John Rich of Big & Rich has challenged Florida’s Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard, Dierks Bentley, and other artists to a gun debate.
In an interview with Fox News he said, “You realize there's three or four hundred million guns in the United States right now. You can't get 'em. They're already sold, they're already out there. They're grandfathered in. So, I would ask those artists, 'What laws would you propose?'… Give me a solution, I never hear the solution of what it would be.”
Tyler had posted online and asked artist to join him in supporting TOMS’ End Gun Violence Together campaign. The focus of the campaign is not about taking guns away from people, instead it focuses on enforcing existing gun laws. The campaign was launched in the wake of the mass shooting that killed twelve people at the Borderline Bar & Grill in California in November.
