Ted Nugent Says America Doesn't Have a Gun Problem
"The failed court system, the crime-celebrating prosecutors and attorneys are engineering recidivism"
Published Jul 20, 2021According to the ever-wise Ted Nugent, the issue with violent crime in America isn't due to lack of gun control, it's because of loose sentencing and rampant recidivism.
In one of the cock-rocker's latest livestream rants, Nugent blasted states whose sentencing laws he has deemed too lenient and blamed "96 percent" of America's violent crime problems on repeat offenders:
Dallas, Texas — shame on you. Same law as San Francisco and L.A.: if you steal under $950 worth of merchandise from a business, they won't prosecute you. This is insanity. Crime's out of control. Because you're rewarding criminal behaviour. They don't prosecute people caught with guns in Chicago or Detroit or New York or New Jersey or California — they don't prosecute people violating one of the thousands of gun laws, but the next gun law's gonna stop 'em.
Bad guys need to be locked up. If they shoot or stab people, I don't care if they even miss, that's a dangerous, vicious, evil act. We don't want people capable of dangerous, vicious, evil acts walking our streets. We want them either dead or in a cage — forever.
We're living in engineered recidivism. The failed court system, the crime-celebrating prosecutors and attorneys are engineering recidivism. Ninety-six percent of violent crimes are committed by people that were let out for violent crimes. Here's a little guitar player idea: don't let 'em out.
There isn't a gun problem in America. There is an intentional engineered recidivism problem in America. You wanna stop 96 percent of the violent crimes. Don't let 'em out.
Nugent's claims are in direct opposition to a report posted last month by CNN, which concludes that "in most international studies of recidivism, people convicted of murder or other violence re-offended less than 10 percent of the time."
Of course, the COVID-denying, Fauci-blasting, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-excluded MAGA rocker isn't exactly known for spreading "truth, logic and common sense" — as he calls it — in recent years.
