Kim Kardashian, who opposes the death penalty, is speaking out on gun laws following the Texas mass shooting.
The mum-of-four has taken to Twitter and discussed the Uvalde school shooting on May 24 that left 19 students and two adults dead.
In a lengthy post, she wrote: “I find myself heartbroken, disgusted and furious about how little has been done by lawmakers to enact gun laws that protect our children.

“There is no excuse and no justification for what happened yesterday. The current laws in our country around gun control are not protecting our children. We have to push lawmakers to enact laws that are fitting in today’s world.”
Kardashian went on to say that ‘weapons of war’ should be ‘banned,’ as they are ‘designed to kill’.
She continued: “Assault weapons didn’t even exist when the Second Amendment was written. We have to stop allowing people to use a sentence written centuries ago when technology, times, [and] humanity were completely different, to dictate how we regulate gun ownership, and how we protect our kids today.”
The reality star then addressed the legal age at which people can purchase firearms, writing: “Someone who is not old enough to buy alcohol should not be allowed to purchase a firearm.

“There is no world in which an 18-year-old needs a semi-automatic weapon or any weapon, and no world in which the outcome can be anything other than tragic.”
Continuing, she said: “We can’t accept this as normal anymore. It’s not normal for a teenager to kill children. It’s not normal for our kids to be practising active shooter drills in schools. It’s not normal to be shot while shopping for groceries. I’m not numbed by it. I will never be numbed by it.
“We can’t accept it. We can’t have another five years go by without effective, impactful laws put in place to protect our kids. We are parents, we are mothers, [and] we are begging and pleading for action.
“I’m urging our leaders to come together and put politics aside and put children first.”
