After the massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, knee-jerk liberals predictably demanded tougher gun control laws, including the president, Hillary Clinton and a myriad of celebrities, but country music star Toby Keith thinks that idea is just foolish.
Keith was on the red carpet at the induction ceremony for the Songwriters Hall of Fame on June 18 when he was asked if he thought tougher gun control laws would have prevented what happened in Charleston the night before.
“There’s countries all over the world that have really, really strict gun polices, like Oslo, Norway, and stuff. It happens there,” he said. “If it can happen in church, it can happen anywhere, so there’s no answer to it. You can’t predict when evil’s gonna show up.”
He pointed out that in the United States, potential victims can defend themselves.
“If there would’ve been an officer in there worshipping that day and he would’ve had his pistol with him, maybe seven or eight of those nine people would still be alive,” Keith said. “So I don’t know the answers to it. It’s a real difficult thing to do.
“But thank God in America that sometimes you will have an officer or something that will take care of it. Like the shooting in Dallas when they showed up down there,” he said referring to the attempted Islamist terrorist attack at the “Draw Muhammad” contest promoted by Pamela Geller.
“You know, the officer was waiting and he had a pistol and they had AKs and he took them both down. So sometimes there is a good sheepdog around when the wolf shows up.”
