Madonna's Pistol Heels

Are these shoes hot, or do they promote violence?

... And speaking of heels.  These Chanel pistol heels Madonna rocked to Monday night's premiere of her directorial debut Filth and Wisdom, are hot.  I saw them today in the New York Daily News. But the shoes are $2,200. (Do guns even cost that much?) It also looks like the 80s Material Girl is leaving hubbie, Guy Ritchie.  I hope these shoes don't represent how angry she is. Do you think the pistol-heeled shoes promote violence, or are they simply a fashion statement? Or are they both?
