Kim Kardashian Calls for Gun Control in Wake of Florida Shooting

by at .

Kim Kardashian has taken a break from stripping nearly all the way down to address the most pressing issue currently facing our country:

Gun control.

In the wake of 17 people being gunned down at a school in Florida on Wednesday, the reality star has chosen to use her social media platform for something worthwhile right now.

We're not saying photos such as THIS ONE are not worthwhile, of course.

But they are certainly meaningless in the wake of this horrific school shooting.

"We owe it to our children and our teachers to keep them safe while at school," Kim Tweeted last night, adding:

"Prayers won't do this: action will. Congress, please do your job and protect Americans from senseless gun violence."

The mother of three is reacting here to the way in which most politicians offer "thoughts and prayers" after a shooting of this nature.

But we didn't vote them into office to deliver hollow platitudes, Kim is arguing. We voted them into office to actually pass legislation.

On Wednesday afternoon, a 19-year old named Nikolas Cruz opened fire on students and staff members at  Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

He used an automatic rifle to end the lives of these 17 people, while injuring many others.

In the hours since this tragedy took place, a debate has once again arisen over whether new gun control measures ought to be put in place.

Along with her own message on the topic, Kardashian re-Tweeted a number of other points people made on Twitter in regard to this contentious issue.

To wit:

This actually isn't the first time Kardashian has pushed for gun control of some kind.

In November of 2016, she talked to Kendall Jenner about the issue, emphasizing how important it is for celebrities to get involved in various political debates.

Just consider the reach they have, she stated.

Watch the clip below: 

Just over a week since this scene was filmed, Kardashian slammed Congress about it failed to pass meaningful legislation.

"Nothing has changed!!!! People continue to senselessly die. When will these gun laws be changed?!?!?!?!!!!?????" she asked on Twitter at the time, adding:

"The fact that anyone can so easily access guns is so scary & after all of the devastating loss the Senate should have not failed us!!!"

We almost never say this about Kim Kardashian, but... we agree.

We agree completely with everything she is saying here.

In televised remarks from the White House Diplomatic Reception Room on Thursday morning, President Donald Trump said he was committed to making schools safe and to tackle the issue of "mental health" in America.

He did not say anything about gun control.

"I want to speak now directly to America's children, especially those who feel lost alone confused or even scared," he added.

"I want you to know that you are never alone, and you never will be.

"You have people who care about you, who love you and who will do anything at all to protect you.

"If you need help, turn to a teacher, a family member, a local police officer or a faith leader. Answer hate with love. Answer cruelty with kindness."

That sounds terrific in theory.

In practice, answering an automatic weapon with kindness will simply get you killed.
