Robertson family gun line launches, heading to stores in 2014
Just as it seemed the media hype surrounding the “Duck Dynasty” cast was dying down, the A&E reality family is back with a bang, as a new video announcing their new gun line began circulating online.
In a promo ad that reads like a movie trailer, Phil Robertson can be heard reciting the familiar lines of the Declaration of Independence.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, and they’ve been endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,” his voice declares. “And those are rights that no government can take from you.”
In the ad, produced by the gun company Mossberg & Sons, the Robertson men are seen in their go-to camo apparel, handling a gun that reads “Faith. Family. Ducks.”
“You know what makes me happy, ladies and gentleman? To blow a mallard drake's head smooth off,” he says at the end of the ad.
A rep for Mossberg & Sons told FOX411 the guns should be available in select stores soon.
"We have begun shipping semi-auto rifles and pistols and some of the shotguns. Cabela's and Academy Sports & Outdoors have already placed orders and guns should be arriving in-store any day."
She added that the company expects other retailers to pick up the line shortly.
"Also, Mossberg is sold through two-step distribution, so any licensed FFL (Federal Firearms License) dealer can purchase these firearms through a wholesaler."
The gun line promo comes on the heels of news that Phil Robertson will resume filming for the hit A&E show, after he was suspended for nine days following some controversial comments he made to GQ about homosexual sex and African-Americans.
The Mossberg rep told us the company is excited to work with the famous family of hunters.
"Mossberg is excited to partner with the Duck Commanders; the alignment of two family-owned and operated businesses to promote the traditions of waterfowl hunting and family values."
Reps for A&E declined to comment.
