Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, the former Chief of Staff to then-Secretary of State Colin Powell is a proud gun owner — but not for home security reasons.
On last night’s explosive Real Time with Bill Maher, the sole conservative, One America News Network’s Emily Miller, was left stunned after the career military man shut her down over why he had guns to begin with.
The retired colonel said: “We do not need large capacity magazines and weapons in the hands of civilians…I own guns to hunt with.”
He added that in his 71 years, he never once worried about anyone coming into his house and having to use guns to protect his family. He said: “I have law enforcement and other people around me to protect me.”
Meanwhile, Maher said it was “guns and religion” which brought the Orlando nightclub tragedy to light.
And he said he wished that President Obama and other Democrats adopted the calm and focused rhetoric of UK Prime Minister David Cameron in drawing a line in the sand about American and British values.
Wilkerson took umbrage when he thought Maher was saying all acts of terror were by Islamic radicals, saying: “It’s not just Muslims shooting people!”
But Maher became enraged, saying: “That is a false equivalency…how many Muslim-inspired terrorist attacks have there been… and how many Christian-inspired?”
Later on Overtime, watch as Ravi Patel slammed Emily Green over her gun ownership and her expertise on speaking about Trump.
And Donald Trump is served a heaping pile of STFU pie by Maher in New Rules — a must-see segment.
