Default Anti-gun celebrities

If you're on the Guns and Ammo email list, you've seen this. Otherwise, here is a G&A online story about eight surprising anti-gunners. These have seen the last of my movie/DVD/CD/PPV/iTunes money, plus anytime their names come up in conversation, they'll get a "did you know?" from me:

Sylvester Stallone
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Sean Connery
Dany DeVito
Mark Wahlberg
Matt Damon
Kevin Bacon
Shania Twain

Guns? What guns? Oh, I haven't seen those since I left my garage door open one night by mistake.

Here's the NRA's link too...

Is there really anyone on that list that we give a crap about anyways?

Most of the men on the list have made big money shooting guns on the silver screen. What a bunch of hypocrites.

Really I am not surprised, they are all Hollywood morons. I wonder is any of them could articulate any REAL reason they are anti-gun, or are they just the product of Hollywood brainwashing? A better list would be who is pro-gun in Hollywood. I bet if you were to make comprehensive lists of pro and anti celebs, there would a lot fewer pro celebs. I think the worst part is that so many mindless American just eat up what these so called "role models" say.

You are exactly right! If these actors were true to their stated beliefs, they would refuse to take roles that "glorify" guns.

Meh...if you were offered $20 million to portray a rapist in a movie, you'd jump on it, I know I would. I don't know anyone that is pro-rape. I personally don't care if they contradict their own political beliefs in movies, it's just fiction...What it does tell me is how they feel about our constitution and the fact they are sh!tty excuses for Americans...

Don't forget Clint Eastwood. He was a big pusher of the Brady Bill. "Lefty" Eastwood supporter of Obama has always been a beiow the radar gun control supporter.

Yeah, it kind of broke my heart when I found out Sean Connery was a p.o.s. Clint Eastwood too? Makes me sorry any of them ever got a dime from me.
