Tucker Carlson shuts down liberals’ lying in wait gun argument with ease; it only takes one question …

Tucker Carlson questioned the logic and the motives of gun control advocates who are rushing to politicize the massacre in Las Vegas.

“We don’t even know the basic answers to the questions of why this happened,” Carlson began the segment on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Monday, speaking with Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar about the tragic attack Sunday.

Suspected gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas Sunday night, killing 59 people and injuring over 500 as he fired at them from his hotel room window on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino before killing himself.

“Does it seems a little premature to you to wade right into a complex debate like gun control within hours of this happening?” Carlson asked Cuellar.

“Absolutely, I think we need to wait,” the Texas Democrat who received an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association, agreed. “Let the first responders, let the law enforcement find out exactly what happened then we can have another debate.”

Deadly attacks can occur using weapons other than guns, Cuellar contended, from an airplane to a truck to a knife. The congressman noted that he grew up on a ranch and was surrounded by guns at a young age.

“I think there are some people who believe in gun control — I don’t believe in gun control. I think you can have responsible people do the right thing with a gun but unfortunately sometimes you get a situation like this that it’s hard to explain but just taking guns away from everybody is not going to solve the issue.”

“Why do people keep saying that? Can you think of a single place in the United States that has become safe because of gun control?” Carlson asked.

“No,” Cuellar replied simply.

“Right,” Carlson agreed. “I don’t think anyone else can think of one either so why do people keep proposing it?”

Cuellar explained that “there are some people that just feel that guns are the problem but I think it’s a little bit more complicated than that,” noting that he is personally a supporter of the Second Amendment.

Carlson pointed out that mass shootings were not a “feature of American life” when the congressman was growing up.

“When people come out immediately after an event like this without knowing any of the facts, it suggests to the rest of us that they’ve been kind of waiting for an opportunity to push a pre-exiting agenda on the country,” Carlson said, later adding that he hoped that press was not adding to or being “part of the problem.”
