The ladies of The View are all in on the AR-15 being outlawed in this country and Whoopi made that clear yesterday when she said the AR-15 “has got to go!”
Here’s more from Newsbusters:
They’re coming for your guns. That’s a matter of fact at this point. And that intention was again announced on ABC’s The View on Tuesday, as co-host Whoopi Goldberg declared that AR-15s have “got to go” and that “I don’t want all your guns. I want that AR-15. I want it.” And despite the evidence to the contrary, co-host Sara Haines tried to gaslight viewers by claiming the slippery slope of gun-grabbing doesn’t exist.
“Listen, this AR-15’s got to go,” Goldberg proclaimed to the agreement of the rest of the liberal cast, and faux conservative Tara Setmayer. “I don’t care NRA, you’ve got to give that gun up. You can have your other yee-haw guns, whatever you want.”
Playing to the long-debunked falsehood that the Second Amendment was only about hunting, she whined “the AR-15 is not a hunting gun. It’s not a gun where you’re going to go out and shoot your dinner.” “It’s a weapon of war,” co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in seemingly unaware that knives are also used in war.
Goldberg then contrasted it to abortion in a tit-for-tat argument:
That’s what it’s for. You can’t have it anymore. I’m not even going to tell you how pissed I am that so many folks are saying, “well you can’t have what you need for your body.” Forget my body, you can’t have this gun because it kills people and children. And I’m sick of it.
Backing up Goldberg, Haines proved that she lives in a liberal bubble and has never actually conversed with a serious Second Amendment supporter. “I haven’t never yet heard even a pro-gun person explain to me why these are something that we need to have in our houses, how that is at all constitutionally protected by the Second Amendment,” she huffed.
Further on Haines’s ignorance, she denied the existence of the slippery slope for gun-grabbing. “Well, we know firsthand, from 1994 to 2004, as you [co-host Sunny Hostin] mentioned, we had that ban and it expired. And it wasn’t a slippery slope no one came for your other weapons. So that’s a dead point,” she bitterly proclaimed.
These women on The View are simply gaslighting people for no reason. Let’s just play this out for a second.
Whoopi claims she doesn’t want all our guns, just the AR-15. And if she and her gun-grabbing colleagues get their way and Democrats ban it like they did before, does she honestly believe that there won’t be any more school shootings? There will be and they will just use handguns.
The worst school shooting in American history was perpetrated with two handguns, a 9mm Glock and a .22-caliber Walther P22. Thirty-two people were killed in that 2007 Virginia Tech massacre and there wasn’t an AR-15 in sight.
So what then, is Whoopi going to demand that all 9mm handguns be outlawed? That’s the slippery slope that does exist and these women are fools to pretend it doesn’t.
This argument is ridiculous because the AR-15 isn’t the problem. The gun isn’t the problem. Securing our schools is the only thing that can stop this from happening.
And by the way, if I were to go hunting I wouldn’t have a problem using an AR-15. If it can kill a human, it can easily kill a reasonably sized animal for dinner. The argument that you can’t use an AR-15 for hunting is preposterous in my mind. Are there better guns for hunting? Probably. But sometimes you just take the only gun you have and if that’s an AR-15, then it will do the job.
