Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen Super Bowl Ad Inconsistent with Gun Stance

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Hollywood “stars” Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen are appearing in a Super Bowl commercial for beer, Adweek reports.

The 60-second spot parodies politics as “the duo campaign across the country for Bud Light, popping up at rodeos, bars and even interrupting a Lakers game to lobby for the beer.”

The “beer lobby”? Don’t these two also shill for citizen disarmament-advocating critics of what they call the “gun lobby”?

Yeah.  They do.

Rogen, unable to express himself without using the “F” word, called Ben Carson’s comments on gun ownership “despicable,” and disparaged the contention that guns could have made a difference in the Holocaust and in last year’s shootings in Oregon. He also likened American Sniper, about Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, to Nazi propaganda, which is a curious stance for someone who hired a “former Special Forces bodyguard.”

Schumer, related to compulsive Senate gun-grabber Chuck, teamed up with her cousin to call for ending private sales and compiling all the necessary pieces to enable registration. Doubling down, she also appeared at the White House to back Obama’s latest series of executive infringements. Evidently, when you can order security to remove people who don’t appreciate your “talent,” the DIY security that people of lesser means must resort to is just not a concern.

That Rogen and Schumer (and anti-gun sports leagues and networks) rake in tons of money by encouraging people to drink alcoholic beverages seems more than a bit hypocritical. After all, per the National Institute of Health, “Nearly 88,000 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women) die from alcohol-related causes annually, making it the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.”

Alcohol deaths dwarf what they blame guns for.  Why no similar outrage? Instead, Seth jokes about getting others drunk in order to promote movie attendance. And Amy jokes about getting drunk herself in order to get attention.

If we were going to apply gun-grabber smear tactics to force alcohol users not to scare the rest of us with their “selfishness,”  we’d start disparaging such people as “alcosexuals” and “rumhumpers.” We’d demand “universal background checks” in order to buy the stuff, and require permits and licenses. Of course there would be “prohibited persons.” Perhaps we could expand that to include a “watchlist,” because who would be meaner drunks than terrorists? Maybe there’d also be a waiting period to rethink purchases, and one-bottle-a-month laws. We’d also have to ban “assault booze,” because why does anyone need high capacity alcohol content?  Ultimately, we’d be working toward total prohibition — for the children.

Ridiculous, right? Does anyone in their right mind think such stupid-on-their-face ideas wouldn’t make things worse? Maybe there’s a parallel in here somewhere…

The fact is, responsible people can and do control themselves around guns and around alcohol, and do not behave in a way that hurts themselves and others. The same can’t be said for “progressive’ prohibitionists with their addictions to telling peaceable people what they aren’t allowed to have and do.

    David- I didn’t watch the Super Bowl and knew nothing about this ad until a few days ago. When I saw a still shot similar to the one you have above, my first thought was that the two people in the ad are probably hip, trendy, clueless comedians who are probably very popular with the clapping seal crowd. Then, this morning I find your article to discover that the two hip, trendy, clueless comedians in reality REALLY ARE two hip, trendy, clueless comedians.

    Thank you for validating my first impression.

    The above video is very damning. It shows several examples of Schumer stealing jokes line for line.

    There was a typo on the number of alcohol related deaths; it should read 88,000 per year. All of these are senseless deaths. The gun related homicide deaths of about 11,000 per year also include “justifiable homicide”, which is self defense. In addition, you will see the anti-gunners claiming that only a couple of hundred people save themselves by killing their attackers. The problem with this is that they don’t include the perpetrators that are only wounded, which would number many more than those killed, and it doesn’t include the nearly 90% of the instances where someone pulled their weapon… Read more »

    I appreciate your comment, but I feel one sentence needs to be changed.
    Namely, that “The Second Amendment is our given right by our founders of this country”.
    The Second Amendment like the others in the Bill of Rights, is the recognition of rights that are ours prior to the founding of our nation. The recognition is a reminder to our government that they cannot be touched.

    Please boycott the Budweiser beer company, Amy Schumer, and Seth Rogen for their stance against gun owners. I use to be a Budweiser fan, but not anymore. These people try to force their beliefs on people. I can think for myself, thank you. The Second Admendment is our given right by our founders of this country. They need to leave this country, if they do not like the Bill of Rights.

    @RoboGOP, Sadly Anheuser-Busch was purchased by the Belgian company InBev back about 2008. They are not owned by the Busch family anymore. I am sure InBev only wants to push their own anti-firearm (Socialist) agenda. There won’t be enough intelligent people to make a significant dent in their income with a boycott. I would join your boycott, but what passes as the standard beer in the USA makes me ill and I don’t ever drink it to begin with. I had already made the decision to skip the Superbowl this year as my team did not make it all the… Read more »

    It would be interesting to know how many “gun deaths” also involved the use of alcohol or drugs.

    Perhaps it would be a good idea to contact Budweiser and inform them why you won’t use their product anymore. Hit them in the pocket book. I am also glad you identified these two “famous elites”. I had no idea who they are.

    Not to mention that Amy Schumer is a noke thief – she has been caught stealing jokes and skits line for line. How despicable to be a comedian and steal jokes!

    David, I always look forward to your posts, this one is no different. You have a way that allows you to say what needs to be said without being rude, nasty, or threatening. Thanks you for working to educate those that are not believers in the rights of the 2nd amendment!

    But, But, But, David … Don’t you know they and theirs are above the law, and the death thing always happens to other people, and they shouldn’t be held responsible for people who are influenced by them. Am I my brother’s keeper?
