Fox & Friends Host on March for Our Lives: Don’t Need ‘Lesson on the 2nd Amendment from a 16-Year-Old’


Fox & Friends this morning covered the March for Our Lives across the nation yesterday, criticizing some of the remarks by students and activists.

Ed Henry said the other side of the debate was drowned out and noted some signs going after Marco Rubio, while Abby Huntsman said people should be able to talk about guns “in a rational way” without going to extremes.

Pete Hegseth said he doesn’t think young people should be “lecturing” anyone else on the Second Amendment:

“I feel for these kids from Parkland high school. They’ve obviously been affected. They have a right to speak out and they should. But forgive me if I don’t want a lesson on the Second Amendment on a 16-year-old. Forgive me if I don’t want to watch a 9-year-old tell me that her dream is a world without guns. My world––I want a world without Islamists! I wish that was true too. It’s just not the case. The reality is the Second Amendment’s not about hunting, it’s not about self-defense only, it’s about free people and checks on a tyrannical government… they shouldn’t be giving me lessons on the Second Amendment, they should be in civics class.”

Hegseth said after watching marches from yesterday, he decided to donate to the NRA this morning.

He also said marchers should be “thanking President Trump” for actions he’s taken on gun violence.
