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.



Hillary Clinton, the candidate who "will fight for average working people" fails to leave a tip at restaurant

It is always easy to say that someone who claims that they will fight for average working people, but assuming that they even know what will help those people, how do you measure whether they actually care?  Well, one simple way would be whether they actually tip waiters or waitresses.  Hillary Clinton is worth hundreds of millions of dollars.  She probably isn't even paying for her meals as I suspect her campaign is paying for them.  Granted the campaign will apparently only have $2.5 billion to work with this go round, but you would hope that either Hillary or her campaign could afford to leave a 15% tip or even the change that they got back on the meal.  From Bloomberg Politics:
"Her bill was $20 and some change, and they paid with $21 and left" without putting anything in a tip jar on the counter, Charles Wright, the manager at the Maumee, Ohio, Chipotle restaurant told Bloomberg. . . . . 
"We get a bunch of tips," said Wright,  who only realized that the customer had been the presidential candidate after news organizations began calling the restaurant and he had reviewed surveillance video. "If we're doing our job right, people tip."  
The question of whether Clinton had tipped the workers during the Chipotle stop was first asked by conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday.  . . .
 UPDATE:  For those who claim that people don't tip at this restaurant, please actually read the points in bold from the article.  The restaurant not only has a "tip jar," but they say that "If we're doing our job right, people tip."

Still, I am sure that some people won't tip, but don't you imagine that the people who feel most sympathetic to the workers would be the ones most likely to tip?
