Just another day, another meltdown for Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of ‘The View’ as she began shouting at a Conservative guest this time around. Tara Setmayer, a former Republican who may still have some Conservative values, pushed back during a conversation about gun control. Whoopi did not like that and started shouting at her.
WATCH the Whoopi MELTDOWN:
Setmayer said during the conversation: “Listen, I understand that, but it’s not as easy when you have a country that has more guns than people… You’re not going to be able to just ban all the guns.
Whoopi replied: “It is easy, but the things that you could say to people that we don’t say on this show, the things you can wish on people that we don’t wish on this show to people, because we know. We’ve all met people who have had to deal with the death of a loved one at the hands of a gun. And you can say ‘well, I wish they had more mental health checking,’ but people who don’t see the need to remove one gun, one gun! The people who don’t see a need to remove that will never see the need to make sure that people get the help.”

Setmayer suggested that banning certain guns would not stop gun violence or mass shootings, as people could do that with essentially any weapon.
Whoopi sounded irritated, saying: “A handgun does not turn people to dust. Start with the first thing that can eliminate a child, you know how big a child’s body is?”
At some point, Setmayer pointed out that there are still tons of shootings without using an AR style gun, many with handguns in cities like Chicago. What should they do about that? She also suggested that people would just get an AR on the black market, suggesting that criminals wouldn’t follow the laws anyway.
“It’s one gun out of the peripheral of guns that are out there. So what happens to the black market, then? So let’s say we ban the AR-15. AR-15s are the most popular weapon in this country.”
Goldberg lashed out: “Well, you know what? I’ll tell you what happens. The same thing that’s being threatened to women who decide ‘maybe I need to go talk to somebody about an abortion,’ what do they say? You got an AR-15, we will put your ass in jail.”
Goldberg continued her rant, lashing out at the NRA as well. “And I don’t care, NRA, you’ve got to give that gun up. You can have 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.”
It remains unclear what happens next with the government amid a wave of violence in America.
