We have to keep guns away from bad guys. It’s about “commonsense gun laws.” Why should everyone be able to freely buy automatic weapons?
On today’s show, Glenn and Stu talked about the ongoing gun control debate. Watch the clip (above) to hear their responses to some of the most common anti-gun talking points as they point out these key problems with the left’s arguments.
Many liberals trying to debate this issue don’t understand guns or realize what regulations are already in place.
“It’s hard to have a debate on this topic when the overwhelming majority of people discussing it don’t have basic knowledge on the topic,” Stu said.
Guns are part of American culture.
People who didn’t grow up around guns simply don’t understand how why Americans want to arm themselves to feel safe.
“It is uniquely American … and you can’t just dismiss that,” Glenn said.
Constitutional rights should only be infringed upon when absolutely necessary.
Second Amendment rights are constitutionally protected, so you can only keep someone from that basic right with due process and with evidence that they will misuse it. Stu compared it to our right in the justice system to be innocent until proven guilty.
