Ok. We need to be emailing and calling this guy and commending him. I don't know if anyone else just saw his last segment but he just lambasted two hard core antigun morons. Goon #1 tied the 2nd to hunting and said we have a national gaurd and army......As the guy is rambling, Tucker says, "YEAH THEY WERE A BIG HELP ON MONDAY" Tucker is absolutely championing ccw I think we have to be supporting this, esp from a talking head on a liberal network, he can reach so many people that don't care on the issue...Goon #2 by the way was crying that ccw take fistfights to gunfights and Tucker says, "NAME ONE INSTANCE OF IT"

Please support the guy with an email at the least and someone please youtube that segment!

I've been emailing support messages to many people that deserve them. It's a very good thing to do.

But I'm not familiar with everyone on every media source, and I don't have time to google every item worthy of support and viewing.

A link or 2 would be very helpful. :D

I'll post tonight's transcript if someone doesn't beat me to it, it will make you sick when you read or see the arguments of the antigunners

Not the specific segment in question, but interesting nonetheless...

I have never heard of this guy before but he has my respect simply for forcing them to back up their statements of supposed fact

I sent him an email after he made a horse's ass out of McCarthy. Click on email the show.

Tucker used to be on later in the night and I watched his show every time I could. Bummed me out when they put him on prime time.

Is this the same Tucker Carlson that was on that "Hardball" or "Hardfire" or whatever it was on one of the networks where they debated? The goon with the bow tie who always argued the leftist side of arguments?

If so, I'm impressed! I wonder if he's become 'libertarian'?

I always considered him to be pretty conservative. Maybe not extreme right wing but diffently on the right. The name of the show was Crossfire.

Tucker was always "from the right", on Crossfire. He doesn't wear the bow tie any more. Never did understand the bow tie. It made him look like a dwebe.

Bottom line is he slammed McCarthy...HARD. He handed us a soundbite that can be used against her forever. He gets a big brownie point for that!

He did a number on two antigun Democratic strategists last night as well, still waiting on the transcript....

Tucker keeps mentioning being "mostly libertarian' but basically just has a sensitive BS meter, no matter who is talking. I like him a lot, but found a cheap shot element in the barrel shroud question, as if that one point invalidated McCarthy's entire proposition. Tucker had a good point, but I don't think it slayed the dragon. I must say it was interesting how McCarthy evaded the question and how Tucker pursued her until she admitted that she didn't know the answer. But in the end, he will have forced her to do more homework and then only helped her in the long run. Obviously, barrel shrouds are not her main concern.

What the talking heads on that kind of show typically do is cut off a "guest", usually more foil than guest, who launches into "talking points" instead of answering a question. Of course, the challenge for a guest is to finish an answer.

Chris Matthews has an attention span of about 4 seconds before he interrupts or changes the subject, so his "guests" (foils) probably wonder why he even needed them for his speeches. It's hard for me to listen, but sometimes I don't bother to change the channel, actually listening from another room.

Disagree. In the age of internet content, he handed us a video clip to be circulated far and wide that makes it plainly obvious that the anti-gun crowd are horrendously ignorant.

Any time someone brings up renewing the ban on so-called "assault weapons" that clip needs to be re-played, linked to, and forwarded via email.

Is it a slam dunk tearing down of the entirety of HR1022?

No.

Is it a Stooge-style eye poke (http://www.jtk3.com/laissezfirearm/eyepoke.htm) that makes our opposition look foolish and incompetent?

Oh man, is it ever.

From 4/19/07
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18231442/

CARLSON:* It is a shoulder thing that goes up.* I don‘t want to be mean to Carolyn Mccarthy, seems like a perfectly nice person, but that‘s pathetic.* She is attempting to ban something she can‘t identify.* She‘s writing laws for the rest of us having to do with thing she doesn‘t understand at all.* And I guess I would submit this is not an aberration.* This is a metaphor for Congress‘s attempt to ban guns.*

They don‘t know what the hell they‘re talking about.* Maybe they ought to take a deep breath, and think it through, before trying to forcing it on the rest of America, don‘t you think?*

PETER FENN, DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST:* I think taking a deep breath is not a bad idea, Tucker.* I will say, in her defense, she lost a husband and a son to a random act of violence on a train.*

CARLSON:* How‘s that her defense?* She‘s trying to make a law that affects 300 million Americans.* She should know what is in it.*

FENN:* I don‘t know what a barrel shroud is.

CARLSON:* You are not trying to ban them.* She is.*

FENN:* I understand that, but she has fought very well, over a long period of time, for gun control and she believes very strongly in it.* I do not happen to agree with her on all of it.* I think it‘s too bad that we all don‘t know what a barrel shroud is, or you probably do by now.*

CARLSON:* I did before, but I guess the point is you ought to know what you are talking about before you try to impose your views on other people.* This is emblematic of what I see all the time on this specific subject, gun control.* The weapon looks scary.* It looks like something I saw on television.* It‘s bad!*

It relentlessly dumb.* Why aren‘t we spending our time trying to figure out what to do about the mentally ill who are prone to violence.* That‘s the conversation we ought to be having, don‘t you think?

