‘You can have your other YEE-HAW GUNS’: Whoopi Goldberg mocks gun owners, calls for AR-15 ban

Tuesday on “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg told gun-owning Americans that they can keep their “yee-haw guns,” but it’s time to give up their AR-15s in light of the deadly mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, New York.

“Listen, this AR-15’s got to go. I’m sorry,” Goldberg began.

“There’s too much at stake here, too many lives have been at stake, and too many damn little kids. I’m sick of seeing people talking about we should do something. No, we should do something. And I don’t care, NRA. You’ve got to give that gun up,” she added, referring to the AR-15.

“You can have your other yee-haw guns, whatever you want. The AR-15 is not a hunting gun. It is not a gun where you’re going to go out and shoot your dinner. This gun is meant to kill people. That’s what it’s for. And you can’t have it anymore.”

u201c@Gabby_Hoffman Yeah she was apparently of an anti-South mindset during this rant. She made a reference to using the Bible u201cdown southu201d too. As an 10th generation Southerner PLEASE keep disparaging us so folks wonu2019t want to move here and turn us into Nashville or Austinu201d

u201cWell at least Whopping said we can keep out u2018yee-hawu2019 guns! Tell me Whoopi, whatu2019s the difference between these two? Which is a u2018yee-hawu2019 gun and which u2018assault rifleu2019? Oh, I know. The black gun looks scary – it MUST be the u2018assault rifleu2019 (doesnu2019t exist for civilians).u201d
