Tucker Carlson has had no shortage of leftist nuts on his Tucker Carlson Tonight program on Fox News. He just added to that list by tackling a gun confiscation advocate head on and chiding him over the fact that Seattle’s gun tax ended up totally failing and did nothing to lower gun violence.
Since 2015, Seattle has charged $25 for each firearm and $.05 for every ammunition round as part of the “gun violence tax.” When leftist Mark Glaze tried to argue that the tax actually worked, Carlson shut him down.
Glaze tried to claim that the law was meant to fund gun control studies and not to stop violence. Carlson corrected him, saying, “I’m merely noting the obvious, which is the gun tax didn’t make the city any safer. What’s the point of any of this…if it doesn’t make the city any safer? That’s the whole point. Right?”
Mark tried to change the subject to his plan to ban high-capacity, semi-automatic rifles, claiming that gang members use them “most often.” Corrected Tucker, “But your numbers are just wrong. Actually, a relatively small percentage of murders in this country are committed with rifles of any kind. They’re almost all committed with handguns. So I know these guns may look scary, and they send you guys into a frenzy because they’re terrified-looking, but they don’t actually drive the problems. So again, you’re wrong.”
Glaze then suggested that America run a gun buy back program, just like Australia, and Tucker retorted, “That’s not true, that’s not true. They didn’t buy them back. They confiscated them by force. You had no option. It wasn’t voluntary. If you tried that in this country, you would have a civil war in about 10 minutes. Is that the plan? To take people’s guns by force?” Are you glad Tucker corrected this idiot? Watch below:
