Outspoken musician and gun right supporter Ted Nugent will be Rep. Steve Stockman’s guest Tuesday night at President Obama’s State of the Union address.

Nugent is well known for his defense of the Second Amendment and for his criticism of Obama’s politics. Obama is expected to make gun control a central part of this address.

While appearing at a campaign stop for then-GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney last year, Nugent declared, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

The Secret Service later interviewed Nugent about his comments.

Many Democrats are bringing victims of gun shootings to the State of the Union address, and Obama has invited the parents of a teenager who was slain in Chicago just a week after performing at the president’s inauguration.
