No matter one’s opinion on the Kardashian clan, we can all agree that being robbed at gunpoint by five masked men, with no way to defend yourself, is one of the most terrifying things someone can go through. That’s what happened to Kim Kardashian in Paris Sunday night.
As TMZ reported:
Armed gunmen broke into Kim Kardashian‘s Paris apartment, taped her mouth shut and stole more than $10 million in jewelry and the emergency rippled quickly all the way to New York … where Kanye bolted from the stage mid-concert.
There were 5 gunmen, posing as cops, who threatened the concierge and made him open the door to her room.
Our sources say at least 2 gunmen bound and gagged Kim with handcuffs and tape and then put her in the bathtub. We’re told Kim begged them to spare her life, telling them she had babies at home.
Conservative writer and mother Kira Davis commented at Red State:
It is unfortunate that Kim Kardashian had to learn the hard way that gun control laws only ever apply to those who obey the law in the first place.
I used to be staunchly anti-gun and I did not understand nor approve of the second amendment. Then my husband’s job took him away from our family for 4 months, and I was left in the middle of ghetto with a young son and a baby girl. I told my husband that although I’d promised myself I would never have a gun in my home, I didn’t feel comfortable having no way to defend our children if anything ever went down while he was away. Our street – besides just being in a city competitive on the per capita homicide charts – had also recently suffered a rash of frightening, violent home invasions. I needed a way to protect our family.
He told me if that’s what I wanted he would send me to safety classes and when I graduated I could buy a gun. That’s what I did. The process taught me to respect the power of a defensive tool and gave me a new appreciation for the second amendment. It was also one of the most empowering things I’ve ever done for myself. To this day, even when I am without a weapon within my reach, I feel more powerful, more capable and less vulnerable.
Mrs. West, may I suggest from this point on you buy a gun and learn how to defend yourself. Then carry that gun everywhere you can. If not for your own sake, for the sake of your babies.
Criminals don’t care if your hotel is a gun-free zone.
