Every once in a while, Whoopi Goldberg says the most outrageous things. Remember when she defended child rapist Roman Polanski by saying his drugging, raping, and sodomizing a 13-year-old girl wasn’t “rape-rape“? Now she’s decided that our Second Amendment right to bear arms applies only to militias.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
The liberal hosts of “The View” were well-armed with dubious talking points about gun control and the Second Amendment during a fierce debate Thursday in the wake of Wednesday’s shooting that left House Majority Steve Scalise (R., La.) and four others wounded.
. . . . “I’m not worried about law-abiding citizens carrying guns,” [Jedediah] Bila said. “They don’t make me nervous.”
Host Whoopi Goldberg cut over Bila to ask her if she had been around “afraid people with guns.”
“I have,” Bila said.
“I don’t believe you, Jed. I don’t believe you,” Goldberg said.
“I’m a conservative! They’re a very pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment [group],” Bila said, laughing.
. . . . “If you live in a society where only the police have guns, that’s called a police state,” she said. “That is not the United States of America.”
Goldberg then offered a dubious examination of the Second Amendment.
“The Second Amendment is about a militia,” she said. “That’s what it says.”
It actually says more than that. Its full text reads, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
“It’s the right to bear arms, to protect yourself and your family,” Bila said.
Hostin said quietly that being able to defend one’s self and family was “not what the Second Amendment is about.”
