Vice President Joe Biden guests on ‘Late Night’; Seth Meyers bombs!/jpodhoretz/status/438188744387358720

He’s vice president, not president, so being second in line is just part of the job. Vice President Joe Biden was the second guest on the inaugural broadcast of “Late Night with Seth Meyers” late Monday night.!/kickitupanacho/status/438199430307516416!/Adjustedwell/status/438199212329541632!/BPetrishen_MWDN/status/438195278295085057

Judging from Twitter reaction, there’s only one thing worse than being the second guest on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” and that’s being the host of “Late Night with Seth Myers.”!/stvoraw/status/438188008819666944!/jeremyhood216/status/438193638946795520!/LizMalinowski/status/438187874421571584!/sofargonz/status/438187553871888385!/mavanco/status/438187836739969024!/mcbc/status/438187371616419840!/SkyMansell/status/438187247364354048

Comedian D.L. Hughley tweets gun-control rant after Aurora movie shooting!/RealDlHughley/status/226286101311139840

Expect a lot of knee-jerk, Hollywood gun-control diatribes like this one from comedian D.L. Hughley today in the wake of the Aurora movie shooting:

— DL Hughley (@RealDLHughley) July 20, 2012

In sum states u can vote with a gun license but not a college ID! More Americans were killed n Chicago in the last 10years than Afghanistan!

— DL Hughley (@RealDLHughley) July 20, 2012

Um, until two years ago when the Supreme Court overturned it, Chicago had one of the strictest gun-control regimes in the nation. How did that work out, D.L.?


In the years following its ban, Washington did not generate a decline in gun murders. In fact, the number of killings rose by 156 percent—at a time when murders nationally increased by just 32 percent. For a while, the city vied regularly for the title of murder capital of America.

Chicago followed a similar course. In the decade after it outlawed handguns, murders jumped by 41 percent, compared to an 18 percent rise in the entire United States.

One problem is that the bans didn’t actually have any discernible effect on the availability of guns to people with felonious intent. As with drugs and hookers, when there is a demand for guns, there will always be a supply.

Who places the highest value on owning a firearm? Criminals. Who is least likely to fear being prosecuted for violating the law? Criminals. Who is most likely to have access to illicit dealers? You guessed it.

Twitter users sent reality checks to Hughley. But Tinseltown elites are impervious to reality.

.@RealDlHughley explain how gun laws stop criminals from having guns when laws against murder don't stop them from killing

— Harold Stickeehands (@StickeeNotes) July 20, 2012

So, @RealDlHughley, how's that strict gun control working out in Chicago?

— Against Obama (@against_obama) July 20, 2012

I suppose blaming guns is easier than holding people accountable for their actions. No amount of gun control will fix Chi, @RealDlHughley

— Harold Stickeehands (@StickeeNotes) July 20, 2012

@Snarky_Basterd @ewerickson @RealDlHughley First step in gun control is to stop acting in movies featuring them, my friend.

— David West (@Ltfngr) July 20, 2012

This tweet from a Hughley fan just leaves us…speechless. It’s all the Founding Fathers’ fault.

@RealDlHughley what you expect when America was built upon values of violence i.e. Star-Spangled Banner.

Mayor Bloomberg, Piers Morgan and Hollywood goons from John Leguizamo to Henry Winkler join the unseemly cries for gun control just hours after the shooting.
