Outspoken radio icon Howard Stern destroyed liberals’ call for gun control today on his radio show by using a chilling analogy.
Stern’s response about gun control came after the Orlando Islamic terrorist attack, where a radical jihadist walked into a Florida gay night club and shot about 100 people, leaving at least 49 dead.
“I’m so upset about Orlando and what went down,” Stern said, “but I can’t believe these people would come out afterward and their answer to Orlando is to take away guns from the public. It’s f***ing mindblowing to me.”
Stern used a detailed story of sheep and wolves to explain his analogical reasoning.
“Now, let’s say I walked up literally to a sheep herd, and they know that every night the wolves pick off a couple of them,” Stern said. “What if I went up to the sheep and I said, ‘You wanna have a shot at the wolves? I’m gonna give you a pistol. You can actually even the playing field with these wolves whose fangs are out — you could shoot them and save your family.'”
Then, taking on the role of the passive sheep, Stern said “Well, baaaa. We’re not gonna do that. We don’t want to fight baaaack. He didn’t hurt uuuus. He only hurt the family down the streeet. And the shepherd will protect us, the sheepdogs are out there, they’ll protect us.”
“Well, the sheepdogs are protecting you, but some of them can’t be with you all day,” Stern said in a hypothetical reply. “There’s not a sheepdog for every citizen, and a wolf is still eating one of you every night.”
Stern continued to use the story-line to explain what a disastrously bad idea it is to take guns away from Americans during a time of war.
“Oh, we’ve got an answer to all the terrorism, all these bad wolves that are coming after us,” Stern said. “We’ll hand in all our guns. We’re gonna hand ‘em in. Baaaa. You know who’ll protect us? The government. Or the police. Baaaa.”
“I’m not for taking away people’s rights. I’m not,” Stern wrapped up the segment. “I think the answer doesn’t lie in taking any kind of ability of the sheep to protect themselves from the wolves. I really don’t. I wish it was that simple.”
