Female Harvard Student Attacked for Having Gun
Article from The Daily Wire by Hank Berrien.
A female Harvard University graduate student who had a MAGA hat and legally-owned guns in her room was asked by her apartment owner to move out after her roommates reportedly searched through her room and found the guns.
Pirnie commented to the Beacon, “What I find uncomfortable is coming home to find out that six people I barely know went into my bedroom without permission and went through every single one of my drawers, without any regard to my privacy whatsoever. My landlord’s e-mail, though carefully crafted, showed tremendous prejudice against my right to legally have firearms.” She explained that she had told her roommates that one reason for her owning firearms was that she had been in a physically abusive relationship. She said, “Nobody has bothered to question, ‘Well, why do you want to have protection? Could it be because you’ve experienced something where you need to protect yourself as you see fit?’ I have a real and legitimate reason as to why I want to protect myself.”
According to the Beacon, “When Pirnie and her father rejected Lewis’s request that she move out in the middle of studying for finals, Lewis responded by saying his request ‘was based strictly on practical and not idealogical (sic) terms.’ He then warned that if the other roommates moved out Pirnie would have to pay their rent.”
Lewis emailed Pirnie and her father, “If the other roommates were to move out, Leyla would need to find roommates to share the place or foot the entire $6000+ monthly rent herself. Obviously it would be much easier for the others to stay and just fill one room (and I’m confident—were this to happen—that the remaining housemates will release Leyla from any further responsibility under the lease) and that’s why I proposed what I did.”
