Sean Hannity Pulls Gun On Juan Williams, Gets Free Pass, And That’s Wrong [VIDEO]

Are You Kidding Me?? That was my first thought upon seeing this headline.

Sources: Sean Hannity once pulled a gun on Juan Williams

Wait what? Ok, so we all know by now that Sean Hannity has jumped the shark in a variety of ways. Seriously he has. Don’t even try to excuse his last four years of behavior.

His work with the late Alan Colmes notwithstanding… Hannity has basically dived into some sort of ditch I never want to visit.

The latest example is this:

Last year, after ending one of his many spirited on-air arguments with liberal contributor Juan Williams, Hannity pulled out a gun and pointed it directly at Williams, according to three sources with knowledge of the incident. He even turned on the laser sight, causing a red dot to bob around on Williams’ body. (Hannity was just showing off, the sources said, but the unforeseen off-camera antic clearly disturbed Williams and others on set.)

Let’s stop right there folks and think about this.

A. ALL responsible gun owners are trained and taught that, under NO circumstances EVER do you point a gun at someone unless you mean to defend yourself!

B. Hannity went as far as to turn on the laser sight and point it at Williams. Therefore Hannity BECAME the threat.

C. What Hannity did gives fuel and fodder to all the anti-gun groups out there because… He’s a Jackass BIGLY.

Here are both Fox News and Hannity’s statements:

“Sean Hannity has been trained in firearm safety since he was 11 years old and has a license to carry a gun in five states, including New York,” Fox News said in a statement to CNNMoney. “The situation was thoroughly investigated and it was found that no one was put in any danger.” (The spokesperson said the incident took place in October 2016.)

– – – – –

“While discussing the issue of firearms, I showed my good friend Juan Williams my unloaded firearm in a professional and safe manner for educational purposes only,” Hannity’s statement read. “Every precautionary procedure that I have been trained in since the age of 11 was followed. I’ve had a conceal carry permit in five states for all of my adult life. Any other interpretation of this is outright false reporting.”

‘professional and safe manner.’ Are. You. Kidding. Me??!! I was taught from an early age that you NEVER EVER point a gun at someone unless you are intent on doing them harm. In fact, you never EVER point a gun (loaded or unloaded) at someone period unless you have to defend yourself. Hannity threw that MAJOR tenant of gun safety out the window.

Uh huh… “Fun” is what I’d call it. NOT. Let’s put it this way. If I was working in same office as Sean Hannity, I’d either push for his dismissal or I’d leave. Someone who’s willing to arbitrarily wave a gun to make a point is someone I don’t want around me. He’s someone I don’t want backing me up if a situation goes bad. In fact, I wouldn’t even want to be at the same range as he is should he deign to show up and attempt to figure out how to actually use his weapon.

Really? Juan Williams basically admits that you did. And guess what Buster?? That right there flies directly in the face of everything that is gun safety.  So don’t you tell me that you could “safely” wave a gun around in some one’s face and everything will be A-OK. It’s not and we have too many stories that tell us otherwise. Oh and Sean? You should’ve paid attention in those gun safety classes.

More importantly, I. Don’t. Care. if the gun was unloaded. First rule of weapon and gun safety is that you NEVER EVER point a loaded or unloaded gun at someone unless you mean business. Any and all RESPONSIBLE 2A gun owners know that. Sean Hannity, you should’ve known that as well. You make a Big Mistake. YUUUGE.

      Agreed. I know I repeated myself several times in the post…but seriously…you NEVER ever point a gun at anyone unless you mean to do something! Professional and safe manner my a**

      • Has it been confirmed by Williams he pointed the gun at him? And if he did, it would definitely be unsafe and something worth criticism, but I see people make mistakes like that at gun ranges a lot (and they get criticized immediately for it by other people there and the range master). But fired from Fox News over it? Not remotely in this context (as given by Williams himself).

        • Nina says:

          Hi! Williams tweets indicate that the situation did in fact happen.

          My point is that anyone who practices gun safety never chooses to ‘show’ off a gun in a place such as a work environment. There are too many variables and something can go wrong. Another of Hannity’s tweets said that we shouldn’t have a problem because the gun was unloaded. Again, another tenet of gun safety is to always assume a weapon is loaded so therefore don’t have it out unless you fully intend to use it.

