Tim McGraw’s Anti-Gun Concert Has Taken Another Humiliating Hit

Country Music’s Tim McGraw made a mistake in his strategy and lost a large part of his fan base by headlining a concert for the anti-gun group Sandy Hook Promise. Then he compounded that problem by attempting to defend his decision: “As a gun owner, I support gun ownership,” McGraw argued in his statement. “I also believe that with gun ownership comes the responsibility of education and safety — most certainly when it relates to what we value most, our children.”

Now, to add insult to injury, at least eleven families of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy have distanced themselves from Sandy Hook Promise and made it clear they were not affiliated with the group in any way.

According to Breitbart, NBC reported that the group of families issued the statement “to clarify the issue for donors who might believe they are directly supporting the victims’ families.”

The families are concerned that the anti-gun group “is at times wrongly assumed to speak for all 26 victims’ families.”

McGraw’s response to Breitbart’s original reporting of the upcoming fundraiser concert, said, “Through a personal connection, I saw first-hand how the Sandy Hook tragedy affected families and I felt their pain.” He added, “The concert is meant to do something good for a community that is recovering.”

The concert, however, appears to be a fundraising event for a gun-control group with member Mark Barden dedicating “the rest of his life” to fighting for gun control measures.

Norfolk Daily News quoted the 11 families saying: “We wish only to provide clarification for the many generous donors that believe they are directly supporting the families at the center of this tragedy by contributing to the Sandy Hook Promise [organization].”

It seems there’s something rotten at the core of the Sandy Hook Promise group. Perhaps McGraw is just unaware.

    I do believe Tim McGraw owns guns as well as his bodyguards. so what does he think he’s doing besides destroying his career?

  7. It’s sad that Tim McGraw didn’t vet the group that he’s supporting. This is a total anti-gun group. The fact that 11 families are totally distancing themselves from the group says a lot too.

    I will never pay another dime towards Tim McGraw’s pockets again. I used to love his music but this has completely turned me away from his music. I refuse to pay homage to someone who doesn’t do his homework and who doesn’t support the constitution and the principles that our country was founded on. Sad.

    • So where was all of this support for the constitution when the Dixie Chicks were exercising their right to free speech?????

  8. I need my rockets and launchers, my armored tank, my personal nuke warheads and toxic quimical sprayers so I can feel secure going to walmart.

  9. From a guy who was born an raised in La. I am ashamed to say Tim McGraw is from the same state. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but when you force your liberal swamp juice down someone else throat, especially w/him being in the position he is in, he is infringing on mine and everyone else’s liberty to exercise their own constitutional rights. He needs to stick to what he is good at, play and sing music. Stay out of others business Tim McGraw.

  10. I am disappointed that Tim is supporting an anti gun group and I am tired of hearing about Sandy Hook altogether. …time to move on already!!!! There are other people who have suffered great tragedy and they have moved forward with their lives….time for Sandy Hook to do the same!!!!!!

    • But Sandy Hook was a gov’t engineered tragedy and anti-gun opportunity. Don’t you want them to get our money’s worth? (Your tax dollars at work)

  11. There were no victims. This was a huge government hoax.
