Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard took to Instagram this week to advocate for gun control.  Hubbard shared a video supporting universal background checks, along with his thoughts on why it’s important to at least keep the dialogue open. “I still believe this is an important conversation that we can’t be afraid to have. Especially all of us who love our guns and want to protect our rights as Americans,” he captioned the public service announcement.

“Let’s get uncomfortable, address this issue, and really make this country a safe place to live. If we want to put an end to gun violence it has to start with us. We can make a change.” He added, “This is not a political post, but a post about the betterment of humanity.”

The singer previously spoke out about the need for more restricted gun control laws, in a video he shared on social media late last year.
