Madonna Says Lack of Gun Control in US is a ‘Huge Problem’

In a recent interview with Reuters, music icon Madonna called the lack of gun control in America “frightening” and described it as a “huge problem.”

“When you think about the amount of people who have died, been killed, have been wounded, whose lives have been changed irrevocably because of the lack of gun control in America, it’s such a huge, huge problem,” the singer told Reuters. “It’s pretty frightening, yes, it’s pretty scary.”

Naturally, the 1980s pop idol and left-wing activist did not specify what type of new gun regulations she thought were needed. Nor did she note that there already exists a labyrinth of state and federal laws, including background checks that have applied to every retail firearm sale for over 20 years.

The mass shooters who have destroyed so many lives and made national headlines in recent years–nearly every one acquired his guns through such checks, not to mention waiting periods for buying firearms and other laws the singer is apparently unaware of. California has some of the strictest gun control laws, but they have not prevented mass shootings.

Pure Hypocrisy

But that’s not even the most ignorant part of what Madonna said.

How many anti-gun celebrities like Madonna walk around with armed security? How many anti-Second Amendment politicians do the same?

And why? Because they know there are dangerous people in this world intending to do them harm. They know they need armed protection.

But what about the average person? While celebrities and politicians are obviously often bigger targets due to their fame, non-famous citizens are also vulnerable and often need firearms to protect themselves and their families–necessary tools of defense out-of-touch entertainers like Madonna don’t want them to have.

Madonna newest album features a gun control anthem titled, “I Rise” that includes snippets of a gun control speech by Emma Gonzalez, one of the Parkland shooting survivors.

Gonzalez’s and even Madonna’s voice should be heard. But so that of millions of average Americans who cherish their Second Amendment rights, precisely because it allows them the armed protection so many rich liberals want to deny them.
