Bryan Miller Protests Nugent

Says Bryan Miller:

“Nugent is a promoter of violence,” said Miller, a Haddonfield, N.J, native whose brother died in a 1994 shooting.

“He believes guns are the way you settle conflict. That’s immoral.”

By that standard the Haddonfield, New Jersey police are promoters of violence.  They aren’t carrying firearms to tickle criminals into submission, they are meant to defend the officers.  Miller doesn’t seem to get the difference between predatory violence, and protective violence.

The odd thing is that we only had 150 people for Nugent.  He usually draws big crowds.  I suspect the 150 dollars a head was a bit rich for his fan base.  Still, the anti-gun protesters managed sixteen, and I’m betting most of them are friends of Miller.  Looks like the Quakers are involved too:

“When Jesus said love your enemies, I think he probably meant don’t kill them,” said Joan Huston, of Elizabethtown. “I feel really sad when I hear God’s name in connection with [gun rights].”

This is not new.  Quakers have been trying to disarm Pennsylvanians for years.  Years ago, back when this was wild country, Quakers were happy to free ride off other folks’ willingness to use protective violence.  In the 20th century, they advocate disarmament, for Quaker and non-Quaker alike.  People always talk about the religious right wanting to use government shove their beliefs down everyone else’s throats.  Do those same folks want to condemn the Quaker religious left for doing the same thing?

  1. And the police often/always have better equpiment than the populace they are supposed to be protecting… so, by Bryan’s “logic”, they are promoting copious quantities of violence.

    Also, I wonder if Bryan’s “that’s immoral” comment would stand in the face of the military using guns to settle conflicts threatening our country, or the police using guns to possibly keep Bryan alive… Somehow, I doubt it.

  2. “And would you care to provide the exegesis for when Jesus said that if you didn’t have a sword then you ought to sell your very cloak and buy one? Don’t worry, I’ll give you a minute.”

  3. Uhm…I’m assuming she’s unfamiliar with Matthew 26:52: “Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.” Read it in context and it becomes very clear that it’s Jesus specifically telling someone to kill a man…an oft misunderstood quote which is used to indicate the opposite.

    To say that the commandment “Thou shalt not kill” also rules out killing is likewise ignorant as, later in Genesis, as part of the verses which instruct how to apply the Commandments as law we get: “Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man.” (Genesis 9:6)

    When Ted Nugent rants about innocent victims retaliating against those who would commit violent acts for their own gain…he is 100% in line with the Bible…self-defense is a natural right.

  4. If Gun Contronl is such a good thing then I guess Adolf Hitler is a good guy. Those who support gun control support Hilter’s belives. Giun Control is the reason why 6 million Jews where killed in the holocost is because of Gun Control read your history book and find out it is the truth.
