Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, in remarks published in the March issue of Playboy Magazine, says gun-control advocates are ignorant about human nature.

The one-time professional wrestler, who has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, noted that he had a sign posted in his home reading "We Don't Dial 911" -- apparently to warn intruders that he will take care of them himself rather than call police.

"You think taking away our guns is going to eliminate man's hostility toward man? Not true," Ventura said in the interview. "Gun-control people don't know what they're talking about. They're ignorant. They believe things without researching or understanding."

Ventura told the magazine he favored cremation, calling cemeteries "the biggest waste of land going"; said he only drank alcohol once or twice a year, but when he did, it was to get drunk; and predicted that if marijuana were legalized, "we could build all the pro stadiums we'd need and probably a bunch of schools too" with the profits.
