Herschel Walker, a former football star who recently won the Republican nomination for the 2022 United States Senate election in Georgia, sparked controversy after he suggested a rather nonsensical solution to gun violence.

Walker's remarks came as the nationwide debate on gun control measures reignited following a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

Speaking about the murders of 19 children and two teachers, Walker noted "Cain killed Abel," referring to the story about the conflict that erupted between the first two sons of Adam and Eve after they were expelled from the Garden of Eden in the biblical book of Genesis.

He went on to suggest there should be "a department that can look at young men that’s looking at women that looking at social media" and, oddly for a Republican, said he wanted to put money in the “mental health field” instead of “departments that want to take away your rights.”

Perhaps even more incomprehensibly, Walker said he likes to "see it and everything and stuff" when asked by reporters if he believes there should be stronger gun control laws in the wake of the shooting.

Walker's remarks left many dumbfounded, especially because he recently won his Republican Senate primary as the best option for the GOP for Congress.




Walker is known for making head-scratching remarks.

Last month, Walker was widely mocked on social media after he claimed that Democratic President Joe Biden's administration “decided that they were going to give up our energy."

Walker continued to offer some incomprehensible energy policy advice, and went on to say that the Biden administration "started the whole downfall" because the United States is not "energy dependent anymore."

Claiming that the Biden administration has "blamed everyone else except themselves," he referred to the Michael Jackson song "The Man in the Mirror," saying that "you gotta look at yourself to know what's going on."
