Gun bras don't kill people. People with guns kill people.
Lady Gaga was criticized by an anti-violence group for wearing a rifle bra onstage for her Born This Way Ball.
The firearms control group the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence saw it is a tacky move, given the Sandy Hook shooting in Connecticut last month.
A spokesperson for the group, Ladd Everitt, said, "What is the point of this gun porn? It's no different than a guy who poses with an assault rifle to look tough or send out a political message. You'd hope Lady Gaga would have a better sense of judgment. We would ask her to consider the influence she wields over many people and to use that power responsibly."
Gun porn? That's certainly a specific perspective.
Do you agree with the CTSGV's view of Gaga's gun bra? Or do you see it as just a stage prop?
