It’s funny, this social media thing. Which stories will get legs and which ones won’t? You just never know.
See, I’m always researching and mining for interesting content to talk about on the air and also to post on the AAR Facebook pages, etc. After reading the Breitbart News piece written by my good friend and on-air, 2A political analyst, Dr. AWR Hawkins about country artist Jamey Johnson’s canceled show at the Myrtle Beach House of Blues this past Friday, July 23rd 2017, I posted it.
Just how much response it would get, I had no idea. Hours after placing the story on the AAR Facebook page, it’s been shared hundreds and hundreds of times has reached nearly a quarter million folks and continues growing. Naturally, this story has appealed to those of us concerned about our CCW rights and emphasizes just how much we care about the issue when denied our right to carry by a private establishment.
You may or may not have heard about the incident so if not, here’s the “crib-note” version. It appears that HOB placed a metal detector between the band’s bus and the artist entrance to the venue. Jamey refused to be disarmed and was denied entry into the club without going through the detector. As a result, concert promoter Live Nation and HOB announced the cancellation of the show after each party “stuck to their guns.” Drummer, TC Coleman, made the following statement regarding the incident:
“As a member of Jamey’s band, House of Blues management ‘Live Nation’ was wrong for how they treated the situation. Jamey was ready to give an amazing performance as he has done every night since the year and 3 months I’ve been in his band. I stand with him on this. House of Blues didn’t need to treat us like we were terrorist. They put a medal(sic) detector between Jamey’s busses and the stage entrance and the only people coming in and out of his buses was us. His band and crew and we all have laminated stage identification.”
“We did not come to House of Blues to be treated like we are going to kill the fans. If someone came backstage to harm anybody you better pray there is a Jamey Johnson type individual around.”
