Naval Support Activity, Naples, Italy (Jun. 1, 2004) - The "Motor City Madman," Ted Nugent, wails away on his guitar during a recent concert for Sailors and their families at the United Service Organization (USO) sponsored concert held at Naval Support Activity, Naples, support site in Gricignano. Nugent was joined by country music star Toby Keith, who also performed some recently released songs. Nugent also is also a spokesman for National Field Archers Association (NFAA), Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), Big Brothers & Big Sisters, and the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) law enforcement program. Both singers will also be traveling to Germany, Kosovo and the Persian Gulf during the tour. U.S. Navy photo by Photographer's Mate 2nd Class Lenny Francioni (RELEASED)
Ted Nugent, the camouflage-wearing rock singer and forceful advocate of the Second Amendment, arrived on Capitol Hill today as the guest of Republican Rep. Steve Stockman for the State of the Union address.
At a press conference, he described in particularly colorful terms what he thinks is wrong with President Barack Obama’s gun policy. (RELATED VIDEO: Ted Nugent tells Piers Morgan to leave gun-rights advocates the “hell” alone)
“The current firepower consumer orgy that brings a smile to our faces here is a statement by America: Don’t tread on me,” Nugent said. “If you even hint that you are going to ban this ammo or this firepower, we are going to buy it in such quantities as to make your attempted ban virtually impossible to enforce.”
