Given that Erin Young’s stalker is familiar with Barrett rifles, I can understand why Ms. Heard would want it known [via the Daily Mail] that she sleeps within spitting distance of a .357 Magnum at night. The 23-year-old Texan bombshell seems pretty sensible on the gun safety front. “I’m a good shot and I love guns – I own several. I don’t have children in the house, so I sleep with my gun in a place that’s close enough that if I needed to protect myself, I could. It’s not in bed with me, though; it’s in a safe location. I’m fully trained and I’m an active member of a gun club. I’m definitely pro-gun.” So far, so NRA. And then . .
As Americans we’ve been told since we were babies that we have the right to own guns but I think there needs to be reform, because over 30,000 people in the U.S. died from gunshot wounds in the last year alone.
Yes, but the rate has been declining dramatically [see: NRA chart below].
Anyway, do we really want to know Ms. Heard’s legislative agenda for reducing firearms fatalities? Besides, Ms. Heard is an industry vet; she knows that her public persona is a much a fictional creation as the characters she plays. So, Heard loves guns, Heard hates gun death. And how about this example, a quote about dear old Dad is aimed straight at her “demographic.” Bullshit or bullseye? Your call.
He was pretty strict, and I think that something about the shotguns he owned maybe scared them. I was always into older men as a teenager. I never dated in my school; that was a ridiculous idea to me. If I did date, I was interested in artists – writer types that I met at cafés in Austin. I wasn’t interested in high school dances or hanging out at Starbucks after school.
