Responsible Gun Owner Ted Nugent Thinks It'd Be Just Nifty If Hillary Got Shot

Guns

As we all know, the National Rifle Association exists to protect the rights of "responsible gun owners" in our nation.


Regularly, it rails against those of us who believe in things like "background checks," chastising us for being so cruel as to not trust that the people we want to inflict such cruelties upon are merely looking to purchase guns for the purpose of self defense and hunting. It is so MEAN, they say, to ever for a second think that a man armed to the teeth with AK-47s in the middle of your local Starbucks may be a threat to you or your loved ones. The organization is so trusted and beloved by Republican lawmakers that Mitch McConnell recently stated that the Senate should not confirm any Supreme Court nominees unless the NRA has given its approval.

Sitting on the board of the NRA is conservative firebrand and child rape advocate Ted Nugent. Here is a thing that Ted Nugent posted to his Facebook the other day!

It is a video of Hillary Clinton being shot.

Get it? It's funny because it's Hillary Clinton being shot! Ostensibly by a gun owner who is mad about gun control and feels it is unnecessary! What a great way to show that, huh! Gun control: It's a bad idea because then who will assassinate presidential candidates that Donald Trump supporter Ted Nugent does not like?

Of course, according to Nugent, the NRA, and most Second Amendment advocates, one of the most important reasons to never implement gun control is that it will prevent people from standing up to a tyrannical government (AKA HILLARY CLINTON), which is of course why the Constitution prohibits sending people to jail for assassinating or attempting to assassinate government officials and totally allows for government coups.

Oddly, one of the reasons many people support gun control measures like background checks and waiting periods is because they (for some reason) think it should actually be more difficult for Responsible Gun Owners to murder people and assassinate politicians.

In fact, it was even why total commie Ronald Reagan supported those things back in the day:

"This nightmare might never have happened if legislation that is before Congress now — the Brady bill — had been law back in 1981.

Named for Jim Brady, this legislation would establish a national seven-day waiting period before a handgun purchaser could take delivery. It would allow local law enforcement officials to do background checks for criminal records or known histories of mental disturbances. Those with such records would be prohibited from buying the handguns."

Of course, this was selfishly motivated by the fact that Reagan and his press secretary somehow did not have a good time being shot by John Hinckley, who was merely protesting a tyrannical government that refused to force Jodie Foster to be his girlfriend.

As RightWingWatch helpfully points out, this is not the first time Ted Nugent has openly advocated for the assassination of politicians he does not care for. In a 2007 speech, he invited Barack Obama to "suck on his machine gun" and suggested Clinton "might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch." Good times!

Clearly, the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun. Unless the good guy with a gun is Ted Nugent and you are Hillary Clinton and he thinks it would be neat if you were dead.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