STEVE MCMAHON, DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST:* Absolutely, we should be having that.* But we should also be having a conversation about what hunting purpose:cuss: is served by a gun that can empty 20 or 25 rounds a second into whatever it is that it is being fired at.*

CARLSON:* No guns sold in America can empty 20 rounds a second.*

Moreover, the second amendment says nothing about hunting.* :D

MCMAHON:* But that‘s the defense that every Republican uses; I‘m a hunter.*

CARLSON:* I don‘t know what every Republican says.* I‘m telling you that hunting is not the reason, or the reason at all, we have a second amendment.* Hunting has nothing to do with it.

MCMAHON:* Well, militias have something to do with it.* Originally many people believed that the intention of the framers was that people should be able to keep guns in order to form militias.* Well guess what, we have militias now.* We have the National Guard; we have the military.*

CARLSON:* How did they do on Monday in Blacksburg?

MCMAHON:* The question is what kind of guns do people need?* What kind of guns have a legitimate hunting purpose?* And I don‘t think there is anybody talking about banning those kind of guns.* It is the kind of guns that fire a number of rounds, maybe not 20 rounds a second, but it certainly is far more rounds than a hunter needs to kill a deer or bird.*

CARLSON:* Again, hunting has nothing to do with it.* The obvious question is, wait a second, why is it crazy to say that if a student had had a gun—the police didn‘t do diddly for the victims of this crime.* They didn‘t do anything.* They showed up when it was over.* I‘m not attacking the police.* I‘m merely saying they weren‘t enough.* Neither was the National Guard or any militia or the U.S. Army, for that matter.

Why would it have been a bad idea if one of the students had a concealed weapons permit, he could have saved lives?* Why is that a crazy notion?

FENN:* That‘s a great idea, give the students concealed weapons to take to class.

CARLSON:* This guy killed 32 people.*

FENN:* Let me tell you why, because instead of getting in an argument and punching somebody in the jaw, somebody is going to pull out a gun and knock the guys block off.***

CARLSON:* How often does this happen in Virginia?* They have a concealed weapons permit.

FENN:* Not too many people were carrying guns in this place.* If we want to solve this problem, Tucker, we ought to take a look, again, at the kind of clips that we‘re talking about that you don‘t need for hunting, cop killer bullets.* The other thing, which I fully support, and the NRA supports, is that you have got to have information on people, so that when they go in there, a guy like this, who has been put into a mental hospital, who clearly showed signs of violence, who clearly has a problem, is somehow identified and prevented from purchasing two guns in a month and a half.*

CARLSON:* Let me just say; let me just make a statement of fact, then we can move on.* That is already the law.* If you have been adjudicated mentally ill, you are not allowed to buy a gun.*

FENN:* Well, he wasn‘t on this list.

CARLSON:* I‘m fully aware of that.* He should have been.* Just to make it clear for our viewers, that is the law and has been for years.*

MCMAHON:* Well, it hasn‘t worked.***

TC is going to bat for the 2nd. Tucker@msnbc.com

Hope I hit all the best parts....enjoy!!!!!!

I've never been a big fan of him. Back in his Crossfire days, he always struck me as being CNN's straw-man.

Given how he's conducted himself in the last couple of days, I've revised my opinion of him quite a bit. This stuff is just fantastic, and I'm utterly floored that he has the audacity to rub these people's noses in their own stupidity on live television like this.

Tucker has had no recent epiphany. He has been like this for a long time. He was underestimated and moved to late night. Then he was moved back, minus bow tie, and is the best segment on the MSNBC evening schedule.

Chris Matthews is terminally rude and self involved, and Keith Olbermann is a sports nerd pretending to be a political eagle. Tucker on the other hand is likeable and credible, and not just because he says things I enjoy hearing. He deals more in common sense and facts than political bias.

Mcmahon------is a typical fool. He knows absolutley NOTHING about firearms but wants them banned. He knows nothing about the 2nd amendment but has his brain so far up the DEMOCRAT kool aid machine he just speaks propaganda. He is a man who wants power to CONTROL others. I almost pity him.:(

Tucker needs to repeatedly drill these other guys, they simply lack the ammunition to fire back at his barages...

No, firearms are. Notice how her emphasis wasn't on pistols, but assault rifles, despite the fact that her husband and son were slain by a pistol-wielding nut.

Tucker Carlson is a gun owner and shooter, as is his brother. He is a conservative, as is his father, Dick Carlson, who is a friend of mine. I've known them for many years from when they lived across the street from me in Los Angeles. Been in their house many times.

Tucker will keep on a'keepin' on.

L.W.

P.S. Yeah, I'm glad he got rid of the bow ties, too.

Carlson is one of only two guys coming on TV I really like. The other guy is Lou Dobbs on CNN. What I like about Carlson is that he is a traditional Conservative. He wants the US to go back to it's roots. And if he sounds like he has a solid understanding of the 2A, it's only because he knows the Constitution.

As far as GW not being a real Conservative, I'd think GW has proved that he isn't a real Conservative by now. To anyone who says otherwise, I'll point them to the massive budget deficit, the increased spending for an enemy who didn't attack us, or have the means to attack us, the destruction of doctine of seperation of powers, and the invasion occurring silently along our southern border that this President has done nothing about for starters.

Look at Carlson's ideas, he is proof that when an old warrior dies, a new one comes to continue the fight. This man is the reincarnation of Barry Goldwater!

Hoorah AuH2O!!!:D
