A few hours later, he posted a video on the Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers Facebook page. He begins the video by quoting Shakespeare's Macbeth.
"From Macbeth, Act 4, Scene 3, Macduff says, 'Bleed, bleed, poor country. Great tyranny, I think our country sinks beneath the yolk. It weeps. It bleeds. And each new day, a gash is added to our wounds.'"
He goes on to explain that Macduff eventually kills MacBeth, the tyrant of Scotland and while the play and our reality have some similarities, he just wants our country's leaders to do something about it.
"Folks, God in my heart knows that I want nothing to happen to our leaders," he says passionately. "I pray for their safety everyday, but I hope this will wake them up to the fact that our country is bleeding and a new gash has been added today in California."
Gatlin offers some advice, saying, "The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to have a good guy with a gun. I'm an American with a Remington. Let's pray for each other, because we badly need it."
