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


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.

The outspoken rocker will be a guest of Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), one of the most vocal opponents of new gun control legislation following the Newtown, Conn., school massacre. But proponents of things like creating universal background checks and other gun regulations predicted on Monday that Nugent’s appearance will be a boon to their side and make it harder for gun rights advocates to make their case.

“If there’s better evidence that the NRA’s Washington lobbyists have lost their way, I can’t think of it,” Mark Glaze, director of New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, told TPM Monday. “They keep finding new ways to alienate their own members, which is a strange way to run a membership organization.”

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.

1. I agree, Ted Nugent should be the posterboy for why gun control is needed

No sane person would think this guy should be allowed to own guns...



He needs to be hung around the neck of every single person who supports the NRA, if they are going to keep him on their Board of Directors we need to make them defend that decision.

3. This is Timothy McVeigh level nutbaggery

Quite a few right wing nutbags are going off the reservation lately. More than a few have been big fans of Nugent level rhetoric. Makes you wonder how many more McVeighs and Rudolphs there are out there.

4. Meet the NRA's Board of Directors



Ted Nugent

At the NRA's 2012 annual conference, the Nuge announced, "If Barack Obama becomes the next president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," prompting a meeting with the Secret Service.

5. If anyone had threatened to kill Bush out loud while he was "President",

that person would be in jail for a long time, and certainly not allowed anywhere near the president.

This sucks.
