Speaking at a Business Chicks lunch in Sydney to a 1600-person crowd, Hudson said though she acknowledges gun laws should be stricter, they should not be abolished altogether.
“I’m a great believer in upholding the constitution … I believe in upholding our second constitution amendment [the right of the people to keep and bear arms],” the 38-year-old mother of two said, according to Fairfax.
She went to add her conflicted views stem from her “very interesting political background”, growing up as the child of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.
“My dad Kurt is a libertarian and mum is quite liberal, so I grew up with very different political views for an American household, which is actually kind of rare,” she said.
“They are polar opposites. All of us kids ended up somewhere in the middle.”
Hudson’s thoughts come in the wake of one of the most lively debates about gun control in US history.
