While I love a guy who says what he thinks as much as the next guy, Ted does not exactly fit the main stream. Great for him but... he has more skeletons in his closet as than anyone I want representing me anymore. He can talk all he wants buts I am not for providing him a open platform. He needs to tighten up his own act before he mouths off about stuff. Ted, I love ya man but... sheesh your making it hard to defend you sometimes.

He gambled and knew all along he committed a game violation . Alaska is very strict in their game laws like Calfornia. They guard our last frontier wildlife. Im glad they went with it no matter who you are, everyone must follow the rules of the game. Ted, time for you to be ashame and follow like anyone else. Being in the NRA boards is not a passport for game violation.

Keep Ted. The NRA leadersip is too stuffy and needs someone who lightens things up a bit from time to time.

Meh, more drama...

Nugent shot at a bear and "touched" it with an arrow. The bear wasn't mortally wounded, but according to a new law, if your arrow even touches the animal it is now part of your bag limit. Nugent was not aware of the changed law.

Stupid law, but Nugent would have never even been looked at if he hadn't put the footage on his show. That tells me he didn't know it was illegal to shoot the second bear and transport it.

No excuse and he is owning up to it. Some of you are so fair weather I would hate to have you on a jury. Just blow whichever way the wind goes...

But I'm pretty sure that most that are barking about this don't hunt anyway, and have never dealt with the obscurity of game laws.

Im sure Alaska officials would have given him a warning or pass but it s on video. He has shown it on public audience. If they let it go, they be hypocritical. Others follow the rules and everyone should be. They have no recourse but to take action. Ted is no exception, just unlucky. Bad timing and bad action and bad ending.

Agreed. If I remember correctly It was Mr. Nugent that said:

What is it about illegal that you do not understand?

Since he has now admitted and attained that illegal position, how can he speak on anything legal again?

I like Nuge, but that's a piss poor excuse that doesn't carry any weight.

I am a union man and pay my dues. Every once in a while we have a person who wants the benefits the union offers but are to cheap to pay the dues. We call that person a scab.
If you own a gun and enjoy your Second Amendment freedom you should not be bad mouthing the NRA.
I am a life member and proud of it.
We fight every day to protect our freedoms and if it was not for the NRA I guarantee you we would have none.

You say you don't care what the non-shooting public thinks and you have a God given right to own a gun, but just remember it's the non-shooting public that's voting all these anti-gun politicians into office.

We must win the non-shooting public's confidence and support if we are to keep our firearms in this country. Big mouth Ted Nugent is doing nothing to help us fight the battles that matter most.
Yes, that's pretty clear thinking. I guess you realize that you're going to have to be in the minority, now - Right!

If I were, say, a really smart filthy rich international financier, first thing I'd do is buy myself the leadership of some dufus gun owners' organization like the NRA. I mean, think of the possibilities! You could lead a bunch of gullible naive and unsuspecting, 'gun bozos' around all day long as if they had rings in their noses! America's gun owners would already be beaten at their own game; and they wouldn't even realize it! (But I would only do something like this IF I were a really smart filthy rich international financier - OK.)

the ones "on the fence" if they really are "on the fence" have enough sense to know you cant judge an entire segment of the population by its leader, hell look at obama!
The American people didn't elect Barak Obama as President of the United States - The anachronistic Electoral College, 'gifted' us with Obama's presence.

Which is one of the main reasons, 'Why' we should all be very careful about wiping other people's face with our own ill-conceived open carry sentiments. The only thing the vast majority of people are going to see is a MAN WITH A GUN, and not a patriot.

Like it or not other people with whom you disagree aren't, 'dolts'. They're your fellow citizens with thoughts and opinions of their own. Showing the, 'commuter dads' and, 'soccer moms' a little more consideration and respect might just garner more support for our own position, too.

I wish I could say that; but the truth is I've belonged to far too many gun clubs during my life, and was forced to join the NRA at an early age. (Then along came the 1977, 'Cincinnati Revolt'; and I quickly discovered what a stupid stupid mistake I'd made!)

He goes a little overboard sometimes but I'd rather he stay on the NRA board. Anyone who would be dissuaded by his comments is likely already anti-gun and words aren't going to change their mind anyway.

Many causes often defeat themselves by giving in to political correctness.

We now have a "spokesman" that has special friends in the secret service, and can't hunt on federal land, or in Alaska, for the next year.

A distraction and liability we don't need in 2012. Maybe he can insult stay at home moms next.
What did Ted say?
