Shapiro on New Zealand’s gun ban, Beto’s abortion comments


STEVE: WE ARE BACK WITH A FOX NEWS ALERT. THE COUNTRY OF NEW ZEALAND BANNED HIGH-POWERED MILITARY-STYLE WEAPONS DAYS AFTER THE DEADLY MOSQUE ATTACK THAT KILLED 50. BRIAN: THE GOVERNMENT IS WORKING ON BUYBACK PROGRAM, SO THE POLICE DESTROY GUNS THERE ILLEGALLY. THOSE WHO DOESN’T TURN OVER THE FIREARMS COULD FACE FINES AND PRISON TIME.>>WEAPONS BAN IS EXPECTED TO START NEXT MONTH. WE HAVE BEN SHAPIRO, HOST OF “THE BEN SHAPIRO SHOW,” THE AUTHOR OF THE NEW BOOK, THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY HOW REASON AND MORAL PURPOSE MADE THE WEST GREAT. WELCOME BEN. BRIAN: IS THIS A REASONABLE ANSWER TO THE MASSACRE THAT TOOK PLACE?>>EMOTIONALLY REASONABLE ANSWER BUT NOT A FACTUALLY REASONABLE ANSWER. THERE IS 1.2 MILLION GUNS IN NEW ZEALAND. IN COUNTRY THEY HAD 35 MURDERS. MOST WERE NOT WITH A GUN. THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT CRIMINALIZING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF NEW ZEALAND CITIZENS WHO DON’T TURN OVER GUNS RESPONSE TO ISOLATED STATISTICALLY. CRIMINALIZING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF LAW-ABIDING PEOPLE ON BASIS OF THAT SEEMS LIKE BAD POLICY. STEVE: BEN, SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS TWEETED THIS OUT. THIS IS WHAT REAL ACTION TO STOP GUN VIOLENCE LOOKS LIKE. WE MUST FOLLOW NEW SIGH LANDS A LEAD. TAKE ON THE NRA, BAN THE SALE AND DISTRIBUTION OF ASSAULT WEAPONSES IN THE UNITED STATES. BEN?>>OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER WHEN DEMOCRATS TRIED TO RUN AWAY SUGGESTING THEY WERE PUSHING FOR GUN CONFISCATION. NOW APPARENTLY THEY EMBRACE GUN CONFISCATION. WE HAVE SECOND AMENDMENT. DEEPLY EMBEDDED IN AMERICAN CULTURE, RIGHTLY SO IF YOU PICK COUNTRIES GOOD EXAMPLES WHY GUN CONFISCATION IS NEEDED NEW ZEALAND IS NOT ONE OF THEM. 235 MURDERS IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY, 2017, COUNTRY OF 1.4 MILLION PEOPLE. BRIAN: BETO O’ROURKE HAS SOME INTERESTING BELIEFS WE’RE FINDING OUT. DOESN’T REALLY STAND ON POLICY. LOOKING IN HIS BACKGROUND. HE WROTE A NOVEL HOW GREAT IT WAS TO RUN OVER CHILDREN. HE WAS A KID THEN. HE WAS PART OF A HACKING GROUP. WE DIDN’T FIND OUT ABOUT THAT UNTIL RECENTLY. THEN WE FIND OUT HE LIKES TO EAT DIRT FOR REVITALIZATION, DIRT FROM NEW MEXICO. WE FIND OUT WHERE HE STAND ON LATE-TERM ABORTIONS. LET’S SEE IF HE HAS A POSITION HERE.>>YOU WERE ASKED ABOUT LATE-TERM ABORTIONS. IF YOU SPECIFICALLY WON THE ELECTION LAST NOVEMBER, YOU WERE IN THE U.S. SENATE, HOW WOULD YOU HAVE VOTED ON THAT BILL?>>I WOULD HAVE LISTENED TO THE WOMEN, I WOULD HAVE LISTENED DOCTORS AND MEDICAL PROVIDERS. I WOULD HAVE LOOKED AT THE FACTS AND UNDERSTOOD THE TRUTH AND, THEN I WOULD HAVE VOTED WITH THOSE WOMEN TO MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS ABOUT THEIR OWN BODIES. JEDEDIAH: BEN, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A FULLY FUNCTIONING, VIABLE BABY. I’M STILL CONFUSED AS A WOMAN WHY PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT WOMEN’S RIGHTS IN RELATION TO A CHILD THAT NOW HAS ITS OWN RIGHTS. IS THIS REALLY WHAT DEMOCRATS WANT TO BE PUSHING?