3. The Hollywood elite at it again


I oppose artists, actors and entertainers taking these radical political stands. Better to heed advice from intellectuals like Chuck Norris, Victoria Jackson, Craig Nelson, Charlton Heston, Ted Nugent, Bo Derek and their ilk.

Down with the Hollywood elite.

Disclaimer: I do realize I just listed a bunch of mostly washed up actors and has beens, but that doesn't stop the righties from posting quotes from any one of these dipshits every couple days or so.

6. THAT is a 'radical political stand'??

You seriously need to get your priorities in order if you think gun control is radical. And comparing the people in that honorable video to nuts like Norris, Jackson, heston, and Nugent is really sick.

Time to pull on your big girl panties and grow up.

7. Demanding an end to Gun violence

This is a radical stand to you?

Does being an entertainer mean one should not let their voice be heard?

in the post Sandy Hook conversation anytime soon. They've already had their say.

20. Reese Witherspoon has been speaking out on this issue for some time.

Unfortunately the media decided years back that we were supposed to give up.

Getting to the video, Chris Rock has just the right line ("As a human being!").

Update: less that 12 hours later, it has gone from 30% dislikes to nearly 40% dislikes.

26. That's the problem. The "Other Side" of this argument is armed...

dangerous and somewhat irrational when backed up against the wall of public opinion.

32. "somewhat irrational"

That might be an understatement. Let's hope they limit themselves to just clicking buttons on the internet.

29. LaPierre has a plan.

My point being, the devil is in the details. Some plans (like the NRA's) would do more harm than good.

But I wholeheartedly agree with the OP -- we can't just wail & gnash our teeth for a couple months, then do nothing and revert to the status quo (which is essentially the NRA's status quo).

I hear Joe Biden's working on it.

How is it that 30 years ago people knew the idea of "arming everyone" was pure satire?
