The attack at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand has Kim Kardashian proposing that somebody do something about gun laws in the United States:
Just 24 hours after the Christchurch shooting New Zealand bans semiautomatic guns! 👏🏼
America take note! Why can’t our
elected officials put public safety over gun manufacturers’ profits?!?! https://t.co/nsufYNygoO

First off there were reality checks like these:
Well they don't have a 2nd amendment https://t.co/ksMIY4S6I4

It has nothing to do with "gun manufacturers’ profits." Owning firearms in the United States is a constitutionally protected right. https://t.co/pqSdLxDWni

And secondly, questions like this:
Starting with your armed security, right?

Others had similar thoughts about Kardashian’s latest foray into the topic of gun control:

At the end of the day, a lot of people just don’t like hearing that kind of rhetoric from the same people who are protected by the very things they would deny everybody else:

So you can have armed security for your family, but I can't have my own protection for my family?

Are you serious this coming from people that have armed security
— Jill selter (@jill_setler) March 16, 2019
@KimKardashian – you first. Give up your right to protection. No armed body guards. In fact, no body guards at all, since most Americans cannot afford them. No walls. No locks on your doors in any of your homes, cars, office, etc. Ignorance breeds ignorance! https://t.co/n096qFE7SW

. @KimKardashian who travels with armed security wants to ban guns.
Give up your armed security and the gates around your mansion.
