I've never been a Bill O'Reilly fan. Now I not only don't like him, I want to make sure that every person that I know who is concerned with the potential for Government interference with their exercise of the Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms is fully aware of his support for government confiscation of firearms during "states of emergency". Short video is below.
Every Governor in the country, as well as Mayors of large cities, have the power to declare a "State of Emergency" due to weather conditions, disasters, or other widespread or localized emergencies. The thought that one of these people could, at a single pronouncement, suspend my Constitutional Rights to own and possess firearms should be considered ridiculous.
Apparently, O'Reilly thinks it just makes good sense. After all.... if the government and police admittedly can't control rampaging mobs of looters and murders, it seems like a fine idea for the police to take away MY guns.
