The Nuge Joins Forces With Ken Buck

Ted Nugent.

Ted Nugent.

Back in April, we took note of a photo Tweeted by Rep. Ken Buck from his Washington, D.C. office, proudly holding an AR-15 assault rifle with Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina. This photo struck us as a bit curious, since Washington, D.C. has very strict gun laws that outlaw Buck’s AR-15 rifle and the 30-round magazine attached to it.

After a morning of interesting back and forth between inquiring reporters and the D.C. Attorney General’s office, who at first insisted the weapon was illegal and that they were “looking into” the matter, the U.S. Capitol Police stated they had allowed Buck to display the weapon in his office under “regulations” that permit members of Congress and their staff to possess unloaded guns on Capitol grounds. The manner of how that regulation comports with local D.C. law was left unresolved, but Rep. Buck still has his AR-15 on display in the Cannon Office Building by all accounts.

Curiously, though, today we received this fundraising email blast on Rep. Buck’s behalf from aging rock star and famous “gun guy” Ted Nugent, which seems to imply a very different outcome to last April’s little brouhaha:

If we don’t stand our ground, Barack Obama (or worse, President Hillary Clinton) will take away our guns that we rely on to defend our homes, families, and country.

That’s why I need you to hear something completely insane…

You know they tried to toss a US Congressman in jail for having his legally owned AR-15 in his office?

That’s right – my friend Congressman Ken Buck was under investigation by the Washington, DC, Metro Police because the city’s Left-wing gun regulations are so restrictive, most people can’t even legally exercise their God-given Constitutional right to bear arms (even in a private place like your office)!

He put a picture online of Congressman Trey Gowdy and himself admiring his awesome American flag wrapped AR-15 and some vindictive liberal gun-hater sent it to the police. The rest is history…

Rep. Ken Buck (right), with his gun.

So, if The Nuge means this blog when he says “some vindictive liberal gun-hater,” because we were the ones who posted the photo of Buck with his AR-15 that led to news inquiries, we guess that’s one thing. But in terms of the rest of the story “being history,” well, our readers know that Ken Buck didn’t face any charges or sanctions for his assault rifle on Capitol grounds–in fact, it’s still there.

But that version of the story, otherwise known as the true story, wouldn’t raise nearly as much money.

That’s why I’m helping Congressman Ken Buck. He’s a guy we can trust who will fight for the values we share – especially when it comes to the 2nd Amendment. Hell, they tried to get him thrown into jail for exercising his Second Amendment rights!

That’s my kind of guy. Bold, brave, and packing heat in his office to scare off liberals.

As our longtime readers know, this isn’t the first time that The Nuge has weighed in on a Colorado political matter. Ted Nugent endorsed Tom Tancredo for governor in 2014, which because a lively sidenote in that race after Nugent denounced President Barack Obama in a radio interview as a “communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel.” Nugent also said of our state following the passage of 2013’s gun safety bills, “if ever there was a poster child for apathy, disconnect, laziness, and abandonment of We the People, and moral dereliction, it is Colorado.”

We can assume from the former statement that Nugent, like Buck, “loses his appetite” in the presence of America’s first black president. But we would kind of like to know if Buck agrees with Nugent in his assessment of the state Buck represents in Congress.

Needless to say, we hope not.

    Allow me to correct The Nuge's statement:

    If we don’t stand our ground, Barack Obama (or worse, President Hillary Clinton) will take away our guns that we rely on to leave lying around for our kids to play with, accidentally (or on purpose) shoot their friends, or themselves; commit suicide, sometimes taking family members with us, or commit mass murder on completely innocent strangers in the hope of a gloriously public suicide.

    Besides, an extra 30,000 gun deaths each year is a drop in the bucket.

    The Nuge's virulent case of brain rot isn't getting any better apparently.

    The fact that my Congressman is anywhere near this Patriot filthy draft dodger should be disturbing to anyone in CD-4. 

  3. MapMaker says:

    Wait! I thought the Nuge was being silenced, in jail or dead.

    The only people that will come to endanger him and take away his guns are the police.

    So, aside from the qualities listed above, he's also a wanna' be cop killer.

    That's today's Republican party for you.

    I have no idea if this will work. If not, do a You Tube inquiry for Amboy Dukes-Journey to the Center of the Mind-Detroit Music Awards, 2009  (40 years on for the original band!).

    Big talk from a puerile pus*y and cowardly draft dodger.

    These hairy-assed armchair commandos and wannabe "macho" GOP pencil-dicks are hilarious — tin-horn blowhards and paper tigers, every damned one of 'em.

    Ted Nugent intentionally shit his pants and feigned mental illness to avoid United States military service. Someone else was then forced to serve in his place. That individual may have died, or been horribly injured or disfigured. But that’s OK, because at least we got “Cat Scratch Fever.” And because freedom.

    Now he shits his pants and flaunts his actual mental illness to raise money for the immoral, treasonous miscreants known as republican politicians. Same shit (inside or outside the pants), different decade. And those who fall again and again for such outrageously transparent and manipulative cons are deeply, profoundly, pathetically stupid, and should be pitied.

    • Conserv. Head Banger says:

      Funny again. I can name some Republican politicians who generally aren't immoral and treasonous. And how about good old Chuck Schumer stabbing the President in the back on the Iran accord? I can almost pity you for being so angry, but that’s how it is sometimes.   C.H.B.

      • BlueCat says:

        The only difference between the sane Republican pols and the crazies is in the rhetoric. They all vote for the same crazy discredited things; voodoo economics, enshrining their alleged religious beliefs in legislation aimed at controlling people's sex and reproductive lives, money as speech, corporations as people, suppressing "those" people's  votes, fighting every regulation that puts the general good above maximizing profit for the few. In practical terms there's not a dime's worth of difference between the so called reasonable Rs and the crazies. Show me a Republican majority legislative body with priorities an iota different than those of the so called fringe. It' all fringe now, CHB.  Ruffles and Flourishes BC.

        This sounds a lot like a religious nut job claiming that he has plenty of evidence against evolution, then acting as if this assertion is the evidence.

    I guess the Colorado "conservatives" have decided to go full militia this cycle – not even try to hide it. Nugent, repeal the magazine limit … when does Cliven Bundy and the Oath Keepers show up in Denver and point AR-15s (15 round mind you) at the state capitol and stare down the legislature?

  7. Big Time says:

    Coming to an oil & gas or mining patch near you soon:

    "The owners of a Montana gold mine sent a letter to the U.S. Forest Service earlier this month warning its employees to stay off the owners' property.

    "Anyone entering onto the White Hope Mine, without previous coordination, will be charged" and arrested under Montana code, the letter read, according to court documents.

    "At no time will weapons be allowed onto the White Hope Mining Claim," the letter concluded.

    Except there are weapons on the White Hope Mining Claim, in the hands of armed militia members the mine owners recruited to protect their claim. And the feds aren't letting the aggression stand."

    I hope Coloradans and there representatives understand that voting to allow full access to 15, 30+ rounds and semi auto weapons is simply arming the militia movement – it's not about the freedom to fire 30+ rounds at the range or defend against intruders with overwhelming firepower … IT IS ABOUT ARMING THE MILITIAS WHO THEN SHOW UP TO FIGHT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
