Bill Maher, host of the HBO show “Real Time”, cautioned Democrats to not use firearm restrictions as a major policy objective of their 2020 election platform.

Maher explained during a panel discussion on his show June 7the issue is not a good strategy for the party. “We’ve lost elections before on this issue, which is not a winning issue for Democrats,” he said. “First of all, liberals should learn more about guns. I don’t know much about guns because, again, I don't care, I don’t like them, but I hear this from gun people.”

Maher explained later in the same segment liberals need more than rhetoric to affect change.

“If you did everything that the Democrats wanted ... I still think you would have this problem because it's much more complicated … You’re going to be disappointed if you think just doing what they want gun-wise is gonna solve it,” he said.

While stating that he doesn’t like guns, Maher said he still owns them for protection as a necessary precaution.

I don’t like guns. [I] have some, don’t like them. [I] have it for [an] emergency, like an antibiotic,” Maher said. “Some people do [like them]. Lots of people do and their view is, ‘Yes there is a violence problem with guns, but not me. And you’re going after me.’”
