Noted Strict Gun Law Advocate Kim Kardashian Ramps Up Armed Personal Security
The only person with more muscle protecting them is Obama!
Kim Kardashian has stepped up her security detail in the wake of her Paris robbery, and her new team is armed with both guns and experience! The reality star has added former members of the Secret Service to her detail, and she will never be without at least two armed men watching over her, TMZ reports. She will also be traveling in an armored vehicle.
Kim K and Kanye met with ex-CIA agents, Israeli army members, and owners of two top security firms to assemble a A+ team after the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was robbed at gunpoint, and the whole family - minus Rob - will be getting the same treatment. Kris Jenner is heavily involved in safety meetings, and will be putting men on Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie as well.
This is a TMZ report, which means it's still just a "report," but this is a recurring theme among the anti-gun elite. Those who have the biggest platforms to rail against the Second Amendment rights of regular Americans often have armed security of their own. There is an elitist presumption that their lives are worth more protection than ours. While it may seem that the rich and famous are more at risk, it is actually regular folks who are getting attacked far more. There aren't a lot of roaming ne'er-do-wells in Beverly Hills or Calabasas, after all.
Kim K doesn't deserve armed protection merely because she's Kim K. She deserves it because she is an American and we are (for now) all allowed to protect ourselves. A life isn't worth more because a bank account is worth more. When people began mocking her on social media after the robbery, her defenders were quick to (rightfully) point out that we should remember that she's a wife and mother.
Not all wives and mothers can afford an armed security detail, but they all deserve to be able to protect themselves.
The First Amendment gives Kim K the right to spout hysterical, hypocritical nonsense about guns, of course.
It would be nice if those who exercise their legal First Amendment rights were as responsible as those of us who do the same with the Second Amendment.
