• With: Bob Costas

    (CROSSTALK)

    O'REILLY: Of course not --

    COSTAS: In most cases --

    (CROSSTALK)

    O'REILLY: -- but the --

    COSTAS: -- you're going to have many --

    O'REILLY: -- but in -- in Texas and other states --

    COSTAS: -- you're going to have many armed people, all right. And Colorado happens to be a right to carry state.

    O'REILLY: Right.

    COSTAS: But you're going to have many armed people who would just be sitting there watching the movie. I would tell -- I would suggest that if that were the case --

    O'REILLY: Yes.

    COSTAS: -- it's far more likely than somebody playing Dirty Harry and taking this guy down that, over the course of time, there would be a dispute about somebody stepping on someone's foot on the line --

    (CROSSTALK)

    O'REILLY: But you're evading --

    COSTAS: -- for popcorn --

    (CROSSTALK)

    O'REILLY: -- you're evading my question and going --

    COSTAS: -- and -- and that dispute would escalate because somebody has a gun.

    O'REILLY: You're evading my question. Bob Costas and O'Reilly are in the theater.

    COSTAS: Yes.

    O'REILLY: Do you want to hit the floor and hope you don't get shot or do you want to have a gun on that you could protect yourself with?

    COSTAS: I don't want -- I don't want to have a gun on me, no. And in that --

    O'REILLY: Ok.

    COSTAS: -- in that situation --

    (CROSSTALK)

    COSTAS: -- in that situation, in the dark, in the confusion --

    O'REILLY: I respect that.

    COSTAS: -- I think it was -- it's highly more likely that there would be additional carnage. Bullets would be flying wildly all over the place.

    O'REILLY: But, again, you're into the theoretical now. You don't --

    (CROSSTALK)

    COSTAS: As are you.

    O'REILLY: No, I'm not. You don't want a gun, I want one.

    COSTAS: All right, fine.

    O'REILLY: Ok. I want to be able to protect myself against that loon with a gun --

    (CROSSTALK)

    COSTAS: And --

    O'REILLY: -- rather than being on the floor.

    COSTAS: Now --

    (CROSSTALK)

    O'REILLY: No, wait -- stop, stop --
