BOYCOTT his show, "BLUE BLOODS" until he comes out & disagrees with the way the NRA handled the murder of innocent children by a semi-automatic weapon!

23. Yeah, but you have to remember the NRA was different even then. They used

to not take ANY money from manufacturers. They didn't lobby, and when they 1st started lobbying it wasn't that radical side lobby they have now. It was just basic gun stuff. The whole guns don't kill people, people kill people started out as their gun safety mantra for training. It was to teach their members that the only way a gun could hurt something is by purpose or by carelessness. The idea that they twisted that makes me sick. That's why so many have fallen under their spell. They hijacked a mainstream org that was around for 150 yrs. alot of their members still have no idea where the money comes from or what they're lobbying for.

34. Back When He Was Staring in Magnum PI The NRA was Different

It was still an organization that represented its members, not the manufacturers. In fact, they brought in a whole gun safety course to my high school to aid the gym teachers with teaching gun safety. It was a good course and probably the first time many of my peers had ever touched a gun. I'm not sure when they and how they turned in the evil people they are now. Somewhere along the lines of when they became a lobbying organization of course. I bet their DC staff makes great money.

37. It seems to have changed course late 90s early 2000. Mid 2000 there was a fallout w/LaPierre and

they were going to fire him. Somehow, he kept his job and they put him on probation. About that time 3 board members left. It seems that was the tipping point. Sadly, so many people have no idea that they started atleast 2 lobby's, taking all this money from manufacturers, getting into other subjects like voting laws, it's a mess. But everyone still has the vision of them from the past. The money is sick. I know Chuck Norris makes 1 million per year as spokesperson for them. I think LaPierre makes over a mil. It's just gross. That website you see listed above has their salaries.

8. Tom

has been an NRA member for some time and apparently ran ads for them. Now he's on the board of directors and has not said one word about all the mass shootings. Lawrence said he's a decent man, and now it's time for him to do the decent thing - BAIL out of the NRA.

It was pretty powerful - referred to the NRA as "blood drenched."

11. He showed Selleck as guest on Rosie O'Donnell show....

Fourteen years ago, right after Columbine. Selleck had done an ad for NRA where I says "I am the NRA". Rosie went at him to the point that he looked like he was about to cry. He said...are you questioning my humanity? She said NO. But Lawrence O'Donnell said he WAS questioning his humanity and if he, Selleck, is silent...we'll know where he stands.

My guess is the NRA is giving him BIG MONEY. I can't imagine another reason why he would be so loyal to them and never speaks out.

http://www.nrawinningteam.com/norosie.html

Up until now I've been a big fan of Tom Sellecks. I did not know he'd been a member of the NRA for 14 years and is now on the board today. He has remained silent about his views about the past mass shootings.

Now I feel dirty and feel like I need a shower after having watched so many of his Stone movie series and his current TV show, Blue Bloods.

I urge boycotting him and everything he is involved in.

25. For Bio's on these guys including press statements, money, legislation

and criminal behavior. (I promise you'll be amazed/disgusted) look up
meetthenra.org Its a website/fact finding site funded and run by
Education to stop gun violence organization

They even have their facebook posts. I guess they are all over them. It's no suprise that many of them are radical anti-environmentalists, mysoginist, bigots. You also see alot of collusion between them on issues like the Northern Mariana Islands, anti-abortion legislation, and nicaragua.

Some of the names on this don't surprise me ... the "Nuge", Oliver North, R. Lee Ermy, and Chuck Norris. But Norquist and Bolton are a bit of a suprise.

entirely different. That was until I found a nude picture of T.Selleck .. not so much "Magnum'' as maybe ''Pistol''... if that.

If Sellick doesn't come forward and resign from the Board and denounce the NRA, his movie career is over. That was one scathing indictment, right there.

I never trusted him. He flunked my "too purdy" test. I was more of a Joe Namath gal.

36. I think it's fine to call him out, but really, is Tom Selleck relevant anymore?

Other than a short-term stint as Monica's boyfriend on Friends, has he done anything noteworthy since Magnum, PI? Lawrence states that all of America is waiting for Tom's response to the latest NRA bullshit, but I kinda doubt that anyone in America is awaiting Tom's response. Doesn't negate Lawrence's overall point, Tom should denounce the NRA,but I just can't see it being all that important one way or the other.

The pressure on public figures, like Selleck, needs to be sustained though. At least until there are some high level defections from the NRA.
