TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Ryan Cleckner is a former Army special operations sniper. He's a firearms attorney, and columnist at the Federalist, and he joins us now. Ryan, thanks for coming on.
RYAN CLECKNER : Thanks for having me on, Tucker.
CARLSON: So, I think a lot of the people who are coming to the marches this weekend are just upset about school shootings, and maybe haven't thought about the agenda that undergirds -- the people organizing it have a pretty clear legislative agenda. They'd like to do a lot of different things.
CLECKNER: Criminals don't obey laws. The definition of a criminal is somebody who doesn't obey a law. Banning an inanimate object will not solve these problems. So, for example, the Maryland shooting yesterday didn't involve an AR-15. Virginia Tech, used pistols. The Ft. Hood massacre, he used pistols. 9/11, they used box cutters. The tool is not the problem.
I mean, you want to talk about tools, look at the Austin bombings that we just solved today -- bombs are already illegal. It didn't stop the bombings from happening.
