Legendary Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill weighed in on kids pushing gun control, and it’s clear he’s not a big fan.

O’Neill, who put multiple 5.56 rounds through Osama Bin Laden’s head, tweeted about the subject late Monday night.

“It’s really entertaining to listen to kids who know nothing about guns tell sensible gun-owners how many rounds they need to protect their families,” he opined to his nearly 100,000 followers.

I think that there’s a lot of people out there who agree with O’Neill on this issue, and it’s not just about kids pushing for gun control. It’s about everybody out in the streets pushing false narratives and false information.

You have people who honestly believe that guns are less regulated than women’s bodies, which is of course absolutely absurd. It’s not even really about the kids. We should be blaming the adults who have cultivated and facilitated this situation.

There is this theory that semi-automatic rifles and standard capacity magazines are the reasons for gun violence, which of course is not even close to being supported by facts. There is an outstanding piece about this nonsense that you can read here.

Lastly, if there’s anybody who probably has a good sense of what matters most in a gun fight it’s probably a guy from SEAL Team Six. I’m no expert, but something tells me that the guys who rock on SEAL Team Six probably have some idea of what it’s like to be in a combat situation.
