‘Last Blood’ Should be Last Straw for Gun Owners and Stallone Movies

“Action hero" Stallone has no problem with guns both on and off-screen as long as they're his.
“Action hero” Stallone has no problem with guns both on and off-screen as long as they're his.

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Sylvester Stallone gets back to his roots with explosive new trailer for ‘Rambo: Last Blood',” Agence France-Presse reports on the fifth installment in the series, scheduled for a September release. “Still in top shape at 73, Stallone's muscles are put to good use to save the life of his friend's daughter, who's been kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel.”

It won’t just be his muscles put to use, but plenty of weapons, including guns. How he’ll keep and bear them in Mexico without violating almost as many gun laws as ATF’s Phoenix Field Division is left unstated in what looks to be a nonstop blood orgy with first-rate Hollywood production values.

Those are the only first-rate values we’ll see out of a guy who has attained a ludicrous fortune through cinematic “gun violence,” all the while claiming the right for himself while undermining yours. Stallone’s total in-your-face hypocrisy on the matter makes it fair to ask why any gun owner rights advocate would give him another dime.

Until America, door to door, takes every handgun, this is what you're gonna have,” Stallone declared after comedian Phil Hartman was murdered by his wife. It wasn’t just an observation, it was a recommendation:

“It's pathetic. It really is pathetic. It's sad. We're living in the Dark Ages over there. It has to be stopped, and someone really has to go on the line, a certain dauntless political figure, and say, ‘It's ending, it's over, all bets are off.’ It's not 200 years ago, we don't need this anymore, and the rest of the world doesn't have it. Why should we?”

That pretend warrior Stallone should call on government raids to disarm millions of real veterans and the rest of his countrymen goes beyond hypocritical. It’s contemptible. And he didn’t stop there.

Not only are there additional anti-Second Amendment quotes, but also photos of Stallone pumping his fist at a Brady Center event in Los Angeles. Oh, and did I mention he was issued one of those “may issue” (meaning “may not” to you and me) Los Angeles concealed carry permits?

Forget a fake punch to the jaw. Donald Trump considering Stallone for a National Endowment of the Arts role was a slap in the face to the gun owners who elected him.
Forget a fake punch to the jaw. Donald Trump considering Stallone for a National Endowment of the Arts role was a slap in the face to the gun owners who elected him.

Speaking of pumping his fist, Stallone “joked” about “injecting” a former girlfriend with his. That’s some “action hero.” And then there were multiple allegations of sexual abuse, many with corroborating evidence that merit a consistent #MeToo treatment, especially from all those #BelieveWomen “progressives” who also share Stallone’s anti-gun sentiments.

Talk about red flags, and over the course of years. Imagine the law enforcement response — as demanded by Stallone’s fellow travelers in forced citizen disarmament — if such charges were leveled against you.

Why gun owners who care about their rights would pay top dollar to reward someone who wants to see them stripped of their birthright is a question only they can answer, especially when major theater chains are “gun-free zones.” But that hardly matters to someone who, based on his own words and actions, considers his fans to be “the expendables”…

    I did not know this about Stallone, but now that I do , I will not be watching his new movie or anything else he puts out !! These freakin hypocrites make me sick, they go on about other people not having something, but all the while having it for themselves ! I don’t understand how someone like that can even make the stupid suggestion like he made. He has been hanging around with Joe Biden , hasn’t he ?!

    Stallone is a Elite Hypocrite. He is also a Freemason. The Quest is the NWO agenda by Freemasons – Zionist’s. .
    Search the web for pics of him using the symbology. Research & you will come to know the truth. He doesn’t give a dam about you or me or America. Mammon RA is his God. He sold his SOUL out long ago. Spend some time research the pics are out there.

    Damn, I LOVED The Expendables. Didn’t know this about Stallone, but my rule is once I know the are Anti-gun Hypocrites I do NOT spend money to see their movies. That doesn’t mean I don’t see their movies, I just don’t pay for it. I Love Torrents 🙂
    OK, I did break my rule and saw Avengers Endgame in the theater, it has anti-gunner Chris Evans in it, but I saw it on $5 Tuesday, so…

    Support is support, whether it is $1000 or $.05, it doesn’t matter how you try to justify it! Me OTOH, have NOT paid a single dime to support Hollyturd, Disneyturd, the music industry, any athletics, nor ANY politician in more than 30 years. The only way I will watch or listen to ANY entertainment is if it comes across OTA programming, free dvds/cds from yard sales/auctions, or I’m at a friends house and have no control over the ‘entertainment being played. I don’t own a cell phone, I don’t have cable/satellite, and I don’t subscribe to anything on the internet.

    No Cable, satellite, Netflix, hulu, or otherwise. Most of the movies I watch were made before I was born, and the last TV series I watched in full was Airwolf.

    Honestly, you can find me reading books more than getting interested in anything on TV. If Hollywood melted down tomorrow, or every cell phone tower blew up I’d be one of the last to know, and completely indifferent about it except for laughing as everyone around me turns into versions of chicken little.

    movies.Yes there is and companies too. You’ll have to do a search for ‘anti-gun actors, well-known people and companies’. I knew all this before his first Rocky reboot ‘Creed’ movie. Kevin Costner and Josh Brolin are on the list too. You like Star Trek? It’s all about Socialism…. Star Wars too in a more concealed way. 2A Suppporting actors and their movies usually will not make the Big Screen these days. The times of John Wayne are long gone. I’d post the link the but it will probably not get posted. I’ve had enough of that too. A gun forum… Read more »

    You think that boycotting their movies makes a difference? If you have cable or satellite, you are still supporting them! Even if you watch a movie produced by Clint Eastwood, you are supporting leftist actors, sponsors, and funding, because no production is 100% conservative.

