Country Star Tim McGraw.. “Gun Prohibitionist”
Country music superstar Tim McGraw is about to shoot himself in the foot with a potentially career ending move to play a concert benefiting gun prohibitionist group Sandy Hook Promise. This decision is not going to be received well by McGraw’s COUNTRY MUSIC fan base, which overwhelmingly supports gun rights.
Tim McGraw has announced that on Friday, July 17, at XFINITY Theatre in Hartford, he will hold a concert to benefit Sandy Hook Promise. One-hundred percent of the net proceeds of this event will support Sandy Hook Promise, founded in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, with a mission of protecting children from gun violence.
TICKETS for “Tim McGraw: A Concert for Sandy Hook Promise” go on public sale Friday, April 17, at 10 am, through www.LiveNation.com and www.ticketmaster.com.
Featured performers will include current tourmates Billy Currington and Chase Bryant, along with special guests to be announced later.
TICKETS, according to the Live Nation site, range from $31.35 to $71.25 ($43-$88.20 with fees).
“Out of this tragedy a group was formed that made a promise to honor the lives lost and turn it into a moment of transformation,” said Mr McGraw. “Sandy Hook Promise teaches that we can do something to protect our children from gun violence. I want to be a part of that promise — as a father and as a friend.”
Sandy Hook Promise claims to “promote mental wellness, combat social isolation, and prevent gun violence,” but by far their strongest emphasis is on turning the public against the Second Amendment rights of Americans by subtly equating the support of gun rights with the murder of children, as their social media ACCOUNTS clearly show.
A major push right now for the group is forcing the adoption of so-called “universal BACKGROUND CHECKS,” which would prevent the private transfer or sale of firearms between friends and family members without a federal background check. The goal of such a system is to serve as de facto gun registry, and which serves no legitimate crime prevention purpose.
Mark another country music star off of my list of those I will financially support..
In fact.. I think I will pull out his cd’s I’ve already purchased and destroy them.
