‘[bleeping] Idiot and Hypocrite’: Kim Kardashian Under Fire for Posting Pic of…Glitzy Handgun
The Blaze ^ | 2/6/13 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 02/07/2013 7:17:40 AM PST by Impala64ssa

Reality television star Kim Kardashian is drawing heavy fire for posting a photo of a jewel-encrusted handgun on Instagram just weeks after signing a pledge to reduce gun violence in honor of the Sandy Hook massacre.

“Today, people in Newtown are making the #sandyhookpromise to reduce gun violence. Sign the pledge with me at http://www.sandyhookpromise.org,” she wrote at the time.

But some are now conflating guns, with gun violence.

Hollywood gossip aficionado Perez Hilton wrote:

Now, Kim has been enjoying the shooting range for years now, and we’re sure she enjoys feeling like she can protect herself. But this was a clear example of a celebrity forgetting the height of their platform, and the social-impacting consequences that can come with it.

Kardashian has since removed the photo, but this isn’t the first time the reality star has posted a gun-related image.

A month before the Sandy Hook shootings, Kardashian apparently shared this picture of herself at a gun range on Twitter:

Kardashian, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West this summer, has not yet issued a public response to the controversy. But she’s no stranger to political controversy.

After tweeting that she was “praying for everyone in Israel” during conflict in the region in November, she was called a “disgrace” to her people and told that she is the reason at least one Twitter user wants “to die.”

Some, though, are standing up for Kardashian.

“Kim Kardashian posted a pic of a gun on Instagram & now everyone is all pissed off,” one person tweeted, according to ABC. “I forgot the 2nd amendment didn’t count for celebs.”

KEYWORDS: banglist; celebrityhypocrisy; guncontrol; secondamendment
Poor Perez Hilton got his panties in a wad over this. As trashy as the Kim Kardashian is, she certainly has a right to defend herself. At least her support for Israel shows she does have some redeeming qualities.

He’s just trying to get his butt kicked by a girl.
He’s shown he folds like tissue paper when socked out by a blindman.

Is it true that the word Armenian “kardashian” translates as “my mamma be a pimp.”?

Except she’s with Kanye, which tells you just about everything you need to know about her qualities.

Yup. Apparently Kris Humphries wasn’t a big enough douchebag.

Between them and Cher, it doesn't speak well for Armenians, I guess the Turks killed all the good ones off.

Being under the media spotlight 24/7? I just wonder who of us can even put this in perspective.

I'm sure some have in a smaller way but wholly crap what the Kardashians bought into is crazy.

Don’t bother. The only thing that separates her from Paris Hilton is that Kim isn’t built like an 11-year-old boy.

I have one of their basic models. My son-in-law carries his for deep concealment. No accidental discharges. It is single action and requires some effort to pull the hammer back. Nothing huge, but enough to keep it from firing on its own...

sigh...so posting a picture of a gun somehow mitigates her pledge to reduce gun violence? So the insinuation is that posting a pic of a gun (or probably owning one) makes a person part of the problem instead of the solution?

People in this country are such hyper-sensitive pansy-asses I can barely take it.

Did you see the South Park episode on the economy where Kyle saves the day? When the TV news did the story, Kyle assumed he would be honored but out-of-nowehere Obama was shown and the cheerleader-reporter in so many words said "We have one person to thank. Barack Obama."

Yup, you cut to the heart of the idiocracy. You can’t own a gun and be against gun violence...uh what? I abhor gun violence and yet I know that my best defense against it is not waving a law in front of someone’s face, but rather a shotgun or handgun and the will to use it.

I’m no Kardashian fan, but she has ever right to own a gun and defend herself, just like every other American.

If she’s here legally,hasn’t been convicted of a serious crime and isn’t mentally incompetent I have no problem with her owning a firearm.But it would appear as if *she* has a problem with *me* owning one.

HERE’S THE REAL STORY FOLKS

Follow the link below and go to the fourth picture down.

Yep, the absolute proof. This is who that idiot Zero went to for shooting lessons. Look at the evidence: empty vacant stare, point of the gun stock wedged firmly into the shoulder, complete surreal stupidity of the situation.....an exact match. The only difference I see - one HAS a bigger ass, one IS a bigger ass.

Kim seems to be a straight shooter by Hollywood standards.

I guess she can waste her money any way she likes. I would think the jewel’s would chafe a bit if she concealed her weapon commando style. At least she doesn’t have to worry about pinching her skin creating a blood blister when the slide slams shut.

Many mysterious bits in this posting.

For instance: What the hell is a "kardashian", and why would I care?

Another: Anything that contains a reference to the racist Kanye West is automatic grounds for rejection by my brain.

And is Perez Hilton a cousin of that other Hilton...the blond, stupid one, not the hotel...you know, the one that does home sex movies in the back seats of limousines?

And last...citing support for Israel as a redeeming quality of some broad with a big ass, who is supposedly famous just for being famous...does not compute.

A pox on the sick society of celebrity crap.

She’s famous for a sex tape.

She should be famous for making a sex tape that actually makes sex look boring as hell. I think her sex tape ought to be shown to all high school kids for sex ed because most of them will lose interest in sex after watching it. I've seen more passion between old people arguing over who left the top off of the denture cream tube.

But some are now conflating guns, with gun violence.

IMO, that's been the plan all along. In every news website that used "gun violence" as one word, I posted that it was a conscious plan of the liberals to create a Pavlovian response like that by constant repetition.

I also asked readers to search on that phrase and see how often it comes up, then do a similar search on "knife violence" - then gave them the current figures:
"gun violence" - 667,231 hits
"knife violence" - 716 hits
and just for grins:
"auto violence" - 368 hits
"bomb violence" - 263 hits (Muslim gene pool cleaning)

I then awarded them the the Josef Goebbels Excellence in Journalism award.
