Judge Judy on Gun Control: ‘Bad guys will always get guns’

Judge Judy was talking some sense this week during an appearance on ABC’s “The View.”  

Though the septuagenarian supports Michael Bloomberg for president, she made it clear that she and the former NYC mayor don’t see eye to eye on one’s right to keep and bear arms, at least as it relates to carrying concealed firearms in the public square.   

“I am not a Michael Bloomberg surrogate,” said Judge Judy. “We may not agree on everything. I have always felt that the bad guys will always get guns. I was involved in criminal justice for a quarter of a century before I got this great gig that I have now.”

Judge Judy went on to say that she and her husband, Jerry Sheindlin, who is also a judge, both obtained concealed carry permits in the past.  

“There was a time when both Jerry and I had carry licenses and carried guns,” she explained.  “He actually carried a gun before I did… I always felt a little bit safer when I was walking in the streets with Jerry, it was late at night, we were walking home, that he was carrying a gun.”  

This cuts against remarks Bloomberg made in the aftermath of the attack at the Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas last month, during which an armed parishioner shot and killed a gunman after he had murdered two churchgoers.  

Authorities believe the perpetrator would have continued taking innocent lives had it not been for the armed parishioner and the security personnel that backed him up.  Following the incident, Bloomberg criticized the notion that armed citizens can stop killers in the act and save lives.  

“It’s the job of law enforcement to carry guns that kill,” declared Bloomberg. “We just can’t let the average American have guns in a crowded place…gun control saves lives…”

Unfortunately, Judge Judy supports Bloomberg’s gun-banning agenda and believes there ought to be prohibitions on certain semiautomatic firearms and magazines of a specific capacity.  

She said, “You have a Second Amendment.  It’s never going to change…  [BUT] I personally don’t think anyone in this country needs a gun capable of shooting 100 rounds in sixty seconds.”

And then, toward the end of the segment, she really went off the rails when she described Bloomberg as “an honest” man. 

“Mike Bloomberg is an honest man,” said Judge Judy, making a face like she was choking on a cue ball (I kid you not, watch the video embedded above).  “And he’s always been for gun control.  But he’s not taking away people’s Second Amendment rights, I don’t think.  I’ve never heard him say that.”

Eek! Judge Judy needs to start reading GunsAmerica! If she did, she’d soon realize that her pal Mike is wholly dedicated to taking away the 2A rights of law-abiding citizens.

Anyway, Bloomberg is currently polling at 5.8 percent nationally, sitting in the fifth position behind Biden, Sanders, Warren, and Buttigieg, according to RealClearPolitics.

    Don’t see eye to eye? So what are Bloomberg’s redeeming qualities?

  • Smitty January 10, 2020, 11:32 pm

    What Jude Judy fails to admit to here is what the Framers intent of the 2nd Amendment was. Self defense from a tyrannical government and if that government has a weapon that has a cyclical rate of 100 rounds per minute then the citizen should have the same access to that weapon to defend themselves from said government. We cannot get around “Shall Not Be Infringed” no matter how intellectual we want to pretend to be. They invoked wisdom when they wrote this and with great purpose in mind. To keep ANYONE for ALL TIME from being able to change it without going through the herculean task of amending the Constitution.
    Just another moderate liberal trying to tiptoe through the tulips. IMHO (besides this was on the View for Christ sakes what did you expect?)

    i never liked this arrogant POS and she proved me right this week backing that cocksucker bloomberg! she can put any spin on it how she wants,if she wanted to back that asshole she should have kept her pie hole shut and did it,not aggravate everyone with he bullshit lies.

  • Area52 January 10, 2020, 4:09 pm

    Her goal in this interview was to soften Bloomberg anti gun stance with thought that she has a carry license and carries a gun and she supports Bloomberg so Bloomberg isn’t a bad guy. Then she shows her true colors by saying that semi autos and “Specific “magazines should be banned.
    If Bloomberg ever got elected she will always have a carry license/permit. Unfortunately the average person will not. I don’t care if it is Judge Jughead or britney Spears ; celebrities’ opinions are no better than my own.

