Following the shooting in Florida, the anti-gun crowd has come out of the woodwork.
They are demanding massive gun control in response to the shooting.
But with one question, Tucker Carlson shut down a gun control activist.
It’s no secret that most people who advocate for gun control have little knowledge about the guns they want to ban.
They seem to decide how dangerous a gun is based on how “scary” it looks.
Most of the time, they don’t even know the mechanics of firearms.
So when Tucker Carlson was speaking with Jumaane Williams, a New York City council member, and gun control advocate, he knew exactly how to stump him.
While Williams was talking with Tucker Carlson about gun control, Carlson easily confused him just by asking about some of the specific firearm accessories he wants to ban.
Tucker Carlson asked him why the Democrats are trying to ban “barrel shrouds.”
As soon as the question was asked, Williams attempted to deflect and ignore the question, making it clear that he doesn’t even know what a barrel shroud is, yet he wants to ban them.
A barrel shroud is a covering attached to the barrel of a firearm in order to mitigate the risk for injury from a hot gun barrel.
It doesn’t matter if Williams knows what a barrel shroud is; the issue comes when he calls for banning them without having any idea what it is.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“Jumaane Williams, a New York City council member, repeatedly asked The Daily Caller co-founder if he thought people should have unfettered access to guns — completely ignoring the specifics of actual gun legislation.
“Look, I’m not for gun killing of any kind,” Carlson said. “My only point is that legislators make laws, and they do so in the hopes they will have their intended effect, and we know from ten years of experience that an assault weapons ban doesn’t work.”
“The real question is always to you, Tucker — do you believe that we shouldn’t have unfettered access to guns,” Williams said, side-stepping the point.
Carlson tried again with a different proposed piece of gun control legislation, asking Williams, “[Democrats] are saying that guns that have something called a ‘barrel shroud’ ought to be prohibited…my question is why?”
“Why would a barrel shroud make a gun more dangerous?” Tucker questioned.
Williams again insisted that Carlson was asking the wrong questions, and accused him of throwing “red meat” to his fans on the internet.”
It seems the people screaming the loudest for gun control are usually the people who most need an education in firearms.
Democrats have proven time and time again they are illiterate when it comes to guns.
Yet they still feel the need to fight for them being banned.
Do you think that politicians should be required to know what something is before calling on it being banned?
