Megyn Kelly slammed calls for gun control following Monday’s mass shooting at a Nashville school that left six people, including three children, dead.
“Three 9-year-olds were shot down yesterday by one sick person in addition to the three school administrators ,” Kelly said during Tuesday’s episode of her SiriusXM podcast.
“There’s something wrong with our society and I for one am f–king sick of the knee-jerk — ‘It’s the guns. Get the guns,’” Kelly said.
“We have 330 million guns, maybe over 400 million by some counts in America.”
She continued: “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.”
Kelly said that instead of focusing on guns, people should “figure out what made this person crack.”
“But we go through this every time,” she said.
“We try to figure out the issues that led to this person to do it or that person to do it, and then we change nothing. Okay?”
“We change nothing.”
Kelly said the solution may be to “make it easier to civilly commit people” to institutions, particularly those who are “showing signs, red flags, that they may be the next school shooter.”
The shooter has been identified as 28-year-old Audrey Hale.
According to authorities, Hale stormed into the Covenant School, a Presbyterian private school in Nashville , and opened fire, killing three adults and three children.
Police who responded fatally shot Hale.
Investigators said they found a stockpile of guns as well as a manifesto at Hale’s home in Nashville. The contents of the manifesto have yet to be revealed.
Authorities believe that Hale, a former student at Covenant , planned the attack as well as others.
