At a town hall meeting in New Hampshire, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said that he would not take firearms and that attempting to do so wouldn’t be an effective way to reduce school shootings.
After RFK Jr. emphasized that he is not trying to take away weapons, Will Fite of the National Gun Rights Association posted about the upcoming townhall this week.
Furthermore, he cited the Supreme Court of the United States Bruen (2022) ruling and said that, even if tighter gun regulation were desired, it would be impossible to “do anything” to achieve it.
RFK Jr. concentrated on school shootings and disproved arguments that removing weapons would effectively thwart such assaults.
In the space provided to us by this extremely broad Supreme Court judgment, he declared, “Anyone that tells you that you and I can put an end to the act of violence to our children that is currently occurring by taking away people’s firearms [Bruen] is not being honest with you.”
“Something has changed in this country,” RFK Jr. said. “We have always had firearms, so it has nothing to do with the guns.” He thinks that instead of concentrating on weapons, we should look at how mental illness medications affect children.
In a chat with Elon Musk that took place on June 5, 2023, RFK Jr. stated, “My attitude on gun control is that I have no plans to be taking away anybody’s firearms. I’m a staunch constitutional maximalist, and the Supreme Court has already decided the matter.”
In response to the topic of mass shootings in general, he stated that he would “thoroughly investigate” any potential involvement of “psychiatric drugs” in well-publicized massacres.
