Because of course he does. In exchange for agreeing to close the gun show loophole (he acknowledges it exists, which is something) he thinks the poor should be disenfranchised:
National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent proposed a compromise that would trade closing the gun show loophole for closing what he deemed “the federal voting loophole,” which allows individuals who do not pay federal income tax to vote.
Implementing this plan would involve taking away the vote from a large number of Americans who work but do not owe federal income taxes as well as retirees and some individuals who cannot work because of illness or disability.
In a December 4 column for conspiracy website WND, Nugent — calling himself a “prospective presidential candidate in 2016″ — framed his proposal as “a Great Compromise” and suggested that he would be willing to risk provoking the ire of gun activists (including his fellow NRA board members) in order to ensure its enactment.
And he’s running for president, which should make 2015 and 2016 — um — entertaining?
