Social-Media Firestorm Flares Over McGraw Benefit On Gun Violence


A social-media firestorm has broken out over the news that superstar country musician Tim McGraw will be headlining a benefit concert for a nonprofit aimed at protecting children from gun violence. The Christian Science Monitor says the incident shows the deep divide in the national debate regarding firearms. It also raises the question of where advocates on both sides might find common ground amid what appear to be many contradictory opinions. Sandy Hook Promise, an organization named for the Newtown, Ct. school where a lone gunman killed 20 children and six educators in 2012, said McGraw would be the headlining act at a summer fundraiser in Hartford.
