    Wow, I really liked some of these people. I really,really,really liked Shania Twain. But now I have to officially say, she can kiss my a#@! And it really bothers me when some of these a#@holes make millions in movies with guns. Then, when their guards can be armed, but we can't? I guess they feel their lives are more important than ours. SCREW THEM!

    Wahlberg aka Marky Mark is reportedly a prohibited person (felon). Apparently the studios go to great lengths to keep him from what the BATF would consider an actual legal type firearm.

    I'm not surprised that the Hollywood elite that built their careers with guns are a bunch of hypocrites.

    Actually, I'm not surprised by anyone on the list. After all, they're rich, and can afford to hire bodyguards.

    Our RKBA wasn't created for the rich or the politically elite (usually the same thing). It was created for the common man, to protect his freedoms against tyranny of the rich and elite.

    And against BG's, but that was secondary.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    If I stopped watching a particular actor because of their personal beliefs or opinions, well, I wouldn't be watching many movies. I am going to continue watching these actors. No point in getting all worked-up to the point where I start axing movies I enjoy watching.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    Yeah, my thought exactly. I'm quite surprised/disappointed to see some of those names, but oh well, I like them for their acting skills, not political viewpoints.

    Stalone, and Swartzenaggerggarzerggar are kind of funny, don't you think? They have made billions in the box-office blowing people away, and blowing sh*t up.

    The second one was pro 2a, but flip flopped like every politician when he was elected governor of California.

    They are 'anti-gun' in two respects:

    1. They don't want -you- to have a gun. They have them, their bodyguards have them. They are elitist, because, well, they are the elite. Many have had stalkers. So I'm not too surprised at their surface reaction. They don't realize that gun laws don't deter stalkers or criminals or BGs.
    2. Publicity and private life image. If you're in a lot of gun movies, and violence movies, sometimes it makes sense to try and divorce yourself from that image so people won't think you think you're a big tough guy and want to challenge you. Be low key off the set and have less problems. Be seen as non-violent and friendly - it's better than seeming to be as your movies portray you. I get that. For publicity purposes you don't want to be seen as a movie psycho type just because you do those roles. Many Soap Opera actors report people on the street confusing them with their characters and shouting hateful things at them. Not good. I don't envy some of what movie actors have to go through, so it's best to take these lists with a grain of salt.

    I'd rather be a Jimmy Stewart type, seen as friendly and non-threatening in real life. Yet he could do dramatic roles. If you're Sly Stallone, and thugs want to make a name for themselves challenging you that's not optimal.

    The only one that really blew my mind was Stallone. I've been a big fan my whole life. Other than Rocky, he hasn't done a whole lot without a gun. He's entitled to his opinion and I'll continue to watch his movies but I'll never have the same level of respect for him that I once had.

    The same goes for Ahnold and Connery. Neither of which are natural born US citizens. As far as I am concerned, if they dont like our Constitutional rights, they can go the **** home.

    Wahlberg is one to talk....I believe served time for robbery in his pre funky bunch days.

    Kevin Bacon....Well, it seems as though the only thing getting him airtime is things like this because, lets face it, his latest movies are flops.

    Matt Damon? Really? Huh, I never would have thought that the pro .gov actor would be against guns.

    I dont believe any of these "celebrities" are truly anti gun. I believe these are words of a publicist telling them the "right" thing to say.

    Either way, most of them make good movies. And I'll continue to watch. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    Really? He's a flaming liberal.

    No surprises from Hollywood on gun control, considering that roughly 97% of celebs are declared socialist-"progressives". H'wood is essentially run (albeit indirectly) by the movie industry. The "shakers and movers" in H'wood are the studio executives - and they have the final say on who works in their films. The vast majority of them are liberal, socialist-"progressives", so - if you want to be on-screen talent in the industry you have to "sing the company song". Celebrities like Jon Voight, Gary Sinise, Charlton Heston, Patricia Heaton, Stephen Baldwin, Robert Duvall and Kelsey Grammer have dared to "come out of the conservative closet" in recent years, but conservatives are still (visibly) a very minor "minority".

    As for the action/adventure actors who denounce guns while flagrantly using them on-screen... they're ACTORS! Where's the surprise that what they portray on the "silver screen" is not who they are in real life? Their "beliefs" are easily compromised by the liberal application of financial compensation!

    I'm with those of you who enjoy movies as entertainment. I don't pay my money for political enlightenment, I pay it to be entertained for a couple of hours. I don't really care what a celeb has to say about anything other than what's in the script (the singular exception to that rule is the traitorous "Commie Jane Fonda" - I have boycotted her movies for close to 40 years). Celebrities have no special insight into politics. They are neither oracles, nor prophets. They are people with more money than they can reasonably spend, who are willing to pay $40,000 (or MORE) to have lunch or dinner with candidate "X" for some reason. I suppose it makes them feel "special" - like a personal pal of a powerful individual. I've had better food, for much less money, with better people, at any number of chain restaurants. Pax...

    If they are a "celebrity" I just assume that they are a weak minded liberal toeing the Hollywood choir book. I'm rarely wrong and rarely disappointed. That makes it a pleasure to see someone like Tom Sellek or Janine Turner.

    I have only two things to say about this.

    It's rather silly to let one (or even a dozen) opinion(s) fundamentally change how you view or treat a person. Imagine how boring and mentally stagnate life would be without any variety in philosophy or interactions between people who think differently.

    Now for the crazier bit, I'm half-inclined to let the antis get their way. Think about it--current regulations don't stop criminals from acquiring weapons and ammo. Future regulations wouldn't stop freedom fights either from doing the same to overthrow the tyrants. Jus sayin. If that's too crazy for these boards, I'll keep such ideas in my head next time

    How'd that work out for the UK? You really think it'd be any different here? Unfortunately, the total number of folks that would actually be willing to pick up their guns and fight the government in this day and age would be laughable at best. Just keepin' it real.

    Well, yes and no....

    When Marky-Mark was 17, he was convicted of attempted murder, and was sentenced to 24 months, but only served 45 days because he was a minor. Under a quirk of MA law, this DOES NOT make him a "convicted felon" and not a "prohibited person".

    However, under Federal law, he DOES qualify as a prohibited person.

    So he can't purchase a firearm from an FFL, or in any transaction that requires a BATFE Form 4473. But if he purchased a firearm through a private transaction in a jurisdiction where no FFL involvement or NICS check is required, he COULD purchase and possess...
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    Well we had plenty in 1775. I haven't seen any data to suggest the unlikelihood of a second successful revolt, if ever necessary. Naturally preventing the need would be preferable, but it wouldn't necessarily be the end of the world if we failed at that.

    Comparing what we had in 1775 to what we have now is kinda ridiculous on so many levels.
