Bill O'Reilly Loses It During Gun Control Debate

When you state "assault rifles" are you referring to Semi auto or fully automatic? Semi automatic rifles are only sold with 5 round "magazines" in some hunting rifles, and in the military style rifles only in liberal states with restrictive gun laws, such as California. In OK we can purchase "military style" semi automatic rifles with high capacity magazines without the approval of "big brother." Fully automatic rifles (meaning multiple shots fired with one squeeze of the trigger) are controlled by the ATF and are legal to own IF you pay the $200 tax and go through a background check.

Last night on the O'Reilly Factor, the debate between Bill O'Reilly and Rep. Jason Chaffetz got extremely heated after O'Reilly called for Congress to pass a law requiring the registration of all "heavy" weapons to be reported to the FBI because it "makes sense."


First off, if you want to buy a machine gun legally, you can't get one unless you get a special permit from ATF. O'Reilly grossly misstated the facts. You cannot go buy a mortar or a full automatic machine gun at any gun...
