Hannity Panel Explodes Over Gun Control Debate

The murder-suicide concerning NFL linebacker Jovan Belcher has reignited the national debate over gun control, especially in the wake of commentary provided Sunday night by NBC sportscaster Bob Costas. Radio host Leo Terrell and author Erik Rush appeared on Sean Hannity‘s show tonight for an incredibly heated segment on gun control. At one point, Rush got so frustrated with Terrell interrupting him he loudly begged Terrell to “please shut up!”


    these liberal creeps will never change OUR right to bear arms, NEVER !!!!!!!!

    • John Patrick

      Bob Costas has armed bodyguards. How is that for hypocrisy?

      • caskinner

        Now the little dweeb really needs armed bodyguards!

    The NFL Is Helping Obama Ban Guns! Boycott Now!!

    Boycott the NFL

    December 4, 2012

    Within a day after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher’s
    and his girlfriend’s deaths, the establishment launched a surprise
    attack on the right to bear arms and the Second Amendment using guns
    as a scapegoat to distract from the most-likely culprit: the
    concussion-inducing, psychotropic drug-addicted, gladiatorial thug,
    celebrity rock star culture plaguing the NFL.

    Globalist puppet front man Bob Costas

    This past weekend on Sunday Night Football, sports commentator Bob
    Costas, with the full support of NBC and the NFL, indicted the “gun
    culture” as he quoted
    an article by Fox Sports columnist James Whitlock which blamed
    guns for the sad killings that took place. He read the following
    publicly on air to millions of NFL viewers across the country:

    “Our current gun culture ensures that more and more
    domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy and that more
    convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car
    will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead.”

    “Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate
    our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing
    confrontation rather than avoiding it. In the coming days, Jovan
    Belcher’s actions, and their possible connection to football will
    be analyzed. Who knows?”
    However, blaming guns for the deaths is like blaming spoons and
    forks for obese people.

    There can be no mistake that the Costas incident was a flagrantly
    bold, covert and coordinated attack on citizens’ gun rights, but
    this episode is just the latest in a series of pathetic attempts in
    the course of the Obama administration to subvert the Second

    The current president’s lengthy resumé of attacks on guns
    speaks volumes about his attitude towards Americans’ right to bear

    In the book Debacle, Obama
    is quoted telling author John R. Lott, Jr., PhD, “I don’t
    believe that people should be able to own guns,” while both worked
    at the University of Chicago Law School in 1996.

    While running for a Senate seat in Illinois, Obama filled out a
    survey by a liberal
    Independent voter organization saying that while it is
    politically impracticable, “restrictions on the sale and possession
    of handguns are necessary to protect the public safety.”

    His response to another question in the same survey is equally
    disturbing. To a question asking, “Do you support legislation to
    ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns, assault weapons
    and ammunition for handguns and assault weapons?,” Obama reportedly
    answered: “I would support banning the sale of ammunition for
    assault weapons and limiting the sale of ammunition for handguns.”

    Months before the Fast and Furious gun-walking fiasco surfaced,
    Obama had reportedly met
    with gun control advocate Sarah Brady telling her he was working
    on the gun issue “under the radar,” and that gun regulations were
    “very much on his agenda.”

    “In the meeting, she said, Obama discussed how records get into
    the system and what can be done about firearms retailers. Her husband
    specifically brought up the proposed ban on large magazine clips, and
    she noted that even former vice president Dick Cheney had suggested
    that some restrictions on the clips might make sense,” wrote Jason
    Horowitz for the Washington Post.

    Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder is on
    record 15 years ago saying we need to “brainwash people into
    thinking about guns in a vastly different way,” and at an October
    debate during his campaign for a second term, Obama
    said, “What I’m trying to do is to get a broader conversation
    about how do we reduce the violence generally. Part of it is seeing
    if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced.”

    It can now be counted on that every time there is a random act of
    violence involving firearms, the event will be used to further
    eviscerate the Second Amendment and restrict gun rights.