  • GomeznSA January 10, 2020, 12:34 pm

    What she – and ALL the others who would disarm Law Abiding Citizens – flatly refuse to understand is that if they get their way, the bad guys won’t need guns – they will be able to use brute force against those of us who are weaker. THAT is more than enough reason for us to remain armed. End of discussion.

      AMEN! The older I get, and the more my body succumbs to the process of nature, the more that I realize just how important it is that we have our 2nd Amendment Rights. As a Christian I loathe violence, but as a man, as a husband, as a father, as a grandfather, as a U.S. Army Gulf War veteran, as a former LEO, and as simply just trying to be “a good neighbor”, I have had to do what ever it took to protect the helpless, defend Liberty, and protect myself, and by the grace of GOD, I will continue to do so. Just one good old fashion personal and up close encounter with a genuine “hard-case”, and these political bookworm libtard idiots would radically change their tune! I cannot stress it enough that we all must do ALL that we possibly can do to keep these sycophant FOOLHARDY gun-grabbing demotards from getting into power. That will mean praying earnestly for our leaders, sacrificing for the RIGHT causes, spreading the word INTELIGENTLY, being pro-active, and getting out to the poles. Don’t just sit there and complain about these worthless idiots, get out there and work to putting them OUT OF WORK! But beware-> “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” Proverbs 14:34, & “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7.

      What many people fail to understand about the 2nd Amendment is the primary reason for it. The primary reason for the 2nd Amendment is not self defense though that is a part of it. The main reason the 2nd Amendment was created was for resistance against a tyrannical government.

      You may not need over twenty-five rounds in a firearm for self defense but you very likely would if you were in a revolution against tyrants.

      I believe in the governent checks against power and in resisting tyrants with the soap box, ballot box, jury box and gun magazine box in that order.

      • Tony P. January 12, 2020, 1:29 am

        Well said. And you are exactly right, resistance to tyranny was the primary motivation for the founding fathers to write and add the 2nd Amendment to The Constitution. But let us also be realistic: for starters, the founding fathers were not dealing with the level of crime and personal violence that we are dealing with today; secondly, they wrote The Constitution and those amendments on the heals of The Revolutionary War against English tyranny. To be further realistic, neither you, nor I, nor anyone else, either by individual or group effort is going to effectually stand against and overthrow the powers that be, The Government Of The United States Of America. Many other people in many other countries do not enjoy the prosperity and liberty that we do here in The U.S.A. With that in mind, we ought to be all the more grateful, aware, cautious, and vigilant against foolish braggadocio, as well liberal anti-2nd Amendment gun-grabbing. Let us all do our part to make our society safe as well as polite. And it behooves us to be mindful that any liberty we do have we are granted by The Mercy Of God to use for good, and not for self-service; “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.” Galatians 5:13.

      First. Where does Judge Judy reside? NYC? Is she an elite class different than other citizens to get a concealed carry permit or to even own one? Second. ” … shall not be infringed.” means what it says. It doesn’t seem she is as educated as others portray.

      • Tony P. January 16, 2020, 1:52 am

        I am from New York City, Da’ Bronx to be exact, N.Y. And you are completely right! The privileged idiots, who have armed guards protecting them, do not give a rat’s @$$ for the common man’s safety! NYC is a communistic state, and demoncrat stronghold to the hilt! Any kind of weapon at all that you can carry is considered illegal. That is if you are a law abiding citizen ready and willing to be a sheeple victim. I got out, by the grace of God, twenty-two years ago. And sadly enough the police there are conditioned to believe that no citizen has the right to carry a firearm, much less to defend one’s self, (and I should know, I was an APO) unless a person can prove that they carry/transport either money or property in value of $10,000 or more regularly. You have to get a special permit just to buy a gun, and then it has to be secured in an accredited and certified firearm facility. The nearest one is in Yonkers NY. About twenty-five years ago a friend of mine from Queens went through the whole expense over $700.00 and process over 6 months long just to get a S&W revolver, which had to be registered at 1 Police Plaza as well as with his local precinct. And then left at the gun range for a substantial fee & mandatory membership! Getting the house permit was just as difficult and added more expenses. Forget about a personal carry permit! And these libtards wonder why we are so vehement about our 2nd Amendment Rights. It seems that they are determined to victimize their entire citizenry. Let us not yield to them, keep that BOZO Bloomberg out of The White House! FIDELIS AD MORTEM

        P.S; Judge Judy is just another poser libtard gun gabbing demoncrat herself! Do not be fooled by her half-arsed comments about once having a carry permit, all officers of the court are granted permits. she’s just another liar with a little less functional gray matter than Bozoberg. And oh yeah, FIDELIS AD MORTEM!

