Radio talk show legend Howard Stern spent a good portion of his morning show tackling the issue of gun control in the wake of the Orlando terrorist attack.
Stern started off by explaining that no amount of gun control could have prevented the attack, then used a wolves and sheep analogy, saying that the terrorists (the wolves) are attacking while liberals are trying to disarm civilians (the sheep).
“The terrorist’s all have AR-15s, they have glocks, they have every kind of pistol,” he explained.
“Now what if I went up to the sheep and I said, ‘You wanna have a shot at the wolves? I’m going to give you a pistol.’”

Howard Stern said no gun control laws could have prevented what happened in Orlando.
During “The Howard Stern Show” Wednesday, the radio host used an analogy concerning sheep, sheepdogs, and wolves to explain why disarming the American public is a bad idea.
“I’m so upset about Orlando and what went down, but I can’t believe these people who come out afterwards and their answer to Orlando is to take away guns from the public,” Stern said. “It’s f***ing mind-blowing to me.”
Stern then turned his argument back toward the most deadly attack on American soil which didn’t use a single gun – 9/11.
“The wolves are always planning,” Stern said. “They’ll use boxcutters. They’ll use an airplane fly it right into a building. They don’t need AR-15s.”
In a cold hard truthful statement, Stern added the following:
“The most gun-free zone on the planet is a plane. On 9/11, what did the wolves do? They said, ‘This is great. We’ll just kill the sheep with boxcutters.’ So they went on the plane with boxcutters and all the sheep went, ‘Baaaa.’”
Stern has proven a strong supporter of the right to bear arms in recent years.
Listen to him shut down an anti-gun nut (his producer) in this debate (NSFW: Language) …
He has previously defended the Second Amendment, saying, “I believe every citizen needs the right to be armed” because a weapon serves as a “great equalizer” when confronted by someone trying to harm you.
