In case there was any question, the National Rifle Association has revealed once and for all that they are an ill-fitting collection of “gun-clingers” and fearmongers when they voted to bring Ted Nugent on once again as a 3-year board member.

Nugent has been in the news consistently the past couple of years for anti-Semitic remarks, calling for the hanging of the president and first lady, as well as several other batsh*t remarks and declarations.

Nugent is clearly an unstable individual, but he is allowed to not only own guns, but is recognized as a distinguised member of the gun-owner club. Endorsing Trump may have been a stupid thing for the NRA to do, but putting Nugent back on the board was possibly even more idiotic.
