Bill O’Reilly Knows Nothing About Gun Laws

There is so much bad information in this video:

When O’Reilly got worked up the first time, I was just wishing that guy he was talking to was going to say “U MAD hahha that would have been priceless.

60,000 rounds LOLOL OMG…

Thoughts?

Always assumed that O’Reilly was an A-hole. That assumption is now confirmed. He paints a portrait of firearm transfers as being completely un-regulated. Couldn’t be farther from the truth. His machine gun, mortar, and cannon comments are off the charts ridiculous. He makes up a new “heavy weaponry” classification to bolster his argument.

Even without looking at the video, I love how they have the flash suppressor set aside from the rest of the gun, like it was some evil monster all by itself.

That said, one typically uses that type of flash suppressor to extend the overall length of barrels by pinning and welding it in place… I wonder if that SBS they just created is appropriately registered and tax-stamped?

60,000 rounds and the FBI is alerted!? So, how many SASS, IPSC, 3 Gun, IDPA, Olympic, Skeeet, Sporting Clays, Trap, etc. competition shooters is the FBI going to follow. 60,000 rounds is off season training. Thats the problem with this kind of talk, one man’s “arsenal” is another man’s weekend at the range.

I want to see one 3 Gun shooter on the news just once respond to one of these idiot questions:
Q: “Why do you need a 30 round magazine to hunt deer?”
A: “I don’t. But I do need a 42 round magazine to make USPSA Nationals.”

to have better gun control we need to need to have more guns in the hands of people that will use them correctly. the more people holding the less killing sprees will take place or a least they will not last as long. If 6 or 7 people had guns in the theater and started shooting back. maybe they could have got him or maybe they could have suppressed him enough for some people to get out.

i also think the dumber elements of the gun community help contribute to this too. ‘i have an ak47 dude;
well no, you dont, you have an ak47 lookalike. unless its full auto, its not an ak47. your sagia isnt an ak47 either, its a shotgun shaped like an ak47. And of course the folks that sell them as such. At least the m16/ar15 distinction is usually made.

hydepark July 28, 2012 at 06:12 pm

Actually, I’ve got to kinda correct you on something. I have a Norinco NHM-91. This is definitely in the “family” of Kalashnikov. So, the AK or Kalashnikov type design was introduced in 1947 (roughly). This means that basically NOBODY has an AK-47. The difference is model or family. So, yes, I do have an “AK.” It just happens to be a Norinco copy of the original design. It’s okay, my services here are always free of charge.

dave w July 28, 2012 at 06:29 pm

“The NHM-91 is a semi-automatic variant of the AK-47 rifle, and was built by Norinco and marketed in the U.S. by China Sports”
not an ak-47

Media does not report the facts!!! Facts are boring! Media’s job is to entertain, and since there are already comedy shows they need to get your attention a differetn way. So they sensationalize everything. Then people will watch! And tht is what it is all about. they don’t care about the issue they care about ratings. Poor ratings and you are out of a job. PERIOD!

James M&P July 27, 2012 at 11:42 am

Why is the president the media and now Bill Oreilly talking ab out AK47s? Cause they could give a rats ass about being correct. AK47 just sounds so sexy. Oreilly wants a Police state so that 60,000 rounds or “Heavy weaponry” is always investigated. I guess an AK47 would be heavy to Billdo it is about 10 pounds for the douche bag.

Reply

Cartridgeholder July 27, 2012 at 11:45 am

It annoys me how Bill keeps using the term “AYE-KAY-FOURETY-SEVUN” just to stirr images of full-auto baby killing assault weapons. A real full-auto AKM is really hard to come by, and the AKs on the civilian market are SEMI-AUTOMATIC. Can you say SEMI-AUTOMATIC? If a gun is SEMI-AUTOMATIC, it’s not FULLY-AUTOMATIC. So civilian AKs are not actual “AK-47s”, but semi-automatic copies with similar actions.

Reply

Frank July 27, 2012 at 01:21 pm

Exactly. And it’s another reason why I’ll avoid saying, “News” when really it’s just “Media” (as entertainment).

