Eric Church is a Country Music Star who headlined at the Vegas massacre where 50 people were gunned down. Church had an interview with Rolling Stone where he blamed the Nation Rifle Association for the massacre.
Eric Church claimed the massacre was preventable if lobbyists like the NRA didn’t prevent gun control measures.
“There are some things we can’t stop,” Church said. “Like the disgruntled kid who takes his dad’s shotgun and walks into a high school. But we could have stopped the guy in Vegas.
“I blame the lobbyists. And the biggest in the gun world is the NRA.”
Eric Church shows his ignorance with his response to how it is the NRA’s fault,
“I don’t care who you are — you shouldn’t have that kind of power over elected officials,” Church said. “To me it’s cut-and-dried: The gun-show [loophole] would not exist if it weren’t for the NRA, so at this point in time, if I was an NRA member, I would think I had more of a problem than the solution. I would question myself real hard about what I wanted to be in the next three, four, five years.”
Eric Church claims he is a gun supporter but is outraged from a YouTube video.
“As a gun guy, the number of rounds [the shooter] fired was un f***ing believable to me,” Church told Rolling Stone. “I saw a video on YouTube from the police officer’s vest cam, and it sounded like an army was up there. I don’t think our forefathers ever thought the right to bear arms was that.”
Eric Church showed his lack of knowledge on guns with his ignorant statements. Eric Church can officially be considered a former Country music star, because majority of Country music fans are true gun supporters and do not agree with this rhetoric.
