James Woods shreds Geraldo Rivera for attacking Second Amendment on Twitter
On Tuesday, Geraldo Rivera took a swipe at the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms with a generally fact-free tweet attacking what many see as the most important right enshrined in the Constitution. That tweet was overshadowed by a response from actor James Woods, who encouraged Rivera to engage in research before sounding off on issues.
“Sorry mates I love guns but If the 2d Amendment really allows psychos to buy machine guns with silencers then the 2d Amendment sucks,” Rivera tweeted.

That prompted Woods to respond: “As a purported journalist, could you not simply do research on the facts to prevent embarrassing yourself like this? It’s not difficult.”

For starters, it’s now being reported that 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, the gunman responsible for the tragic Las Vegas shooting in which over 50 people were killed and more than 500 others wounded, used a semi-automatic weapon outfitted with something called a “bump stock,” which allows the weapon to mimic a fully automatic rifle.
Moreover, there were no “silencers” attached to the weapon or weapons he reportedly used. For starters, “silencers,” or suppressors, as they are actually called, do not “silence” a weapon the way Hollywood depicts.
And it’s important to note that fully automatic weapons simply cannot be purchased the way a semi-automatic AR-15 can.
If Rivera had spent, say, five minutes on Google, he might have realized that. But “if,” as my grandfather used to say, can be a mighty big word.
Many sided with Woods:
He has his marching orders like the rest of em….

One person told Rivera:
That’s actually an excellent point.
Since the tragic Las Vegas shooting, anti-gun liberals have used whatever means available, including social media, to spread anti-Second Amendment propaganda and distortions, no doubt hoping to see the amendment repealed.
As one can imagine, these attempts have only revealed the ignorance of the anti-gun left. Unfortunately, instead of educating themselves on the issue, liberals have simply doubled down on the “stupid,” showing their true colors.
A post at the Gateway Pundit correctly observes that “‘psychos’ and terrorists can easily purchase or rent a vehicle and plow over people as we have seen numerous times…”
So we have to ask: Why aren’t these same liberals demanding vehicle control? What about background checks for those who wish to rent a van or a truck?
Geraldo Rivera is turning into a regular Juan Williams. Too many fools saying too many foolish things, getting paid too much to say them!

There are, indeed, far too many ignorant fools speaking out on things they know nothing about.
Sadly, a lot of them are in positions of power…
- Retired Marine captain asks Pelosi question on gun control; Her answer says it all — Video
- You’ll Never Guess Whose Administration Authorized ‘Bump Stocks’
- More questions raised as Clark County sheriff says Las Vegas shooter ‘had to have some help here’
- Nancy Sinatra calls for execution of ‘murderous’ NRA members by firing squad
- Unhinged liberal hatemonger cheers Las Vegas massacre: ‘I honestly want every single Trump supporter dead’