    Are we witnessing the “brainwashing” Holder talked about?

    Let’s not forget they fired
    Hank Williams Jr. from performing the intro to Monday Night
    Football after decades simply for expressing his belief that the
    presidency was turning into a dictatorship, clearly indicating who
    the corporations and networks answer to.

    Now is the time to stand up to these establishment control freaks,
    to these social engineers that try to blame every tragedy on, not
    just the Second Amendment, but our freedoms in their efforts to
    disarm America, as so many others countries around the world have
    already been.

    We need to ask ourselves: Why is the NFL endorsing an
    attack on the most bedrock of American freedoms that almost
    no one else in the world enjoys? It’s because firearms are the
    hallmark of a free society and the last thing standing in the way of
    a complete global takeover of the U.S.

    It’s time to boycott the NFL, NBC and Bob Costas unless they
    come out and apologize and repudiate their attack on the rights of
    millions of gun owners across the country.

    image sent in by an Infowars reader

    In response to Bob Costas’ unmistakable declaration of war
    on the Second Amendment, is launching a new contest
    looking for the best video taped open letter to Mr. Costas telling
    him why the Second Amendment, citizen gun rights, the Bill of Rights
    and the Constitution are essential to a free society.

    The contest aims to call attention to the media’s blatantly
    transparent efforts to control and shape public opinion in regards to

    Additionally, everyone is encouraged to mail spoons with notes
    to Mr. Costas because, by his own logic, spoons are responsible for
    the rising obesity epidemic that has claimed the lives of millions of

    Join in boycotting the NFL, NBC and Bob
    Costas unless they issue an apology and renounce their claims against
    the Second Amendment.

    • Sol_of_Texas

      Has anyone started a petition to the NFL threatening a boycott? Please post the link, I’ll sign. (I don’t even recognize professional football anymore with all the rule changes and awful refereeing.)

  • John Patton

    If you are not winning your point then talk loud and long so the other guy can’t make his point.

  • dntmkmecomoverther

    Leo Terrell is a dumbshidt. No facts, no evidence, just a big mouth and no etiquette. Typical attorney low life.

  • Greg T Beaty

    Terrell made me want to kill myself, Wow totally crasy really.

  • caskinner

    Leo Terrell was a complete azz. A stupid one at that.

  • Kingscairn

    Terrell must be Jason Witlocks brother – one heluv a stupid n____, oh, i can’t say that or will be censored !

  • Debra JM Smith

    How can people be so stupid! –Do they REALLY believe there is no other way to kill a person?

  • HadEnuf

    These sickening, suck-up sycophants such as Costas need their ass kicked! They are sanctimonious, live in a bubble , punks that feel unthreatened as think they can say what the hell they please without having any repercussions taken against them! Toe the State line, you little pathetic weinie!

  • HadEnuf

    Why the hell does FOX feel that they have to invite such racist fools as Leo on the show to that they are unbiased? – look what happens!

    • CQ

      Fox gave Terell enough rope to hang himself several times over. He blustered and shouted, preventing Rush from speaking. Terell showed typical liberal colors by not allowing his opponent to have his say.

    • BruceD

      Giving both sides a forum for their view is good. Especially when one of the guests tries to shut the other up by yelling and trying to talk over the statement of the other. Hence the shouter became a buffoon.

    • Thomas Loftis

      Because Fox wants to be fair and balanced, but they need to keep some of these hater’s off the show, like the one guy on the right!

  • Debra JM Smith

    They should have shut that one man’s mic off.

    • Gary Rose


      • Debra JM Smith

        Exactly… Why not?

  • Cranky Sourdough

    Oh if only there was a law against murder,,, yeah that would fix everything.

    • Mac McQueen

      They forgot to tell Abel, but I guess it didn’t matter. That wasn’t a gun crime.

  • David B.

