One of the most widely-debated hot-button issues in the country today, of course, is gun control. But just because her albums include such songs as "Gunpowder and Lead" and "Time to Get a Gun," that doesn't mean Miranda Lambert
relishes the idea of finding herself in the crossfire of such heated discourse, knowing as she does that sharing one's personal opinion on a highly-politicized topic could mean trouble for your career.
"I pretty much will answer any questions with a truthful answer, because that's just how I am," Miranda tells The Boot. "But when it comes to any sort of political debate or anything
revolving around politics, I'm a huge fan of the Dixie Chicks
and I saw what happened and I learned from that. I don't want to ever use my career or this thing that I've built as a platform to sway people to my direction, because, truthfully, I don't care. I just want to believe what I believe and be happy, and people can believe what they believe. I don't ever want to push my opinion on someone because I don't want them pushing their opinion on me."
