MALKIN: What do you need to have? Neon lights that say, 'Islamic jihad,' 'Islamic jihad?' I mean, duh. They were screaming at the top of their lungs, 'Allahu Akbar,' and repeatedly swore in the name of Allah that they would continue to fight against us. And they talked repeatedly in the video, later in the clip, about how this is what God would have wanted, as they traipsed around the body of this innocent British soldier. It's barbaric. It's evil. And we need to call it what it is. And in large part, unfortunately, in British culture, among the progressives there, they brought it on themselves in some ways because of lax deportation policies, and an unwillingness to screen out and profile Islamic militants who are now doing this in a homegrown manner on British soil. It's tragic.
HANNITY: And also it does bring into question gun laws -- if the soldier had been able to protect himself and defend himself, which people all over the media in this country bragging about the fact, well, people don't have guns in england.
