Kennedy VP Pick Backs Second Amendment, Opposes Biden Gun Control Push

In the recent push for tougher gun control policies by the Biden-Harris campaign, the independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s vice presidential nominee, Nicole Shanahan, affirmed her support for the Second Amendment. During an interview, Shanahan emphasized the importance of preserving the Second Amendment and stressed the need to address the root causes of gun violence, such as mental health issues.

Shanahan expressed her belief that stripping people of their liberties will not lead to a better future and emphasized the need to focus on mental health rather than restricting freedoms. She asserted that her perspective on preserving liberties makes her progressive in her thinking, despite appearing less liberal.

These comments from Shanahan come in contrast to the gun control event held by President Joe Biden, where he advocated for tighter firearms restrictions. Biden highlighted the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act as a step toward reducing gun violence and called for the reinstatement of a ’90s-era ban on “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines. 


Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has also spoken out against the Democratic Party’s stance on gun control, attributing the increase in gun violence to the use of antidepressants and violent video games. He emphasized the need to address these factors and stated that there was a time before their introduction when such incidents were not prevalent in American or human history.

In response to the Biden-Harris campaign’s push for tighter gun control policies, Shanahan and Kennedy are advocating for a focus on mental health and preserving the Second Amendment as essential elements in addressing gun violence.
