When in doubt about where to turn on gun control, why not look to a reality TV star whose claim to fame and fortune began with the release of a crude sex tape?
In a show of how bizarre politics have become, Kim Kardashian criticized the U.S. Senate on Tuesday for failing to pass gun control measures in the wake of the Orlando terrorist attack by a radicalized Muslim gunman.
Kardashian and her surgically altered body took to social media with this message: “The fact that anyone can so easily access guns is so scary & after all of the devastating loss the Senate should have not failed us!!!”
The fact that anyone can so easily access guns is so scary & after all of the devastating loss the Senate should have not failed us!!!

Kardashian, a big time supporter of Hillary Clinton, went on to spout Democratic Party talking points on gun control to help distract from yet another terrorist attack on U.S. soil under President Barack Obama, brought on by radical Islam.

The reality TV star was reacting to the Senate failing to pass a series of gun control measures on Monday, but this is not the first time Kardashian has advocated in favor of gun control.
Following the shooting in Charleston, S.C., that left nine African-American churchgoers dead, she said “we do not have strict enough gun control laws.”
Not that the fabulous wealthy, talent-less celebrity minds being surrounded by armed security, as social media users were only too happy to note:
@KimKardashian when you make your security guards give up guns then we can talk till then shut up with ur unintelligent tweets

@KimKardashian do you and your husband’s bodyguards have guns?

‘@KimKardashian The rest of us need protection from the rise of terrorism & criminals. You have hired guns. We buy guns for the same reason

Of course, this is coming from an attention-whore who complained last year about the media objectifying women — her porn tape notwithstanding.
“Sometimes the media exploited me but I don’t care, as long as I’m happy and I like the photographer then I don’t care,” she wrote.
And when Kardashian says she doesn’t care, you can take that to the bank.
