Chelsea Handler Rips Gun Owners

Chelsea Handler has blasted the “gun lobby” and issued a renewed call for increased gun control measures days before the talk show host is set to be honored at the anti-gun Brady Center Bear Awards Wednesday night.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter this week, Handler said she believes President Donald Trump loves the “gun lobby” and “doesn’t give a sh*t about people.”

In fact, Handler contends that Trump “doesn’t care about anybody.”

Handler told THR:

Obviously, [the state of] gun control in this country is totally unacceptable, and the gun lobby is so strong and so powerful that anytime a celebrity can bring attention to this cause — among many other [causes] — you know it’s an easy thing for anyone to do. We’re way behind the times in terms of gun control in this country, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. Our voices just need to keep getting louder, and the people that make an impact need to really just step up and stick their necks out a little bit more.

THR then pointed to the NRA’s support of Trump during last year’s campaign campaign and Trump’s pro-Second Amendment stance then and now. Handler responded, “People need to be louder than ever with this president and his relationship to the gun lobby. He doesn’t give a s—about people. He doesn’t care about anybody.”

The host of Netflix’s Chelsea also appeared to suggest that gun ownership is nothing more than a “hobby.”

“Nobody is trying to take away your guns. If you want to go shoot, you know, whatever, in the woods, that’s fine, but it’s a hobby,” she told THR. “If your hobby is [affecting] innocent people being killed all the time, children included, don’t you think you should reconsider the lack of restrictions placed on your hobby?”

Handler mentioned a few specific gun controls she believes are needed, such as “heightened… restrictions on buying guns.” The left has been pursuing such restrictions in the form of universal background checks for decades, but the American people have continually elected people–either to Congress, the White House, or both–who will prevent such checks from being put in place. The opposition to the checks springs from the understanding that they not the real goal of the left. Rather, the goal is the gun registration that follows such checks (see California).

Moreover, the American people have rejected such checks because they do not work; determined attackers still kill large numbers of innocents at will with firearms, knives, and/or trucks. After all, France has universal background checks, yet they witnessed 142 innocents gunned down by terrorists in 2015 alone. London has such checks too, but that did not stop three attackers from driving a van into pedestrians on London Bridge on June 3, 2017, then chasing and stabbing innocents in Borough Market.

    I don’t understand why bitch Handler is still in the USA. She was going to leave the country if Trump was elected president. I thought maybe she was going accompany Ruth Ginsburg to New Zealand.

  • Kirke Veeder

    She has no clue. They don’t realize that no matter how dedicated and professional the police may be, they are after the fact! She’s just another leftie “comedian” that either needs to get back to being funny OR get a real job.

    • old codger

      She’s NOT qualified for either!!!!! LSHMSH!!!!

  • Then you have to outlaw knives! You GD lunatic! Chelsea, just sit down, collect your paycheck, and SHUT THE FU** UP!!!

  • Mister Vice

    Hey Chelsea Moron,
    The right to bear arms is a constitutional RIGHT, not a HOBBY as you view it… which means it was a right bought and paid for by the blood of our ancestral heroes! You say we are “…way behind in terms of gun control nowadays…” and that ignorant statement shows everyone how uninformed you are. We have a RIGHT to bear arms to protect ourselves from ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC which means not just intruders breaking down the front door intending to do us harm but also to keep an out of control government in check! You should be grateful that some us own guns and stay proficient in their use. I know of no one that goes to the gun range to practice murder, only for self defense. Time for you and the rest of the “gun control” idiots to get informed!

    • old codger

      Here’s some fuel for your fire!!
      One question that SHOULD be on any background check is political party affiliation! Why you may wonder? “Most are registered “DemoCRAPS””! If they check DemoCRAP as party affiliation, no need to pick up the phone, AUTOMATIC failure on the background check! ROFLMAO!

