Bill Maher has a joke that is not only disgusting, but also reveals that he doesn't have a clue about what stops mass public shootings. From Politico:
Taking a swipe at conservatives on gun control, liberal comic Bill Maher joked that a mass shooting should take place at the Country Music Awards.
“Now that liberals have forwarded their agenda by inserting a mass gay wedding into the Grammys, conservatives must match them tit-for-tat by having a mass shooting at the Country Music Awards,” Maher said Friday during his HBO program, “Real Time with Bill Maher.” . . .
Maher, a vocal proponent of gun control, has frequently lambasted conservatives and the Republican Party on the issue of firearms, having previously called them“gun nuts.” . . .
Yet, here is the problem in a way that Mr. Maher might understand. Where does one think that the odds of a mass public shooting are higher?: a rally for Sarah Palin or Ted Cruz (or a meeting with the type of people who go to the Country Music Awards) or instead of rally of diehard Obama supporters who want to ban guns. If you have a question, here is a discussion about a statement by the head of Interpol that might help explain things. While we wouldn't want an attack to occur in either place, the odds of a law-abiding citizen having a concealed handgun permit is much higher at the rally for Palin or Cruz, and the possibility that someone will be able to stop the attack is also much higher. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the group of liberals.
