"They want to make it about the Second Amendment every time it’s brought up," McGraw added of violent incidents. "It’s not about the Second Amendment."
McGraw and Hill, both 50, are promoting their first album together, "The Rest of Our Lives," out Nov. 17.
"In reference to the tragedy in Las Vegas," his wife continued, “we knew a lot of people there. The doctors that [treated] the wounded, they saw wounds like you’d see in war. That’s not right."
"Military weapons should not be in the hands of civilians," Hill said. "It’s everyone’s responsibility, including the government and the National Rifle Association, to tell the truth. We all want a safe country."
Since their interview with Billboard, a gunman in Texas targeted churchgoers last Sunday and killed 26, according to police, who have included an unborn child in the death count.