It’s a shame Bill doesn’t actually have someone investigate the laws regarding full-auto and AK47s, which the perp didn’t even have at the time of his arrest.

It works though, my brother in-law knows nothing about guns. We talked about the killings and my bro in-law actually said, “yeah, but he had a gun that was as deadly as an ak-47.” Yes, people are that dumb, and yes, it’s because of news reporters just like this.

If I make it to my local IDPA club every month, that’s 1200 rounds a year per caliber, supposing only one run per match. I’ve been known to burn up a brick or two of .22lr on nice days, so I have about 3k rounds lying around. I sure hope Bill doesn’t report me to the FBI! Also, I need to find these gun shows where I can buy Class III/NFA without the tax stamp or background check. I needs me a Kriss with a can.

Yikes. Since when is Fox News advocating for gun control? The 2nd amendment is one of the only areas where I usually agree with neo-cons, and now they’re dropping off? Maybe they’ve run out of things to bash the Democrats on, and since they’ve been lax on gun control lately they decided to attack them on that…

I used to be an install tech for Dish Network. It was absolutely frightening how many people were addicted to Fox News. On numerous occasions the first question asked of me upon arrival was “How long is this going to take? Will it be up and running by 3? I gotta have my Glenn.” I wish I was joking.

I don’t give a shit if his campaign is doomed and 95% of the nation thinks I’m insane. I’m voting for Ron Paul.

What someone with an NFA needs to do is offer to take Bill out for a two or three day session including a gun show. He might actually learn something.

I suspect Bill is a hoplophobe and would refuse to take anyone up on the offer.

A howitzer, did he really say a fucking howitzer. I can’t stop laughing a fucking 155mm howitzer, with rounds that weight over 100lbs. ahahahah I am going to laugh my ass off all weekend. I’m sure their would be a line around the block for the newer Triple 7, self lay.

Bill-O, you’re a braindead moron.

“AK-47” doesn’t automatically mean “machine gun”. There are single-shot versions of this gun that aren’t fully-auto. Second, Holmes didn’t have an AK-47, he had an AR-15, which is a semi-auto, single-shot-per-pull version of an M-16. Getting a machine gun is governed by totally different laws with massive sharp teeth, to the point where if you devise a gadget to automatically pull a trigger, or even *accidentally* break a firearm so as to make it fire full-auto, you can be held liable for “having” an unauthorized machine gun! And woe betide you if you do something like file down a sear to make a gun fire full auto, or some such! You’re in deep shit if you do!

Gun shows don’t even CARRY full-auto firearms, because the reporting requirements are so onerous. You can’t just take one home from a gun show. Also, there are only a very few full-auto weapons even eligible for resale, ones made prior to a certain date, and they only become available rarely. It’s not practical to have one at a gun show. The prices on such weapons are astronomical, no one could AFFORD one at a neighborhood gun show!

They don’t have *explosives*, like bazookas or mortars at a gun show either. You might see shells, but they’re universally “demilled”, made harmless. The “mortar shells” Holmes had were not military mortar shells, they were commercial-style FIREWORK mortar shells, some of which it’s suggested he MADE. YES, skyburst fireworks are called “mortar shells”, look it up. They’re highly explosive, regulated as hell, and terribly dangerous if misused.

Lastly, none of the weapons carried by Holmes were “heavy” weapons. An AR-15 is neither “heavy” nor “high-powered”. It’s somewhat “high velocity”, but any centerfire hunting rifle wipes up the floor with it in terms of firepower — that’s a simple, objective set of numbers that can be looked up, a factor of bullet weight, muzzle velocity, and kinetic energy. Even a .30-06 has twice the kinetic energy and between 2 and 3 times the bullet weight of an AR-15. We’re not going to even MENTION a rifle like a .470 Nitro Express, that makes an AR-15 look like a .22 long rifle, much less a Barrett .50 BMG! At least that last is frequently used on the battlefield as a sniper weapon. The .470 is an elephant gun.

Lastly, Bill-O, every time there has been registration of firearms, it has led to confiscation. That’s why it’s a bad idea.