      Gun Control Solution
      In 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.
      In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States- who later died from the wound.
      In 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy,President of the United States.
      In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States.
      In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan President of the
      United States.
      In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonald’s restaurant.
      In 1986 Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.
      In 1990 James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.
      In 1991 George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria in Killeen, TX
      In 1995 James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5
      coworkers in a Texas laboratory
      In 1999 Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service.
      In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.
      In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.
      In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho, shot and killed 32
      people in Virginia Tech.
      In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.
      In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.
      In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7
      people in Minneapolis.
      In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26
      people in a school in Newtown, CT.
      As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship yard.
      Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns. Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in any of these shootings and murders.

      SOLUTION: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.
      We don’t need gun control, we need Democrat control. Guns don’t kill people, Democrats do! Ironic, yes????

    I hope without malice that someday all these liberals WITH THEIR SECURITY WITH GUNS -some day find themselves without their protectors which none of the rest of us are provided. They talk big, but they NEVER take the guns away from their security details.
    Friend sent me a pic of a gun on the floor with the caption the it hasn’t gotten up yet and killed anyone. Perhaps all these liberals need to take the weapons away from our armed forces and put them out there and let them talk ISIS to death.

    Yet another blowhard celeb running her mouth because that is what her celeb friends are saying & she need to be part of the so called ” in crowd.”

  • BruceB

    There are already plenty of checks before you can buy a gun in most areas. This is known as the federal NICS check to see if you can legally own a firearm. Most states also require either a Permit to purchase a pistol or a Concealed Carry Permit in order to buy a pistol. The NICS check is mainly for long guns, but is also done in a lot of areas for pistols as well. But you must remember, the criminals and insane people who obtain weapons for terror attacks or for use in a crime, do not buy their weapons the legal way. It is either black market or in some cases, stolen. New laws can not fix that. It is already a Felony for a criminal to own or buy a firearm, but the law is hardly enforced.

  • ardvietvet

    Read the 2nd Amendenment….MORON……It protects your right to speak like a FOOL!!!!

    “Lack of Restrictions”? Really? There are too many as it is, go back to your snowflake world!

  • patriotbabe

    Yes, whatever an alcoholic pothead says, we should do.

    • jon

      or a criminal of the Clinton crime syndicate wants so they can continue to order more people to die for them !!

  • jon

    i think a law should be made to have all liberal Clinton downers and friends of george soros have to give up all armed security in any form or person for the period of 5 yrs to prove the point or the non need for guns

    • Fred Patton

      Does this ‘nut-job’ know that the States and Cities with the most stringent Gun Control Laws have the most
      Criminal Shootings ? Illinois,NYC an example; Yet I’ve yet to hear about mass shootings in Vermont,
      or any other State with minimum restrictions of having those “problems”.WAKE UP CHANDLER” and stick to being a Comedian(??) !!!!

  • avlisk

    So, she hates me for owning a gun, hates me for joining the NRA, hates me for supporting the very document that created this Nation, and hates me for having the ability to protect myself, my property, my family, and my country against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. She is one of our enemies. She is bad.


    She is so ignorant to the facts it is pathetic. We have over 20 thousand gun laws on the books and not one of them have worked and any new laws will not work.

  • Ken

    Where do these ignorant people come from?

  • C.Henry

    Why do we give a Rats Azz what this liberal loony says , she doesn’t have a clue .
    She’s a drunken fool ……………………..I need attention my career sucks !!

    Any individual or group that is determined to kill, will find a way. Limit the capacity in the weapons magazines and what happens they simply bring more magazines, take away the firearm, what happens they simply use a knife or vehicle and those who are really determined use explosives or just blow themselves up, what you end up doing is simply taking away the Law Abiding Citizens way of protecting themselves. I live in Colorado and when the theater shooting occurred, I often wondered if someone had been armed, could they have stopped the attacker, maybe, maybe not, but justn for a second though, maybe the attacker would have been distracted, his attention now would have to be focused on this person, and during that second someone might have been able to stop him, and even if he didn’t stop the attacker, the fact that maybe just one more person could have been saved seems worth it to me… I wonder if you Chelsea ended up in a situation where she and others were being attacked, would she feel the same, or would she wish at that moment that she had a weapon (not that she would know how to use it)or wish some else had one to stop the attack…..Hobby my ass!!!

