Ted Nugent agrees to plea deal over illegal killing of black bear in Alaska
CNN ^ | 4-21-12 | Chelsea Carter

(CNN) -- Rocker and avid hunter Ted Nugent has agreed to pay a fine, serve probation and record a public service announcement as part of a deal to plead guilty to transporting an illegally killed black bear in Alaska, according to court documents. The plea deal, filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Anchorage, Alaska, stems from federal allegations that arose during a bear hunt in May 2009 that was filmed for Nugent's television show, "Spirit of the Wild," on the Outdoor Channel. News of the plea deal broke a day after Nugent was questioned and cleared by the Secret Service over comments he made at an annual meeting of the National Rifle Association where he said he would be "dead or in jail" if President Barack Obama were re-elected.

You know, when lib biased networks hate you, it’s amazing the research and effort they will go through to trash you.

I remember them digging through Sarah Palin’s garbage, and all the while Obama’s pal Rezko was guilty of SO much, but they couldn’t even be bothered to waltz down to the courthouse and rake through THAT muck.

They are slime.

Nugent's attorney told the Anchorage Daily News on Friday that his client, who has previously hunted in the same area, was unaware of the law, which was introduced less than five years ago.
He told the newspaper he watched the video clip from Nugent's show and the arrow "touched" the bear and stuck in the ground.


Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?” said Dr. Ferris.  We want them broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against, then you'll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We're after power and we mean it.

You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you'd better get wise to it.  There's no way to rule innocent men.  The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals.  Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them.  One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.  Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens?  What's there in that for anyone?

So this is why he thought he’d be dead or in jail?

First they came for Gibson Guitar,
and I didn’t speak out because I owned a Fender.

Then they came for Ted Nugent,
and I didn’t speak out because I was a KISS fan,

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

You should post your comments with the original CNN article. Of course you'll be ridiculed, but they'll know the truth.

First they came for Gibson Guitar,

Then they came for Ted Nugent,

And they came after both of them with some dumbass BS called the "Lacey Act of 1900". It sounds to me like it's time to get rid of the "Lacey Act of 1900". Obviously, Lacey has outlived his usefulness.

Would be interested in a timeline for these charges.

The Lacy act was passed to stop the illegal trading selling of wild life.

More recently it as been used/ruled that any game taken in violation of state law and moved across state lines is covered because it is in commerce.

Just more widening of the so called commerce act.

“First they came for Gibson Guitar,”

“Then they came for Ted Nugent,”

Then thy came for the Catholic Church,

Then they came for the TEA party...

See my tagline.

You never want to pi$$ off a guy that has his ammo delivered on a pallet. Seriously, from his book “Ted, White & Blue. The Nugent Manifesto”.

So the left says “The Tea Party is dead”,IRRELEVANT, and AstroTurf.....Then they pick a fight with the one guy that can rally the tea party base with one press conference?

IF I was uncle Ted...I would wait this out...then come OCT take the flag climb the hill and rally the base with a commanding “Patriots, mount up” followed by “Autobots, roll out to the ballot box”...LOL

The way the article reads it seems like they filed the charges in 2009.

The Lacey Act violation seems a stretch to me, but I also have a hard time believing that no one knew the state law.

I watched the Beck interview with Nugent. Nugent said the judge in the case didn’t know of this law. I believe Nugent. And I am not a big fan of his music when he was younger.

The 0bots are after even Nugent’s friends...to get to him.

The Nuge should have used the Uncle Jimbo tactic of shouting at the top of his lungs, “IT’S COMIN’ RIGHT FOR US!!!”

(That’s what I’d have done)
