Whang Dang Sweet Bang-Bang

Ted Nugent, or as I call him, "The Nuge," says all sorts of nutty and yet halfway-sensible things at an NRA rally:

HOUSTON (AP) - With an assault weapon in each hand, rocker and gun rights advocate Ted Nugent urged National Rifle Association members to be "hardcore, radical extremists demanding the right to self defense."

...

"Remember the Alamo! Shoot 'em!" he screamed to applause. "To show you how radical I am, I want carjackers dead. I want rapists dead. I want burglars dead. I want child molesters dead. I want the bad guys dead. No court case. No parole. No early release. I want 'em dead. Get a gun and when they attack you, shoot 'em."

This falls under the category of "Stuff We All Sort of Believe But Aren't Allowed to Say, Unless We're the Motor City Madman."

Apparently a great-grandmother (!) is a fan of "The Nuge" and took his advice to heart:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) β€” A man accused of bursting into a convenience store demanding money was in the hospital Friday β€” shot, authorities said, by the great-great-grandmother working behind the counter.

Janet Grammer was filling in for the regular clerk Thursday afternoon when a man entered the store waving a gun and fired two shot at the back wall.

β€œI think he thought I was an old woman and would just give him the money,” Grammer, 64, said Friday. β€œMy life was at stake. I thought he was going to kill me.”

So she pulled a pistol out from under the cash register and fired once, hitting the man in the chest. He fell to the ground, dropped his gun and then fled, leaving a trail of blood. Grammer fired two more shots as he was running away.

...

Grammer, who has 10 children, 32 grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren, said she worried she had killed the man. β€œAll I could think about was his poor parents,” Grammer said.

She didn't kill him, though. So maybe she needs to listen to State of Shock a couple of more times.

Thanks to NickS for the grandma tip. I can't find who sent the Nuge tip; probably NickS too.
