(Reuters) - Musician and gun-rights advocate Ted Nugent said on Thursday he had a positive meeting with U.S. Secret Service agents investigating his recent criticism of President Barack Obama, and the agency confirmed the issue had been resolved.
Nugent, who told NRA supporters in St. Louis last week that he would be "dead or in jail" next year if Obama was reelected, said in a statement that he had "met with two fine, professional Secret Service agents" in Oklahoma.

Sounds like it. If it were up to me the Secrete service would be nothing more than body guards.
Being pro-active security crosses the line where our Constitutional rights are concerned.
How is it that we can expect to live in a free country when the men who choose to lead that country are unwilling to take responsibly for the inherit risks of the position they choose to run for, and instead insist that we give up OUR rights so that his security can be obsessively protective.
This is not the pope we are protecting, this is the President of theses united States charged with upholding the Constitution for the protection of All Americans not disregarding it for just himself.
This is what tyrants like Hugo Chavez does, its NOT acceptable for American presidents. Honest Presidents of free Constitutional republics assume the risks inherit in their job rather than force their citizens to give up Constitutionally reserved rights. Honest Presidents DO their jobs of upholding the Constitution for the people!
Thank goodness those threads have been scrubbed from FR ........................... FRegards
Yep, we know all about the Secret Service and FBI.
