Captured nut for liftgate pawn broken help

Ok so i know an easy fix would be a welder.. I don't have one or access to one and I looked into a rivet nut.. the gun for that seems to be like 200 bucks.. Anyone have a suggestion? anyone else have this problem? how did you fix it?

Rivet nuts can be set without the special setting tool.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
