Kim Kardashian has joined celebrities such as Tim McGraw, Selena Gomez, Matthew McConaughey, and Halle Berry in expressing their outrage over the latest mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas. Kim went on a Twitter rant, urging lawmakers to ‘control’ gun availability following the school massacre.
Kim Kardashian has recently spoken out about the May 24th school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. The reality star/lawyer-in-training didn’t hold back in expressing her anger on Twitter about the atrocity, which took the lives of 19 children and two adults so far. Kim recalls writing an essay about gun control five years ago, and she’s now “heartbroken, disgusted, and furious” that lawmakers have done “little” to address the issue.
“There is no excuse and no justification for what happened yesterday.
The current laws in our country around gun control are not protecting our children. We have to push lawmakers to enact laws that are fitting in today’s world.”
The Kardashians star added that assault weapons “should be banned, period,” pointing out that they didn’t exist when the Second Amendment was written. Kim also stated that the minimum legal age to purchase a weapon, which is currently 18, should be increased.
“There is no world in which an 18 year old needs a semi automatic weapon, or any weapon, and no world in which the outcome can be anything other than tragic.
As I even type these words I am seriously dumbfounded that this is something considered normal, acceptable and legal.
There is no question that mental health, racism, deep-seated hatred all play a role in the motivation for mass shootings in recent years. And at a community level, as parents, teachers, there is a lot that can be done to help teens and young adults that isn’t being done.”
Kim concluded her rant by urging “urging our leaders to come together and put politics aside and put children first.” She also uploaded a 2017 blog article in which she expressed similar thoughts regarding gun control and school safety.
This is a sad story and the 30th school shooting in the United States this year. Hopefully, something can be done about this situation as too many schools have faced this grim and tragic reality so far.
