WTTG reporter Emily Miller told a group of people rallying for gun rights over the weekend that cities which had strict gun control laws like Washington, D.C. were “not part of America.”
In a video clip published by Media Matters on Wednesday, the chief investigative reporter for Fox’s D.C. affiliate speaks at a Jan. 19 rally for Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), whose newsletters have recommended advice on how to kill “urban thugs” who want to “Kill Whitey!”
“It’s great to be in Virginia, which is part of America where you recognize the Second Amendment,” Miller opens by saying. “I came from D.C. this morning, which is not part of America, because they don’t recognize the Second Amendment.”
She later explains: “I don’t call myself pro-gun, I call myself pro-Second Amendment, because a gun is a tool and this fight that we’re all in, this fight is for freedom, the freedom for the Bill of Rights.”
According to VCDL’s legislative tracking page, the organization supports lifetime concealed handgun permits, allowing faculty to carry handguns against even against the wishes of schools, and handguns in airport terminals.
The group also opposes closing background check loopholes at gun shows, and it “strongly” urges defeat of any bill that would make it a crime for a person subject to a protective order to possess a firearm.

Nevada GOP activist reveals how he ‘caucused for Bernie’ to help Trump win: ‘It would be a dream election’
Conservative activist Chuck Muth said that he temporarily switched parties to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in the Nevada caucuses.
Muth, who spoke to the Las Vegas Journal-Review while wearing a red Keep America Great hat, explained that he had crossed over to “vote for the weakest candidate possible of the Democrats.”
“It was kind of a way of demonstrating how absurd I think it is to have same-day registration as well as early voting for a caucus,” Muth explained. “So my wife and I last Sunday went to an early voting site, we changed parties right there on the spot. We caucused for Bernie.”
MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Mika troll Donald Trump with brutal fact-check of his jealous attacks on Obama
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski busted President Donald Trump's latest jealous attacks on his predecessor.
President Barack Obama noted the 11th anniversary Monday of the Recovery Act he signed, which set the stage for more than a decade of economic growth from depths of the worst recession in decades, and Trump lashed out hours later by calling those readily observable claims a "con job."
Buttigieg says Trump can ‘do chores’ if he’s unwilling to leave White House
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg joked on Monday about what he would do if President Donald Trump is unwilling to leave the White House after a 2020 loss.
During a campaign event in Reno, a voter worried that Trump might call his loss a hoax if the election is close.
"I mean, if he won't leave, I guess if he's willing to do chores, we can work something out," the candidate said to laughter and cheers.
Buttigieg argued that the best way to prevent Trump from "cheating" is to win by a significant margin.
"At the end of the day, there's only one president," he explained. "This is one of the reason we not just eke out a win, not just club everybody over the head and hope that we get to 51% and our Twitter followers outnumber your Twitter followers and we somehow piece together a squeaker."
