Ted Nugent is known for making controversial and even threatening statements, and now he’s comparing gun owners to the civil rights icon Rosa Parks.
In an interview with WorldNetDaily, Nugent said, “There will come a time when the gun owners of America, the law-abiding gun owners of America, will be the Rosa Parks and we will sit down on the front seat of the bus, case closed.”
Rosa Parks became known as the “first lady of civil rights” and “mother of the freedom movement” after she refused to move to the back of the bus in Montgomery, Al., in 1955—a nonviolent act of protest against segregation after centuries of oppression.
Nugent invoked Parks’ name in response to a question about gun confiscation plans allegedly being concocted by the White House gun violence task force. Only one elected official, a Democratic lawmaker in Iowa, has actually proposed such a plan, but that hasn’t stopped the right from suggesting the White House has plans to confiscate guns from law-abiding owners.
