Country musician who played at Las Vegas festival reverses pro-gun stance after deadly massacre

Published

A famous country music guitarist who survived the Mandalay Bay shooting massacre has renounced his support for the 2nd Amendment.

Josh Abbott Band guitarist Caleb Keeter posted on Twitter that he had, “been a proponent of the 2nd Amendment my entire life. Until the events of last night.”

“I cannot express how wrong I was,” Keeter admitted.

“Writing my parents and the love of my life a goodbye last night and a living will because I felt like I wasn’t going to live through the night was enough for me to realize that this is completely and totally out of hand,” Keeter explained. “These rounds were powerful enough that my crew guys just standing in a close proximity of a victim shot by this f*cking coward received shrapnel wounds.”

“We need gun control RIGHT. NOW” Keeter concluded.

“My biggest regret is that I stubbornly didn’t realize it until my brothers on the road and myself were threatened by it,” Keeter noted.

“That being said, I’ll not live in fear of anyone,” Keeter said in a subsequent tweet. “We will regroup, we’ll come back, and we’ll rock your f*cking faces off. Bet on it.”

Heather Maravola replied, “it’s frustrating that some don’t call the fire dept until the blaze is at their own front door. But we need more people on our side. Welcome.”

Keeter agreed with her comment.

“You are all absolutely correct,” he replied. “I saw this happening for years and did nothing.”

“But I’d like to do what I can now,” Keeter offered.

Published

It remains unclear exactly what were the issues cited by the whistleblower who expressed concern at actions of President Donald Trump as a threat to national security, at least one of which involved a promise the president allegedly made in a phone call with a foreign leader.

But former Gen. Barry McCaffrey had a chilling thought about what it could possibly be — and posted his speculation on Twitter:

SHEER SPECULATION. Is it possible that the WHISTLEBLOWER issue was Trump discussing with Putin handing over our former US Ambassador to Moscow Mike McFaul to Russian authorities? https://t.co/0PnQn0upiA
