Duck Dynasty stars Phil and Si Robertson believe gun control is not what America needs. Rather, it's sin control and self control that our nation lacks.
“It ain’t gun control we need, it’s sin control,” Si told Men’s Journal.
“Self-control,” corrected elder brother, Phil, the family patriarch.
The brothers and Phil’s sons, Jase, Jep and Willie Robertson are hoping to use their newfound fame to spread the gospel of religion and political conservatism.
"We're trying to infuse a little good into a culture in which gentleness, patience, kindness, self-control, love, joy and peace have become abnormal," Phil said.
Much of the appeal of the show, which drew a network record 11.8 million viewers for its fourth season premiere, surrounds the family's silly antics.
Their Christian values and emphasis on family are clearly present, however, and the family is even more overt about its faith outside of the show.
The Robertsons regularly preach at their West Monroe, La., church and give speeches in which they are proud and unabashed regarding their views.
Willie Robertson revealed on Fox News a month later that GOP leaders had been courting him for a political run, based on the clan’s belief system.
He hasn't taken them up on it so far, but he wouldn't encounter much opposition from his father if he did decide to go that route and seek political office.
"I go out into America and I am literally navigating a minefield. Godliness has become abnormal,” Phil Robertson, 67, lamented to Men's Journal.
