Gun enthusiast Ted Nugent to Play Concert in Waco a Week After Shootout Kills 9
Next week rock guitarist and gun-happy NRA Board Member Ted Nugent will play a concert in Waco, a few blocks from the site of the biker gang gunfight that killed nine people and injured 18 on Sunday. Mr. Nugent lives nearby. The shootout started at the Twin Peaks Restaurant, where Thursday is Bike Night.

192 people were arrested and their bail set at $1 million each.  The biker gangs have allegedly sanctioned executions of Waco police.

Texas Town’s Request to Ted Nugent: Play ‘Far, Far Away’

Texas Town's Request to Ted Nugent: Play 'Far, Far Away'

The city of Longview Texas paid $16,250 to keep Ted Nugent from appearing at its municipal Fourth of July celebration. City leaders concluded that Mr. Nugent’s act was not the family-friendly entertainment they had in mind, but his agent claimed their preliminary talks constituted a verbal contract, so the town paid Mr. Nugent a “kill fee.” The 65-year-old rocker, once known for his guitar playing, now stays in the public eye through his racist comments, questionable lyrics, and gun-happy right-wing views.
