Rocker Calls On NRA Members To Make Some Noise

May 6, 2011 by  

Rocker calls on NRA members to make some noiseRock star Ted Nugent closed the annual National Rifle Association (NRA) conference last weekend by challenging pro-gun advocates to step up their public relations efforts.

Nugent, who is a high-profile hunting enthusiast, told a crowd of about 2,000 people that they need to “talk guns all the time,” according to Reuters. On May 1, the musician wrapped up the third and final day of the NRA’s event in Pittsburgh.

“You need to fix everybody in your lives to be absolutely pro-gun,” said Nugent, quoted by the media outlet.

The conference, which drew approximately 70,000 visitors, featured speeches, workshops and more than 400 product exhibitions. Nugent’s remarks about spreading the pro-gun message triggered a standing ovation from gun enthusiasts, many of whom agreed that Second Amendment supporters need to be more vocal.

Spectators were also treated to a display of Nugent’s prowess when he performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” on his electric guitar.

On April 30, former Arkansas Governor and rumored Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee spoke at the NRA conference, according to Describing himself as an unapologetic “gun-clinger,” Huckabee praised the NRA’s membership for helping stifle the liberal anti-gun agenda in Washington, D.C.
