Keith Olbermann declared in a tweet on Wednesday that in order to get “Conservatives out of the School Children Killing business,” the U.S. should confiscate their long guns.

Olbermann made the comment in the wake of a deadly school shooting on Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas — he issued the tweet in response to a post from conservative radio host and Second Amendment advocate Dana Loesch, who had tweeted, “The murderer reportedly purchased two rifles and passed a background check. Universal Background Checks would not have stopped this. It’s not a new system, it’s just an expansion of the existing troubled system.”

Olbermann fired back, “You’re right Loesch. The rules ARE inadequate. To put you Conservatives out of the School Children Killing business, America is going to have to take all your fucking long guns.”

Loesch responded, “Keith, if you think I’m in the Planned Parenthood business of killing children I dare your right now to call the authorities and have me arrested — otherwise you’re culpable. I’m in Dallas. Do it now. Please record the call and post it for further attention for yourself.”

In a tweet on Tuesday Olbermann claimed that Americans do not have a Constitutional right to firearm ownership.

“The word OWN is not included in the 2nd Amendment. Nor is there any word included that is a synonym for “own,” even though the Constitution and the Bill of Rights form, in large part, a property contract. There is no Constitutional right to own guns,” he tweeted.

The text of the Second Amendment reads, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Earlier this month Olbermann took a dig at a homeschooling mom on Mother’s Day. “Imagine putting “homeschool mom” in your bio and not understanding you’ve just ruined the lives of five innocent children,” he tweeted in response to a post from Bethany Mandel.

Last year Olbermann commented on a photo of Sen. Mitt Romney’s family by writing, “Somebody gift these people some vasectomies.”
