After run-ins with stalkers and robberies, the Kardashians want to protect themselves. Last night on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner go to a gun range to learn how to shoot. "We want to learn how to be comfortable with a gun," Khloe says, per E! "We just want to protect ourselves."
The decision isn't something that all the sisters are behind. Despite being the victim of an armed robbery in Paris, Kim Kardashian is totally against her family having guns. She says that she wouldn't feel comfortable having her small children in a home where a legal gun is kept. "I know Kim is so against us getting guns, but for Kendall and I, it is something we feel we need to do in order to sleep better at night," Khloe says. "I think Kim will respect it more if she sees later how much work and effort and responsibility we put into this."
The shooting range turns out to be harder than the sisters imagine. Khloe is comfortable handling a weapon whereas Kendall is jumpy and hides behind a wall. "I can't believe Khloe like jumps into this and is so comfortable," Kendall says. "I've obviously been to a shooting range before, but it's literally scaring me so bad I'm hiding behind a wall."
Eventually, fans see that the Kardashians decide not to own a gun. As People shares, they learn stats about gun violence with Everytown, a U.S. nonprofit organization that advocates for gun control, and decide that it isn't for them. “It was just a lot of numbers and scary and a little overwhelming and dark to think about,” Khloe says. “I think the answer is not to add more guns into the world.”