    That was idiotic of Costas to go on a tirade in the middle of a game.It was not the place or the time.I do have respect for Costas when it’s limited to sports but when it comes to this just because he holds a mic doesn’t to give him the right to preach for which he will lose some credibility.As for Terrell he’s a loud mouth goof that suffers from brain farts.

    • Sol_of_Texas

      Despite Costas’ awards, I don’t consider him a very good writer or sportscaster. I’d rather listen to someone who is articulate and has played the game, rather than guys like the Alberts, Mussberger, or Costas. Even if Howard Cosell was an idiot, at least he challenged people’s vocabularies.

    • bdbrad

      I quit watching and listening to beady-eyed Bob years ago. The guy is as useless as Terrell.

    • WhiteFalcon

      Costas is an idiot, that is why NBC, (Nothing But Crap), hired him.

      • Thomas Loftis

        That’s a good one, NBC Nothing But Crap, or the U.N. United Nothing!

  • 2War Abn Vet

    The gun is no more responsible for Belcher’s crime than the microphone is for Costas’ and Terrell’s stupidity.

  • John Whittington

    They always get morons to debate Gun Control. Idiots, don’t you know that you can not change the 2nd Amendment? It is part of the Amendments to the Constitution and can only be changed by Congress, but let me be very blunt! If Congress changes the right to bear arms and they will be voted out!!!

  • Anthony Alexander

    Why is it when a sports figure or movie star
    does some spectacular deed by offing themselves in some spectacular manner the
    real mental midgets of this country come out of the woodwork and start spouting
    off their views and takes on why it happens and attaching a their solution to
    the problem that has nothing to do with the problem. Statements of gun control
    couched in a victimization of BLACKS displays ignorance based on current statistics.
    Lets talk about the REAL FACTS. In over 90% of the cases where handguns are used by BLACKS are stolen and obtained through underground BLACK markets supported by the drug trade these BLACKS participate in. It is almost always BLACK on BLACK crimes committed by these BLACKS. In the end it appears that these BLACKS have no self-control. Their only form of communication
    is violence and rage victimizing others, but god forbid when the tables are
    turned and they are shot for perpetrating crimes it becomes a racial shooting
    or racial motivated act…..Most of these BLACKS are hypocrites and manufacture
    their own problems and in doing so maintain their victimization attitudes. They
    don’t have to look any farther than the mirror to see why they have social problems…..
    I know a lot of respectful blacks who don’t subscribe to this form of behavior
    and victimization attitudes and have become successful productive members of
    society…….Now this idiot like Costas tries to tie the above with gun control
    when a sports figure kills himself……when the event has nothing to do with the REAL
    problem of GUNS I just mentioned above…..

    • Thomas Loftis

      Very well said Sir, and now the blacks that voted for Mr. Obama are wanting their free handouts including Detroit! Black’s bankrupt Birmingham,Al for they were on the boards, city council, the mayor, all misused the tax payers money and now black gangs have taken over, most all of the malls and buildings.are setting empty!

  • bippybellito

    Costas has just turned into Anderson Cooper….a laughable stooge. Bad move…one among many…made by NBC. Sorry, from now on the Sound Goes Down, or I don’t watch at all.

  • Jobs for Americans

    yeah yeah…if he didn’t have a gun he would have used a fricken knife or his bare hands or a hammer

  • richard

    Ok they thinbk O,J,’s wife Nicolle would still be alive if knives had been outlawed? It would look funny for us to have to tear the meat with our teeth, if they outlaw knives.

  • CQ

    Hind sight: I think Fox should have cut off Terell’s mike when he refused to let another guest be heard.

  • Danmo43

    A million people were killed in Rwanda with machetes.
    Millions have been killed throughout history with swords, knives and arrows.
    These people are idiots. I have a metal ink pen I could kill with. For that matter a 2×4…

  • StopObama2012

    Typical Liberal tactic. Nothing new there.

