sherrishepherd Liberals are all about feelings and Progressive Ideology until reality smacks them upside the head.

Then suddenly, all the feel-good mantras in the world will not help not rectify a bad situation.

Sherri Shepherd, of ABC’s The View, announced on air, after a 1 AM burglar alarm scare, that she was “gonna get a gun!”

We have two dogs and they didn’t bark,” Shepherd said. “And immediately my husband jumped out of bed and ran downstairs. And I ran to my son Jeffrey’s room. And I never wanted a gun in my house but the sight of my son laying there saying, ‘Mommy I’m scared.’ That’s when you realize all you got is a wicker trash basket between me and anybody that comes in this room. And it was a scary thought.”


Shepherd, a Christian, has taken conservative views on a number of social issues of late. Of course Barbara Walters attempted to dissuade her:

“I don’t have a house. I have an apartment so I have a different set up,” Walters said. “But it scares me, what you’re talking about. Because when you have a gun, the tendency is to use it and sometimes you use it in the wrong way.”

But country music singer and heat-packin’ guest host, Gretchen Wilson, had Sherri’s back and stated she purse-carried a .38 and had a .45 for home defense. Boom!

The simple fact is, guns save lives.

Sherri was determined to never again be defenseless in a dangerous situation. She also was adamant that she and hubby, Lamar Sally, would purchase handguns, then go to the range for proper training in use and safety. Perfect!

If perpetrators assumed homeowners were armed and well-trained they might just have to find another line of business.



Kevin Jackson's hilarious take on Race-Pimping: The Multi-Trillion Dollar Business of Liberalism!

Enjoy this excerpt from the book:

"The money in diversity is enormous, even bigger than former sportscaster turned political pundit turned sportscaster Keith Olbermann’s ego. Wouldn’t you like to be a “reverend” and father children out of wedlock without repercussions? If you study hard, this book will teach you how to have your non-profit organization pay your mistress and your child support – all at the same time. You must be so black that if you eat sushi, watch reruns of Dawson’s Creek and Friends, or enjoy the ballet, you will hang yourself."

    Good for Mrs. Shepherd. Even the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that it is not the responsibility of the police to protect you. She might take a lot of heat for her decision to buy a gun, but that is a great deal better than being unable to defend yourself and your family from rape and murder! God Bless the 2nd amendment to our Bill of Rights.

  • Keon Wimsatt

    She is a hypocrite

  • Joe Zimmerman

    Walters is a stupid liberal slut ,,,,,,

  • gahnzo55

    That’s not gonna sit well with her co-view libs…

  • Angelfire4280

    So, does this mean Sherri will defend the 2nd Amendment when her loony co-workers speak against it? She will not fall into the Socialists double standard of: “It’s good for me, but not for thee,” will she? Time will tell, guesss.

  • Bruce Johnson

    I just cannot picture Sherri with a gun in her hand. Say it isn’t so.

    • Katherine

      Because you want to break into her house and make her and her family victims? Any woman who knows how to use a gun, in my opinion, is a tough one. I’m proud of her

  • abe-froman

    Gun control for thee …but not for me? typical liberal mantra ….until it happens to them

  • tony greene

    Why doesn’t she want to be a victim? Didn’t she know wicker baskets kill?

    • RPVG

      Not all wicker baskets kill. It’s only the “assault style” wicker baskets we need to fear — the ones capable of holding more than seven items.

      • James McLarey

        Wicker baskets do not kill. People with wicker baskets kill. It’s just a tool, like anything else.

        • RPVG

          I stand corrected. Thank you.

          • James McLarey


        • Ken Budd

          Joe Biden would tell her to go outside and throw that basket into the sky to scare them away.

        • Larry

          Still, we need a registry of those who own wicker baskets. In the wrong hands(here, I’m thinking Chuck Norris), someone with an unregistered wicker basket could take over the world.

  • Steve Pearson

    …if you choose NOT to own a firearm, that is YOUR choice …a rather ignorant choice to my mind, but a choice YOU are entitled to make none the less…. so DON’T try to force your own ignorant choice on the rest of us, and we’ll do the same! Guns….gooood! ….ignorance…..baaaaaaaad!

    • Katherine

      To be fair, your post is kind of “trying to force your opinion” but I agree with your opinion so I’m okay with it :)

      • Steve Pearson

        …to be fair, my post was “stating” my own opinion, not trying to force feed new laws down anyone’s throats to require them to own a gun or to have to register as a “non-gun owner”…

  • Katherine

    Then suddenly, all the feel-good mantras in the world will not help not rectify a bad situation.

    There’s a weird typo, bad grammar in there.
    Great article though! Go Gretchen, and Sherri!

  • Gray Wolf

    She will soon be off the show for not being liberal enough just like Leno.

  • floyd james

    This is both great and sad at the same time. First the good news is that this woman realizes that she should have the ability to protect herself, family, home and property. Hooray for her having that awakening, or should I say for that would-be burglar alarm scare for scaring her into reality. My only question is what kind of man is hubby for not already having a weapon to protect his family?
    But it is sad that an old woman like Baba Wawa can leap to such a conclusion as that. As a gun owner and being around guns my whole life, I like the overwhelming amount of other law abiding, gun owning Americans know full well the responsibility of that ownership and have not had the tendency to use those weapons wrongfully.
    The insults, the assertions, the downright lies the left promotes on guns, the 2nd amendment and gun owners gets very tiresome to those of us who participate in being American.
    As an American Christian, father, son, brother, military veteran and black man, I have nothing to be ashamed about or feel that I have to answer to or justify myself to anybody because I choose to legally own as many guns as I want.

    • Charles Breaux

      Babaa Wawaa, (liken to obama, who does not have the common sense or the mechanical ability to open or close an umbrella), is just plane stupid…

  • Sam Schmitt

    “when you have a gun, the tendency is to use it” is an extremely stupid line of reasoning. Unless of course, then end of that sentence is “to protect yourself and your family.” It’s not like having a gun magically makes people want to shoot their dogs and dinner guests.

    • Bob Rummell

      All JEWS want our guns so they really can manipulate us! ACHTUNG JUDEN, ACHTUNG!

  • Larry

    Here’s something fun to do: Look up the FBI’s list of the ten most used weapons in murders. The number one position on the list is…cars. Guns rank number 10. The number nine spot is held by baseball bats. That’s right folks, baseball bats. They are used more often in murders than guns. And any fool can head over to a Dick’s Sporting goods or Wal-Mart and buy one…

    • pateboo

      I got my bat at Target, we’ve had numerous break ins recently in my neighborhood. Anyone who breaks into MY home is going to get to hear and FEEL the crack of the bat.

      • Nick Danger

        What if they have a gun?

  • 1911
