Families of 11 Sandy Hook Victims Distance Themselves from Tim McGraw’s Anti-Second Amendment Fundraiser

Families of 11 Sandy Hook Victims Distance Themselves from Tim McGraw’s Anti-Second Amendment Fundraiser

Tim McGraw is one of the few liberal country music stars and he has worked very hard to alienate his largely-conservative base by supporting and organization that supports an anti-Second Amendment agenda. Now, according to a report from Breitbart, Sandy Hook families are distancing themselves from the anti-gun fundraiser.

On April 22 families of 11 Sandy Hook Elementary victims made clear that they are not affiliated with Sandy Hook Promise, the gun control group for whom Tim McGraw is raising money.

There have been attempts to explain away Sandy Hook Promise’s support of gun control since Breitbart News’ April 14 report on McGraw’s upcoming gun control fundraiser. Since that time, former Obama adviser David Axelrod has come out in support of McGraw’s “gutsy” stand for the gun control fundraiser, and McGraw explained that he is sticking to his commitment to support Sandy Hook Promise because he is leading with his heart.

Now, NBC Connecticut reports that families of 11 Sandy Hook victims want “to clarify the issue for donors who might believe they are directly supporting the victims’ families.” These families worry that Sandy Hook Promise “is at times wrongly assumed to speak for all 26 victims’ families.”

The families made sure to point out that their decision to issue the statement “isn’t related to a position on the gun debate or other issues surrounding the tragedy,” rather they simply wanted to clarify that they are not affiliated with the group behind the McGraw concert.

Norfolk Daily News quoted the 11 families saying: “We wish only to provide clarification for the many generous donors that believe they are directly supporting the families at the center of this tragedy by contributing to the Sandy Hook Promise [organization].”

Few can be against helping families of the Newtown tragedy; however, what this organization does is not only to crusade against our constitutional rights, but it is a betrayal of these families.
