Question of the Day: Would You Give Up Your Guns for Charlize Theron?

 Charlize Theron Mad Max 4 (courtesy deskofbrian.com)

“Everybody in South Africa has a gun,” actress Charlize Theron told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer back in the day. “And [when] those things are handy; terrible things happen. You shouldn’t have those things around because when people get irrational and emotional and drunk, terrible things can happen.” When Ms. Theron was 17 her mother shot and killed her father – who had just fired a shotgun blast through Charlize’s bedroom door. “I know that if my daughter was in the same situation, I would do the same thing,” Charlize said. Only she can’t now because A) she only has a son, and B) she’s living the gun-free lifestyle (except for her armed bodyguards). OK, so that brings us up-to-date. Enter Mr. Sean Penn . . .

Charlize Theron and Sean Penn are now an item. Charlize is anti-gun. Sean is a gun guy. eonline.com tells the tale . . .

While Penn didn’t refer to Theron by her name, he said that “a strong woman who happens to be from South Africa” changed his mind about owning [at least 65] deadly weapons.

“Being provoked by this aforementioned strong woman and considering how liberating of bulls–t and ugliness it would be not only get rid of the guns I have in the continental United States but also to destroy them, Jeff Koons and I had a chat the other day,” Penn said.

He said, “The highest bidder gets every single one of my guns put in the hands of this iconic artist and sculptor…Koons will decommission [and] render inactive all of my cowardly killing machines.”

Sarcasm? God I hope so. But I doubt it. Here’s the twist ending.

And guess who won the still-to-be-made artwork for $1.4 million? Anderson Cooper!

He outbid his CNN colleague Piers Morgan who stopped bidding at $1.3 million.

A CNN anchor pays $1.4m for an anti-gun sculpture and the company’s OK with him reporting on gun control and gun rights? Anyway, as Lord Humongous said, no more games! And answer the question: would you give up your guns for Charlize Theron? [h/t Michael Holderer]

    There isn’t enough yes in the world for this one. I can always buy more guns after she dumps me.

    1. avatar Shire-man says:

      LOL in my twenties I did just that for a woman. It was just a shotgun, the only one she knew I had. Had fun riding that for the better part of a year then just went out and bought the same gun back when it ended. All in all I’d say it was definitely worth it.

      1. avatar Soccerchainsaw says:

        My integrity is worth far more than a roll in the hay even if it lasts several months…

        Of course that’s easy for me to say now. When I was in my twenties I didn’t have any guns and had no desire to get one (or more) like I do now.

        1. avatar Chad says:

          I’ll keep my weapons but she can have my gun. This is my rifle, this is my gun. This is for killin, this is for fun

        2. avatar anonymous says:

          You’re supposed to call a doctor if it lasts more than 4 hours.

    2. avatar Marcus Aurelius says:

      I’d just lie to her about it.

      1. avatar O-Hebi says:

        All day and tomorrow! Sure honey, un-hunh…

      2. avatar William Burke says:

        +100. After all, “she MADE me lie, I swear!”

      3. avatar slicer87 says:

        If the girl really is into you, she would change her stance and not make you change yours. If she tries to change your stance and not her own, they she really isn’t all that into you.

    3. avatar ensitue says:

      Though I understand why she is being put forward (good looking Victim) it was not guns that brought grief to her life, but her father, and it was her mother with a gun that saved her life.
      The US Constitution/BORs is the enumeration of God Given Rights and that is more important than a roll in the hay with an emotionally scared, drug abusing woman
      As always my answer is thus: ‘Bite me’/No/Hell No

      1. avatar Mark B says:

        Thank you. I was just thinking the same thing. A 20 year old might have a different opinion about this, but personally I think I’d pass and tell her to go to hell. Another hypocrite that has used guns in her movies only to say that it’s not OK for civilians to own because of what bad people do with them.

      2. avatar Haiku Guy says:

        How would it have gone
        If nobody had a gun
        When Dad came callin’?

        I don’t know the particulars of the situation. I don’t know if her Father was frail or burly. But it is not unreasonable to suspect that he could have done whatever he liked to his wife and his daughter without having to use a shotgun. So it Charlize Theron’s perfect no-gun World, she and her Mother would likely be dead and he Father would be rotting in jail.

        I’m not saying that it was a red-letter day for Charlize Theron, but the situation could have been a whole lot worse if Momma had not been armed.

