Quote of the Day: Even a Stopped Clock Edition by Dan Zimmerman | Jun 27, 2013 | 25 comments facebook twitter linkedin email “Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.” – Madonna [h/t David B.] comments Gabriel Martin says: June 27, 2013 at 08:25 Doesn’t surprise me, she said she was assaulted before. That tends to make people reevaluate their views on self-defense. Reply Nazgul says: June 27, 2013 at 08:30 Since when did America become a nation full of pansies that whine about an entertainer performing with a prop gun? Reply Rambeast says: June 27, 2013 at 08:53 When the progressives took over the schools and pumped the current generations full of emotional PC BS. Reply mp504 says: June 27, 2013 at 08:31 She must not have taken her drugs when she said that. Reply Pascal says: June 27, 2013 at 10:57 Nope, she has been attacked over and over on her gun props she has been using on stage at her concerts. She has also had a few intruders in the US and in her home in the UK including one home invasion. If you watch the video, she even says that people are ignorant on the issue of guns and people don’t get it. Reply Chris Hazelton says: June 27, 2013 at 09:00 The short of it is, she came out on our side. Let’s take that as a win and not give her any crap about it. Reply Rick F. says: June 27, 2013 at 12:43 ^^^^This. I thought she was right-on, and didn’t expect that, at all. Reply William Burke says: June 27, 2013 at 18:57 Yeah. Don’t act like schmucks about it. She did you a favor. She did us a favor. Enough with the catty stuff. I said “catty”!! Reply Andy says: June 27, 2013 at 09:23 She has always been outspoken,and doesn’t give one iota what someone thinks about how she feels.I just wish we had more entertainers that felt the way she does.Be prepared and ready.Keep your powder dry. Reply dwb says: June 27, 2013 at 09:28 i like the part right after- pay attention to what your kids are doing. i think she looks great. Reply In Memphis says: June 27, 2013 at 09:42 I have to be honest, I can care less what celebrities think. I honestly never understood why anyone does. Im not sayimg Im better than anyone who listens to these people, its just how I feel. Anyways, is Madonna even relevant anymore? Reply JPD says: June 27, 2013 at 10:43 Uh, yeah! Take a look at her tour numbers and dollars. In that she has transcended three decades. Relevant? ABSOLUTELY. Whether you personally find important or not, millions of her fans, worldwide DO. Whether they are young, old, low information or not, her opinions will carry more weight than most politicians. Our personal opinions of her personally of professionally really does not enter the discussion. What is important that her support of gun rights is HUGE. Reply In Memphis says: June 27, 2013 at 11:29 Dont get me wrong, I am happy for ANYONE who supports gun rights. I guess its a bonus when it is a celebrity because people around the world know them. I just dont get why people are so obsessed with a celebritys opinions and personal life. Even endorsements, I really dont get thoes. People line up and almost get robbed for a $200 pair of sneakers because a basket ball players name is attatched to them? Reply TJ says: June 27, 2013 at 18:45 I’ll be honest…there are lots of things I could care less about. I mean…I care about things..so, I guess I can care less. If i didn’t care at all, then I suppose that I couldn’t care less, but I do…so, I can. Reply Gtfoxy says: June 27, 2013 at 09:52 Smartest thing I have ever heard come from her mouth. I’m actually proud of her for saying it. Reply Labman says: June 27, 2013 at 11:19 I’m not a big fan of her music but she’s got the gun thing right and I commend her for having the moxie to say it out loud. With that attitude, she can be my guest at the range any day. Reply Accur81 says: June 27, 2013 at 11:57 You can tell that the PC interviewer wants to call Madonna’s gun use into question, but clearly doesn’t have the guts to do so. Madonna works hard, and I repect her opinion on this one. Heck, I even like some of her olde school music. Reply Ralph says: June 27, 2013 at 12:23 No matter how smart she is, she still looks scary. Reply William Burke says: June 27, 2013 at 18:59 Will somebody please hold Ralph’s hand? Reply tdiinva says: June 27, 2013 at 20:50 He may be wise to fear her. There was picture of her leaving a “toy store” with her husband in tow with a device known as a “strapon” clearly visible. That should scare anyone except for those who are in to that sort of thing. Reply sbk510 says: June 27, 2013 at 12:44 God bless, she’s ugly. Reply Leo338 says: June 27, 2013 at 15:25 Guns have played a major role in her life and at least she acknowledges it, unlike most other celebs. A gun protected her from a psycho stalker when she lived in CA. He was shot in her backyard as he attempted to break into her house. Reply William Burke says: June 27, 2013 at 19:03 She countered criticism of the guns in her show by saying “the show is like an action movie” (valid enough). And I thought, “Yeah! A GUY RITCHIE movie!” I really appreciate her speaking out like this. We need every friend we can get. I know she was speaking out for herself, but I still appreciate it. Reply Pariah76 says: June 27, 2013 at 16:16 I think we need to actually come up with an approved/improved method for POTG conversion. Example 1: An international celebrity entertainer as big as the sky comes out on the right side of liberty. Promptly POTG slam said entertainer. Don’t stare a gift horse in the mouth. Example 2: LGBT seems to be wanting to be a part of this group and demonstrate their desire to defend 2A freedoms. Promptly the POTG go to their websites and start off by saying dumb stuff like “I don’t agree with your personal choices at all, they conflict with what I believe to be moral, but you should be part of us…..” That isn’t how to garner support from an unlikely ally… Don’t do dumb things. Reply GS650G says: June 28, 2013 at 00:12 She is originally from Detroit so she has some idea what a bad neighborhood looks like and how it feels to be afraid. Madge isn’t anyone’s role model but to still be performing after 30 shows her mettle. Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
