'Duck Dynasty' Clan Launches Gun Line, Proves They Understand Their Fan Base

Excellent news for "Duck Dynasty" fans: now you can show your support for the beleaguered duck call clan by annihilating all sorts of living things with your very own "Duck Dynasty" shotgun collection.

Mossberg, one of the top gun manufacturers in the country, has revealed the new line of guns, which comes right off the heels of the clan's reinstatement to television after patriarch Phil Robertson's racist and anti-gay comments in an interview with GQ. Besides the different kinds of shotguns, Aaron Smith of CNN Money points out that a couple of the guns, an assault rifle and a machine pistol, aren't really useful for duck hunting (unless, of course, you're version of hunting includes turning your nearest pond red with mallard viscera).

The commercials put out by Mossberg are a perfect display of good ol' American beauty. You see the clan skulking through the Louisiana swamps while Robertson waxes poetic about the rights befitted to all Americans. At the end of the video, Robertson proudly proclaims, "Do you know what makes me happy, ladies and gentlemen? To blow a mallard drake's head smooth off." The commercial ends with a duck call that is reminiscent of maniacal laughter.

Do you hear that? That's the sound of Lady Liberty shedding tears of joy on the shoulder of Uncle Sam.

All joking aside, these guns are going to be a huge success for Mossberg and the Robertsons, much more so than that bizarre line of "Duck Dynasty" coolant.

All of the guns in the new line are in various forms of camouflage colors, and according to CNN Money, every purchase of a "Duck Dynasty" gun comes with your very own American Flag bandanna. Beautiful.
