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

Published

on

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.

Here are 3 winners and 3 losers from the 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate

Published

on

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined the other leading Democratic presidential primary candidates Wednesday night in the fieriest evening of the race so far.

His presence on the stage drew fire from the other candidates, but it also seemed to change the overall tone of the debate, with more attacks, counter-attacks, and passion than was generally seen earlier in the campaign.

Here’s a (necessarily subjective!) list of the winners and losers from the fray:

Winners

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) — Warren hit her stride right as the debate started by attacking Bloomberg for his record on the mistreatment of women, racist policies, and his tax returns. She repeatedly came back to skewer the former mayor, making herself the biggest and most notable presence in the debate. But importantly, she also continuously brought the discussion back to the issues she cares about — like expanding health care, environmental justice,  and consumer protection — while getting in digs at the other candidates on the stage.

Someone online changed former Mayor Michael Bloomberg's information on Wikipedia during the Wednesday debate to say that he died on Feb. 19.

After being ripped to shreds during the MSNBC Democratic debate, it became clear that Bloomberg wasn't quite as prepared as the other Democratic candidates.

The Wikipedia article was also changed to indicate that his cause of death was Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Bloomberg had several unfortunate moments, namely his refusal to release female accusers from nondisclosure agreements, he came out in favor of fracking, he blamed India for China's involvement in climate change, and many many more things.

At the Democratic presidential debate in Nevada, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg stumbled after being asked when he will release his tax returns, when he suggested that he "can't go to TurboTax" because he's too wealthy.

Moderator: "You've said you'll release your tax returns, but why do Democrats have to wait?"

Bloomberg: "We do business around the world. The document will be thousands of pages. I can't go to TurboTax."
