In the wake of the unspeakable horror of the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest music festival, liberals in knee-jerk fashion have been quick to politicize the tragedy and assert that the shooting is proof that our needs new legislation restricting Americans’ gun rights.
However, former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly struck back and pointed out the basic fallacy in their argument that tightening gun control through new laws would have prevented this gruesome massacre. In a write-up in response to the tragedy, O’Reilly pointed out that people with severe mental health issues will not be impeded by tighter gun restrictions if they are dead-set on committing crimes.
Wrote Bill on his website, “Having covered scores of gun-related crimes over the years, I can tell you that government restrictions will not stop psychopaths from harming people. They will find a way.”
He went on, “Public safety demands logical gun laws but the issue is so polarizing and emotional that little will be accomplished as there is no common ground. The NRA and its supporters want easy access to weapons, while the left wants them banned. This is the price of freedom. Violent nuts are allowed to roam free until they do damage, no matter how threatening they are.”
O’Reilly concluded, “The Second Amendment is clear that Americans have a right to arm themselves for protection. Even the loons.” Do you agree with Bill on this important issue?
