Bill Maher to Democrats: Give It Up on Gun Control


Plenty of Democrats vying for the 2020 nomination falsely believe that gun control is their ticket to the top. Unable to recognize that many registered Democrats are not particularly thrilled with the party’s reckless approach to firearm confiscation, they risk turning off a lot of voters – especially those who went for Trump in the last election. That was the concern at the top of Bill Maher’s mind on Friday. He warned Democrats that they should pace themselves on gun control, lest they put themselves behind an issue that will ensure President Trump a second term in office.

During a panel discussion on his HBO “Real Time” show, Maher said there were a handful of issues on which Democrats were ahead of Republicans, including health care and education. However, he said, when it came to gun control, Democrats were lagging behind the conservatives.

“I don’t like guns. Have some, don’t like them, have it for [an] emergency, like an antibiotic,” Maher said. “But some people do. Lots of people do and their view is, ‘Yes there is a violence problem with guns, but not me. And you’re going after me.'”

What a refreshing point of view from a liberal. This is exactly what we’ve been saying for years. You can pass all the restrictive gun laws you want, and the only people you’re hurting are the ones who don’t give a damn about your laws in the first place. Homicide is already illegal. Mass murder is already illegal. What are you accomplishing by passing more restrictions on the Second Amendment other than punishing law-abiding gun owners who don’t have a thing to do with these outbreaks of violence? This is the unfair, idiotic paradox that makes the left’s gun control push not only unconstitutional but illogical as well.

“We’ve lost elections before on this issue,” Maher warned, “which is not a winning issue for Democrats.”

Maher was talking to liberals like New York Times columnist Charles Blow and Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA), though, so naturally he got some pushback.

“What is the option though, not to make it a central part of the campaign?” Blow asked.

“No,” Maher replied. “First of all, liberals should learn more about guns. I don’t know much about guns because, again, I don’t care, I don’t like them, but I hear this from gun people.”

Maher went on to describe a recent interview on CNN in which Cory Booker made a fool of himself trying to avoid the question of what his gun control plan would have done to stop the mass shooting in Virginia Beach.

“Cory Booker took a very long time to be able to answer that question,” Maher said.

Blow said it wasn’t important that Booker’s plan would have done nothing, insisting that it was more essential to crack down on the 30,000 gun deaths per year that unfold in America.

“You’re seriously saying that he shouldn’t be able to answer the question as a politician, ‘How will your plan specifically stop this problem?'” Maher asked. “If you did everything that the Democrats wanted, I still think you would have this problem because it’s much more complicated than just the mass killers or the type of gun. You’re going to be disappointed if you think just doing what they want gun-wise is gonna solve it.”

Maher is as anti-Trump as they come, and he has no love lost for Republicans, but he’s still head and shoulders above your average libtard when it comes to actually thinking for himself. If Democrats had any brains about them at all, they would spend more time listening to him and less time listening to the Michael Bloombergs of the world.

  1. I agree with Mr Maher, the people making the most noise about this subject know the least about the subject in general. Let the facts speak for themselves with any politics involved and even the stupid can understand the truth.

  2. He owns guns but is behind the Democrats/Leftists/Liberals/Socialists who are For Gun Control, What part of this don’t I understand. If the Democrats/Leftists/Liberals/Socialists really want to do something about Guns, come up with a plan to take the guns away from the Criminals. I have a gun for the sole purpose of protecting my home and family from break ins. Stop the people who are breaking into people’s homes and I will gladly get rid of my gun.

  3. “issues on which Democrats were ahead of Republicans, including health care and education” National Assessment of Educational Progress says only 36% of fourth graders are proficient at reading – after the Democrats have had a stranglehold on education for decades. Math achievement is abysmal. They oppose beneficial charter schools, support Head Start that has been demonstrated to have no educational benefit and promote a mix of motivated proficient pupils with ones pathologically averse to learning anything in the same classes. The promote Single Payer, which is national VA/Obamacare and is so popular it was probably the greatest reason they lost Senate, House, states and Presidency. All their plans are as bad as their Criminal Job Safety program they call “sensible gun laws”.

  4. Maher is right, (this time). Good advice to democrat/socialists/liberals. But why does he say democrats are ahead on healthcare and education? Is he referring to Obamacare, a program that has failed most Americans, or that they want free healthcare for all, even illegals? And what is he referring to about education? I’ve not heard much about it from the left on this issue. And what about abortion? That’s a very big issue that will sink the left. There are many Democrats and some Liberals who don’t necessarily like President Trump but they voted for him and will vote again in 2020 because they like what he’s doing. Maher is a very smart liberal who makes no bones about not liking the president, but he is not that smart as long as he bands together w/democrats who in reality are now socialists. Democrats of today are NOT our grandparents democrats anymore. They believed in the Constitution, the country, and the people. New democrat/socialists couldn’t care less about any of this, they only want power and control.

  5. The only intelligent words i’ve heard from Maher!
    He did make Adam Schiff look like the douche bag he is a few weeks ago. Make no mistake though, he is a full on lunatic liberal dimwit.

  6. EVERY SINGLE MASS SHOOTING TAKES PLACE IN A GUN FREE ZONE, THATS WHERE THE LIBTARDS NEED TO START.# JUST SAY NO TO SOCIALISM, LIBTARDS & THE PARTY OF DEATH

  7. The damned Demoncrats want to punish decent, honest citizens for the acts of the criminals. They are going to make all of the citizens defenseless. The criminals will still have their guns. The Demoncrats are incapable of a logical thought process! By the way, last I heard, gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg has 17 armed body guards but he wants the rest of us to be defenseless! Answer up Bloomberg!

  8. Maher is right that is not a popular subject to a lot of democrats and nearly all republicans, you will never control guns, people will never give up their guns, we the people has learned alot from past history tyranny will not be accepted in this country again from democrats, liberals, independents or republicans. I just dont understand why the parties cant work together, and make this a greater country than she already is. The pay is the same or close to it even if the party you stand for is not in the white house, and if that is the case than its nothing but pure greed, wanting the power to make you do what they want, as ive been listening to the news, not just fox but other broadcasting networks over the past six months the democrats have been pushing to abolish the declaration of independence, electoral college, add more supreme court justices, more gun laws, ban certain types of guns.and so on.
