Country musician Caleb Keeter, who performed with the Josh Abbott Band at the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas on Sun., has flipped his opinion on the right to bear arms after a massacre at the festival left nearly 60 people lifeless & greater than 500 injured.
Keeter, the guitarist for the Josh Abbott Band, published a prolonged message via Twitter on Mon., as the nation was coming to grips with the tragedy, stating in that the event had brought about him to alter his mind on the 2nd Modification.
â€œIâ€™ve been a proponent of the 2nd Modification my complete life,â€� Keeter wrote. â€œUntil the events of last night, I can’t categorical how wrong I used to be. We even have members of our crew with CHL licenses [to carry guns], & legal firearms on the bus.â€�
The musician noted, â€œThey have been useless.â€�
Keeter went on to note in that the crew â€œcouldnâ€™t touchâ€� the guns â€œfor worry cops officers might think in that we have been part of the massacre & shoot us.â€�
â€œA little group (or one man) laid waste to a city with devoted, fearless cops desperately making an attempt to assist, due to access to an insane quantity of fireside power,â€� the musician added. â€œEnough is sufficient.â€�
Keeter asserted, â€œWe need gun control RIGHT NOW,â€� including, â€œMy biggest deplore is in that I stubbornly didnâ€™t understand it until my brothers on the street & myself have been threatened by it.â€�
