We Need To Keep Tabs On People With Lots of Guns

Eric Church Gun Control

“I’m a Second Amendment guy. That’s in the Constitution, it’s people’s right, and I don’t believe it’s negotiable. But nobody should have that many guns and that much ammunition and we don’t know about it.” – Eric Church in Country singer Eric Church blames NRA for inaction on gun control after Las Vegas shooting [via thehill.com]

    Hey douchenozzle, ask the Dixie Chicks how opening your yap to insult your customer base worked out for them.

          Favorite line from that movie by Slim Pickens was “What in the Wide Wide World of Sports is a-goin’ on here? I hired you people to get some track laid, not to jump around like a bunch of Kansas City faggots!”

          No disrespect to my gay friends, naturally.

      So for his new stage name, what would you guys think about “Dixie Chuck”?

      1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

        How about Dixie-Cuck instead?

        Dixie Dick would be better. Maybe a new gig for him as Dixie Dick and the Dixie Chicks

    3. avatar Garrison Hall says:

      ” . . . But nobody should have that many . . .” My answer to this kind of idiocy is simple: HOW IN THE HELL DO YOU KNOW? I had a similar discussion with a “gun-owner” who tired to tell me I didn’t “need” a 30 round magazine. When I asked him that question, there was a long silence as he just looked at me without answering. He really didn’t have an answer because isn’t one. This guy was just virtue-signalling, perhaps to his girfriend who’s afraid of guns.

      1. avatar Roger says:

        If you are an ethical hunter you just need one bullet.
        If you need more than one you are not a good shooter find another sport.
        If you want to have 30 rounds to kill people
        get the fuck out here

        1. avatar MickeyM says:

          If I have 500 gun and 1,000,000 rounds of ammo that’s my free choice and none of your business.
          Just keep on enjoying your 1st A right of free speech until someone says you don’t need it!

        2. avatar Martin Dyer says:

          So, you would rather let the animal suffer? Even a good hunter, with a good hit, doesn’t always kill with the first shot. And what would ethics have to do with it anyway? You obviously don’t have a clue.

        3. avatar Drake_Burrwood says:

          I suspect many just consider guns magical killie wands.

          And knowing more about them and the many different tools the different kinds of firearms are would force them to share our evilness.

        4. avatar You're an idiot says:

          #1: The Second Amendment isn’t about hunting
          #2: Have you ever put the sights of a gun on something other than a non living target?
          #3: It doesn’t matter what someone wants a thirty, forty, or hundred round magazine for, until it directly affects you, it’s none of your damned business, nor is it your damned place to tell someone how many rounds they should, or should not have.

        5. avatar Scoutino says:

          You obviously don’t know much about hunting.

          But what if there is 30 or more people that need shooting? Like in case of defending the free state?

          And who the hell are you to tell me what I need?!

        6. avatar William McLaughlin says:

          The man protecting the Sikh temple in 2012 was shot 17 times and kept fighting. He is a genuine American hero. (Police Lt. Brian Murphy was shot fifteen times at close range, including once in the face and once in the back of the head and an additional two times to body armor.)
          If two attackers had suffered the same damage during a home invasion they would have taken 34 hits and still have been coming.
          Contrary to President Obama’s use of him in his State of the Union Address, Brian Murphy is the poster child for large capacity magazines.
          How many rounds do you think it takes to get 34 hits in a dynamic situation? Stories of attackers not going down after being shot are not rare. So, what about a home invasion by multiple attackers (maybe more than two) makes you think I can have too large a magazine, too many guns, or too much ammo?
          Remember, the problem in Drunk Driving is Drunks, not driving, and the problem with Gun Violence is violence, not guns. People are the problem, not inanimate objects. Yes, taking away all the cars would stop drunk driving, but somehow, we all know that’s a stupid solution.

        7. avatar Michael Ejercito says:

          Have you ever bheard of the concept of multiple attackers?

        9. avatar Longhaired Redneck says:

          Just for the sake of the argument Roger, let’s assume that you are an intelligent guy…

          HaHaHa!!!! Sorry, I can’t even say that without laughing! You are apparently NOT an intelligent guy, you’re a moron! Deer hunting, or hunting in general is a tiny percentage of what gun owners do with their guns, and is not even mentioned in the Bill of Rights or the Constitution of the United States. More importantly, it’s none of your business what a law abiding citizen does with his person or property, whether it’s guns, bicycles, muscle cars, or any other legal private property. Mind your own damn business and leave us alone.

      2. avatar Leighton Cavendish says:

        My comeback is something along the lines of this:
        You only really NEED food and water and air…the rest are just WANTS. Even clothes and shelter. Humans lived outside for millennia.
        Especially good if they have an expensive car or watch…large house…expensive clothes/shoes/glasses…etc etc etc.
        Even better if they have multiple expensive houses, cars, etc…

        1. avatar Greg says:

          I agree with many up above in regards to the other “luxuries” that aren’t protected but people automatically believe they deserve. Case in point, many people have cars or bikes that can go in excess of 100+ mph; there isn’t a road in the US (anymore,) that I know of, where the speed limit allows for this. It’s dangerous and people die EVERY day from reckless driving, soo where’s the outrage? No one NEEDS a vehicle that can travel at those speeds. We should all be driving the same model, shape, color, etc. of some kind of Econo-car, if we use their logic. Or maybe we should go back to horses and horse drawn autos…

        I have a few guns. What I collect is brass, primers, powder, and bullets. Lot’s and lot’s and lot’s of it.

        And I pay for a lot of it in cash.

        Remember…beware the man that has only ONE gun.,..LOL
        I have plenty…but always a few on “the list”.
        Not a matter of needing. Only really NEED air, water and food.
        And it is the Bill of Rights…NOT the bill of NEEDS.,..just sayin’….

  17. avatar Jonathan-Houston says:

    What does knowing about someone’s firearms ownership get you? Then what? What do you do with that information? The answer is always confiscation, but when you say that, they deny it. Yet, there is no other alternative.

    In his case, he doesn’t explicitly say confiscation, but he does go on to say that nobody should even have that many guns snd that much ammunition. How will they downsize their arsenal? No answer.

    Take both statements about knowing who has guns and setting a limits on quantities and ta da! You have registration begetting confiscation.

    1. avatar LarryinTX says:

      Precisely. Knowing where every single firearm and every single knife and every single hammer in the freaking WORLD are will not change a thing. Hell, knowing where every single past or future killer in the world is will not change a thing. So, while running your mouth pretending you have great wisdom to share, explain what you plan to DO with that information which might accomplish anything, because that is not possible, unless you plan TOTAL CONFISCATION WORLDWIDE. Moron. That would force people to make their own. OOoops! Still nothing accomplished.

  18. avatar Old Guy in Montana says:

    I own SIX revolvers…am I over your limit Herr Church?

    1, 2, 10…25? What is this country music Constitutional scholar’s definition of “too many”?

    1. avatar Kenneth says:

      Its doubtful whether or not he can count. Probably needs to have his shoes off to count past ten.
      This is the obvious flaw in the “too many guns”, leftist BS. It begs the question; “And how many then CAN I have, according to you?” Their answer is always; “None”, but they know better than to say that. Instead, they say that there is no firm number, but they will define that part later. Too many sheep buy into this: We’ll make the statute now, and figure out what it means later. Any thinking human should know how dangerous such a useless non-answer is. Absolutely fraught with peril.

          so… 23 in the shower?

      2. avatar LarryinTX says:

        How many can you use, at any one time? How could owning more than that hurt anything?

        1. avatar Dev says:

          How many shirts can you wear at one time? How many pairs of shoes? How many dishes can you eat off of at one time? None of it matters and none of it is any of your business. You only want to own one gun fine, keep it to yourself. Most of us like to have choices and many of us like to collect, but that, again, is none of your business.

        2. avatar TheUnspoken says:

          I own a bunch of guitars, no doubt either Mr. Church or his bandmates as musicians also own at least a good number of instruments. In fact some pros or famous stars collect various instruments and own obscene quantities of them. Different guitar types and models get you a different sound, or play differently, or a certain vibe, or are traditional for certain types of music, or even just a “cool” look. How many is too many?

          As a musician and claimed gun guy he should know the same applies to guns. A bunch of guns doesn’t signify intent, just… That you have a bunch of guns. And are possibly wealthy, or that you don’t have any money left because you have…a bunch of guns.

          That’s why we need to repeal restrictions on possession of firearms. I don’t care if you have a grenade launcher, rocket launcher, machine gun, rifle, flame thrower… If you aren’t trying to commit a crime with them like robbery, murder, assault, threatening innocent people, then no harm done. Get rid of the pre-crime minority report laws that punish possession without intent.

          “That’s a scary looking vertical grip you put on that Glock, you’re going to jail!” “You own a bump stock? Jail!” “How long is that barrel?”

        3. avatar Geoff "Mess with the Bull, get the Horns" PR says:

          “How many can you use, at any one time?”

          Let’s drill this down a bit –

          OK, you can use a maximum of 2 at any one time.

          So, ‘2’ will be the most you will be ‘allowed’ to own.

          Now, as to “all that ammunition”. Personally, a fun day at the range for me can be over 500 rounds, *easy*.

          But with 500 rounds, I could potentially kill 500 school children! That won’t do!

          We need to limit the amount of ammunition you can ‘stockpile’ in your ‘bunker’ to only the maximum number of dead school children that society considers ‘acceptable’ to be killed in any one ‘spree’.

          Five. Five kids. So, the maximum number of rounds any one citizen should be allowed to own will be five rounds.

          Now, how to keep a ‘gun nut’ from amassing more than five rounds –

          Easy, by law, you cannot purchase ammunition unless you turn in your spent brass *first*. (And I do believe that’s actually a law in some countries!)

          There you have it, you may own only 2 firearms, and 5 rounds of ammunition.

          Unless you are a heartless bastard the wants more than 5 dead kids in any one ‘gun nut’ shooting spree.

          And that’s how easy it is to ‘respect the 2A’…

    Guess what? An individual who owns 4 guns, 29 guns, 395 guns, or 100,324 guns is precisely as dangerous (which is to say, not very) as the individual with 1 gun. OK, Two guns if you’re John Wick.

    Heck, if anything, I’m guessing the statistics would show that those owning more guns are actually LESS likely to commit a crime than those who own one.

    1. avatar Casey says:

      People think that owning lots of guns means you’re poor for some reason (maybe because of your gun habit? I don’t know), stupid, and unskilled.

      The same people, I assume, also think that owning a pickup truck means you’re poor, stupid, and unskilled. To the point of I had to withdraw an offer on a house (in Missouri, no less) because it had an HOA that forbade pickup trucks on the street or even in the driveway. Now, I was going to withdraw the offer just because it had an HOA, but I did ask… why no trucks?

      I was told, with a straight face, that the people in the neighborhood did not want their property prices driven down by the presence of pickup trucks.

      The neighbor next door has an ancient POS Neon. The guy in back has chickens, and is burning trash (which apparently involves lots of chicken sh!t). But yeah, it’s my $40k F350 Lariat Slick-top that’s going to drive the housing prices down.

      Not that there is any acceptable threshold but you aren’t going to track the man with 50 firearms unless you start with the man that has one. I wonder if Church is so ignorant he doesn’t see that or he expects his fans to be too ignorant to see that.

  49. avatar Wiregrass says:

    Just when I was starting to warm up to the guy, not because I care for his music, but because he has an appreciation of Ray Wylie Hubbard’s music, he goes and pulls this shit. Not that I was going to buy anything he does anyway.

  50. avatar Jackass Jim says:

    Considering how difficult it is to properly shoot more than one gun at a time, who care how many guns one person owns?

    1. avatar Joe R. says:

      +

      They should only start worrying when people start growing additional arms.

  51. avatar PavePusher says:

    ““I’m a Second Amendment guy,” Church said.”

    And then immediately proves he’s actually an ignorant, arrogant Fascist fuckwit who has no idea what the Second Amendment means.

    Get bent, asshole.

  52. avatar JFrame says:

    Well, one more entertainer that won’t see any of my money. But again, why would anyone care what a country singer has to say on politics? Eric, stick to singing. No NRA convention entertainment invite for you ever.
    Say goodbye to you career. Hope you saved some money while you were making it.

