Celebrities Demand Gun Control on Twitter: ‘Stop Defending Your Right to Bear Arms. You’re Stupid’
The Blaze ^ | Dec. 14, 2012 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 12/14/2012 8:25:09 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

The Connecticut school shooting that left 27 people dead — including as many as 20 children — has prompted Hollywood celebrities to demand stricter gun control because they believe it will prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future.

“Too soon to speak out about a gun-crazy nation? No, too late,” far-left filmmaker Michael Moore tweeted. “At least THIRTY-ONE school shootings since Columbine.”

“The way to honor these dead children is to demand strict gun control, free mental health care, and an end to violence as public policy,” he added.

Screenwriter Kevin Williamson agreed. “We need gun control. Stop defending your right to bear arms. You’re stupid,” he tweeted.

Pop singer Michelle Branch tweeted: “Gun control people!!! My heart is breaking. As a parent this is my worst nightmare.”

“Parks and Recreation” star Rashida Jones said that “gun control is our only road to freedom” via her official Twitter account.

“Freedom from the fear of senselessly losing children. I’m so saddened. WE NEED LAWS NOW,” she added.

CNN host Piers Morgan wondered aloud on Twitter whether President Barack Obama would have the courage to “stand up to the American gun lobby.” He also tweeted the hashtag #guncontrol.

“We’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.” President Obama.

Gun control advocates celebrate..

see immediate nationwide confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens.. criminals later (if it's not too difficult).

Speaking about gun owners

Hot damn! We got 'em on the lam!

they cheered repeatedly.

I think Orwell was going to use that line in his book, but the publisher told him to shorten it to Slavery is Freedom

Seriously, why do we even care what the nitwits in Hollywood think. I propose that no left leaning celebrity be allowed to employ armed bodyguards or own any weapons of self defense.

There is a common denominator in all these mass shootings, both school and non-school shootings. That is they are ALL “GUN FREE ZONES”! I propose that we refer to “gun free zones” as free fire zones.

If guns are the problem why don’t we have mass shootings at trap and skeet ranges? In fact when I shoot skeet I don’t even lock my truck - who would be stupid enough to mess with it?

Once upon a time, we lived within a nation of laws based upon facts. Currently we live within a nation of emotions based upon lies to feed the frenzy of emotions. When facts are presented to those who want to react based upon emotions, the facts are one miss upon another miss when confronting a zombie. Eventually the non-zombie is eaten. The zombie doesn’t care. The zombie was already dead. Facts only mean something to the living. Emotions are a form of preparing for death.

It didn’t take long for the enemies of freedom to bathe themselves in the blood of the victims and call for gun control. That despicable POS in the white house was calling for it (though not by name) less than 6 hours after the tragedy.

We should try a little honesty here.

Let's be honest, WHO is REALLY more responsible for what happened today?

The NRA or,

The turds Hollywood sends down their sewer pipe into the theaters and onto the TVs of America?

The cable news "media's" glorification of these incidents with their constant 24/7 coverage. No one can tell me that the mall shooting didn't encourage this sleazebag and put crazy ideas into his head. He was looking for his "15 minutes". Cable news will give you a hell of a lot more than 15 minutes.

Aren’t schools already “gun free zones”.

How much more gun control can you have than that?

And how did it work?

We can’t even control access to drugs in prisons - the ultimate example of government control, and they want to restrict a device that any moderately educated person can build in their garage?

Thousands of one room school houses across the nation were kept safe by a shotgun standing in the corner, over these last 100 years.

Perhaps visit a school district in Israel?

The duty of teachers is to keep children safe at school, they stand in loco parentis. That danger now includes shooters who would enter the school and kill students. The answer, and the only answer of any American who has an ounce of sense is to arm teachers and make sure they are trained to discharge their duty to keep students safe.

Its just that simple.Meanwhile these celebrities think that disarming law abiding citizens is the answer, so that those law abiding citizens too will be victims to the next crazy a$$holes like you celebreties are, who come along armed?..... Making Americans all into sheep who must depend on others for self defence, one of the most basic human rights of any civilized nation?

We already have thousands of gun laws in effect, with little or no effect. Yet, these idiots want more! Gun laws only effect law abiding gun owners and will never deter the criminal element or those that want to kill other people.

Do away with guns, and the person intent on killing people will find another way ... bombs, knives, baseball bats ... they will find something.

Not only that, but there was once a time that people that were mentally ill could be separated from society. Committed. It’s extremely difficult, if not impossible, to do that any longer. Families with mentally ill relatives have no recourse, try as they might, and they have no choice except to just wait until their mentally ill relative goes ballistic and does something that destroys lives. They know, and want to do something, but current laws completely cut them off from helping their loved ones and the innocent lives that are at stake.

We bear arms to protect against criminals like this who attack the public tranquility. We also bear arms, as the Founders recommended and why they added the Second Amendment, to protect against enemies of the public weal who inhabit public office. In both cases, the objective is not just to be ready should our lives and liberty be trespassed on but to put the fear of God in all who would even think of trying.

How many thousands of Mexican citizens have been murdered by the drug cartels? Mexico has some of the most draconian gun control laws on Earth.

The incredible tragedy of the CT mass murder is that nobody was armed and able to stop it!

The first, knee-jerk reaction of these a$$hats is to disarm the potential victims, and make sure that nobody is allowed to defend themselves.
