    He just doesn't get it. There was never a time to understand the Oath Keepers then when he (O'Reilly) showed the clip of the police wresting that gun away from the old lady.
    Not does he not get it, I think he is concerned about how others in the media will portray him. I think that had a lot to do with his take during the interview. He sees himself as the pragmatic, balanced one.
    New Orleans is the exact situation that has us all worried. He never mentioned that there was another law passed that said that New Orleans could not take guns again like that. THOUGHT THERE WAS ALREADY A LAW LIKE THAT ON THE BOOKS.

    Following the "Ray Nagin" "Hurricane Katrina" & State Police & National Guard Second Amendment shenanigans...

    Congress and President Bush also saw the need to act to protect gun owners’ rights during emergencies. H.R. 5013, the “Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act,” was introduced in the House by Congressman Bobby Jindal (LA - 1) and passed the House on July 25, 2006 with a broad bi-partisan margin of 322-99. Senator David Vitter (R-La) introduced the Senate version of the bill and added it as an Amendment to Homeland Security Appropriations, which passed the United States Senate by 84-16, the largest margin of victory for a NRA-backed measure. On October 9, 2006, President George W. Bush signed this legislation into law.:

  5. I actually saw that show. I am not a huge fan of O'Reilly's and I don't know much about the 'Oathkeepers', whose leader was the guest. And to be fair to Fox, there was a libtard on the night before ranting about this group so Bill wanted to be 'Fair and Balanced'.

    But I was so pizzed off at the way O'Reilly took the position that it was OK to disarm folks during a state of emergency. The Oathkeeper guy kept asking him "So what part of the Constitution allows citizens to be disarmed in case of a hurricane?"

    But Bill has his own agenda. And in this case he was wrong.

    Not only does he think it is alright to disarm law abiding citizens he also thinks constitutionally protected rights can be suspended. Take a look at this excerpt from the article below: "Bill O'Reilly did respond the following day to those who said he was wrong in his viewpoint. His responses were less than reassuring. His viewpoint is that constitutional rights can be suspended and it is up to the court to determine whether it was constitutional. Statists who have a “big government” mentality think the court exists to solve every problem that politicians can conjure up."

    The courts are not the final arbiter of the law. The People ultimately have that power: Jury nullification, Constitutional Convention and last resort the 2A.

    The new Law (as of 9/30/06) states:
    Title VII of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5201 et seq.) is amended by adding at the end the following:

    `SEC. 706. FIREARMS POLICIES.

    `(a) Prohibition on Confiscation of Firearms- No officer or employee of the United States (including any member of the uniformed services), person operating pursuant to or under color of Federal law, receiving Federal funds, under the control of any Federal official, or providing services to such an officer, employee, or other person, while acting in support of relief from a major disaster or emergency, may--

    `(1) temporarily or permanently seize, or authorize seizure of, any firearm the possession of which is not prohibited under Federal or State law, other than for forfeiture in compliance with Federal law or as evidence in a criminal investigation;

    `(2) require the registration of any firearm for which registration is not required by Federal or State law;

    `(3) prohibit the possession of any firearm, or promulgate any rule, regulation, or order prohibiting the possession of any firearm, in any place or by any person where such possession is not otherwise prohibited by Federal or State law; or

    `(4) prohibit the carrying of a firearm by any person otherwise authorized to carry firearms under Federal or State law, solely because such person is operating under the direction, control, or supervision of a Federal agency in support of relief from a major disaster or emergency.
    Mr. O'Reilly is dead wrong.

    Furthermore...
    `(b) Private Rights of Action-

    `(1) IN GENERAL- Any individual aggrieved by a violation of this section may seek relief in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress against any person who subjects such individual, or causes such individual to be subjected, to the deprivation of any of the rights, privileges, or immunities secured by this section.

    `(2) REMEDIES- In addition to any existing remedy in law or equity, under any law, an individual aggrieved by the seizure or confiscation of a firearm in violation of this section may bring an action for the return of such firearm in the United States district court in the district in which that individual resides or in which such firearm may be found.

    `(3) ATTORNEY FEES- In any action or proceeding to enforce this section, the court shall award the prevailing party, other than the United States, a reasonable attorney's fee as part of the costs.'.

    "Since March 9, 1933, the United states has been in a state of national emergency. A majority of the people of the United States have their lives under emergency rule. For 40 years freedoms and governmental procedures, guaranteed by the Constitution have, in varying degrees, been abridged by laws brought forth by states of national emergency."
    Senate Report 93-549 (1973).
