“I went to the gun range and learned how to shoot a gun for the first time,” 24-year-old actress and cover girl Blake Lively tells USA Today. “It was awful. I asked myself, ‘Why were these things ever invented?'” As Fergie would say, h-h-h-h-hold it. Would I be wrong to conclude that Ms. Lively is being a tad egocentric here? She couldn’t shoot so guns suck? No wait. I got it wrong. She can shoot (according to her): “I did feel good that my first three shots were straight to the heart [at an unknown distance shooting an unnamed weapon of an unspecified caliber from an unidentified position].” So guns are bad but I was good and . . . that’s good. “It’s good to know – don’t mess with me in a gun battle.” Youth has its privileges; including ignorance.

  1. She is pretty, but sure looks older than 24 in that photo. A buddy of mine says that before we are born, we are walked thru a buffet where we can select 10 items to become part of our future personality. Choices include, math, music, beauty, compassion, logic, patience, etc. He calls girls like Ms. Blake, “9 and 1” girls, because they asked for 9 pretties and 1 giggle.

  2. wiki:
    “During the 2008 United States presidential election Lively expressed her support for Barack Obama. Lively and Badgley appeared in a pro-Obama commercial, as part of MoveOn.org’s Youth Vote program.”

    • They were invented so her beau, Ryan Reynolds could use them in movies like “Safehouse” with Denzel Washington to make a pile of cash.

      • That’s guns, not implants… The implants were invented so she could make a pile of cash just standing there ans not uttering a damn syllable. The crap that falls out of the mouths of these hollywood hypocrites when they’re not reading a script is pure stupidity.

    • Bumped something and posted too soon.
      If Ms. Lively is ever targeted by a violent criminal sociopath, she’ll understand EXACTLY why firearms were invented given the inherent disparity of force which exists between genders.

    • If her next yachting foray ends in disaster and she get a bit of the Swept Away treatment, it would do her nothing but good. She’s good but guns aren’t? I can here her now, “well I was good but the sex wasn’t.”

    • “*human race”

      Fixed. Every attempt to maintain genetic homogeneity is doomed to abysmal (and disgusting) failure.

  3. ‘Why were these things ever invented?’”

    If I recall my History correctly, if they hadn’t been invented, our social and political organization might still be Feudalism.

  4. Naw. Swords, spears, and arrows can be used quite effectively by the serfs also, assuming the royal class does not have firearms either.

    • Feudalism was doomed when the Feudal Lords could no longer defy the King, and be secure in their castles. Before gunpowder made it possible to destroy castle walls by cannon fire, only a long siege, at great expense, would enable the King to exert his authority over the Nobles and establish the nation state, in place of the patchwork of fiefdoms that was Fuedalism.
      The rebellion of serfs against the ruling class came later.

  5. The hypocrisy of her statement gives me a headache.

    I’m confident this starlet / brain surgeon has a security detail that carries those awful-never-should-have-been-invented-gun-thingees.

  6. Who knows how she actually feels, but she had to espouse that position. If a young actress ‘came out’ in favor of guns, the Hollywood establishment would crucify her. She would never get another acting job again.

    • Explain that to Disney Girl Selena Gomez. Or better yet, don’t. It wouldn’t be such a bad thing if she didn’t get another job in Hollywood.

  7. I find it icky, so ban it.

    Don’t all good little lib/progs mock SoCons for supposedly taking that attitude towards gay marriage?

  8. If she doesn’t know why they were invented it’s not going to do any good to explain it to her. Unless it has to do with nails, shopping, and Cosmo does a story on how it gets her man hotter.

  9. It’s times like these that I remember my Chief Wiggum – “Why are the pretty ones always insane?”

  10. “I went to the gun range and learned how to shoot a gun for the first time,” 24-year-old actress and cover girl Blake Lively tells USA Today. “It was awful.”

    Let me guess: you wore a low-cut top and ended up doing the Hot Casing Bra Dance?

  11. Blake, honey, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but you would be in for a rude awakening if you were ever in a real gun battle. Darlin’.
