Ted Nugent’s SOTU Invite Is The Best News Gun Control Advocates Have Heard All Week

The gun rights community may not be doing itself any favors by giving Ted Nugent a seat at the State of the Union speech Tuesday night.

<snip>

Glaze and other gun control proponents often point to surveys of gun owners that showed broad support for expanded background checks, the chief post-Newtown goal of gun control advocates and a measure the NRA leadership opposes.

Nugent’s role as a political bomb thrower and an especially incendiary critic of President Obama gives him a strong gravitational pull for TV cameras covering the SOTU. And that means more coverage for Obama’s gun violence plan, according to gun control advocates.

<snip>

“The country is having a once in a generation debate, and the NRA offers armed guards, Steve Stockman and Ted Nugent,” Glaze said. “They picked a strange moment to unilaterally disarm.”

1. Ted will be press conferencing after the SOTU, I understand.

Ah the spectacle of it all. Better than the Superbowl.

I think Ted still has cat scratch fever. 'You know you got it when you're going insane,' after all.

3. I don't want to see one camera cut away to any shots of him

he is not newsworthy.

I can't see how someone who has publically threatened the President's life can come that close to his person, period. The administration should file a restraining order against him to keep him out of the chamber.

4. you don't want cameras on him. You don't think he's newsworthy but you think

the admin should file a restraining order against him. That makes NO sense at all. Way to make him headline every story in the MSM ahead of the SOTU. Way to completely eclipse the President and what he has to say.

13. says you...

your post was nothing but instigation and antagonism.

My postings are something you should put on ignore if you're that easily provoked.

5. The Split Screen Is Sure To Be Classic...

...the cables won't be able to resist....a shot of the First Lady with the mother of the 15-year old girl senselessly murdered in Chicago right after appearing at the Innauguarion vs. Mr. Poop'n'Pantswangdangsweetpoontang...looking like he lost his duck blind.

The NRA lives in its own bubble and surely must feel like they're showing us a thing or two by loosing "terrible teddy"...and hope that the stupidity he spews will result in even more gun sales and NRA memberships. Yes, this country is THAT stuck on stupid...

6. wish ONE reporter

7. Ted Nugent will probably yell out something.

Or make obvious gestures.

8. Suits Me.


Nugent is a gift from a loving deity to the gun control movement. The more he shoots his mouth off, the more he harms the pro-gun militancy forces, which have had way too much power for way too long in this country.
