Fox News Host: People in Australia ‘Have No Freedom’ Because Hate Speech and Guns Are Regulated
Fox News delivered a gem on Sunday. Hosts of Fox and Friends claimed that Australia lacked freedom because hate speech and gun laws are regulated.
“When there’s a drunk driving accident, you don’t ban cars, you try to prevent drunk people from driving them,” Carlson opined. “The idea that taking guns away from the law abiding will make us safer is insane and childish.”
Co-host Anna Kooiman claimed that the number of guns in the United States has decreased and that guns couldn’t be at fault.
“The other side of the that argument, of course, is — and what people always throw out there — is look at Australia,” co-host Clayton Morris noted. “They have no gun violence, they don’t have guns, citizens aren’t allowed to have guns.”
“They also have no freedom!” Carlson interrupted. “You can go to prison for expressing unpopular views and people do. And in Western Europe by the way. And in Canada. No one ever says that.”
“Would [the Umpqua shooter] have been going there in the first place if it wasn’t a gun free zone?” Kooiman declared. “That’s why we’re seeing these mass shootings happen. It’s not in places where you know there’s going to be guns.”
