Pop icon Madonna isn’t known for her conservative ideology, but when it comes to guns, she has taken a decided right turn.

In a recent interview on “Good Morning America,” the “material girl” defended her mix of guns with choreography during her latest onstage antics and said she would never tone down her theatrics — and lose the weaponry — because of anti-gun pressures.

“That would be like asking people to not have guns in action movies,” she said, as The Blaze reported. “I mean, the thing is, 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 supervixen who wanted revenge.”

She was then asked her opinion about Hollywood movie makers who have softened gun imagery in movies because of mass shootings such as the ones at the Sandy Hook school in Connecticut or in Aurora, Colo.

“Well, that’s not going to change the situation,” she said, as The Blaze reported. “This all comes from fear and ignorance, and people not really raising their children or paying attention to what’s going on.”
