Yeah, people like Schwarzenegger, Stallone, even Cameron Diaz enthusiastically put that stupid scowl on their faces and act like "they baayud" in the movies when they are using a full-size machine gun to "blow away" a dozen bad guys. And they have bodyguards who are armed to the teeth to protect thm from peons like us. Then they join activist groups and talk about how "evil" guns are and how we of the general public don't have enough sense to be allowed to own guns for our protection.

The ironic part is that in reality they have far less to fear from the likes of us than they do from their own ideologies!

Where do you think the well meaning but uninformed public get their misguided notions about shooting, especially handguns?

Strange but I don't recall anybody being charged, let alone convicted, for Brandon Lee's death (or that other dude).

In Hexum's case he emptied the cylinder of the blanks, reloaded one blank, spun the cylinder, put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, so no one to charge or convict, just another Darwin Award winner.
