Breitbart News Tonight: The Children’s Crusade for Gun Control


On Tuesday’s edition of Breitbart News Tonight, Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour will take your calls and discuss the news of the day.

Dr. Gina Loudon will join the show to discuss the use of a group of teenage students in the latest push for gun control following the Florida shooting. Is this an exploitative use of children to push a political agenda? Dr. Loudon will also discuss the possible root causes of the increase in mass shootings in the United States and whether more gun control will solve the problem.

Breitbart News’s AWR Hawkins will discuss the Donald Trump’s announcement of his intention to ban bump stocks.

Jessica Vaughn, Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), will discuss her recent testimony before Congress on the effect of sanctuary city policies on our ability to combat the opioid crisis and how these policies affect the security of American citizens. According to CIS, there are about 300 state and local governments “with laws, rules, or policies that impede federal efforts to enforce immigration laws.” CIS reports that since 2014 an estimated 10,000 criminal aliens who were released due to sanctuary city policies were arrested again on new criminal charges. In a recent ICE crackdown in the Los Angeles area in the “sanctuary state” of California, 195 repeat offenders were arrested, more than half of whom are serious or violent criminals.

Curtis Ellis, senior policy advisor for America First Policies, will address Monday’s Wall Street Journal editorial arguing that the Trump administration’s proposed steel and aluminum tariffs would punish American workers and cost more jobs than they would save.

Historian Victor Davis Hanson will discuss his latest National Review article entitled, “Kill Chic,” in which he illustrates how in movies, novels, music, and art, progressives seem to relish depicting the “murder [of] their enemies, including presidents.” He notes that “this idea of metaphorically cutting, bleeding, or shooting those whom you don’t like without real consequences has seeped into the national political dialogue.”
