It also wasn’t ironic that Kelly and Giffords, who overnight became the country’s two most famous gun-control advocates, are honest enough to admit that they both own guns. Giffords, as was widely reported before she was shot, owns a semi-automatic Glock similar to the one used by her assailant.
This is rich. The country’s premier face of gun control has her own gun. Next, consider David Codrea on Bill Maher on guns.
“The NRA should just change its name to the assassin’s lobby, because that’s what they are” TV personality Bill Maher told Tonight Show host Jay Leno on Tuesday when asked about his take on the Tucson shootings (watch segment in sidebar media player).
“I’m so tired of hearing about the Second Amendment and the Constitution,” he continued.
“If you love guns, just admit it — like it’s a vice. It’s like alcohol or drugs or sex addiction or gambling… It’s not good for you or anyone else, but you like it.”
Nice. Good, responsible men and women who as a matter of course exhibit self control are equated with degenerates who exercise none. Typical.
Finally, look who else owns a gun.
Appearing on Conan last night, Bill Maher said that enacting gun-control legislation would have little effect because Democrats are as attached to guns as Republicans. Even though he favors universal background checks and placing a limit on clip sizes, Maher, who said in the interview that he is a gun owner, concluded, “it’s not really going to change much in this country.”
Gun control for thee but not for me. Hypocrisy is always fun for the special people.
