"Duck Dynasty" Family Launches New Gun Line

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2014-01_f87d63dfc7.jpgKarolina Wojtasik/A&E (NEW YORK) -- Things couldn’t get any better for the Duck Dynasty clan in 2014. Days after A&E reinstated Phil Robertson following a short suspension for making anti-gay comments, Duck Commander, the company Robertson started 40 years ago, has launched a new gun line. Mossberg, a gun maker headquartered in North Haven, Conn., has teamed with Duck Commander to release nine shotguns, two semiautomatic rifles and a semiautomatic pistol.

Mossberg also released a series of commercials last month that shows the Robertson family hunting and holding the new line of guns. “Let’s go kill some ducks, boys,” a voice says in one video. In another video titled “Happiness,” Robertson asks, “You know what makes me happy, ladies and gentlemen? To blow a mallard drake’s head smooth off.”

After calling homosexuality a sin and quoting from Scriptures in an interview with GQ magazine, Robertson, 67, was suspended from Duck Dynasty in mid-December. Last week, A&E released a statement, which read, “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.”
