Following the Vegas mass shooting, Bill O'Reilly claimed that the shooting's nearly six hundred casualties caused were 'the price of freedom' according to the Daily Beast.
“Once again, the big downside of American freedom is on gruesome display.” He went on to declare that “government restrictions will not stop psychopaths from harming people,” adding: “The NRA and its supporters want easy access to weapons, while the left wants them banned. This is the price of freedom. Violent nuts are allowed to roam free until they do damage, no matter how threatening they are. The Second Amendment is clear that Americans have a right to arm themselves for protection. Even the loons.”
This is the right-wing view on gun rights in the U.S.