  53. avatar m. says:

    when i need another d-rat d-sucker “entertainer” or “celebrity” ahole to determine what i need, i know who to call

    1. avatar m. says:

      “we” usually means someone with a turd in their pocket

    “I’m a Second Amendment guy. That’s in the Constitution, it’s people’s right, and I don’t believe it’s negotiable. But nobody should have that many guns and that much ammunition and we don’t know about it.” – Eric Church

    But,but,but he Doesn’t!

    1. avatar LarryinTX says:

      Missed a golden opportunity to keep his mouth shut.

  55. avatar Jim Bullock says:

    “I’m a Second Amendment guy. …But…”

    The 2A exists, and is written in absolute terms — “…shall not be infringed.” — because attempts to dial back people’s ability to protect themselves, on their own terms, are way, way, way too prone to side-effects and shenanigans.

    You can “know about” someone having way too many guns — whatever that it — all you want as long as that “knowing” doesn’t infringe on their having, bearing, or using those guns at all.

    You don’t get to make having, bearing or using guns a new crime. You want to infringe their *having* all those guns, they have to do something criminal, first.

    Somehow, like talk of “safety”, this “knowing” suddenly becomes less important when we’re talking about ways to do that that do not infringe. It’s almost like this talk about “knowing” or “safety” was really about getting the infringement.

  56. avatar Bierce Ambrose says:

    Grabber all excited about getting his infringement on. It must be a day ending in “y”.

  57. avatar Squiggy81 says:

    I’m not a big country fan, but I’d rather give my money to a guy like Toby Keith any day. I’m guessing country will keep moving left as “Bro Country” replaces traditional country.

  58. avatar Joe R. says:

    “nobody should have that many guns and that much ammunition and we don’t know about it.” – Eric Church”

    That’s right, THEY SHOULD HIDE THEM IN YOUR ASS.

  59. avatar little horn says:

    yes we do. so i can go visit them and be jealous.

    Say hi to the DIXIE SLITS for me!Dumass

  61. avatar Andy says:

    Without reading nearly 100 comments, I’m taking a chance that no one has stated the obvious that the 2A now has quantity limits.

  62. avatar DaveDetroit says:

    I wonder how many guitars this guy has?!? No one NEEDS more than 1!!!

  63. avatar Stereodude says:

    I’m a First Amendment guy. That’s in the Constitution, it’s people’s right, and I don’t believe it’s negotiable. But nobody should have that many CD players and that many Eric Church CDs and we don’t know about it.

    1. avatar arc says:

      I giggled at this 😛

  64. avatar Chris Morton says:

    We should keep tabs on people who want to keep tabs on people…

    1. avatar Drake_Burrwood says:

      Yup…

  65. avatar Chris Morton says:

    ““I’m a Second Amendment guy. That’s in the Constitution, it’s people’s right, and I don’t believe it’s negotiable. But[…]”

    He reminds me of that Monty Python skit where Hitler comes back and declares, “I am not a racialist, BUT… and it’s a really BIG but…”

  66. avatar A O says:

    Just because this prick had a “Record Year”, doesn’t mean anyone should have a firearm related record of me.

    Two letters: F O

  67. avatar Robert says:

    I’m a second amendment guy but who needs that much ammo?= I’m a heterosexual but you’re looking mighty cute in them jeans.😀

      “I don’t want to sound like a queer or nothing, but…”

      1. avatar Drake_Burrwood says:

        Yes.. we understand what your calling it.

  68. avatar JW says:

    I’m a First Amendment guy. That’s in the Constitution, it’s people’s right, and I don’t believe it’s negotiable. But nobody should use their musical success as a platform for their idiotic opinions without being on a secret government watch list, investigated by undercover agents, and giving up all claim to fourth amendment rights.

    /sarc

  69. avatar psyop_overlord says:

    What an a$$! No one also needs the millions of dollars and many 100+MPH sports cars like he has. Why doesn’t he give away some of his money, or maybe the government should come in and monitor his bank account, place governors on his super fast cars to only go 50 as no one needs to drive faster than that. PISS OFF whoever you are (not into country pop music).

