Judge Jeanine: Chattanooga Victims Would Have Had a Chance If They Had Guns
On "Justice," Judge Jeanine Pirro reacted to the Chattanooga shooting and slammed President Obama for the gun-free zones policy that prevents service members from carrying guns on bases and at military recruiting offices.
"If our servicemen and women are experienced enough to carry a gun in a foreign land, they can damn well carry it here," Judge Jeanine stated.
"Mr. President, this didn't need to happen. And I for one am sick and tired of the namby-pamby, make-believe, politically correct fantasy world that you live in," Judge Jeanine said. "Here's a tip: We don't live in that world. We live in the real world."
"You have protection. Our servicemen and women - targeted for death - they would have a chance if they had a gun."
Watch Judge Jeanine's remarks above and read the transcript below.
THEY WANT TO KILL US. THEY'RE DETERMINED TO KILL US. THEY ARE HERE ON AMERICAN SOIL TO KILL US. AND THEY'RE *KILLING* US. AND AS WE MOURN THE MASSACRE OF FIVE AMERICAN HEROES OUR PRESIDENT TAKES IT IN STRIDE.
WITH ALL DUE RESPECT MR. PRESIDENT IT WAS NOT A CIRCUMSTANCE IT WAS A SLAUGHTER. ONE THAT YOU KNEW IT WAS COMING.
OUR MILITARY HAS BEEN THREATENED BY ISIS AND ISLAMIC TERRORISTS FOR MORE THAN A YEAR. IN MARCH AN ISLAMIC STATE *KILL LIST* WITH NAMES OF AMERICAN MILITARY MEMBERS WAS CONFIRMED BY THE WHITE HOUSE. YOUR ADMINISTRATION URGED FAMILIES TO BE VIGILANT. THEN IN MAY,*YOU* RAISED THE ALERT LEVEL AT U-S MILITARY BASES. YET THEY WERE DEFENSELESS, HAD NO WEAPONS. THEY WERE SITTING DUCKS. BUT YOUR ADMINISTRATION TALKS A GOOD GAME...
YOU NOT ONLY DON'T.YOU CANT EVEN CALL IT WHAT IT IS ISLAMIC TERRORISM. HOW IS IT ISLAMIC TERRORISM OVER THERE BUT NOT HERE IN AMERICA? WORRIED SOMEONE'S FEELINGS MIGHT GET HURT?
FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY PRACTICALLY BEGGED CONGRESS FOR HELP ... PROPHETICALLY PREDICTING WHAT WAS ABOUT TO HAPPEN.
SO NOW YOU GENIUSES ARE GOING TO HAVE HEARINGS AND DISCUSSIONS AND A REVIEW OF WHETHER OR NOT WE SHOULD ARM MILITARY PERSONNEL AT RECRUITING CENTERS ON AMERICAN SOIL.
GENERAL ODIERNO, THE ARMY'S TOP OFFICER, SAYS THAT ARMING SOLDIERS MAY CAUSE *MORE* PROBLEMS ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGES... THAT IT'S TOO EARLY TO SAY WHETHER WE SHOULD ARM THEM. TOO EARLY? FIVE MEN ARE DEAD.
IF OUR SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN ARE EXPERIENCED ENOUGH TO CARRY A GUN IN A FOREIGN LAND, THEY CAN DAMN WELL DO IT HERE.
AND I GET... THE FEAR THAT THEY MAY HAVE A SHOOTOUT ON A FRIDAY NIGHT IN THE BARRACKS BUT IF COPS CAN TAKE GUNS HOME, WHY CAN'T OUR ACTIVE MILITARY?
REAL LEADERS... GOVERNORS ACROSS THIS COUNTRY ARE ISSUING EXECUTIVE ORDERS TO END THE GUN FREE ZONES THAT PREVENT SERVICE MEMBERS FROM CARRYING GUNS IN MILITARY RECRUITING OFFICES.
AND IN CASE YOU DON'T REMEMBER MR. PRESIDENT, OUR FOUNDING FATHERS RECOGNIZED THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. ARE YOU GOING TO TELL ME THAT IF YOU FIGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY YOU DON'T HAVE THAT RIGHT, OR THAT
YOU LOSE IT? ARE YOU GOING TO TELL ME THERE IS NOT AN INHERENT NATURAL GOD GIVEN RIGHT OF SELF DEFENSE?
IF WE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CAN'T GIVE OUR SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN THE PROTECTION THEY NEED... THEY DESERVE... AND THEY'VE EARNED WHEN THEY COME HOME THEN SHAME ON US.
MR. PRESIDENT, THIS DID NOT NEED TO HAPPEN. I FOR ONE AM SICK AND TIRED OF THE NAMBY PAMBY MAKE BELIEVE POLITICALLY CORRECT FANTASY WORLD THAT YOU LIVE IN. HERE'S A TIP: WE DON'T LIVE IN THAT WORLD. WE LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD.
YOU HAVE PROTECTION. OUR SERVICEMEN-- TARGETED FOR DEATH-- WOULD HAVE HAD A CHANCE IF THEY HAD A GUN.
