Toby Keith: If Someone At Charleston Church Had a Gun Maybe Some Victims Would Still Be Alive


by Bill Callen | Top Right News

Whenever there is a mass shooting in the country, expect there to be the usual calls for new gun control laws from the Left and their counterparts in Hollywood.

However, country singer Toby Keith is not one of those Hollywood gun control fanatics.

In fact, Keith is taking quite the opposite approach, making a logical point that the media and Hollywood have yet to mention in regards to the Charleston, South Carolina shooting.

It was 24 hours after a lone white gunman shot up a Bible-study meeting at an historic African-American church Charleston, S.C., killing nine people and sending Americans into another national paroxysm of despair over violence, guns and racism.

Appearing on the red carpet at the Songwriters Hall of Fame gala in New York where he was being inducted, Keith said stricter gun laws would not have made a difference in Charleston.

“If it can happen in church, it can happen anywhere, so there’s no answer to it,” Keith said.

Countries with tough gun policies and very few guns in private hands, such as Norway, still have gun massacres, Keith said, apparently referring to the 2011 shootings and bombings of 77 people, many of them children, by a far-right and racist terrorist in and near Oslo.

Keith said it’s hard to predict when violence will happen. But if an armed police officer had been at the prayer meeting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, “maybe seven or eight of those nine people would still be alive.”

This is the logical standpoint from conservatives and libertarians. The idea that making guns harder to obtain would have prevented the Charleston church shooting is not only stupid, its illogical.

As you can imagine though, Hollywood and the media are about to come after Keith, so he better get ready for the onslaught of hate from the gun control fanatics.

      If Evil want to succeed, Evil will find a way. This is NOT a gun rights issue. it is a Mental Health/Drug Issue…like MOST mass shootings.

    Hey TK, do the restaurants that bear your name still prohibit concealed carry?

  • Albert Schmitlap.

    I Don’t like this person but he Does have a point. It have been proven over and over that guns SAVE more lives then take them. In fact, states WITH gun permits issued to citizens on the streets have a lower crime rate and that include Murder.

    If someone wents to do this kind of thing they will find away, doesn’t have to be a gun. As Fred said could have been a pressure cooker or a knife, going to out law pot , pans and knives. As our pastor said yesterday it starts with teaching love for each other, then we have to know how to pretect our self. You see the Oboma’s guards carry guns, they don’t say we will just put them down and nothing bad is going to happen to him. No they show and us guns to pretect the presedent.

    If God actually existed maybe all of the victims would still be alive.

    • JPM

      Try if the Devil didn’t exist all these victims would still be alive.

      • independent_az

        So you’re saying the Devil is more powerful than God? Wow.

        • Jpm

          no I’m saying it’s who you choose to believe in some idiots like you choose to believe there is no God and then other smart people like me choose to believe there is a creator and we call him God

          • independent_az

            So you think it’s smart to believe in an imaginary supreme being without any evidence whatsoever? Wow. Do you also believe in Zeus? Osiris? Vishnu? If not, think about why not and then apply that to your belief in God.
            Finally, where was your “god” before and during the shooting?

          • Keet Hensley

            Welcoming some wonderful believers home you butt head. To unbelievers like you Death is the end, to us it is just the beginning. FYI those lesser gods were in the Bible too. Man you even missed the first book of the Bible class. If a statement has to be made for GOD and it took my life, big deal, I have had more proof than I ever needed that GOD is real and in my life. You should find your own answers and quit preaching to the Quire.

  • Fed up with liberals

    Moronic political correctness created gun free zones. If one looks at all the mass shootings in recent history, you will note that most if not all of them take place in gun free zones where people with legal permits to carry could not do so due to ridiculous PC anti gun hatred. Meanwhile, the mental cases bent on doing something like this have a huge pool of places to choose from to do the deed thanks to idiot politicians and left wing lawyers trying to restrict our legal 2nd amendment rights.

    • Entitled to my opinion

      Don’t go where you legally can’t carry.
      Don’t spend money where they don’t allow legal gun owners to carry.
      I’m not going to support a business that doesn’t support our rights.
      I’m not going to put myself in a situation that I can not reasonably protect myself if $hit goes wrong.
