Back in 1990’s I was a bit of a fan of Tim McGraw. It is a shame that he has turned out to be an outspoken opponent of the Second Amendment. Apparently his hoplophobia does not apply to knives and other potentially lethal tools, as told in this somewhat amusing anecdote of the time he answered the door for the arrival of his daughter’s date, wearing a bloody apron and wielding a bloody knife.
From Yahoo News:
Everybody says he’s a really nice guy. We put our Secret Service guys on it, they checked him out, everything’s good.’ I said, ‘OK, they can go out tonight, but I’ll be home tomorrow. So around noon, I want him to come by the house just so I can say hi to him, look him in the eye, and shake his hand.
”McGraw got home around 2 a.m. and had to get up early the next day to get ready to host a barbecue at the house.“
We’re doing a barbecue, so I’m in the kitchen, and I forget that he’s coming. I have a white apron on and a knife and I’m trimming meat up, so I’ve got chunks of meat all over this white apron, blood everywhere,” he explained. “The doorbell rings, and I go and answer the door, and there’s this kid who’s dating Gracie standing there. I’ve got a knife in my hand and a bloody apron on, and it worked out really well!”Well, that’s one way to make a first impression!
Funny enough, McGraw previously confessed to meeting one of his daughter’s dates with a sledgehammer.
Maybe his fear of firearms stems from his desire for self-preservation. If he pulled a stunt like that on the wrong person he could end up shot.
