“I don’t think it’s wise to take all the guns away from people and give all the power to the government,” Rogan said.
“We see how they are with an armed populace, they still have a tendency towards totalitarianism. 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.”
This view has led to the host of The Joe Rogan Experience facing some criticism on Twitter.
“Ummmm…Joe Rogan has a podcast where he smokes pot and….well….smokes pot. He’s not really in a position to ‘issue stern warnings’ with any kind of clout and/or authority,” reads one tweet in response.
