Louisiana native Tim McGraw and his wife Faith Hill didn't perform at the event, but they were asked about it in an interview with Billboard less than two weeks later. Both said they want to see changes to gun laws.
"... Military weapons should not be in the hands of civilians," Hill said. "It's everyone's responsibility, including the government and the National Rifle Association, to tell the truth. We all want a safe country."
" ... There is some common sense that's necessary when it comes to gun control," McGraw said. "(Gun rights advocates) want to make it about the Second Amendment every time it's brought up. It's not about the Second Amendment."
|I'll give you common sense gun control.
Get rid of all gun laws that restrict the rights of law abiding citizens. That will leave laws against felons in possession and straw purchases
Then. Anytime someone uses a gun in the commission of a crime, sentence them to the maximum prison time. No plea bargains, parole or time off for good behavior.
Put the miscreants in prison for long periods and watch the crime and murder rate decline,
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill live in a bubble. They most likely have armed security that those of us in the real world can't afford.
