STUART VARNEY (HOST): Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger – he says he supports raising the minimum age for a gun purchase. Listen to this, Lisa. Roll it.
REP. ADAM KINZINGER (R-IL): I think that raising the age of gun purchase to 21 is a no-brainer. We know that the human brain develops and matures a lot between the age of 18 to 21. We just raised, without so much as a blink, the age of purchasing cigarettes federally to 21. I think we need to get there eventually.
VARNEY: Lisa, what do you think of raising the minimum age to 21, and do you think that the rest of the Republican Party would get behind it?
LISA BOOTHE (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Well, I say no, and I hope not, and Adam Kinzinger is not much different than Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer these days. I mean look, why can an 18-year-old go and vote, why can an 18-year-old go to war, but can't own a firearm when they come home? I mean, you look at the left today, they believe a 13-year-old can consent and is mature enough to get a double mastectomy, so I think an 18-year-old is mature enough to own a firearm. And look, this conversation – this isn't even about a specific weapon like the AR-15 for the left either, it's about all guns. Joe Biden the other day talking about a handgun, look at what is happening in Canada where Trudeau is trying to ban the sale of handguns there. And look, you know, we talked about freedom and why it came to Florida – our Founding Fathers set up a system of checks and balances because they believed in freedom, but they also gave us the Second Amendment, and the Second Amendment is a safeguard against tyranny even here at home. You can go from Cuba, to Afghanistan with the Taliban, and authoritarian regimes take guns from their citizens because a disarmed population is easier to control. And if anyone was paying attention during COVID, the left wants to control us.
