Chris Wallace Links Bombing Suspect Manhunt To Gun Debate: How Many In Lockdown Area ‘Might Like A Gun’?

In the middle of Fox News’ coverage of the ongoing manhunt in the Boston area for the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing, Chris Wallace chimed in with a political take. Commenting the region that is under a firm lockdown, Wallace questioned whether the residents in those neighborhoods “might like a gun” to protect themselves.

“There are so many issues here,” Wallace said, noting the various pieces of information we don’t know (such as: Did the suspects see the information the FBI released?). He then offered one an example of an issue “we’ll be talking about Sunday.”

“All the people in that Watertown neighborhood, hiding, doors locked,” Wallace began. “How many of them, do you think — and worried that this guy might get into their home, maybe take them hostage — how many of them, do you think, might like a gun? To be able to protect themselves and defend their homes.”

“That feeds into the gun debate that we’ve had here in Washington,” Wallace asserted. He noted it will be one of the many issues they’ll be discussing on Fox News Sunday.
