Nugent compares gun owners to Rosa Parks [View all]

Ted Nugent has shot his mouth off once again on the gun-control issue, this time comparing gun owners to civil-rights icon Rosa Parks, who broke barriers and defied segregation when she refused a bus driver's order to give up her seat to a white passenger in 1955.

Speaking to WorldNetDaily, Nugent -- a particularly vocal opponent of gun control and the Obama Administration -- made the comparison in reaction to reports that President Obama might issue an executive order to combat gun violence, following the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., as well as other tragic shootings.

"There will come a time when the gun owners of America, the law-abiding gun owners of America, will be the Rosa Parks, and we will sit down on the front seat of the bus, case closed," Nugent told WND.
