Tucker Carlson: Australian-style gun safety legislation in America is “a recipe for bloodshed and civil war”

According to Vox, Australia's gun safety bill “went into effect peacefully, and some 650,000 guns were destroyed after the buyback”

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): A piece on Vox.com today calls for a landmark gun-control bill like the one Australia passed 22 years ago in 1996. That's the law that liberals are always telling you about. But the Australian law wasn't gun control and it wasn't a voluntary buyback, no matter what they tell you.

It was gun confiscation, a wholesale mandatory disarmament of the entire civilian population. Imagine what would happen if you tried that here in this country. America is not Australia for a bunch of reasons including our history, and our Bill of Rights.

Imagine federal officials marching from house to house, seizing hundreds of millions of firearms from law-abiding citizens, and then fining and imprisoning those who resist. Vox approvingly calls this leadership. In fact, it's a recipe for bloodshed and civil war. It's nuts. Yet it is a common fantasy on the left.
