Skip to comments.What is with conservative talking heads caving in on the Second Amendment? Vanity

So yesterday I heard Michael Medved on the radio (noon pacific time) and he was beating up on "assault" weapons and gun makers who were only selling to make a "profit..."
He was literally going down the liberal anti gun line... then when a few callers took him to task on it he talked over them and hung up.
Then there was O' Reilly on Fox who started off with a good talking point, but then started whipping on the stuttering 2nd Amend foundation guy (Gottleib? .... not a good showing for him).
Neither so called conservative host voiced the affirmative uses of guns in contemporary times.
Its terrible to see the so called conservative voices folding under pressure...but to see them turn on a core values such as gun ownership does not bode well.
I hope others see more positive representations out there but I am not seeing it.
It seems we need to remind these folks who pays their bills.
I’ve never been able to stand Medved and O’Reilly is the biggest douchebag on the planet.
Well at least not many of us on this forum have caved on this issue. That seems like one issue we can unite on in this forum?
The media manipulates these conservative commentators as puppets and they don’t even know it. The media and democrats are exploiting the mass shootings to take away our individual rights and to empower government.
The media know they are egging on the next star,promising them fame and immortality if they will just try to top or match the current mass shooter.
The mainstream media causes these shootings.
These idiots or psychos shoot people for the fame the media will give them.
The media makes these shooters household names.
Our real friends are being identified.
Your first mistake is in assuming that Medved is a conservative.
Medved is NOT a conservative. He only masquarades as one on the radio. He is a RINO extroidinaire. I also heard this broadcast. He has always been timid with his support of the 2nd Amendment acting as if he really isn’t comfortable with it and now he has come out of the closet on this as with a few other issues.
The liberal left have so much anger they use all weapons at their disposal to bash their way to what they want. Gun Rights will now be the new race card against those with common sense.
Neither of the two ‘hosts’ you mentioned are conservatives. medved is a liberal masquerading as a conservative for a paycheck, and o’really is a megalomaniac with no core conservative principals.
O reilly is a liberal wad. Can’t stand him, never could. Big talk, nothing else. But please buy his mugs and t- shirts. haha
I've come to the sad conclusion that most of the public figures on the "Conservative" side, are not my real friends at all.
The list goes on and on. The schools are against us. The media is against us. The Democrats are against us. And an awful lot of high-profile Republicans are against us.
My real friends? Darn few these days.
Do these guys do their shows behind guards who are armed?
>>Ive never been able to stand Medved and OReilly is the biggest douchebag on the planet.<<
Rush was right when he called O’Reilly “Ted Baxter.”
“and the irony was, he was a VEGETARIAN!”
You think Medved and O’Reilly are conservatives?
pissed off because their taxes are going up?
these are effete elites who don’t like armed serfs or competing nobles.
It is NYC mindset disease.
They are rarely clear thinkers.
The response to this nonsense is very simple:
"It breaks my heart that an evil lunatic shattered your family and murdered your loved ones.
"I respect your deep grief.
"Is it just, then, to demand that I should now forfeit my right to protect my loved ones and leave them defenseless against the next evil lunatic?
"I am very sorry for your loss, but that is not justice."
It’s because they aren’t conservatives.
