Skip to comments.Bill Maher Tears Into Liberals For Not Standing Up On Guns: Too Afraid To Say ‘2nd Amendment Is BS’
Posted on 04/13/2013 5:09:28 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Bill Maher opened up the panel discussion on his show tonight talking about recent developments on gun control in the Senate.
He lamented how liberals have basically conceded the gun argument to the center-right, saying that liberals to a certain degree also indulge in the fetishization of guns, and declaring that someone on the left needs to stand up and say that the Second Amendment is bs.
Former Reagan budget director David Stockman found it amusing that anyone would think having an 18th century citizen militia armed with muskets somehow has anything to do with liberty. He said that the real shield for liberty is the first amendment, not the second.

Hitler’s Nazis and Stalin’s commies thought that the Second Amendment was BS too. Probably just a coincidence. Bill Maher sounds like he has a problem with freedom and liberty. He’s probably a big slavery supporter.
This is actually good. I want them to just come out and say they want to repeal the second. Let them try. It is their true intention.
they were armed with the most modern firearms at’the time, same as the british soldiers. that’s the point of the second amendment, citizens can be armed at the same level as government. the second amendment is why cops and military can have weapons, their powers are derived from the people and the states.
Well heck, they’ve admitted just this week that gays should get infertility treatments paid for by us, and that the government owns our kids....
Why is david stockman everywhere lately? I couldn’t stand that sanctimonious puke when he worked for Ronaldus Magnus and his statement on the 2nd Amendment give me more reason to hate his stinkin’ RINO guts.
Why hasn’t this POS OD’d yet?
Bill Whathisface is bovine excrement!!!!!!!!!!!
I agree. At least he is more honest with his intentions than Obama, who makes passing comments that he supports the 2nd Ammendment while then doing everything he possibly can to infringe that right.
At least Mahr is being honest. For a liberal anyway.
It just doesn’t get any sorrier than Bill Maher, well maybe that Dr. who is murdering babies by the bushel but I am sure Maher just wishes he could do the same.
Come and get mine Bill.
I would find it refreshing if liberals would be more honest about their intentions. Admit that they think we should get rid of the 2nd Amendment. Admit that they think we should get rid of the constitution for that matter. And admit that they hate America, for the love of Pete.
The first amendment is meaningless if a mob can come over and burn your house with impunity over something you wrote.
My 2nd amendment rights in a way, are specifically for use in case of Bill Maher.
Another bowel movement from BM.
I don’t trust the federal government WITH the 2nd amendment in place. Eliminating the 2nd Amendment would ultimately be the same as giving away everything I ever worked for and every opportunity my children will ever have. Why can’t these libtard commie pukes see that?
That people are inclined to say that Second Amendment is bs. only confirms that it is needed.
Yeah Mahar, the 2nd Amendment is BS..thats why you walk around with armed security guards and your HBO show has armed security..So Bill, if you hate guns so much..disarm your armed guards..come on I double dog dare you to!
He's hawing his new book The Great Deformation: The Corruption of Capitalism in America.
He actually gave a very interesting and insightful interview on WSJ last week and made a tremendous amount of sense about the coming economic collapse. That will resonate with most here on FR. Check out Sundown in America. Subscription may be required.
These people are quite obnoxious because they feel protected by the state and don’t care if the ordinary person is left defenseless against criminals, foreign invaders, and domestic tyrants.
The First Amendment, as well as the rest of the Bill of Rights, is a glorious achievement in the political history of man. However, the Bill of Rights mean nothing without the teeth of 2nd Amendment. The 2nd Amendment ensures that the common citizen can defend himself against anyone threatening all of his or hers other natural rights.
