Unarmed Equality for Hollywood’s Anti-Gun Glitterati?

United States -(AmmoLand.com)- What is it about Hollywood elites who jump on their soapboxes proclaiming to be saviors of America, but then do everything imaginable to undermine the core principles of its founding?

Take Hollywood’s anti-gun glitterati for example. Between making personal fortunes from glorifying guns in their movies and living exuberant lifestyles that includes armed security, one would think they would support their fellow Americans right to self-defense. Nope.

We’ve all heard of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his scandalous anti-gun program Everytown For Gun Safety. Now, Academy Award-winning actress Julianne Moore has recently launched her own gun control group called Everytown Creative Council, which, not surprisingly, falls under the auspices of Bloomberg’s organization. To help her, she has recruited fellow celebrities Meg Ryan, Amy Schumer, Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon, Kevin Bacon, Kristen Bell, Jessica Chastain, J.J.Abrams, and others to join in her un-American assault on the Second Amendment.

In a Huffington Post blog, Moore had the audacity to write:

  • “We are actors and artists, but we are Americans first. … We respect the Second Amendment but keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of convicted criminals, terrorists, domestic abusers, stalkers and dangerous people isn’t anti-gun; it’s pro-common sense.”
  • “We know that more than 90 percent of Americans support common-sense reforms that are proven to save lives. What not enough people know and what the gun lobby doesn’t want more of us to know is that a large majority of gun owners support these reforms too.”

This is a level of propaganda we would expect from the pompous pigs in George Orwell’s 1945 classic novel Animal Farm. All people are equal, but some people (the elites who like to make the rules) are more equal than others.

First, Moore attempts to establish herself and her fellow creative comrades as “Americans First,” which is nothing more than a stealthy ruse that acts as a preemptive strike against our reasoning and constitutional understanding of the Second Amendment. Next, she attempts to instill fear by listing all the bad guys who could potentially get their hands on “dangerous weapons.” Apparently, she has never read the FBI’s yearly published Uniform Crime Report. If she did, she would know that the most used lethal weapon of all is not a gun, but rather a bludgeoning instrument, primarily the fist.

Moreover, who does she mean when she loosely uses the terms “terrorists” and “dangerous people?” NRA members? Tea Party supporters? Christians? As if this is not enough, she also cleverly uses nicer sounding words like “pro-common sense” instead of “anti-gun,” even though gun control proponents like Bloomberg and his gang believe confiscation is the best exercise of common sense. Finally, Moore throws out some made-up statistics without citing where they came from in hopes that a few suckers will take the bait, hook, line, and sinker. It appears Moore is so consumed with mindless emotionalism that she feels there is no need to do research.

Like Bloomberg’s group, Moore’s primary goal is to secure stronger background checks, as if criminals actually care about background checks. Clearly, this hasn’t stopped her bad guys from having it their way in gun-free zones. Even California’s uber strict gun control laws haven’t prevented such crimes. Case in point, the recent San Bernardino terrorist attack. This is precisely why many of us believe we need to be responsible for our own self-defense. This includes women, the fastest growing demographic purchasing firearms today. Instead of cowering with their children in a closet, these women are now preparing themselves to fight back. Why such a proactive stance? It’s is about real life and death, not a Hollywood movie!

Still, it’s Moore’s latest promotional stunt with her fellow creative comrades that truly takes the cake. It’s a video — a selfie of sorts. It features Moore and other celebrities offering a message that is as repetitive as it is boring. It goes like this: “We can end gun violence.” Apparently, this is the best the so-called “creative community” can come up with. Their big surprise comes at the very end when President Obama reprises his old cliché, “When we come together, Americans can do anything.” Yawn.

As you can see, while Washington and Hollywood anti-gun glitterati exalt themselves making bogus public service announcements, real American’s are taking constitutionally lawful action to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their communities.

Frankly, Americans are sick and tired of elitists making two sets of rules — one set for themselves and another for everyone else. A prime example of this is the recent Golden Globe Awards where Hollywood’s crème de la crème benefited from the largest presence of heavily armed security in the show’s history. This is why Virginia state senator Charles Carrico is currently proposing a new law that would deny armed security to elected officials who oppose American citizen’s right to keep and bear arms. To me, this is one of the best examples of a common sense gun law. Perhaps this new standard of unarmed equality should also apply to busybody Hollywood celebrities.

