If there was ever any doubt, it could now be declared official… Geraldo Rivera has lost his mind.
Some had hopes for Rivera when he professed that America should start getting tough in the fight against the Islamic State and terrorism. His short-lived rationale came after his daughter was caught in the Paris attacks in November. Thankfully, she was OK, but her father? That’s debatable.
When terror hit a San Bernardino workplace Wednesday, Rivera took to social media to declare the U.S. Second Amendment, stupid.
Mass shooting in San Bernadino California at a Center for the Developmentally Disabled WTF! The 2d Amendment is Stupid!!! Don’t rationalize.

Who’s the one not being rational? It’s a scary concept when people automatically jump to the “conclusion” that the Second Amendment is the problem.
Americans have lived freely, and mostly peacefully, since the birth of the nation with the right to bear arms.
Utilizing the Second Amendment hasn’t changed, so what has?
Rather than tackle regressive policies that are changing society for the worse – porous borders, growing entitlements, burdensome taxes and regulations that stifle jobs and innovation – folks like Rivera would rather strip law abiding citizenry of their American rights.
That didn’t sit well with a lot of folks (Warning for language):
@KrisWilliams @GeraldoRivera seems it was just weeks since his tears flowed for his daughter who was in Paris w/ strict gun laws. — Diane Khalar (@DKhasMK) December 3, 2015
@BrettAdams12 @mesiaindo @GeraldoRivera Hello??? Your daughter was a sitting duck in Paris!

@GeraldoRivera Just. Fucking. Leave. Terrible people doing terrible things do not dictate how I defend my own life and my family. — AtlasDidntReallyCare (@DaveMBP) December 2, 2015
@GeraldoRivera You are a failed American. Feel free to leave this nation at any time.

@GeraldoRivera, calm down. Whatever happened, it has nothing to do with the 2nd Amendment. It is terrorism, domestic or foreign. — N.V. Mara Czarnecki (@Nickidewbear) December 2, 2015

@GeraldoRivera criminals will ALWAYS get guns. Americans have the right to defend themselves. France didn’t teach you that? Shame. — Sandi (@Longtails53) December 3, 2015
Rivera and his ilk could use a lesson from Detroit Police Chief James Craig who recently explained the obvious… an unarmed citizenry is EXACTLY what terrorists and criminals want.