  • Retired Chief Petty Officer

    I am certain that I will faint dead away the first time I hear a liberal apologist keep his mouth closed during the time that a conservative or contrarian viewpoint is being espoused by a guest on a show such as Hannity’s. I have stopped listening to these demogogues who have no sense of equity or comity when they debate. Mr. hannity should have an on/off switch to close interruptions and abusive attacks from being heard. It detracts from the subject matter, the information flow, and indeed the usefulness of his program.

  • Retired Chief Petty Officer

    The message that needs to be heard by all of these politicians and gun grabbers is that we live in a land with a written Constitution. That Constitution was amended immediately after passage and ratification by ten amendments referred to at the time of passage as the bill of rights. The amendments delineate how much control and authority we were granting the federal government and,even more importantly that we reserved all other rights to ourselves. The Second amendment is very clear that the citizen is a member of the amred militia and that Congress shall not have a right ot pass laws to infringe that right. further implied in that statement is the added caveat the tha people have that right to arms, not the states. The whole system of registration, licensing and “granting of the privilege” of concealed carry are in fact infringements of the intent and the purpose of the second amendment.

  • Tommy

    Maybe bows, arrow and knives should be outlawed as well. Wasn’t it just last week that someone killed a woman and father (or father-in-law?) with a knife and bow and arrow? Or maybe outlaw electricity because someone had a mishap with a live wire.

  • Alex

    The Constitution gives the people the RIGHT to keep and bear arms, NOTHING can take it away, not federal laws, not UN treaties, nothing! The only way they would get the people’s guns is if we gave them up, The Constitution TRUMPS all other federal laws and treaty’s, Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. If the guy who caused all this noise had used a Bat or a Knife then what? Ban Baseball and cooking??

  • Sol_of_Texas

    Mr. Terrel is definitely rude and hardly a class act. He’s a pretty good at hysterics. By the end of the segment, I couldn’t remember if he had made a point other than he is in favor of gun control, “just because”.

  • ed h

    Leo Terrell, is often on the Hannitty show and never lets you down.He constantly spouts racism and anti American views. I have never found him to be informative or factual. Most of his time is spin points and out right lies. You can always count on lots of yelling,outbursts. Yes, America is worse off having this type of hater having any say…

    • Rosie46

      Because facts do not support his position. He and others like him should admit that the black family has been destroyed by the policies of the Democrats, and 50 years of this have resulted in what we see in Chicago and other urban areas. Turn this around and you can turn around the failure of the culture that has brought this about.

  • nowackohere

    Bob Costas should lead by example! Why does’nt he call the press and bring out the security people hired to watch his various properties and announce that they will no longer be carrying firearms while on the clock!

  • souperd

    Terrell fits a sterotype, and I think everyone can agree on what that sterotype is: He is a stupid /vi&&a spouting hatered and stupidity. Blaming all the problems of the Afro fo fo community on white people and the rights that the constitution (formulated by white people) upholds, and are afforded to all our citizens. Of course the, abuse of the rights that we have been given has to be placed on someone else not the po black man. No black man can possibly be responsible for the crime they commit. It’s the oppressoin they feel that causes the voilence they partake in. Please go back to your huts in the black continent with your vile attitude.

  • james

    Only proved that the left are a bunch of lying, jabbering fools who have no place in decent society and should be removed.

  • John Patrick

    Leo Terrell is a far left idiot. I pay no nevermind to the far left.

  • Carlos

    Nobody seems to get it. The 2nd amendment has nothing to do with self defense, gun collecting or hunting. It has everything to do with, arming the people so that they may keep their rights from being taken away, by the government. Freedom is not only, not free. It’s damned expensive.

  • bob ster

    leo terrel ? hmmmm , a major force in the O J Simpson fiasco perpetrated on the american public in 1995 to the shame of 4 other lawyersr who should have appoligized for desctrating our judiccial system with lies and frudulent testemony and false evidence .
    all to save another Football murderer,, not unlike this Belcher Bully who murdered the mother of his child ..The only good thing was his suicide after the event showing he had more courage than OJ SIMPSON & leo terrel , kadashian , and marcus allen and others where all a part of it , but instead we hung the police detectives and smeared them as racist ..
    the bob ster .

