"Of, Todd and Don. On NewsRadio KLBJ posted on my Facebook page that Todd Jeffries paint Facebook page yesterday This Eric church interview and it's really got a lot of folks won't angry with Eric church And basically Eric church she was one of the headlining acts at the route ninety one festival in Las Vegas. At the raise to blame for that mass shooting that occurred in October of two thousand seventeen, when a crazed gunman opened. Fire on the crowd of festival goers while churches fellow country star Jason aldean was. Performing, fifty nine people killed many others were hurt the deadliest. Mass shooting in modern US history well church who said he considers himself a second amendment guy he. Blamed, the NRA and gun lobbyists for being. A roadblock, to gun safety in this new interview now there are some things we can't stop he says church told, Rolling Stone like the disgruntled kid who takes his dad's shotgun? At walks, into a high school but? We could. Have stopped the guy in Vegas how how Mr. church? How can we have stopped I don't how. Could they enter the NRA make him do the I'd, say he doesn't sound stable to me this is he's about to really alienate. Is hold on goes, on to blame lobbyists and the biggest in the world in the gun Is the NRA now the desperate, man singer said the NRA. Has been a bit of a roadblock when it comes to making some changes he. Says, I don't care who you are you shouldn't have that. Kind of power over elected officials meaning the NRA and to me it's cut and dry the gun. Show, loophole would not exist if it weren't. For the, NRA so at this point in time if the NRA if I was in RA member I would think, that I had more of a problem than a solution he? Goes on, to say I would question? Myself real. Hard about what I wanted to be in the next? Three to five years he performed two nights. Before that shooting and despite not being present at the, time of the deadly events the experienced it change his views on gun fan Eric church you like him I don't know him personally I can't, name any of his songs but from, what I heard this morning he, sounds like a decent country? So, he says your master. Yeah he's a massive star he's got more. Here as a gun guy he says the number of rounds the shooter fired was. On effing believable to me I saw a video on YouTube from, the police officers vest Cam and it sounded like. An army was up there I don't think our forefathers ever thoughts the right to, bear arms was that he's he's really got. It wrong on this, one and he is really really gonna alienate a lot. Of his his core fan so it's gonna be a. Lot of fallout for him he's he's going to pay a little bit. Of a price for that I. Do agree with one thing one thing that in a, sense of what he said we lobbyists do have, too. Much power in Washington not I don't think, anybody would. Disagree with you Not as a, whole think everybody can. Agree with it that lobbyists have way too much power over lawmakers right and I think. We can agree that the NRA has. A strong influence over many lawmakers he, probably needs to clarify his statement, a little bit better than? He, needs no I think. That's what he's his quotes are exactly what. He meant the NRA is a problem the second amendment should be changed and more. And you should be restricted from having that kind of foul firepower, said well let's sit back and watch the fallout. Because he's going to experience some I can guarantee you there lot of his fans, take this stuff very seriously when it comes. To that I know, he says he's he's he's a second amendment guy that's. Great but he's still going to feel some pain from. That you're listening to the best of Todd and Don on NewsRadio KLBJ. Hey everybody tied Jeffries here along. With Don prior this is the best of the Todd, and Don show but stay with us we're live, coming. Up at five thirty."
