The Kardashians (and a Jenner) talk guns (courtesy youtube.com)

In the video below, scripted members of the Kardashian clan discuss guns and gun control. It starts out with Khloe giving Kendall Jenner solid advice about firearms selection . . .

She tells her half-sister to go to the gun range and try out a few guns before choosing one, looking for a pistol with the proper fit.

Note: if these young ladies weren’t multi-millionaire “it girls,” the chances of them getting a carry permit in LA County (where most of the filming is done) would be somewhere between slim and none. And slim’s left town. But they are, so…roll tape!

Just not on LA’s 16-hour “safety course.” I don’t think a single member of the clan could sit still for half that time (even without chemical assistance). Anyway, Kim Kardashian (yes, there are a lot of them) is anti-gun. In fact, she’s a spokesmodel for Everytown for Gun Safety. So when KK “happens” in on the girls talking about guns — surprise! — she intervenes.

Khloe justifies Kendall’s desire for a gun by pointing out that her model sister “literally has a different stalker outside her house every few days.” (Nice of them to rotate.) And “she’s a single girl who lives alone.” (I bet Kendall isn’t even alone in the bathroom.)

“That’s what you have security for,” Kim counters.

Despite the fact her sisters and the camera crew don’t burst laughing — or if they did it was deftly edited out — this has to be the funniest thing ever said on the series.

On October 13, 2016, a trio of firearms-wielding criminals waltzed into Kim’s hotel room and held the whatever-she-is at gunpoint while they ransacked her apartment. In France. (Another European “gun control” paradise.) Ms. Kardashian’s bodyguard was elsewhere at the time.

Khloe asks Kim if she’d have known what to do if she’d been armed during that robbery. “I would not have known what to do, ” Kim says. “It was three against one. Six. Or seven. I’m not Laura Croft.” Although there is a certain physical resemblance . . .

Then, and not for the first time, we get the scripted Everytown for Gun Safety talking points, in a studio setup, with brooding music composed for the occasion.

“I personally am not a fan of owning guns and having guns in the home,” Kim declares, “especially with everything we’ve learned.” (What do you mean we, fabulously wealthy celebrity woman?)

Keeping Up With The Kardashians slips immediately into full anti-gun agitprop mode, complete with black-and-white testimony from survivors of “gun violence.”

Kim closes this excerpt by arguing that she doesn’t have guns in the house . . . for the children!

Except of course, she does have guns in the house. They’re just wielded by armed security. And plenty of ’em. But I bet that thought already occurred to you. I just hope that it occurs to millions of their adoring fans.

I bet it does.

KUWTK reminds of nothing so much as Dallas: a fabulously rich family that [supposedly] has the same problems as the show’s middle-class viewers. Only viewers know that the Ewings/Kardashians are not like them. Their problems are not the audience’s problems.

The Kardashian’s ballistic soul searching has no impact on TV viewers’ instinct to protect their families from criminal predation — for millions, by force of arms. It’s entertaining — perhaps — but irrelevant. True?

  1. How can she go “That’s what you have security for” but not recognize that the vast majority of women can’t afford security? or does she think that only celebrities have stalkers?

    • If those women can’t afford security, they should reprioritize their finances, like buying a Mercedes instead of a Bentley. And if that’s not an option, they should talk to their fathers about restructuring their trust funds, so they can afford security and a Bentley.

  2. Colion Noir said it best “when you call a police officer, you’re calling a gun.” In Kim’s case it just happens to be that she takes the private plan instead of the government subsidized one.

      • Unless, of course, that hired security happens to be somewhere else. Like in the case in France.
        She was left totally defenseless, with no idea of how to protect herself. She was lucky.
        And she fails to understand that.

  3. “Khloe asks Kim if she’d have known what to do if she’d been armed during that robbery. “I would not have known what to do, ” she says.”

    Well, if instead of sitting at home mindlessly rambling on about a subject they are all hopelessly ignorant about, they were to instead go attend a basic handgun instruction course they might then have a better idea of how to deal with the problem.
    But no. Continued willful ignorance is much easier and makes for better television viewing.

    • The klueless Kardashians wouldn’t sit for a gun safety course, this is 2017, for cripe’s sake!

      What they *would* sit for is BLoving’s YouTube gun safety course. (Set to Barry White music, of course.)

      Break out that video cam and get to work… 😉

      • Any video I’d make would get quickly spiked for violating YouTube’s service agreement. But at least y’all would finally get to see my Ruger phoenix logo tattoo before the moderators dropped the hammer on me. 🤠

  4. It’s good to know who the enemy is, and to define it / them.

    Anyone who takes any advice from that family is the enemy. Look what they did for Nicole Brown Simpson, and what they did to poor Caitlyn Jenner.

  5. The Ewing family actually ran an oil company, didn’t they? The Kardashians run Kardashian, Inc.

    The original, often imitated but seldom duplicated , famous for being famous celebrity family.

  6. Why on earth would I give a rats ass.. what these idiots think..?

    TTAG.. I appriciate 99.9% of what you do any why you do it.. But you just wasted about 5 minutes of my day…

    Aside from this post… keep doing what your doing! Thanks!

  7. Bunch of HollyWeird elitists! Pro-aggressive LibTURDS spinning left-wing agitprop and Propaganda! Their time should be better spent improving THEIR Hollyweird escort services, and developing a line of Kardashian condomes…So they DON’T breed…..

  8. isn’t Bruce Jenner now Kanye Wests mother in law…? or something like that…?
    totally normal family and conversation

    • Oh damn! Not only did I spray Coke out my nostrils on that one I now have to clean up the passenger side of my wife’s car! She thought I had lost my mind, laughing and spraying Coke and moaning with the pain, carbonated beverages aren’t compatible with sinuses!

  9. There is no resemblance between laura croft and kim k.
    One is a video game vixen that can be turned off. The other is a FLAME DELETED that we wish could be turned off.
    FLAME DELETED

  10. They are special, since they are on TV. They “NEED” security, but the unwashed masses don’t need it because we don’t have stalkers. (SARC)
    Anyone who takes a stand against firearms should not be allowed to have armed security – I bet they would change their point of view real quickly.

  11. I have to hand it to the Kardashians, I am not sure what they do exactly, but they make a lot of money from it. Evidently living in the real world is not a skill they have mastered. If they actually educated themselves before opening their pie hole concerning just about anything from politics to firearms it might be interesting, but I digress……As to Caitlin, if he/she is a lesbian trapped in a mans body, does the math work out? Or is it new math. To bad Einstein isn’t alive, he probably could figure this out.
