Madonna - Madonna Defies Police Pleas And Takes Guns Onstage During Scotland Show

Madonna ignored pleas to tone down her Mdna show at a concert in Scotland on Saturday (21Jul12) and brandished a machine gun and pistol onstage.
Police officials advised the pop superstar not to include images of firearms and weapons themselves during the Murrayfield Stadium gig in Edinburgh in the wake of the Colorado cinema massacre on Friday morning (20Jul12).
But she defied the local authorities and hit the stage with pistols and an Ak47 assault rifle - as she has at all the shows on her Mdna tour.
A spokeswoman for the Mothers Against Guns organisation tells local newspaper the Daily Record, "Madonna and her dancers using replica guns was always in bad taste but given what happened in Colorado it is even worse. She should know better."
Meanwhile, fans arriving early at the stadium caught the Material Girl and her band completing rehearsals onstage.
The pop star told the surprised concertgoers, "I'm just running through some songs early."
