The gun control debate is raging forth with renewed fury.
Ruined media pundit Bill O’Reilly expressed his thoughts on the issue so tactlessly social media users instantly began attacking him. O’Reilly crudely wrote “This is the price of freedom” in a post describing the Las Vegas mass shootings.
Victims are still lying hospital beds, awaiting surgeries. Funerals are still being planned. O’Reilly’s opinions could have been expressed in a less inflammatory way. Being mowed down by an assault rifle during peacetime is something that no one should ever have to experience.
Bill O'Reilly, who has never lost someone he loves to gun violence, is here to tell you it's all worth it.

“Once again, the big downside of American freedom is on gruesome display,” O’Reilly wrote.
“The murderer had a number of deadly weapons in his room and you can count on the gun control debate to ramp up… But having covered scores of gun-related crimes over the years, I can tell you that government restrictions will not stop psychopaths from harming people.”
Liberals are pissed about his entire tirade, including the above the sentiments. Even conservatives, however, were uncomfortable with the below.
“This is the price of freedom. Violent nuts are allowed to roam free until they do damage, no matter how threatening they are… The Second Amendment is clear that Americans have a right to arm themselves for protection. Even the loons.”
Death in Vegas, politics as usual. Were you offended by Hillary Clinton bringing up the NRA while bodies are still in the morgue?
