The discovery channel is debunking rumors this week that there will be future episodes of Ted Nugents ‘Gun Country.’ The network said that despite what Nugent has been telling the press, ‘Gun Country’ was a one-time event and there will be no new episodes.
The special, which featured Ted Nugent and his artillery of guns aired back in October and since then Nugent has been saying: “They want to do it as a regular feature. We expect that there will be at least a dozen shows a year.”
While Nugent defends his gun use saying, “Our new show…simply celebrates and promotes the self-evident truth that 99.9% of American gun-owning families use our guns on a regular basis for all the reasons. The same 99.9% of Americans with guns will never use our guns in a crime or for any negative misuse whatsoever,” many networks are rethinking their programming in light of the recent massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.
