On the at-large ex-LAPD cop accused of killing three people in California…

I must warn those of you in Big Bear Lake, California, there's a nut on the loose. He's on the prowl. He's shooting people. This former cop, this Dorner guy, he's running around, and he loves left-wingers and so forth. I think the safest thing for those of you to do in the area where he is thought to be is turn in your guns now. They tell us that will stop him. That's right – because nothing strikes fear into killers like people that don't have any guns. That's what Obama tells us, and that's what the experts who are trying to make us all safer say. So you got a madman on the loose. He happens to love left-wingers. That, by the way, is being ignored.

On the everyday gun violence in Chicago…

Over 550 gun deaths in Chicago, a town run by Democrats for decades. It's currently run by Rahm Emanuel. What did Rahm Emanuel do in regard to the gun violence in Chicago? He held a press conference and he told the gang-bangers to keep killing people in the neighborhood, but to keep it away from schools and stop going out and targeting their kids. The mayor of Chicago said, "We're gonna be watching you. Leave our kids alone," meaning go kill your kids or go kill somebody else's kids, but leave ours alone! You keep it in your neighborhood. I reported this, and I'm literally dumbfounded. But nobody, the last I looked, was making a big push to get rid of handguns in Chicago. No, it's just automatic weapons now, because of what happened in Newtown, Connecticut. And the reason was Newtown was a big story, plenty of pictures, plenty of emotion, and a massive number of deaths on one day. In Chicago, it's two deaths one day, eight deaths the next. It barely gets reported. Therefore, it's not a media story. But it is. Over 500 people, largely children, are killed with handguns in Chicago, not Illinois, in Chicago every year. And you can't get the media interested in it because it will not advance the cause.

Mark Steyn is guest-hosting for Rush today… On liberal denunciations of semi-automatic weapons…

The idea that somehow guys who decide to turn themselves into one-man RoboCops and that semi-automatic weapons are state-of-the-art technology that the Founding Fathers would not have approved of? Both the semi-automatic and automatic weapon are 19th Century technology. The sensibility in which people go now and shoot up schoolhouses is the 21st Century contribution.

On the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting, and coming liberal efforts to politically exploit it…

A terrible and awful thing has happened in Connecticut at a school in Newtown, Connecticut, I'm told. A shooting at a school, 26 people dead, including 18 children. It's just awful. It is terrible, incomprehensible. But I'm gonna tell you something. As we sit here at this very moment, you know it and I know it, there are liberals trying to find a way to blame this on conservatives and Republicans. It may sound a little hard-edged to say that, but I've lived through these things for 25-plus years.

On the spreading scandal of Operation Fast and Furious…

What was Fast and Furious? As simply put as I can make it: Fast and Furious was an American government program authored by the Obama Administration to arm violent drug gangs in Mexico with American weapons from Arizona, primarily. Assault rifles and deadly weapons were purchased from gun stores in Arizona and walked across the border to Mexico on purpose. This resulted in the death of scores of people, including a man named Brian Terry, a border agent for … our government. Now we all know what the purpose of this was. The purpose of this was to gin up anti-Amendment 2 sentiment among the people in this country. The objective was – and this is where the irony steps in – the objective was to have news stories where everybody was shocked and stunned and saddened – “Guns! Purchased! By drug cartel members in America! Look how easy it was! End up in Mexico? Owned by violent drug gangs and used in the commission of heinous crimes! Why, our gun laws are too lax!” The sentiment among people in this country is to maintain the Second Amendment. The American people don’t want, by a vast majority, ANY gun control legislation. But that doesn’t matter to people like President Kardashian, or Eric Holder, or any of the Democrat party on the left. They don’t want you to have guns, and so it doesn’t matter about the constitution, and it doesn’t matter about the will of the American people. They don’t want you to have guns, and they’re going to find a way to make sure that you don’t. And that’s what Fast and Furious was, as simply put as I can make it.
