'Do You Blame Knives' For Stabbings?: Watters Rips NYT Columnist's Call for 2nd Amendment Repeal
The Five discussed a new column by conservative New York Times writer Bret Stephens in which he calls for the repeal of the Second Amendment.
"I have never understood the conservative fetish for the Second Amendment," Stephens wrote. "From a law-and-order standpoint, more guns means more murder."
He wrote that the text of the amendment is "quaint," in that the "well-regulated militias" meant to secure the nation are no longer in New England farmhouses, but in silos in North Dakota.
Jesse Watters asked whether Stephens would be interested in banning fast food to prevent heart disease, in the same manner.
"When someone gets stabbed do you blame the knife?" Watters asked. "Then, why when [someone is shot], you blame the gun?"
Dana Perino said Stephens was possibly "setting a trap for the Democrats" in order to goad them into calling for further gun control.
