This A&E “Duck Dynasty” family is a republican, gun-totin’ NRA lifetime member’s wet dream! They eschew gay folks, want to send Black people back to the back of the bus AND are launching a line of camo print guns!
I tell you, I enjoy the antics of Phil and Si, and Phil’s sons Jase, Willie, and Jep just like every other American, but their personal politics are starting to get in the way of my mindless TV enjoyment. You see, I have this thing called a conscious that tells me if a person is an -ist of any kind (sexist, racist, homophobic (or a -bic,)) not to support them. I thought A&E felt the same way, well they did, at least until money called, but I digress!
The Robertson family-owned Duck Commander teamed up with gun manufacturer Mossberg to produce 12 guns in total: nine shotguns, two semiautomatic rifles and two semiautomatic pistols. They’ve already been shipped to retailers and run anywhere from $400 to $1000. CEO Iver Mossberg said:
“Mossberg is extremely proud to partner with Duck Commander to further promote hunting, shooting sports and family values…”
Can’t knock their hustle goshdarnit! Let me grab my fatigues and camo gun! Duck hunting anyone?
