    And points it at a co-worker.

    I don't care how many years Hannity has been handling firearms. If he pointed it at someone, he violated one of the prime rules of firearm safety. There is no other way of describing the act of pointing a firearm at another human being. The fact that this happened in the workplace simply compounds the egregious nature of Hannity's behavior.

    There was nothing "professional" or "safe" about this.

    Fox isn't even denying the story. Which apparently made Juan Williams (the person Hannity pointed the gun at) uncomfortable. The incident was reported to Fox Human Resources and Legal; which responded by not even giving Hannity a slap on the wrist.

    If you want to know what I find so unpleasant about gun culture in this country - it's incidents like this.

    if you want to know why anti gunners are unpleasant is because they might rush to make things seem something they are not............. from your OWN link.

    It's the unpleasant human beings that make things unpleasant for others, regardless of cultures. They are everywhere and part of the human experience. The internet and PRSI gave them power without consequence.

    Juan Williams would be the last person who would just sweep something like this under the rug...especially if he was the target. I'll take his word over CNN's on this one.

    Neither Williams, Hannity, nor Fox News claims this didn't happen. The only thing is dispute is whether or not Hannity actually pointed the gun at Williams.

    But that begs the question: Why was Hannity handling a firearm in a TV studio? If he wants to show Juan Williams (or anybody else) his firearms he can do it on his own time and on his own property.

    Is it OK at your workplace to pull out a gun? Whether you actually point it at a co-worker or not is all but immaterial. I think 99.9% of the workplaces in America (I suppose gun stores, firing ranges, and police stations being among the exceptions) you'd be fired. Would YOU be OK where random people started pulling out guns at work?

    And quite frankly, I find Fox (and Hannity, and Williams) attempt to minimize the seriousness of this incident alarming.

    And, at the very minimum, Hannity most likely violated one of the conditions of his New York concealed carry license, which states:

    NYC Title 38
    And Fox News is probably n violation of the same Statute, which specifically requires that an employer:

    Again: Fox, Hannity, and Williams don't deny that Hannity pulled out a gun in a New York city workplace.

    I know, isn't it terrible? I mean, after the last time PRSI went off and accidentally killed somebody, I've been wanting stricter safeguards in its use.

    An anonymous source is more credible than the two people involved.

    Those are the new facts.

    The facts, confirmed by Hannity, Williams, and Fox' own statements are that Hannity pulled a gun out in a TV studio.

    and

    Whatever way you choose to interpret that, it seems indisputable that Sean Hannity was publicly displaying a handgun in a TV studio. Hannity' experience with handguns is irrelevant. The fact that the gun was (allegedly) unloaded is irrelevant.

    It is contrary to the terms of Hannity's concealed carry permit to "draw, expose or display handgun(s) unnecessarily."

    Hannity didn't draw or display his handgun in an act of self-defense. He did it to make a point in an argument.

    You are nuts if you think its OK to pull out a gun in a New York City office building just to show it off.

    And, for your information, the person at the DA's office was well aware of the report, and said that their office was investigating. New York City is pretty strict about people pulling out guns.

    It's NYC, you'd be pretty safe unless you were a bystander.
