Madonna & Guns: Singer Brandishes Fake Pistols & Machine Guns Despite Warnings, Recent Events (PHOTOS)

Madonna Guns
In this photo from her Hyde Park concert, Madonna is seen with the guns she would use in Scotland — just days after the Aurora shootings.

Maybe she really just doesn’t read the news, but Madonna’s managed to do it again: Despite being warned by police, the singer — who named her album after a thinly veiled drug reference — defied a ban and waved fake machine guns and pistols on stage at her show in Scotland on Saturday.

Her performance drew the ire of Mothers Against Guns, who said the 53-year-old singer “should know better.”

“Madonna and her dancers using replica guns was always in bad taste but given what happened in Colorado it is even worse,” a representative for the organization told theSaturday Morning Herald.

The singer’s camp remained defiant. “Madonna would rather cancel her show than censor her art,” a member of her tour staff told HuffPost’s Rob Shuter. “Her entire career, she has fought against people telling her what she can and cannot do. She’s not about to start listening to them now.”

HuffPost Entertainment has checked in with Madge’s tour developments from time to time. Whether she was flashing her nippleputting swastikas on politicians’ faces orknocking Lady Gaga, many fans were able to dismiss her antics as typical attempts at staying relevant. It’s unclear if the fallout from Saturday’s gun-toting show will be met with a similar, “Oh, Madonna.”

In the days since the early Friday shooting at a showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” that left 12 dead and a total of 71 people sprayed with bullets, President Obama has traveled to Aurora, Co. to meet with victims and their families. Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York has relentlessly framed the massacre as indicative of the need for better gun laws. Flags around the nation were lowered to half-mast. But because nothing says “edgy” like writhing around on stage with plastic machine guns, Madonna’s show must go on.

Photos of Madonna’s love affair with fake weapons are available below.
