Madonna is preaching to her nearly 16 million Instagram followers about the need for mandatory gun control which, in an accompanying video, she describes as the new vaccine.
In a separate IG post in which she lamented the police-involved shootings of Adam Toledo and Daunte Wright, the artist formerly known as the queen of pop, 62, demanded immediate jail time without a trial for cops who harm innocent children. She also floated the idea of an outright gun ban, which would run counter to Second Amendment rights.
The short video embedded below shows Madonna wearing a blue ski mask in part of the footage, pasting up signs containing the hashtags #WakeUpAmerica and #GunControlNow at an unidentified location in what looks like a staged bit.
At the end, she offers the following insight:
“Have you heard of this new vaccination for America? It’s going to keep us all alive, it’s going to keep us all safe. It’s called gun control, okay? It’s called gun safety, alright? New vaccination. It should be mandatory for all citizens.”

In a separate post, Madonna paternalistically appears to support a ban on gun ownership altogether, even while admitting that individuals bear responsibility for wrongdoing. She then added her call for summarily jailing cops accused of misconduct.
“Yes–people kill people, not guns. But the vast majority of people are not enlightened and guns are too easy to own. If they were outlawed then no one would feel the need to own a gun to protect themselves from those who have guns.
“As for Police killing innocent children. Shooting and suffocating and brutalizing innocent people…They should go immediately to jail for the rest of there lives. No trial, no corrupt justice system.”

An earlier pro-gun control post on Madonna’s IG account contained a gif depicting her face behind glass shattered by a bullet. When an IG user implied that Madonna was a hypocrite because she probably has bodyguards, Madonna fired back, as it were.
““B***h I don’t have any security or armed guards around me. Come see me and tell me to my face how not real my world is. I dare you….” In the same exchange, she referred to the police as criminals.

At this stage of her career, Madonna may not need security. However, many of the most vocal pro-gun control, high-profile liberal celebrities usually travel with bodyguards whether they are armed or not and live in mansions surrounded by high walls and video security.
Moreover, in general, as many gun rights advocates have insisted, only law-abiding citizens comply with gun control measures. Violent criminals usually find ways to circumvent whatever system that might be in place.
Back in January 2017 while speaking at the Women’s March, Madonna told the crowd that she had “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” She subsequently claimed her comment was made metaphorically and was taken out of context and that she isn’t a violent person.
