Addressing the issue of gun control, singer-songwriter James Taylor has stated recently 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, Taylor was asked if he agreed with Obama’s executive actions on gun control.
“I think the nation is very divided on gun control, 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."
To prove what a Obamarobot he is, he gushed “I love this president for so many reasons.”
He then informed the interviewer that he's composing a new song called "Guns and Pain." Loosely based on his former hit, Fire and Rain, its chorus is, "I've seen guns and I've seen pain, but now I want government to orchestrate the game, and I never really loved freedom just the same."
