Following the horrific massacre in Las Vegas this past weekend many have criticized the gun laws in America. One person who criticized them and even went on to change his pro-gun stance was Josh Abbott Band guitarist Caleb Keeter, who feared for his life while the shooting was happening.
Keeter took to Twitter on Monday to share the horrors he lived during the shooting and how his stance on the 2nd Amendment has changed.
Keeter said 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.
Keeter went on to regret that it took him until his life was in danger to realize the country needed gun control.
“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.”
