Judge Jeanine Pirro Rips Journal News For Outing Her As A Gun Owner
FOX News host Judge Jeanine Pirro delivers a message to The Journal News after the publication outed her as a gun owner in their effort to identify gun permit holders in New York state.
PIRRO: In the aftermath of the shooting of innocent children you, the Journal News, thinks it's important to what? Out us? Think about it. You think it's important to out us in the aftermath of the Newtown shooting? How dare you connect law-abiding citizens who've gone through rigorous background checks, who've been finger-printed, investigated and received judicial approval to exercise their Second Amendment right.
How dare you compare them to a nut job on the lunatic fringe, in desperate need of medication, playing violent videogames for days at a time. How dare you compared him to battered women in hiding, to the families of policies officers and to judges and D.A.'s like me.
This animal massacred babies. He didn't have a pistol permit. He didn't go through a vigorous background check to get a pistol permit. He took someone else's gun. And, by the way, although it is none of your business, there is a reason people have guns. We don't need your sanctimonious permission.
