The proverbial warning that those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it appears to be the message from Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe when it comes to the Democrats’ call for so-called common-sense gun regulations.
The end game for liberals is to exert more authoritarianism, Boothe insisted.
In a panel discussion on the Fox News Channel in the video clip embedded above, Boothe implied that she hoped gun rights supporters don’t water down their support for the Second Amendment in the aftermath of the horrific mass shooting at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
Anchoring “The Big Sunday Show,” Alicia Acuna, who said she was also covering the National Rifle Association convention in Houston, implied that she was getting a sense from attendees that there might be room for compromise on additional gun laws.
“Look at the gun control equation. It’s not about the guns, in my opinion, to the left. It is about the control aspect,” Boothe replied.
“I believe that Democrats want to take away guns from law-abiding [citizens] for the same reason that communist regimes and the Taliban want to take guns away from citizens. And that’s to control,” Boothe declared. “A disarmed population is easier to control.”
“I’m sorry; you had to have been asleep during COVID if you didn’t see the left’s desire to control the country. So no, I don’t think there is any room on the Second Amendment. I personally would not give any ground on that issue,” she continued.
“And what’s the argument for the left? That only the police should be left with guns? That did not work out here. That didn’t work out during the George Floyd riots when law-abiding citizens, Americans, had to take it upon themselves to defend their own lives, defend their communities, defend their businesses, as rioters tried to burn down their cities and burn down neighborhoods. I hope that the Republicans don’t give up any ground on the Second Amendment issue, personally,” Boothe said.
Uvalde cops stand accused of loitering outside the school for 45 minutes or more rather than entering the building to rescue the kids from the gunman. The U.S. Department of Justice is launching a review of the police response.
At the beginning of the segment, Fox News contributor Tyrus asserted that “the investigation needs to be done by professionals looking to improve, not politicians looking to use it to get votes.”
To punctuate the discussion, Fox News contributor and U.S. Marine Joey Jones cautioned that gun control advocacy groups offer words that are “sweet as honey” and that are based on emotion rather than logic or knowledge.
“I have nothing against changing our gun laws to make us safer in an honest conversation that convinces me that those changes make us safer. Nothing on the table shows that outside of, let’s be honest, confiscation and eradication, and I don’t think that’s where half of Americans are, much less most,” he said, in part.