          Thanks! 😉

          • If Juan Williams did not have a problem with it, I am hardly going to freak about an event I did not see. Neither should you. Yes, on all you points for gun safety (ones I follow myself–although the work one depends on context), but it does not sound from Williams reaction Hannity did what is being claimed (other than take out a gun at work to show him).

  • Steve says:

    So you base an entire article on a CNN story and you failed to mention that Juan Williams said that the gun was NEVER pointed at him. I, like many gun owners am happy to show my weapons to people and do so the safe way, unloaded, action open, and made safe. You however, read a CNN headline and don’t bother to research just go off on a tantrum. How lazy and disingenuous of you.

    • Mark says:

      @Steve, Nowhere did Juan state the gun was never pointed at him. Unless you have new evidence to that effect, which you did not provide. Why carry water for Sean? Let him man up to his mistakes.

      • Steve says:

        “While discussing the issue of firearms, I showed my good friend Juan Williams my unloaded firearm in a professional and safe manner for educational purposes only,” Hannity said. “Every precautionary procedure that I have been trained in since the age of 11 was followed. I’ve had a conceal carry permit in five states for all of my adult life. Any other interpretation of this is outright false reporting.”

        The kicker is Williams himself says the whole thing is being blown way out of proportion.

        “This incident is being sensationalized — everything was under total control throughout and I never felt like I was put in harm’s way,” Williams said, according to the CNN report. “It was clear that Sean put my safety and security above all else and we continue to be great friends.”

    Fake, Phoney, Fake. Very Fake

  • Grasshopper says:

    4 rules of gun handling. They are well known. One of the best ones is NEVER point a gun at something you are not willing to destroy. Unloaded, loaded, Condition X….. doesn’t matter. You don’t do it. Ever. Fire him.

  • You perhaps should check out how Juan Williams responded to these allegations before assuming the allegations are true.

    I was not there (so I have not idea what really happened) but I am some what skeptical about the reports from the beginning (and that was before Juan Williams responded). Come on guys, fact check before responding to MSM accusations (especially when directed against people they hate).

    Or as Juan Williams put it himself:
    “This incident is being sensationalized — everything was under total control throughout and I never felt like I was put in harm’s way,” Williams said, according to the CNN report. “It was clear that Sean put my safety and security above all else and we continue to be great friends.”

    The Irish have a word for accusations like this…Malarkey.
    I have a word for it too, and the cow pasture is full of it… Try not to get sucked in by CNN.

    • Mark says:

      It may be true that the report was sensationalized. You would need to hear directly from the 3 witnesses to judge whether Sean was pointing the gun at Juan (however “safely”) in a state of frustration or truly joking around. And even so, the only time to point a gun (verified by both parties to be unloaded) at another person is for self-defense training, or filming a movie. To do otherwise is very bad form, and worse form in a professional environment.

      • Mark, I am not going to get the vapors when Juan Williams (the supposed target) does not seem upset and I am not even sure what happened (because I was not there). And “unnamed sources” don’t cut it, especially with CNN.

  • steve says:

    I’m not sure if your article is accurate. You might want to lighten up just a bit.
    I like your “Americans will always fight for liberty” pic. I have an original WWII poster of it in my living room.

  • Kim Quade says:

    Frankly, I’d like to see Sean Hannity shown the door because he’s not very bright, and he’s become as annoying as Geraldo Rivera.
    Hey, Fox should sack both of them! What an idea!
    But that’s just me.

  • Johnny says:

    Sorry, if Juan Williams himself debunked it, that should be it.

    The MSM is perfectly capable of taking pot-shots at anyone they feel threatened by. They don’t need any aid and comfort from us.

    Whatever issues one may have with Hannity, this is not the hill to die on for them.

  • Kit Zander says:

    Either provide these “unnamed sources” or a video or it didn’t happen, even if you desperately want it to. So, STFU.

  • Tony says:

    Deep State is getting desperate. They try to take out Roger Stone and failed. They tried to beat up Michael Savage and only made him louder. Now they put out a hit piece on Sean Hannity about something that happened back in October. Juan Williams debunked this but even if it happened why wait till now?
    Answer: because the Deep State is going after Trump’s core support. Shut them down and they think they can shut Trump down. This is character assassination plain and simple Communism 101.
