Well, that seems….what’s the word again?

Famous rocker Ted Nugent performed in Roanoke on Tuesday night despite protests in the weeks leading up to the show. Nugent is a gun rights supporter and encourages open carry, but his fans were told at the last minute that they were not allowed to bring their guns inside the Berglund Performing Arts Theater.
It was Ted Nugent’s management that made the decision to not allow guns into the show. The Berglund Center said because it is city-owned, it can’t keep guns out unless the performers are the ones who request it, and that it was actually in Nugent’s contract all along, but was in a sub-contract between Nugent and his promoter that wasn’t shared with Berglund Center management until the last minute.
“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 Center General Manager Robyn Schon said. And Nugent’s people said, “Uh, no, our agreement says no.'”
A long line had gathered outside the doors waiting to get in when security came out and made the announcement that there had been a change in plans. Guns would not be allowed in, pat downs would be performed, and anyone with a gun would be asked to take it to their car.
“Given the things that have happened in nightclubs like the Pulse and what happened in Manchester, (Nugent’s) security people are taking extra precautions,” Schon said. “They are not novices; they are very seasoned people.”
So wait, Mr. “The Only Thing That Stops a Bad Guy with a Gun, is a Good Guy with a Gun,” does not want any good guys with guns in his rock show?
But didn’t he say that the reason there are so many shootings in public places is that liberals keep demanding all of these gun free zones?
So I guess that guns are totally cool and should be allowed in all public places unless those public places have Ted “I’m a Snowflake” Nugent in attendance.
Is that the idea?
And no I did not forget that the RNC convention in 2016 also refused to allow guns, as did a recent NRA rally.
Is anybody else getting the idea that these people are completely full of shit?
Or is that just me?
