Kim Kardashian stepped Instagram first into the ongoing controversy surrounding gun control this week, posting a photo to that social network of a diamond-encrusted handgun.
It was quickly deleted, with a source telling E! News the publishing was some kind of "mistake" and "Kim hates guns."
And yet... she has one? A diamond-encrusted one that likely cost well into the five figures? Here's a look at the weapon/image in question:
On January 14, in response to the horrific Newton, Connecticut shooting, Kardashian Tweeted:
"Today, people in Newtown are making the #sandyhookpromise to reduce gun violence. Sign the pledge with me at at sandyhookpromise.org."
As you might expect, the posting sparked a debate on Twitter, with some followers calling out Kim as a hypocrite and others defending her Second Amendment rights.
And stress such as this is the last thing Kim needs. Her fetus, after all, is already in danger, thanks to Kris Humphries.
