As pressure mounts for lawmakers to tighten gun laws in the wake of the Connecticut school massacre, conservative rocker and Second Amendment advocate Ted Nugent tells Newsmax that “evil criminal monsters will never be deterred by the insanity of gun free zone laws.”

In an exclusive interview, Nugent insists that so-called gun free zones only empower potential killers such as Adam Lanza, who took the lives of 20 first graders on Friday when he opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

“Indisputable statistics show clearly that gun free zones around the globe are always where the most innocent human lives are slaughtered,” insists Nugent, who is on the board of the National Rifle Association.

“The document genocide in Rwanda, Sudan, Germany, Norway, Scotland, England, Canada, North and South Korea and elsewhere prove them wrong again and concludes that people everywhere forced into unarmed helplessness will always be victims of violent crime.”

Nugent, who is a Newsmax contributor, said that two million Americans defend themselves with privately owned firearms every year and he pointed to another school incident where the principal halted a similar disaster by retrieving his handgun from a vehicle.

“Unarmed and helpless is unarmed and helpless,” Nugent insisted. “That so much of our society is entrenched in the irresponsible mindset that unarmed and helpless is an okay condition is inviting such multiple shooting tragedies.”

Nugent said that he dreams of a society where “political correctness and the sheep like behavior that goes with it are discarded” and he drew comparisons to the 9/11 attacks, which called attention to the need for greater air travel security.

“Surely there must be teachers somewhere, like professional pilots after 9-11, that would be willing to be armed, trained and prepared to protect innocent children in their care,” he said.

Nugent added that most mass shootings occur in jurisdictions with “extreme restrictions” on firearms.

“But most telling, again, is the fact that they have all occurred in gun free zones or where for many reasons, no one was armed or prepared to stop the evil doer,” Nugent said.
