Bill O’Reilly offers his perspective on what happened in Orlando, and does not believe the solution involves gun control.
The media love their own
so war deaths aren’t tragedy?
Oh finally a straight voice on the subject. I love the focus on the homophobia in this tragedy.
Western wars (mostly US Wars) have killed four million Muslims since 1990 but thats none of my business
Mandatory minimums can get extremely bad. Locking someone away for 10 years being caught with a bit of weed is ridiculous. AND the US ALONE makes up 25% of ALL prisoners in the FUCKING WORLD.
EDIT: I know this isn’t about weed but this is why many people are against mandatory minimums. The amount of prisoners the US has is INSANE also.
The NRA arms radical islamic terrorists!!!
Yes, guns and pressure cookers are to blame for radical Islamic terrorists attacking civilians. If these devices were banned, the Boston bombing and Orlando massacre could’ve been avoided. Those terrorists would’ve said “fuck it” and went to Wendy’s.
good lord did bill o’riely flip flop there hehe (I’m a Brit by the way)
Never thought I’d say this, but I agreed with Bill on so many points he made.
Bill O’reilly is an ass.
surprised by the unreflective applause in this audience to O’Reilly’s bluster, one of the most shameful displays I have seen in the late show audience.
Just so everyone is aware, In canada, if your crazy or schizo n you pass the gun test you can still buy guns, doent matter how many times you have been in the crazy house…..
This is the most level headed I”ve seen O’Reilly. Good to see.
Let the man finish talking. You want his opinion you invited him for it but you keep interrupting him and steering the conversation away from him explaining things. Where I come from that isn’t respectful.
Why do Americans not understand that sure making guns illegal wouldn’t stop criminals from getting them but would make it both super inaccessible and super expensive by default reducing the likeliness of the wrong people getting them More guns is not the answer Sincerely an Australian
I thought Bill’s proposal was the most reasonable thing I’ve ever heard from the right on the issue of gun control. Still not enough, but at least there is talk about it.
I’m not generally a fan of Bill oreilly but I think he is bringing to the table a sensible right winged approach to the issue. While I don’t like everything he said I do think it’s a well thought out appreciable suggestion. Certainly better that the black and white approach from Donald trump
”Forged the west with weapons” …Yea, how did that turned out…Oh wait, it was called WILD WEST as in any idiot with a gun tend to shoot anyone he wanted and somehow Indians were the criminals in the end… Also, the people who does the shootings doesn’t expect to survive. Once they commit the crime, it doesn’t matter if it is a federal crime or something like that. They killed their fill of people and mostly they commit suicide. That ‘mandatory’ stuff doesn’t prevent those suicidal murderers when they can get their hands on a gun…do the deed and die. What are you gonna do ? Put his corpse on prison ? Will that stop the shootings ?
Also, what about the ”solutions” your RIGHT presents and your presidential candidate, going ” Lets ban all Muslims…that will solve the problem”. It sounds like an idea that came out from a 5 year-old. Just think about that…Fix your own SHIT then TRY TO BE LOGICAL about solutions before spouting them.
NRA doesn’t care who buys the guns they sell as long as they get the money from it and none of the blame. And no , the ”good gun with a gun” theory doesn’t work since we don’t live in FUCKING ACTION MOVIES where the ‘hero’ is an expert markman and can hold his cool under fire or something like that. If anything, they would be frozen in terror or worse, while trying to shoot the gunman , they would hit innocent bystanders as well. Even soldiers suffer those conditions in BATTLE , how do you think a normal person would react in a shooting ? Why do they ignore these possibilities ? Because they grew up on Action movies and Wild Westerns where the ”good guy” always hits the mark, bad guys always miss and no consiquences happen… They should wake up from that dream and face the REALITY of the situation. And driving more hatred and giving gun-nuts more justification, doesn’t help.
Can anyone find stats to support what O’Reilly said RE: the amount of gun-related crimes in the US decreasing by 30% or whatever? Also, so proud to be an Australian right now.
Wut? Did Bill just propose indefinite martial law? Alex Jones is on to him!
declaring war on ISIS is a very slippery slope. Why O’Reilly was implying on the Factor bit was that the US should declare war on ISIS, in effect beginning a war on both in the middle east and on US soil, the latter of which hasn’t happened since the civil war 150 years ago. He then says to use the pretense of war to allow the military to detain people, including US citizens (the orlando shooter was a US citizen), without charging them of a crime. Where is due process in that?
bill really needs to leave fox news to find a better media outlet to voice his political opinions.
Omg Stephen, don’t tempt me to agree with Bill. Why blame the tool when messed up people are the problem?!
Stephen and Seth undoubtedly *need* our guns.
Looks like O’Reilly didn’t catch the John Oliver segment on mandatory minimums
While I disagree with Bill on a lot of things, he seemed very grounded and logical in this interview. It may not be exactly what I want done, but at least it’s a start. Hearing a republican say he’s okay with some sort of gun regulation and reform gives me some hope.
yup the problem can be both
“Not a tragedy” Go Fuck Yourself Bill O’Reilly.
