The View’s No Longer Rosie

Friday, April 27, 2007

One of the shrillest anti-gun celebries, Rosie O’Donnell, who often used her spot on T.V. talk-show The View as a platform for her anti-gun blathering, recently failed to agree to terms of a contract extension and, thankfully, will be leaving the show.

Whether ambushing guests on the issue of gun control, or stumping for the farcical "Million" Mom March, O'Donnell's very public and misinformed anti-gun stances are well documented. Renegade Rosie once even stated that if you own a gun, you should go to jail! Evidently her hired bodyguards would receive a personal exemption.

But lately, O'Donnell's anti-gun crusade seems to be losing steam. She recently said on The View that she believes tougher gun control is "impossible," that she now feels her past attempts have been "futile," and that "there will never be gun control in America." She concluded by chattering that NRA is "organized," "scary," that "they have guns," and, it's "impossible" to fight them.
