Some of her followers disagreed with her viewpoint.
The former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star took to Twitter to convey her sentiments by tweeting a photo with a message that reads: “After 9-11 we didn’t ban planes. We secured the cockpits. Secure the schools.”
“Youd rather have schools look like prisons than reforming gun laws.. uhm ok. That wont traumatize the kids, to have constant reminders that adults have failed them,” one user wrote.
“Kelly, I suggest you do some reading. 911 changed air travel in a dramatic way like finally taking weapons away from passengers. For example: Passengers used to be able to carry knives,” another user replied.
A third user even posted a list of countries with a history of school shootings, saying, “The difference between these countries and the US, is they don’t sell their citizens weapons of war.”
“After 9-11 (since you thought you did something) Homeland Security was formed, and security measures were heightened in airports.”
After receiving a number of replies, the reality star soon clarified her earlier statement, stating, “I NEVER said we shouldn’t have STRICTER gun laws. I believe we should do a BETTER job of keeping WEAPONS out of the hands of CRIMINALS & the MENTALLY ill.”
“In the meantime, while these people HAVE guns & CAN STILL BUY THEM, we need to BETTER PROTECT OUR KIDS!!!.”
As reported by Page Six, Salvador Ramos, 18, shot and murdered 19 students and two instructors at Robb Elementary School, as well as injuring another 17 people.

Relevancy of this in Orange County is minimal. Focus on your community which lives vastly different than the rest of the country. https://t.co/JwCsAri8By— LLRubMyBean (@rubmybean) May 28, 2022
