Kim Kardashian calls for stricter gun laws

Kim Kardashian urged lawmakers to crack down on gun control during a visit to the prestigious Commonwealth Club of California on Tuesday night (30Jun15).

The pregnant reality star, who is expecting her second child with husband Kanye West, was quizzed at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco, California by Judge LaDoris Cordell for the iconic educational organisation and public affairs forum.


During the talk, Kardashian discussed the massacre at a historical African-American church in South Carolina last month (Jun15) where a gunman opened fire and killed nine victims, including the pastor.


The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star revealed her stance against firearms and blasted American gun laws, insisting restrictions need to be tightened up.


She says, "I'm not the type to have them in my house. They scare me so much. If I could do something to change the world... I'm not really a gun person, and we do not have strict enough gun control laws."


Other iconic names to speak for the club include former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and ex-California Governor and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
