Ben Shapiro: Gun Control Advocates Pushing 'Evidence-less Proposition' Based on Emotion
"The suggestion that gun control is going to put an end to incidents like this, again, that is an evidence-less proposition based on nothing but emotional response," the editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire told "Fox & Friends."
Late night comics called for "common sense gun control" this week, claiming that more gun laws would have prevented the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
"All this seems like is people shouting, 'Do something,' while they have no particular solutions and no expertise on guns or gun control," Shapiro commented.
He called it "quite disgusting" that gun control advocates are convinced their opponents do not care as much about the victims of gun violence.
Stephen Paddock, the gunman who killed 59 and injured more than 500 at a Las Vegas country concert on Sunday, bought all his guns legally and had no criminal record or history of mental illness.
"Mass shootings are actually a pretty terrible way of determining policy, because the sample size is so low because it tends to be non-representative of deaths involving guns in the United States overall," Shapiro explained.
