Chatting with Australia’s Silver Tiger Media, the 63-year-old singer, who lives in Nashville, acknowledged (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “It’s truly humorous. That they had been merely talking about it on the data. Ninety p.c — it’s a moderately massive amount — nevertheless ninety p.c of Individuals are okay with stricter gun insurance coverage insurance policies. Not taking the weapons away — merely stricter insurance coverage insurance policies throughout the purchase of. So that you simply check out that and likewise you go, ‘Wait, ninety p.c. Okay, correctly, they should have the flexibility to take a seat down at a desk and cross the laws.’ Nevertheless for some objective, that ten p.c and these NRA companies, like these lobbyists, have totally paid off all these politicians in Washington. They often’re, like, the an identical guys are, like, ‘Our concepts and prayers are with the households.

“Instead of ‘pondering and praying,’ it is a CONCRETE ACTION you might take — you might contact your legislators and DEMAND that there be some inexpensive, commonsense gun laws changes. DEMAND IT AND KEEP DEMANDING IT.
“Lots of the American of us, along with numerous gun owners, want this. Why isn’t this happening? What variety of additional kids ought to die until WE THE PEOPLE get fed up ample to strain the federal authorities to do one factor?
“The time for ‘concepts and prayers’ is lengthy gone — it’s a slap throughout the face of those who proceed to die on account of crazy of us armed with LEGALLY obtained high-powered semiautomatic weapons, weapons which could be designed for JUST ONE THING — killing human beings.
“I grew up throughout the nation with weapons within the residence — these had been shotguns, used for looking. You don’t use an AR-15 for looking deer, you put it to use for looking MEN or (apparently) CHILDREN.
“Some of us don’t similar to the time interval ‘assault rifle.’ Okay, cool — why don’t we identify them ‘Youngster Killers’ then? Is that just a bit increased? Can we get just a bit KID KILLER administration happening? Is it nonetheless ‘too early’ to start talking about getting these KID KILLERS off the streets? Are the students who survived the massacre in Florida and who’re publicly begging us, the adults in command of points, for gun laws reform ‘politicizing’ the complete factor? Is it ‘too early’ for THEM to hold it up? Must we merely inform them to shut up on account of they’re children and don’t understand grownup points, stuff like why crazy of us can merely buy assault rifles after which SHOOT THEM DEAD throughout the classroom?
“NO MORE THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS — THEY AIN’T WORKING.”
