Local Fox reporter tells pro-gun rally: Cities with strict gun control laws are ‘not part of America’
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.
