After 19 children and two adults were killed in a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Joe Rogan was chastised for swimming in a conversation about gun control in the United States.
Joe Rogan Was Called Out Following The Discussion On Weapon Control In The United States
Salvador Ramos, an 18-year-old shooter, began shooting at Uvalde’s Robb Elementary School on Tuesday, May 24.
Before commencing to shoot, authorities say Ramos entered the school with a military-grade weapons cache and upwards of 660 rounds in high-capacity cartridge magazines.
The findings revealed how the gunman was able to purchase such weapons without drawing the attention of law enforcement.
Not quickly after the shooting, a number of well-known Americans reacted to it, with many criticizing the government for not enacting more stringent gun control measures.
“Furthermore, it’s a natural propensity for those in positions of authority to try to hold on to and acquire more power.”
The dubious podcaster’s comments come despite critical evidence from countries such as Australia and Japan, which have nearly eliminated firearm passings through strict legislation or, in the latter’s case, compensating citizens to surrender their guns to the government.
Fans and onlookers had mixed reactions to Rogan’s broadcast, with some calling him a “flat out nitwit” for making “silly contentions” in his webcast, which has previously been chastised for disseminating inaccurate information on numerous matters.
“Joe Rogan makes a tremendous deal of money every day walking down some terrible route on sound judgement,” Philly Mag columnist Ernest Owens wrote.
Rogan suggested allowing a live video transmission with Redban from his home and collaborating with followers in a conversation channel and on Twitter, with the sound component supplied as a downloadable webcast, after spending some time on Justin.tv.
Rogan was influenced by the open conversation style of Opie and Anthony, as well as Anthony Cumia’s live Ustream show, Live from the Compound, which he hosted from his storm cellar studio.
YouTube Is The Place To Be
The internet broadcast was initially taped at Rogan’s California house.
A few episodes were recorded at the Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, California, also known as the Deathsquad Studios, beginning November 24, 2011.
Since November 27, 2012, the majority of episodes have been preserved at a secure studio in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, which Rogan rented. On August 18, 2017, the 1,000th episode aired, with comedians Joey Diaz and Tom Segura as guests.
In January 2013, video episodes of the online recording began to be uploaded to YouTube under the name PowerfulJRE, with episodes regularly attracting hundreds of thousands to millions of views.
Later in 2013, Redban began to reduce his time as the webcast’s only producer because Rogan had increased the number of digital broadcasts each week, “and it to the point where Rogan needed to continue to go, six, seven hours,” which proved to be too much for him to handle alone.
As a result, Jamie Vernon was hired as a later creator, initially to fill in as Redban’s colleague before passing on Redban to create almost half of the resultant episodes.
Vernon soon took over full-time, and Redban was recorded as a visitor on the digital recording.
