Maher: Gun Control ‘Not Really Going to Change Much’ Because ‘Even the Liberal Party Loves Guns’


Appearing on Conan last night, Bill Maher said that enacting gun-control legislation would have little effect because Democrats are as attached to guns as Republicans. Even though he favors universal background checks and placing a limit on clip sizes, Maher, who said in the interview that he is a gun owner, concluded, “it’s not really going to change much in this country.”

“This is the gun country, and the one reason why it is the gun country is because even the liberal party loves guns,” he continued. Maher referenced the 1996 Dunblane school shooting in Scotland, which resulted in the confiscation of guns: “We’re not going to do that in this country because, once again, both parties love guns.”
