Dana Perino appeared on Fox News Wednesday evening where she suggested that female victims of violence should “make better decisions” to escape harm.
According to the Huffington Post, the issue was discussed following the murder-suicide of Kansas City Chief’s linebacker Jovan Belcher, who shot his girlfriend numerous times before taking his own life at the Chiefs practice facility.
Belcher and his 22-year-old girlfriend, Kassandra Perkins, endured months of problems, police reports state, notes the Huffington Post.
The Fox News team argued NBC sports columnist, Bob Costas point, which argued for better gun control, during Wednesday’s edition, stating that if Perkins was armed she would have been able to protect herself.
Perino reportedly interjected, “I think it skirts the issue. Women are victims of violence all the time."
Perino’s co-host Greg Gutfeld agreed that the women in domestic violence cases should have guns as well to which Perino replied, “Well, maybe, or make better decisions.”
