The talking heads on the left are getting more extreme.
Even so-called mainstream outlets sound like unhinged extremists.
Now Joy Behar of The View thinks you have a “mental illness” for owning a gun.
Perhaps no television program is more loyal in spouting the talking points of the Democratic Party than The View.
The hosts, including the RINOs on show, repeat whatever the DNC says.
Lately, Democrats have been banging the gun for more gun control after they couldn’t find a narrative to politicize in light of horrific mass shootings in California.
If the Democrats blame Republicans for being racist, sexist, or homophobic, they just fall back on calling Republicans gun nuts.
And Joy Behar of The View suggested that gun owners have a “mental illness.”
Behar said, “It’s like – There’s like a mental illness going on in the country that has to be stopped immediately. And I believe that Joe Biden is trying to do something, but it runs up against these people who are getting money from the gun lobby and who want to keep that going. It’s disgraceful.”
There are so many things wrong with this.
First, Democrats never want to talk about actual mental health problems that mass shooters possess because they can’t credibly attack Republicans on that footing.
Next, when Joe Biden isn’t threatening Americans with F-16s, he’s proposing “assault” weapons bans that do nothing.
Also, Behar fell back on the cliché of blaming the nefarious “gun lobby,” which is a laughable argument.
That would suggest that Democrats only support abortion because Planned Parenthood and the “abortion lobby” pay them off.
People support gun groups because they want their gun rights protected.
Finally, Behar thinks it’s “disgraceful” that Americans want to defend and exercise their Second Amendment rights.
Dishonest Democrats will say they don’t want to take away guns; they just want “commonsense” gun laws.
But then they propose laws that are already on the books that are ignored by criminals, or laws that would do nothing but punish law-abiding gun owners.
Honest Democrats will admit they just want to abolish the Second Amendment.
New York Times columnist Charles Blow confessed, “The truth that no one wants to tell — the one that opponents of gun safety laws understand and the reason so many of them resist new laws — is that no one law or single package of laws will be enough to solve America’s gun violence problem. The solution will have to be a nonstop parade of laws, with new ones passed as they are deemed necessary, ad infinitum…”
They want to chip away at gun rights “ad infinitum” until the Second Amendment is either a dead letter, or has been repealed.
Behar and the Democrats are not going to stop demanding gun control measures no matter how ineffective they are.
And the most frustrating aspect about it is that they are completely ignorant on the topic of guns, and that starts with Biden himself.
