Recent statements made by Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Hannah Ferguson has lit a blaze across the internet that has many gun-grabbers flipping their lid.
According To Fox411:
Hannah Ferguson is quite the shot. The model, who has appeared in Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition for the last three years, was taught by her parents. Her father was a sniper in the Marines while her mother was a Marine drill instructor.
“Growing up, at a pretty early age we learned to shoot,” she told FOX411. “They started us with pellet guns.”
Having both her parents and a brother who joined the Marines means the military holds a special place in her heart.
“I have a different outlook than most people,” the 23-year-old said. “I actually want to get involved with charities related to the military because I just have a special thing in my heart for all the soldiers and their families.”
Ferguson also feels like guns are sometimes misunderstood.
“I feel like it’s good to have gun knowledge. I feel like a lot of people are scared of guns,” she explained. “They think they’re bad and they really don’t know anything about it.”
The Texan born beauty believes there should be some kind of gun control, “maybe people should be tested or looked into more to see if they’re mentally unstable” before they’re allowed to purchase a firearm.
“I don’t think they should be taken away from people because any bad person who wants to find a gun is going to find a way to get it and then what?” she asked. “We don’t have a way to protect ourselves? I feel like people should get more knowledge and understanding.”
Beauty and brains! Hopefully this does not hurt her career because as we all know, if you disagree with the beliefs of the fashion and entertainment industries it generally doesn’t work out very well.
