Conservative political commentator Lauren Wright took the hot seat Wednesday morning during a discussion about the families of Sandy Hook victims reaching a Settlement of $73 million with gun manufacturer Remington. While Wright, a political science lecturer at Princeton, stressed that she supported “unreasonable gun reforms,” ​​she said the deal could lead to individuals filing lawsuits against gun owners. company – an argument the rest of the board quickly refuted. “You can let people do the right thing, but one of the reasons we have so many kinds of laws is ‘because people don’t! “Whoopi Goldberg said. “Now we have to babysit everyone and say, ‘You have to do the right thing.'”

After all four co-hosts praised the Sandy Hook family for blaming Remington for its role in the 2012 shooting, Wright initially seemed to agree. “It’s been a horrible tragedy, and every single person at this dinner table has an emotional reaction to this today, and that’s appropriate,” she said. “It also upsets me when I think about it. I really support conventional gun reforms, especially when it comes to military-style weapons.”

“I’ll have to mention it,” Wright continued, changing his expression. “We can all think of lots of examples where we don’t want a company to be sued if someone uses their product for illegal purposes. Think of a real GPS tracking device. Accuracy can be used to track someone Or this Apple battery – even a harsh household product that can be used to poison someone… We will no longer have any credit. company, if that’s the case.”

Sunny Hostin was the first to refute Wright’s argument. “The purpose of a gun is to shoot it, right?” she speaks. “So I think your argument – a lot of people make that argument, but the guns worked the way they were supposed to.”

When Wright said that “the solution to that is to change the law, not to sue people”, Whoopi tagged to help Hostin. “What happens when legislators sit and block those laws from moving?” she said, to which Wright replied that she should “include Democrats” in that statement.

“I’m not pointing the finger at anyone,” Whoopi said. If you get in the way of us making better laws for everyone. “It could be with the keyword you’re talking about. If four people are being followed and you say, ‘Listen, this is a problem’ and they don’t change it, then you should say, ‘Listen, take it off. bazaar!'”

“If we just think about Texas’ abortion law,” said Wright, “it also forces individuals to make laws to do justice.” “And in this case, it’s going to be the victim. It’s going to be the victim, and the consequences will be theirs. I’m just asking us to think about some other situation.”

Whoopi showed respect as she shut down Wright’s argument for the last time. “If we keep track of what’s going on, we have a better chance – like I said, like with cards. If you see it, and it’s working, and nobody’s stopping it – nobody’s stopping it. said, ‘Hey, we’ve got to do something,'” she said. “It’s for us where every human being says, ‘Listen, this doesn’t work for everyone. People are being chased down the street or being followed into their homes. We all have to. do something.” So we’ll keep an eye on this as we’ll see how it starts to work. “

Will Wright be able to make her mark on Thursday, her second and final day as a guest co-host, or will she once again fade into the background?