    How do you call out these hypocrites when they are so removed from the normal guy on the street. They don’t care what happens as long as they get their money and can spend it. They consider themselves to be the elite just like the oligarchs of Russia. The rest of us are the peons who are here to service them.

    I did not know until I read this article that Stallone was such a pansy. I haven’t been to a movie in several years because I haven’t felt compelled to support any of holliewierd and I have survived just as well without it, or taking the chance of getting shot in a theater. I do know that I would not support this snowflake ever again. He is a follower of the actors anti campaign and a snowflake.

    I have been boycotting his movies (if I have to pay to see them) for years…. I can wait to watch it for free so no royalties for the hypocrite!

    Unfortunately, Sly makes money on his films (as royalties, or residuals) in many ways (such as when it’s broadcast, or rebroadcast) even if you don’t pay to see them… So, the hypocrisy (and money-making off of it) lives on, and on, and on…. 🙁

    That’s true, but you have no control over broadcast/rebroadcast. It’s mainly the people who insist on having cable /satellite, buy cds/dvds, or do hulu/netflix/payperview. OTA broadcast is going to play whether you watch it or not!

    He gets away with with in Mexico just like the Cartels do. It’s just a movie and MANY anti-gun actors do the exact same thing in movies. Take it with a grain of salt be glad there are other actors who support the Second Amendment.

    Hollywood’s greatest co-stars are guns. What is mind staggering are actors who pretend for a living could ever be taken seriously. Even worse are the people who believe these celebrities never question their hypocrisy.

    I don’t think I’ve seen any of the Rambo, or in Sly’s case Bimbo, movies other then “First Blood.”
    I don’t watch any Liam Neelson movies either.

    THANK YOU FOR THIS!!!
    I hadn’t the slightest idea that Stallone was such a blatantly hypocritical guns-for-me-but-not-for-thee, hollyweird elite, satchel of richards! I loved the Rambo series, however after finding all this out, I will DEFINITELY NOT be supporting his past, present, or future ventures any longer. Perhaps Tom Selleck could give Wambo a much-needed lesson on the non-mutual exclusivities of being an actor AND pro-gun, simultaneously?! Its painfully obvious that if anyone’s ever been in desperate need of such a lesson, its Stallone, and A.S.A.P!

    WOW i am disappointed… but not really, the most prominent anti gunners always seem to be hypocrites. they run around with their armed security force and live in secure buildings or compounds all the while telling us regular people we don’t need to be armed. go figure. i served in the navy first then the army, went to Iraq where the ground soaked up a good amount of my blood. i served to uphold the constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic. i truly believe once the 2nd amendment to the Constitution is gone then the… Read more »

    Well, this is sad, disappointing and anti-freedom and liberty. He does not represent a majority but unfortunately, his celebrity voice is magnified and used to create the illusion that he is speaking for all of us. He is not. I will not support any of his films. Wake up America, “banning” or confiscating guns will NEVER make guns go away or will it make us safer. The OPPOSITE will happen: innocent law abiding citizens will be robbed, raped and killed at an evermore alarming rate.

    Given the proclivities of the entertainment industry and those who are entertainers to push for your disarmament, let me say we should be TOTALLY BOYCOTTING THE WHOLE INDUSTRY. If for whatever reason either you and/or your loved ones are addicted to entertainment and can’t turn off the pop music or the TV and read a good book, may I politely suggest that you poke the antigun entertainment industry in the eye while you do so?? What I mean is, people should kill the industry by massively pirating EVERYTHING that UNHOLYWOOD and its affiliates produce. Get a solid VPN service for… Read more »

    Isn’t it funny that actors in Hollywood want to take Firearms away from people?…They make gazillions of dollars making shooting and killing people appear to be stylish and fun…They have desensitized and violently motivated an entire generation…If it wasn’t for guns Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Cruise and some other action Stars wouldn’t exist… (Schwarzenegger was the only one that had the balls to join the military)..They owe our second amendment everything… As a matter of fact, action movies involving guns is the main reason Hollywood exist… Hollywood would fade out if it had to depend on chick flicks alone… Maybe I’ll watch… Read more »

    What a crybaby “author” LOL funny how he has nothing to say about Trump’s “Take the guns first” quote. “Rambo Last Blood” still gonna be a huge success, no matter how many times you “clean your peashooter” on those lonely nights

    Hey dummy, ever think just maybe – MAYBE – he’s saving that rant for another day?? Or are you so consumed with TDS that you’re pissed that everyone isn’t constantly railing against Trump day and night?? Maybe you need to get out and go watch CNN & MSNBC.

    And what makes you think that Codrea hasn’t said anything about Trump’s “take the guns first” considering it was said a year or so ago. I’ve been reading David’s commentary off and on for years and I’m sure he addressed it.

    Stallone… another Hollyweird commie.

    On another note: I didn’t win the drawing for the Ruger sec 9, and carbine. I still cry myself to sleep at night. Looks like I will just have to do it the old fashioned way with a coffee can, and handfuls of change.

    Don’t always Agree with Chapelle, but really respect his honesty about his views, and his willingness to point out the truth about certain subjects that many on both sides do not want to talk about.

    He is one of the few I think you could have an honest sit down debate with, even if you completely disagreed with each other at the end.
