What’s duck hunting without a gun?
Duck Commander and Mossberg have teamed up to launch its own line of guns for 2014. The gun line will have 12 types of guns that will feature 9 shotguns, a semi-automatic rifle and a semi-automatic pistol, what the gun phobia people referred to as “military style” weapons. Let’s go out on a limb and say, these are going to fly off the shelves. Let me rephrase that … this is going to be beyond HUGE!!!
The family-owned business at the center of the hit TV show “Duck Dynasty” has launched its own line of guns.
Mossberg says the Duck Commander guns will come in a “waterfowl pattern” camouflage design, though not all of them are intended for duck hunting. They also bear the Duck Commander logo, of a duck in flight.
The pistol and one of the rifles have military-style designs with large capacity magazines holding at least 25 rounds. The rifle has some of the features of an assault rifle, but with a relatively low .22 caliber.
Mossberg’s Web site says its .22-caliber pistol is “perfect for small game, plinking, target shooting — or clearing cottonmouths out of your duck blind.”
Mossberg’s Web site says the firearms will all come with an American flag bandana “like the one worn by Willie,” a character on the show.
North Haven, CT – O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc, America’s oldest family-owned and operated firearms manufacturer, has entered into a long-term agreement with the Robertson family and the hugely-popular Duck Commander franchise. Best-known as the stars of the top-rated reality TV series, Duck Dynasty, the Robertson clan lead by family patriarch, Phil, has expanded their Louisiana-based call-making company into a national phenomenon and A&E Television Networks™ most-
watched series. Terms of the multi-year agreement will include focus on the family’s passion of waterfowl hunting, promotion of the shooting sports and family values as well as a series of Mossberg “Duck Commander” firearms. (read the rest HERE)
FEAR THE BEARD: A&E Caves, Phil Robertson Hiatus Over Patriarch Back on ‘Duck Dynasty’ … Phil Robertson 2 – GLAAD 0
HE’S BACK … AND WE ARE SO
Less than two weeks after Robertson was put on “indefinite hiatus” for his remarks than angered GLAAD, the ‘Duck Dynasty’ patriarch is back on D2 as A&E has caved due to a backlash like they have never seen. This represents another reversal of fortune as related to Phil Robertson as it was just last Sunday that Cracker Barrel learned the errors of their ways and had to put back Robertson’s merchandise on the shelves after they had a knee-jerk reaction the previous Friday and removed it. I am starting to sense a trend here. It is a victory for free speech, it is a victory for freedom of religion and a victory against the Gestapo PC police.
Oh what a lesson this is to the liberal media and the intolerant LEFT … Take notice how one stands up to a bully.
BOYCOTT AGAINST A&E VICTORY … MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!
An A&E statement to The Hollywood Reporter read:
As a global media content company, A+E Networks’ core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect. We believe it is a privilege for our brands to be invited into people’s homes, and we operate with a strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principles.
That is why we reacted so quickly and strongly to a recent interview with Phil Robertson. While Phil’s comments made in the interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the “coarse language” he used and the misinterpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would “never incite or encourage hate.” We at A+E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article and reiterate that they are not views we hold.
But Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man’s views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family … a family that America has come to love. As you might have seen in many episodes, they come together to reflect and pray for unity, tolerance and forgiveness. These are three values that we at A+E Networks also feel strongly about.
So after discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family. (Read the rest HERE)
Oh I cannot wait for the GLAAD meltdown. Careful, they may actually cause Global Warming it is going to be so intense.
A note to the tolerant LEFT and GLAAD who may not agree with another individuals personal and religious beliefs … turn the channel!!! One of my favorite tag lines for A&E’s decision reversal from Legal Insurrection … A&E Admits it Ducked Up – will bring back Duck Dynasty Star. Ha, yes they did!
UPDATE I: Oh so many Tweets at TWITCHY.
The length of an “indefinite” ban from filming for an outspoken star of the hit reality series Duck Dynasty has been revealed, and it is zero days.
The A&E Networks on Friday announced a decision to reinstate Phil Robertson, the patriarch of its runaway hit guns ‘n’ god series, just one week after suspending him for controversial remarks he made in a GQ interview.
Earlier this month, Robertson told GQ he thought “homosexual behavior” was sinful and led to bestiality. A&E promptly declared itself “extremely disappointed” with the viewpoint and said “the network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
Following a ratings-threatening backlash from hundreds of thousands of Duck Dynasty fans, A&E on Friday issued a groveling retraction of that stand.

CRACKER BARREL Reverses Decision to Pull Duck Dynasty Phil Robertson’s Merchandise After Getting Hammered by Calls, Tweets, Emails and Comments on Facebook … “We made a mistake, we listened to you, and we apologize.”
I love the smell of victory in the morning … it smells like Cracker Barrel
eating cooking crow, or is that Uncle Hershel’s breakfast?
WE THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKE AND CRACKER BARREL HAS REVERSED THEIR DECISION!!!
Cracker Barrel announced Sunday they have reversed a decision to remove select “Duck Dynasty” products of Phil Robertson’s from their restaurants after getting bombarded by DD’s loyal supporters. Don’t think you don’t have a voice America, because you do. In the end, Cracker Barrel knows damn well who butters their bread and it isn’t GLAAD. It was just Friday that Cracker Barrel had made the foolish, knee-jerk reaction to pull Phil Robertson’s merch. I guess they noticed all the negative comments on their Facebook page and a lack of folks ordering Uncle Hershel’s for breakfast.
KUDOS to all of you that expressed your opinion and told Cracker Barrel that they were hypocrites and you would voice your opinion with your wallets and purses. This PC crap will no longer be tolerated. It is about time the silent majority spoke up … let this only be the beginning.
As reported at Forbes, Oops, our bad … we made a mistake.
Cue a barrage of tweets, emails, and calls from Duck Dynasty fans to the powers that be at Cracker Barrel, not to mention threats of a boycott.
Now, a day later, the 625-outlet comfort food chain has capitulated and will resume selling Duck Dynasty products.
