    It's a knee-jerk reaction. Quite an exercise in psychology when you think about it.
    One step at a time. For many libs, making the decision to get a firearm is the toughest one they will ever make. Once she has made the purchase, assuming she follows through on the firearms training part, the rest will begin to make more sense as well.

    In order to be on my side, she needs to understand a lot more than just the mechanics of shooting or the moral axioms concerning shooting in self defense. She needs to recognize, acknowledge and advocate for the premise that the rights listed in the Bill of Rights are natural, inherent in every human being, and inviolate by government, no matter whether one is in their own home or "...being able to run around with one."

    I don't see it as my obligation to congratulate her for responding to a false alarm in her home by exercising a right that is inherent in every living person according to the supreme law of the land. Nor do I see it as my obligation to have patience for her lack of understanding of the fact of that source. I'll consider it a step in the right direction if/when she uses her significant bully-pulpit to advocate and educate on the truth about the source of our rights rather than just endure a holier-than-thou lecture from Baba Wawa and go ahead and buy a gun in spite of her unfounded objections.

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    It seemed to me that she understands the value of having a gun. It's possible not unlikely that she said the safe thing to defuse a confrontation with a stark anti-gunner. I sometimes do that myself when people say what about someone stealing your gun or what about your grandchildren playing with it. "I have a safe," is my reply. I didn't lie because I do have a safe. But that doesn't mean my gun is always in the safe. :)

    It doesn't put her on our side, but it's a step in the right direction. It's also significant in that it's an idea planted in the minds of the viewers of the show. There's no way to tell how they're affected by it, but it's an idea they probably wouldn't have been exposed to had she not talked about it at all.

    Have a little faith. Wow did I say that? Don't be so hard on her, one step at a time.
    First off it was a tough realization for someone of her ilk to admit that she, her hub are the first line of defense for her family. I do believe she will get training because she can't get a gun, be a liberal and be a "stupid" gun owner like the rest of us and not be highly trained. (please don't attack me, I am talking THEIR mindset) Faith in the individuals that train her will expose those zany ideas that they are protected with a gun in their safe.
    As far as her saying they will keep it in a safe...I believe she would say this to her liberal friends just to avoid their ridicule even after she has been enlightened.
    BC1: your Dad is correct but I was thinking much cruder terms.
    Blues: I understand and don't disagree but let's not beat her off the path of enlightenment. One step at a time.
    B2Tall: I was thinking the same thing. They should all experience a real scary situation though physically harmless.
    My own SIL when asked by me what would she do if she came home and the guy on top of her daughter didn't hear her come in over her daughter's screams.
    She said she had a bat by the front door. "Was that so he can sneak into her BR and beat her with it?" No she said she had a golf club up there.
    The story gets much funnier but end result was after convincing her she was in such good shape that her reaction of hitting the guy in the head with club or bat would be enough to splatter his brains all over their wall (doesn't take that much) but that it was ok to do that but not shoot the guy.
    So if I was 85 and didn't have the strength to do that she would deny me an "equalizer" where all I had to do was pull a trigger to save me and my wife.
    Her honest response was she did not want a gun and that she lives in a bubble and nothing ever goes wrong.
    I just couldn't argue with that reasoning and thanked her for her honesty. Go figure.

    Talking To be or not to be, that's a question?

    I am really surprised that his issue of her buying a gun was even allowed to be brought up on The View.
    I have a feeling that this not the last we will hear about this and I would be surprised if this is not completely contrived for effect. I refuse to watch anything with Baba Wawa in attendance let alone in charge.
    Mark my words something is going to happen and Sheri will change he mind and be so thankful she listen to someone or something and kept her family safe by not buying a gun.
    Wait for it........................

    Talking On her own side, publicity.

    Blue she is on only her side and that is very obvious from just watch the attached vid. That is without even delving into any of her historionics of the past. Having a revelation of this nature that deems your incite to require the purchase of a weapon just isn't logically rooted in fact. Having her security system adjusted and/or securing the dog at night seems the logical avenue for people like Sheri (those leaning to the left), NOT BUYING A GUN.
    Not everyone that owns a gun is on the side of those who support and would defend The Constitution. After all toooooooo many liberals own firearms, don't you know.

    It's actually quite amusing to me that I've been a shooter for close to 50 years (49 to be exact), have carried for over 30 years, have worked in industries where being armed was part of my job, have sought and acquired extensive advanced training on my own dime, have educated myself on the history of 2nd Amendment jurisprudence and advocated and been an activist against further encroachments of same, and last election I was hammered incessantly because I refused to vote for a gun-grabbing, abortion-profiteering, gay-marriage dictating globalist Republican named Mitt Romney.

    Now comes a well-known leftist who literally freaks out over a false alarm in her home and simply states she's going to buy a gun, while decrying "...being able to run around with one," and now I'm being rebuked because I think she's just another phony elitist who can (or will) never be an asset to the cause of restoration and preservation of the 2A! One step at a time to....where? She'll keep voting for Obama-types. I believe she works and lives in So Cal. If I'm right about that, who do you think she votes for for Senators? Feinstein and Boxer, that's who. If I'm wrong about where she lives, I'll guaran-damn-tee ya she votes for Feinstein-types in whatever state she does live in. Does she have a "View" about Benghazi? Fast & Furious? What was her "View" of Van Jones or Kevin Jennings? What's her "View" of Heller or McDonald? The DC or Chicago gun bans that are still in effect for all practical intents and purposes?

    Why is anyone giving her any attention at all? I honestly don't get what you think she has to offer the "gun community." She doesn't even have much to offer the entertainment community! Why would any gun owner slobber all over some leftist hack who won't change her voting patterns no matter what just because she decides to buy a gun? And then tell me how I should react to such "news?"

    I mean, do whatever y'all want to do or say, but honestly, I fail to see how or why it matters to any of you. If she wants to be meaningful to whatever 2A debate exists, then get on the show and get meaningful. Taking a stand that she's going to disregard what Baba Wawa thinks she should do is not taking a stand for the 2A. Only taking a stand for the 2A is taking a stand for the 2A!

    She could get naked and flash the burglar and hit him with a bat while he tries to recover his vision.
