Bill O’Reilly spoke out last night about the need for gun control. Pretty soon, the momentum from this latest tragedy is going to force the morons running the Stupid Party to wake up or lose so badly in down ticket elections they will have no power nor influence on politics in Washington, D.C. at all.
With his poll numbers in free fall, it looks like Donald Trump is attempting to make a “pivot” to the center of sorts on the issue of gun control.
In a Twitter post today, Wednesday, Trump said that he planned to meet with the National Rifle Association to talk “about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no fly list, to buy guns.”
So even donald is throwing the NRA under the bus, after receiving their endorsement.
This latest tragedy may give local idiots like F&Bacon and dork opportunity to continue talking out their anuses about how gun control is off the table, but they may find themselves as part of an ever shrinking minority. Up to now, it has taken a direct death or close call for Congressional and Senate Republicans to take pause on this issue. Meanwhile our board trolls are too dumb to flinch when the bullets of logic are grazing their hair.
Anyway, Bill said:
‘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. New laws are definitely needed in the age of terrorism and mass murder. The FBI and other federal agencies need the power to stop suspected terrorists or other evil doers 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, although as Talking Points has stated many, many times, no society will ever stop all gun crimes, especially in a country which has hundreds of millions of guns already in circulation.’June 15, 2016 at 8:36 pm #20816VitalogyParticipant
I hesitate to say this, but if this massacre is not a turning point, the turning point is soon to come because the next, bigger event is already in the planning and will sadly happen. And this is a result of the lax US gun laws that allow terrorist wannabes to get what they need to commit mass murder.June 15, 2016 at 9:03 pm #20817BroadwayParticipant

You really don’t need to work so hard at showing how dim you are. We get it.June 15, 2016 at 10:09 pm #20829skepticalParticipantJune 17, 2016 at 12:15 am #20863Andy BrownParticipant
Broadway, posting about box cutters underscores only your total ignorance of the problem.June 17, 2016 at 5:55 am #20872AmusParticipant
Box cutters were banned airplanes after it was determined that they could be misused in that way.
Apparently the Boxcutter Lobby isn’t all that powerful.
