Megyn Kelly Delivers Fiery Monologue in Wake of Shooting: ‘NRA is Too Powerful,’ Politicians ‘Too Weak’

Megyn Kelly delivered a fiery speech during the lead segment of Megyn Kelly Today Thursday in the wake of the Parkland, FL school shooting.

“There have been at least 12 — at least 12 — school shootings in America so far in 2018,” Kelly said. “It’s February 15th. We’re averaging one just about every three or four days. How we doing, America? Everyone okay with that?”

Before a perfectly quiet studio audience, Kelly launched into a five-minute tirade against just about everyone and everything over the nation’s failure to prevent the latest deadly mass-shooting.

“I don’t believe in a single one of these politicians,” Kelly said. “I don’t believe any of them have the courage it takes to actually push through [gun] reform.”

She added, “No gun reforms are getting through. They’re not. And most of the ones that will be proposed in the wake of this shooting will be utterly meaningless and wouldn’t have even arguably prevented this killing. The NRA is too powerful. Our politicians are too weak. And the guns are too ubiquitous.”

But Kelly didn’t let the public off the hook either.

“Let’s face it. It’s not all on [politicians],” she said. “Because we, the people, are the ones who hire and fire these politicians. So if we don’t get serious, neither will they.”
