"We actually have members of our crew with CHL licenses, and legal firearms on the bus. They were useless. We couldn’t touch them for fear police might think we were part of the massacre and shoot us. A small group (or one man) laid waste to a city with dedicated, fearless police officers desperately trying to help, because of access to an insane amount of fire power. Enough is enough," he continued.
Keeter went on to declare, "We need gun control RIGHT. NOW. My biggest regret is that I stubbornly didn’t realize it until my brothers on the road and myself were threatened by it."
"We are unbelievably fortunate to not be among the number of victims killed or seriously wounded by this maniac," Keeter continued.
Keeter also responded to critics who called him out on not having a change of heart until it affected him personally.
"It's frustrating that some don't call the fire dept until the blaze is at their own front door. But we need more ppl on our side. Welcome," one user wrote. Keeter replied, "You are all absolutely correct. I saw this happening for years and did nothing. But I'd like to do what I can now."
