NRA-ILA | Rosie O’Donnell and Kim Kardashian West Aren’t Entirely Against Guns, Just You Having Them


NRA-ILA



In
the late 1990s and early 2000s no celebrity pushed gun control more
than comedienne and actress Rosie O’Donnell. Longtime NRA supporters
will remember the famous incident in 1999 where the arch-gun control
supporter ambushed actor and NRA Board Member Tom Selleck on her
now-defunct daytime talk show. O’Donnell was active with Handgun Control
Inc. (now the Brady Campaign) and the Million Mom March, and signed a
letter calling for the criminalization of private transfers of firearms,
handgun waiting periods, handgun rationing, and a ban on commonly-owned
semi-automatic firearms and their magazines.

Despite
the severity of these restrictions, the so-called “Queen of Nice”
explained that she would go even further during an interview with
anti-gun former-U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy. O’Donnell remarked,
“I know it's in the Constitution. But you know what? Enough! I would
like to say, I think there should be a law--and I know this is
extreme--that no one can have a gun in the U.S. If you have a gun, you
go to jail.” There was even an Associated Press report
that O’Donnell asked the cast of Broadway show “Annie Get Your Gun” to
alter the lyrics to “Anything You Can Do” to remove the line “I can
shoot a partridge with a single cartridge.”

However,
during her most active years as gun control crusader, O’Donnell
employed armed security guards. In 2000, the pro-gun community was quick
to point out her hypocrisy when it was reported that a bodyguard
O’Donnell employed to protect her son had applied for a concealed carry
permit and that the star approved. O’Donnell’s hypocrisy was so galling
that in 2001 a gun rights supporter instituted, and NRA republished, the
tongue-in-cheek “Rosie’” Awards, which were “bestowed upon the most
hypocritical enemies of the Second Amendment.”

Today, O’Donnell is still a vocal gun control supporter and still enjoys the protection firearms afford.

During a November appearance on The Howard Stern Show,
O’Donnell shared a personal story about her girlfriend, who is a police
officer in Worcester, Mass. According to the interview, the girlfriend
was staying over one night when the couple was awakened at 3 a.m. by the
home’s alarm system. O’Donnell bragged that her capable girlfriend
sprung up from bed, gun in hand, and went to investigate. O’Donnell told
Stern that her partner’s armed response was “the biggest turn-on I ever
had in my life.”

Back in June,
Kim Kardashian West took to her website to post an ignorant screed in
support of Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety and in
opposition to legislation supported by NRA and the ACLU
that protected those with disabilities from being improperly targeted
as persons prohibited from possessing firearms. Kardashian West is also a
member of Everytown’s celebrity outreach program, which the group calls
its “Creative Council.”

In a recently released clip from the latest season of “reality” TV program Keeping Up with the Kardashians,
Kardashian West challenges her sisters Kendall and Khloe when they
express an interest in firearm ownership for self-defense. While Khloe
was explaining how their interest in gun ownership was spurred by
Kendall’s concerns for her own safety, Kim interjected “Well that’s what
you have security for.” Continuing to tow the Everytown line,
Kardashian West went on to say that she would not permit her children to
sleep over at her sister’s house were there a gun in the home.

Having
grown up in the lap of luxury as the daughter of a high-profile
businessman and attorney who was also the heir to a meat-packing
fortune, Kardashian West has had little reason to concern herself with
the travails of ordinary Americans. The socialite might be surprised to
learn that the vast majority of her countrymen cannot retain a phalanx
of armed guards.

The
institutional gun control lobby has long used celebrity “influencers” in
an attempt to shape gun policy; to little effect. As members of the
same elitist clique, wealthy gun control advocates seem blind to the
fact that the “deplorable” masses see right past this sort of celebrity
moralizing to the underlying hypocrisy. The average American’s concerns
for their own safety and that of their family are no less important than
those of the rich and famous, and it should be obvious by now that no
volume of celebrity lectures will convince them otherwise.









LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE

Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
