Country power couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw have expressed their support for "common sense gun control" in a new interview with Billboard Magazine.

The in-depth interview happened  less than two weeks after a man with an arsenal of legally purchased military-grade guns shot and killed 58 people at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas (but before the Sutherland Springs, Texas, church ­shooting that killed 26), Billboard reports. 

Billboard wrote that "McGraw and Hill both make it clear: They support gun control."

“Look, I’m a bird hunter -- I love to wing-shoot,” McGraw told the magazine. “However, there is some common sense that’s necessary when it comes to gun control. They want to make it about the Second Amendment every time it’s brought up. It’s not about the Second Amendment.”

Hill told the magazine, “In reference to the tragedy in Las Vegas, 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. It’s everyone’s responsibility, including the government and the National Rifle Association, to tell the truth. We all want a safe country.”
