Conservative Hollywood actor Kevin Sorbo suggested he’d pass on gun lectures from the administration that less than a year ago helped ‘arm’ the Taliban.
The “Hercules” and “Let There Be Light” star suggested the Biden White House could save their breath on gun safety speeches or sermons.
“I don’t need the administration that armed the Taliban lecturing me on gun safety,” he tweeted Tuesday.
Sorbo’s comment is a reference to the nearly billions of dollars in military equipment and training costs provided to security forces in Afghanistan since 2001, much of which was reportedly left behind after Biden’s disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal.
White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan admitted that “certainly a fair amount of it has fallen into the hands of the Taliban.”
The actual number though has been disputed in part because the figure includes the cost of training and housing Afghan police over a 20-year presence in the country.

Sorbo’s ‘gun safety’ comments come following a deadly school shooting in Uvalde, Texas that claimed the lives of 21 people – including 19 elementary-aged children.
It also comes just weeks after Democrats, who were apoplectic about their ‘right’ to abort babies, suddenly have decided pro-gun Republicans must not care about children if they defend their constitutional rights.
Sorbo offered up further commentary about the gun debate following the Uvalde tragedy.
“Last week the left said ‘If you ban abortions people will just get them illegally,’” he tweeted. “Now they want to ban guns? Won’t people just get them illegally then? How dare you politicize a tragedy to push your idiotic agenda.”
In another, he urged Americans not to “let people who surround themselves with armed security tell you that YOU can’t own a firearm to defend yourself.”

Not only is the administration that helped ‘arm’ the Taliban now lecturing on alleged gun violence, they’re spreading loads of misinformation on the topic.
President Biden has consistently promoted the false claim that the Second Amendment never allowed for cannon ownership.
Biden just repeated his false statement about the Second Amendment again,. https://t.co/bRc3OwoNIW It does not seem to matter to the President that this is a false claim about the history of the Second Amendment. One could even call it disinformation. https://t.co/RuueKPpXyZ

In addition to the cannon screed, the President offered up other incredible statements like suggesting that a 9mm handgun is a “high-caliber weapon” in which a bullet “blows the lung out of the body.”
Neither, according to experts, is true.
Joe Biden suggests he wants to ban “high caliber” 9mm handguns.

Biden has also suggested high-powered firearms are not necessary for the common folk because ‘deer don’t have Kevlar vests.’
You may recall that Biden served as Vice President under Barack Obama and that administration also brought you Fast and Furious.
That scandal involved running guns to Mexico which were then lost and used by drug cartels.
One was used in the shooting death of border patrol agent Brian Terry, while others turned up at the scenes of violent crimes in Phoenix, as well as at least 11 other violent crimes across the country.
So yea, I’m with Sorbs on this one. Biden can save his little gun lectures for people who don’t know about his past in helping arm terrorist organizations and drug cartels.
Now is the time to support and share the sources you trust.
