In an interview with retired California judge LaDoris Cordell, reality star Kim Kardashian admitted to not really being “a gun person,” but she said we need more gun control in America.
Kardashian also spoke on race and on her support of Hillary Clinton for president.
According to Mail Online, Kardashian talked about the attack on the Charleston church by suggesting “stricter legislation to prevent mass shootings.” She did not address the reports that alleged gunman Dylann Roof passed a background check for his gun, thereby complying with all gun control requirements. Nor did she mention that Santa Barbara attacker Elliot Rodger complied with even stricter gun controls in California, whereby he not only passed a background check but also registered his guns with the state and used only 10-round magazines in carrying out his heinous act.
She said, “I’m not the type to have them (guns) in my house, they scare me so much.” She then framed gun control as something she would secure if she could “do something to change the world,” saying, “I’m not really a gun person, and we do not have strict enough gun control laws.”
Kardashian also focused on race and the way her late father impacted her. She said, “I think that when I was a teenager, my father knew or somehow put together that I was going to inevitably end up with a black guy and would make sure to tell me story after story about racial difficulties and how he always fought for the better.”
She responded to a question about whether Hillary can win in 2016 by saying, “I hope so!”
Kardashian then explained why she is a “feminist” and talked about how the media “objectifies” women.
