Pro-Firearms Rocker Nugent: No Guns at My Show

Rock 'n' roll wild man and pro-guns advocate Ted Nugent reportedly banned fans from bringing guns to his concert in Virginia on Tuesday night.

WSLS, an NBC affiliate, says Nugent's management made the call to prohibit weapons inside the Berglund Performing Arts Theater in Roanoke, where Nugent performed hits including "Cat Scratch Fever" and "Wango Tango."

The city, which owns the arena, cannot bar guns from being carried inside unless a performer requests it. Shortly before the performance, an agreement between Nugent and his promoter not to allow open carry was delivered to the arena's managers.

"It happened about five minutes before we opened doors. We had a security meeting before we opened doors and the subject came up and we said, 'Yes, people will be bringing firearms,'" Berglund General Manager Robyn Schon told WSLS-TV.

According to Schon, Nugent's team said, "Uh, no, our agreement says no.'"

According to the Roanoke Times, of the 1,034 fans who attended, only three were packing firearms that they returned to their vehicles at the headliner's request.

Nugent, a conservative who is a board member of the National Rifle Association and outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump, is an advocacy of hunting and gun ownership rights.

Introducing his 1974 hit, "Great White Buffalo," Nugent told the crowd, according to the Times: "Thank God almighty that the Great White Buffalo is in the White House!"
