Madonna blames gun violence on 'people not really raising their children'
The use of fake guns in Madonna's MDNA tour earned the star a lot of press, much of it negative, in the months following the Sandy Hook Elementary school shootings. But during a sit-down with "Good Morning America" last week, Madge compared her use of gun imagery onstage to that of action films, dropping the old adage, "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," she explained while promoting her new tour documentary. As for Hollywood's almost collective decision to delay the release of violent movies because of Sandy Hook, the singer went out on a limb, saying, "Well that's not going to change the situation. This all comes from fear and ignorance, and people not really raising their children, or not paying attention to what's going on."
