Tim McGrawMakes Statement

Defends concert participation

17 Apr, 2015

McGraw sees no conflict in his upcoming participation in a concert to benefit Sandy Hook Promise after critics call the show a gun-control fundraiser. He says he can both be a gun owner and support the concert. He is taking part in the concert because a band member is friends with a parent whose child was a victim of the shooting at the Newtown school.

Let me be clear regarding the concert for Sandy Hook given much of the erroneous reporting thus far. As a gun owner, I support gun ownership. 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. I can’t imagine anyone who disagrees with that. The concert is meant to do something good for a community that is recovering.
