Bill O’Reilly – A New & Powerful Anti-Gun Advocate
Ammoland ^ | 15 August, 2012 | Jim Shults

Posted on 08/15/2012 12:45:26 PM PDT by marktwain

USA --(Ammoland.com)- Moderate (never a conservative) Bill O’Reilly has as demonstrated through his comments over years, and those of the last couple of weeks, especially those on air this last Tuesday, August 14 2012, now easily established himself as the strongest and most powerful anti-gun, anti-NRA and anti-Second Amendment (which he claims to support) advocate in the Country.

His all-knowing, arrogant, impossible to correct and flat out lying (he knows the facts) in the face of facts, given to him by those who can contact him, are typical of the anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment comments we have heard for decades.

Statements such as “AK-47s and AR-15s are heavy-weapons” and “assault weapons and bazookas should not be available to people”, “AR-15/AK firearms can be easily be converted to machine guns”, “anyone can get a machinegun”, “people should not be allowed to have such guns” and so much more.

It all displays his left leaning arrogant anti-gun advocacy. BUT it is not ignorance—in his position he knows the facts from well informed people, he know the truth and yet he continues on his own personal propaganda war against firearms and the Second Amendment.

We can ask why, but then again why ask?

The pompous arrogant nature of this buffoon and his lies cannot be corrected, even by his on and off air friends. So why support his show and his advertisers any longer? If you do—don’t, (I never did because of all of the above on air character issues).

Tell your friends too, because while he may blow off in his blowhard way efforts of this type –the FOX network does not.

He needs to get a new job at MSNBC. Pass it along.

O’Reilly has never been a true Conservative.

He only plays one on TV.

BOR a blow hard ignorant moron too arrogantly certain of his own infallibility to learn a single fact on the issue. Every time he speaks on this issue he demonstrates a total ignorance of even basic facts. It is a serious embarrassment to him. I cannot understand why anyone watches this moron anymore. His ignorance on this topic is total.

I stopped listening to or watching anything that arrogant, loudmouthed, opinionated a$$hole had to say years ago, all he is interested in is money.

I always wonder how the anti gun crowd thinks they are going to get all the gun owners to give up their guns if they don’t send people with guns to take them.

Independent my @ss - he's a closet obama fan. He hates BIG OIL as well as the 2nd Amendment.
I also noticed years ago that while he talks about something conservative, like the Chick-fil-A CEO, the video/images he shows always represent the Lib side .. like the queers protesting in front of Chick-fil-A.
Same with same sex marriage - always has video of the queers smooching it up.

Bill is interested in power and how he can influence society. He has caught the cold of Journalists who lie to gain influence. He is not a conservative just an entertainer, without principle.

He is also a class warrior. The moment gas prices start going, he immediately begins to attack oil companies. Why does he suts up when gas prices go down? I really start getting fed up. Besides, he does not let his guests speak anyway. And listening to his endless ramblings is getting tedious.

Somehow, the grabbers never even try to describe how the "People" spoken of in the Second Amendment are different from the "People" as spoken of in amendments 1, 4, 9, 10 and 17.

Or maybe it's just an acknowledgement that some people are more equal than others.

I gave up on him long ago. I might tune in to catch Dennis Miller, or the quiz, or if Laura Ingraham is hosting. Otherwise I prefer Lou Dobbs over Shep and Neil Cavuto over BOR. Or maybe a rerun of Top Gear on BBCA.

Last spring he was on a Boston radio talk show, Howie Carr. I got through, I gave BOR the BOR treatment, talked right over him. They cut me off. That is what we should do to BOR. I think he has a radio show from some Liberal Foxhole.

fact is that most of those up in the north east have a different view to social issues, gun rights etc, because they grew up in a place, a region which puts out their hatred for anything American and values.

What pisses me off to no end is the cowards on our side who never discusss gun rights, the homostapo, , Lets face it this has been coming because of all the hatred put out by the homostapo and the left.

Looking at their websites it seems some want more of this and nothing will stop obama, Biden or their hate mongers from spewing more bigotry and hate

stoppped watching him and Hannity and most of FOX some times ago.

Social issues on FOX, what are they ? They ask.
Gun right, might get mentioned once in a blue moon.
Homstapo and their actions over the last year has been ignored thus letting this hate and shooting happen.

