DENVER (AP) -- Some Colorado fans are upset after music superstar Madonna used guns during a performance.
Madonna started her show Thursday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver with a gun scene, which she has used in previous performances.
According to KUSA-TV, the station received several calls Friday from concertgoers saying they were offended she used guns and violence as part of her show in light of recent events in the state that included a mass shooting at a theater during a Batman movie on July 20 that left 12 people dead.
In a statement before beginning the tour, Madonna said she does not condone the use of guns. She said she is using the guns as symbols of intolerance and "the pain I have felt from having my heart broken."
There is no doubt that the Colorado Shootings was a tragedy. However if you start to live in the shadows because of horrible events like this you are doing exactly what these criminals have set out to do and that is to make you live in fear, strip you of your freedoms, and make you feel uneasy in your hometown.
Remember the "fallen" and not the "act of terror" or the "criminals" themselves.
