David Lee Roth on Guns

Was listening to his new show on the radio on the drive in, and when I turned it on, he was going over 3 of the 4 rules of gun safety. He was telling stories on why he believed people should be able to have a gun if they choose, and that he thought safe gun handling should be taught to everyone at an early age. The wording of things wasnt the best, but he was really showing his serious opinions from the sound of things.

He says he keeps a ready gun at home, but doesnt carry or want to carry. Dave also told stories of why he keeps a gun around and how he and his family have been affected by crooks with guns and how they dont want to be victims, so they train regularly, and that just having a gun and thinking it's a built-in man thing to be able to shoot is a way to get killed.

It's still on now if anyone wants to catch it. It's on 94.1 in Philly.

Funny...I seem to remember him being busted for drug posession several times. In most states, that'd bar him from owning guns (especially California). I guess the rules are different for celebrities...

Only if he was convicted of a felony.

I think he did a stint as a paramedic in NYC.

Did he tell people:

"If your thinking about getting a gun, you might as well jump?"

He may have been busted but was he convicted?

I think he meant that jews know how to protect themselves, being persecuted for generations.

I am assuming.

No DLR fans? :(

I'm pretty sure Dave still does do the EMT thing. I kept listening at work on and off and it sounded like he still does. And he is the new morning show in place of Howard from 6-10. It's his second show so far, and it has been mostly clean but still hillarious so far. But anyway...

No matter who it is, and esp a well known person from CA and now NY, going in front of large audiences and saying it's the idiots that dont responsibily operate their guns and not the guns themselves are the problem, how can anyone be upset? Everyone gets excited when Uncle Ted gets in people's faces, but when DLR has a semi-serious discussion, it's a joke.

I was happy to hear it at least. This must be part of that "apathy stage" in those other threads floating around lately.

A well known celebrity who has a jillion listeners makes positive statements about firearms and well, just read most of the comments....:banghead:
Everyone here should call or write and thank him for having the courage to say so (I am).
BTW I'm not a huge Stern fan but he was more pro gun than the many republicans I can name...

Diamond Dave as an EMT...I don't know if I would want to wake up after some accident and see DLR hovering over me telling me "Dude, just relax and chill, we're gonna fix ya' right up."

That would be like some bizarro Twilight Zone episode.

Davis Lee Roth has done more for Sirius Sales in 2 days than Howard Stern did in 6 months. The guy's NOT good.

He was rambling about how he supported the 2 week waiting period and how he had a triple standard with guns... (It's ok if I have one and YOU have one, but I'm not sure about the rest of the people) to his EMT instructor, a woman of about 45 who said she truly felt that gun ownership acted as a deterrent to crime.

So even though it was a painful listen, I listened... I'll be glad next week that I purchased my Sirius so that I can get back to lighthearted fun and professional radio :)

But at least DLR knew how to put on a show in his heyday. Unlike Howard... :barf:

Bravo Kevin-they are both total morons, but I think that Stern takes the all time idiot award.

I stopped listening to stern years ago when he had a LEO on as a guest and stern said he hates guns. I realised he was a liberal washout. stern also praises michale moore and that peta whore pam anderson.

What does it matter that an entertainer does or does not like guns? In the realm of guns, is Roth and expert, historian, or political figure trying to protect our rights? Is he somebody that has been an outspoken advocate of guns and gun rights? No? Then he is just some guy. Besides that, he is an annoying guy.

Now there's a class act - David Lee Roth.....:barf:

Howard Stern & his minions = morally bankrupt.

The gun culture need more shining examples like these two, to educate and promote our values to newcomers and our youth.

Only if he was convicted of a felony.Not if you live in Ohio.

In Ohio, you are prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm if you have been convicted of any drug offense - even a misdemeanor.

i'd say it matters because actor/entertainers have big audiences that worship the ground they walk on. if my man David Lee says "guns are good" then guns are good, period. far better than an actor/entertainer that says "guns are bad", let alone the scum actor/entertainer that says "guns are bad", and then uses guns in a movie, to make a living. also any pro-gun/gun-owner/RKBA person matters in my book. he will be heard louder and farther than you in a this forum.

I know DLR was busted for buying a dime bag in Washington Square in NYC some time ago. I suspect he was never prosecuted.

I stopped listening to stern years ago when he had a LEO on as a guest and stern said he hates guns. I realised he was a liberal washout. stern also praises michale moore and that peta whore pam anderson.

I've never heard Stern say anything anti gun and in fact, he is mostly pro gun. His support of Michael Moore has more to do with his feud with the FCC and religious fanatics more than anything else. His support of Pam Anderson has nothing to do with PETA and everything to do with boobs.

You are correct sir! Not that it will mean much, as it seems when some folks dislike someone it matters not what good they do....

Actually there are folk like the ones at the JPFO but a larger portion are surprisingly very anti-gun. I have two Jewish friends. One is more of a gun nut than the character from Tremors and loads better ammo. The other has little experience with guns other than what they've been told by family, school and media. They are highly liberal and very much complacent about non gun ownership. But they are open to learning more about the history of guns wrt it's use to prevent or slow down attrocities. Eventually I'll get them to the range.

david lee is of course jewish,so he probably knows his beans about self preservation.

Just think of Aerosmith for gods sake. Stephen and Joe each own a set of full autos.

First, there is a huge difference between being busted and being convicted. Celebrities, especially rich ones, can often time avoid punishment and conviction with a good lawyer.

Second, whether the Aerosmith guys were convicted or not, my guess is that they don't own any full autos. Rather, I would assume for a variety of legal and tax purposes that their guns are owned by corporations. The fact that they control the corporation of course makes them appear to own the guns, but if I had to make an educated guess I would say they were corporate property

Im a huge Opie & Anthony fan. For those who dont know who they are they are Howards Sterns Nemises. They do a "similar type" show except alot better and they are on XM. Cool thing is Anthony is a huge gun freak. He talks about his AR's and tactical shotguns all the time. He is also in the process of grtting his pistol license(he lives just outside of NYC)

What if you made a regular old uneducated, totally speculative, wild ass guess? What would be the difference? :)
