Duck Dynasty Star Speaks Against Push For Gun Control

posted on October 29, 2015

 Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson criticized recent calls for more gun control on Fox News’s “Outnumbered,” insisting, “Guns are in hands of mostly good people, just like police officers are mostly good people. Yes, there are bad ones. But you can’t make a sweeping take-away-the-whole-Second-Amendment over this.” 

Of recent shootings, he said, “The problem that they keep looking at something else to blame, which is the guns.” 

Robertson started the discussion by bringing up the recent incident at Oklahoma State University during which a woman drove her car into a school-sanctioned parade, killing four people and injuring many more. Highlighting the tragedy of four people being killed in Oklahoma at a homecoming parade, the reality TV star wondered: “God forbid she has mental illness and that’s why she just ran her car through. Are we taking cars away now?”
