In recent days, Donald Trump has gotten on the nerves of conservatives and some in the right-wing media for expressing a potential compromise on gun control. In response, a host on Fox News decided to speak out.

Fox News on Trump

Following last month's school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the issue of gun control has once again vaulted into the headlines. Since the shooting, students from the school have been vocal in their call to action for gun reform, which has resulted in repeated debates and clashes with members of the NRA.

While Donald Trump has been a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, he made comments earlier this week that didn't go over well with his supporters. Trump said he would support the decision to "take the guns first" before "go(ing) through due process second," also adding "I like taking the guns early."

These comments didn't go over well with many in the right-wing media, which was highlighted during the March 1 edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Fox News. "How honest do you wanna be?" Carson said of Trump's remarks. "Imagine if Barack Obama had said that?" Carlson rhetorically asked.

"Just ignore due process and confiscating guns? Obama would have been denounced as a dictator," he noted.

"We would have denounced him first, trust me," Tucker Carlson continued, stating, "Congress would be talking impeachment.

Some would be muttering secession." Not stopping there, the Fox News host went on to say that Americans are not "mere subjects of the powerful" while adding, "The president needs to be reminded of that."

Right-wing break

Tucker Carlson's comments come as a surprise to many as he's been one of the most outspoken supporters of the president, especially when it comes to issues dealing with the Russian investigation and his reckless tweets and policy proposals.

However, the topic of gun rights is one that the majority of conservative voters hold close to their heart, and it appears it's not one that many will be willing to compromise on, even if it means breaking with Trump.

The debate over gun control has been an on again, off again topic, which is highlighted following a mass shooting before typically losing steam as the days and weeks move along. According to Gun Violence Archive, there have been a total of 34 mass shootings in 2018 as of February 21, which is defined as "four or more individuals being shot or killed in the same general time and location." While it's unknown as of press time what steps Congress will take on the issue, only time will tell if change will occur.
