Ted Nugent Acting Crazy With a Gun

A business owner, NRA member, and newspaper columnist in South Dakota is unhappy with Ted Nugent, and it’s easy to see why.

Frank Carroll, co-owner of Professional Forest Management, LCC, which hosted a 2013 NRA banquet in Crazy Horse, South Dakota, pulled no punches in an August 12 column condemning not only Nugent’s use of offensive language, but the lack of punitive action by NRA leaders.

I for one would take the NRA a bit more serious if they got rid of Nugent.

As I've said before, Pro 2A folks are at times their own worst enemies in the effort to convince the non-gun-owning public of our good intentions.

I listened to the Nuge back in the day and I'm glad he found his way in life, but he is rather annoying.

I'd party and burn some powder with him, but I'm not sure he's what we need for representation.

I always love how any group right of center is expected to shed itself of anyone that is considered controversial, but everyone left of center is embraced by that establishment no matter how far off the reservation or how obvious a lunatic they are.

Good point: we worry far more about our image than the other side does. However, "eccentric" and "off base" seems to be required to belong over on that side.

And I have said on other occasions that I think we oughta take off the gloves, but subhuman and other slurs is a bit overdone for me. I might call Barry amoral, but I'd stop short of subhuman.

Likewise. But he (Nugent) is free to express himself however he chooses, but to be quite honest if the left is willing to say worse about Sarah Palin, Bush, the Tea Party, him, Rush Limbaugh, or any other conservative--and get away with it--then they have no right to complain about the words or rhetoric anyone uses to go after someone on their preferred side.

Besides, they don't want to silence Nugent because he's objectionable for what terms he says, but because they find the right he's trying to protect is objectionable.

You, along with others who cite Free Speech[tm] miss the point.

Nuge is free to run his mouth as he pleases.

But an organization is also free, indeed has the obligation to look at the effect its leaders' and spokespersons' antics have on its objectives and to make adjustments accordingly.

So if Nuge is becoming an embarrassment and a PR problem, he should be invited to take a lower profile in the NRA. This isn't to punish him, nor to control what he says. Indeed, if anything, it frees him to be even more outlandish. Rather, it's to preserve the image and standing of the organization.

That's critical to a lobbying organization.
