Video: William Shatner – How Gun Control Works

In this video the man most famous for playing Captain Kirk on Star Trek, and who starred as Denny Crane on ABC’s Boston Legal, offers a view on gun control not normally seen on television.

Cool, calm, collected and right on target. This is how you do it. Priceless!

I never watch TV but someone a few years ago told me about that scene. I tried looking up all the times Shatner shot somebody on that show and the body count is quite impressive for a liberal show.

Reminds me that Shatner, during WW2, was a young Jewish boy in Montreal with four Jewish grandparents who had come from Eastern Europe.

I wouldn't get too excited. In Boston Legal, Denny Crane (Shatner's character) has Alzheimer's Disease and is often seen spouting gibberish and nonsense. I'm sure the writers included this speech as part of his 'illness.'

From Wikipedia:

Denny Crane

Boston Legal character

A name Partner of Crane, Poole & Schmidt, Denny Crane is a renowned attorney of some fifty years of practice who claims he has never lost a case, and never will. He considers himself a legend and loves to say his own name to "sign" his verbal utterances. In one of the final episodes of The Practice, he explained that often people don't believe they're in the room with a legend, so he says his own name to let them know it's true. Denny suffers from memory loss and confusion as part of the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, but often refers to his troubles as "mad cow disease" when his utterances are confusing to others or when he himself becomes confused. While he is still trying cases as late as Season 1 of Boston Legal, by Season 2, he seems to have lost most of his talent for complex litigation, though he still shows flair in appealing to a jury in closing arguments. He is a conservative who believes gun control is for "communists" and refuses to defend anyone who is accused of extremely heinous acts; in one episode, he shoots a client because of the nature of his crime (raping and murdering a child). Denny enjoys an extremely close friendship with Alan Shore, is also a womanizer like Alan, and has no problem sleeping with the wives of judges and clients. Though he marries another woman in Season 2 (from whom he is quickly divorced after engaging in an act of infidelity at their wedding reception), he still pines for Shirley Schmidt.

Very funny, but this vid was banned as racist a decade ago.

Denny should have shot the perp center-mass. Aiming/shooting at a perps knee and foot can get you killed.

No, that is not the video link. It’s a link to your blog. It’s not nice to lie about what you’re linking to.

This is a link to the video. https://youtu.be/_KvO-8IvoCI

You don’t make it halfway through the Universe by being a Metrosexual. It takes a REAL MAN to command a Star Ship.

I know...God...but I don’t think Kirk was consulted when they gave him his commission...and he made a mess of at least our Galaxy.
