Tucker Carlson Criticizes Fox News' Gun Safety Report While On Fox News

Fox News' Tucker Carlson criticized his own network's segment Sunday morning during a report on gun safety.

"Fox & Friends Weekend" aired a segment featuring a woman whose son was shot and killed accidentally while playing at a friend's house. The video was meant to draw attention to a new bill that would require the safe storage of all firearms in homes.

Directly after the segment ran, Carlson interrupted his co-hosts to disagree with the network's intention behind the clip.

"The point of that package was, guns are scary, gun owners are a threat to you and your children," he said.

He continued to argue that a much higher percentage of children died drowning in bathtubs last year than in accidental shootings, and wondered why that was not a focus of the video.

"I'd like to see a package on 'Do you have a bathtub at home? Because I need to know that before I send my child over to your house,'" he said. "A little perspective might be helpful."
