Kim Kardashian has really gone too far. Is she really as blind to the realities of the world as she appears? Yes. She has put out on her website that people like her own personal security should be armed with guns, but very few other people should get the same right.
She highlights people who have been convicted of a Misdemeanor (parking ticket, or dropping litter) as those who should not be allowed guns, and from there it just gets much worse.
She also says that “those at a higher risk of committing gun violence” should not be allowed weapons. Who does she mean? Do you think she is referring to the statistically higher gun crime figures in the Black community? Is she saying that Black folk should’t have guns? Or is it more likely that she is saying Conservatives shouldn’t be allowed guns?
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Kim Kardashian recently wrote that she wants strict gun control implemented on the American public, but wants to keep her armed security detail at the same time.
She wrote in part:
I’M NOT AGAINST GUNS AND I’M NOT AGAINST PEOPLE OWNING GUNS. AFTER WHAT HAPPENED TO ME IN PARIS, I KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO BE SAFE AND TO HAVE ARMED SECURITY. ALL OF MY SECURITY TEAM IS ARMED, BUT THEY ALSO SUPPORT STRICTER GUN CONTROL LAWS AND BELIEVE THAT WE SHOULD RESTRICT ACCESS TO FIREARMS FOR PEOPLE WITH MENTAL ILLNESS, ANYONE PREVIOUSLY CONVICTED OF A MISDEMEANOR, THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN SUBJECT TO A TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER AND THOSE AT A HIGHER RISK OF COMMITTING GUN VIOLENCE.
