It’s shameful that America is able to secure events like the Oscars but cannot find a way to make schools safe, Fox News host Sean Hannity said Thursday on his show.

Hannity was interviewing Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera and commentator Dan Bongino about the Broward school shooting, when things turned to gun control and heated up.

“I was a cop. When I used to sit in this cell, sometimes I would talk to the criminals we arrested on gun crimes. America, are you listening to me? Criminals don’t care. They don’t give a damn about your gun laws,” Bongino said. “As a matter of fact, they love your gun laws. You know why? They get to prey on bunch of innocent sheep out there.”

“I’m not disputing Geraldo’s authenticity here,” he added. “I’m simply suggesting the solution he presents is an irrational one that — we both agree, Geraldo, this kid should have never been in possession of firearms. I’m simply saying your solution will not work. It’s entirely irrational.”


Rivera responded by stressing the importance of his own children’s safety and said we must protect America’s students at all costs.

“I have five kids. I’ve got a 12-year-old who is in high school. I want her protected the way my money is protected in the bank,” Rivera said. “I want her protected the way we are when we go into airports. I want our most — we always say what’s your most precious possession? My most precious possession are my children. We always say that. Let’s put our money where our mouths are.”

Hannity agreed with Rivera and said if it’s possible to secure the Oscar’s red carpet and America’s airports, then there should be no excuse for failing to protect its classrooms as well.

“At the end of the day, we all agree on that point. And you can’t tell me that if we can secure the airport, secure our planes, secure the Oscar’s red carpet and everybody else that wants security, that we can’t do it for our kids,” Hannity concluded. “That’s a must.”
