So-called Conservative Supports Gun Confiscation

David Codrea discusses an assertion Bill O'Reilly made during his interview of Stewart Rhodes of Oath Keepers. O'Reilly apparently claimed the Constitution is no impediment to disarming peaceable citizens during "emergencies".
Asking Rhodes why it is legitimate for Oath Keepers to even discuss government disarming Americans, Rhodes properly cited exactly that happening in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. When O'Reilly brought up a state of emergency, Rhodes shot back by challenging him to show "where...it say[s] in the Constitution that bad weather suspends the Constitution."

"It's not a matter of bad weather," O'Reilly replied. "It's a matter of can't control the city.
Read the whole thing. O'Reilly just plain doesn't get it.