  • Michael R Stuhr January 10, 2020, 10:37 am

    Well Judy isn’t running for president. Michael Bloomberg is and he is no tour friend by any stretch of the imagination.
    A vote for any of the Democrats running is a vote supporting what is happening in Virginia at a national level.

    • Area52 January 10, 2020, 4:10 pm

      Agreed. Any democrat, yes even Tulsi is anti second amendment and want a New Zealand gun ban.

    • Smitty January 10, 2020, 11:37 pm

      And I’m ashamed of Judge Judy for saying she doesn’t think Bloomberg is trying to take away ALL GUNS.
      He’s funding the stuff that is going on in Virginia.

  • Roy Murphy January 10, 2020, 10:19 am

    We the People don’t need the Blooming Idiot in politics anywhere in the USA. W already have too many in State positions as “Tyrannic Queens” pushing forth their 2A destruction agenda – Govs in NJ, NY, CA, VA, CT just to name a few.

  • Chuck Matson January 10, 2020, 10:13 am

    Yep, she`s a dingbat.

  • Shawn McCarver January 10, 2020, 8:49 am

    Damage control. She can spin it all she wants. She now realizes that her choice to support the whacko Bloomberg doesn’t work with her fans, and that it might affect her bottom line. And, she can’t have it both ways. The 2A applies to the very type of gun she says we don’t need. Part of the elite, I guess she has no idea how hard it is for an ordinary married couple to get CCW permits in NYC.

  • srsquidizen January 10, 2020, 8:13 am

    If a rich totalitarian control freak like Soda Cup Mike has even a prayer of getting elected POTUS there needs to be a great big “FOR SALE” sign permanently posted on the lawn of the White House.

  • ItMatters2020 January 10, 2020, 8:04 am

    It does not matter if you are not a surrogate or have different beliefs than the guy you are supporting. If Bloomberg, or one of his ilk, gets elected, you will see massive attempts by the government to disarm law abiding citizens. Virginia is proving that out now.

  • JMichael270 January 10, 2020, 6:08 am

    We have seen how Michael Bloomberg has given millions upon millions to effectiveLy buy politicians to support anti gun legislation, as is seen in Virginia with his organization Everytown, and Judge Judy gave her support to Michael Bloomberg. Did she sell out the First and Second Amendment by supporting this overbearing charlatan that is wanting to help turn America into a socialist state?

  • Jay January 10, 2020, 5:31 am

    One of the major problems in America today is the Judicial branch of government. They have acted and gotten away with being the top of the food chain instead of being a part of the legislative and executive branch checking each other! Problem is the US, from the president on down, has been brain washed to bevel it so and nothing gets done because of all the liberal lefty judges stopping any thing they don’t like when they do not have the power to do so! Looks like old Judy is one of the many that can’t read and understand ,”Shall not be infringed” of the contract, a Constitution, that states very clearly at the very beginning and many times in the subject matter “We The People”

    • jay January 10, 2020, 5:33 am

      Damn spell check, bevel is suppose to be” believe!”

  • Retnavet January 10, 2020, 5:30 am

    Judy Sheindlin, = Ignorant, Counterfeit Celebrity….eff her with an infected tool

  • Michael January 10, 2020, 4:23 am

    2A with limitations. Yeah try that with all the other amendments first & see how that goes. Only a few blacks have rights not all. You can speak but you can’t. LMAO SHALL NOT INFRINGE.

  • SuperG January 8, 2020, 10:11 am

    Bloomberg is obviously in abject denial about armed citizens saving lives. The recent Texas shooting is just the latest example of how armed citizens save lives. I wonder how many more would have dies, had the armed parishioner just dialed 911 and waited for the cops to arrive?
