The country music community is giving their support to the victims of the Thousand Oaks shooting in California.

During a “college country night” at Borderline Bar and Grill, twelve people were killed by a shooter who then turned the gun on himself.

Many of the victims were shocked and were in disbelief that the shooting happened in a state with some of the most strict gun laws in the country.


Many country music stars spoken out and offered support to the victims and their families:

John Rich called for his followers to pray for the families of those killed.

Country music icon Loretta Lynn also offered up prayers to those affected.

Charlie Daniels focused on the officer shot in the line of duty.

In an Instagram post, Brad Paisley offered his condolences.

LeAnn Rimes Cibrian offered her support after seeing breaking news of the shooting.

Rosanne Cash spoke out in favor of gun control after news of the shooting broke.

The shooter was found to be a Marine veteran who could have potentially been suffering from PTSD. While authorities are still investigating the situation, this may be an example of a tragedy that could have been prevented if the shooter had gotten help.

Lets start psychiatric evaluations on every new potential gun owner. never mind so much whether a felon has a gun. At least they already have a history.


You cannot legislate this issue away by banning guns. Until we start to look at the excuses we give people with “mental issues” to continue on with their destructive mentality, we will get nowhere on this issue.


something NOT mentioned in the MSM: the shooter was confined for mental illness/PTSD but released.

There’s a parallel here between “catch & release”illegal felons and the mentally ill. Why are any one of them allowed to roam the streets?
