Meagan Good Weighs Gun Ownership Amid L.A.’s Soaring Crime Rate

The comments come after music executive Clarence Avant’s wife Jackie was shot and killed inside the couple’s Beverly Hills home on Wednesday morning (December 1).

Meagan Good revealed something that might surprise her fans.

A guest on Charlamagne Tha God’s Comedy Central show Tha God’s Honest Truth, the actress said she would feel more comfortable with a gun in her home after seeing home invasions on the rise in Hollywood.

"You know, what's crazy is [that] for a long time, I felt like I didn't. But now, with everything that's going on, I would feel more comfortable with a gun."

Good continued her reasoning and noted why she previously believed not having a firearm at home outweighed being strapped.

"The reason before my thought was like if something did happen to me, would I have the time to pull out a gun to defend myself?" she said, adding she never hopes to shoot a gun at her residence. "I don't want to kill anybody or hurt anybody, but I will defend myself."

Meagan Good’s comments come after music executive Clarence Avant’s wife Jackie was shot and killed inside the couple’s Beverly Hills home on Wednesday morning (December 1). At least one suspect made it inside during a home invasion robbery.

Additionally, Terrence J told police last month he was pulling into his driveway when another car pulled up and men inside ordered him out of his car. Shots were fired before the suspects drove off and no one was hurt.
