Gerald Ford was POTUS.
Gerald Ford was POTUS because Nixon had to resign for doing far less evil than the current scandal-ridden Empty Suit in the White House.

Once again, O'Reilly honed in on the obvious with a guest PhD to back it up with studies.
Kids (and young adults) today are participating in such violent video games - the kind that the military uses to train Navy Seals - that studies have shown they bring out violent acting out.
So instead of worrying so much about banning guns, the focus should be on banning gratuitous violence in video games and movies.
Bill O'Reilly talks out of both sides of his mouth. Here's something he said on his show in December 2012;
"I know lots of kids who play these games, they're good kids, they're normal, they don't act out, they don't do anything destructive, but they love the games. And the reason they love the games is because it empowers the children. Children are in control. Children are killing the bad guys. The thrill of the kill is right there in front of their face. But then they go out and they're kind, loving children. So I don't think everybody who plays these games are adversely affected by them. Would that be true?"
No one's talking about banning guns twit, just keeping them out of the hands of those that shouldn't have them.

Republicans want to cut spending as part of raising the debt limit but also demand on repealing Obamacare that lowers the deficit.

Are they just stupid?

Have Republicans said how they will pay for any repeal? Or is it yet another piece of unfunded Republican legislation as they did under Bush that led us into this mess to start with.

Right whiners are just plain dumber than sh*t.

Background on Gun Control

Statistics on Gun Ownership
40% of all US homes have guns
81% of Americans say that gun control will be an important issue in determining which Congressional candidate to vote for.
91% of Americans say that there should be at least minor restrictions on gun ownership;
57% of Americans say that there should be major restrictions or a ban.

Child-Safety Locks
In 1996, 140 children died after being accidentally shot.
About 1,500 children are hurt by guns every year.
"Trigger Locks" require entering a combination to use the gun (or some other locking method); they are intended to reduce inadvertent use by children or other unauthorized users.

Background Checks
The "Gun-Show Loophole" means that there are no background checks when purchasing guns in a private transaction.
Guns sold at gun shows through dealers ARE subject to background checks; only those sold privately are not.

Right to Bear Arms
The Supreme Court ruled in 1939, in a case called "US v. Miller," that the 2nd amendment only protects guns suitable for a well-regulated militia -- for example, sawed-off shotguns can be banned because they're not "ordinary military equipment".
Since 1939, the Supreme Court has not heard any further 2nd amendment cases; the most recent ruling prior to “Heller”, in 1997, overturned part of the 1993 Brady Bill, but did not address 2nd amendment rights.
“Heller” refers to a ruling on the issue of “individual rights”. The Supreme Court ruled, in the 2008 case called “District of Columbia v. Heller”, that the 2nd Amendment does define an individual right to gun ownership, as opposed to a “collective right” for a state-run and state-armed National Guard.
Much discretion was left to the states and to Congress, but Heller opens up the issue to further Supreme Court cases.
Hence, gun control issues are still primarily the subject of Congressional legislation.
Federal discussions on gun control often focus on the “D.C. handgun ban” because Congress has direct control over the gun laws of the District of Columbia. One such law was at issue in the Heller case.
