This is how Kim Kardashian reacted to her sisters wanting to buy a gun
Despite all the time she spends in the limelight, there's still a ton of stuff we don't know about Kim Kardashian. Sure, we have a good idea of what sort of brands she likes and, yes, there are probably a lot of people out there who could tell you her measurements, but what do we really know about her other than what's on the surface?
Did you know, for instance, that she considers Jennifer Lopez to be her number one idol? Or that her favorite junk food is deep fried Oreos? Or that her favorite film is The Notebook? Honestly, neither did I until I just googled it.
Unsurprisingly, then, I was also unaware of the reality star's stance on gun control - or whether she actually had much of an opinion on the matter at all. However, it turns out that I had underestimated Kim K, as she's actually pretty outspoken on the issue.
In June of this year, Kim wrote a detailed blog post about her support for Everytown, which describes itself as "a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities".
She says in the post that she is "not against guns", nor is she "against people owning guns". However, she does believe that "we should restrict access to firearms" for certain people.
Because of this, Kim was understandably a little shocked to hear that her sisters, Khloe and Kendall, were considering buying a gun. In a clip from Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloe explains that they got onto the topic because "Kendall feels unsafe [because] she has literally a different stalker outside the front of her house every few days".
But Kim interjects and says quite bluntly, "That's what you have security for."
Khloe goes on to say, perhaps quite rightly, that she wants to gain a little more knowledge about handling a gun just in case she ever has to protect herself. She references Kim's robbery ordeal and asks if things would have been any different if she had been able to somehow get a gun from one of her attackers.
But Kim says that nothing would have changed because she was still hugely outnumbered. And then she brings up an even more important point.
"I wouldn't want my kids around it. I wouldn't want sleepovers going on here with the kids here while I know there's a gun," she said. "I personally don't feel comfortable with that. I just... I don't."
As a mother, Kim's priorities are obviously her kids and, seeing as it transpired recently that more people are killed every year in the US by armed toddlers than terrorists, her concerns are not unfounded. Her conversation with Kendall and Khloe was not necessarily a forceful one, but it seemed to make them reconsider their choices about owning a firearm.
So, no matter what you think about the Kardashians, you have to admit that, sometimes, there's much more to them than meets the eye - and listening to them every once in a while might end up changing your opinion on something.
