Kim Kardashian urges Kendall Jenner to speak out about gun control prior to Paris robbery
Kim Kardashian urged sister Kendall Jenner to speak out about gun control prior to the reality star being robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
The reality star said she feels really passionately about how American gun laws should change and reveals she’s set up a lunch with gun violence victims who would love to meet Kendall and Khloe.
Speaking in an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim says: “Khloe was telling me that you really wanted to get involved in something.
“I work with this organization Everytown, and I set up a lunch with some gun violence victims – some family members that have been affected that I think would really love to meet you guys, because they really do appreciate people like us speaking out.”
She adds: “There are so many loopholes in the system and I just feel really passionately about how our gun control laws have to change.”
However, Kendall seems a little reluctant, saying she’s unsure of how many people would feel the same.
“I want to be a part of this,” she admits. “But it makes me nervous about what people will think of it. You don’t know who’s actually going to be for it and who’s not.”
But Kim is resolute, continuing: “I feel like in life I’ve gotten a lot of backlash and I’ve gotten a lot of hate, so I’m going to just stick up for what I believe in and what I want.”
Though Kendall is still unsure, telling camera: “It’s kind of difficult because I know that we are public figures, and seeing how controversial it could be to speak out about something you’re passionate about … I just think I don’t want the attention of someone not agreeing with what I’m saying to take away from the fact that there’s actual gun issues that need to be handled. It might bring more harm than good.
“It’s something that you believe in so you have to be confident in it and go for it, but at the same time, like, I don’t know.”
