Country star John Rich is challenging his anti-gun country stars to a debate over the Second Amendment. Many country singers have come out recently calling for stricter gun control laws.
According to Fox News:
NEW YORK – John Rich is challenging his fellow country music stars to a friendly debate over the Second Amendment.
Rich, one half of the country duo Big & Rich, has never been one to shy away from politics. And when the “Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy” singer heard his friends and fellow artists Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard were part of a new push for gun control, the proud Texan was really interested to hear their side.
“Successful artists, while they’re only one person, or a couple of people, whatever it is, they have millions of fans,” the 44-year-old told Fox News exclusively. “So when they speak, those millions of fans hear what they say.”
Rich said he knows Bentley and Hubbard personally and has worked with them previously. He stressed that he has nothing but respect for them — but he does want to engage them in a conversation over the Second Amendment.
Rich said that his questions to fellow performers would center around how they expect his wife to protect his family while he is away from home working.
