Out: Kochtopus. In: Gun owners.

Apparently Bette Midler enjoyed Twitchy’s coverage of her Koch-spiracy nuttiness so much, she’s back for more. On the agenda today: gun control.

This isn’t the first time The Divine Miss Gun Grabber has brought up gun control in the wake of the horrific Aurora murders. Like fellow celebs John Leguizamo, Rob Schneider and Henry Winkler, Midler ghoulishly politicized the tragedy mere hours after it occurred.

Today she admits gun owners “have rights,” but laments that those pesky rights compete with the “right not to be shot and killed while sitting peacefully in a theater.” Quite the deep thinker, this one.

The Twitterverse stepped up to school Midler on her gun control logic.

Oh, @bettemidler. Your logic is impeccable. http://t.co/N1AGAMI0 #facepalm

@BetteMidler I'm a gun owner. I've been to hundreds of movies without shooting anyone. Oddly enough, the majority of us aren't idiots.

@BetteMidler Guns weren't used on 9/11 or Oklahoma city to kill 1000's of people. It's mans inhumanity to man & U can't legislate that.

@BetteMidler People kill people – not guns, knives, box cutters, cars, etc. If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns. #justsayin

@BetteMidler Are the law abiding citizens shooting at you or criminals! If there were only 5 concealed holders in that theatre, less deaths!

@BetteMidler wasn't the gun, it was the man behind it !!!!

@BetteMidler @PegsKatzencats Check out Chicago's gun laws to violence ratio! Progressive gun control policies are written in innocent blood!

@BetteMidler I agree! We should pass a law against shooting people & murder. Wait, what? Already have 'em #proChoiceGuns

@BetteMidler when do you think criminals care about someone elses rights?

What say you, Ms. Midler? Back to blaming the Koch brothers for ruining your life?

Trees, huh? Nice change of topic.

Update:

And … she’s still going, backing up her “argument” with an inventory of shooting sprees.

Gun owners have rights. But what about folks who go to the movies? Don't they have a right not to die while doing so?
