Kim Kardashian Tweets On Texas Shooting, Background Checks Sparks Heated Twitter Debate

Send to Kindle

Socialite and reality TV star Kim Kardashian West’s tweets on Texas shooter David R. Conley III and his alleged online firearm and ammunition purchase has touched off a heated debate between pro and anti-gunners.

“He purchased the gun & ammo ONLINE! How is it so easy to purchase guns online!!! Does this not sicken you? No background checks needed!!!!!” Kardashian West tweeted.

Her anti-gun comment was about Conley III, the convicted felon who executed eight people in his Texas home, including six children.

Gun control organizations feasted on the celebrity’s tweet and thanked her for leadership and for “speaking out.”

“Thank you, Kim for speaking out about our broken gun laws!” Everytown for Gun Safety wrote on Facebook.

But not everyone was keen on Kardashian West’s tweet, and many have called her out for spreading non-factual information.

“. @KimKardashian False. Background checks apply and must be sent through an FFL. You may want to learn a bit more about this first,” tweeted Dana Loesch.

Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts was quick to rush to the Kardashian West’s defense.

“.@donkermit @KimKardashian Not required if you meet in person in states that haven’t closed background check loophole,” she tweeted.

But Loesch didn’t back down and fired back.

“. @shannonrwatts False. If legally prohibited from carrying it’s illegal to purchase in any state. @donkermit @KimKardashian”

The debate on Kardashian West’s Twitter feed is likely still raging on, but hopefully it won’t get in the way of her reality TV show.

    Kim, stick to things you know, whoring, shopping, and sucking dick. People “famous for being famous” have ZERO standing outside of the tabloids. Name your new kid “Target” and only let him go to “Gun Free Zones”. Go make another sex tape, and make the next one interesting please. You even suck at sex.

    Hey Kim, just remember “When Seconds Count the Cops are only Minutes Away” Your body guards only carry Cell phones?

    I didn’t know anybody from the unnatural and immoral wasteland that is the kardashian family knew how to read anything other than a telepromter. Who really cares what a wannabe porn star says.

    Why are we giving that disgusting family of trolls even a mention on this forum . Has the 15 mins of fame not been enough of these immoral ,degenerate stain on America including the “it” brucey or whatever he decides to call himself .These people make millions being trash and influencing impressionable youth in all that is wrong .I would hope Gunsamerica would simply turn their backs on any of these peoples irrelevant statements because they matter as bout as much as pond scum .

    WHO cares what Big Booty sex tape kim has to say ? Someone had to receive the fiream even if was bought online ( FFL ) . Another uneducated Hollywood leftist . But I know for a fact her security team is armed ! The seller didn’t send it to the shooter Priority mail !! Or have the UPS driver drop it off ! Did your Uncle O/J get his L.A. murder knife online ? Or his Vegas Robbery gun online ? How about just shutting up ? And keeping those Monster Mudder Tires under your dress aired up !

    Kim who?

  • elloyd_tunt August 17, 2015, 9:59 am

    She’s a brainless, cross-bred, C-Movie porn star wannabe who hasn’t a clue about reality in spite of being a “reality TV star”.
    I want to know who punched the response ‘tweets’ into her phone; it’s a cinch she lacks the intelligence!

  • Ram6 August 17, 2015, 9:19 am

    So Kim Kardashian tweets and the world listens? What on earth has this nation become? Kim Kardashian knows as much about firearms as she does about her choice in mates. Why this is any knd of news, let alone national news is beyond me. As has been already stated her comments regarding internet sales is dead wrong so it should be dismissed out of hand. Frankly I’m sorry I even thought to comment on this trash.

  • Joe August 17, 2015, 9:15 am

    Why would any sane person give a shit about what any idiot with a cave for a vagina and an aircraft carrier for an ass has to say on a stupid assed social media format.

  • John Peters August 17, 2015, 9:08 am

    STUPID IS WITH STUPID. LOOK AT THEIR FAMILY TREE. THEY DON’T KNOW SHI! ABOUT ANYTHING BUT STUPID !!!!!!!!!!!!!. BAD PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS BE BAD PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD NOT JUST IN THE USA.
    THIS THE REAL WOLD OF REALITY NOT TV SHI!!

  • jim jadwin August 17, 2015, 8:34 am

    Just because one of your stupid husband’s homies are willing to exchange a satutday night special from the trunk of their caddy for one of your slutty porn tapes why not be a true cretin libtard and ban trunks on cars. That should make you feel much better you talentless money grubber. QUESTION: What’s black and white and is funny as hell. ANS: A car load of Kardashians going off a cliff.

  • alex August 17, 2015, 6:58 am

    just goes to show how stupid america has become that people would even listen to a whore,slut from new jersey.

    • jim jadwin August 17, 2015, 8:36 am

      Just another reason to be ashamed to be from NJ

  • John August 14, 2015, 9:31 am

    Once again, zero truth in their statements. Why do they make this stuff up? Are really that stupid? The answer is , yes they are incredibly stupid. There is no internet loophole. But,if it furthers your cause, just lie. If your passionate about this issue ,it would be a good idea to know the law. DON’T OUTLAW GUNS, OUTLAW STUPID PEOPLE!

  • DRAINO August 14, 2015, 9:21 am

    I agree with the news anchor who walked off stage and refused to report anything on the Kar-trashians any more. Don’t give these morons the air time. They are really nobodies. Thanks Dana for trying to educate them on the truth of internet firearms sales…..but you can’t educate people that are happy in their stupidity. Their lifestyle personifies the term “Trash”….a waste.
