Country Music Start Justin Moore is a proud supporter of the National Rifle Association. So much so that at a recent concert in Fairfax, Virginia, he made the following announcement.
“I was at the NRA museum today. And if you don’t like that you can get the hell out – respectfully.”
He then launched into his song, “Guns,” which contains the following lyrics, “Guns, whether Remingtons or Glocks. / Come on man it, ain’t like I’m a slingin’ ’em on the block. and “I’m gonna tell you once and listen son. / As long as I’m alive and breathing, /You won’t take my guns.”
Moore also sat down with Townhall.com to do an interview promoting his new album, “Kinda Don’t Care.”
Moore was asked about lawmakers who push an anti-Second Amendment agenda and what causes them to do so.
“‘Misguided’ is the perfect word,” he said, referring to anti-gun politicians. “I think ‘misinformed’ is another.”
Moore went on to say that attacking the Second Amendment is a “cop out” for addressing the fundamental causes of violence.
“Mental health is the real problem,” he explained. “If it wasn’t guns, it would be knives, etc. To blame it on the tool being used, in my opinion, is ignorant. They want to put a Band-Aid over a gaping wound in my opinion. You’re trying to rationalize with irrational people. It’s impossible. The problem isn’t the NRA, we’re not the ones out there doing extreme things.”
The country singer, who came out in support of Donald Trump almost two years ago, said that now he’s not worried about the government trying to confiscate his firearms.
“Yes, absolutely,” he said. “I’m really excited.”
Moore isn’t the only one who is excited, many gun owners are thrilled about the possibilities of what a Trump administration might mean for the Second Amendment. Will suppressors be deregulated? Will there be 50-state concealed carry reciprocity? Will the NFA be repealed? Will sanctions blocking the importation of historical firearms, e.g. M1 Garands, M1 Carbines, be removed?
Only time will tell. In the meantime, have a listen to Moore’s song “Guns” or one of his other hits, “NRA Country.” It feels good to support artists who support the 2A.
