19 Country Singers Added to CRKBA “Gun Prohibitionist” List

BELLEVUE, WA – Headlined by Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Faith Hill, and Taylor Swift, 19 prominent County music artists have been added to the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms’ (CCRKBA) gun prohibitionist list.

The list of performers, obviously tone deaf to their core audience as well as oblivious to the Second Amendment, have clearly declared their disdain for reasonable self-defense, according to the website Taste of Country. Their names have been included on the list of “Don’t Feed the Gun Prohibitionists,” an ongoing project of the CCRKBA altering gun owners and citizens of those who donate to anti-gun control entities, or who publicly speak out against basic liberties.

“It is shocking that the culture of Country music has been infiltrated by liberal politics,” remarked CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “Apparently, these figureheads who are wildly popular across middle America fail to recognize the importance of fundamental rights to law-abiding citizens and public safety.”

Diva Taylor Swift has been a thorn in the side of firearms advocates after she donated a large sum of money to March for Our Lives organization, a Michael Bloomberg funded entity promoting gun control. The singer has also been a proponent of firearms restrictions reflected through several viral social media posts.

“These Country music performers may be talented on the stage, but have clearly missed a couple of notes in giving a lackluster performance in regards to civics,” quipped Gottlieb. “Unfortunately, their celebrity status gives them a certain amount of credibility to the masses and the ability to spread propaganda and myths that are a detriment to the Second Amendment.

“It is both ironic and disappointing that some of these artists employ armed security professionals,” said Gottlieb. “The hypocrisy of the left never fails and is an unrelenting force against gun rights ultimately wasting valuable resources to battle against the nonsense.”

The “Don’t Feed the Gun Prohibitionists” project was launched in 2019 by Gottlieb, and takes information obtained from the Federal Election Commission database and other sources to inform the public about those in the business world and celebrities who donate, or are aligned with the anti-gun movement.

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (www.ccrkba.org) is one of the nation's premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.
