Former ESPN commentator Keith Olbermann reacted to the June 1 Tulsa shooting by sharing his opinion that the Second Amendment does not protect a right to “own” guns.

Breitbart News reported that a suspect opened fire on Tulsa’s St. Francis Hospital campus late Wednesday afternoon because he was frustrated with back pain.

The suspect acquired his guns legally, one from a retail store and one from a pawn shop.

Olbermann tweeted his response to the shooting:

The text of the Second Amendment says, “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.”
