Nugent invited to Obama speech

WASHINGTON, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- A Republican congressman from Texas says he invited gun-advocate rock musician Ted Nugent to be his guest at President Obama's State of the Union address.

Rep. Steve Stockman, himself a strong supporter of gun rights who introduced a bill last month to end all federal gun-free zones around schools, said he was sure Nugent "will have plenty to say" following Obama's Tuesday night speech, The Detroit News reported.

"I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House chamber to hear from President Obama," said Stockman, who also has threatened to file impeachment legislation against the president for pushing gun control.

Nugent, well-known for his fondness for guns, said at the National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis last April that if Obama were to be re-elected, he would "either be dead or in jail by this time next year." The avid hunter also has been fined in Alaska and California in recent years for illegal hunting activities, the newspaper said.
