(Miss Universe Pageant) — Proving once again that celebrities should stick to what they are good at, Miss Colombia Laura Gonzalez made headlines last week during the Miss Universe pageant as she supported more gun control.

During the Q&A session of the pageant Gonzalez said:

“I would tell any child that this generation, and even mine, needs a world with less weapons . . . It’s not about instilling fear in them, it’s about creating agents of change.

But Gonzalez is either woefully ignorant of her country’s gun laws or is choosing to forget, as Colombia has a nationwide ban on carrying firearms.

What first began as a week-long trial run in 2015, was extended by President Juan Santos by executive decree in 2016.

Despite this, Colombia’s sensationally high murder rate remains at a staggering 24.4% per 100,000 population –- over twice the murder rate of Chicago, for example.

But she doubled down and bragged about the difficulty of being able to carry a firearm in Colombia:

“Not just anyone can carry weapons. We are trying to reduce delinquency and distance ourselves from the culture of weapons.”

Clearly gun control is no more effective at stopping crime in Colombia than it is here in America.

If Ms. Gonzalez wants to bring about real social change, she could start by trying to undo the tyrannical gun control laws in her country that leave so many people defenseless against violent criminals.
