The gun zealots were out in full force last week when the National Rifle Association held its national convention in St. Louis.
No. 1 crazy man: Ted Nugent, washed-up rock god and full-bore gunslinger.
Never one for thoughtfulness or carefully reasoned opinion, Nugent ranted and raged at the NRA meeting, even predicting the Obama administrations Nazi-inspired prison camps for good, honest gun-totin' patriots like himself.
Some samples: "We've got four Supreme Court justices who don't believe in the constitution."
And this: "If Barack Obama becomes the President in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."
It's complete fantasy, as are a lot of Obama-bashing from the right. But it's still dangerously irresponsible and, well, a demented lie.
The details are here.
