Fox News’ Tucker Carlson took on Democratic Florida state Sen. Gary Farmer Thursday over gun control on Thursday, and it ended with Tucker cutting off his guest after he couldn’t get a straight answer.


Tucker said, “I would have to, under the bill you supported, the gun registry bill. I would have to register guns in my house, despite the fact I’ve committed no crime, done nothing untoward with that gun, and I have to register it with you and other government officials, who just failed to keep us…”

Farmer responded, “What’s wrong with that Tucker? Why does law enforcement? Why are they unable to have the tools available to them?”

“I don’t know, they were unable to stop the guy who just killed 17 people,” The Daily Caller co-founder said.

Farmer said, “What is everybody afraid of with a gun registry?”


“We’re afraid that demagogues like you will misuse that information and after talking to you for a few minutes that is a legitimate fear,” Carlson said.

Farmer said, “How so? How so? Continue the narrative, please. How so?”

“Here’s the narrative,” Carlson said. “The government, as I said at every level, and this is factual, not my opinion, failed to protect those students. You will not concede that and instead turn the blame back on blameless American citizens.”

“The FBI, whatever. Thirty-nine times to his house, whatever. Giving people like you power is frightening. That’s the bottom line. I’m out, because I can’t get a straight answer from you,” he added.
