Bill O’Reilly on Bob Costas’ gun control comments - seeks harsher sentencing on gun crime - VIDEO
O’Reilly thinks gun crimes need harsher punishments
In the wake of the recent and tragic murder-suicide by Kansas City Chiefs football player Jovan Belcher, Bill O’Reilly responded to sportscaster Bob Costas’ views on gun control.
O’Reilly spoke about gun control issues in America as part of his ‘Talking Points’ segment on his FOX News Channel program ‘The O’Reilly Factor.’
O’Reilly was prompted by Bob Costas, who referenced a recent Kansas City sports writer who called for more gun control while he was presenting on ‘Sunday Night Football.’
O’Reilly stood firm with his belief that gun-control needs just that in America - control. He added that the right to bear arms is guaranteed in the Constitution.
However, he believes punishment for gun crimes needs to be fixed. “All gun crimes in America should be federalized and that includes illegal possession," said O’Reilly.
"There should be mandatory federal prison time for any person convicted of having a gun illegally, and if you commit a crime with a gun, that mandatory should be ten years."
Speaking to the tragedy of Jovan Belcher, O’Reilly said, "There will always be people like Mr. Belcher who lose control and you cannot disarm the entire American population to combat madness.”
