Kim Kardashian’s Paris Robbery Has Moms Demand Action, NRA Tussling on Twitter

While in Paris Sunday, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in her hotel room. The gunmen apparently made off with property valued at over $10 million — rings worth an estimated $4.49 million and a jewelry box worth an estimated $5.6 million.

E! News reported on the incident, “Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers,” a spokesperson for the reality star told the news network.

“She begged for them to let her live and [said] she has babies at home,” a source familiar with the robbery told E! News. “Then they wrapped her mouth in tape and put her in the bathtub. She thought for sure they were going to kill her.”

Guns in Paris? Who would’ve thought? Given the country’s tough stance on civilian gun ownership, one wonders how these lawbreakers were able to bring firearms into the gun-free zone that is La Ville-Lumière (The City of Lights).

Well, this was the exact point that National Rifle Association made on Twitter — to the chagrin of Everytown for Gun Safety, the pro-gun control organization funded by billionaire business magnate and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.

To which Everytown responded:

The NRA then tweeted:

If you ask me, arguing on twitter is like trying to swim laps in a kiddie pool. It’s a dumb idea. There’s just simply not enough room to get the job done. That’s why Twitter is a hotbed for pot shots, snide comments, caustic memes and misleading graphics instead of a place where critical inquiry, self-reflection and respectful discourse leads to real enlightenment. Without the space to really communicate and thoroughly debate an issue, what’s the point?

Anyways, I digress. As best as it could given the limits of the platform, the NRA iterated the truism that when guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns. Put bluntly, Paris’ gun-free zone is a failure. It failed Kardashian and it failed more than 100 people last November during a well-planned terrorist attack. Until more Parisians realize they’re exposed by gun-free zones — not protected by them — nothing will change.

Oh, and as far as that chart that Everytown posted, I’d like to see the ratio if they removed all of the murder victims who had gang affiliation and/or drug-related problems.  There’s no doubt that gang violence and drug wars in cities like Chicago and Detroit and Oakland greatly impact homicide figures.

    Moms needs to shut the F up if they have never been to France and seen what a shit hold it has become because of all the liberals letting the hoards of criminal,immigrants into France . The French can’t just walk into a local gunshop and legally buy a gun .My neighbor regularly flies to and from France to see his Mom who still lives there .. It’s worse than the media shows you . This is coming from a French Citizen’s mouth .. Moms should go live over in France to see what it’s really like .. Moms demand action ? I say Moms demand action should listen to the French citizens talk about how they wish they could buy guns to protect themselves . And stop worrying about some cheap trashy whore and her gangster thug little bastard’s husband . Tough shit she got robbed . Shoulda had a gun .

    In every society the class of people with the power control arms and have the right to defend themselves. There is only one modern society where that class of persons is the people and not the government. That is what it comes down to.
    But that aside, I have no respect for someone who walks around with 10 Million of Jewelry without an armed guard. She can afford it and is certainly a high profile person who tweets every step she makes.

    Population of France 66.03 million
    Population of USA 318.9 million
    That’s 4.8 times the people
    I rest my case….

    The gun deaths per 100,000 meme … by the same people who want to legalize drugs.

    Sounds fishy to me. How many people carry 2mil in jewels around with them just in there too and not in the Hotel Safe? This bunch is a strange gang as here is Kayne in debt and bingo there robbed. Glad I’m not there insurance carrier as there would have to be a big big ol investigation into that robbery.

    Looking at statistics of just gun murders across countries that allow and don’t allow guns is comparing apples to oranges. Instead compare total murder rates regardless of method.
    Murders with guns in countries that allow guns should be expected to be higher for guns. That’s “common sense”.

      Dam, the trouble with your argument is that it is logical. Liberals and Democrats are fundamentally incapable of understanding logical arguments. There is simply no getting through to them.

    The drug and gang problems are in Paris, also, so that isn’t a good arguement. In France and other countries, it is much harder to get guns, especially for the street thugs – in that, gun grabbers may be right. Maybe, if she had a firearm, this would have gone down differently, but I do not think so. If this isn’t an insurance scam, I am sure it was planned and done by professionals, that had access to firearms, and not street thugs.

    Captain Obvious says insurance scam by the West’s. Kayne is $5M in debt.

  • Andy Buckmichael October 7, 2016, 7:14 am

    These are all black people. It is a scam for insurance money.

    Scuttlebutt has it that the criminals were going to do heinous and carnal things to her, but then saw her without makeup and chose to just take the stuff.
