WASHINGTON — Addressing the issue of gun control, singer-songwriter James Taylor told The Daily Caller that Americans “need to make some sacrifice[s] to our freedoms” in order to keep children safe.
Following his performance at President Obama’s second inauguration, The DC asked Taylor if he agreed with Obama’s executive actions on gun control.
“I think the nation is very divided on gun control,” Taylor told The DC, “but I think the majority of us feel strongly — even the majority of gun owners feel strongly — that we need to make some sacrifice[s] to our freedoms, if that’s the way to put it. We need to make some sacrifices to what we might want to have, in order to safeguard our children.” [...]
So, if we surrender some of our liberty, kids will be safe? I beg to differ Mr. Taylor, and Old Ben Franklin would definitely have some sagacious words about giving up liberties in exchange for security.
