Bill Maher: ’12 home invasions in my neighborhood, I ain’t giving up my gun’

That’s right, uber-liberal Bill Maher owns a gun. Actually, he admitted to his HBO Real Time panel Friday night that he has two guns, one he keeps upstairs and one down.

Just moments before his confession, he slammed the Second Amendment, calling it “bulls–t” and said the left needs to go after it. Fellow liberal guest Michael Moore agreed. But then Maher made a stunning acknowledgement.

“As long as we live in the gun country, I ain’t giving up my gun,” Maher declared. “There have been twelve home invasions in my neighborhood in the last year.”

“There you go,” conservative guest S. E. Cupp replied.

Moore grilled Maher on the number of times he goes to the shooting range to practice, and after getting answers that weren’t satisfactory, he made a suggestion to Maher.

“Get a dog,” Moore said.

    I guess that sometimes he lives in the real world.

    Hypocrites, they slam the second amendment, try to make themselves look/feel profound, yet they are scared of what is happening in the world around them. Instead of taking the security away from our society, try making it more accessible. Piers Morgan has even FINALLY (only after His own peers were found to be accosted by our bullying government), found that lack of concern against any possibility of freedom loss, can result in tyranny BY YOUR OWN GOVERNMENT!!! It's results are discomforting even to him.

    When I first read this, I hoped for the sake of all that is sane in this world that the clip was taken out of context and he was just making a joke.

    Nope! I lose more and more faith in humanity when I see stuff like this. I mean, how can you go on your own show, say the 2nd Amendment is "bulls***" and then just a few minutes later admit to owning a gun for the purpose of protection? There aren't enough walls in the world to hit my head on to express the full extent of my frustration.

    So Mr. Maher. Are your reasons for owning a gun somehow more sane or less stupid than everybody else? What is the deal here?

    I always took his opinions on gun control with a grain of salt anyway since he has armed security guards. I just laughed at how an uber-rich white guy with armed security is telling me guns are bad. Yeah, OK. I guess only the rich elite can benefit from gun protection in his mind. But now we see that he owns guns himself! What the hell?!?! So you'll only give up your guns when everybody else does? So I guess you'll be owning those guns forever because there will always be gun toting criminals around no matter what legislation is in place.

    For a guy who thinks the 2nd amendment is "bulls***" he sure does take advantage of it way more than I do. (just to be clear, I don't own a single gun).
