Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera went on a rant calling for more gun control following the San Bernardino shooting rampage Wednesday that left 14 people dead, labeling the Second Amendment “stupid” and the National Rifle Association as “full of s–.”

“Mass shooting in San Bernadino (sic) California at a Center for the Developmentally Disabled WTF! The 2d Amendment is Stupid!!! Don’t rationalize,” Mr. Rivera tweeted to his 75,400 followers, just hours after Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, allegedly gunned down 14 people and wounded more than a dozen others at a social services center for the disabled.

In the wake of the attack, President Obama called for more gun control reforms to make mass shootings in the U.S. “rare as opposed to normal” — a notion Mr. Rivera praised.

“14 Dead!! Terror in America. This is our future if we don’t act,” Mr. Rivera wrote. “Determine motive. Why attack innocents? Who are the perps?”

“The NRA is full of s–,” he added. “[F]ind locate and apprehend the suspects then tear out their eyeballs and take their long guns and shove them up their a–-.

“This is terrorism. Make no mistake regardless of the identity or race or the ethnicity of the killer(s) this is Terrorism. This is our future,” he continued. “The key now is for us to be as outraged by San Bernadino (sic) massacre as we would be if Muslim extremists were doing the killing. This is terror.”

Farook and Malik, who were both killed in a shootout with police after fleeing the massacre, were reportedly both Muslims. Authorities have not ruled out terrorism as a motive in the attack.

This is not the first time Mr. Rivera has expressed anti-gun sentiment, Mediaite notes.

“Like I always say, the 2nd Amendment, the provision that gives every American the right to keep and bear arms, is blind and stupid,” he wrote last year. “In its relentless pimping for the gun industry, the NRA has unleashed an avalanche of deadly weapons on this gun-crazy country.”
