Kirsters Baish| Conservative Fox News host Tucker Carlson is generally pretty vocal about his stance on everything political. This time, he’s ticked off for a really good reason. Carlson is someone who understands that the way the left is trying to play the gun control card is truly pathetic and entirely the wrong way to go about things. Every single time there is a shooting in our country, the left uses it as an opportunity to take advantage of tragedy to push their political agenda which includes disarming law-abiding citizens.
Carlson responded on Thursday to the leftist call for gun control after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, saying “Let’s stop lying about this,” on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
The Fox News host went on, “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.”
It’s sickening how right on Carlson is with his statement. Progressives are simply out to attack anyone who remotely resembles a Trump supporter. Anyone who owns guns or supports the right to own guns is under fire from the left.
Carlson went on to explain that the left wants punishment for all because of what a few people have done. He stated, “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.”
Then Carlson said something that really drove the point home. Carlson explained, “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.”

Leftists love to claim that people like Carlson are conspiracy theorists, however the truth is that after every single shooting it seems like liberals immediately call for gun control. They push totally false “facts” to sway people in their direction. The fact that the left wants to take away Americans’ guns isn’t an issue of gun control at all. It really is an issue of “people control” as Carlson calls it.
