CMA Awards to Press: 'Don't ask about gun control/Vegas shooting on the red carpet'

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Country Music Association is warning media outlets to avoid questions about a recent mass shooting in Las Vegas, gun rights or political affiliations at their annual awards show next week or risk losing credentials.

In media guidelines for Wednesday’s 51st annual CMA Awards held in Nashville, Tennessee, the association said the restrictions were “out of respect for the artists directly or indirectly involved” and they wanted everyone “to feel comfortable talking to press.” Media who strayed from the guidelines could have their credentials “potentially revoked via security escort.”

It’s like a DARE. “Don’t dare ask us relevant questions, free press!”

Armed, I assume?