        God made Man and Woman, but Samuel Colt made them equal.

        1. avatar bozo says:

          Took the words outta my mouth. Wonder if she could go back & take all the guns out of the situation if she would.

      3. avatar Stinkeye says:

        Exactly. The violence came from her father, not the gun. Had there been no guns in the house, her father could easily have killed her with a knife or his bare hands, or any of a million other ways, while her mother stood by helplessly.

        1. avatar Avid Reader says:

          She conveniently overlooks the numbers of people who no longer walk this earth thanks to machetes.

    4. avatar Hal says:

      I disagree. All my LMTs and Glocks and CZs and HKs for some Boer harpie? Never.

    5. avatar Leo Atrox says:

      That’s funny. When I read Penn’s last sentence, I thought “this reeks of sarcasm.” It sounds like something uttered by “a dude” who just wants to “hit that” and doesn’t mind saying good-bye to a bunch of guns he can easily replace. I mean, Penn is out there for sure; but “render inactive all of my cowardly killing machines?” Who says that?

      1. avatar CarlosT says:

        Especially if he really did sell them for 1.4 million. That buys a crapload of guns.

    6. avatar Troy says:

      How about I just say I did.

    7. avatar ANON says:

      No matter how hot a girl is there is always some guy out there who is sick of her shit.

  2. avatar RKBA says:

    Yes, but only for about two minutes.

    1. avatar Rick says:

      How do you make it last for two minutes??

      1. avatar Avid Reader says:

        Reading the tramp stamp, of course!

  3. avatar General Zod says:

    As hard-left as Sean Penn is, I find it very difficult to believe he has ever owned even one firearm.

    1. avatar NYC2AZ says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Baghdad Sean being a gun owner hardly makes him pro-gun rights. Look at Micheal Moore and Bill Maher for further examples. Plus, being as rich as they are, they can just pull a Bloomberg and buy more guys with guns for protection.

      1. avatar KD says:

        Guys, my reaction is Mr. Penn is the typical elitist. He and his kind can own anything they want, but we hard working folk in flyover country must obey what they say.

        1. avatar Cliff H says:

          He can also own Cherlize Theron if he wants to, which none of us even have a snowball’s chance of considering. And all it cost him was whatever he will pay to replace those guns when she moves on to the next “Bad Boy” on her list.

          And the further contempt of all of us, many of whom had no liking for him anyway.

      2. avatar Ing says:

        Right. These guys don’t have to buy guns. They can buy people who have guns. (The rest of us proles are SOL.)

    2. avatar blakdawg says:

      Not only did he own a firearm, he had a license to carry concealed in California, issued from a SF Bay Area city, which is very uncommon – especially for people with a history of assault, reckless driving, and marijuana use.

      At least at one time, he’s documented as owning a .38 Special revolver and a 9mm Glock, though they were both lost when his car was stolen in Berkeley in 2001.

      1. avatar bobmcd says:

        “… lost when his car was stolen …”

        And the rest are at the bottom of the bay after that tragic boating accident.

    3. avatar Mike H says:

      Believe it … Penn even has a CCW permit .

  4. avatar PeterK says:

    No. All the no. I’m married anyway. But even if not: NO. Heck no.

    I’m good, thanks. Bitter clinger and all that. ;p

  5. avatar Dickie J says:

    Yes. Yes I would. Then I would buy new ones. Double win.

  6. avatar Kyle says:

    Short answer: Nope.

    I would love to have a debate with her though on the gun issue. Also, Sean Penn is about as insanely far left-wing as they come. I am surprised he owned any guns, but I do not think he was really a “gun guy” if he’s willing to give them up so fast because of Charlize Theron.

    1. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

      he also was buddies with a militaristic left wing dictator.. . . . Chavez

  7. avatar DrVino says:

    Why? There is nothing she can do for me that my wife hasn’t.
    Plus, my wife loves guns.
    Sean Penn is a mental case.

    1. avatar crndl says:

      “cowardly killing machines…?” says more about the operator than the machines

      1. avatar slicer87 says:

        In that case it is better to be a live and armed coward than a dead, unarmed hero.

  8. avatar Steve in MD says:

    Tough question.

    I vote no.

  9. avatar Noishkel says:

    I… I mean…. ….. I’m not even going to dignify this asinine question with a response.

