Tucker Carlson does not believe guns are the reason for mass shootings in America. In a segment on Tucker Carlson Tonight, he stated: “The percentage of American households with firearms has dropped dramatically over the past 35 years, meanwhile, the number of mass shootings has risen. If you’re over 40, you did not grow up in a country like this. So the question is, what happened? It could be a lot of things…”
According to Carlson, possible contributing factors include: More Americans are taking psychiatric medications; Life online causes alienation and depression; The collapse of the nuclear family – “fatherlessness is one feature common to many mass shooters.”
What about men more broadly? As a group, men are not thriving in this country right now. Ignore the propaganda, and there’s a lot of it – and instead, look at the numbers. Men kill themselves more; graduate less; and of course commit pretty much 100 per cent of mass shootings. It’s a disaster, which for some reason, our elites persist in ignoring.
While Carlson admits there is not enough evidence to suggest any of these factors are the primary cause of mass shootings, he does explain that this “vital conversation is drowned out and made impossible by mindless screeching about gun control…”
They aren’t trying to solve the problem. Their aims are darker than that. Press a little bit and you’ll see it… The calls you’re hearing today for gun control have nothing to do with protecting Americans from violence. What you’re witnessing is a kind of class war… They call it gun control, but it’s not. It’s people control. For the Left, voters who can’t be controlled can’t be trusted.
