Tucker Carlson: ‘They Call It Gun Control But It’s Not — It’s People Control’

Breitbart – by Jeff Poor

Thursday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson responded to calls from the left for gun control in the wake of Wednesday’s mass shooting in Parkland, FL.

The “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host theorized some Democratic politicians and “blustery charlatans in the media” had much darker aims with their calls for gun control, which he argued had little to do with public safety.  

“Let’s stop lying about this,” he said. “The calls we are hearing today for gun control have nothing to do with protecting Americans from violence. What you’re witnessing is a kind of class war. The left hates rural America, red America, gun-owning America, the America that elected Donald Trump. They hate them. Progressives are still in charge of most of the major institutions in this country, and they despise the autonomy of an armed population. They want collective punishment for the sins of a few. They seek to obliterate a core constitutional right rather than trying to mitigate its downsides. They call it gun control, but it’s not. It’s people control. For the left, voters who can’t be controlled, can’t be trusted.”

  1. What he says here is true, but if memory serves, Tucker shares a critical flaw with most “pro-gun conservatives”: appearing to acknowledge the importance of the Second Amendment on the one hand, then turning around and sucking up to the military and the police, i.e., the standing army that our Founders warned us about. These positions are inconsistent. Sadly, this kind of cognitive dissonance is nearly ubiquitous among gun owners in the US.

    Who does Tucker think would be imposing “people control” after citizen disarmament took place? It wouldn’t be the politicians themselves. It would be their servants in the standing army — the people Tucker has such a high regard for.

  2. “It was considered a duty for a citizen to own a gun in order to carry out the intent of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. As long as the citizens owned guns, the government could never become oppressive.”

  3. if you run into anyone who advocates for gun control because of school shootings, point out the flaw in their logic by telling them that it would be much more possible to end school shootings by banning schools then it would to ban guns.
