    Howard Stern: The Handgun Is ‘The Great Equalizer’

    During the April 11 airing of The Howard Stern Show on Sirius XM, Howard Stern told a caller that the handgun is “the great equalizer.”

    Stern defended the Second Amendment, saying, “I believe every citizen needs the right to be armed.”​

    He was interacting with a caller named Joel from Wyoming, who pointed out that it would take law enforcement “fifteen to twenty minutes” to reach him in the event of an emergency, so having a gun is his first defense.​

    Stern concurred and used an example involving co-host Robin Quivers to make a point:​

    Think about it. If Robin was walking alone in a parking lot and two men were going to approach her with the idea of robbing and raping her, what is her only option? In other words, let’s say we took away all the guns on the planet. Now there’s no more guns. I think people would be less safe. Now, this is just my way of thinking about it, [but] the men who could fight with swords and with knives and with baseball bats and bare fists, they’d have every opportunity to overpower a young woman walking alone [or] an older gentleman who no longer can fight a 30-year-old just out of prison–who’s been working out like a monster and weighs 250 pounds of pure muscle. I believe the world would be so out of f**king control.

    Then Stern stressed what he sees as the solution to a world in which the strong rape and pillage the weak at will, saying, “The great equalizer is the [handgun]–a semiautomatic weapon or revolver.”​

    Stern added:​

    How else would you defend yourself against a thug with a baseball bat with a chain around it? How the hell could you protect your family, your wife, your children, or how would a woman protect her property or prevent being raped without a handgun? It’s the only thing that equalizes.
    He's 100 % right on this one. Pity he'll probably backtrack to his "ban guns" stance after a call from Rosie and/or Kimmel saying this opinion might make some fellow partygoers "uncomfortable."

    He's irrelevant so nothing he says matters.

    Doesn't he have a concealed carry licence? so it's not that surprising he has those views... and frankly in his position I see the need, so many nut jobs around ,especially since they shut down the old asylums. But I am surprised he is so vocal about those views.

    And yet, he supports anti-gun pols who deny the right to the average person.

    The rich are different, laws dont apply to them.

    Howard is paranoid. He's mentally ill. That's why he surrounds himself with security 24/7. Owning a gun makes him feel more masculine. If a situation ever occurred that would require him to protect himself or someone he loved with a gun, he'd revert to what he is and has always been---a coward. If someone jumps out from behind a wall and yells---BOO!!! Howard would crumble to the ground and curl up in a fetal position in a puddle of his own urine.

    Anthony has been saying this for the last two years. Did Howard also steal the "picture two people in a knife fight, " and the "segue into a gang fight" themes?

    Hard to believe Breitbart would care about anything hypocritehowie has to say. At least they posted it under "big hollywood" where it's just stupid stuff.

    I just wish that 13-year-old Howard had his Great Equalizer in Roosevelt. The man was whipped with chains daily by tough young brothers -- just for being white and owning pants. Dirty Howie could've personally reversed the neighborhood's white flight, and racked up a body count that would make his Vietnam fantasies seem modest.

    It is surprising that Howard Admits to being into guns. I'm sure a lot of his Hollywood friends are Anti gun. I have a feeling some of them are closet gun owners too.

    I'm amazed that he still has his stance on the 2nd amendment. He's right, but I figured his Hampton buddies would change that. Although I'd bet everyone of them has a gun, they just don't want common folk to own them.
