Joy Behar: Democrats Should Wait Until After the Election to Take Your Guns Away

When it comes to pushing gun control on Americans, “The View” co-host Joy Behar has some advice for 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls.

During Monday’s segment of the show, Behar suggested that 2020 hopefuls not put a lot of focus on taking guns away from Americans until after the election, if they become president.

After co-host Meghan McCain discussed how O’Rourke’s stance on gun buyback received criticism from some Democrats, Behar said, “They should not tell everything they’re going to do. Like, if you’re going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected then take the guns away.”

“Don’t tell them ahead of time,” Behar added, prompting laughter. McCain, however, responded, “That’s what people like me think they’re going to do. […] So I appreciate his honesty.”

Behar’s comments come as the co-hosts discussed the end of former Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s (D-Texas) presidential campaign — who dropped out of the race on November 1.

O’Rourke had a gun plan to keep “weapons of war on the battlefield by not only banning the sale of assault weapons, but implementing a mandatory buyback of every single one of them,” as his campaign website reads. O’Rourke was vocal about his mandatory gun buyback plan.

2020 Democratic hopeful Cory Booker is another candidate that supports mandatory gun buyback. As IJR previously reported, Booker was recently pressed on the show by McCain about his plan.

Watch the video below:

Among other 2020 Democrats, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) supports an assault weapons ban. Additionally, former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and mayor of South Bend, Ind., Pete Buttigieg, among others, support a voluntary gun buyback plan.

does this woman get paid for her “on going” dumb comments… suspect that is her handle!


Like I’ve said in prior POST is,
Joyless going to each and every door to collect them?
I love to see that!
Then I wonder how long before she receives the business end of the deal?


Apparently there are many democrats that either don’t know or don’t care that attempting to take our guns without changing the Constitutional Second Amendment WILL cause a civil war. If it starts, any leftist that pushed for the gun control would have to leave the country, in disguise, by way of the nearest border, as fast as possible. Anyone taking them out would become a hero of the civil war. (Not now, any of you idiots, AFTER the civil war starts)

Yes joy tell us how you want them to be literal liars like they already are, but keep all their crazy shit to themselves until they grasp power. Then it’s time to remove the mask and abuse the power you just obtained. I don’t say this we’ll ever but I wouldn’t be saddened in the slightest if this lady was shot dead leaving the studio. She’s a meance to society and honestly just a hate monger who like to wear the costume of something else.


Liberals/Democrats always think the same way. You have rights only if you agree with them. I hope Confused and Syphilis are the first ones through the door.

Makes no difference to me, before or after. I’m looking forward to meeting the guy who thinks he can.
