The View: ‘Easier’ to Buy an AR than Beer, Anti-CRT Parents Don’t Care

Breaking News

We’ve reached that point in the anti-gun-rights hysteria where the liberal media are just making up and pumping out blatantly false and easily disprovable claims about guns and gun laws in America. On Wednesday’s edition of The View, co-host Whoopi Goldberg continued her anti-AR-15 crusade by claiming that it’s “easier” for someone to get an AR than “a glass of beer at a bar.” Co-host Sunny Hostin also chimed in to claim parents against Critical Race Theory don’t care if their kids are shot.

Following a montage of clips of conservatives blaming societal ills for mass shootings at the top of the show, Goldberg scoffed: “The issue is that there is an assault weapon out there that people can put their hands on.”

And according to Goldberg’s warped understanding of reality, “They can put their hands on it easier than they can get a glass of beer in a bar. Kids can get an assault weapon. That’s the issue.”

The fact is, in order to get a gun, one needs to fill out federally-mandated paperwork and pass a background check each time they purchase a firearm. No one needs to pass a background check for each round of drinks they buy. And prices are a barrier to entry; inflation is bad but you’re not paying hundreds of dollars for a pint.

Suggesting gun rights advocates were looking at the facts “through a BS lens,” Goldberg went on a rant divorced from reality proclaiming there was no legitimate reason to own an AR and no one can make such an argument:

And I this will be the last I have to say on it. This weapon, you cannot hunt with it. You cannot go bird hunting with it. It is made to kill and destroy bodies. That’s what it does. That’s what it’s for and, frankly, you can keep all your other guns. You don’t have any reason — none of these people can say, look here, this is why we need to have this gun because they can’t show you because there’s nothing left when you shoot it. Okay?

Well, I guess I’m “none of these people” because there is, in fact, many legitimate reasons for someone to own an AR. They make for great home defense weapons, modern sport shooting, and just generally a fun rifles to go to the range with friends for target shooting (to name a few). And on her repetitive argument that guns are just for hunting and AR’s can’t be used for that: there are AR variants that do shoot larger rounds and are used for hunting. Again, just pure unadulterated ignorance from Goldberg.

“Let’s just start with that,” Goldberg shrieked. “It’s not any of these things, it’s that we have an issue with a gun that should not be in anybody’s hands unless they’re a soldier.”

In the midst of her argument that the issue was “not that there’s no God in the classroom and people’s lives,” co-host Joy Behar made the laughable suggestion that saying “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance meant God was in schools:

BEHAR: It’s in the Pledge of Allegiance, by the way.

WHOOPI: I’m sorry?

BEHAR: I said God is in the Pledge of Allegiance, remember, “under God,” so they’re saying it is out of the classroom. Kids say it every day.

Further on in the show, Hostin lashed out at the parents protesting the racist poison of Critical Race Theory influencing schools by suggesting they didn’t care about their kids getting killed in school shootings. “[T]hey thought that the real danger was discussing race in the classroom … not guns,” she chided.

“Rah, rah, rah and racism and I don’t want my kids to feel like oppressors,” she mocked them before demanding to know “Where are those parents when their kids are being gunned down in classrooms?”

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: The issue is that there is an assault weapon out there that people can put their hands on.

SUNNY HOSTIN: Yeah.

GOLDBERG: They can put their hands on it easier than they can get a glass of beer in a bar. Kids can get an assault weapon. That’s the issue. It’s not if people are smoking too much weed. You know that, Laura [Ingraham]. You should know that. You know? You know, it’s not that there’s no God in the classroom and people’s lives.

JOY BEHAR: It’s in the Pledge of Allegiance, by the way.

WHOOPI: I’m sorry?

BEHAR: I said God is in the Pledge of Allegiance, remember, “under God,” so they’re saying it is out of the classroom. Kids say it every day.

GOLDBERG: It’s not any of those things! You can put it through a BS lens if you want to and keep pretending like you don’t know that we have an issue when an assault weapon –

And I this will be the last I have to say on it. This weapon, you cannot hunt with it. You cannot go bird hunting with it. It is made to kill and destroy bodies. That’s what it does. That’s what it’s for and, frankly, you can keep all your other guns. You don’t have any reason — none of these people can say, look here, this is why we need to have this gun because they can’t show you because there’s nothing left when you shoot it. Okay?

Let’s just start with that. It’s not any of these things, it’s that we have an issue with a gun that should not be in anybody’s hands unless they’re a soldier.

HOSTIN: And I thought these poor — right? These poor parents that went through this, you know, their kids are not only traumatized but they have to go through active drills again.

And the other thing I thought, remember when all the parents were up in arms about CRT – alleged CRT and they thought that the real danger was discussing race in the classroom? That was the real danger, not guns and so I’d like to see that same energy that we saw from all those parents. “Rah, rah, rah and racism and I don’t want my kids to feel like oppressors.” Where are those parents when their kids are being gunned down in classrooms?
