Ted Nugent’s bottom line for his gun-slinging mouth: “I’m an entertainer”

Obama: suck my gun barrel

HUNTER EDUCATION -- This expert from my recent pre-concert interview with rock guitarist Ted Nugent, a right-wing hunting/shooting fanatic, gives sportsmen a lot to chew before deciding whether they want to follow him as a credible spokesman for hunting, shooting sports, conservation -- or politics, for that matter.

  • The video above shows his (fake) gun-slinging taught to then Sens. Obama and Clinton during a concert in Texas.
  • Click the audio link above to hear my question and The Nuge's explanation of the concert rant as well as his response to a hunter education instructor's observation about the way sportsmen should be taught to handle firearms.
