Madonna (Really): 'Guns Don't Kill People, People Kill People'

Madonna (Really): 'Guns Don't Kill People, People Kill People' By Tom Blumer Created 06/22/2013 - 12:15pm

There's no word on whether Elizabeth Vargas had to receive smelling salts during her interview of Madonna which appeared on "Good Morning America." But it wouldn't be a surprise if she did.

When the ABC reporter, whose interview was relayed by the network's Sabrina Parise and posted at Yahoo.com, questioned the diva's use of gun choreography in her current tour's stage show, she certainly expected a robust defense. But she probably didn't expect a trip into the land of the Second Amendment. Nonetheless, that's what happened (bolds are mine):

... (the) choreography drew criticism with the first act of her tour relying heavily on the use of guns. Despite that criticism, Madonna says she never would have left that part out of her MDNA Tour documentary.

"That would be like asking people to not have guns in action movies," she said. "I mean the thing is, guns don't kill people, people kill people. That whole first section of the show is like an action movie, and I was playing a super vixen who wanted revenge."

Madonna even gave a statement that she does not condone violence, and that her work is art and nothing more.

"But I know there was several movies that delayed release because of the shootings, for example, at Sandy Hook Elementary school," Vargas said.

"Well that's not going to change the situation," Madonna replied. "This all comes from fear and ignorance, and people not really raising their children, or not paying attention to what's going on."

So far, the "guns don't kill people, people kill people" quote is still in the video at the link. It will be interesting to see if it survives long-term. Someone who's tech-savvy ought to figure out how to save the full interview in case it gets snipped.

Madonna's PC cachet is probably more than sufficient to survive the outrage which seems likely to follow, especially because of her vocal and edgy (i.e. profane) support of President Obama's reelection.

Or so she'd better hope.

Madonna may be a has-been, but she’s still from Jersey and despite her Obama infatuation may have moments of realism.

I thought the old whore was from Michigan. The hag's momentary lapse of common sense is purely accidental I'm sure.

It appears that her family still lives here. Her father owns a winery near Traverse City and her brother lives under a bridge there.

More and more people show up as more intelligent and more ethical than 99.99 % of the slimebubblers every single day.

One day, we’ll simply overrun them all.

Likely someone told her to get the attention of the celeb adoring sheep off Immigration/scandalpocalypse, lest they get...you know...ideas.SQUIRELL!!!

Then again, it could just be that her liberalism stops at her bank account and her show makes her money just as it is.

OK... maybe next time I’ll be a little more accepting of an elderly breast flash.

Thanks! I’ve revealed my ignorance of Madonna. But she was at least Italian American, right? (Or maybe not...)

Her dad owns a winery in MI?

Very true.And my understanding is that in recent years "Madonna" has spent most of her time there.I'm sure she's also aware of the fact that both George Harrison *and* the Queen have had unwelcome guests in their very own homes.That,I'm sure,would make her want to have armed security around her 24/7

And anyone who watches Prime Minister's Question Time from London knows that the big push by leftists these days in Parliament has been for *knife* control.I kid you not.

Though I don’t think she has any real discernible talent, I have always said she was the hardest working person in showbusiness and never begrudged her hard earned success.

This is all because of some tour.
Grandma GaGa is just whoring for publicity and relevance again,

Seriously? She's worth billions and her own flesh and blood lives under a bridge? In the ER where I worked for years we had a "frequent flyer" who was a long time,serious,schizophrenic.He came from money and his father would write him a check,each day,to buy day-to-day necessities.He was always clean,well fed but never has an excess of money because it was doled out to him little by little.I'm sure Madonna (and Osama Obama) could do the same kind of thing for their kin.If they had a heart.

Isn't it enough that you impugned the state of New Jersey -- now it's Italian-Americans??

NO PIZZA FOR YOU!

Reminds me - has Obozo signed the UN Small Arms treaty yet? Or has his office been too busy trying to surrender to Atzlan.

I worked in a situation where we had a chronic alcoholic, named “Arthur” for purposes of convenience, from a very wealthy and important family. Like most of them, Arthur was self-medicating and obviously had other problems, but NY had halted involuntarily commitments so we could never get him into a safe situation. His brother gave him lots of money and even came to see him, but Arthur would never even consent to see his brother and would not go into treatment.

Arthur could be very charming and witty and actually very dignified. He was better drunk than sober, so he was probably bipolar.

He died when he got run over after collapsing in the gutter on the Bowery. The person who ran over him probably didn’t even know it.

So there’s only so much the family can do, given the strange situation of mental health care.

>> Madonna’s PC cachet

Not familiar with it, but good on the material girl for stating the obvious truth. Hopefully, she won’t walk it back.

While I appreciate that even an addled brain like hers has freak moments of lucidity, they’re so unpredictable as to be useless. The day gun owners need the support of Madonna is the day I take up archery.

Madonna is from suburb of Detroit Michigan and never lived in New Jersey.

She had the biggest grossing tour ever just last year. She’s someone that will never be a has been because of her legacy.
Madonna is definitely annoying though.

Madge, and the family, have tried to help the brother many times. It just never 'takes' and he crawls back to his life of destitution. They've tried. Pretty sad story...but that's what can happen in families.
