Of all of the ways in which the Second Amendment is misunderstood in America, the most glaring error by the left has alway been their refusal to acknowledge the words “shall not be infringed”.
As terror grips much of the globe, it has become apparent that ISIS and other hate groups are turning to crowded arenas as venues in which they can inflict maximum carnage in minimal time. In France, it was a concert by the Eagles of Death Metal at the Bataclan. In England, it was the crowd departing an Ariana Grande concert. Now, one country artist in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina has has had his concert canceled due to his unwillingness to disarm himself, despite the growing concerns over terrorism in the United States.
“Country artist Jamey Johnson’s July 23 concert at House of Blues, Myrtle Beach, (HOBMB) was cancelled after he apparently refused to disarm while in the venue.
“On Sunday, HOBMB announced the cancellation via a Facebook post: ‘As always, the safety and security of our guests is our number one priority. Tonight’s artist refused to adhere to our safety and security guidelines and would not enter the building. Unfortunately, tonight’s show is cancelled.'”
One of Jamey’s bandmates took to social media to lambast the decision by the House of Blues, outlining the absurdity of the venue’s claims that Johnson’s firearm would somehow be a danger to his fans.
Terrorism isn’t the only concern at concerts either. Many will recall the death of “Dimebag” Darrell of heavy metal band Pantera who was shot and killed onstage in Ohio during a concert in 2004. His brother, drummer Vinnie Paul was also shot by the crazed gunman but has fully recovered.
Artists such as Johnson have plenty of reasons to take the extra precautions of armed security, or even arming themselves, and the unconstitutional decision by the House of Blues is certainly a cause for concern among concertgoers in South Carolina. Now, after openly admitting their firearm policy in such a public way, the venue itself may have inadvertently put themselves on the radar of the world’s evildoers who prefer gun-free zones to commit their atrocious acts.
