Or, as Bob Owens notes. Bloomberg’s group has even lost The View!
You don’t typically find a more left-leaning group than the cast of The View, but even this group of ladies saw the most recent Everytown For Gun Safety ad spot as a strong argument for woman to be armed.
Geoffrey Dickens at Newbusters has the transcript of the segment, which shows three of the four ladies (Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy and guest-host Juliet Huddy) coming out strongly in favor of women learning how to use firearms, and having safely stored firearms in the home to defend their families.
Even more remarkably, Shepherd and McCarthy attempted to convert Good Morning America co-host Lara Spencer to the side of gun ownership, after she revealed herself as the one lady on the panel who was didn’t want to have a firearm in her home.
Everytown tried to ]make a video further demonizing guns and ended up making an incredibly powerful video that illustrates how a woman is far better to defend herself if she is armed and prepared
LARA SPENCER: I have two kids. I would never want a gun in the house.
JENNY MCCARTHY: I’ve been in circumstances like Sherri where, you know people tried to break in and I’m with my son going, “I wish I had something to protect myself with.”
SHERRI SHEPHERD: I think that’s the thing when you’re standing there and if you’ve ever been in that situation where you have children and you go what do I have?
MCCARTHY to SPENCER: I used to think like you.
SHEPHERD to SPENCER: I used to think like you too. When you’re sitting there going-
SPENCER to MCCARTHY: What changed you?
MCCARTHY: That happened to me. They were trying to get in and I felt out of control and I had a child, and I was thinking to myself I wish I had a gun and I wish, you know, I have it very well protected now. There’s no way. Locked up.
SHEPHERD: Locked up, go to the gun range, know how to use it. There was a man who broke into a woman’s house. She was up in the attic. She had her two twins. He, as soon as he put his face in the attic she shot him. I betcha he’ll never try to break into that woman’s house again.
Keep up the good work, there Everytown
