WATCH: Taya Kyle Speaks Out After Challenging Obama Face-to-Face on Gun Laws
Taya Kyle delivered a candid challenge to President Obama at a town hall on gun control.
“We want to think that we can make a law and people will follow it,” Kyle told the president.
“By the very nature of looking at the people who hurt our loved ones here, I don’t know that any of them would have been stopped by a background check.”
Kyle, the widow of American sniper Chris Kyle, joined “Fox and Friends” this morning to speak out about the dramatic moment.
There can often be misconceptions about what gun lobbyists are fighting for, she said.
“When you talk about pulling away people’s freedoms, it’s not quite as simple as it sounds,” said Kyle.
It’s not just about background checks, she added. “It’s not just that. It’s the idea that one man would say, ‘I know what’s best for everyone else.’ And by executive action, make a new law.”
Kyle said that President Obama “is very effective in making people feel like it’s all going to be okay.”
But, “is anything going to change from it?” she said.
“No, I don’t think so.”
