Actor Jon Voight has reacted to the fatal shooting at a school in Uvalde, Texas, suggesting Americans should undergo “proper testing” for gun ownership.
On May 28, 2022, four days after the heinous attack on Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Voight posted a video on Twitter and said:
It’s not about left right, guns without guns, it’s about brains not working, it’s about mental. It is not about healthy human beings serving the country with arms to bear or even this constitution’s right to bear arms. It is a right to use arms wisely to defend one’s safety, we must not allow mental illness to deprive us of our right to bear arms.
Voight then spoke of those killed by the shooter, saying, “These innocent souls… are children of God. I must remind all of us that God will bring these angels home.
The Oscar-winning actress then posted a second video, in which he said, “We must identify each individual for their credentials for their mental capacity to bear arms. There should be proper qualifications for owning firearms and proper testing. One should only own a firearm if he is qualified and educated.
