Radio host Howard Stern blasted calls for gun control in the wake of the Orlando terror attack, saying it's "mind blowing."
"I'm so upset about Orlando and what went down," Stern said on his show Wednesday. "But I can't believe these people would come out afterward and their answer to Orlando is to take away guns from the public. It's [expletive] mind blowing to me."
The Blaze reported
on Stern's comments and included audio, which contains strong language.
Stern furthered his argument by comparing the American public to sheep, terrorists to wolves and authorities to sheepdogs.
"Now, let's say I walked up literally to a sheep herd, and they know that every night the wolves pick off a couple of them," Stern said. "What if I went up to the sheep and I said, 'You wanna have a shot at the wolves? I'm gonna give you a pistol. You can actually even the playing field with these wolves whose fangs are out — you could shoot them and save your family.'"
Stern then assumed the role of the sheep, comparing them to someone who champions gun control.
"Well, baaaa. We're not gonna do that," he said. "We don't want to fight baaaack. He didn't hurt uuuus. He only hurt the family down the streeet. And the shepherd will protect us, the sheepdogs are out there, they'll protect us."
He then added, "Well, the sheepdogs are protecting you, but some of them can't be with you all day. There's not a sheepdog for every citizen, and a wolf is still eating one of you every night."
Stern summarized by saying, "I don't like violence — I don't like any of this stuff — but I consider myself a sheep, and I want the police to protect me. … But guess what? Most of your politicians … all have private security … So they're OK. Those are sheep that are very well protected. You on the other hand, you're a sitting duck. If you're a sitting duck, do you want a fighting chance or not?"

have called for stricter gun control measures in the days after the Orlando terror attack
