Bill O'Reilly Gun Control


Bill O’Reilly…  Anti-Gun or Just Uninformed?

Honestly, I have always liked to watch Bill O’Reilly.  But this debate with Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz over gun control laws has certainly changed my opinion of him.

This debate is a perfect example of how the anti-gun crowd tends to argue about gun control.

1.  Notice what Bill O’Reilly initially categorizes as heavy weapons: Mortars, Howitzers, Machine Guns.  Ok, those are certainly on the heavy side.  But, approx 2 minutes into the debate, suddenly heavy weaponry includes: semi-automatic, automatics and ammunition.  Really Bill?... Semi-Automatics? That is the majority of the rifles and handguns in the United States. Does you know what a semi-automatic is?

2.  Bill seems to think that pretty much anyone can purchase an AK-47, with no reporting.  Geezz… isn’t THAT a favorite argument of the anti-gun crowd.  Notice the following picture.  These came from his show. I’m guessing he thinks these are AK-47 (fully automatic) rifles.  WRONG!  They are semi-automatic rifles. They operate no differently than a semi-automatic hunting rifle.  But, they sure do look “scary”, and the anti-gun crowd loves to scare people! *All news agencies use pictures just like this when trying to demonize guns. Keep in mind, these operate no differently than a typical hunting rifle. But, if they showed the general public a wall of the typical hunting rifle, that wouldn't have nearly the same impact.. FEAR!

Semi-Automatic Rifles

3.  Has Bill O’Reilly ever been to a gun show? It sure doesn’t seem like it to me. He would have you believe that you can stroll right out of a gun show with a full-auto AK-47, and no one will know.  Honestly, I doubt you will see any full-auto AK-47 rifles at a gun show.  But, you will see TONS of the look-alike semi-automatic rifles.

4. 60,000 rounds? Isn’t it 6,000?  At least, that is what I have heard over and over from every other news agency. Did Bill O'Reilly just decide that 60,000 made for a more interesting debate?

Ok… without any further delay, here is the Bill O'Reilly - Congressman Jason Chaffetz Gun Control debate.




As I mentioned before, I have been a fan of Bill O'Reilly. I don't want to sound sappy, but this debate truly saddened me. Not just because of his anti-gun statements, but because he was so uninformed. I expected more from him than that.

Second Amendment

Bill O' Reilly has always been uninformed. By being the loudest he somehow thinks he wins his debates. Dude sucks on so many levels.

Seriously? Bill O'Reilly? I mean I know I share the same side in the 2-party system, but that dude is crazy. I'd rather it not be a 2 party system and come November, Johnson's got my vote, but regardless of his gun control opinions, he was already dead to me. He's such a douchebag! He just cuts people off that don't agree with him and in addition, apparently he hates semi-autos. You really should have ditched him before now, but I hope this makes you finish with him.

Bill O'Reilly, you need to shut the fuck up. Sit down at a computer and look up the National Firearms Act of 1934, you idiotic windbag. You CANNOT buy a fully automatic weapon in this country without the government knowing about it. You can't buy a Destructive Device without the government knowing about it. Yes, you can buy a semi-auto rifle from another individual and avoid paperwork. But that's not a goddamn machine gun, you dick.

I am more surprised that you haven't figured this out about O'Reilly LONG before this. He is often misinformed.

Agreed. I was dumbfounded by the depths of his ignorance . I could only sit there and shake my head in disbelief. For as much grief as he gives other commentators for not doing their research he sure stepped in it big time. And he had just been complaining about ABC and their lack of checking the facts. Its going to be a while before I consider him a reliable source again.

I used to listen to O'Reilly,(oh really?)back in the days when he started. Now he does no more investigation of his own. He believes what he is told, just like any other Liberal idiot. He has become embarrassingly uninformed. i am an independent, and I don't approve of his messages anymore.

I really wish he had done some homework on the subject before debating on TV. He really comes off as ignorant and close minded. I am normally a big fan but I am very disappointed in him this time!