  • ste1021

    Tyrell just enforces the fact that so many black males are just angry, angry, angry. No redeeming quality, just react with aggressiveness and more anger.

  • nina dug

    While gentlemen like Eric Rush sit waiting their turn, never interrupting; that’s what “brought up in a barn” big mouth liberals like Leo Terrell do when they don’t know what they are talking about and are losing an argument. They yell and interrupt and look like the fools that they are….. They always do that! ALWAYS!!! Who needs them? I say send them back to CNN, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, and all the other liberal obama news media. God knows there are enough of those!

  • A Gun Owner

    Wonderful tirade by a man that has no knowledge of what he talking about! Sean should have “Pulled The Plug” on him.

  • APFL

    Leo Libtard Terrell’s mic needed to be muted…

  • The_American_Way

    Leo Terrell is a fool and if you had any doubt about the fact that he can’t control himself this video will dispel your doubt. As others have said here, I have to question why Hannity keeps bringing this overbearing bully on his show. I have seen him several times and I’ve never seen him make a germane point and since he can’t, he depends on trying to intimidate and bully anyone who disagrees with him.

  • Lanny

    Never heard of either of the men.. I will say Leo Terrell seems to be full of hate, but most of all seeking his own agenda. These idiots are not going stop until they get there own way, plain and simple. I agree, just another extreme left big mouth… =^0 !!

  • Mark

    Typical progressive tactic. Yell over the other guy to drown him out. Whenever someone does this, they automatically lose the argument as far as I’m concerned.

  • TheTexasCooke

    If you want to lay this at somebody’s feet, Jason, how about the journalists…correction, sports writers,
    who snigger [wink wink nudge nudge] every time a professional athlete pulls some sophomoric, antisocial, crap instead of castigating them for the *ssholes that they are. He used a gun because O. J. already had the knife franchise, and Tiger already had that whole golf club thing tied up….Grow up Jason…and bet you didn’t do your future and that of the NFL by aligning yourself with the
    socialist pr*cks in D. C.

  • Harold

    Leo reminds me of a male donkey; all he does is bray.

  • ARMYOF69

    Costas needs to stay with what he is familiar with…staring at football players arses.

  • BruceD

    Is just me, but Hostas was paraphrasing someone else’s article. Granted, the timing and venue was not appropriate but he basically shuffled the whole position to someone else.

  • REID

    On top of everything that Turn Coat Bill O’Riely wants the Federal government to be in charge of all matters pertaining to guns . The very reason the 2nd amendment was written was to allow the individual and the states to protect themselves from a Federal Government run Amok

  • 1JBRice1

    it’s because of people like this “person” that makes me want to own several guns.

  • RedMeatState

    Leo interrupts so that his opposition won’t be heard! And he makes no sense but his opposition does. A time tested tactic of the Left.
    Kind of funny that he tells another bIack man to not inject race into the argument!

  • Razstetter

    All of these stupid liberal fools that re-elected this egotistical moron for a second term , reap what you have just sown , it’s like they all have blinders on and cannot see the nose on their own faces anymore ! The Constitution of The United State through the Bill of Rights guarantees me the right to own and to bare arms , ….that right I will never surrender and I just hope this loudmouth liberal that was on Hannity last night shows up one day on my front porch to confiscate my weapons !

  • Rustytruck

    Sean, Why in the hell didn’t you cut that guy’s mike off! This is so typical of the Democratic arguments, they are so rude and so wrong they feel they can’t show enough respect to let the other guy finish his reply.

  • Rustytruck

    Also, I’ll guarantee you if Bob Costas was put in the same scenario facing lethal force and he had a weapon, he would use it just like the rest of us. We have the right to defend ourselves, and if this girl had a gun she’d still be alive, why is that wrong? There is no argument to support allowing someone to kill you just because you can’t have a weapon, the aftermath is still the same she’d be dead without protection and you can’t argue with that Bob Costas.

