Ted Nugent won’t be reappearing on the Discovery Channel anytime soon, according to The Raw Story. In addition to canceling its American Guns reality show, a Discovery spokesperson told the website that the right-wing rocker wouldn’t be back on the channel.

Although Discovery announced the cancellation in the wake of last week’s shooting massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, the channel didn’t link the two in a statement. “American Guns concluded earlier this year,” the network said. “Discovery Channel chose not to renew the series and has no plans to air repeats of the show.”

Nugent this fall had hosted Ted Nugent’s Gun Country on the channel, which he said was the first installment of a planned series. Discovery said the episode, which fared poorly in the ratings, was always intended to be a one-hour special.

The guitarist, an outspoken advocate of gun rights, went on a Twitter diatribe after President Obama was re-elected last month. He also drew scrutiny from the Secret Service earlier this year after comments he made about Democrats at a National Rifle Association convention, where he said, “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November.”
