Country Music Star Tim McGraw pushes for more gun control

Tim McGraw says that he is headlining a concert for Sandy Hook Promise, not because he supports gun control, but because he supports "education and safety" regarding guns.  No one disagrees with  "education and safety," but the question involves the gun control regulations being pushed by this organization.  If McGraw is raising money for the group, he is helping achieve the gun control regulations that Sandy Hook Promise is lobbying for.  Nicole Hockley's video here talks about her lobbying for "common sense" gun control legislation.
"Let me be clear regarding the concert for Sandy Hook given much of the erroneous reporting thus far," McGraw told FOX411 in a statement. "As a gun owner, I support gun ownership. I also believe that with gun ownership comes the responsibility of education and safety – most certainly when it relates to what we value most, our children. I can’t imagine anyone who disagrees with that."
The problem is that her push to prevent access to what she calls "high powered weapons," like an AR-15, and her desire to lock up guns can lead to more deaths.  Guns that fire .223 caliber bullets are not "high powered weapons."  If she really wants to ban all rifles that fire that size bullet or larger, she would ban the vast majority of hunting rifles.  Mandating gunlocks emboldens criminals to attack people in their homes and makes it more difficult for people to protect themselves.  As criminals are more successful in committing their crimes, you actually see an increase in the number of deaths.

If he was serious about education and safety, he would support the NRA last week in Nashville.

The NRA is the leading firearms education provider in the world.

Mr McGraw wants to cozy up to his west coast liberal friends.

He ain't country!
