“Bill O’Reilly stunned many viewers Tuesday night when he called for some measures of gun control to be implemented after the terrorist attack in Orlando, Florida, that claimed the lives at least 49 people — the deadliest mass shooting in US history,” yahoo.finance.com reports. And here it is, straight from the horse’s . . . mouth. [Click on link to watch.]
There is too much gun crime in the USA, and high-powered weaponry is too easy to get. That’s the fact. So let’s deal with it. We all have the right to bear arms, but we don’t have the right to buy and maintain mortars. Even if you feel threatened by gangsters or a New World Order. No bazookas, no Sherman tanks, no hand grenades.
That’s because the Second Amendment clearly states the government has a right to regulate militias, made up of individuals. They have that right in the name of public safety. Therefore, Congress should debate what kind of weapons should be available for public sale. And the states, the individual states, should decide what kind of carry laws are good for their own people.
The Fox News superstar said new laws were “definitely needed” in the face of new terrorist threats and mass murders.
The FBI and other federal agencies need the power to stop suspected terrorists or other evildoers from buying weapons. That law needs to be very precise.
Also, gun dealers all across America should be required to report the sale of certain kinds of guns, heavy weapons, directly to the FBI. Not handguns, not talking about that, but other weapons that would be defined by Congress. That is a sane approach and would make it a lot tougher for the Omar Mateens of the world to get the weaponry to kill.
I so called this. Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly was, is and will always be a statist in populist clothes. He no more supports the Second Amendment than Hillary Clinton.
Time to circle the wagons boys! Just make sure we got the right people doin’ the circling.
