Celebrities who don’t understand the meaning of political debates should stop alienating their audiences and keep to themselves.
While the majority of country singers practice this, two of the biggest country stars have decided to throw caution to the wind when it comes to the gun control debate. Faith Hill and Tim McGraw announced in an interview with Billboard: “They both support gun control.”
The artists, who have made a living entertaining typically conservative audiences, walk a fine line here. But they feel that the gun control debate is “not about the Second Amendment.” According to McGraw, “Look, I’m a bird hunter — I love to wing-shoot. However, there is some common sense that’s necessary when it comes to gun control. They want to make it about the Second Amendment every time it’s brought up. It’s not about the Second Amendment.”
But gun control is about the Second Amendment — “the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Gun control is an infringement, and ineffective to boot.
