I don’t think anyone would ever argue with the fact that Mike Huckabee has a way with words and putting things into perspective.
The real “trick” here is getting Liberals to listen to actual reason and stop basing everything on feelings. It’s a fact that gun deaths are not even in the top 10 of causes of Death in the United States… but again, will they listen to reason?
“I salute these students for their passion and their energy, and for their interest in helping to shape public policy,” Huckabee began, extending an olive branch to the young people protesting. “But I would say this to them: Emotion is a terrible substitute for truth.“
“It is a terrible substitute for facts,” Huck continued. “And they’ve been used, by believing that if they just ban a certain type of firearm, that things are going to be better.”
“Here’s the facts: Five times more people are killed in America by knives… than they are by rifles,” Huckabee explained.
“It’s also true that over 86 percent of the 20,000 police chiefs and sheriffs in America do not support repealing concealed carry, but rather support (gun ownership),” Mike Huckabee went on. “And they don’t support more gun control methods.”

I think what we have here is another prime example of believing that feelings matter of facts. The left is hellbent on ending gun ownership in my opinion instead of studying the causes of these events.
Let’s face one truth, they could take every single gun from every single citizen in the United States and it would not end mass killings or even killings in general. They could literally knock down every down, search every home and it’s every nook and cranny, and take every gun ever… and it would not stop this.
These are tragic events, no doubt… but they want what they see as a “quick fix” without thinking about the big picture.
