Country music superstar Eric Church ripped the NRA in a fake news rant about the Las Vegas massacre in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
Church admitted the rant would result in backlash from fans, then said, “I don’t care.”
Rolling Stone reported that Church played at the Route 91 Harvest festival two nights before shots rang out during Jason Aldean’s October 1, 2017, performance. Ultimately, 58 people were killed and hundreds more injured by a man who had complied with every gun control law applicable in acquiring his firearms, including background checks.
The article goes on to state the following:
Yet Church’s response to the shooting was to tear into the NRA while calling for more gun control.
The Grammy-nominated singer began by focusing on how many guns and how much ammunition Americans should be allowed to own:
I’m a Second Amendment guy. That’s in the Constitution, it’s people’s right, and I don’t believe it’s negotiable. But nobody should have that many guns and that much ammunition and we don’t know about it. Nobody should have 21 AKs and 10,000 rounds of ammunition and we don’t know who they are. Something’s gotta be done so that a person can’t have an armory and pin down a Las Vegas SWAT team for six minutes. That’s f*cked up.
Church continued, “There are some things we can’t stop, 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.”
When asked why we failed to stop the Vegas shooter, Church replied, “I blame the lobbyists. And the biggest in the gun world is the NRA.”
Church emphasized he is not a member of the NRA, then said:
I’m a Second Amendment guy, but I feel like they’ve been a bit of a roadblock. I don’t care who you are – you shouldn’t have that kind of power over elected officials. 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.
