Bill O’Reilly dealt with the Second Amendment on his show this evening. While he believes in the Second Amendment, his solutions to gun violence, most of which is tied to drugs and gangs, are very controversial.
O’Reilly wants strong gun laws and if a criminal is caught in the commission of a crime with a gun, it automatically becomes a federal crime with stiff mandatory sentences.
Sheriff David Clarke was on afterwards and said that he believes it would go a long way to stopping gun crime.
O’Reilly wants a National Registry which would give the federal government incredible power over gun owners in this country. He said he understood that people are afraid it would lead to gun confiscation. O’Reilly couldn’t possibly understand or he wouldn’t be advocating for a registry because the government has already shown their propensity to confiscate.
It’s hard to know what he thinks this will do. Law-abiding citizens will be the only ones registering their guns. It would serve no purpose.
He wants to limit the number of guns legal gun owners can have as a solution to gun crime.
NRA discusses the idea of a National Registry here.
This administration has in the past shown a desire to move towards National Gun Confiscation. Leaked confidential documents revealed their true intentions based on their own research.
