Tucker Carlson Says He’ll Disarm When Michael Bloomberg Does

A former executive director of Everytown for Gun Safety failed to mount an effective defense of gun control ringleader Michael Bloomberg’s hypocrisy in an interview with Tucker Carlson on FOX News.

Breitbart reports that Mark Glaze was on the show to defend an increase in Seattle’s ineffective gun tax, but soon Carlson shifted the subject to Bloomberg’s security detail: “If guns are so bad, I wonder, why does Mike Bloomberg have armed bodyguards? … And again, people who are at real risk—like delivery guys—can’t have them?”

Glaze was unable to give a more compelling response than simply pointing out that Bloomberg is “in the public eye.” Carlson concluded, “The second Bloomberg disarms, I’ll be next.”

We’d love to know how Bloomberg feels about this, although we don’t imagine that Carlson will have to turn in his guns anytime soon.
