Awww … Piers Morgan must be beaming right now. After railing yesterday against deadly House Republicans and that antiquated Second Amendment, Midler is doubling down on the derpitude. Just like gutless ghoul Musket Morgan, the asinine Miss M. insists that the Founding Fathers were only thinking about muskets when they wrote the Constitution; therefore, we need to ban all other types of firearms. And, just like Morgan, she’s still lambasting the NRA and blaming everyone but the person who pulls the trigger.

Since when is the NRA responsible for how a state spends on mental illness?

Here’s a pretty good indicator that the answer is no:

Freedom from fear? Oh, please. Not only does Ms. Midler fail to grasp that the Second Amendment allows people in fear to defend themselves, but she doesn’t seem to understand that fear is a response to perceived danger. It’s the refusal to acknowledge danger that’s truly life-threatening.

Now that’s scary. But it’s exactly what Midler wants.

Frustrated Twitterers tried to set her straight:

It certainly hasn’t.

That’s just it — it doesn’t. But Midler doesn’t seem to mind. In fact, she’s ready to march:

Wonder if she’ll take along a bodyguard.

    According to the libs, I can’t have my musket either (.58 Cal Enfield) .It’s a military style weapon .

    • glider2hi

      Better yet go for the .69 caliber smooth bore musket (a military weapon) load a buck and ball. Let’s see how many know what I am talking about.

  • don3ham

    Who defined these Four Freedoms? Where? When? Who promises that we have a right not to feel fear? Just asking… it doesn’t seem very rational on the face of it.

    • don3ham

      Aha… they’re an FDR socialist utopian fantasy. That explains a lot. So if I fear liberals taking away my Constitutional rights do I then have a right to have them jailed so that I don’t fear them anymore?

    • glider2hi

      The four freedom’s come from a Norman Rockwell painting he had during WWII. It was to show the American people reasons for fighting the Germans and Japanese. In other words we were fighting to preserve our four freedoms.

        The State of the Union speech 1941, made by F. D. Roosevelt.

        Then Mr. Rockwell made some paintings in 1943.

  • traffic_robot

    Actually, maybe she’s onto something. Only law-abiding gun owners would know how to operate a musket. Once the criminals get theirs, we’ll probably be much safer.

    Midler is clueless to true American History. She needs to visit the Library of Congress where she can see a 1st draft of the U.S. Constitution which was given to GENERAL George Washington for his thoughts on it. Yes, it contains the GENERAL’s comments written on it. Hmm, since it was given to GENERAL Washington, I guess we did have an army then. It’s amazing how clueless liberals are to the truth and to real history. Midler is an old, alcoholic who is a has been and wants to be important again. I worked as a theater tech and stage manager in Los Angeles, and let me tell you most actors can do only one thing…memorize lines, and some of them can’t even do that. Yet all of them need a Director, and Stage Manager to help them act. The are basically court jesters who need someone to craft their routines.

    Wonder if she or one of her bodyguards will be packing heat during the march?

    Despite the “to protect and serve” slogan emblazoned on their vehicles, the police have no obligation to respond to individuals. Someone should read this ridiculous woman the text of Warren v. District of Columbia and then ask her how secure she feels.

    but ..but …i thought the libs say we have a living breathing constitution or is that only when they want it to?

    So, we should get what they had back then? Sweet! Time to go get my cannons, tanks, and misc explosives!

    Hey, Bette, the 2nd Amendment isn’t a LAW. It’s the guarantee of protection of a God Given RIGHT.

    And AMERICANS had the latest in firearms technology with the Kentucky and Pennsylvania Long Rifles. THAT is a large part of how we kicked the arse of King George III and HIS MUSKETS.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            I didn’t ask you either. And I didn’t call into question her ability to ask the question like she did of Midler. See? She said “Why is this woman allowed to ask a question?” Where I asked why she was upset that Midler was allowed to ask a question. Is that clear enough for you? Do you need me to explain the difference between the two questions again?

          • http://twitter.com/Bris_Central Ruth Bonnett

            Not upset at all that Bette Muddler has her facts wrong but speaks despite her ignorance of the constitution. I just think it is better to be a fool than open your mouth and prove it, especially if a high profile person!

    She should know something about muskets considering she was well into her 50’s when they were invented. Or was it back when the crossbow was invented. I forget.

    If the Constitution is so arcane, can Republicans take away Midler’s right to free speech. After all, it was crafted to only cover pen and paper/vocal speech.

    I’m a hunter, I hunt to put meat, much healthier meat by the way, on the table to feed my family. I do agree the AR-15 and other guns like them are not for hunting, simple. If you need to use those types of guns to kill game, then you need to stop hunting. I need one shot from my .270, 30-06 or my shot gun with a slug or buckshot for that matter. However the AR15 and other rifles like it are great weapons for home defense. I’m very tired of ppl saying you don’t need these guns for hunting (which is true) as part of the reason the ppl don’t need these weapons. These ppl need to read the 2nd amendment. In part it says “to form a well regulated militia” I ppl not like this but it also came about to allow the ppl to fight back against a tyrannical government. It also affords us the ability to fight back an enemy that would come on our shores. I don’t believe our government will turn the military on its ppl not do I believe the military would carry out that order to kill the ppl they swore to protect. I do believe we need more than a hunting rifle and a shotgun for home protection or for protecting America. If an enemy or gang rose up in America or town/city X and started killing our citizens, those without arms those that speak against guns, I guarantee those folks would be the first to find a well regulated, well armed militia or well armed citizen and beg them to save them. Just remember in 2008 Russia invaded South Ossetia in Georgia. It’s a dangerous world we need to be prepared. We do need common sense laws in regards to who can not own guns like mental illness or felons for example. One other thing the shooter of those precious children was denied the legal purchase of a gun from the store so in that aspect the law worked. The problem is he got his mothers weapons. Lastly if a criminal or an unstable person wants to perpetrate a crime they will find a way. A lot of times laws have unintended consequences. I’m sorry this was so long. I just had to get this off my chest. Thanks for your patience.

      bushmaster actually a good varmit weapon too, does not get caught up on brush a lot and is light.
      have used it on gophers and raccoons here.

      less powerful than ones you mentioned too, have heard some use it for possum to eat but I have not seen that up here in the north so I don’t know that to be fully true.

        I pity you that you need a weapon designed specifically for mass murder to try and make yourself feel superior to someone. And I don’t know anything about how guns work or calibers of ammo because I have never felt the need to own a gun in order to give myself a false sense of security.

    Bette Midler talking about muskets again.She must have fond memories of her youth,whatever century that was in.The old trout could have probably asked the founders what they meant personally.
