In a new interview with “The Chuck Shute Podcast”, ANVIL frontman Steve “Lips” Kudlow was asked if he would ever debate with rocker Ted Nugent.
Lips responded, saying:
“It’s interesting. He’s definitely got different views, especially when it comes to m*rijuana; we’d probably be at each other’s throats over that. But a lot of what he says is truth, logic and common sense. You can get angry at me — go ahead — but when you tell people the truth, they usually get pissed off, and that’s what a lot of people get when they hear Ted talk.
“I’m an environmentalist and so is he, but we actually have a lot of places where we are in complete f*cking sync — there’s no question about it,” he continued.
“There’s a lot of things that I completely agree with him — no question about it.
“Certainly, if I was born in Detroit and was raised there, I’d believe that owning a gun is a necessity and a God-given right… I agree with Ted — making guns illegal only puts guns in the hands of criminals… Unarmed and helpless is unarmed and helpless. What can I say?
“There’s a lot of things that he says that make sense,” Lips added.
“The other thing is statistically — he talks about statistics. He never says anything without the backing of real hard statistics. Gun-free zones have the highest f*cking murder rates. They do. It’s just as simple as that.
