Tucker: 'March for Our Lives' Backed By the Wealthy, Demands 'You Be Punished for Crimes Others Committed'
Tucker Carlson said the "March for Our Lives" taking place across the nation Saturday is backed by wealthy figures and is calling for things that are "unconstitutional and irrational."
"Thousands of activists will descend on Washington to demand that you be punished for crimes others committed," Carlson said.
He said the District of Columbia branch of the march is backed by billionaire media magnate and former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg (I) as well as progressive New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).
"Some of what they are calling for is unconstitutional and irrational - it cannot work, it won't work, and that's why it's not already the law," Carlson said.
Carlson said gun control proponents are choosing to use victims of the Florida school shooting as political figures to avoid debating key issues on the topic of gun control.

He said that every American has a right to their view, but conversely has a right to "assess" those views.
Carlson also played tape of a shooting survivor often interviewed on television and often voices support for strict gun control.
David Hogg, 17, told an interviewer he is "not going to let that [expletive] happen" when asked about Gov. Rick Scott's (R-Fla.) reelection.
He called for people to "use their white privilege" to make sure their voice is heard on the topic of gun control.
"Sell more guns, murder more children, get reelected," Carlson later said, recalling another one of Hogg's statements about Second Amendment proponents.
He noted how another survivor, Emma Gonzalez, said she does not care what Second Amendment supporters have to say.
"If you honestly don't care what people who disagree with you think, if you believe they want to, quote, 'murder more children,' then who are you?" he asked.
"You're definitely not fit to be making policy for the rest of us," he said. "Maybe a journalist could point that out."
Carlson added that Hogg has "been through unspeakable tragedy" but should not be able to be "used" by adults to "push [the adults'] agenda on the rest of us."
