Carlson: It’s Not Gun Control, It’s People Control


In a way only Tucker Carlson can, he went on the offensive against these misguided liberal loons calling, even demanding, for absolute gun control in the wake of the Florida School shooting.

“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.”

Trump at least sees the forest for the trees and condemns the attack.

“No child, no teacher should ever be in danger in an American school,” Trump said in the Diplomatic Room of the White House. “No parent should ever have to fear for their sons and daughters when they kiss them goodbye in the morning.”

“It is not enough to simply take actions that make us feel like we are making a difference,” Trump said. “We must actually make that difference.”

“We must also work together to create a culture in our country that embraces the dignity of life that creates deep and meaningful human connections and that turns classmates and colleagues into friends and neighbors,” he said.

“I want you to know that you are never alone and you never will be,” he said. “You have people who care about you, who love you, and who will do anything at all to protect you. If you need help, turn to a teacher, a family member, a local police officer, or a faith leader. Answer hate with love. Answer cruelty with kindness.”
