On Thursday, Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera reacted to the massacre of 14 people in San Bernardino, California, by the hands of Muslim terrorists that occurred on Wednesday, 12/02/15.
He tweeted that the Second Amendment, which protects the right to keep and bear arms, is “stupid.”
This is hardly the first time Rivera has expressed his anti-gun views. Last year, Rivera posted the following anti-Second Amendment message on his Facebook page: (emphasis added)
“Like I always say, the 2nd Amendment, the provision that gives every American the right to keep and bear arms, is blind and stupid. In its relentless pimping for the gun industry, the NRA has unleashed an avalanche of deadly weapons on this gun-crazy country.
Just as it protects access to weapons for cops and hunters, it also protects access to weapons for domestic abusers, mental patients, jerk-offs on the no-fly list, all-around dim bulbs, and now little children.
As the father of a sweet, smart nine year old daughter myself, the latest example of gross excess is the image of that pony-tailed New Jersey girl accidentally killing her gun range instructor. It is obscene and uncivilized to let a third grader shoot a fully automatic Uzi machine gun.
What was she training for, revolution? Invasion? Service in the coming post-apocalyptic social disorder? Stupid, but just another of countless examples of how far into insanity we have let the gun nuts push us.”
Rivera then went on to use the shooting to complain about the fact that he was fired from his radio show.
