Cam Says Gun Control Isn’t About Trying to Take Away Your Guns


After the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in October, during which 58 people were killed, more and more country music stars are starting to share their feelings on the topic of gun control.

During a recent interview with Rolling Stone Country, Cam didn’t hold back, “I think the next step that you think of is how concerned everyone is for security. Then the next part is gun control and talking about what that means. I think people are realizing the divisiveness over, like, when people are trying to make it like someone’s trying to take away your guns. Nobody’s trying to take away guns. Eighty percent of gun owners believe that there should be background checks.”

She also said that it’s a big issue, but something everyone should be able to agree on, “People wanted to come on Twitter and come at me for backing background checks. And the thing is, the overall narrative becomes ‘which side are you on?’ As if there’s a side to a completely multifaceted thing. I hope that people can start seeing through that. What you realize is that there is something we can all agree on, and it’s just that nobody should be able to walk in and buy that many guns. We do it for Sudafed! We can come up with a couple basic things, and it’s not anti-guns. I’m coming from a household that has guns. I think not letting politics divide everyone is hopefully where we’re headed.”
