Geraldo Sounds Like Shannon Watts

posted on June 4, 2015

On Fox News’ The Five, Geraldo Rivera said actor Vince Vaughn, in voicing his support for the Second Amendment, sounded like the worst homegrown mass murderer in American history: “Doesn’t that remind you of Timothy McVeigh …?”

When The Five’s panel deftly backed Vaughn with facts and statistics, Geraldo remarked flippantly, “When was the last time you heard of a civilian stopping a crime with a gun?” He dismissed accounts of defensive gun use as “a legend,” adding, “You’re watching too much ‘True Detective.’”

It is more accurate to say that Geraldo sounds like Shannon Watts of Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action, who lied about defensive gun use to CNN: “This has never happened. Data shows it doesn’t happen.”
