In spite of all the tragedies and leftists, there still really are beautiful moments in this world. Like this one – where Tucker Carlson completely obliterates Dan Gross. Dan Gross is the President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, for those who don’t know. He eagerly backs Obama’s
arbitrary and all-out “assault weapons” ban. Tucker Carlson? He’s the guy who melts the face off of Dan Gross of the Brady Campaign.
The best part is he basically did it by simply asking two questions. That’s two questions. In one fell swoop he unravels the entire anti-gun premise on which Dan’s organization stands.
TUCKER: Before we get started, let’s define: what’s an assault weapon?
GROSS: I’m not here to define what an assault weapon is.
Totally because you just don’t want to. Not because you don’t actually know what an assault weapon is. Right, Dan?
As any good host should, Tucker asks Gross to clarify what it is that leftists want banned right off the bat. Those with functioning brains call it “defining your terms.” That way everyone can be on the same page and understand what the hell it is that you really want. Kind of a key part to their argument, yes? Dan Gross refused to do even that. There are two possible reasons why: either he can’t, or he doesn’t want to. Neither option is peachy, seeing how he’s President of an anti-gun movement. It’s literally his job to talk about this stuff. That is what he’s paid to do.
TUCKER: The legislation proposed would prevent people on the no-fly list from buying firearms. So they would be stripped of a constitutional right without due process. Do you think it’s fair for the US Government to punish people who haven’t been proved to have committed wrong doing?
GROSS: So are you saying there shouldn’t be a no-fly list?
TUCKER: That’s a separate argument, but since you asked? If we don’t think you’re trusted to fly, if we think you’re so dangerous that you can’t get onto an airplane, what the hell are you doing living in my neighborhood? You should be in jail, or you should be deported.
Here’s the thing: leftists want to pass an assault weapons ban, yet they can’t tell you what an assault weapon is. Also, they think they shouldn’t have to define it anyway. It’s the scary boom stick. Usually black. No more details necessary. Instead just say “assault weapon” a lot and don’t do interviews with people who call you out on it.
Gun control zealots: can’t define the guns they want to ban and don’t understand our justice system. By the way, give them all your guns, money and power.
