Ted is one of the FEW Americans who speak so strongly. IMO more of us should speak our hearts and minds just as strongly. He isn't crude, loud or obnoxious in his statements. Many in the anti-gun crowd state their points much more loudly and crudely and it's acceptedas main stream. It's the PC thing to an extent.A little too strongly stated for my English sensibilities but the core point I agree with.
Laws can and will always be manipulated by the 'bad guys' to their own advantage but it most certainly makes more sense to me for the huge proportion of basically decent people to have the right to defend themselves against criminal actions in any reasonable way they see fit.
