Gun control advocates are only for restricting other people’s right to own firearms. When it comes to their own safety and security, they’re not going to risk it. They’re going to either surround themselves with armed security, or arm themselves. And they’ll do it while they preach about the necessity of stringent gun control laws.
Kim Kardashian got robbed while she was in Paris, France. Apparently the thieves stole millions of dollars worth of her jewelry, including a ring that was reportedly worth $4 million.
The thieves held a bound and gagged Kardashian at gunpoint while they stole her valuables.
Even though Kardashian is a staunch gun control proponent, she decided not to risk losing her life anymore. She met with ex-CIA agents, former Israeli Army special forces members, and ex-Secret Service agents after her robbery. She now surrounds herself with several armed guards. From Breitbart:
On June 12, the day an attacker shot and killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Kardashian suggested the US needs stronger laws to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists. She tweeted: “Under current federal law people on terror watch lists can legally buy guns – this is called the Terror Gap.” But Kardashian apparently missed the fact that the Orlando attacker was not on a terror watch list; therefore, including the terror watch list in background checks would not have hindered, much less prevented, the Orlando attack.
As recently as August 5, 2016, Kardashian and her sisters Kourtney and Khloe met with family members of gun violence victims at an event organized by the Michael Bloomberg-funded Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety. Two months later, Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint while in Paris, a city with gun control that exceeds the laws Kardashian has advocated for in the United States.
The laws that Kim Kardashian is allegedly in favor of did not stop the terrorist attacks that have taken place in the U.S. and in France. Twelve people were murdered at the Charlie Hebdo office in January of last year. Over 130 people were murdered in Paris in November of last year. Both of those terrorist attacks involved the use of firearms, in spite of the fact that France has far stricter gun laws than the U.S.
I think this is a case where Kim Kardashian – like Hillary Clinton – has a “private” position and a “public” position.
