SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Let me read from the AP, Katie Pavlich. They said that what the president announced would not have prevented the slaughter of twenty first graders at Sandy Hook Elementary, of fourteen county workers at a holiday party in San Bernardino, and it would have had no impact in keeping weapons from the hands of suspects in several of the deadliest recent mass shootings that have occurred, that have resulted and spurred these calls for more gun controls. So, they're really feel-good legislation, it's not going to do anything.
KATIE PAVLICH: It's not going to do anything. And it really is disappointing, because the president has an opportunity here to work with organizations like the NRA, who actually done a lot of significant work when it comes to actually keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. You know, Hillary Clinton can attack the NRA all she wants. The fact is that the NRA has a higher approval rating than Hillary Clinton does when it comes to trustworthiness, that's for sure. And the bottom line is that the NRA really has done work with, in the past, previous presidents in terms of getting mental health legislation on the books, make sure people who are mentally ill cannot get their hands on firearms. This is about grandstanding for Hillary Clinton, it's about grandstanding for Barack Obama and it really is a shame. And the bottom line is if the president really wants to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, maybe his Justice Department should stop releasing felons, many of which are illegal immigrants, on to the streets of America. They can start there.
