Tim Kennedy Went On Fox & Friends To Discuss Gun Control

Tim Kennedy is a lot of things; former UFC fighter and Army Sniper just to name a few. Now, he has spoken out about something he clearly knows a good amount about, gun control.

Recently, the United States fell victim to another tragic mass shooting, in El Paso. On the morning of August 3rd, a lone gunman went into a Walmart store. Subsequently, he would open fire and take the live of 22 people, injuring 24 more. This resulted in the seventh most deadly mass shooting in American History.

Following the attack, Kennedy went on Fox and Friends and discussed the terrible incident. Here the Special Forces agent with controversial views, said that he believes that the cause of the problem is a lack of real masculinity.

“There’s not enough masculinity. What we are doing to our boys right now is, we’re stunting them. We are built, we are hard-wired to do incredible things — protect is one of them. When you take a boy in school and say you can’t act this way, you can’t be energetic this way, you can’t explore, you shouldn’t do dangerous things, you are messing with the hard-wire in their brains.

Everyone’s made different, but men have to be men. And boys grow up to be men. You have to allow them to do that. When you don’t, when you give them ADHD medications, nd tell them that they can’t go climb a tree, that they can’t be busy in a classroom, these are the results. You have to let boys be boys.”

Kennedy certainly brings an interesting perspective to the table. Although it is inevitable that people will disagree  Nevertheless, this is a tricky topic to talk about, and opinions vary.

Kennedy also took to Instagram where he further clarified his position.

There is no clear answer for these issues. However Tim Kennedy is a place to start.
