In the wake of a tragic incident in Maine that claimed the lives of at least 16 people , Sean Hannity raised eyebrows with his comments on how he prepares for potential incidents.
Just hours after the devastating events, Hannity discussed his personal security plan, which includes training in mixed martial arts during an interview with GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley.
“And then I always ask the question – when something like this happens, what is your plan? What do you do? I have a personal security plan. I train in mixed martial arts,” the Fox News host mentioned in an interview with GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley.
“I’ve been a big believer in the Second Amendment for a long time with the prayer that I would never have to use it.”
Hannity explained his personal security plan, expressing his support for the Second Amendment and his hope that he would never have to use it. These comments came following the tragic incident at a bar and bowling alley in Lewiston, Maine, the state’s second-largest city, where dozens of people were also wounded, as reported by law enforcement sources.
Remarkably, state police identified a person of interest, described as a military-trained instructor who had spent two weeks in a mental health facility over the summer.
Hannity also inquired about the underlying causes of such incidents in America during his conversation with Nikki Haley. The candidate called for serious law and order, the defunding of sanctuary cities, and an acknowledgment of the mental health issues affecting the nation.
Hannity’s mention of his MMA training raised eyebrows and sparked a wave of humor on social media, with some users joking that he was preparing to “block bullets with his body” during such an incident.
While Hannity’s comments may have been intended to address his personal security concerns and the broader issues in the United States, they have fueled discussions on the role of self-defense and preparedness in the face of incidents.
