Kim Kardashian Calls for Gun Control in Wake of Florida Shooting

Kim Kardashian has taken a break from stripping nearly all the way down to address the most pressing issue currently facing our country:

Gun control.

In the wake of 17 people being gunned down at a school in Florida on Wednesday, the reality star has chosen to use her social media platform for something worthwhile right now.

We’re not saying photos such as THIS ONE are not worthwhile, of course.

But they are certainly meaningless in the wake of this horrific school shooting.

“We owe it to our children and our teachers to keep them safe while at school,” Kim Tweeted last night, adding:

“Prayers won’t do this: action will. Congress, please do your job and protect Americans from senseless gun violence.”

The mother of three is reacting here to the way in which most politicians offer “thoughts and prayers” after a shooting of this nature.

But we didn’t vote them into office to deliver hollow platitudes, Kim is arguing. We voted them into office to actually pass legislation.

On Wednesday afternoon, a 19-year old named Nikolas Cruz opened fire on students and staff members at  Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

He used an automatic rifle to end the lives of these 17 people, while injuring many others.

In the hours since this tragedy took place, a debate has once again arisen over whether new gun control measures ought to be put in place.

Along with her own message on the topic, Kardashian re-Tweeted a number of other points people made on Twitter in regard to this contentious issue.

To wit:

gun retweet

This actually isn’t the first time Kardashian has pushed for gun control of some kind.

In November of 2016, she talked to Kendall Jenner about the issue, emphasizing how important it is for celebrities to get involved in various political debates.

Just consider the reach they have, she stated.

Watch the clip below: 

Just over a week since this scene was filmed, Kardashian slammed Congress about it failed to pass meaningful legislation.

“Nothing has changed!!!! People continue to senselessly die. When will these gun laws be changed?!?!?!?!!!!?????” she asked on Twitter at the time, adding:

“The fact that anyone can so easily access guns is so scary & after all of the devastating loss the Senate should have not failed us!!!”

We almost never say this about Kim Kardashian, but… we agree.

We agree completely with everything she is saying here.

In televised remarks from the White House Diplomatic Reception Room on Thursday morning, President Donald Trump said he was committed to making schools safe and to tackle the issue of “mental health” in America.

He did not say anything about gun control.

“I want to speak now directly to America’s children, especially those who feel lost alone confused or even scared,” he added.

“I want you to know that you are never alone, and you never will be.

“You have people who care about you, who love you and who will do anything at all to protect you.

“If you need help, turn to a teacher, a family member, a local police officer or a faith leader. Answer hate with love. Answer cruelty with kindness.”

That sounds terrific in theory.

In practice, answering an automatic weapon with kindness will simply get you killed.


This Is Us Fans Curse Out Crock-Pots in Wake of Latest Bombshell

This Is Us Spoiler Alert:

Jack Pearson is about to die.

Granted, fans of this emotional NBC drama have known this for several months, but they were given a major clue as to what leads to Jack’s death on This Is Us Season 2 Episode 13.

On Tuesday’s installment, we were treated to a flashback to Jack and Rebecca’s neighbor, George, gifting the young couple with a crock-pot because he and his wife were cleaning out their house in preparation for a sale.

He warned them at the time that the switch had to be fiddled with and that the item was not in mint condition… but that it still worked.

Fast forward 17 years on the show and we witnessed Jack turning off the crock-pot and leaving the room – only for the switch to somehow turn back on!

It sparked. It ignited a dish towel. And it created an blaze that quickly worked its way through the kitchen

Indeed, it looks very much like Jack will die in a house fire and that it will all be this faulty crock-pot will be to blame.

(We’ll finally find out for certain on this Sunday’s post-Super Bowl episode of This Is Us Season 2.)

As a result of this bombshell, This Is Us fans are seriously peeved.

Not at the show, necessarily, but at the appliance that basically takes Jack’s life.

“I just threw my crock-pot out the window….#ThisIsUs,” one fan Tweeted shortly after Tuesday’s hour ended, while another chimed in as follows:

“I will never accept a crockpot as a gift now #ThisIsUs.”

This people seem pretty darn serious. You do NOT mess with Jack Pearson.

“I get married in less than 2 months and suddenly I feel the need to remove the crockpot from the registry. WE. DONT. NEED. IT.  #ThisIsUs,” added another disgruntled viewer.


In response to another fan asking on the official Crock Pot Facebook page whether the brand would be airing a Super Bowl ad to address this controversy, the company replied:

“Jack Pearson was our Valentine so we equally understand your pain with his loss. We love him and we love you too.

“Don’t further add to our heartbreak by no longer using Crock-Pot Slow Cookers, rest assured our products have been generationally tested by your family and friends.”

Another Internet user named Ruthie pressed the brand for a response to the matter, noting that “so many people are worried now.

Crock-Pot wrote back: “We’re heartbroken over last night’s episode too!… [W]e’re innocent until proven guilty.”

It got to the point where series creator Dan Fogelman had to jump on Twitter and take a moment to remind angry fans about a certain basic facts:

Later in the day yesterday, as the outcry reached a fevered pitch, Crock-Pot issued the following detailed statement to TV Line:

Crock-Pot understands the concerns brought up by last night’s episode of This Is Us, and we too are heartbroken by the latest development in Jack’s storyline.

However, it is important that our consumers understand and have confidence that all Crock-Pot slow cookers exceed all internal testing protocols and all applicable industry safety standards and regulations as verified by independent third-party testing labs.

For nearly 50 years, with over 100 million Crock-Pots sold, we have never received any consumer complaints similar to the fictional events portrayed in last night’s episode.

In fact, the safety and design of our product renders this type of event nearly impossible.

this is him

Our hope is that the team at NBC’s This Is Us will help us spread factual information regarding our product’s safety.

While we know their primary mission is to entertain – something they have continued to excel in – we also feel they have a responsibility to inform.

Just like many fans, we will be watching next week’s episode to see how Jack’s story progresses and, regardless of the outcome, we want consumers first and foremost to know they are safe when using their Crock-Pot.


Wow, huh?

This Is Us fans mean business.

They may end up bringing down an entire slow cooker industry all by themselves.
