Ted Nugent to attend Obama’s State of the Union

February 11, 2013 11:52 am  

(Washington Times) – While other members of Congress are hosting gun-control advocates for Tuesday’s State of the Union address, Rep. Steve Stockman has given one of his visitor’s gallery tickets to Ted Nugent, the conservative gun-rights supporter.

“I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama,” Mr. Stockman said in a statement announcing the choice. “After the address I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say.”

After the Connecticut school shooting rampage last year, Mr. Obama announced he would push for major changes to the country’s gun laws, and he is expected to renew that call in his Tuesday speech.

To add pressure, gun-control supporters in Congress have decided to invite victims of gun crimes to sit in the galleries.

Mr. Stockman’s decision, though, adds a prominent gun-rights advocate and outspoken conservative to the gallery. Mr Nugent is a member of the National Rifle Association’s board.
