NRA board member Ted Nugent is still taunting Parkland survivors

Long-standing NRA board member and musician Ted Nugent has not resisted criticizing some Parkland school shooters despite the backlash he has received.

Nugent, 69, went after 17-year-old David Hogg during an appearance at the Curtis and Cosby show for New York's WABC Radio on Monday.

The weapons lawyer ranted against Hogg – a student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, where a 19-year-old armed with an AR-15 shot down 17 people during the interview in February. Nugent called Hogg and his high school colleagues, who have proven to be weapons security advocates since the tragedy, "not very educated," saying they "did not know any AR-1

5 from a pterodactyl," the Associated Press reported.

Nugent also said that Hogg was "so brainwashed" that, according to the AP, he is unlikely to be repaired.

The comments come just days after Nugent said the students are "muschi brained children" and have "no soul" on another conservative radio program and Nationally Syndicated Joe Pags Show .

Hogg was a constant specter of proponents of weapons. Fox News expert Laura Ingraham ridiculed him for not attending some of the colleges he applied to, which led several advertisers to abandon their show despite their subsequent apology.

At Lou Dobb's Fox News Business Show in March Talk host presenter Dom Giordano – a former elementary school teacher and grammar school teacher, according to his website – followed the students and demonstration March for Our Lives with a tactless choice of words.

"I also have to say, Lou, as an educator, there are a few of these children who are as rude as they are here, as if they were bulletproof, so to speak," he said.

"Let's find another noun there, shall we," Dobbs replied, giggling.

Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, said about this commentary Newsweek on text: "I continue to be shocked and outraged by a clearly coordinated attack on the Parkland students – Children and survivors of gun violence. "

Watts continued, "Experts supporting the NRA's deadly agenda are so desperate to protect the status quo of gun violence in this country that no ad hominem attack is too low."
