Watch: The Hosts Of ‘The View’ Just Said Some Shocking Things About Guns (It’s Not What You Think)

The View1

In the course of Tuesday’s edition of The View, an astounding three out of four panelists admitted that the most effective way for a woman to protect herself and her children is by owning a gun.

As they discussed an ad created by the gun control group “Everytown for Gun Safety,” they did not agree with the anti-gun message – as one would expect from The View’s liberal leanings – but instead, almost all of the women went the other way, in favor of guns.

ABC Good Morning America co-host Lara Spencer was the odd one out in this scenario, as Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy, and guest co-host Juliet Huddy of Fox News rallied together and shared their real life scenarios that led them to reconsider their anti-gun stance. Shepherd was the first to explain why she now owns a firearm.

Via NewsBusters:

“The flipside is when I was at my home and the alarm went off, and I ran to my son’s bedroom and Jeffrey was crying, and I realized all I had to protect me and somebody coming around that corner was a daggone wicker trash basket.

“And I said to myself and everybody said to me, ‘well get a bat.’ You got one chance to use a bat if they take it away. ‘Get pepper spray.’ You know how close they got to get to you, if you use pepper spray?

“You got one of these? [makes a gesture like she’s holding a gun and makes a sound of cocking a gun] They’re not gonna come near you and your child! So when you’re standing there, and you don’t know how to protect your child? Get a gun in your home!”

Huddy then shared the time she was faced with a stalker: “And I remember feeling so vulnerable. And I just remember constantly going to sleep at night wishing that I could go over and grab my dad’s gun.”

McCarthy had a similar experience to Shepherd as she revealed: “I’ve been in circumstances like Sherri where, you know people tried to break in and I’m with my son going, I wish I had something to protect myself with.”

When Spencer expressed her nervousness that “I have two kids. I would never want a gun in the house,” both Shepherd and McCarthy tried to assuage her fears.

When asked by Spencer, “What changed you?” Mccarthy said the situation changed her, adding, “I have it [the gun] very well protected now. There’s no way. Locked up.”

Whether in favor of gun control or not, no one could dispute a mother’s right to protect her loved ones.

It seems this pro gun control advertisement might have had the opposite of its intended effect on their audience. Oops!