O’Reilly actually claimed that “ANY rifle can be turned into a fully-automatic machine gun with a few “minor” modifications” and that “people do it all the time”. The sad thing is that he makes statements like this and many people who don’t know a lot about guns don’t realize he doesn’t know his a$$ from a hole in the ground.

O’reilly is a well-rounded idiot. He’s equally stupid and ignorant on every subject. Bashing oil companies for the price of gas and being totally and willfully ignorant about guns are his strong suits, however. Whenever he bleats about gun control, he always uses the words “heavy weapons” and “bazookas” with the occasional “howitzer” thrown in.

The most entertaining thing about O’Reilly is his obvious sexual fixation. He loves sex stories and talks about them endlessly, all the while pretending to be a bluenosed prude. Charles Krauthammer should analyze him.

1. I wonder if O’Reilly has ever shot a rifle, pistol or shotgun.
2. If yes to #1, has he ever shot a commercially available AR-15 or AK-47 and fired the military versions for comparison? I doubt it.
3. I watch O’Reilly if I know he is going to have a good guest on and then only to hear the guest, not O’R.

O’Reilly’s typical tactic is to invite a noted expert on a subject to his show - in order that he can interrupt them to tell them HIS opinion on their area of expertise.

BOR is as far off-base on guns as he is on the issue of medical marijuana.

And what's with the constant sniffing/audible inhaling through his nose at the end of sentences? He sounds like Lily Tomlin's Ernestine the telephone operator character. Has anyone else noticed this? I think it's an affectation that he is not even aware of.

“1. I wonder if O’Reilly has ever shot a rifle, pistol or shotgun.”

Not likely. He avoided the military during the Vietnam war. He got a draft deferrment because he was a teacher at the time. He got out of teaching when the draft was no longer an issue.

Just like Dennis Hastert former house speaker, quit his teaching job the day the draft ended and was elected to a state office soon after.

He is not a conservative and never has been a conservative. AND, I think he’s a pervert.

“BOR is the ultimate bloviating pin head.

Boycott BOR. Send FoxNews a message.”

Agreed. Here’s what I wrote to Fox News:

“I have been a loyal Fox News viewer since well before the 2000 election. I don’t even watch the other networks anymore, as they are completely unbalanced. I also enjoy your commentators in the evening – well, all except one, Bill O’Reilly.

Mr. O’Reilly is completely off the deep end regarding the 2nd Amendment, and this is evident EVERY SINGLE TIME there is a shooting somewhere that he chooses to cover or comment about. He has a total lack of understanding about various firearms, about the very words and history of the 2nd Amendment and constantly demeans and demonizes those who have a contrary view. Frankly, I can excuse and understand ignorance, as there is a lot to know and no one can possibly know everything. But Mr. O’Reilly simply refuses to learn on this issue. Thousands of people write to him every time he does this, and his refusal to every issue a retraction of a factual misstatement, or to refrain from such misstatements in subsequent stories/opinion pieces, speaks volumes. I am certainly not alone in my beliefs – please read the following opinion piece: http://www.ammoland.com/2012/08/15/bill-oreilly-a-new-powerful-anti-gun-advocate/#axzz23ePLpBkh

Either Fox News takes O’Reilly to the woodshed on this issue – make him understand that while he is entitled to his opinion, he is NOT entitled to his own facts – or I will stop watching Fox News. Fox has a wonderful news team, but O’Reilly’s arrogance and rudeness has become intolerable.”

I don't know how ratings are conducted nowadays but if there is some way that your habits are monitored, then you are contributing to the problem by boosting this clown's listenership.

Did BOR take Ted Nugent’s bet for $10,000? BOR said he could buy a Class III full auto in 30 days (legally) and Nugent bet him $10,000 he could not (with the money going to a charity). BOR is an arrogant, ignorant, bloviating, fool.

What this brain dead fool is attempting to say is they are heavy fire weapons while the rest of the English speaking world talks in terms of 50 cal or 20mm and above. I would love to hand him 180 rounds and have him fire it on full auto.

I have no idea how the ratings are done. I can only say that I have never received any sort of survey or daily viewing fill in forms. Thus I don’t worry about it. Anyway, I’d rather occassionally watch O’R than c matthews and be continuily barfing.
