Duck Dynasty Guns: The Family Says They Are ‘Ready To Move On’

January 04, 2014 07:33 AM by Suzy Kerr

Who’s bearded, bandana’ed, has a new gun line and ready to move on in 2014? Willie Robertson, that’s who. The Duck Dynasty star has remained fairly quiet since his dad Phil Robertson’s controversial comments in a GQ interview were released, save for the official statement he and his family gave immediately afterward. Now, the duck-loving (or hating, depending how you look at it) Louisianan is speaking out, and here’s the bottom line – he’s so over it, y’all.

Willie and his wife Korie chatted with Bill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck during a Fox New Year’s special, and of course the recent controversy surrounding the family came up. Phil Robertson’s homophobic and racially insensitive comments during an interview for this month’s edition of GQ resulted in a firestorm last month, with people sounding off both for and against the Robertson clan, and A&E almost immediately suspending the DD patriarch from the show. Now that Phil’s been reinstated, however, Willie and Co. say they’re ready to put the past in the past and move on.

“We’re just glad to be back to work,” he told Hemmer and Hasselbeck during the television program. “A&E and us are fine. We’re looking forward to getting back to making some funny shows. It’s a new year, so we’re ready to break in a new year and start all over again.”He also added, “We’re ready to get started. We got a new season coming up in a couple weeks, and we’re really excited about that. We got a couple episodes filmed … and we’re ready to move on. I think we all learned a lot, and we’re just ready to move on, and the family’s happy and ready to go.”

Korie Robertson echoed her husband’s feelings, telling the TV hosts, “I’m just glad the family is all together. The best thing about the show is we get to do it together as a family, and that fact that we get to continue to do that, we’re all happy, happy, happy.”

And rich, rich, rich.The Robertsons are A&E’s biggest draw, with Duck Dynasty bringing in millions of viewers each week and the family making some serious bank off the hit show – to the tune of $200,000 per episode. So yeah, now that their cash cow is once again secure, I don’t think Korie is exaggerating when she says they’re all happy, happy, happy.

What do you think about all this? Are you ready to move on with the Robertsons, or will you be fulfilling your duck call needs elsewhere? Tell us in the comments!

    Ok this is how I an probably a lot of ppl feel. Duck Dynasty is real, No, drugs, No nudity, No One Sleeping together, No one killing people, like 90% of other TV Shows. This show you can watch with kids…The other TV shows are mostly R rated.Which is a shame. There is enough of all this stuff going on in the world..What is wrong with people.Duck Dynasty Rocks!!!! So leave them Alone!!!!!!

    Yes, let’s give this hill billy inbred child molesting pedophile more money…let’s put guns in the hands of d**k dynasty followers so they can hurt innocent people..much the same way Charles Manson and his clan murdered innocents..amazing, he marries a 15 year old girl, insists others do the same and it’s ok with his “straight” viewers, but let a 20 year old man and a 15 year old boy fall in love and it’s called among other things “sick” “rape”..I know girls mature faster then boys, but I have a problem with the maturity level of any girl/female who would choose to be with one of those hick slobs..as far is dd being safe viewing, yea on camera, but off you have drunks, dope addicts, jealous fights..cheating and a score of other sins..oh I forgot there is no such thing as a “straight” sin..there’s that blasted double standard again..you people need to seriously get a life of your own..I love Vampire Diaries, but I guarantee you this, I wont be a vampires champion, not unless he or she goes after the d**k dynasty clan!!
