Gun Control Advocate John Walsh’s “The Hunt” To Debut On CNN


John Walsh, the host of CNN’s new primetime series “The Hunt,” looks set to replace Piers Morgan as the cable network’s in-house gun control advocate, Politico reports. “We have a serious problem with guns in this country, and we refuse to address it,” Walsh, the creator and host of “America’s Most Wanted,” said yesterday. “The NRA solution to arm every grammar school 80-year-old teacher with a gun is absolutely ludicrous.”

Walsh also said that Vice President Joe Biden had agreed with his claim that politicians are “scared shitless” of the NRA. Morgan, no longer with CNN, drew national attention in 2012 and 2013 for taking on the National Rifle Association and advocating for gun control legislation after the Newtown, Ct., school shooting. Yesterday, Walsh called Morgan “the only journalist who had the balls to tackle the gun problem straight on.” Walsh’s “The Hunt,” which debuts July 13, is not a political talk show. It focuses on chasing criminals, similiar to “America’s Most Wanted.”
