News Corp. chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch expressed support for an automatic weapons ban tonight following today's shooting in Newtown, Conn.
"Terrible news today. When will politicians find courage to ban automatic weapons?," Murdoch wrote on Twitter.
Murdoch made a similar call following the theater shooting in Aurora, Colo., in July: "We have to do something about gun controls. Police license okay for hunting rifle or pistol for anyone without crim or pscho record. No more," he tweeted.
News Corp. owns Fox News, where contributors have been objecting to calls for gun control throughout the day.
Right Murdoch, for everyone except the elite and their bodyguards.
I call for a ban on Rupert Murdoch....
Um... automatic guns are ‘banned’.
Just another dumbass who doesn’t know what an automatic weapon is.Or what the second amendment means either.
Oh, the shooter was using an M249 Squad Automatic Weapon, Murdoch? I hadn’t about heard that. What an idiot.
Ban alcohol. Ban freedom. Ban free speech. Ban anything you can think of.
Wasn’t there a ban on automatic weapons way back int the thirties?? He, like the rest of the MSM he’s in don’t know the difference between a bike seat and a fish.
Why should my civil rights be violated for the actions of a murderous psychopath, Rupert, you f*cking *sshole?
I did nothing wrong.
Anybody know what kind of weapons were used. I’ve been out of the net all day. I don’t think a female kindergarten teacher would own automatic weapons. Kindergarten students aren’t really all that dangerous.
We don’t need gun control, we need LUNATIC control!
Its those damn gatling guns I tell ya!
I bet the number of Class III permit holders who have murdered someone are around zero and one.
How about banning forceps and syringes?
Remember when the oxygen thief Ted Kennedy’s bodyguard was busted for possessing submachine guns at the Senate building?
Ban cars and trucks!!!!!!
