He got it 100 percent right.
Bill O’Reilly was fed up with President Barack Obama’s gun agenda in the wake of the Roseburg, Oregon, shooting. During his Thursday night show, O’Reilly went off-script and delivered a stunning rebuke to the president, shattering his statements in just two sentences.
“You’re not going to change the Second Amendment,” O’Reilly said. “I have a right to protect myself.”
“I don’t have a script here. I am just talking to President Obama right now,” O’Reilly said at the beginning of his talk.
O’Reilly pointed out that Obama’s former home, Chicago, has some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation and yet it’s still one of the most violent cities in the nation.
“You don’t even mention the carnage in Chicago,” O’Reilly told Obama. “You mention the individual things, like what happened in Oregon. But Chicago, it’s like it doesn’t even exist.”
O’Reilly also said that we could do better at enforcing the gun laws that are on the books as opposed to passing new ones, although he suggested a 10-year minimum sentence for anyone convicted of a gun crime would be a reasonable way to reduce illegal gun usage.
