I’m not sure what could be more enraging to the left than a comedian and a black man repping NRA TV bashing anti-gun ideals, but comedian Joe Rogan and NRA TV’s Colion Noir definitely took to it like pros.
The conversation began with Noir suggesting that in order to prevent more mass shootings, we need to get rid of gun-free zones. This is the most common sense approach, as not being armed doesn’t save you from the armed and the numbers prove it. Over 98 percent of mass shootings have occurred in gun-free zones.
Noir points out that we guard any locations of value with guns, and this includes any school a president’s children are in. Rogan picked up from there and highlighted that the privileged in Hollywood also enjoy armed security, and used the Academy Awards as the perfect example.
No one is more anti-gun than Hollywood. When you hear about any sort of crime or gun violence, the left-wing people in Hollywood are the most vocal, the most virtue-signaling, the quickest to jump on their pedestal. Meanwhile, what percentage of their f***ing movies involve gun violence? And if you look at the Academy Awards, did you see the security at the Academy Awards? You see all these left-leaning liberal actors being protected by people with flak jackets on. Carrying guns with fingers outside the triggers. I mean, dogs? It’s crazy.
The presence of weapons in the protection of important things is a practice as old as time immemorial. If someone really wants to take or harm something being guarded by a weapon, the person going for it must first weigh their life with their goal. Oftentimes, the person will choose life, and even if they don’t, they’ll likely lose it in their quest to steal or kill.
The leftist elite, be they of Hollywood or D.C., seem to believe that whatever they hold dear is worth protecting with firearms. Thing is, they don’t seem to want to extend the same protection to the peasantry. Their safety, valuables and loved ones are worth killing for, but you should just be able to lose these things without the same protections because…well, as far as I can tell, we’re not worth as much.
It’s bad enough that this hypocrisy of “guns for me, but not for thee” is present, but not highlighted often is that this idea is rooted in the elitism of those attempting to make the rules of engagement between us and the world at large FOR us.
Rogan and Noir paint this beautifully.
