In the face of mounting pressure following the Uvalde school shooting massacre, popular podcast host Joe Rogan stood strongly in opposition to strict gun control and weapons bans.
Rogan insisted during a Spotify podcast Thursday that “no one knows how to stop” something like what happened in Uvalde.
“What is the answer? Is the answer to take everyone’s guns?” he said, alluding to discussions ongoing amongst anti-gun lawmakers. “Well, they’re not gonna give their guns up.”
“Only criminals are gonna have guns,” Rogan added. “It’s not gonna be a good situation.”

In addition to suggesting only criminals would be armed if gun control proponents have their way, Joe Rogan explained why government control of a constitutionally-guaranteed right is a very bad idea.
It isn’t smart “to take all the guns away from people and give all the power to the government,” he insisted.
“We see how they are with an armed populace, they still have a tendency towards totalitarianism,” Rogan explained.
Imagine how it would be with an unarmed populace.
We saw evidence of this when Australia’s media and government were celebrating draconian lockdowns on non-vaccinated citizens while the vaccinated were rewarded with things like “one hour” of extra recreational time.

The podcast king added that “the more increased power and control you have over people, the easier it is for them to do what they do.”
Rogan went on to say that the government’s “natural inclination” is to try to gain power during times of crisis.
“And it’s a natural inclination, when you’re a person in power, to try to hold more power and acquire more power.”
Exactly as they did during the pandemic.
During a 2019 podcast interview with Pete Dominick, Rogan again addressed gun control and referenced the number of firearms in America.
“Even if you made guns illegal, even if you said you can’t have any bullets, you’ll all go to jail, there’s so many guns, you’re not getting them all. It’s not possible,” he said.
In 2018, he called out Hollywood hypocrites who advocate for gun control while glorifying violence in their movies and simultaneously protect themselves with armed guards.
Of course, the liberal media is highlighting that liberals on the internet are not pleased with Rogan.
Newsweek ran this headline: “Joe Rogan’s ‘Only Criminals’ Take on Gun Laws Condemned”
The UK’s Independent blared: “Joe Rogan branded a ‘moron’ after claiming it’s ‘wise’ not to take guns away from owners”
Though he’s quite different in recent years, another ‘shock jock’ of sorts, Howard Stern, once argued against gun control in a similar manner to Joe Rogan.
Stern, in a 2016 broadcast, said no amount of gun control could have prevented the Orlando terrorist attack at Pulse nightclub that year.
“The wolves are always planning,” he said at the time. “They’ll use boxcutters. They’ll use an airplane (and) fly it right into a building. They don’t need AR-15s.”
The wolves are always planning. And the criminals will always be able to get their guns. The only unarmed people, if Democrats have their way, will be you and I.
