Last week, I wrote an article about the SHOT Show in Las Vegas and how NBC Sports was pathetically tone-deaf by sponsoring the event. As I mentioned, the NRA had not one but three different booths, and Bushmaster, the manufacturer of the assault rifle used by the Sandy Hook shooter, had two different booths. So it comes as no surprise that aging rock star, secessionist and draft dodger Ted Nugent was there, too. It was the largest gun show in the world so, naturally, the rogues gallery of gun fetishists were on hand.
And the Secret Service should probably have another chat with Nugent after what he said from the floor of the SHOT Show.
Yes, Nugent not only threatened the president again, but he implied that he and his “buddies” would stage some sort of geriatric armed revolt if the president continues to push for new gun safety laws. I used the phrase “another chat” because this is the second time in less than a year that Nugent has popped off with some sort of not-so-subtle threat against the president. Rewind back to April, 2012 when Nugent said at the annual NRA Convention, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” The Secret Service responded to that one by paying a visit to Nugent’s compound. Oh, and you might recall how, at a concert back in 2007, Nugent said that Barack Obama can “suck on my machine gun.”
