“Only Criminals Are Gonna Have Guns”: Joe Rogan Warns Against Confiscation

Podcaster Joe Rogan has come out against attempts to confiscate guns in the aftermath of the Uvalde, Texas school shooting, arguing that criminals will be the only ones left with firearms.

“It’s like, how do you stop that? No one knows how to stop that. What is the answer? Is the answer to take everyone’s guns? Well, they’re not gonna give their guns up. Only criminals are gonna have guns. It’s not gonna be a good situation. Is the answer to make schools these armored compounds, where you have armed guards outside of every school? … Boy, that’s not something we want either,” Rogan told guest Lex Fridman.

“I don’t think it’s wise to take all the guns away from people and give all the power to the government. We see how they are with an armed populace, they still have a tendency towards totalitarianism. And the more increased power and control you have over people, the easier it is for them to do what they do. And it’s a natural inclination, when you’re a person in power, to try to hold more power and acquire more power.”

“This Country Has a Mental Health Problem Disguised as a Gun Problem,” said the host, echoing his comments from 2013.

    Sorry Joe, but armed guards, doors locked from the outside, and metal detectors may be the answer now. Lives have become so cheap now since abortion became commonplace. Killing a baby after it’s born no longer shocks like it would have years ago. Mental illness has become more wide spread, and killing becomes the answer to them. People have become so used to insane rhetoric on social platforms that it no longer even registers.

    We’re reading news stories about criminal robber parents blaming police when the robber gets shot. The same mentality claims we should get rid of the Second Amendment that permits law abiding people to have guns to protect themselves from criminals….and even protect a policeman from being killed or wounded. There aren’t enough policemen to protect us from the increasing population of criminals. Why would our President keep our southern border open?
