Sports Illustrated swimsuit model defends Second Amendment: How will we protect ourselves?

Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit models are obviously known for their beauty, but one in particular is also getting attention for her strong defense of the Second Amendment.

Featured in the magazine for the last three years, model Hannah Ferguson is quite comfortable around guns. “Growing up, at a pretty early age we learned to shoot,” Ferguson told FOX411. “They started us with pellet guns.”

Her father was a sniper in the Marines and her mother was a Marine drill instructor, so the 23-year-old Texan model has a soft spot for the military.

Ferguson believes guns are feared because of a lack of knowledge.

“I feel like it’s good to have gun knowledge. I feel like a lot of people are scared of guns,” she said. “They think they’re bad and they really don’t know anything about it.”

Though she does not favor gun control in general, she does think “maybe people should be tested or looked into more to see if they’re mentally unstable” prior to purchasing  firearms, reported Fox.

“I don’t think they should be taken away from people because any bad person who wants to find a gun is going to find a way to get it and then what?” she said. “We don’t have a way to protect ourselves? I feel like people should get more knowledge and understanding.”
