MIKE: Before we close out the hour though, Kim Kardashian -- yesterday, day before yesterday, we talked about the Orlando shooting. Then the day after the Orlando shooting, when it came out that it wasn't a terrorist attack, that it was a disgruntled employee, a former member of the military, had been arrested on some misdemeanor charges, and had had a fistfight with a coworker, was fired from his job. Returned to his old place of business. Shot five people. Dead. Then turned the gun on himself.
And, of course, what happened? The gun control people came out of the woodwork like they always do. Well, here you go. Kim Kardashian. Despite admitting that her entire security team is armed, reality television personality Kim Kardashian called for stricter gun control.
So here's the comment that I loved yesterday. I told you there is nothing more insulting than saying that people that are defenders of the Second Amendment care more about guns than they do people, leave it to Kim Kardashian. It's more important to protect the Second Amendment than to protect our own children.
No. The Second Amendment protects them too.
Kardashian went on to explain that better gun control looks like this to her: I believe that we should restrict access to firearms for people with mental illness.
Always happens already.
Anyone previously convicted of a misdemeanor.
So if you're convicted of trespassing, they should take your gun away? I'm asking.
If you get convicted of a misdemeanor, the government should be able to take your firearm? Those who have been subject to a temporary restraining order and those at a higher risk of committing gun violence.
There are already laws that do that. We have laws against felons possessing guns. How many times have murders been carried out by a felon with a handgun or a rifle? How many?
Well, shocking that the very same people that don't care about the laws against murder, don't care about the laws against carrying a gun either. It's a ludicrous premise. But the fact that Kim Kardashian pens the letter and anyone pays attention to it shows you that this is about popularity, not about policy, and not about what makes common sense.
Anybody like myself that says I am an adamant defender of the Second Amendment, you are labeled some kind of an extremist. Well, there's your extremist. Here is a woman that is surrounded by 24-hour a day armed protection. Why? Because she's a target. She is a target, as a celebrity.
So what do you do to protect yourself? You put armed people around you. You know what, I don't have the luxury of surrounding myself by armed people. It's -- it's such a hypocritical premise, that someone wouldn't say to her, get rid of your armed guards then. If you don't people should have guns, she thinks it's ridiculous that she would go out unprotected. It's absolutely -- it really is absolutely a joke.
