Geraldo is clueless. Does anyone still take him seriously?
During the Tuesday airing of Fox News’ The Five, Geraldo Rivera said Vince Vaughn’s pro-gun statements reminded him “of Timothy McVeigh and the militias.”
When Geraldo heard these things, he heard Timothy McVeigh — the man who bombed the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, thereby killing 168 people.
Geraldo mocked Vaughn’s contention that the Founding Fathers hedged in the right to bear arms so we could resist tyranny not only outside our borders, but also within. He facetiously said, “Anyone who thinks they need guns, there is a gun for every man, woman, and child in the country, to protect against the corrupt, and arrogant, and pervasive government” of which Vaughn spoke.
Geraldo later denied that guns are used by law-abiding citizens to stop crimes. He asked fellow host Eric Bolling, “When was the last time you heard of a civilian stopping a crime with a gun?” And when Bolling said, “It happens thousands of times per day,” Geraldo responded by saying, “That’s a legend. You’re watching too much True Detective.”
