Hannity Pleads With Anti-Lockdown Protesters to Keep Guns at Home: ‘Puts the Police at Risk’
In back-to-back segments on Monday night, Fox News star Sean Hannity—who has repeatedly cheered on anti-shutdown protests against coronavirus stay-at-home orders—pleaded with demonstrators to keep their rifles and tactical gear at home.
Speaking to frequent guest Dan Bongino on Monday evening, Hannity—who has recently gushed over the protests—groused that the sight of demonstrators packing rifles and dressed in military gear is a “distraction” to the real message of reopening the economy.
Claiming no one is a “bigger defender” of the Second Amendment than him, Hannity blasted the demonstrators for adopting a “militia look,” claiming that it is “dangerous” and “puts the police at risk.”
“No one should be attempting to intimidate officials,” Hannity added. “God forbid something happens—they are going to go after all of us law-abiding Second Amendment people.”
