Over the past week, Bill O’Reilly has been going up to bat for gun ownership against the monumental push for control laws after the Orlando shooting. During a Fox & Friends discussion today though, he seemed to lose his cool a bit and literally suggested slapping some sense into a man who tried to bring the subject before Congress.
It was three days ago when Representative James Clyburn (D. SC) was denied by Paul Ryan when he tried to ask if Congress would ever take action on gun control. The session descended into rowdiness afterwards as Clyburn’s fellow Democrats shouted and demanded new gun legislation.
As the Fox panel went over new details of the shooters behavior inside Pulse nightclub, O’Reilly was asked about why law enforcement didn’t do more to hinder someone with Omar Mateen‘s record. When he started going into gun control, O’Reilly proceeded to do a crude impression of Clyburn’s words and mannerisms right then and there.
“It’s not about terrorism; it’s about gun control,” O’Reilly said. “I just want to slap him, with all due respect.”
The panel proceeded to address other approaches to gun control and terrorism issues, though O’Reilly did say later that Congress should, “debate it and vote on it,” if certain weapons should be kept away from public access.
