Fox News host Jeanine Pirro attacked the video game industry and privacy rights while defending the Second Amendment at the 2013 NRA Annual Meetings in Texas on Friday.

She began her speech by claiming that terrorists like the Boston bombing suspects had more rights in the United States than law-abiding citizens. Pirro blasted Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick for not releasing confidential tax and financial information about the bombing suspects, claiming it was contrary to the “fundamental values of our founding fathers.”

“Privacy? What privacy?” she remarked. “It was our hard earned money.”

Pirro recalled that she had been included in a controversial database of gun owners published by a New York newspaper in the aftermath of the Newtown shootings.

“How dare you compare me to a nutjob on the lunatic fringe in desperate need of medication doing nothing but watching Hollywood’s blood-soaked movies and playing the liberal Hollywood’s violent video games for days at a time,” she said.

Pirro told the NRA members that disarming lawful gun owners would not reduce crime or violence.

“It’s not the legal gun owners you have to worry about. It’s the illegal gun owners that are killing us,” she remarked to loud applause.
