Ted Nugent steps down from NRA board after 26 years

All good things must come to an end eventually. However, some partings are particularly difficult to take.

Ted Nugent will be stepping down from his position on the board of directors for the National Rifle Association, the Washington Times reported. The musician and activist has served for 26 years.

“The time has come for me to face the dangers of burning the candle at both ends,” the 72-year-old explained in his resignation letter. While he didn’t elaborate, the 72-year-old rock guitarist will continue touring in July 2022.

“I salute you and thank you for your never ending dedication to fight for our right to keep and bear arms, and though not sitting on the board with you, I will indeed be in the heat of battle on the not so main streets of America every damn day, as always,” Nugent said in his letter. In his quarter-century on the board, Nugent has no doubt been the NRA’s most outspoken public advocate.

Nugent went onto say he was “honored and humbled” to have served for so long and pledged to continue standing up to the “evil forces” opposed to Second Amendment rights. “I was not voted onto the board as an accountant, administrator, paper shuffler or bureaucrat, but rather to lead the charge of the good guys against the bad guys in this vile culture war that has reached a deafening roar,” he said.

By the time Nugent joined the NRA board of directors, he had already been an accomplished musician for decades. The “Cat Scratch Fever” artist left an indelible mark on classic rock, including his 2008 release, “I Am the NRA” that heavily promoted his pro-gun, pro-America stance.

President Joe Biden has repeatedly called for disarming Americans through gun control throughout his career. Most recently, he used a mass shooting in California last spring as another call to disarm Americans, according to NBC News.

Now more than ever, Second Amendment rights are under attack. The leadership from the NRA has made sure the right to bear arms has remained sacrosanct even as spineless Republicans have waffled and rolled over on other issues. Nugent’s exit is disheartening but understandable considering the decades he’s already given to the cause.

I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.
