Republicans Are Insane and Sick Because They Love Guns
Tea Party ^ | April 6, 2014 | Meadiaite

Posted on 04/06/2014 4:53:12 PM PDT by progunner

Bill Maher appeared on Fusion’s America with Jorge Ramos this week, and at one point the host brought up the rumor he heard that Maher owns a gun. After confirming that it’s true, Maher said the difference between him and conservative gun owners in America is that he doesn’t “love” his gun, he just keeps it on hand in case of an emergency.

“Of course, I think the Republicans are insane about guns,” Maher told Ramos, “because they love guns, which is a sick position to have in the first place, to love something like a gun? I don’t love my gun, I have it the way I have, maybe, you know, antibiotics. It’s not something I love, it’s something in case of an emergency that I might have to use.”

What he would “love,” Maher said would be for the Democratic Party to challenge the right on guns and go “directly after” the Second Amendment. “One party loves guns and one party likes guns a lot,” he added. “It’s ridiculous.”

Maher also said he doesn’t think his views on religion will be changing at all as he gets older, saying, “I would hate to be the kind of coward who, on his death bed all of a sudden said, “Oh gosh, yes, suddenly I believe in ghosts.”

Wow Bill,,,, my wife, daughters and I will be crying ourselves to sleep tonight because an icon of your caliber and stature called us sick and insane. Your opinion is so shapely to the entire world and we all just sit in front of the TV sets anxiously waiting for further communique from you with all it's brilliancy. You are so gifted in the realm of metaphysical philosophy that it is unfathomable. Did you ever consider becoming a professional mentor? because you seriously suck as a comedian.

Well, Bill... guns can help protect you IN REAL TIME (whereas the police can usually only respond later to write up a report and maybe help the coroner remove your body?)

...guns can also help protect any family you may have

....guns can also protect your neighbors....

and finally, guns help protect America from someone (not saying who) seizing or using power illegally or improperly, taking away your liberties (such as the right to keep and bear arms, but also your right to faith, your job in the press, your right against unreasonable searches and seizures, your right against ex post facto laws, etc and etc.)

So, Bill, guns can be pretty good little things...
(far more useful than, say, the BoobToob I watched you on...)

What’s wrong with me anyway? I’m no longer a Republican but I still “love” guns and “hate” illegal invaders, their DemocRAT massas, phonyass “gay marriages”, voter fraud and “smart” phone users who don’t watch where the hell they’re going.

So guns in the hands of liberals are good, but guns in the hands of conservatives are bad. Last time I checked, liberal Democrats are responsible for the last several mass murders in the US.

He is sick in the head like all liberals. How about when he went on a rant about how brave the 911 hijackers were. He actually took umbrage at the fact that they were called cowards.

Here's why he thinks we're insane: It's not just because we want to have guns for ourselves, it's because we want him to have one too. He doesn't understand.

Let's set aside the fact that he's being a hypocrite. Is there anybody here who thinks Bill Maher shouldn't be allowed to have a gun? I think he should, as many as he wants.

Why do I love firearms?

I love my wife, and if one or more Obama voters attack her, firearms can and will help me to protect my wife. On my own, I’m an aging man, in good shape for my age but no match for multiple MMA-trained teens.

I love my children, and if one or more Obama voters attack them, firearms can and will help me to protect my children. I don’t move as fast as I used to, but a .308 still moves at close to 3,000 feet per second. Even at my best I was a whole lot slower than that, perhaps too slow.

I love my country. I took an Oath to protect my country against all enemies foreign and domestic. If an enemy of freedom tries to destroy America, firearms can and will help me to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.

What’s not to love? In a world full of parasites (i.e., liberals and others who do not respect private property), guns protect everything that matters.

When liberals act contrary to the party line, it is perfectly acceptable. Liberalism should be listed on the American Psychiatric Association list as a mental disorder.

Well, Bill, I love anti-biotics. They saved my life more than once - sort of why I love guns.

The problem with the liberal left is that firearms - in their twisted minds - represent the apogee of white Christian male dominance in the world.

I have two personal accounts how my gun saved lives. Both times involved thugs taking an acute interest in me. Both times said thugs we’re spared their lives by me simply brandishing as they retreated. (now, who they went on to harass or otherwise harm is not for me to say).
My stories are but a couple in millions (probably annually). If more and more citizens started to carry, we would have less and less thugs and lawlessness. BUT, that doesn’t bode well for the left’s narrative and their lust for control of the law abiding citizen.
I always like to ask gun-grabbers what is being done to get the criminal dis-armed. Why do they always go after the people not breaking any laws. Why are they cuddling up to criminals all the time by trying to deny legal citizens the right to defend themselves? I do so because I take great joy in witnessing mental gymnastics for the logically challenged. It is a fun sport but ultimately with no real results.

So...he has “a” gun for a just-in-case, but wants the Democrat Party to eliminate the Second Amendment so they will take it away.

Or does he think he’ll be able to keep the gun because he’s special?

Or is he seriously twisted?

My Life had stood - a Loaded Gun -
In Corners - till a Day
The Owner passed - identified -
And carried Me away -
And now We roam in Sovereign Woods -
And now We hunt the Doe -
And every time I speak for Him -
The Mountains straight reply -

And do I smile, such cordial light
Upon the Valley glow -
It is as a Vesuvian face
Had let its pleasure through -

And when at Night - Our good Day done -
I guard My Master’s Head -
‘Tis better than the Eider-Duck’s
Deep Pillow - to have shared -

To foe of His - I’m deadly foe -
None stir the second time -
On whom I lay a Yellow Eye -
Or an emphatic Thumb -

Though I than He - may longer live
He longer must - than I -
For I have but the power to kill,
Without—the power to die—

—Emily Dickinson

While I defend the “right to bear arms”, I was never a gun nut. When I bought a farm in west Tennessee, I also bought a 22 rifle to shoot varmints. I did have to use it once when a mad dog killed a few cats. Later, A neighbor insisted that I keep a 380 hand gun that he gave to me. It stayed on a closest shelf for some years before I gave it back to him.
I can not imagine a life where I feel the necessity to be armed, as in the old wild west.

I confess, I am quite fond of my guns. A morning shooting skeet is a good start to any day I have free time. My SKB over & under 12 gage shoots better than my aged eyes and body allow it. A late afternoon with my Browning Citori XT Trap doing two rounds is a pleasure. Summer bullseye pistol league is a weekly dance with my S&W 41 .22.

I care for my guns with frequent applications of patches soaked with Break-Free CLP.

(Maher) "wants the Democrat Party to eliminate the Second Amendment"

Oh, how I PRAY that the democrats introduce the amendment to eliminate the 2nd.

Can you imagine? The dems would never win another election.

Even some die-hard pinkos "love" their guns.

IIRC, Spielberg has a good collection.

Didn't Sean Penn have a sizeable collection that he agreed to give up to appease his sweetie?

How he was allowed to have a gun is a mystery though. Pretty sure he has a felony conviction.

Instead I grab one of our 1911's, walk out in back and take aim at bowling pins. This family is heavily into bowling pin matches. Do we love guns in this home???? OH HELL YES!!!!

This is another Alinsky tactic to demonize Republicans. I would bet Maher sleeps with his gun under his pillow. If Maher is not loving his gun, he is at least paranoid without it.

Please do not put words in my mouth. I have NO objection to you, or any lawful citizen, arming yourself to the max.
It is, however, sad that America is coming to this.
Never in my 69 years did I know anyone that felt the need to be armed.
