Geraldo Rivera picks up a gun to make a theatrical point in the gun debate on ‘Hannity’

Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera put an exclamation point on a gun debate Tuesday with host Sean Hannity by brandishing what appeared to be a rifle or musket. (Look the following video).

“Give me that rifle,” Rivera told someone off camera on “Hannity.” Rivera, who rotates as a co-host on “The Five” on Fox News, grabbed the antique firearm and raised it.

“This is what the guns looked like,” Rivera said, drawing laughter from Hannity and another Fox News colleague, Pete Hegseth. “This is what they looked like when the Second Amendment was passed. That’s what they looked like.”

“You’re going to get arrested in New York for having that,” Hannity said with a smile. “I’m just warning you right now.”

“Do you want to own this? You can own this,” Rivera said. “You can load it, you can do whatever you want with it.”

“That’s very nice,” Hannity said.

A gun owner, Rivera was illustrating that the Second Amendment did not cover modern firearms capable of mass murder when the amendment was ratified in 1791. And that AR-15-style rifles go well beyond self-defense.

But his confrontation with Hannity and Hegseth, who boasted that he owned several AR-15s, mostly went nowhere. The two tried to embarrass Rivera for not seeming to know that “AR” stands for ArmaLite rifle and Hannity smugly said that Rivera had never fired one.

It appeared to be an attempt to diminish Rivera’s argument that defending oneself or one’s home does not require the firepower of an AR-15.

Previously, Hannity used the shootings in Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay, in which nearly 20 people were killed by gunmen using semi-automatic weapons, to argue dubiously that California’s strict gun laws don’t make citizens safer. .

The state has had one of the lowest rates of gun deaths in the country, according to 2020 figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and its mass shooting homicide rate is also below the national average, according to the California Public Policy Institute. reported last year.
