Fox News' O'Reilly Calls for All Gun Crimes to Be Federal Offenses

Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor"

By    |   Wednesday, 02 November 2016 09:41 PM

Fox News' Bill O'Reilly called Wednesday for making all gun crimes a federal violation – calling it a "solution" that will take guns off the streets along with the criminals who carry them.

"The O'Reilly Factor" host complained both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton "know what the problems are, but have mostly put forth general solutions," blasting the Democratic presidential nominee in particular for her gun-control strategy.

"[T]he problem is not gun control," O'Reilly said. "Chicago and the state of Illinois have strict gun possession measures, but obviously the thugs who are shooting people don't really care about those measures, do they?"

O'Reilly declared: "There is a solution, but neither Clinton or Tump have mentioned it."

"Anyone committing any crime, any crime with a gun, even simple illegal possession, should be subject to federal mandatory prison sentences," he said. "All gun crimes should become federal crimes."

"That way American law enforcement everywhere cannot only take guns off the streets but people who illegally carry them and/or use them to commit crimes . . . And the upshot, pardon the pun, is that legal gun owners would be left alone."

O'Reilly decried Clinton would never support the plan "because she and many other liberals believe there are too many Americans in prison. And we should be more understanding of criminal behavior."

"Don't know whether Donald Trump would support federalizing federal gun crimes, but he should."
