Kim Kardashian Talking Out Of Both Sides Of Her Mouth

While Kim Kardashian sometimes likes to talk a good game about the right to keep and bear arms, she always follows up such a statement with a new proposal to further restrict gun ownership.

And last week was no exception.

“I’m not against guns and I’m not against people owning guns,” the reality TV star said in a rambling, all-cap tweet where she bragged about having armed security. “All of my security team is armed, but they also support stricter gun control laws and believe that we should restrict access to firearms for people with mental illness, anyone previously convicted of a misdemeanor, those who have been subject to a temporary restraining order and those at a higher risk of committing gun violence.”

In case you missed it, Kardashian just called for making those convicted of misdemeanors prohibited persons for owning a firearm. As NRA-ILA pointed out in a weekend alert, individuals with convictions for the likes of shoplifting, trespassing and certain traffic offenses could be permanently barred from exercising a constitutional right under Kardashian’s plan.
