Megyn Kelly shreds gun control talk, "assault weapons aren’t going away"

Published in Blog on March 29, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

Days after the horrendous shooting at a Christian elementary school in Nashville, former Fox News anchor and podcast host Megyn Kelly is speaking out against the "knee-jerk" gun-grabbing response regurgitated in political spheres. 

A mentally sick woman, who identified as a transgender man, shot and killed six people inside the school, three staff members and three nine-year-old students. 

During her Tuesday radio show, Kelly, who has a nine-year-old son, described her concerns for our society and insisted on real discussions instead of the go-to gun control talk. 

“There’s something wrong with our society, and I for one am f***ing sick of the knee-jerk — ‘It’s the guns. Get the guns,’” she declared. “We have 330 million guns, it may be over 400 million by some counts in America. They’re not going away. We could do an assault weapons ban tomorrow. They’re not going away. All right? We have to take a serious, honest look at what’s wrong with us.”

Meanwhile, politicians like Rep. Nany Pelosi quickly pounced at the chance to bring legislation to the table surrounding gun bans. During a Tuesday night interview, she said it's time to save lives by passing an assault weapons ban. 

Taking into consideration the millions of assault weapons owned by law-abiding citizens, Kelly approached saving lives in the opposite manner. 

“In the wake of these tragedies, I don’t want to say all the time, but too often we see copycats. I know I’m worried about it, I’m sure every parent out there is worried about it right now. And if you don’t have a lot of security at your school, now’s the time to beef up, right now.”

Increasing security allows the good guy to stop the bad guy, whereas increasing government regulation hinders the good guy while enabling the bad guy. Criminals don't follow the laws now and they aren't going to start if gun control laws are passed. 

Highlighting the brave police officers who stopped the shooter in her tracks, Kelly said their incredible courage "makes you proud as can be of our law enforcement.”

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:
