Lady Gaga Wears Gun Bra During Concert, Causes Controversy In Wake Of Sandy Hook (PHOTO)

Lady Gaga is under fire after wearing a bra featuring plastic guns during a recent concert, all while the nation wrestles to curb gun violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

On Friday, Gaga took the stage wearing a gun bra while performing at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada for the "Born This Way Ball" tour, according to GossipCop. The bra's cups featured two fake, plastic automatic rifles.

Gaga's gun bra triggered controversy, as she sported the questionable look just one day after Vice President Joe Biden met with Congress and the National Rifle Association (NRA) to discuss gun control legislation after 26 victims, including 20 children between the ages of 6 and 7, were killed in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14.

“I think it is gun porn,” Ladd Everitt, a spokesman for the DC-based Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, told the New York Post. “It’s almost like she’s telling her fans, 'The only way I can stimulate you is to show you guns and violence.' Does she not care about some of the grotesque episodes of gun violence we've seen lately? Is she not aware of them?”

This isn't the first time the 26-year-old singer has embraced rifle fashion.

Gaga wears a similar gun bra in her video for 2010's "Alejandro." She also wore one on the cover of the June 2010 issue of Rolling Stone magazine.

Despite the controversy her automatic rifle costume may have caused, Gaga has petitioned for gun control legislation since the Sandy Hook shooting. She signed onto the Demand A Plan campaign to end gun violence, offering her signature to a full-page ad that ran in the New York Times last month.
