Because none of these self-proclaimed Conservatives are actually Conservative. We only have a few real Conservatives in the media... Rush is the Big Kahuna.

I would saythat they are not genuine bona fide Conservatives in the first place.I would also add that “judas” should also be in their name somewhere.

They are letting emotions override logic. Humans, including “conservatives,” have a difficult time coping with the fact that horrible things can happen to anyone at any time and there is nothing you or anyone else can do to stop it. They grasp for solutions. In some cases, it’s banning guns and in other cases it’s owning one.

“Conservative” talking heads?

I don’t think so.

Bill O’reily is just a self engrandizing egomaniacle idiot.

These cretins hear the phrase “assault rifle” and think that means you can stroll into a Dicks Sporting Goods and purchase a full auto AK-47 as seen in the Rambo movies.

Medved? Who is this guy? Where does he broadcast? Is he offshore and trying to stay afloat?

Medved is an old movie reviewer that tries to play a conservative radio show host. He used to fill in for Rush before Medved became syndicated.

I think that's correct. Although they are hardly immune from the tendency, I might still hope that as a matter of philosophical grounding, conservatives would be less likely to substitute emotion for reason.

I used to hold Medved somewhat in esteem due to his movie books, going way back to the early-80s, and would occasionally catch his radio show. But I vividly remember listening to his show one day back around 2007, during a long drive home, when he just went all-in with his pro-amnesty, pro-illegals argument.

I stopped listening to Medved then and there. Turned him off and never tuned in again.

This might come as a surprise but Medved is not a conservative he is a republican. He is often on the wrong side of the issue and he hates libertarians. As a alleged reformed leftist ( he claims) I think he still has a little left in him.

He has blasted any callers to his program that charged Barry as a socialist or marxist belittling them and defending Barry as just a misguided liberal but a nice guy.

***Add Bill Bennett to the list.***

Bill Bennett was pro-gun until Columbine. Cal Thomas also jumped on the anti-gun band wagon at that time.

Several Senators have come out as anti-gun people in the last few years.

Others who were pro-gun that jumped on the anti-gun bandwagon in the past were...

Dennis DeConcini.

Ben Nighthorse Campbell (who has changed parties and came back as a pro-gun Senator)

John Dingell was an NRA director who resigned to vote for Clinton's assault rifle ban.

This is how an assault rifle ban will pass!

Congress will be given a "crime control" bill which will contain a ban and lots of money to the States for "crime control". It will pass because that is how the 1968 gun control law was passed, AND the 1962 assault weapons ban was passed.

This is what the 2012 nominee as the Republican Presidential candidate had to say about guns, and these are republicans that you are complaining about.

Mitt Romney: ““These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.””

Did anyone see O’Reilly spewing his ‘expert’ opinions in regards to the “AK-15” assault rifles last night?

What an idiot.

These guys are not conservative.

They are not usually raving leftist lunatics which is better than most liberal liberals, but that does not make them advocates for the conservative point of view.

O’Rielly is a religious/political Catholic (traditional democrat; a Marxist ideal with a Catholic social order) and Medved is a Jewish man who considered “controversial” and even conservative, because rejects the Marxist atheist agenda of limo-liberal Jews in the dem party.

so called conservative

There. You answered your own question.

Don't cave to the leftist propaganda. They want conservatives to believe the gun control battle is lost even before the battle is begun. They hope conservatives will simply surrender. It's propaganda.
