Kim Kardashian has done a public 180 degree turn on gun control after becoming the victim of armed robbery thanks to France’s ultra-strict gun control laws. Early on the morning of Monday October 3rd the reality TV star and wife of Rapper Kayne West was robbed at gunpoint at her flat in Paris. The robbers tied Kardashian up and made off with over $10 million worth of jewelry. The event was enough to inspire the historically anti-Second Amendment superstar to hire armed security guards to protect her at all times. Kardashian is normally surrounded by at least one armed guard but was prevented by doing so because of France’s laws.
Her actions have spoken louder than her words for some time, but that hasn’t stopped her for advocating for stricter gun laws.
Shortly following the robbery Kardashian immediately increased the number of armed guards protecting her by hiring former secret service agents that will be “armed to the teeth” to accompany her whenever she is in public. Kardashian has historically been an outspoken proponent of limiting a citizens Second Amendment rights. In 2015 she took to social media to call for stricter background checks that would prevent law-abiding citizens from obtaining firearms in a misguided attempt to disarm criminals.
Her anti-Second Amendment rant occured after David Conley, a deranged love-sick father of six, murdered 6 children and their mother. Kardashian blamed the Second Amendment rather than the individual carrying out the atrocity.
Kardashian is relying on her Second Amendment rights to protect herself and her family now more than ever. The NRA noticed the discrepancy between her anti-Second Amendment rhetoric and pro-Second Amendment actions and took the opportunity to remind her of the error of her ways. The NRA tweeted the following messages at the starlet:
It’s safe to say that Kardashian has seen the error of her ways and now realizes how essential the Second Amendment is for personal safety and security. Unfortunately for her, this lesson comes with a 10 million dollar price tag.
