It seems most Hollywood actors think the guns they use during their movies are available on the street and it’s not the case.
GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul recently appeared on The View, after President Obama’s recent gun control speech and the issue of automatic guns came up by liberal Whoopi Goldberg.
“Automatic weapons, they’re not for hunting. They do nothing — they’re only there to kill. And you’ll notice that a lot of things that happened are with automatic weapons,” she claimed to Paul. “When we see that why don’t we say, ‘Who really needs to have one other than people that are at war?’”
As most of you could see, Goldberg doesn’t know anything about the law or legislation where it says citizens can’t own automatic weapons manufactured after 1986. The audience, who likely shares political views with Whoopi, erupted in applause. Then Paul corrected Whoopi to let her know that truly automatic weapons are not generally available to the public without a tax stamp and federal background check.
Blind and deaf liberals in the audience, who likely share political views with Whoopi, erupted in applause. Then Paul corrected Whoopi to let her know that truly automatic weapons are not generally available to the public without a tax stamp and federal background check.
Rand then points out that Whoopi is likely talking about semi-automatic firearms, which only fire one shot per pull of the trigger. He also points out that people do hunt and compete in shooting sports with semi-automatic rifles.
Rand also pointed out that it’s not necessarily the background checks themselves that many gun owners object to, it’s the fact that to truly enforce universal background checks you would need a national gun registry, which is opposed by most gun owners.

Did you see Whoopi still had to have the last word and continue to push the lie of automatic guns on the street? Unbelievable! What are your thoughts about this segment and do you think Rand Paul represented well?