I can’t stand his network, and he has some ABSURD ideas. But a lot of what he is saying is true, and should be discussed.
I kinda agree with him..
I applaud Stephen for being such a great host and having a decent and common sense conversation with O’Reilly on this issue, and also for telling the audience to actually listen to his opinion instead of booing him.
not being able to move on from their past and hold on to this nonsensical right to carry guns is an inside threat to the u.s.
He wants congress to declare war? Is he insane?
a literal interpretation of the Quran justifies the shooters acts, so Islamist’s are also the problem
IF YOU ARE FROM CHICAGO LIKE ME, YOU KNOW THAT THIS ARGUMENT IS REPUBLICAN BULLSHIT! They across state lines to Indiana, a short drive, where it’s easy as hell to get the guns, then come back to Chicago, in the city you can’t just get guns anywhere, it’s hard as hell, they not coming from the city itself but people always try to push this propaganda bs to make a point, fuck bill o reily
Billy boy is a fucking faggot.
the favorite weapons used by jihadists are explosives no ak because explosives are cheaper to build and buy. so islam is not the problem
less than 2% of annual firearm deaths are from rifles
0:30 “[O’Reilly team is] busy over the real news” – Colbert 2016
The problem is that small, concealable, easy-to-use killing machines is readily available, everywhere. 2nd Amendment? 18th Century, slave owning hypocrites wrote the Constitution many, many solar years ago. Time has changed, but technology grows exponentially. At some point, as Obama pointed out, we have to make a decision, as a society, what we are willing to live with. Guns are getting more effective, so is the killings. We have to draw a red line, somewhere. Where do you think it should be? Personally, as a hunter, I believe simple guns like muzzle-loaders, small caliber rifles, and some shotguns would be okay. To ask for more is totally unnecessary, dangerous(obviously), and selfish. Islam isn’t the problem, religion is. They’re all the same.
I generally dislike bill, but he making Stephen look like a fool.
Mateen frequently Pulse gay club for years, he is gay. You old fart should talk about media control and biased, its killed more human than guns
When i saw “Bill O’Riley” i knew it was gonna be stupid
Bill got lost when Stephen brought out facts towards the end
Stephen is doing a great job here, regulating his audience and showing Bill O’Reilly respect aswell as pointing out inconsistencies in his reasoning. I feel like people of this caliber are dying out… when my generation is in it’s 50ies there won’t be many with the knowledge and integrity of a Stephen Colbert and (even If I don’T agree with him) Bill O’Reilly. I think it is important that there are conversations like this on regular TV to interest younger audiences in politics…. so there may be hope that some grow up to be… you know… grown ups.
Lets the cringefest start… now!!
Neil degrasse tyson put it best. He said we’re quick to bring up our 2nd amendment but don’t question if it’s a good idea or not.
For the first time ever, I kinda agree with O’Reily, Not on mandatory minimums, but with the severity.
guns g g guns g u u u u u u g nguns n n n nu s sguns sguns s ns! (And the people behind them.)
This was the worst possible time for O’Reilly to come on. And yes, I know it was scheduled before anyone could do anything about it.
WTF He makes sense…..!!!!
One man, alone, kills and wounds 100 people using only firearms… this could only happen in a country where WAR firearms are readily available to the public. Enough of the bullshit rhetoric.
ISIS: Proudly sponsored by the NRA and gun lobbyist Republicans since… always.
2:27 While they are both the problem, it’s undeniable that radical Islam is the root of it. Like Bill said, we are at war. A war of values and conflicting cultures.
Wow, I agree with Bill over Stephen – the main problem is ideology, not weapons.
All you need to do is remove mandatory minumun for NON-VIOLENT crimes..
Really? The first line he spoke has me like what? Bringing politics in this immediately.
Bill O’Reilly is a complete moron.
bill sounds normal and levelheaded. this is really wild to watch
that audience is full of Democrats lol they are so anti gun. they haven’t hit puberty yet. hahahaha
Being in the center is weird. I agree with some of what Stephen says, but also some of what Bill says. I’m leaning more towards Bill’s side, though.
Ban Guns in America!!!
the thing i don’t get is: how are these people buying guns? maybe Omar was alot older than i saw, but still! no track history on them. no mental issues, abuse, trauma, anger issues, phobias? anything that would make them snap like Omar did? hell! there have been kids, younger than me (25) who had guns! did they have a licence? a parent who own one? stealing? i don’t mind the amendment myself, of course people need ways to defend themselves, but we don’t need fire arms at the hip ALL THE TIME! most people just want to live, have families and go on with normal life! i think the only people allowed with guns are true hunters and the US Army! and even then hunters should only be using small pistols or Sniper Rifles.
i’m sorry, it’s just annoying when guns are brought up and people point to the people or group who fired them. if we remove the guns, then we remove violence! we need better laws added, more registrations to allow people fire arms and more security to protect people from harm! i know there’s always gonna be that one crazy person who gets a gun somehow, but if we put everything on the table and try to piece it together, we can make a safe country. nah! world!
