Sending my prayers to everyone involved with the Empire State Building shooting! This violence has got to stop!!!

Once again, celebrities rushing to ghoulishly politicize a shooting on the backs of the dead and injured. Loved ones of victims of the Empire State Building shooting have likely not even all been informed yet, but that doesn’t stop ghoulish celebrities like Kim Kardashian from jumping in. Never let a tragedy go to waste, right?
Some Twitter users try to set the noted political expert straight.
@KimKardashian it's not the guns, it's the leadership. "who's gonna run this town tonight?" -thugs will always get their guns-legal or not!

@KimKardashian you think gun laws would stop these shootings? Making drugs illegal doesn't stop people from getting/doing them..

@KimKardashian Chicago & NYC have the strictest gun laws in the USA but they have the most gun violence because only criminals can get guns

By the way, what a classy statement from a leftist and writer for “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Sexist, much?
Kim is only following Mayor Bloomberg’s lead, of course.
