Meghan McCain, conservative co-host on "The View," defended the Second Amendment during Monday's airing of the show, which analyzed Friday's deadly Santa Fe High School mass killing.
What did she say?
The co-hosts brought up the latest high school massacre and discussed musician's Kelly Clarkson's Sunday night comments at the Billboard Awards, which saw the artist call for gun control, as well as what the word "change" actually means.
McCain said, "We’ve had this conversation before and we’re always talking about gun control. We said before, OK — AR-15s, all semi-assault rifles, if they are banned, this won’t happen. That’s obviously not accurate in this case."
"He had a pipe bomb, a molotov cocktail and a carbon dioxide device, which, by the way, are things you can make in your house," she added.
The alleged killer reportedly used a revolver and a shotgun during Friday's massacre, which took the lives of at least 10 people.
McCain also took a thinly veiled shot at Clarkson's passionate plea for gun control.
"Kelly Clarkson, I admire anyone who wants to go out and take a platform and speak on this issue but, for me, I was also, like, 'What does change mean to you?'" McCain asked. "Because she said, 'I’m a proud gun owner, I have a concealed handgun license,' in 2012 she says she has nine guns — more than me, which is a thing — and sleeps with a Colt 45."
McCain went on to wonder if Clarkson — or, as she said, "someone like that" — is "now for repealing the Second Amendment."
What did McCain say about mental illness?
Later during the panel discussion, McCain addressed mental illness.
"I know we don't want to talk about mental illness," she admitted, and went on to ask what it is about young males who can't deal with female rejection.
"What is it about young boys in our culture who are rejected by girls," she asked, "and then your only option that you think is to somehow go and commit a massacre at your school against that girl?"
