Pistol Packin' Peckerwood

by Pa Rock
Citizen Journalist

Three unnamed sources have reportedly told CNN that one Fox News personality pointed a pistol at another Fox News personality following an on-air debate last October.  The incident occurred off-air.  The sources related that Sean Hannity pointed a pistol at  Juan Williams in a manner that caused the pistol's laser-light to bounce around on Williams body.

The matter was allegedly reported to Fox management.

After the story broke this week Williams tried to minimize the incident by saying it was being sensationalized and that he never felt that he was in harm's way.    Hannity, who stressed that he has permits to carry guns in five states and is well trained in firearms use and safety, said that the gun was not loaded and that he never pointed it at his black co-worker.

Sean Hannity's multi-state gun licensure would seem to indicate that he has had some training in the proper use of firearms.  Sean, did those instructors forget to tell you to always treat weapons as though they are loaded - and to never point a gun at anyone unless you are prepared to use it?  And try as you might to deny pointing the weapon at Williams, that pesky laser light provides a stronger and more convincing statement to the contrary.

And as for you Juan, your claim that "It was clear Sean put my safety and security above all else and we continue to be great friends." almost sounds like you are apologizing for being in Hannity's gunsight.  Are you sure you wouldn't rather be back working with your sane friends at NPR?
