Rupert Murdoch Indicates Gun Control Support In A Tweet

Posted Jul 23, 2012

Rupert Murdoch, the owner of News Corporation, has tweeted about the need for the country to tighten restrictions on guns.  This is unexpected because News Corp. is the owner of Fox News, a news agency that tends to be pro-2nd Amendment.  Murdoch wrote the tweet shortly after the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shootings where 12 people were killed and over 50 people were injured.  ?We have to do something about gun controls. Police license okay for hunting rifle or pistol for anyone without crim or pscho record. No more,? wrote Murdoch on his Twitter account.
