Spotify podcaster Joe Rogan spoke out against liberals demands for tighter gun restrictions in the wake of the Robb Elementary School shooting that killed 21 students and teachers last week.
“It’s like, how do you stop that? No one knows how to stop that? What is the answer? Is the answer to take everyone’s guns?” Rogan questioned on his Thursday episode. “Well, they’re not gonna give their guns up. Only criminals are gonna have guns. It’s not gonna be a good situation.”
He argued that our constitutional right to bear arms allows Americans to retain the freedoms we have, when faced with a government that keeps getting more powerful.
“We see how they are, even with an armed populace, they still have a tendency towards totalitarianism,” Rogan went on. “And the more increased power and control you have over people, the easier it is for them to do what they do.”
“And it’s a natural inclination, when you’re a person in power, to try to hold more power and acquire more power. And it’s never, there’s never an inclination to give more power back to the people. to give more freedoms back to the people,” he concluded. “Freedoms lost are rarely regained.”
“The Joe Rogan Experience” host also delved into the ongoing defamation case between Hollywood exes Johnny Depp and Amber Heard in the episode, clearly indicating that he was on Team Depp.
“Her f***ing lawyers are terrible,” Rogan said about Heard. “She probably found ’em on Craigslist. They don’t make any sense. Their questions are terrible. They’re so ill prepared.”
He called the “Aquaman” actress “a clear sociopath” and “a clear liar,” then fantasized about the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star’s relationship with his lawyer.
“That Camille Vasquez, that lady’s a gangster. She’s amazing. I hope Johnny and her fall in love. That’s what I hope. I hope after this trial’s over, they go out to dinner and he thanks her, and then they fall in love and he gets sober,” Rogan gushed. “I think she loves him. I think she loves him. And I think she hates Amber. Cause Amber hurt him.”
The lawsuit drew to an end on Friday when both sides gave closing arguments.
