In the wake of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, liberals are demanding gun control. Tucker Carlson weighed in on their complaints and shut down their tired argument, exposing the left’s real agenda. Carlson called their “gun control” what it really is, and you don’t want to miss this.
Americans of all stripes are heart-broken over this shooting. We mourning with families who lost children and loved ones. Tragedies like this should never happen in the United States — least of all at a school. Yet, they happen all too often. Clearly, something is wrong in our country — something that needs to be solved.
Liberals will have you believe it is the Second Amendment’s fault. This killer used a gun, right? So, access to guns is the problem. Banning these weapons — or making it so hard people can’t get them — is the solution. That’s the oversimplified, brain-dead answer Democrats continue to push. But, it ignores the real reasons shootings happen.
Make no mistake, liberals know gun control doesn’t work. The statistics prove that time and again. But, there is a reason they keep pushing the idea. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson condemned liberals who advocate eroding the Second Amendment. In no uncertain terms, he called their agenda what it is. It’s not gun control, but people control.
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.”
Tucker laid out some very real, very sad reasons for why we are seeing so many mass shootings in America. And, it has nothing to do with guns. Tucker explained how gun ownership in America has gone down over the last 35 years, yet shootings have only increased. Among the possible reasons for this terrible trend, Tucker lists the breakdown of nuclear families, an increase in psychiatric medications, and the decline of men.
We also cannot forget the shocking spiritual decline in our country. That includes the removal of God from our schools.
But, what Tucker really focuses on is the insidious agenda by Democrats. You see, they don’t care about the freedoms of Americans. They don’t even care if we are successful or prosperous. That’s why they neglect us in order to help illegal immigrants. And, that’s why they regularly attack free speech, religion, and gun ownership.
The left wants a dictatorship. They want to transform America into a Socialist state, with them in control, of course. In order to do that, they need to suppress American citizens. We deserve and demand our individual liberty. That includes the freedom to worship, speak, and protect ourselves. Liberals despise that. They want us to blindly obey them, not our God or our conscience.
Gun control is just another step towards making America a Socialist state. As Tucker said, it’s about controlling us, not guns. We know that mass shootings happen in places that already ban guns, like schools, clubs, and restaurants. The people are defenceless. More gun control will lead to more situations like that. Liberals aren’t stupid. They know this. They use these tragedies to move America closer to their Socialist view.
Tucker Carlson is right in saying that liberals control too much of our society. We may have elected President Donald Trump to the White House, but toxic Socialists control our movies, TV, tech industry, colleges, and major institutions. They will not stop until they eradicate conservative views and our ways of life. Our only solution is to expose their schemes and never let go of our rights.