  10. avatar surlycmd says:

    No. I am no longer willing to do dumb stuff for pu$$y.

    1. avatar DrVino says:

      Bravo.

    2. avatar crndl says:

      +1, easy question to answer…no

  11. avatar Bob says:

    Negative…she’s probably only marginal in bed anyway. Now a harem of cloned versions subservient to my “needs”, well then yes, that’s a fair trade.

    Now that the snarky comments are out of the way, in real relationship the other person doesn’t try to change the core values of the person they love.

    Smooth off rough edges, yes, reshape completely, no.

    if they do, we’ll then they don’t actually love YOU now do they?

    1. avatar Kyle in CT says:

      Heh, I’m sure lots of significant others would be happy to hear that that they are the emotional equivalent of a dremel tool . . .

      1. avatar PNG says:

        Well, better than a sledgehammer or a smelter, wouldn’t you say?

    2. avatar bozo says:

      But then, I would undoubtedly learn of this harem & relieve you of your Theron’s via armed force & reprogram them (to serve my needs) anyway. So… damned if you do, damned if you don’t. ;P

  12. avatar Brian says:

    No way in hell

  13. avatar ST says:

    Considering Sean Penn’s documented misuse of his firearms in the past, we should perhaps be grateful to Ms Theron.One less IGOTD waiting to happen.

    This also speaks to a broader problem I’ve seen .I’m not married, but many of my friends are or are in committed relationships.The problem is that once things get serious in terms of family building, their women turn into mini Sara Brady’s and demand their man disarm-and at once.No compromise, no negotiation.I’ve seen this effect on a smaller scale with an ex, who tried to tell me I’d forever be limited to two guns.Yet, during the first month she even went shooting with me when I did.

    Once the girl flipped she went back to the curb I got her from, but I wonder why women seem to do that .

    Any words from the older and wiser crowd here about Spousal Sara Brady Syndrome?

    1. avatar DrVino says:

      Because many women see men as tools and means to implement their life plan.
      Finding a husband is like filling an employment position for them.
      It’s not about the two of you. It’s about her.
      Whether that’s social conditioning or innate female nature is irrelevant to the fact that the way many women act can only be explained by what I postulate.

      1. avatar William Burke says:

        Very good analysis, Vino.

      2. avatar Avid Reader says:

        As a happily divorced male that managed to keep my man card, that is so true.

        Although my ex did give me a Ruger P90 for Christmas one year.

    2. avatar JR says:

      Haven’t had that experience with my wife; She’s a highly educated medical professional that works with children. In fact, she’s looking to buy a new concealment handgun. And, she encourages the teaching of our two children to shoot and handle firearms safely.

      Choose wisely and carefully up front is the best advice I can give. Can’t say why they’d change, though.

    3. avatar Pulatso says:

      You want to avoid that? Marry the daughter of a gun guy. My wife grew up helping her dad handload ammo. She once came up to me drooling over a Ruger Service Six and she told me “If you don’t buy it, I will punch you”. Her favorite Christmas present this year was the new 9 round mags for her LC9. As long as I’m not skipping the mortgage payment or running up a credit card, my wife has no problem with more guns, as long as she gets to pick what we buy from time to time.

      1. avatar detroiter says:

        X2! Married the daughter of an ffl. Great plan. Only, I NEEEDED to buy a modern sporting rifle to not be outgunned in my own home! Tough life, isn’t it!?

        Love it when I ask my wife if I should buy more ammo/guns/accessories and she says “you can never have too much”!

    4. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

      ummm, my wife doesn’t care where I smoke cigars (even in the house), is ok with my guns (and went and got her CCW so she can shooting with other stay at home moms), and called me a wuss when I didn’t go to her cousin’s bachelor party years ago (I was sick) since there were gonna be a lot of high class strippers. She doesn’t care about what I buy as long as the bills get paid and she can fly home to see her mother every other month. No – you just need a better selection process.

    5. avatar 505markf says:

      My now wife, then girlfriend, got onto me about guns a couple of times while dating. I didn’t take it personally and she eventually went shooting with me and the buds several times. She still doesn’t enjoy it, but tolerates the money and time I spend involved in shooting. That is good enough, sometimes. We are about to celebrate our 30th anniversary. One thing I have learned is that accepting a person does not mean agreeing with them about everything. As long as both parties can honestly tolerate each others interests, things can work out just fine.

