Just days after a student at the Houston-based Lone Star College went on a stabbing spree that left 14 people injured, Texas resident and Detroit-born rocker Ted Nugent is featured in a promotional contest for a group called “Knife Rights,” billed by the president of the National Rifle Association as the nation’s “second line of defense” against legislative proposals to restrict firearms access.
The contest features a Wilson Combat 10mm handgun, engraved with Nugent’s autograph and signature “spearchucker” logo, given away to a randomly selected grand prize winner. The gun will come with a 4-inch folding knife and tactical folder, also autographed by Nugent.
The Knife Rights website features quotes about the importance of knives by Nugent and other conservative figures, like R. Lee Ermey, NRA President Wayne LaPierre and MSNBC conservative pundit S.E. Cupp.
“I joined Knife Rights to support the great job they are doing; you should too!” Nugent said in Knife Rights’ promotional copy. “God Bless Knife Rights! I got mine, now you could win the only other one of these pistols ever! Support Knife Rights today!”
