    I know it is pro-gun, but it just seems like it was picked or edited to be the article that sounds childish and name calling. While I agree with what he says I also read it and see that anyone that didn't already support what he says seems likely to be put off by it thinking it appears more like a rant than a argument or discussion.

    No, I'm not annoyed by his tone at all. The anti-gun morons need simple, strong verbage like this to get the message. Regardless of the fact that Nugent is on the fringe, his points are so solid they're indisputable and the way they're presented don't deserve attention. They wouldn't have more impact if some highly-regarded professional conveyed them in diplomatic terms.

    Hmmm... let see:

    Their anit-gun piece is written by a former newspaper editor, and professor of communications and policy studies at a major university.

    Their pro gun piece is written by a guitarist who performed in a loin cloth.

    As Fox News would say... "Fair and balanced."

    hey, being blunt works some times, and if anyone can do it, Nugent can do it

    I'm not annoyed by Nugent. I AM annoyed by some of the people that are responding on the cnn page...for example, this is currently the 5th response on the page:

    If Joe really believed in our right to bear arms, he'd understand that it includes hand guns and so called "assault weapons"

    Oh, thats right...he says he's a hunter, so as long as he gets to hunt, thats all he cares about. Because the anti-gun people would never go after hunting guns :rolleyes:

    Indeed another news show did this a day or two ago. They had Paul Helmke, the president of the largest anti-gun organization in the US, for mayor, and yale law graduate on to represent the anti-gun side. For the pro-gun side they had on ted nugent, 60 year old rock artist. It hardly seems like they intend for there to be a fair debate.
