S.E. Cupp and Michael Moore get Sweaty on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher

Recently on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher,  Bill had the very liberal Michael Moore and the very conservative S.E. Cupp.  I knew as soon as the conversation switched to Gun Control sparks would fly but I was more surprised to hear how obtuse the Right Wing Poster Girl’s argument was on Gun Registration.  I really don’t understand the logic in her thoughts.  S.E. Cupp, the very attractive conservative that tries to fool you into thinking she is smart by wearing glasses on her quite perfect face when, in fact, it only makes her look like every boy’s fantasy of their perfect librarian in a Playboy Magazine fantasy, actually said she feels that registering her gun(s) makes her feel like and I quote, ” a criminal”.  Hmmm, now how many criminals do you hear about that REGISTER THEIR WEAPONS???  This shows exactly what we all have long felt from the right wing politicos that they feel they should do what they want when they want and how ever they want without any accountability or responsibility to the rest of the citizens of this country.  I see articles and posts of how Ms. Cupp schooled Michael Moore on the stats of mass shootings but I don’t see anyone stepping up and challenging her on this ridiculous notion that gun owners shouldn’t register their weapons in case they are stolen or lost and then used in a crime so we can track it down from step one and follow the trail to the ACTUAL CRIMINAL!

Why do most if not all of the Right Wing gun owners think this way?  It’s quite disturbing to think that most if not all mass shootings are done by RIGHT WING EXTREMISTS and the same club that those nut jobs are linked to do not want to be linked to their own guns.  Then why register your vehicle and when it gets stolen just throw up your arms(with hands) and say, “Oh well guess I’ll just buy another car…Touche’. ”  In fact lets just stop registering everything…including with whom we MARRY.  That’s right, lets stop registering who we decide to love and spend the rest of our lives with (or a few weeks if you are a celebrity) that way no one will know on any database just who it is we have living with us and sharing are our lives.  The Conservative Right wants to make sure just those that they approve of get married but we as a whole or 90% of the country to be exact want a Gun Registration and Background Checks but we don’t matter, just the ones that lost the last two elections do.  The Right Wing Conservatives are attacking and want to impeach President Obama over Benghazi yet they kept quiet and still do over the 13 Embassy attacks during George W. Bush’s 8 years in office.  Oh yeah, there’s nothing fishy about those 13 Embassy attacks but that one under Obama, now that one was just unacceptable!

Lastly I would like to speak on the point that Fox News and the Conservatives are having a boner over.  Yes that fact is that mass shootings are on the decline even though there just was one in New Orleans last weekend during a Mother’s Day Parade.  How about we change the opponent you tell that fact to.  How about you stand in front of the families of the dead and the survivors of the Aurora Colorado shootings?  How about you give those statistics to families of those children killed in the Sandy Hook shootings?  And after you tell them not to worry, the shootings are going down….they are less and less every year.  I bet you all of the Gold in Fort Knox that they could give two shits about your stupid statistics because there are no statistics that you can show them that will bring their amazing and beautiful children back.  It wouldn’t matter if Columbine never happened, nor Aurora or any of the other school shootings that have happen in the years passed.  Even if nothing terrible had happened in the 20 years before December 14, 2013, nothing else matters but to protect our citizens and their children so it doesn’t happen again.  And if registering your gun is that small step that you can take to make sure you did what was right in case your gun gets stolen or lost or if allowing yourself to get a background check to make sure that others that try to buy a gun are not in fact mentally ill or have an ACTUAL criminal past…..then why not?  I feel those that do not want a registry or background checks are hiding something and those that speak out about not wanting that to happen should be moved to the top of the scrutiny list.

Now as I know that Ms. Cupp is actually very smart, I don’t completely mean to use her political sides antics against them but I am just appalled that someone her age wouldn’t be able to see through her elders’ antics of the past.  Its time there is a Right Wing Talking Head that uses their common sense.  Let there be a day that I can write or say that last sentence without hearing a sarcastic chuckle in my head that exclaims, “OXYMORON!”

Here’s the bottom line…if I can not get a $7.25 an hour job without getting a background check and then being “approved” to ask you for your Speedy card, then you shouldn’t own a weapon unless you get a background check as well.

Panic at the NRA and Gun owners Disco, We don’t want your handguns!!!

I am getting a little sick of the mass hysteria of the NRA and the other gun owners thinking Obama and the liberals want ALL of their guns!  Like Balky from Perfect Strangers would say, “Well of course not, Don’t be RidiculOOS!”

Let’s make this abundantly clear : You can have your handguns and your hunting rifles BUT give up and stop selling MILITARY STYLE WEAPONS such as ASSAULT RIFLES AND STOP PROVIDING 100 ROUND CLIPS!!!  This diversion of the facts and the truth is giving me a GOP headache that’s reminiscent of the Romney/Ryan campaign.  Seriously, this has got to stop!

The weapons that killed the men, women and children in the movie theater in Colorado and that killed the women and children in Newtown Connecticut were military style assault rifles!  Not handguns!  The shooters had way too much ammo, 100 round clips, that should not be legal for anyone that is NOT in the military.  The hand gun that was used in Newtown was used to kill Adam Lanza.  I have nothing against that handgun.

Please, lets not get fooled into thinking that ALL of our guns are going to be collected….Just the ones that are made for mass destruction, that’s all.  You don’t need armor piercing bullets because deers don’t wear bullet proof vests…..you don’t need assault rifles with 100 round clips because those deers and wildlife you want to shoot are not assaulting you.

It’s time to get real!  Stop the panic, it’s not real!  I have a feeling that 2013 is going to bring a lot of change but, unfortunately, I think along with that change will bring a lot of resistance to that change by old institutions and old thinking.  I hope common sense will come out on top, actually I know it will but unfortunately, I think it will come with more heartache due to those that can not evolve.