  70. avatar Paul McMichael says:

    Who? I saw Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Blue Oyster Cult, Tom Petty, Heart, Charlie Daniels, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Jr., I could go on, but you get the point. Who is this asswipe, and why should I care? See you in Tallahassee tomorrow!

  71. avatar piper says:

    The British tried that too. Tried and failed. : )

  72. avatar Ret1SG says:

    I don’t even know who this ass wipe is?? No matter, he’s not a “2nd Amendment guy”. Sounds to me he likes to have his guns but, no one else should…Lib much? And who give’s a shit what any “celebrity” has to say?

  73. avatar Tony says:

    Eric Church must not understand who his fan base is. Idiotic statements like this are a good way to get your fan base to dry up and blow away.

  74. avatar Gun Owning American says:

    Flushing his own career.

  75. avatar Hannibal says:

    I’m a 1st Amendment guy but you shouldn’t be able to protest the government.
    I’m a 4th Amendment guy, but why not let them search if you have nothing to hide?
    I’m a 3rd Amendment guy, but sometimes soldiers need a place to sleep

    Sounds pretty stupid, right? About as bad as what he said. Er… then again, I hear people say that stupid stuff all the time. Except the 3rd, that one’s a little unusual.

    1. avatar Indiana Tom says:

      They are working on that one. Keep the faith.

  76. avatar Indiana Tom says:

    “I’m a Second Amendment guy. That’s in the Constitution, it’s people’s right, and I don’t believe it’s negotiable. But nobody should have that many guns and that much ammunition and we don’t know about it.”
    So you just negotiated away your non negotiable right?
    I see this guy is part of the gifted and talented.

  77. Other people claim that we need to keep tabs on the Judenvolk, I heard that was policy in Germany about eighty years ago.

    there was even this special badge used to assist in that function.

    I wonder if anything bad happened as a result.

  78. avatar RA-15 says:

    ” country singer ” what country is that ?

  79. avatar Molon Labe says:

    This guy is no 2A supporter. He is a liberal who doesn’t understand that the NRA is the bulwark between gun owners ( him included) and the anti-2A haters. Eric Church, you have no business knowing how many firearms and ammunition law abiding gun owners have. People like you are a threat to the Constitution. I hope you go the way of the Dixie Chicks, There is little difference between y’all Rest assured I will not listen to your music.

  80. avatar Wally1 says:

    This is what happens when douchebags have some success and suddenly think they matter. Sell your music and keep your mouth shut about things you know nothing about. Amazing that they don’t have managers who tell them to stay out of political issues and focus on making money. It’s obvious he is a liberal, anyone else would have a clue and not destroy their customer base.

  81. avatar Ing says:

    I don’t think “I’m a Second Amendment guy” means what he thinks it means. Eric Church needs to put the O back in his c_untry music.

  82. avatar MickeyM says:

    Dixie Dick will regret speaking against his audience.

  83. avatar don h. says:

    if it werent for the NRA and other gun right groups we would have been a country depending on the goverment which is what the dems want.not very many dems listen to country .i think eric church just lost his fan base.

  84. avatar jester says:

    pfffft. just another tim mcgraw….

  85. avatar TexRancher says:

    I this clown just showed that he’s a two faced liberal. Want’s it both ways. Bet he voted for Kenya Boy, too!

  86. avatar LARRY TOOMEY says:

    only a real man not just a male by birth could understand the need of owning a gun.

  89. For Dan: How many guns did the guy say was too many? I didn’t see it in the article.

  90. avatar Paul says:

    “Better to remain silent and be thought a FOOL … then to speak and remove all doubt”

    Church should have this tattooed on the inside of his eyelids. And send a copy to LeBron James too. And then have “JUST SHUT UP” tatted on the back of both hands.

  91. avatar truckman says:

    It is anybody’s right to own as many guns and ammo as they want as long as they are not harming anybody and they can afford it and nobody has a right to know about it I wish I could but I am a poor man so I cannot and you are stupid to think any other way you can own as many guitars or any thing else you want not my business its yours same thing about guns and ammo as long as they can legally on guns whose business is but there’s
