Madonna: Defender of gun rights?

posted at 1:57 pm on June 21, 2013 by

Second look at the Material Girl?

But that choreography drew criticism with the first act of her tour relying heavily on the use of guns. Despite that criticism, Madonna says she never would have left that part out of her MDNA Tour documentary.

“That would be like asking people to not have guns in action movies,” she said. “I mean the thing is, guns don’t kill people, people kill people. That whole first section of the show is like an action movie, and I was playing a super vixen who wanted revenge.”

Madonna even gave a statement that she does not condone violence, and that her work is art and nothing more.

“But I know there was several movies that delayed release because of the shootings, for example, at Sandy Hook Elementary school,” Vargas said.

“Well that’s not going to change the situation,” Madonna replied. “This all comes from fear and ignorance, and people not really raising their children, or not paying attention to what’s going on.”

I’ve never been a Madonna fan — at all — but kudos to her for this common-sense statement.  And, er, good luck to her in dealing with her Hollywood friends about it, too.

About time she got some common sense. She’s what…75 or so now?

No, she is only 54. And, it appears that her children appear not to be screwed up, as I predicted they would become. She really nows how to market herself.

SC.Charlie on June 21, 2013 at 3:32 PM

I think she is still a bit screwed up. She still says Sean Penn was the love of her life. But, then none one is truly sane.

I do wish that HotAir would let us go back and edit something that we just posted.

Hotair is kind of like life. Our screw-ups follow us around forever.

time for the left to finally kill off madonna’s career in 3…2…1…

SC.Charlie on June 21, 2013 at 3:35 PM

Well, love can be quite blind, even for the 99% sane.
And there’s no accounting for taste.

Guess she doesn’t have a twitter page to lose half her followers like Katee Sackhoff…

You want to see gun imagery, go to a Miranda Lambert concert. A video of women with guns (mostly Hollywood characters through the years) opens her show–very transgressive in these times. I loved it. Bloomberg would spontaneously combust if he saw it.

Who are you, and what have you done with the real Madonna?

ZK on June 21, 2013 at 7:08 PM

Fun Fact: Madonna is now older than Blanche was for the first three seasons of Golden Girls.

vegconservative on June 22, 2013 at 12:04 AM

Madonna says something sensible? Truly, we are in the End Times.

So can we count on Madonna for an NRA membership?