>>REALLY QUITE INSANE. THE FACT BETO O’ROURKE AND EVERY OTHER MAJOR DEMOCRAT FEEL FORCED TO EMBRACE THIS POSITION, THAT YOU HAVE TO BE FOR ABORTION UP TO, SOMETIMES BEYOND THE POINT OF BIRTH DEMONSTRATES THE RADICALISM OF DEMOCRATIC PARTY. EVEN BETO’S GENERALIZED POSITION WHICH IS IN THE THIRD TRIMESTER ABORTION SHOULD BE LEGAL, FORGET ABOUT THE INFANTICIDE POSITION, THIRD TRIMESTER POSITION ONLY 13% OF THE AMERICANS HOLD. THIS IS FAR OUT OF THE MAINSTREAM THEN GENERALIZED PRO-LIFE VIEW ON REPUBLICANS SIDE AISLE. MEDIA TREATS IT AS WOMEN HAVE A RIGHT TO KILL FULLY PERFORM FORMED BABIES. STEVE: YOU WERE OUT IN CALIFORNIA. SOMEBODY DOING RECRUITING FOR TURNING POINT USA NOW CHARGES WERE FILED AGAINST A NON-STUDENT OUT THERE. THE PRESIDENT, BEN, WILL SIGN AN EXECUTIVE ORDER ON FREE SPEECH ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES AND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS. WHO IS THIS GOING TO HELP?>>WELL, PRESUMABLY IT WILL HELP PEOPLE ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES WHO ARE TRYING TO EXERCISE THEIR FREE SPEECH, ARE PREVENTED FROM DOING SO BY THE ADMINISTRATION. THE REAL QUESTION WITH ALL EXECUTIVE ORDERS HOW IS IT LEGALLY DRAWN UP? JUST THE LAWYER IN ME WANTS TO KNOW THAT THE CONSTITUTION IS BEING FOLLOWED. THAT ALL OF THE LAWS ARE BEING, BEING USED. THIS ISN’T SORT OF AN OVERREACH. I DON’T KNOW THAT UNTIL I HAVE SEEN THE TEXT. GENERALIZED IDEA PROTECTING FIRST AMENDMENT, CONNECTING FOR EXAMPLE, UNIVERSITY FUNDING FOR RESEARCH TO THEIR ADHERENCE TO THE FIRST AMENDMENT, THAT SEEMS PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE TO ME. BRIAN: SOMEBODY WHO HAS GOTTEN PROTESTED, LOCKED OUT, SCREAMED AT, GOING ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES. YOU KNOW EXACTLY THE PROBLEM. YOUR NEW BOOK IS OUT. THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY, HOW REASON AND MORAL PURPOSE MADE THE WEST GREAT. WHAT DO YOU MEAN REASON? ARE WE REALLY REASONABLE PEOPLE HERE IN THE WEST?>>I THINK THAT THE BASIS OF THE WEST IS REASON. THE BASIS OF THE WEST IS THIS NOTION THAT WE ARE INDIVIDUALS MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD. THIS COMES FROM THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN TRADITION. AS INDIVIDUALS MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD WE HAVE REASONABLE CAPACITIES WE OUGHT TO USE TO PURSUE VIRTUE THE GREEK IDEA OF NATURAL LAW. THAT COMBINATION BETWEEN GREEK NATURAL LAW AND JUDEO-CHRISTIAN VALUES CREATED WEST. THESE ARE DEEPLY EMBEDDED IN THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AND CONSTITUTION. ONE OF THE REASON OUR CONFLICT, ANGER LEVELS ARE SO HIGH IN THE UNITED STATES, WE HAVE LARGELY FORGOTTEN THOSE ROOTS. WE MOVED SUBJECTIVE BELIEVE OUR FEELINGS MATTER MORE THAN OBJECTIVE TRUTH OR ETERNAL VALUES. STEVE: WE SEE A LOT OF THAT ABOUT FEELINGS, AREN’T WE?>>THE SELF-ESTEEM MOVEMENT DID INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF DAMAGE TO THE UNITED STATES. HOW I FEEL TODAY, IF YOU OFFEND ME, SOMEHOW YOU SINNED AGAINST ME OR CERTAINED AGAINST MY IDENTITY. INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS FOR AMERICAN POLITICS AND ACTUALLY EXACERBATES THE IDENTITY POLITICS AND POLITICAL POLARIZATION, RACIAL POLARIZATION YOU SEE IN THE COUNTRY. JEDEDIAH: REMINDS ME YOUR FACTS DON’T CARE ABOUT MY FEELINGS,
