Ted Nugent: 'Keep And Bear Arms' Means It's Mine, I've Got Some...'And They're Loaded'

Rock star legend and gun rights advocate Ted Nugent, said that the right to keep and bear arms does not need to be re-interpreted.

Speaking at the "Shot Show" in Las Vegas on Jan. 17, Nugent told Guns.com: "We need to raise maximum increased hell with our elected officials saying that the right to keep and bear arms does not need to be re-interpreted."

"That 'keep' means it's mine, you can't have it, and 'bear' means I have some on me right now and they're loaded."

Nugent said that anyone who seeks to undermine the 2nd Amendment must be treated like King George.  He also took a swipe at Attorney General Eric Holder for his involvement in the gun-running scandal, "Fast and Furious."

"Anyone that infringes upon that must be treated like King George," Nugent said.

"And when the number one gun crime in the history of America is a direct result of an attorney general, we the people better wake up - and I think we are waking up.  But, I think this unprecedented threat against individual freedom and the Constitution will be countered with a new voting power in a fist of we the people like no one's ever seen before," he said.
