“Country Singer” demands extensive gun control

Breitbart: Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard Doubles Down: Ban Private Gun Sales at Gun Shows, Flea Markets.

Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard doubled down Wednesday on his push to criminalize private gun sales, particularly those occurring at gun shows and flea markets.

Hubbard says in an Instagram video that background checks are not legally required in private gun sales, like those that occur between family members or at gun shows or flea markets.

Not only does Hubbard’s gun control push here sound identical to the Democrats’ talking points from the last 30 years, it is exactly what the Democrats are pushing now.

On December 5, 2018, Breitbart News reported that incoming House Democrats plan to push a universal background checks bill that will criminalize private gun sales. As with Hubbard’s gun control push, the move will not stop a single mass shooting; it will, however, criminalize a mother who gives her college-age daughter a revolver for self-defense without first getting the federal government’s permission.

Hubbard did not point to a single 21st century mass shooting that was carried out with a privately purchased gun, and that is because nearly every one of the shooters got their guns at retail via a background check. The exceptions are the shooters who stole their guns.
Democrats have been using gun shows as an excuse to try to criminalize private gun sales since the 1990s, and Hubbard is parroting their flawed gun control mantra by:

  • Admitting that background checks are already the law of the land, then presenting gun shows as some kind of loophole.
  • Trying to make his gun control push sound altruistic by targeting flea markets as well as gun shows.
  • Presenting a false dichotomy between retail sellers and “personal sellers” to make it sound like a father who sells a gun to his son is skirting the law.  MORE

  1. With his background of being less than a minor celebrity band member, I suppose we are supposed to pay attention?

    Uhhh, no.

    Phuck off. This is an adult conversation and you ain’t qualified.

  2. I second what Uncle Al said.

    Mr. Hubbard, I hope your “career” tanks and you are left destitute like so many country songs croon about. You are not a fellow American when you attack the Second Amendment or any of the BOR.

  3. Merle”s dead as is Johnny and Waylon….maybe he could spend some time with David Allen Coe after a three day bender….That’ll fix him….

  4. Glad he expressed himself so clearly. His music sucks so bad, maybe now I won’t have to hear even 2 seconds of it (the time it takes to change channels from my steering wheel)

  5. Whatever these idiots are putting out today does not even qualify as music, much less country music.

  6. With a rudder like that on the front of his face he’s probably a good swimmer.
    Go jump in the ocean and swim to Cuba Muther Hubbard!

  7. Because it is so lucrative, Country music draws a lot of artists who’s original discipline is anything but. A large number of country-rock performers are historically New Yorkers and Canadians, many of whom had never seen a horse or farm until their PR folks took them on a tour.

    I was at an open-air shooting range one time and along came a camera crew and some country act to do some shoots. I don’t know who they were, but the lead singer was a serious faggot-ass soy boy who had to be dressed by makeup artists. They did quick-draws with fake guns with the sound of us shooting as back-drop along with lots of up-angle shots in dusters, hats, and boots.

    FWIW, the target audience of country music is actually high school educated, white women between the ages of 14 and 45, so semi-fem guys probably fit right in.