  • Contrarianthefirst

    Well, now isn’t that special?

  • Thomas McAuliffe

    time to fire him and export him to a comunist traitor country totally banning him from ever being in broadcasting again he is a comunist idiot
    i think he should be stripped of his citizenship and loose all his constitutional rights and see how he likes it i bet he will squeal like a baby pig!!

  • dougded

    This issue wasn’t about guns but about drug induced psychotic behavior and uncivilized actions of thugs.

  • Jack Parker

    Costas and Terell are both, like all lliberals, either ignorant, stupid, insane or criminally naive (or all of the above).

  • cathy

    Terrell was terrible. I thought they would shut his mike off so that Erik Rush could speak, but NO. WHY?


    Typical, Leo Terrell, if you cannot be right, be wrong at the top of your voice; pathetic.

  • Thomas Loftis

    Alcohol and pain killers and money have, kill more people than firearm’s ever will, people that are against Firearms will be slaves again one day (and don’t realize it) if they are taken from the American people, this Bob Costas and this black guy on the right, I have no ideal who neither one is and really don’t care, need to grow up or go away, what is the big deal about firearms, they’re a part of American’s History, oh they have about taken history out of schools, criminals are going to always have them, research the countries that have had their guns taking away and crime has double! I like to shoot at targets, it’s a sport but I wouldn’t call it a game as these 300 pds men playing child ball games, I started shooting when I was 5 and I will teach my grandkids to shoot with alot of safety being put into place.

  • JAS64

    Typical leftist approach. NEVER let the person who is right get a word in. He was afraid to mention that this was a BLACK on BLACK crime!!!

  • Jack Bynum

    OK, Sean. I know you use Leo to illustrate the liberal mindset. Why you keep inviting this loud mouthed
    black moron on the show is beyond me. Leo has made your point ad infinitum. When Leo gets through with his rant one has no idea what was said by his opponent or him.

    Give us a break.

  • William Rose

    Form the beining the progessive movement is to establish one world government,what is a better way than the destruction of the Consitution


    This is the typical result when you present a logical and intelligent argument that contradicts their desired agenda or rhetoric. They interrupt, scream over top of youwhen you try to speak and believe they are going to wi teh argument by beratting you for your views but GOD forbid you inteerrupt one of their tyrades with intelligent thought.
    This fool belongs up there with Jesse Jackson, Al sharpton and the rest of the black oeftists who have kept the black population under control with their race baiting and blaming everyone else for the blacks problems.
    They should be banned form public platforms for the good of the black community as a whole.

  • gwedem5995

    I like Hannity but he more or less kept talking while the first man was talking. But the second man waited patiently and did not interject and when he wasn’t allowed to finish his statement, the first man’s
    mike should have been shut off. I guess when libs think they are right, they feel if they are rude and talk louder, it will make us believe them but the sad part is most of the idiots believe them. All I know is that even if they banned all guns in the US, the criminals will still get them, just like the drug laws, has it ever stopped the scum from being high all the time.

  • Mac McQueen

    Please, Please put Mr Terrell on a “NO GUN List”. It is clear to me, and I would hope to anyone who sees this clip that he does not have sufficient judgment to possess, operate, or manage the operation of an automobile, much less any other type of deadly weapon. I frightens me to think that an individual this out of control walks the streets.

  • Terry

    That kind of interrupting and “diatripe” is precisely how those that have no argument pursue their losing commentary. One man was logical and the other loud, one conservative and one liberal, status normal!

  • James

    Hannity sucks because he will not control the out of control nut.

  • Jen

    That’s a black liberals for you. They never shut up. The problem is that they blow a lot of smoke and don’t add anything of value or make any sense.

  • David Clements

    Leo Terrel has been nothing but rude ever since the first time he was interviewed. Every time I’ve seen him on any program, he has always acted the same. He refuses to ever let anyone else speak. Why didn’t they just turn his mic off? I’ve seen them do it before with other guests who have shown their backsides.
