What the hell is wrong with Fox news? I’ve been getting more than a little ticked off with their reporting for awhile now and I am slowly realizing that blogs are about the only way to get any accurate news. Their ‘fair and balanced’ seems to be tipping on the side of socialism lately. I expect people like Bloomberg, Rahm Emanuel and Rosie O’Donnell to talk like idiots; it’s who they are. But now, we have people who have been on the side of the Constitution, joining their ranks.

Earlier this week, Mr. Bill ‘Big Ego’ O’Reilly starts out his show by suggesting that,

“Bill Moyers has no clue, no clue at all. He apparently believes that federal and state governments can actually control gun crimes. That’s so dumb it hurts.”

O’Reilly then followed it with,

“Anyone who sells a heavy weapon or ammo should be compelled to report the sale to the FBI. It’s a felony if you don’t. That’s what we should have in the U.S.A. and it just makes sense in this age of terrorism. Right now some gun dealers do background checks but nobody reports the sale of heavy weapons like AK-47′s to the feds. That’s insane.”

Oh really? Has O’Reilly even purchased a gun? When you purchase an AK-47, you fill out Federal Form 4473 in which you are asked a multitude of questions, including those about your criminal history. How about his comment

“Terrorists could just move in here, buy bazookas and the FBI doesn’t know about it. Here is how crazy this is. If you take a flight lesson, the feds get a heads up. But you can buy a machine gun and they don’t know.”

Can anyone list for me the number of crimes that have been committed by a legally owned machine gun? I have to laugh that Mr. O’Reilly calls an AK-47 a heavy weapon. News flash Mr. O’Reilly – heavy weapons are not carried in a duffle bag. It seems that Bill is starting more spin than stopping it these days. His new slogan should be, ‘The spin STARTS here’! Enough with the drama, Mr. O’Reilly. The Colorado shooting was done by a madman and more laws would not have prevented it. It is more probable that had the movie theater allowed concealed carry, a law abiding citizen with a gun could have slowed down the shooter thereby cutting the death and injury rate.

Now, lets move on to self-proclaimed “squish on gun control,” Bill Kristol. He argues that there is plenty of evidence to show that we need more gun control. He thinks it is unreasonable to control handguns or hunting rifles, but he thinks there should be moderate control on quasi-machine guns. Again, Fox is showing their ignorance. There is more fire power in big game rifles than some of the firearms he wants controlled! And what exactly is a quasi-machine gun? Is it a rifle that looks evil, would the Ruger 10/22, .22 caliber tin can plinker with a 25 round magazine qualify? How about the semi-automatic, Remington 750 Woodsmaster .30-06 hunting rifle with a 10 round magazine? This slippery slope is sliding deeper into a hole.

Based on their comments, I’m pretty sure both of these guys base their perception on how ‘mean’ the gun looks. I doubt that either of them have been to the range recently, but I’m pretty sure they both moisturize.

Looks like political correctness has infiltrated Fox News. Thank goodness we still have AWD bringing us the latest!
