The massacres in Las Vegas and Sutherland Springs, Texas showed how far a person with severe mental illness can go to carry out hateful actions against innocent people. What these events also showed, however, is how resilient people are in the face of such evil.
Instead of praising the gun owner who tracked down and stopped killer Devin Kelley in the Democrats have been using the tragedy as a cynical pretense to try and enact their pet gun restriction agenda. Unfortunately, they are getting support from this from major country stars.
In a recent interview with Billboard magazine, hitmakers Tim McGraw and his wife Faith Hill both declared that they support gun control laws. Said Tim, “Look, I’m a bird hunter — I love to wing-shoot. However, there is some common sense that’s necessary when it comes to gun control. They want to make it about the Second Amendment every time it’s brought up. It’s not about the Second Amendment.”
He went on, “Military weapons should not be in the hands of civilians. It’s everyone’s responsibility, including the government and the National Rifle Association, to tell the truth. We all want a safe country.”
Hill echoed her husband, saying, “In reference to the tragedy in Las Vegas, we knew a lot of people there. The doctors that [treated] the wounded, they saw wounds like you’d see in war. That’s not right. Military weapons should not be in the hands of civilians. It’s everyone’s responsibility, including the government and the National Rifle Association, to tell the truth. We all want a safe country.” Shot back one internet commentator, “Tim needs to keep his opinions to himself he nor Faith have the right to tell anyone how to provide safety for themselves all the while walking around with armed security guards.” Do you think these two entertainers have gone soft? Thankfully, there are others in the entertainment industry who haven’t, like Clint Eastwood:
