    Conan O’Brien: No One Should Be ‘Allowed’ To Own A Semiautomatic Rifle

    He described semiautomatic rifles as “weapons of war” that “have no place in civilian life.”

    “I simply do not understand why anybody in this country is allowed to purchase and own a semiautomatic assault rifle, it makes no sense to me,” O’Brien said. He added that he tries to keep his “opinions” to himself, but on the matter of banning semiautomatic rifles he chose to speak his mind.



    He continued:
    These mass shootings are happening so often now, that lamenting them afterwards is becoming a national ritual. I do not know the answer, but I wanted to take just a moment here tonight to agree with the rapidly growing sentiment in America that it’s time to grow up and figure this out.
    Conan did not mention that all guns — handguns, rifles, and shotguns — were banned at the Pulse Orlando nightclub. It was a gun-free zone. But that apparently did not dissuade the attacker. Rather, it provided him a captive, defenseless gathering of potential and actual targets.

    Like other celebrities, politicians, and media pundits, Conan’s redundant use of the phrase “semiautomatic rifle” — coupled with “weapons of war” — creates an aura of mystery around the AR-15 rifle, making it sound like it is truly a military weapon. He might benefit greatly from reading Breitbart News’ AR-15 Users Guide for Ignorant Media Pundits Who Don’t Get It.

    O’Brien’s fellow late-night hosts, Seth Meyers and Jimmy Fallon, also scrapped their usual comedic monologues Monday night in favor of remarks about the terrorist attack in Orlando.

    Fallon’s speech centered on the need for tolerance, while Meyers ripped a Congress that “consistently chooses nothing as a course of action” on gun control.

    It amazes me that the actors and court jesters are the ones that feel the need to express themselves so vocally on what direction this country should progress. No true life accomplishments except playing roles and cracking jokes for the amusement and entertainment of others.

    I'm all over the comments section of that video on youtube. The amount of stupidity and ignorance never ceases to amaze me.

      Yet these are the very people who disproportionately shape public opinion. If Clooney or Kanye or a Kardashian says it, it must be so.

          All else aside……. Conan, you suck. You're not funny. How very far we have fallen since Johnny Carson.

                    What about semi-automatic handguns? Are they OK? I give him some credit for at least taking the time to understand that ARs are not machine guns. But, again another douche.

                    These asshats just don't want real answers: less muslims, no gun-free zones, more carry permits. It's really that simple.

                      Unfortunately this day and age everyone has a platform to express opinions. The unfortunate thing with celebs is the people wtiting the checks are libtards and therefore they talk about whatever keeps the cash rolling in.

                          ll a run-up to the main stream media's support of the Hildebeast! It will start with the appeal to "common sense," and then grow to "but Hitlary agrees! She wants to look at Australia! They decided to do something!" It will be used to push Trump's negatives up!
