Joy Behar Says Gun Laws Will Definitely Change ‘Once Black People Get Guns in This Country’

Andi Ortiz, The Wrap, June 8, 2022

Joy Behar got blunt on Wednesday’s episode of “The View,” saying that if more Black people in the country owned guns, politicians would enact gun reform much quicker.

The hosts spent most of the Hot Topics discussion on gun reform once more, as they regularly have been since the horrific killing of 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas. {snip}

The hosts got heated as most of them once again argued that AR-15s need to be taken off the market altogether. Host Joy Behar criticized the Republican party for effectively making that idea “a no-starter” though.

But conservative guest host Lindsey Granger, a gun owner herself, then told the story of a man in Connecticut who built his own AR-15 after his neighbor was hit by a home invasion, in which his family was killed. {snip}

“Here’s the thing, once Black people get guns in this country, the gun laws will change. Trust me,” Behar said.

At that, Granger seemed stunned into silence. But host Sunny Hostin jumped in to support Behar, noting that “that’s what happened with the Black Panthers. She’s right.” {snip}
