Wayne LaPierre, the tough executive vice-president of the National Rifle Association, has been named to TIME magazine annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

LaPierre was profiled in the publication by rocker Ted Nugent, himself a proponent of gun rights.

Not surprisingly, Nugent praises LaPierre, calling him “an American warrior” who wages constant battle against the enemies of the Second Amendment.

“In the embarrassing culture war of politically correct denial that runs amok today, there is an American warrior, a common man who represents common sense and self-evident truth, and he is Wayne LaPierre,” Nugent wrote.

“On behalf of the millions of American families who still believe in God-given, constitutionally guaranteed individual rights, Wayne stands firm against the insidious tsunami of dangerous anti-constitutional furor that would further infringe on our sacred Second Amendment.”

Nugent ends his piece by comparing LaPierre to the men who fought for our country’s freedom during the Revolutionary War.

“Wayne is a sledgehammer for truth, logic and freedom. He is cut from the same cloth as our forefathers who stood on Concord bridge and risked all to give birth to a truly free, independent America. Wayne’s voice is the modern shot heard round the world,” Nugent concludes.

Other conservatives on the list this year include New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Rand Paul.
