Fox News anchor Geraldo Rivera is speaking out about the mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., and his commentary is not what you’d expect from a conservative host.

The half-Puerto Rican TV and radio presenter took to Twitter on Wednesday to share his not-so-popular thoughts on the Second Amendment, which protects the right of Americans to keep and bear arms, and the National Rifle Association (NRA).

"The 2d Amendment is Stupid," Rivera tweeted, immediately receiving criticism from his right-leaning followers. But this isn’t the first time the anchor has spoken out against the amendment. Last year, Rivera said it was “blind and stupid.”

 

 

Rivera also went after one of the Second Amendment’s biggest proponents: the NRA.

"The NRA is full of shit," he tweeted.

 

 

"In its relentless pimping for the gun industry, the NRA has unleashed an avalanche of deadly weapons on this gun-crazy country," he said of the group, a nonprofit organization that advocates for gun rights, last year.
