• Geraldo Rivera on San Bernardino Shooting: ‘2nd Amendment Is Stupid’

    Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera tweeted that the “2nd Amendment is stupid” hours after the deadly shootings that killed 14 people and injured 17 in San Bernardino, Calif. on Wednesday.

    Rivera also praised President Barack Obama for his repeated calls for gun reform.

    From Breitbart:

    It is interesting to note that Rivera was criticizing the 2nd Amendment as “stupid” long before the attack in San Bernardino took place. For example, after a firearms instructor was killed in an Arizona gun range accident involving a 9-year-old tourist on August 28, 2014, Rivera responded by describing the 2nd Amendment as “blind and stupid.”

    On the day of the accidental death, he posted the following to Facebook:

    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 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.

    He also criticized the gun lobby after other mass shootings, including the Oct. 1 college shooting in Oregon that left ten dead.

    “The mass murder at Umpqua again reveals we are a gun sick nation,” Rivera said in a Facebook post. “All the 2nd Amendment bullshit aside, the gun lobby controls the country, and allows armed maniacal lunatics to roam free and kill.”

    Rivera must be oblivious to the fact that California already has some of the most stringent gun laws in the U.S and that didn’t slow down the criminals, at all.
