Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Declares “We’re Not Gonna Take It” Can Be Used As Anti-Assault Rifle Anthem Even Though He’s a Gun Owner


Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider has come out of the closet…as a gun owner who’s against people owning assault rifles.

This evening he declared on Twitter: “I am a gun owner.. That said, HELL YEAH YOU CAN USE “WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT AS YOUR ANTHEM! Assault weapons were never meant for anything but combat!”

This was in response to a Tweet from a fan that reads: “Dee: If we organize and demand an assault weapons ban, may we use your anthem? #notgonnatakeit Yours in rock and the right not to be gunned down..”

And that should tell us a lot. The Twisted Sister fan base definitely owns guns. But it’s time to end these daily mass assassinations. Marjorie Taylor Greene is as wrong as she can be. “Guns kill.” It’s the guns, nothing else.

The two stupidest people I’ve heard in this conversation are Tennessee congressman Ogles and Burchett. How were they elected? I’ve been to Memphis and Nashville, the former a lot of times. No one I met seemed to be this backwards.

Now comes sense from Dee Snider speaking some sense. Listen to him. “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”
