"It ain’t gun control we need, it’s sin control,” Si Robertson said.
In a wide-ranging interview with Men’s Journal, the man known as Uncle Si described how he used to be a "sinner” during his younger days when he was drafted into the Army and heading off to Vietnam.
"I kept a fifth of whiskey in my pocket everywhere I went,” he said. "I tried dope one time, okay, like marijuana, but why would you smoke something that makes you feel 100 years old? So, drugs wasn’t it for me. In my mind, it was alcohol and whoring around.”
Robertson said he was worried about the pedestal the family has been put on since the reality show took off.
"Look, I worry that people put us on a pedestal now,” he told Men’s Journal. "We’re human beings. We make mistakes just like everybody else.”
