Bill O’Reilly went of script to let it rip on Obama about gun control. He reminded him of our right to bear arms and that Obama cannot take that right away:
“You’re not going to change the Second Amendment. I have a right to protect myself.”
O’Reilly’s passionate message came moments after Obama called for increased gun control measures following the mass shooting that left 10 dead, including the shooter, at an Oregon community college.
The conservative pundit noted that Obama’s home city of Chicago has a massive problem with gun violence despite having some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation.
“You don’t even mention the carnage in Chicago,” O’Reilly said to Obama. “You mention the individual things, like what happened in Oregon. But Chicago, it’s like it doesn’t even exist.”
O’Reilly then spoke on the issue of individual gun ownership, saying that police are a reactive force and that citizens should be allowed to arm themselves.
“I have a right to protect myself, because there are crazed animals like the guy in Oregon,” the Fox News host said. “There are people like that who will come after innocent people for no reason. And you are going to deny me protection? If I live out in a rural Oregon … where the nearest cop is 40 miles away? I can’t have a gun to protect my family?”
