Two DNC Performers Who Hate The Second Amendment

While performing a late-night mini-concert for delegates in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention, pop singer Kesha revealed what many at the convention likely believe about gun control—even though they often try to hide behind more politically correct wording.

Playing at an event sponsored by gun-ban advocate Gabby Giffords’ group Americans for Responsible Solutions, the singer said: “We as a nation, we can’t control who feels hurt, we can’t control who feels pain. You can’t control every single person and know how they’re going to deal with things and know if they’re going to pick up a weapon—you don’t know that. But what we can control is who we give the f---ing weapons to.”

Not to be outdone, singer-songwriter Alicia Keys, while performing for the crowd at the convention, couldn’t ply her trade without getting her two cents in on banning guns. “Until we deal with gun control in America, we cannot claim to be the home of the brave,” she said, rudely insulting every member of America’s armed forces, both past and present.
