    Madonna says gun control is the “new vaccination”

    The 62-year-old singer took to social media over the weekend to demand new laws be put in place in the US to put restrictions on firearms, as she said the process will “save lives”, just like the new COVID-19 vaccination


    Madonna posted a video to her Instagram account in which she put up fly-posters featuring messages including “Wake up America” and “Gun control now”, while she shouted “wake up motherf******”.

    The clip – which was soundtracked to her 2019 song ‘God Control’, which is about mass shootings – was captioned: “There’s a new Vaccination! It’s called GUN CONTROL! Should be mandatory. It will SAVE lives!”

    Madonna also directed her fans to the campaign group Everytown For Gun Safety, which describes itself as “a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities”.

    The ‘Like A Virgin’ hitmaker then uploaded a second post in which she spoke out about two recent shootings in the US, including the death of 13-year-old Adam Toledo, who was shot by police in Chicago after appearing to drop a handgun and raise his hands.

    She wrote: “Adam Toledo was 13 years old, Daunte Wright was 20.

    “The officers who killed them are only being charged with manslaughter. This is insanity. Horrific. And yet it has become normalised in our society. Yes – people kill people, not guns. But the vast majority of people are not enlightened and guns are too easy to own.

    “If they were outlawed then no one would feel the need to own a gun to protect themselves from those who have guns. As for police killing innocent children: shooting and suffocating and brutalising innocent people ... They should go immediately to jail for the rest of there [sic] lives. No trial, no corrupt justice system.”

    Madonna’s “new vaccine” comments also come after she was flagged by Instagram for “spreading misinformation” last year when she claimed a vaccine for COVID-19 had already been found but was being hidden to “let the rich get richer”.

    Instagram blurred out the video with a caption saying: “False Information”, and the clip was later deleted from her account.
