The liberal hosts of The View were excited by Newsom’s newest attack on the Second Amendment, a gun control law that would allow private citizens to sue gun manufacturers and sellers, in response to Texas’s abortion law. Co-host Sunny Hostin insisted pro-lifers should be supportive of the liberal law.

But first, co-host Joy Behar suggested the Supreme Court was at fault for not yet striking down the Texas law: “I mean, if they keep throwing all these things to the states, I mean they could overturn Brown versus the Board of Education and bring back segregated schools if they want in some states, then why do we need the Supreme Court? They’re on a path to oblivion.”
Guest host, CNN Republican Amanda Carpenter, seemed to agree the Supreme Court was at fault, but she bashed Newsom’s law as “a recipe for disaster.” She worried that every divisive issue would come down to the states: “We won’t have a nationwide debate about abortion, we’ll have a 50 state debate about abortion. And now we might apply those tactics to other divisive issues like gun rights? This is a recipe for disaster.”
Hostin condemned Carpenter for saying she was pro-life but disagreeing with Newsom’s anti-gun law. She lectured her on what being pro-life actually means, and unsurprisingly, it all came down to supporting liberal ideas:
It seems to me that if you’re pro-life then you would be pro-life across the board in terms of protecting the sanctity of life. Right? So Pro-lifers should be supportive of Gavin Newsom’s law.
So pro-life would mean you’re in support of, or against rather the death penalty, you would be against the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction, you would be against the manufacture of instrumentalities of death like guns. So I think what Gavin Newsom is doing is perfectly appropriate in line with what the Supreme Court has held that private citizens may be able to sue anyone anywhere anytime from any state. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, right?
