Fox News contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano spent Thursday advocating for more guns to stop mass murders such as the tragic high school shooting that killed 17 this week at a high school in Parkland, Florida.
Napolitano believes “superior firepower” is the answer. He weighed in on the discussion when the panel brought up background checks and how the Florida killer was able to buy an AR-15 legally.
“Suggesting this is a mental health issue is a diversion,” Napolitano said to show host Bret Baier. “It’s an issue of not enough superior firepower to stop these killers. If he’s crazy, he’s going to find a way to kill. If he’s irrational and wants to kill, he will find a way to kill.”
Napolitano also appeared on Fox Business’ Stuart Varney program, “Varney & Co.,” and continued to advocate for more guns in schools.
“You can’t keep a lunatic from wanting to kill somebody,” Napolitano said. “The only way to stop this is by superior fire power.”
On the panel, Baier jumped in to say that there are 300 million guns in America. Napolitano responded that there aren’t guns in schools, saying, “They’re like a sitting duck.”
A former student at the high school, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, is accused of killing 17 people with the semi-automatic firearm after he entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
