Conan the Hypocrite
“Ban ‘assault weapons’ … except when I use them on the range.
Conan O'Brien claims to have stayed away from voicing his true opinion about political issues — until now. “I simply do not understand why anybody in this country is allowed to purchase and own a semiautomatic assault rifle,” he pontificated. “These are weapons of war and they have no place in civilian life. I have tried to understand this issue from every side and it all comes down to this: Nobody I know or have ever met in my entire life should have access to a weapon that can kill so many people so quickly.”
Except he sure looked like he was having fun on the shooting range with fully automatic weapons — weapons, by the way, that most Americans can’t own.
