Keith Olbermann explained in a tweet on Wednesday that “to keep the Conservatives out of the business of killing schoolchildren” the US must confiscate its long guns.
Olbermann made the comment after a fatal shooting that took place Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas — he posted the tweet in response to a post by conservative radio host and Second Amendment proponent Dana Loesch, who had done so tweeted“The killer reportedly bought two rifles and passed a background check. Universal background checks would not have prevented this. It’s not a new system, it’s just an extension of the existing problematic system.”
Olbermann replied: “You are right, Loesch. The rules ARE insufficient[***]with long guns.”
erase answered“Keith, if you think I’m in the Planned Parenthood business and I’m killing children, I now dare call the authorities and have me arrested – otherwise you’re at fault. I’m in Dallas. Do it now. Please record the call and post it for further attention to yourself.”
In a Tuesday post, Olbermann claimed that Americans have no constitutional right to own firearms.
“The word OWN is not in the 2nd Amendment. Nor is there a word synonymous with ‘own’, although the Constitution and Bill of Rights largely form an ownership treaty. There is no constitutional right to own guns,” he said tweeted.
The text of the Second Amendment states: “A well-regulated militia, necessary to the security of a free state, must not violate the right of the people to possess and bear arms.”
“Gun violence in America is the work of the Republicans. MAKE IT OWN IT,” Olbermann declared in one tweet On Wednesday.
Earlier this month, on Mother’s Day, Olbermann attacked a homeschooling mother. “Imagine writing ‘Homeschool Mom’ in your bio and not understanding you just ruined the lives of five innocent children,” he tweeted, referring to Bethany Mandel.
Last year, Olbermann commented on a photo of Sen. Mitt Romney’s family by saying, “Someone is giving these people vasectomies as gifts.”
