is a way to go, and we train for that. And I wish is I would have been in the theater that day.
To which Glenn—a man who told TTAG he supports gun control—replies:
“So do I. So do I.”
Chutzpah. Braggadocio. In any case, be careful what you wish for. [NB: Not from me, obviously.]
