Tucker Carlson: Australians 'Have No Freedom' Because Of Hate Speech And Gun Regulations

The hosts of "Fox & Friends" asserted on Sunday that mass shootings could be prevented by banning "gun free zones" instead of passing the type gun safety laws that have worked in Australia.

The hosts of Fox & Friends asserted on Sunday that mass shootings could be prevented by banning "gun free zones" instead of passing the type gun safety laws that have worked in Australia.

According to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, praised Donald Trump for blaming the Umpqua Community College shooting on campus gun bans.

"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 argued that "the number of guns in American households has actually gone down" as the number of mass shootings increase so guns could not 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."

The SBC television network explains that Australia's hate speech laws rarely result in penalties and "no-one ever goes to jail."
