Rocker Ted Nugent has always been something of a loose cannon, but he sure seems to be reaching for the nutter butter stars now that public opinion is calling for a conversation about gun control. “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 WorldNetDaily. We’d joke that Rosa Parks is spinning in her grave right now, but that would falsely imply that Rosa Parks would ever care what Ted Nugent said or did about anything. Ever.
Of course, comparing himself to one of the most famous civil rights activists of all time is par for the insane course with Ted Nugent. Check out the other bizarre Nuge quotes that we hand-selected to round out the 5 most insane Ted Nugent quotes. Or you can check out literally anything he puts on Twitter. It’s your call!
Mountain man, rocker and a few cards short of a full deck Ted Nugent was hit with a $1,750 fine after illegally killing a deerÃ¢â‚¬Â¦while the cameras were rolling. Unlike most people (but very much like most reality stars), Nugent made the mistake of committing the crime while filming his show Spirit of the Wild for the Outdoor Channel.
According to a Northern California court, the “Cat Scratch Fever” singerÃ‚Â unlawfully used a bow and arrow to take down a spiked buck, a pre-teen dear characterized by small antlers that are considered too young to hunt. In Ted’s defense, its probably pretty difficult to get a good look at a deer’s antlers while you are busy shooting it. Oh, and did we mention there were two wardens standing there watching Ted do it?
According to California Department of Fish and Game spokesman Patrick Foy, the wardens “watched him appear to shoot a spiked buck, which is an illegal buck to take, because it’s too small. And he had it right there on television, and it wasn’t live, it was taped.” So basically Nugent recorded his own episode of COPS, made an agreement with a TV station to air it, and then broadcast it to America. We would ask why the wardens didn’t try to stop him, but let’s be honest; we’ve all seen pictures of Ted Nugent.Ã‚Â
