Gun rights activists have noted that for the past three nights in a row Fox News' Bill O'Reilly has advocated gun control, calling for a national database of gun owners who buy what he calls "heavy weapons," including the registration of ammunition sales. Such a database is specifically prohibited by law.
The three night assault on the Second Amendment rights of citizens led one activist to refer to O'Reilly as a "faux conservative" and another to call for a boycott of The O'Reilly Factor and a coordinated effort to contact the sponsors of the show expressing their deep discontent.
With O'Reilly's new anti-gun initiative he joins the ranks of other well known gun control activists such as New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, CNN's Piers Morgan, U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y., all of whom are considered extremists by those who are involved in the movement to protect the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
