Howard Stern: “I’m just a sheep, I’ll admit it, but I’m not for taking away people’s rights.”

Howard has been an avid defender of the Second Amendment on his show. In June, he slammed Democrats for pushing gun control in the wake of the Pulse nightclub terrorist attack in Orlando.

The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states. A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state. If we can do that for driving – which is a privilege, not a right – then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege. – President-elect Donald Trump

Howard Stern Gun ControlHoward Stern has come out in support of President-elect Donald Trump’s plan for concealed carry permit reciprocity in all 50 states.

“When you think about it, if somebody is a legal and responsible gun owner, let’s say in Massachusetts, why when he crosses the border is he suddenly an outlaw?”

Co-host Robin Quivers agreed, adding, “Each state has to declare — permit you to carry or not, and so as you go from state to state you are breaking the law if you continue to carry your gun. If it was national, you would just be able to carry in any state.”

“It makes total sense. I support that.”

Robin also pointed out that the majority of concealed carry licensees “are the most law-abiding people in the country.” She continued, “So why not give them the right to carry wherever they are?”

Stern argued that concealed carry permits should be similar to driver’s licenses.

“What if you got a license in Maryland,” he said, “and then every state you went to you had to get another license.”

“It doesn’t make any sense. It’s a total [expletive] on the Second Amendment,” he said.

Howard Stern: CNN combing through tapes and dragging up statements that Donald Trump might have said

ac360CNN published a story at the end of September which was picked up nationally, Howard Stern Says Trump Backed Iraq War In 2002. Howard started his show last week by clearing things up after CNN took him out of context to create a scandalous story. Stern went on to say he wasn’t sure how “CNN came up with that headline.”

“I emailed Trump,” Stern said, “and I wanted to explain to him that [‘Trump backed Iraq War in 2002’] is not what I said.”

Howard Stern: So, then there was a big screaming headline on CNN — ‘Howard Stern Now Confirms.’ There’s a picture of me and Trump in an adversarial-type situation that…

Robin Quivers: You didn’t confirm anything!

Howard Stern: Yeah, that ‘Howard Stern now says that Trump is lying about…’ Yeah! This was on CNN. Big headline and they brought people in. They were having a discussion — a panel discussion. And I was sitting there and I…

Robin Quivers: Can they really do that? You didn’t say anything!

Howard Stern: Nothing! I said nothing new. And so I emailed Trump and I wanted to explain to him that, uh, that is not what I said. They took the tape. I don’t provide tape to people. They’re now combing through tapes and dragging up statements that he might have said.

Robin Quivers: Well, you see what the press does. They make up things!

Howard Stern: Yeah. I didn’t come out with it. The tape is what the tape is. Make of it what you will.

Howard Stern: I will say that Donald Trump was one of the best guests we ever had because he would kind of have this stream of consciousness and was not politically correct, and so he always made for a fun guest. And a lot of his stuff was in the spirit of that. But I think you would have to cut him some slack and say he’s doing it on the ‘Howard Stern Show’ in a fun sort of bit.

Robin Quivers: ‘Howard’s the Reason I’m Alive’

Robin opened up to Extra host Beth Stern, about how Howard Stern helped her through tough times. “It was rough for all of us because right away he took it to heart and I think he was more concerned for me than I was concerned myself.”

Beth chimed in, “He was up night after night throughout your whole ordeal, I was comforting him, you are our family, he loves you so much.”

Robin, “We love each other, we went on our business, it never had to be expressed like that, there was a certain point he took over.”

Quivers recently dedicated her book, “The Vegucation of Robin,” to Howard, concluding, “He’s the reason I’m alive.”

Robin Quivers Today Show Interview

After 9/11, Robin said, “I thought I would be one of the people who couldn’t help myself out of that (World Trade Center) building. If I was there, someone would have to help me. I’d be one of those people you had to come and get. And I thought, this is not any way to live and I need to figure out what’s wrong.”

What she figured out, and how she feels it helped her body to be strong when the cancer hit her in 2012, has been detailed in her book, “The Vegucation of Robin: How Real Food Saved My Life.” The book, which is available in stores now, is not a diet book or a cookbook, but it explains her journey from that revelation to getting her daily nutrition on track.

“When you consider that I went through chemo and radiation and hardly had any side effects — I saw other people and they were going through the same thing I was, my situation wasn’t complicated by other illnesses, other medications,” she said. “Basically I was strong going in.”

“I feel fantastic,” she said. “I’ve been declared cancer-free for about three or four months now. It’s just a matter of still recovering at home, past all that treatment that kept me out of the studio for this long. But I’ve been feeling really good.”

Robin Quivers Returns to Stern Show Studio

Howard Stern’s longtime radio partner Robin Quivers returned to the Howard Stern Show studio on Wednesday after a 17-month battle with cancer.

“I could never be without you again,” Stern told Quivers during his broadcast on SiriusXM Radio. “Seriously, I’ve been praying for this day and I’m happy that you’re here, and it makes me very, very happy.”

Quivers and Stern previously kept her cancer diagnosis and treatment secret and she had already rejoined the show, participating via a home studio.

Howard Stern considered quitting radio show?

Howard Stern’s wife has revealed that Robin Quivers’s cancer diagnosis led the host to consider ending his Sirius XM radio show.

Quivers recently announced on The Howard Stern Show that she had been declared cancer-free after undergoing treatment for more than a year.

Stern has previously described Quivers’s illness as “a nightmare”, and now his wife Beth Stern has revealed that the host initially mulled over stepping away from his radio program.

“I was by Howard’s side when he was with Robin and it was really a rough year… he said to me that if anything happened to Robin he would not continue his show,” Beth told Extra.

She continued: “This is a celebration, she’s cancer-free, and Robin is the most incredible, bravest woman I know and we love her dearly… she’s family to us.”
