O'Reilly: U.S. Gun Deaths Linked to Rise in Nihilism, Decline in Spiritual Belief
Bill O'Reilly said in his Talking Points Memo tonight that the liberal media's reaction to an attack on a live news broadcast in Virginia was predictable: Calls for stricter gun laws and more mental health monitoring.
"Sadly, there is no way any country can stop disturbed individuals from killing people," O'Reilly stated. "And because of America's history, there is no way total control of firearms will ever happen here."
O'Reilly noted that Chicago has ultra-strict gun laws, but cannot stop the terrible gang-related violence in the city.
"But there is something else going on," O'Reilly asserted, pointing to a rise in nihilism and a decline in spiritual belief.
"The killers in Colorado, Charleston, Connecticut and now Virginia, all young men who had few restraints in their lives," O'Reilly said. "If you do not believe in anything, anything goes."
He explained that it's not gun control or stricter mental health monitoring that will stop the senseless murder of human beings.
"Only a society that insists all human life is valuable and a mass media that promotes the message of that will begin to see a turn away from violence," O'Reilly said. "It's all about the philosophy of loving your neighbor, not the myth that centralized government can prevent barbaric behavior. It cannot."
