Tucker Carlson debunks the drive to demonize "assault weapons"

 

In a pithy five-minute segment, Tucker Carlson points out the fallacies and lies of the anti-gun drive currently under way in Congress, pushed by the Biden administration.  Pay particular attention to the actual crime figures he discusses from 2m.33s. onwards.



That's the way it is - but you'd never know it, to listen to most politicians or to read or watch the mainstream news media.  They're all "being economical with the truth", to put it mildly.

I strongly suggest that if you have anti-gun friends or relatives, it might be a good thing to encourage them to watch Tucker Carlson's segment.  Many of them won't - they don't want to be confused with the facts.  Nevertheless, it might make the more honest and approachable of them think twice about their position.

When people don't want to be rational and just want to be emotional all the facts and rational arguments in the world won't change a thing. There is a different form of logic that does however. My father applied it when very young I tried the crying tantrum. His logic went thus, "If you don't stop crying I'll give you something to cry about." Long time ago and if I tested that logic I only did so once.

Apply that same logic to gun control. "If you don't stop being afraid of something that isn't happening it WILL happen." They also will only test that logic once.

The scary part now is the Supreme Court.
