Conservative firebrand Tomi Lahren agreed with Fox News host Sean Hannity that “something stinks” about the way the mainstream media has covered the Las Vegas massacre.
Criticizing politicians, celebrities and the media who are pushing again for gun control legislation immediately after the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, Lahren asked if murderers are going to think twice about the law before committing a crime.
“To those out there that want to lecture us on gun sense, gun safety,” Lahren said on “Hannity” Wednesday, somebody who is “hellbent on murdering thousands of people” will not likely be worrying about breaking a law.
Hannity and guest, singer Kaya Jones, agreed that “if you have evil intentions in your heart, you’re gonna find a way,” as they noted the arsenal of weapons stockpiled by gunman Stephen Paddock who opened fire on concert goers Sunday from his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel. The 64 year-old killed himself after the massacre left 58 dead and over 500 injured.
“Criminals, terrorists, psychos – they don’t obey our laws. They don’t care about your gun control,” Lahren said. “When you have a gun free zone, you are neutering everyone there.”
After discussing how criminals bent on violence will find a way using bombs, vehicles, knives and other instruments as weapons, Lahren posed another thought.
“Here’s my question though. Why are we spending all of this time—not us, but others in the news and others in the celebrity sphere—why are they spending so much time analyzing what kind of guns he used, how many he had?” she asked.
Cries for gun control legislation were almost immediate from the left following the attack, prompting backlash over the lack of respect for victims and their families. Late night television host Jimmy Kimmel came under fire after blasting Republicans who “should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country.”

“I want to know more about him and more about his girlfriend,” Lahren continued. “I want to know about the victims and their families.”
“Don’t you find there is something off here?” Hannity responded. “Really off?”
“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire,” Lahren said, agreeing.
“Usually in situations like this you know everything about the person. Every Facebook page they’ve ever been on, everyone they’ve ever known, and all of a sudden, all we’re talking about is the weapons he used and the firearms?” she concluded. “No, something stinks.”
