    Default Madonna (Really): 'Guns Don't Kill People, People Kill People'

    There's no word on whether Elizabeth Vargas had to receive smelling salts during her interview of Madonna which appeared on "Good Morning America." But it wouldn't be a surprise if she did.

    When the ABC reporter, whose interview was relayed by the network's Sabrina Parise and posted at Yahoo.com, questioned the diva's use of gun choreography in her current tour's stage show, she certainly expected a robust defense. But she probably didn't expect a trip into the land of the Second Amendment. Nonetheless, that's what happened.



    ... (the) choreography drew criticism with the first act of her tour relying heavily on the use of guns. Despite that criticism, Madonna says she never would have left that part out of her MDNA Tour documentary.

    "That would be like asking people to not have guns in action movies," she said. "I mean the thing is, guns don't kill people, people kill people. That whole first section of the show is like an action movie, and I was playing a super vixen who wanted revenge."

    Madonna even gave a statement that she does not condone violence, and that her work is art and nothing more.

    "But I know there was several movies that delayed release because of the shootings, for example, at Sandy Hook Elementary school," Vargas said.

    "Well that's not going to change the situation," Madonna replied. "This all comes from fear and ignorance, and people not really raising their children, or not paying attention to what's going on."



    So far, the "guns don't kill people, people kill people" quote is still in the video at the link. It will be interesting to see if it survives long-term. Someone who's tech-savvy ought to figure out how to save the full interview in case it gets snipped.

    Madonna's PC cachet is probably more than sufficient to survive the outrage which seems likely to follow, especially because of her vocal and edgy (i.e., profane) support of President Obama's reelection.

    Or so she'd better hope.

    I really don't see the issue here. What? Madonna's not allowed to have the same opinion as every member of the NRA?

    Probably a good thread to rag on Madonna for what ever reasons though.

    Edit: Oh! It just hit me. Madonna is pro Obama and also has the balls to be pro gun. Gotcha.
