Sean Hannity has fill of gun control baloney: ‘I gotta get outta New York’

Conservative talker Rush Limbaugh abandoned tax-happy New York City for Florida years ago. Glenn Beck relocated his Mercury Radio Arts headquarters from New York to Texas. Will Fox News’s Sean Hannity be next out the door?

There’s something about that #guncontrolbaloney hashtag that leads us to suspect it’s not high taxes that has Hannity making rumblings about moving. Earlier today, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law what some have called the toughest gun control restrictions in the nation. The new legislation does take steps to protect the privacy of gun permit holders, but that comes a bit too late to help Hannity, who was among those “outed” by incoming Gawker editor-in-chief John Cook.

So, where to?

Correction: The initial version of this post incorrectly stated that Hannity’s gun permit was outed by the Journal News and its interactive map. In fact, Hannity’s gun ownership was reported by incoming Gawker editor-in-chief John Cook in August 2010. At the time, Cook wrote for Yahoo! News.  We regret the error.
