He should call the Dixie Chicks and see if they need a new lead singer. Never ceases to amaze me that these entertainers think biting the hand that feeds you will work out!

He can sing and play guitar, but why does that make his opinion on guns or the NRA even slightly valid? I wish entertainers would realize we just want entertained. We don't want their opinions on guns, politics, trucks, whatever. It is to the point you can't watch or listen to anything without some idiot saying or doing something stupid and ruining it.

No. We don't want to hear the opinions that differ from ours. We love Blake Shelton for promoting hunting. We love Ted Nugent promoting guns and killing anything that roams. We don't like those with a platform using it for something that we don't agree with. When I say "we", I mean "we". I don't like it either. However, if I had a platform to share my opinions you can be **** sure that not everyone would like it. I support the NRA and the 2nd Amendment, but Church has the right to express his stupid opinions and even to wear those supergay sunglasses he sports.

“There’re are some things you CANT stop” yea, like folks shooting up a music festival in Vegas...

I like how he wants to try to divide the circumstances of the two shooting scenarios and say one would be harder to prevent. To me, it would be easier to stop the kid from shooting in the school with daddy’s shotgun. KEEP THE **** GUN LOCKED AWAY AND LOVE YOUR KID!!

I think only dealers/FFLS are required to do background checks, which makes what Eric Church said all the more ridiculous because it wouldn’t have done anything to stop this.

Not every table at a gun show is a ffl dealer. Some tables are random individuals who sell guns and private and donít have to run your info. I can think of a guy at the Pasadena show who wears a fanny pack who is like that.

Country music is to blame for the Vegas shooting. Had there not been a country music festival the shooting wouldn’t have happened. Ban country music festivals.

My apologies.

I guess I still listen to the old stuff.

It is interesting that he makes this move knowing it will alienate a huge part of his base. Perhaps his manager thinks that even bad publicity is good publicity. Guys like me now know who he is and yesterday I had no clue. I'm still not going to search for his latest "hit" but his name is certainly out there today.

I believe in everyone’s right to freedom of speech & decisions within the limits of the law.

My decisions:
1. Just bought my first RTIC 45 cooler & tumbler (great products btw)...no more YETI for me after their situation with the NRA
2. And now will never buy anything from Eric Church although I believe in his freedom of speech

Let our purchasing power talk...

His opinion is his opinion. I don't like his music, but it won't hurt his sales. Nashville reaches more urban people than it does rural.

He says "as a gun guy the amount of rounds fired was unbelievable."

I've seen that same thing said right here on this very website. Heck I've seen "strong Contsitutionalist" on this website call for more laws etc. after shootings.

Protesting someone who makes crappy music targeting an audience that likely largely agrees with him is a pointless cause. If you really want to protect your right to bear arms, start looking internally.

Yeah but that is not unique to gun shows. I can go meet someone in the Walmart parking lot and buy a gun just them same. They start with terms like "gunshow loophole" to get people on board. Then it's "well ya know you can do the same outside of gunshows, and since you are already on board with the logic we may as well ban private sales all together".
