Conservative columnist Ann Coulter is telling President Barack Obama, “Screw you!” because she says that his plan implement universal background checks for all gun purchases “means universal confiscation, universal extermination.”

Following Obama’s Monday speech in Minnesota calling on Congress to implement “real and lasting change” on gun control, Fox News host Sean Hannity blasted “The Anointed One” for being concerned with “accepting gay scout masters, gay marriage, gun control, watering down welfare requirements, abortion rights, war on women.”

“Connecticut, Aurora, Tucson, these are crazy people,” Coulter ranted in agreement. “That is the problem. Everything they are telling you about what they can do about guns is lie. The problem with universal background checks is we basically have universal backgrounds check now. Any licensed gun dealer is performing a background check.”

“The only way to enforce a universal — the last 0.1 percent of guns that are transferred by collectors and so on is to have universal gun registration,” she added. “Universal background check means universal registration, universal registration means universal confiscation, universal extermination. That is how it goes in history. Do not fall for universal background checks.”

In fact, the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence estimates that about 40 percent of gun purchasers do not go through background checks, but opponents of gun control dispute this claim.

“If Obama talks about gay rights, if Obama talks about guns, immigration and climate control, then the media race to every Republican, ‘What do you think about what Obama said?,’ and we don’t focus on the economy,” Hannity opined.

Coulter replied: “Not only that, just to follow up on your point right there, it’s just that they are talking about it, they must demonize people that are legal gun owners and, ‘Obama, look at him. He cares about the children.’”

“Screw you!” she exclaimed. “You think we don’t care about the children? You’re the one who won’t do anything about the mentally ill.”
