Eyebrows were raised on Monday (February 11) when noted right-wing rocker Ted Nugent tweeted that he would be attending the State Of The Union address.

Nugent, a vocal gun-rights advocate, was invited by Texas Republican Representative Steve Stockman. After the event, Nugent tweeted that “the prez is a master scam artist.”

Following the State Of The Union, Nugent told CBS News that President Barack Obama’s speech was “predictable, flowery [and] feel-good. Whatever he says, he just doesn’t do it, or he does just the opposite.” Getting to specifics, he said, “None of his gun-control proposals has ever reduced crime, has ever halted or deterred criminal behavior, and has never saved an innocent life.”

“When someone threatens innocent lives, and acts absolutely dangerously crazy… get those people off the streets.” Echoing the argument of the NRA, he said, “We need to take care of the mentally ill, and keep them away from the public.”
