Ben Shapiro: The Reason So Many Children Die By Gun Violence Is That “They Cannot Carry Guns” [VIDEO]

“When he [Biden] suggests that more children are dying by gun than on-duty police officers, maybe one of the reasons for that is because — you know, I spot a couple of differentiators.

“One of them is that on-duty police officers carry guns, kids cannot carry guns nor should they, obviously.

“But, the point is that people who are protected tend not to get shot as often. Even in the most dangerous situations they tend not to get shot quite as often because they can protect themselves. So he’s making directly the case that he supposedly opposes.

“This, by the way, is the case that Democrats are consistently making, is the idea that even a lawful, law-abiding person who knows how to use his gun isn’t capable of stopping a bad guy with a gun – which, of course, is untrue.

“I’m unaware of any situation in which the threat of a good guy with a gun has not ended a situation with a bad guy with a gun. Do folks on the left just think that bad guys randomly give up their guns when they get bored or tired?

“That’s not how any of this works.” – Ben Shapiro, going on to claim that the “multiple guns” in his home make his own children safer.

Can’t think of an example of ‘good guys with guns’ not stopping a shooting? Really, not even this week, Shapiro? Funny.

They are so desperate to support the NRA & gun profits! My father, WW2 veteran, said “I saw too many guns in the “WAR”, I don’t need to see them here!”

Which is why police officers never get shot.

Life is just like “Walker, Texas Ranger.” I expect I could take down six armed assailants, no sweat.

Strawmanning. That’s all that is. Biden was quite clear in his speech last night and that speech outlined the view of most Democrats. Few are advocating for an all-out bad on all guns. So he’s just lying. We want a ban on AR-15s and similar weapons, better background checks. A waiting period might be nice (giving people a chance to cool off before committing acts of violence. And raising the age to 21 is a good idea. Those are all practical ideas that are popular with Americans. So of course right wingers don’t want to argue against those proposals, you know the ones that are actually in bills that are being considered. No. They want to rail against things that are not in any current bill and not being proposed by any prominent Democrat. This is just bullshit.

  1. “But, the point is that people who are protected tend not to get shot as often. Even in the most dangerous situations they tend not to get shot quite as often because they can protect themselves.

    In a mass shooting incident (for example, in a crowded mall — or any kind of group gathering), it makes absolutely NO difference if every single person had a gun. A mass shooter counts on surprise and the fast action of the gun (i.e., AR-15) to accomplish his purpose. Even if someone managed to access their gun and shoot at the perp, in a moment of fear and stress, there is little to no chance s/he would succeed. It takes TRAINING to do that kind of thing … and even then, there are no guarantees.

    IOW, these JERKS will say ANYTHING to defend their IDIOTIC reasoning related to guns.

    1. Hello Nan. Please notice the switch Fast tongue Ben used.

      “But, the point is that people who are protected tend not to get shot as often. Even in the most dangerous situations they tend not to get shot quite as often because they can protect themselves. Yes protected people, people with security details, police presence, gates and walls, metal detectors, and a small select group of members due tend to be safe. People like the wealthy, members of congress, fancy private schools that restrict attendance to only certain kids, high end restrictive clubs, and so on.

      But the next sentence doesn’t fit with the first. They tend not to get shot because they can protect themselves. No they are not protecting themselves; they are being protected. Ben wants to give the idea that all those protected people were packing, and they were John Wayne, Dirty Harry, and Rambo.

      Yes Nan in a crowded area and multiple people running around screaming more people shooting only increases the chances that more innocent people will be shot. As you say it takes training to not only lock in your target but to control your adrenaline spike, avoid tunnel vision, ignore screams and misinformation your brain is giving you. We all have seen videos of trained police failing on all of those and firing off a full clip and missing with most of them. Firing when there is no reason to do so. Plus when the police show up how do they tell the good people with a gun from the bad people with guns?

      Let me add one more thing about the AR-15 and weapons like that. I have posted on what that bullet does to the body and it is designed to do that. It tumbles in the body to do maximum damage. It can out again this week, some kids had so much body and head damage that they had to identify them with the DNA of the parents. A couple years ago I posted of an ER doctor who was on the scene of a shooting with one of those weapons, who couldn’t stop the bleeding nor help the kids because the bullet did so much internal damage. Most people think of these wounds like the TV ones, small entry hole, larger exit hole. That is not what these bullets do.

      When a patient is shot by an AR-15, it “looks like a grenade went off in there.”

      If you are in a safe mind frame and can handle the mental image the descriptions bring up give it a read. I made the mistake of googling the images, and even with my strong stomach I was sickened. I have seen and helped work on open body wounds, they did not bother me because it was to help, the damage these bullets do is pure harm. These types of guns have only one use, hunting humans. They are battlefield weapons. You don’t use them to hunt animals for meat, the bullets damage the meat too much. Smaller game is blown apart. I just watched Chris Christy claim it is the Democrats fault that nothing can be done on gun safety because the Democrats are too extreme and locked into their position. WTF. Donna Brazile called him out on that. The Christy claimed it was the Democrats fault because they make it a moral issue that insults gun owners. Brazile then asked him what was more moral than life and death, then the life of kids in school or grandmothers in grocery stores. You are correct, they will do anything to avoid losing the gun makers / sellers big donations. Hugs
