Rosa Parks, gunslinger
Rosa Parks takes her famous bus ride after telling bus driver she's locked and loaded.
Ted Nugent has said some brain-dead stuff in his time. But in an interview about possible new firearms restrictions with wacko birther conspiracy website World News Daily, the board member of the National Rifle Association managed to trump everything he's previously mouthed, as highlighted here by Media Matters:
"But there will come a time when the gun owners of America, the law-abiding gun owners of America, will be the Rosa Parks, and we will sit down on the front seat of the bus, case closed."

Next, I suppose, Nugent will be touting Martin Luther King, Jr.'s most famous speech given a half-century ago this August. How did that go again? Oh yeah:

"I have a dream that all our children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their arsenals."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
