In the wake of the horrifically tragic mass shooting at a country music concert in Las Vegas Sunday night, liberal politicians and prominent celebrities called for stricter gun control measures to be implemented on American citizens.
However, one pop star who had been at the concert as a guest of country duo Big & Rich — former Pussycat Dolls member Kaya Jones — had an entirely different outlook regarding the Second Amendment-protected right to keep and bear arms in the aftermath, which she spoke about during an interview Monday morning on “Fox & Friends.”
After describing how she and others sought shelter from the deadly gunfire in the nearby Redneck Riviera bar, she explained that her regard for the Second Amendment had only grown stronger, as this situation was even more life-threatening for her than playing concerts in Iraq while under constant threat of rocket attack, according to Mediaite.

“Definitely, what it makes me do is just wanna, you know, carry conceal,” Jones said. “So, our Second Amendment right is enforced in my mind, for me. This is not going to stop me living my life or, you know, being a proud American, a proud performer, no way.”
Jones expanded upon that later in an exclusive interview with Breitbart where she revealed that, of all the people who sought shelter in the bar, only singer John Rich was armed, and how he handed his gun over to an off-duty FBI agent on his honeymoon who posted up near the door to offer the survivors protection. At that time, nobody knew the truth of the location of the lone shooter and everyone was under the assumption there were multiple gunmen firing and moving from different positions.
“All of us in that moment wished we’d had a gun,” she stated. “Because in our head was ‘someone could come through that door and we only have seven rounds in that gun.’ That’s the truth.”

“It’s horrible to hear people politicize something that is a travesty,” Jones said of those demanding tighter gun control laws. “There are innocent people that are dead. Let’s make it about them now.”
She spoke of the “nonsense and foolishness” perpetuated by some on the left and stated emphatically, “less guns don’t equal less terrorists. And I’m going to keep saying that until everyone understands.”
“We can take away guns,” she continued, but, “if you have a madman, he’ll use a car (as we’ve seen), or a knife (as we’ve seen), or a bomb (as we’ve seen). This is what terror is. It doesn’t come in the form of a gun. Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. And I’ll tell you the one thing that makes us feel safe is that John Rich had a pistol that he handed to an FBI agent.”
The pop star then discussed her Christian faith which drives her and her outspoken support for conservative values and President Trump, for which she is not ashamed, despite the efforts of the left to shame her.
She ended the interview with yet another call for the nation to come together and unify as one in the face of our enemies instead of remaining divided over differences.
“We need to not allow — whether it’s foreign or domestic terrorism — the right to think that they can smile over us and say, ‘We got ’em.’ You don’t, you’re not going to break the United States,” Jones said. “No matter how hard they try, we’re a free nation. And they hate us for that.”
“They hate the fact that we’re a free nation. And the sympathy in this country that’s going against our freedom is what’s really scary,” she added.

Indeed it is, which is why we like our guns and will keep them, thank you very much, despite the efforts of the anti-gun left.