  • jeff

    Her sincerity is killing me. She and all of the others who were going to move out of the USA if Trump won.

  • John

    Okay, if we take her at her word, that guns are only for a hobby, and not for protection, there can be no armed police, armed security, armed national guard and other military, no armed government agencies, and so no. It is a very easy reductio ad absurdum argument to use against gun control freaks. She is also showing she is against the rule of law: the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall NOT be infringed. The law is in English. Its meaning can not be mistaken, except by willful ignorance or criminal intent.

  • I wonder if her “goddess” Hillary remembers the conversation she had with the Secret Service when she and her husband were out here at Jackson Lake Lodge for the FRB get-together and she complained about there being “too many guns” in rifle racks in the back of trucks” and could they do something about it.

  • Tony

    Stupid bitch doesn’t understand the owning a gun is NOT A FUCKING HOBBY!!!!!! IT’S A GOD DAMNED RIGHT !!!! The lefty communist that she belongs to are the enemy of ALL gun owners!!!! I DESPISE FUCKING BRAIN DEAD PEOPLE!!!!

  • Merle Dickey

    A gun is way less harmful than the filth that comes out of her mouth !!

  • Ronald Hagler

    If ignorance truly is bliss, then Chelsea Handler must be the Apex of the ignorance pyramid. She rants and raves on a subject she obviously knows nothing about: like the Constitution! Had she taken the time to read the Second Amendment, Handler would realize the “Gun” Lobbyist are simply fighting to preserve the Constitution and all of it’s content. What part of “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed” does Handler not understand?

    The liberal factor in this country has no problem with government access to medical records for determining gun ownership, but they would scream all the way to their grave if the same format was applied to their freedom of speech. If a Politian suggested that one must produce mental health records in order to post political statements via any social media, the liberals would run said politician out of D.C. ! But, let that same politician seek to pass a bill asking for the same medical records in order for a veteran to purchase a firearm and the liberal masses will anoint him/her with sainthood.

    The liberal minions see the phrase “the right of the people” in the 1st Amendment and interpret it to mean all citizens, but, the same phase, as it is written in the 2nd Amendment, is translated by these same liberals as referring to the militia; not all citizens. The Constitution MUST be accepted in it’s entirety or we all fail.

    • Ronald Hagler

      Criminals are outlaws, thus they live outside of the law. This being a fact, how does the liberal mind conclude that any “gun” law will reduce crimes? Only law-abiding citizens will obey “gun” laws, so why have them? The only conclusion is that all gun laws will result in further hindering an individual’s right to self-defense, while granting criminals the upper hand due to their not releasing their firearms. Disarming law-abiding citizens is never a deterrent to crime.

  • Neil Tuttle

    snowflake, personal i hate stand up comics, most uselss people in the world, the only thing they commit to society is thier hatefull ideas piled high with bull shit and stupidy… hang it up looser, get a job, mcdonalds is hireing…

  • sheep dog 338

    Dear Chelsea you do need a handler. Have you ever tried to out yell a . 50.???

  • Along came Jones

    For a person who is so against the second amendment she sure SHOOTS her mouth off a lot. If owning guns had ever been a hobby we would still be paying taxes to the English Crown. She does, due to gun owners, have a right to her opinion and I support her right to be stupid. I just wish she could see the truth of her own words.

  • Jim

    When will these liberals realise nobody gives a shit what they think or what they want. Stick with your professions and lieve subjects you no nothing about alone, let people think your a idiot don’t open your mouth and remove all doubt!!!!

    Talking about hating the American people! This bitch is just another hillary clone! Since when does a piece of paper with a law or rule on it stop a bad guy from committing a crime? In fact, criminals look for places that force people to be victims by the government rule or law! ( gun free zones, no carry law)
