Country Star And ‘Gun Guy’ Blames NRA For Las Vegas Tragedy


Country music star Eric Church has called out the National Rifle Association (NRA), saying he “blame[s] the lobbyists” for not stopping mass shootings like the one at a Las Vegas music festival he headlined last year.

Mr Church took on America’s biggest gun rights lobbying group in a new interview, saying they were part of the reason few gun control measures were passed after the October mass shooting.

“I don’t care who you are – you shouldn’t have that kind of power over elected officials,” Mr Church told Rolling Stone of the lobbying group.

He added: “At this point in time, if I was an NRA member, I would think I had more of a problem than the solution. I would question myself real hard about what I wanted to be in the next three, four, five years.”

The 41-year-old headlined the multi-day Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas where a lone gunman opened fire in October, killing 58 people and wounding more than 800. While Mr Church had played his last show two days earlier, he said he was “wrecked” by the knowledge that his fans were among the victims.
