Ellen Barkin can’t understand why anyone opposes gun control; Updated

For once we agree. It really is beyond her.

We’d send her the ten arguments against Bloomberg offered up earlier today by Forbes contributor Larry Bell, but it’s clear she’s not interested in a discussion.


Looks like we sold Barkin short. To her credit, she was able to engage in civil discussion with a Second Amendment supporter:

@thepantau @mikebloomberg Yes…tell me why it is reasonable for anyone not in the military to own assault rifles or hi capacity magazines?

— Ellen Barkin (@EllenBarkin) April 2, 2013

This is a bit of a climbdown. In her initial tweet, Barkin said she was unable to comprehend why anyone would oppose gun control. Here, she allows that reasonable people can disagree.

@thepantau @mikebloomberg And tell me why background checks, real ones, and waiting periods to go with them, are unreasonable?

— Ellen Barkin (@EllenBarkin) April 2, 2013

@ellenbarkin Well, reasonableness isn’t the standard. The right to bear arms is a right guaranteed under the Const. @mikebloomberg

@thepantau @mikebloomberg What then is the meaning or reason for the many Constitutional Amendments…like, say, the 2nd?

— Ellen Barkin (@EllenBarkin) April 2, 2013

@ellenbarkin The 1st 10 outline some (but not all) of the rights the people have & what the Fed gov’t can’t do. The later Amendments? (1/2)

— Miké (@ThePantau) April 2, 2013

@ellenbarkin The later Amendments reflect changes we make to rectify wrongs, for example (like Dred Scott) or to grant other powers to (2/3)

— Miké (@ThePantau) April 2, 2013

@ellenbarkin the Feds, like banning booze or setting up an income tax. (3/3)

— Miké (@ThePantau) April 2, 2013

@ellenbarkin My concern is this: I don’t think any of legislation proposed thus far would have prevented the tragedies. @mikebloomberg

— Miké (@ThePantau) April 2, 2013

@thepantau I think it should be much more than that, but in some cases, like Newtown, the answer is yes.

— Ellen Barkin (@EllenBarkin) April 2, 2013

That is another big concession. Many of the gun control measures being contemplated on Capitol Hill would not have prevented the Newtown, Conn., shooting. The shooter, Adam Lanza, used weapons he stole from his mother, so improved background checks wouldn’t have helped. A ban on “assault weapons” or a ban on high-capacity magazines probably wouldn’t have made much difference, either.

The discussion continued:

@thepantau @mikebloomberg What kind of arms do u think they were imagining while writing 2nd Ammend? Assault rifles?100 round mags? NO SIR!

— Ellen Barkin (@EllenBarkin) April 2, 2013

@ellenbarkin The Founders probably didn’t envision the internet either, but speech here is protected as well. @mikebloomberg

— Miké (@ThePantau) April 2, 2013

@thepantau Thank you for the civil talk & the agreement to disagree.That’s what makes a horse race.

— Ellen Barkin (@EllenBarkin) April 2, 2013

We doubt Barkin changed her mind about the need for gun control, but give her credit for discussing the issue in a civil manner.
