Actress Kate Hudson is making her thoughts on gun control known.
Speaking at a Business Chicks lunch in Sydney, Australia on Friday, the 38-year-old actress told at 1600-strong crowd that that she in no way supports a ban on guns in the United States because she stands by the Second Amendment, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.
“I’m a great believer in upholding the constitution. I believe in upholding our second constitution amendment,” Hudson said.
The “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days” actress then added that she would still like to see stricter gun laws put into place.
Hudson explained that her contrasting views stem from her “very interesting political background.”
“My dad Kurt [Russell] is a libertarian and mom [Goldie Hawn] is quite liberal, so I grew up with very different political views for an American household, which is actually kind of rare,” she said.

Hudson’s comments come in wake of the Valentine’s Day school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that left 17 people dead and many injured.
The actress also spoke about the Time’s Up movement and explained that she has her own experiences and so does her mother, Goldie Hawn.
“I’ve got so many stories. I’ve struggled. Do I tell my story? Does it matter if I tell?” she said. “I’m talking to my mum, that generation, it’s like the stories are endless, just endless.”
