Meghan McCain Apparently Can't Survive Without Her Most Vital Nutrient, the AR-15

The View made its triumphant return on Tuesday, complete with a cameo appearance
from Abby Huntsman’s incredibly tranquil newborns and a not-so-tranquil Meghan
McCain rallying against “gun grabbers” who apparently want nothing more than to
take away her right to drink Jack Daniels on the shooting range with her
husband.

Since The View went on its summer break, and as is depressingly common at this
point, there have been a series of mass shootings across the United States. The
most recent of which occurred in Odessa, Texas, and left seven people dead. The
shooter reportedly previously failed a background check, and he did not undergo
a background check when he obtained the AR-style gun that was used in the
attack.

But this doesn’t appear to bother McCain—who helpfully described herself as “the
chick on the panel that spent most of her break shooting”—one bit. What does
bother her is Beto O’Rourke’s call for gun buybacks and any threat against her
NRA-card carrying rights.

When View co-host Joy Behar asserted that voting for the Republican Party is a
vote for stagnation on assault weapon legislation, McCain lost it.

“The AR-15 is by far the most popular gun in America, by far,” she said. “I was
just in middle-of-nowhere Wyoming... if you’re talking about taking people’s
guns from them, there’s going to be a lot of violence.”

Ignoring the fact that McCain suggested a violent insurrection as a normal
response to a change in gun policy, Behar then noted that gun owners have lived
without AR-15 before. McCain pushed back. “I’m not living without guns!” McCain
yelled. “It’s just that simple.”

Co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Huntsman joined in on the dogpile. McCain felt
attacked. Welcome back to The View.

There are traumatized teenagers advocating for more sensible gun policy than
Meghan McCain, a grown woman who is paid millions of dollars to share her bad
opinions on national television. McCain’s ability to shoot targets as meditation
would in no way be infringed upon by the introduction of highly specific weapons
bans and buybacks, waiting periods, comprehensive background checks, or stronger
safety nets that help women escape violent relationships before they become
lethal. McCain likely already knows this. Take that for what you will.

I used to think Liz Cheney was the Paris Hilton of American politics but
at least she has a law degree and got elected to something, that title
definitely belongs to Megan McCain now.

Liz Cheney is a militant lesbian that wouldn't appear to have much in
common with Paris Hilton.
