Should Ted Nugent Be Fired by the NRA?

Should Ted Nugent be Fired by the NRA? On-Line op-ed in the Pagosa Daily Post by Pat Wray
I’m a hunter, and I know that hunters need a spokesperson.  We need someone with a lifetime of experience who speaks with authority about preserving public lands and the wild animals living there that we love to hunt.  We need someone whose personal magnetism generates interest simply by speaking on the subject of hunting.
I just don’t want my spokesman to be Ted Nugent.

***********
It also bothers me that Nugent is on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association. The NRA, which protects our right to bear arms, also claims to represent hunters.  As such, their directors should be held to the highest standard of hunting behavior.  It will be interesting to see if the law-abiding, ultra-patriotic NRA will do the right thing and remove Nugent from their board.
Or will the NRA leadership continue to support a twice-convicted game-law violator who openly threatens the president of the United States?
What do you think? Is this guy representative of the hunting community? I would think so.
