Country star John Rich defended the Second Amendment while calling out fellow music stars Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard over their gun control push.
On December 4, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Bentley and Hubbard had joined a gun control push launched by Tom’s apparel company. The campaign includes calls for universal background checks, even though we have had background checks since 1998 and nearly every mass public attacker acquires his guns via a background. The exceptions are those who steal their guns.
John Rich is now calling out both Bentley and Hubbard for suggesting gun control is a “solution” to criminals acting like criminals.
Fox News reported that Rich used hypothetical and personal situations he would use to explain the importance of protecting gun rights to Bentley and Hubbard:
The issue with gun control, you look at it and you go, ‘These maniacs, these vicious people are taking a weapon and shooting people with it.’ And then the flip side of that is, right now, I’m in New York City and back in Nashville is my wife and my two little kids. And if somebody breaks into my house, which rifle would you suggest I tell my wife to grab?
Rich made it clear that gun control does not stop criminals from being criminals, but it does make it harder for the law-abiding citizen to fight off criminals when they attack. He said, “Only the bad guys break the laws.” – READ MORE