I LOVE Stephen. He was respectful, made important points when needed, etc. Simply one of the best hosts of all time.
That being said, Bill continues to disappoint. He can be intelligent, but he almost always chooses to just tow the line. Further, mandatory minimums are not the end all be all solution. Further still, it is NOT the job of the news to propose a solution to anything. It is their job to report the facts, period. And Bill O is not a news personality, but an entertainer.
Bill o’reilly is the same guy who said Birmingham in the u.k is a no go zone for non muslims. As for the gun crime going down, we still have shootings every day and loads of mass shootings every year.
Bill is a fucking homophobe. What a hypocrite.
that dude was going to attack with or without a gun. and he probably would’ve illegally got his hands on a gun sorta how he illegally slaughtered so many people
One last thing to point out… No mention of the homophobia? Just barely touched on the mental health aspect, too.
That’s kinda lax.
…. Bill, no. It’s the federal no fly list. It’s not the private airlines.
For once I agree more with Bill than with Colbert.
He’s an American citizen. Even if you declare war, he IS innocent until proven guilty of a crime. If you start rounding up American citizens, you trample on the 1st Amendment!
stop the hate. can’t we all just get along. ONE LOVE !! ✌❤?? be a shining⭐ .make happy..❤
ah american gun law discussions ?? maybe chicagos problem is that people simply drive to a place where the gunlaws are not as hard buy a gun and drive than back ?
mad props to bill for coming and talking. i dont like his show but i love debate and he was absolutely in a hostile situation.
Looking at things in a completely neutral sense I think two things need to happen.
1) We need to introduce mandatory checks for guns, if you want a gun i’m 100% fine with that but if you’re a mentally unstable person you should not be in position of easily acquiring a firearm. I believe there are some bad people out there who may want to harm you and/or your family and you have the right to be protected, but we should not just turn a blind eye to the fact that getting a gun is much easier than it should be. Owning a gun is a huge responsibility and those gun owners who are responsible should not be punished but rather we should have ways to try and determine to the best of our ability who wants to do harm with weapons and who wants to protect themselves.
2) We need to stop putting our hands in the sand, this was an Islamic Terrorist who inspired through readings in the Qaran (their holy book) committed disgusting and atrocious acts. I am not saying that every Islamic person is a terrorist which I know some of you might be thinking but what I am saying is we need to take a critical view of the religion which seems to be a common factor among these terror attacks. Obviously there is a problem that needs to be looked at closer with that religion, all religions should be critiqued and closely looked at but right now this is the religion that needs the most critique and analyse to figure out and stop those who are becoming inspired by it to commit terrible crimes.
Of course no solution is perfect but burring your heads in the sand and sprouting hateful speech towards gun owners or Islamic people is not the way forward. We need to accept there is a problem with guns being so accessible and we need to accept there are those who take the Qaran literally and wish death upon gay people.
There are good gun owners out there just like there are good Muslims out there, you can’t accept one and not the other, you are not a hipster liberal if you want tighter gun controls the same as you are not a racist because you critique Islam.
I don’t like Bill o Reilly but he actually makes sense. wow. I’m very surprised
This wasn’t a tragedy …. nope fuck off Bill.
This is how you save your show, Colbert.
That nut should have been barred from buying ANY weapon!
Opens with Australian gun control. Forgets how effective it’s been at minimizing mass shootings by the end. Bill is a cherry picker extraordinaire.
This cunts a clown
Declaring war and abandoning state rights? No thanks. Bill O’Reilly is a statist and a nationalist, not healthy.
“my job is to find solutions” …how about just report the news/facts?
This Second Amendment argument is not watertight. “A well-regulated militia” – what is well-regulated or militia-like about the current arrangement of gun laws? It’s clearly not well-regulated enough to save lives when required, and it’s certainly not a militia if there is no designated body of citizens who can access heavy weaponry. The Second Amendment and public safety need not be mutually exclusive.
Bill is a deplorable snake
Locking up gun criminals for longer time is a reactionary measure. Banning assault rifles and making it harder to get a gun is a proactive measure.
Colbert here argues for Constitutional rights to become privileges subject to the whims of the government, with no criminal evidence needed to deny a citizen their rights. Tyrant! Take my liberty from my cold dead hands, you freedom haters! I will never be your slave!
Criminalizing people who own guns is a big problem with all these people who are trying to push stricter gun laws. People are not just going to give up their guns. That means you have potentially hundreds of thousands of people who are going to be criminalized and possibly imprisoned, or simply gunned down in their own homes for “resisting”
If Stephen or pretty much anybody else wasn’t there, O’reilly would still be blaming it on Jihadists. Its pretty much anyone with a gun can kill another person at any time. I’m glad Stephen corrected him.
4:51 Did people really just clap over getting jail time for concealed carrying? I get that it’s a outlawed in Australia but geez, the anti-gun culture here in the US is getting ridiculous.
Sure, because domestic abusers and violent radicals deserve to be able to buy semiautomatic rifles. That just makes all the sense.
