This may be the single funniest thing that you see all day.
What is the incredibly funny bit, you ask? Great question. The simple answer is: What The View‘s Joy Behar just said about hunting.
Now, you may already be familiar with The View. If you’re not, it’s a commentary show with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and others often commenting with passion about things that they clearly have no clue about.
Do you think that I’m exaggerating? Your doubt is completely understandable, so, let me settle this for you once and for all… and give you a good laugh while I’m at it. The BLAZETV Staff quotes Behar from the show:
“But also, if you shoot with an AR-15 — let’s say you shoot a deer — you can’t eat it because you’ve basically demolished the animal,” added Behar, throwing up her hands.
Now, maybe you’re a doubting Thomas, and you just can’t believe that even Behar could be that stupid. That’s fair. I’m not sure that I would have believed it if I hadn’t seen it, too. So, you can watch the video below.
You’ll notice that the quote earlier wasn’t taken out of context. Behar really did say that shooting a deer with an AR-15 would make it inedible because it would demolish the animal.
Now, for those unfamiliar with deer hunting and AR-15s or those who think that Behar speaks the truth simply because she is on The View, a writer going by AnnieOakley gives some perspective. AnnieOakley writes,
Ahh, yes, the AR-15, firing the 5.56mm, a round so powerful it can literally destroy a deer beyond recognition.
(Legal Disclaimer: It isn’t lawful to use 5.56 for deer in several states because it is too small to consistently kill them.)
That’s right, what Behar says will demolish deer may, in reality, not be enough to kill a deer, much less demolish it.
My (unasked for) advice to Behar? Stop talking about things that you clearly have no clue about. Like guns.
