It’s rare to hear someone in the Hollywood scene speak the truth about guns, but that’s exactly what Madonna did in a recent interview with ABC News’ Elizabeth Vargas.

When asked about the choice of choreography in her current tour, which drew criticism because of the first act’s heavy use of guns, the pop icon said she would have never left that part out.

"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."

Will Madonna, an ardent supporter of Barack Obama (remember this?), survive the outrage that’s sure to follow from her liberal friends and fans? Probably. But then again, with the way the Left reacted to actress Katee Sackhoff's tweet about gun safety, we can't be sure.