QUESTION: Should Hollywood celebrities who oppose American citizen’s right to keep and bear arms be denied armed security? Share your thoughts on Facebook, Twitter, or other social media.

    There is one executive order that could be written by our current president. He can declare that Hollywood can no longer make any movies which have a firearm in it. He can do the same for every TV show, series, special, documentary etc.
    Since he and the DNC control the mainstream media he can order them not to air any news segment which displays a firearm. Therefore these actors, actresses, artists will have to compete on their abilities as opposed to relying on a firearm prop.

    Why does anyone care what these stupid actors think about anything? They play lets pretend for a living. They are collectively a group of self important NO NOTHINGS!! They need to shut up and go play in the street!

    Just who decided “Celebrities’ were anything other than overpaid people who can pretend to be something they are not or the victims of multiple personality disorder? Where is it written that these “people” are anything other than PEOPLE. They put their pants on one leg at a time just like the rest of us. Do you have any idea why “royalty” are royalty? Because they say they are, and the lying manipulating criminal Vatican putz supported it. Other than that and including that, it is all bullshit. Just because talking heads yack about gun rights or gun wrongs does not… Read more »

    As simply stated: “we are actors” explains it all! MONEY from the Bloomberg Slush Fund drives the senseless to new extremes. Start boycotting movies, and see where these “actors” end up!

    We can stop — watching your movies and television shows. FYI, my guns are incapable of violence or thought, the latter making them liberal, I think.

    As much as I disagree with his politics, I’ll give credit where credit is due, and say that Dustin Hoffman at least lives up to his beliefs as a hard-core anti-gunner by refusing to take parts in movies that glorify guns.

    The rest of the anti-gun actors and actresses (especially those who make their fortune off shoot-em-up’s) – hypocrites of the first order.

    MacGyver was sanctimonious anti-gun drivel. The first time he refused to pick up a gun in a life threatening situation, they lost me. You avail yourself of EVERY TOOL AVAILABLE to survive a bad situation. You want to piss away your life for a political statement, knock yourself out. I’m gonna shoot the bastard.

    David, we have seen that exact type of scenario, just not on the big screen. On the small a screen, for 7 seasons and 139 episodes America watched as a Vietnam vet, Army EOD tech foiled the bad guys with nothing more than a Swiss army knife and whatever he could find… though I think his mullet had magical anti-bullet force field properties. Yes, MacGyver only ever fired a firearm in the very first episode and never again. His solutions and TV fictional exploits are well known, often inspiring many Mythbusters episode solutions. Unfortunately it just goes to show how… Read more »

    Here is a letter from Ed Chenel who is a police officer in Australia. Hi Yanks-I thought you all would like to see the REAL figures from down under 12 months after Australian gun owners were forced by a NEW LAW to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our government, a program costing taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. First year results are now in: Australia wide, Homicides are UP 6.2 percent….Assaults UP 9.6 percent.. Armed robberies are UP 44 percent.. In the state of Victoria alone homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. ( he notes… Read more »

    “We the people” don’t have the luxury to hire person body guards who carry guns. We have to protect ourselves from the hood. These Hollywood people don’t live in the real world. They love guns in their movies but don’t want you to protect yourself as they are protected. Our lives don’t matter to them. Only the rights of the hood criminals and their lives.

    The antagonists (bad guys) would still have their guns and the protagonists (good guys) would have to restore to other tactics such as hiding and calling police or fighting with blunt objects like baseball bats, golf clubs, umbrellas and fists. I don’t think if movies were made like this that they would be much fun to watch.

    We should end the use of Guns….IN MOVIES. The Hollywood elites should be barred from using Fire Arms in their Movies. They could give us a preview of what a Gun-free Society looks like and how well it works, but it is so unlike Hollywood to put it’s money where it’s mouth is. Come on “Actors” Dare to be Brave.

    So, elitist Hollywood actors are hiring convicted criminals, terrorists, domestic abusers, etc for personal security and this makes them Hippocrates? I’ve got another idea, if you can’t pass your background check then maybe you should just get your weapons the same way as the criminals, terrorists, domestic abusers, etc.

    These Hollywood rats are being led by the Pied Piper Bloomberg. They don’t know why they are following, but they know it sounds good.
