Ted Nugent says he ended every reference that he made in his recent remarks with “in November at the voting booth.”
But the Secret Service wanted to talk things over with Nugent, and he had a meeting with Secret Service agents before a concert Thursday night in Oklahoma. WLFI.com reports that as a result of that meeting, the case is now closed and Nugent's comments were not a legitimate threat.
"The issue has been resolved," agency spokesman Brian Leary said in a statement. "The Secret Service does not anticipate any further action."
The rock singer, gun-rights advocate, and Motor City Madman told the National Rifle Association that he would be “dead in jail” if President Barack Obama is re-elected in November. According to Reuters, Nugent made references to other Obama administration officials, saying, “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November."
"I'm sure it will be a fine gathering backstage,” Nugent said, regarding his Secret Service meeting.
