HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher has a new phrase to describe staunch advocates of open carry gun laws: ‘ammo-sexuals.’

The comedian and political commentator said that the problem with the Second Amendment and guns is that they’re “beloved.”

“That’s why people stroke them, and name them and take pictures with them,” Mr. Maher said Friday night. “You guys aren’t just firearm enthusiasts — you’re ammo-sexuals.”

The comedian added that the only reason why recent open-carry advocates should ever take rifles into restaurants like Sonic is if they’re “robbing” them.

“Guns are legal, okay we get it,” Mr. Maher said. “That’ doesn’t mean you have to scare the bejezus out of everybody.”
