After a series of school shootouts in the U.S, Joe Rogan landed himself in yet another massive controversy, and this time, surrounding his views on the gun control laws. Rogan, a UFC color commentator, and comedian is widely known around the world as the podcast kingpin since it’s through his platform in a podcast- The Joe Rogan Experience– that becomes the breeding ground of all the controversies.
Rogan is one of those few people around that are against the gun control laws for many reasons. One of the main reasons is that taking away arms from the average citizen improves a criminal’s tendency to commit a crime upon that citizen who is also having a gun but whose arms cannot be confiscated by the government because they are in the hands of the criminal who is not detained yet.
Rogan has talked a lot about this issue, and he recently criticized Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, for his comments about the gun laws in their country. He was talking to self-proclaimed gun enthusiast and activist, Colion Noir, and they bashed Justin for his statement.
“I was so disgusted”- Joe Rogan couldn’t believe Justin Trudeau’s comments about Canadian gun laws
Rogan referred to the incident where Justin claimed Canadian people are allowed to own guns, but they cant use them to protect themselves or someone else in face of the danger, “He said you don’t have the right in Canada to own a gun to protect your life,” Rogan stated. “It is one of the most wild things I’ve ever seen anybody say, because first of all, I don’t believe it’s true. I don’t believe he is correct in terms of what, what do they have up there? They don’t have a constitution. It’s not the same, whatever it is.”
Rogan added, “F*ck. Someone sent it to me and I don’t know if I saved it cause I was so disgusted. I think I might have like just f*cking threw my hands up in the air, but there’s a whole Twitter thread about it that someone had sent to me.”
“I can’t find it at the moment, but essentially what he was saying was that that is not what’s in the, whatever they have up there. That it says you have the right to own a gun for hunting and for shooting sports, you do not have the right to own a gun for self-preservation and to preserve lives. But apparently that’s not even true,” Rogan concluded.
