During an interview with Billboard, country singers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill discussed gun control.
The two had several friends at the festival where a gunman opened fire and killed 58 people and injured 527 others, making it the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
McGraw stated, “Look, I’m a bird hunter ― I love to wing-shoot.”
He continued, “However, there is some common sense that’s necessary when it comes to gun control. They want to make it about the Second Amendment every time it’s brought up. It’s not about the Second Amendment.”
Hill added, “In reference to the tragedy in Las Vegas, we knew a lot of people there.”
She continued, “The doctors that [treated] the wounded, they saw wounds like you’d see in war. That’s not right. Military weapons should not be in the hands of civilians. It’s everyone’s responsibility, including the government and the National Rifle Association, to tell the truth. We all want a safe country.”

On Wednesday, country music stars came together to honor the victims of the Las Vegas shooting at the Country Music Association Awards in Nashville.
McGraw and Hill are known to be more outspoken than most country stars.
Back in 2015, McGraw received criticism for performing at a Sandy Hook Promise benefit, an organization that was calling for stricter gun control after the Sandy Hook shooting.
