Video: A Reporter Tried to Get Super Bowl Champ Harrison Butker to Support Gun Control – His Response Speaks for Many

A little more than a month removed from the tragic events of the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Parade, Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker sat down with EWTN News to about his faith, his family life, gun violence, Taylor Swift and more.

Harrison Butker hasn’t been shy about sharing his faith and pro-life convictions this past season.

You can now add to his devotion and appreciation for the role that strong and responsible fathers play in culture.
During the interview Butker was asked to reflect on the aftermath of the Chief’s Super Bowl Parade, where one person was killed, and twenty other spectators were injured. The 28-year-old was asked by EWTN for his opinion on the “best way to curb gun violence.”

“I know gun violence was a big discussion, but at the end of the day, this is degenerate violence and it should not be occurring,” Butker said. “I think we need strong fathers in the home. We need men that are leading, that are setting good examples, that are teaching the young men in our society that violence is not the way to handle our disputes.”

He continued:

“It’s very unfortunate what happened. Unfortunately, many, many children were injured. A beautiful young lady was killed over someone getting offended, and turning to violence to handle that dispute. It’s so sad. I don’t think guns are the issue. I think we need strong fathers in the home that are being great examples for our youth.”

His comments about strong fathers echo, in some ways, what Eagles center Jason Kelce said during his retirement speech. In his lengthy and highly emotional press conference, Jason thanked his dad for being a great role model for him, calling a devoted father the “greatest gift” a child can have:

I am a product of my upbringing. I think one of the best things a person can be in this world is a father. A father who is present, loving, devoted, just may be the greatest gift a child could ask for in our society. And I have a damn good one.”
