Kim Kardashian Tweets Surprisingly Insightful Comments on Orlando Shooting

by at .

As you've no doubt heard by now, the nation was once again rocked by an act of senseless gun violence over the weekend.

The unthinkable tragedy at Orlando nightclub Pulse has been declared the worst mass shooting in US history.

Not surprisingly, hundreds of famous figures sounded off on social media in the hours after the extent of the bloodshed became clear. 

Most offered prayers and support.

Some revealed the ways in which they were touched by the tragedy on a personal level.

Still others offered real solutions to the escalating problem of gun violence and rampant mass shootings in America.

Somewhat surprisingly, Kim Kardashian was among those calling for change in a specific, actionable way:

"Under current federal law people on terror watch lists can legally buy guns – this is called the Terror Gap," Kim tweeted yesterday.

"We have repeatedly called on Congress to close this loophole that makes it easy for dangerous people to get guns & kill.

"Nothing has changed!!!! People continue to senselessly die. When will these gun laws be changed?!?!?!?!!!!?????"

Yes, while Donald Trump was patting himself on the back for being correctly predicting the deaths of 53 innocent people, Kim Kardashian - Kim freaking Kardashian - was on Twitter proposing legislation that might prevent another catastrophic event on par with the Pulse shooting.

Regardless of one's stance on gun control, surely everyone can agree that people who are considered such a threat to others that they're not allowed on airplanes probably shouldn't be allowed to purchase firearms.

Maybe that Kanye West presidential run isn't such a crazy idea, after all.

Sounds like Kim would make one hell of a first lady. Here's hoping for nude selfies from the Lincoln Bedroom in 2020!
