Whoopi Goldberg: Americans Can Have Their 'Yee-Haw Guns' but AR-15s 'Got to Go'


“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg is calling for AR-15s to be banned, but says she thinks Americans should be able to keep their “yee-haw guns.”

During a segment of the show Tuesday, Goldberg said, “Listen, this AR-15’s got to go. I’m sorry.”

“Because, you know, I think about the people up in Buffalo who are still suffering because they still can’t go shopping anywhere because nobody will bring a supermarket where these folks are living,” she continued.

Her comments referred to the May 14 mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, where 10 people were killed.

“There is too much at stake, too many lives have been at stake, and too many damn little kids. I’m sick of seeing people talking about we should do something,” Goldberg said.

She continued, “No, we should do something. And I don’t care, NRA, you got to give that gun up. You can have your other yee-haw guns, whatever you want. The AR-15 is not a hunting gun. It is not a gun where you’re going to go out and shoot your dinner. This gun is meant to kill people. That’s what it’s for. And you can’t have it anymore.”

She went on:

“And I’m not even going to tell you how pissed I am that so many folks are saying you ‘Well, you can’t have what you need for your body.’ Forget my body, you can’t have this gun because it kills people and children and I’m sick of it.”

At a separate point, Goldberg said, “I want people who are part of the NRA to have to go to the funerals of these children.”

Guest Tara Setmayer chimed in, “Or look at the pictures.”

Goldberg added, “And also, I don’t want all your guns the way you don’t want to take away all my rights to abortion. I don’t want all your guns. I want that AR-15. I want it. And we’re going to vote it out so it’s not going to be acceptable…Keep whatever else you got, get rid of the AR-15.”

Golberg’s comments come a week after a gunman opened fire in an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, killing 19 children and two adults.

The shooting is the second deadliest shooting in an elementary school in U.S. history.

It has sparked renewed calls for gun control measures.
