On his radio show today, Hannity said he supports background checks at gunshows - which I interpret to be support for UBC. Here's what I sent him on his website tonight:
I heard Sean on the radio today give his support for universal background checks. I guess Sean forgets all of the following:1. Background checks would not and have not have stopped a single mass shooting in the US.
2. Background checks require gun registration to be effective or there's no way to ensure compliance
3. Gun registration always results in gun confiscation
I've been a Hannity fan for as long as he's been on Fox News Channel and on Patriot Channel. I'm very disappointed that Sean is selling out his core audience. I don't get to listen on the radio often but I watch almost every night on Fox. I hope Sean gets enough negative feedback for his remarks that he rethinks what he said. If I don't see a retraction on Fox TV by the end of the week I will assume Sean has switched sides or been replaced with a pod-person. In either case, unless there's a public retraction, Friday will be my last time to watch Hannity on any platform.
