I’ll just come out and say it – I’m a huge fan of the Fox News show The Five. It’s a show that pokes fun of humor-worthy political candidates and parts of society. But it can be a show that shows a particularly ugly side when wounds are fresh and it’s a boiling hot topic like gun control. In this episode, the topic was the horrendous shooting of the two journalists shot live on air by the despicable murderer Vester Lee Flanagan.
The episode starts off with a clip of the husband of the victim that survived – the person the now-deceased reporters were interviewing – who managed to survive with some well-timed surgeries after sustaining a gunshot to the back. Not only is the husband understanding enough that he doesn’t blame the gun, but he’s smart enough to realize that his wife could’ve been attacked with any other weapon and experienced the same, if not a worse outcome.
Geraldo Rivera, a die-hard liberal, chimed in and managed to insult gun owners everywhere by proposing to repeal the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution, calling it “dumb”, citing statistics that are either overblown or don’t take into account the times that crimes were thwarted by the use of a gun.
In good form, Greg Gutfeld immediately pounces on Rivera and cites the statistics that no liberal wants to hear – most gun crime is due to gang violence, namely Black and Hispanic gangs that commit a disproportionate and alarming rate of gun crime. When that’s taken into account, Rivera’s point falls flatter than a pancake.
