Why didn't Stossel

counter O'Reilly's claim of Britain's low gun murder rate with Britain's high violent crime rate statistics? That's a natural rebuttal and a failure on Stossel's behalf.

O'Reilly came off as a left leaning journalist the entire interview.

Author of Buy Gold and Silver Safely

Also writing book We the Serfs!

Not only that...

But Britain doesn't report it's gun crime statistics the same way that America does:

what a GUN BAN has ALREADY DONE in our schools

I'll keep repeating this until someone pulls their head out of their ass and listens to me:

There WAS a TOTAL GUN BAN at that school in Connecticut, just like there's been a total gun ban at every school in America since 1990. Congress passed the "gun-free school zones" Act (part of the Crime Control Act) in 1990.


That is one of the most important factors that is left completely out of all of these interviews, debates, and news articles about school shootings, and even here on the DP people can't think of such an obvious thing to point out.

When I mention this to the average person who's upset about the shootings but knows nothing except what the demon media repeats over and over again, the person actually stops and pays attention. It cuts through all their ignorance about "the 2nd Amendment" and "the right to bear arms" (which they couldn't care less about) and gets right at what matters: the teachers and staff are rendered completely helpless to stop any person with a couple guns from killing multiple people at their school.

That's why 27 people can be killed at that school in Connecticut, but only 2 people were killed at the shopping mall in Oregon. The difference is there was NO GUN BAN at the shopping mall, so a bystander with a concealed carry drew their gun on that killer before the murderous rampage could go any further. Once the killer was confronted with an armed person, he killed himself instead.

WE need to stop repeating things that the average person cares nothing about and start talking about the most obvious facts about the existing gun control laws, not just argue about things that have not yet happened.

It's insane to try to convince people based on what MIGHT happen in the future when you can point out what a GUN BAN has ALREADY DONE in our schools.


not all of us have our heads where the sun don't shine...

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Giving up rights?

What does it mean when a society gives up rights people died for... to save lives?

It's an endless cycle of conflict and death. When we lose our freedoms we have to die to get them back.

Oreilly... screw you and your

Oreilly... screw you and your middle ground.... You are nothing more then a liberal.



'Nuff said

He also sang Love Me I'm A Liberal

conclusion: Jello is brain not ideology.

Alex Jones should have Jello on his show! Those two along with Rev. N0rb would sell out stadiums!

I am dusk icon. anagram me.

"Love Me I'm a Liberal", written in the 60s, is timeless.

You got me to listen to it again and I was just amazed how much that song seems to describe the FauxNews' talking heads. Keep in mind that the liberal of the 60s is a far cry from the liberal of today. Kinda weird to discover it would describe the likes of BillO and company. Maybe not so weird. Hypocrisy is timeless.

For those too young to know the song and those who remember it, here it is, with lyrics printed below: http://youtu.be/u52Oz-54VYw

And YES! Alex SHOULD have

And YES! Alex SHOULD have Jello on his show. That would be something to hear.


Word, "Love Me I'm a Liberal" was a very sarcastic song on a very good album I must say. I don't agree with a lot of what Jello says but I believe his heart is true and he generally despises corruption which I am in complete agreement with.

A quote comes to mind in re Jello Biafra

"I'd rather be strongly wrong than weakly right."

I'm sorry ...I just can't

I'm sorry ...I just can't watch O'Reilly try to sound like a pseudo intellect discussing anything let alone the dismantling of the second amendment..

O'Reilly said, that's why I'm

O'Reilly said, that's why I'm not falling for that liberal agenda! And I said ummmm, ok! But then said but do we really need an AR15? Lol, he thinks we're stupid.

Stossel sounded kind of wimpy

Stossel sounded kind of wimpy next to O'Reilly. (Oddly, I think I preferred Jones' performance.)

O'Reily trying to turn the

O'Reily trying to turn the neo-cons against guns just enough that they can push a ban.

O'Reilly states

He thinks assault weapons should "at least be taken out of the criminal element".

Have any of the mass shooters in recent history even had weapons related priors? I think not.

O'Reilly's Neo-Con is showing.

"guns at least taken out of

"guns at least taken out of the criminal element"....yes by taking out the criminals!

Did the very authoritarian

Did the very authoritarian O'reilly finally reveal himself as the lefty that he is when he gave high praise to Feinstein and advocated gun restrictions and tougher sentencing?


...It's beginning to sound like this is Piers Morgan using an American accent and wearing a Bill O'Reily mask. Surprise, surprise.
