Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Country music duo Big & Rich are known for being the life of the party and their performance at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on October 1 was no exception. Performing alongside artists such as Jason Aldean, Jake Owen, and Kane Brown, they brought the music and it was tragically ended when a gunman unleashed a hail of gunfire on a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip.

John Rich, one half of the popular duo was at the Vegas bar he owns called the Redneck Riviera after finishing his own performance.  Aldean had taken the stage when the bullets began to fly. Rich states of the events as they unfolded –

“We played 90 minutes to two hours before Jason Aldean. We loaded up our bus, and there is a little country bar I have in Las Vegas that I own [Redneck Riviera], and we went over there to play a little after-show set. We were onstage there and got the tap on the shoulder that there was an active shooter.

We immediately stopped playing and got everyone away from the windows and tried to secure the location.”

On Sunday night at approximately 10 pm, 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 concertgoers. In the midst of a hail of gunfire, country music star John Rich was approached by an off-duty police officer in the bar at the time. He recalled the amazing thing that happened in an interview with Fox News – 

“I had an off-duty police officer, it was a Minneapolis police officer, off-duty, was in my bar hanging out. He came up to me and showed me his badge, and he says… ‘I’m a police officer and I’m not armed for the first time ever. I can’t believe it. Are you armed?’ I said yes I am armed. I had my concealed carry. He asked, ‘can I have your firearm so I can hold point on this door?’ So I handed over my firearm to him, everybody got behind him and for two hours he held point on that door without flinching.”

 

Big & Rich are known for such hits as “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy” and “Lost in This Moment.” Rich himself is an avid supporter of Second Amendment rights and extremely pro-America. Rich’s harrowing tale of the events that unfolded inside of the Las Vegas bar as a madman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel is vital to hear in light of the almost instant calls for further gun control measures being called for from the left. It is an important reminder that further restricting our rights to defend ourselves as law abiding citizens is the absolute LAST thing that needs to be on the table for discussion.

By Rich’s own admission the only thing that kept his bar patrons safe and able to go home to their families and loved ones was a good guy with a gun willing to step up, putting himself in harm’s way for the safety of others. Had Rich not been lawfully permitted to carry his own personal firearm and chosen to exercise that right, every single person within the Redneck Riveria would have been little more than a sitting duck for a raging madman armed to the teeth with his OWN firearms.

Some food for thought for those that are crazily calling on Congress about so-called “common sense gun reform” urging them to pass even more laws regarding the governance of self-protection and the restrictions thereof –

  1. Pretty sure mass murder is ALREADY illegal
  2. Pretty sure that those intent on harm don’t care about your laws or so-called common sense
  3. Pretty sure that no one can reason with crazy. Crazy is going to do what it wants when it wants

The only way for innocent citizens to protect themselves against the threat of these criminals is to arm themselves, as John Rich proved on Sunday. After the dust settled from the horrifying shooting in Vegas as people were trying to pick up the pieces and make sense of it all, Rich took to social media in his attempts to locate the off-duty cop willing to risk so much while not even on duty to protect people he did not know.

Rich eventually located the off-duty officer but the officer wished to remain anonymous.  Rich issued a public thank you to the officer for his bravery while respecting his wishes to remain anonymous.
