What’s Really Going on With These Calls for Gun Control After Vegas Shooting?

Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg, Tom Arnold … what’s a common theme behind their tweets advocating for gun control reform? Doc had a tongue-in-cheek theory while sitting in for Glenn on Tuesday’s show.

DOC: Doc Thompson in for Glenn. We're going to go down the list of some of the reaction from celebrities to the attack, the murderous rampage in Las Vegas. And try to help them come into contact or understand their emotions a little bit better. Now, a lot of these, you're going to think, it's just anger. Them lashing out. But I think there's something more to it. So I have lists of adjectives to describe emotions. And we'll try to apply them here.

So first, Joe Biden, for example. Joe Biden tweets out a couple of things: Appalled by the senseless loss of life in Las Vegas, Jill and I hold all of those affected and grieving in our hearts.

How long do we let gun violence tear families apart? Enough. Congress and the White House should act now to save lives. There's no excuse for inaction.

Obviously angry.

KRIS: Very angry.

DOC: But see, I think there's more to it.

KRIS: Okay.

DOC: I think he's also feeling irrelevant. Unimportant. Unemployed.

There's -- I'm just trying to help, Kris.

KRIS: I think this is going to go this way. I thought you would actually be helping them.

DOC: I am helping them.

KAL: He could have felt those things about four years ago.

KRIS: There goes Kal.

DOC: Well, no, Kal recognizes Joe is probably feeling a little lost lately, feeling a little irrelevant, and he has to lash out. See, I'm helping, Kris.

Michael Bloomberg, former mayor: Resolve to stop mass shootings in America and back up our words with actions.

Feeling very controlling.

KRIS: Very.

DOC: And also irrelevant.

Okay. Tom Arnold, for example.

KRIS: I thought you were doing celebrities.

DOC: Oh, that's a good point.

KAL: Talk about irrelevant.

DOC: I was doing celebrities. You're right --

KRIS: So who is this guy?

DOC: Isn't he the guy who got famous for diddling Roseanne Barr?

KRIS: Whoa. Can you say that on TV?

DOC: Diddling. You know, playing --

KRIS: Playing the flute?

DOC: Playing the flute. Exactly. You know, a little game. That means board game, right? In Spanish?

KRIS: Yes.

DOC: Tom Arnold tweeting: Stephen Paddock is a terrorist. Trump signed a bill allowing mentally ill eager -- mentally ill, easier access to guns. @NRA will sell more guns. #guncontrolnow.

Dogmatic. Power hungry, maybe. How do you think he's feeling, Kris?

KRIS: I think he's feeling --

DOC: Triggered?

KRIS: Triggered.

DOC: Is that inappropriate? Snowflake-esque. Something like that.

KRIS: Dirtbag-y.

DOC: Shaun King tweeting out: Only in America can whiteness prevent the man who conducted the deadliest mass shooting in American history from being called a terrorist.

KRIS: Shaun King.

DOC: Head of -- the guy who started or early founder of BLM.

KRIS: You mean the white guy?

DOC: Yeah. But he identifies as black.

KRIS: Okay.

DOC: He's more black than Rachel Dolezal. So I think today he's feeling more black.

KRIS: Because --

DOC: Only whiteness.

KRIS: Yeah.

DOC: Clearly he's not identifying with his white side today.

KRIS: Has he disowned his white side? Because he is white.

DOC: Maybe. Could be. Hmm.

Andy Cohen.

KRIS: Again...

DOC: I don't know who that is either. But he's a verified account. He's one of the Hollywood types. Here's what he tweeted, very simple. And I'm going to help you.

KRIS: Okay.

DOC: How about we ban machine guns? How about that, Kris? How about we ban machine guns.

KAL: They're already banned.

DOC: I'm sorry. What?

KRIS: Thank you, Kal.

DOC: They're already banned. Oh, that 1930 law. The law that's almost 100 years old. Hmm. Okay. So I'm guessing he's feeling stupid.

Ignorant. Embarrassed. If he's not, he should be. Because it's -- it's been about 100 years since they've been banned. Just so you know.

KRIS: Meaningless?

DOC: Meaningless. Something like that. He should be. Andy, you should be.

Now, he followed these up, when other people were like, also 1980 law that bans them as well.

KRIS: He tried to clean it up?

DOC: No, that's what other people like tried to tell him. '30s law and 1980's law.

And he was like, yeah, I'm just saying that's my reaction when I hear about that, that we should ban them.

KRIS: So idiotic?

DOC: Yes. Spin. I guess spin-master. Something like this.

KRIS: Loser?

DOC: Loser, that would work as well.

KRIS: Dummy?

DOC: If you want solutions, we have solutions coming up for you as well, from Vicente Fox of Mexico.

FULL EPISODE: 'The Democrats' Hydra'

"As one falls, two more will take their place." Democracy does die in darkness and is being strangled in secret, back-door arrangements.

Disturbing details and explosive documents reveal how the Obama Deep State allowed the theft of a country and has set the stage for devastating consequences in our democracy today.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.
