Tucker Carlson Says Gun Control Is About Controlling Americans

(RoyalPatriot.com )- Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson hit out at the Democrats on his show this week, describing their efforts to roll back the Second Amendment and implement new gun control measures as an effort to control the American people.

“Gun control is not about guns. Gun Control is about who controls America,” he said. “Is it the population as in a democracy? Or does all control go to a small group of authoritarians as in oligarchy? Those are the stakes in the gun control debate. It’s not about guns, it’s about who runs the country. So with that in mind, Joe Biden’s speech calling for more gun control should make you uncomfortable. Almost nothing Biden said was true.”

Carlson used the Democratic Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot as an example of how Democrats are lying about gun control, referring to her claim that gun control would solve her city’s violent crime and gun crime crisis.

The Fox News anchor explained how Chicago’s own data proves that most violent crimes in the city were committed with a gun that was bought in the state, also proving Lightfoot wrong when she says that the lax gun laws in states surrounding Chicago were to blame for her city’s violence.

It’s a claim Lightfoot has made repeatedly over the years, as violent crime in Chicago continues to skyrocket.

“ Most violent crimes in Illinois were committed with gun bought in the state. According to Chicago police in 2018, 2019, authorities encountered a grand total of — 4 people in the whole city with rifles,” Carlson said.

In the same period, he added, authorities encountered 44 people who were armed with revolvers, 15 using chemical weapons, and 32 “wielding their feet in a violent manner.”

Carlson added that the most recent murder report from the city was taken back in 2011, and according to that report, only one rifle was used in homicide across the entire city.

“And that is what they want to take away. Why? Because you own it, not the criminals,” he added.

The comments come after President Joe Biden announced a series of executive actions to stop Americans from owning AR-15 and so-called “assault weapons.” Among the executive actions was an instruction for the Department of Justice to draft legislation for consideration by the states.

Democrats in Congress are also preparing new legislation designed to implement President Joe Biden’s campaign promises to tax lawful gun owners.
