Country singer Eric Church said he blames the National Rifle Association (NRA) for holding up gun control legislation after a gunman killed dozens of people at a Las Vegas country music festival last year.

Church told Rolling Stone for a story this week that he blames gun lobbyists for why nothing more has been done to prevent mass shootings.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I blame the lobbyists. And the biggest in the gun world is the NRA,” he said.

The singer called for a ban on bump stocks, improved background checks and closing the so-called “gun show loophole” that allows for guns to be purchased from private sellers without a background check.

The NRA has been a “roadblock,” Church said.

“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.”

Church said his views on ammunition and gun availability changed after a gunman opened fire from a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, killing 58 people and injuring more than 800 more at the Route 91 Harvest music festival.

“I’m a Second Amendment guy,” Church said. “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,” he continued. “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—ed up.”

  1. I am NOT even going to read this full article. Blaming the NRA seems to be the liberals’ faux pas! What part of “we already have enough gun laws on the books now!”…and just what makes these idiots think that any kind of law, regardless on what it is, will NOT stop these shooters! They are criminals and criminals will always be able to get their hands on weapons…ALWAYS!! You actually think they go by the law? Disarming citizens, whether it’s banning this and banning that is just the start of removing ALL firearms from the hands of normal everyday citizens. And then what? If you know your history, just go back and look what Hitler did…that is exactly what happened and why he was able to rampage through Europe. Stop all this insanity. The NRA has nothing to do with any of these mass shootings…not one. So buck up, think straight, use your common sense and realize that no law will prevent these shootings…The best defense is a good offense. The shooters that have been stopped were done so by armed people, and that’s a fact.

    • Same here Patty, I just saw who the person was that said the statement and stopped reading. I agree with everything you said.

  2. Congratulations Eric Church for proving that it doesn’t take more than one brain cell to sing country music!!! The shooting in Vegas was accomplished by the ANTIFA Group and your friendly Democratic Party. They figure they get enough country folk behind it they may be able to disarm people but Many who were NOT stupid saw through it. How many would have been returning fire on the sniper and how many lives could have been saved if it was NOT A GUN FREE ZONE? Your ignorance is showing as is your (blind Following) of the Left who are proudly claiming that they want to impliment Socialism. You might want to look up Utube videos with crowder trying to exploit the (Gun show loophole) so many of you blithering idiots are spreading around. They Don’t exist. It is a lie made up by people like yourself who know nothing about guns buying guns.
    Stick to singing and shut your punk mouth about the 2nd Amendment and buying guns. It is better to be silent and thought a Fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt !!!

  3. If people can complain about the NRA, they should also be complaining about the FDA, Pharma, Big Food, Big Agri… They all have a hold on Congress. I think it should be illegal for any Congressional rep (Senate included) to take money from any big company.

  4. Since when is Eric Church a country music star? And who gives a rat’s rump what he thinks? Stick to singing, dumbass!

  5. Who the hell is Ric Church? Why should anyone give a rip what he thinks. Some people will do anything for notarity.
