Bill O'Reilly Loses It During Gun Control Debate

When someone asks me why I "need" to own an assault weapon or 30round mag, I ask them why they feel it is important to be able to stand on a street corner and protest. I don't question their need for using their First amendment rights, why do they feel it necessary to infringe upon my 2nd amendment rights? My "need" is none of their business. As long as I am responsible with my weapons, they have no interest in my possession of them. That is the kicker though. We have to be responsible with them. the kid in CT whose mother bought his weapon, was violating the law and a REALLY bad parent. She had a responsibility to ensure her son could not get hold of the weapons. She failed in her responsibility and paid the ultimate price.

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...
