On Monday, former Fox News host Bill O’ Reilly, who was fired after allegations of sexual harassment, wrote a blog post on his site about the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
This shooting left at least 59 people killed and more than 520 other people injured which makes this the deadliest mass shooting in American history.
In his blog post, he claimed that the shooting is “the price of freedom.”
He begins his post by writing, “Once again, the big downside of American freedom is on gruesome display.”
He then says that his experiences of covering gun-related crimes showed him that “government restrictions will not stop psychopaths from harming people.”
O’ Reilly wrote, “Public safety demands logical gun laws but the issue is so polarizing and emotional that little will be accomplished as there is no common ground. The NRA and its supporters want easy access to weapons, while the left wants them banned.”
“This is the price of freedom,” he continued. “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,” he wrote.
Following the shooting, Democrats called for stricter gun control laws. But the White House says it is not the time to talk about gun control.
During the press briefing today, Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated, “There’s a time and place for a political debate, but now is the time to unite as a country.”