      At one point – I was down to only one rifle, a Ruger 10/22, by then having sold off all the others to pay bills for kiddos and such, and she tried to hardball me with a statement along the likes of “choose one, me or the gun.” I just looked at her for maybe 30 seconds, saying nothing. I recall my eventual response was something like, “do you really want to find out which way I’d go?” It still comes up sometimes when I add another gun to the horde I have (they get lonely and need company), and I just give her that cold look when she asks me, “when will it be enough?” I admit I did get angry once and then pilled every pair of shoes and every handbag from our closet onto the dining room table and asked her the same question.

      The odd thing is that many women, my wife included, simply do not, or cannot, respect a man that lets them push him around. I think that is most particularly true of strong women. That doesn’t mean that anyone must be subservient to anyone else, but who the hell can really respect someone who’d give up on the big things? I think strong people do best with strong partners, as long as they aren’t celebrities, though that doesn’t mean smooth sailing all the time.

          And you drops out the wrong grade.

        2. avatar Jeff says:

          it was a smart phone post, Drew.

    6. avatar Jeff says:

      dont have that problem. my wife just asked me the other day, “do we have enough ammo?”

      here she is at three months pregnant.

    7. avatar OODAloop says:

      We did just the opposite when the “bundle of joy” was on it’s way. We gunned up, bought a new (larger) safe and got my wife up to speed with a CCW. When the second arrived we moved to the country so the whole family could enjoy shooting and hunting off the back deck…

  14. avatar Nine says:

    Dafuq!?

    Hells naw!

  15. avatar LongPurple says:

    Any predictions on how long these two will be together, and how long before all the “sacrificed” guns will be replaced after the breakup?

  16. avatar TheBear says:

    No.

    She is too old and not that great to begin with.

    …And that is one hell of a life style change to require of someone else just to continue a relationship.

    I know girls who have dumped guys for saying they’d like if they’d (the girl) would wear a skirt once in a while…

    1. avatar Jeff says:

      well she’s jewish so RF just assumes everyone has the hots for her

  17. avatar DisThunder says:

    Soo….Her mother used a gun to save her life? But she doesn’t like them, because that killed her unhinged dad. Celebrities are confusing.

    Sean Penn turned in an absolutely amazing performance in Mystic River, and I don’t think I’ve seen him in anything since. Therefore, Sean Penn——————————————Radar.

    I can’t judge him too harshly, though. I’ve done some pretty stupid stuff for the nookie. Just not this stupid.

    1. avatar styrgwillidar says:

      yeah, imagine no guns and Dad breaking through the door with just his bare hands, or hammer, or knife or ‘blunt instrument’ or whatever. I don’t think it would have turned out as well for the ladies…

    2. avatar bozo says:

      *Celebrities are confused.

  18. avatar 7.62x54r says:

    I think not. My wife performs every function Ms. Theron is capable of and is a good cook too.

  19. avatar Patrick says:

    I would give up all my guns, no second thoughts, for $1.3 million from Piers Morgan. Because, lots more guns!

    1. avatar Old Ben turning in grave says:

      Yeah, didn’t say he was donating that money to any cause, did he? That’s vaguely implied, but not stated.

  20. avatar Matt says:

    Man I heard the whip crack all the way in CT.

    Also, F*CK NO.

  21. avatar Taylor Tx says:

    Already found my soulmate and shes not a koolaid drinking liberal Cee yoU Next Tuesday 🙂

    Sean Penn, man of no spine or intestinal fortitude, please explain to me how an inanimate object can have any sort of emotion, cowardice for example?

    Could it be that Ms Theron’s father was a POS human who decided his family’s life was forfeit? Might be be the kind of turd that would chose a knife, hammer or bare hands if he was already motivated to terminate his offspring if the first place?

  22. avatar 2Wheels says:

    I won’t give up my guns, my dog, my motorcycle, or my alcohol for a woman.

    Why yes I’m single, why do you ask?

    1. avatar TheBear says:

      I have guns, a dog, a motorcycle, a bunch of booze in the cabinet… and a woman.

      I guess I am living the dream, eh? lol

      1. avatar 2Wheels says:

        Haha sounds like you are!

      2. avatar Troutbum5 says:

        High five dude. Good woman. Sounds like you’ve got all you need. I got lucky that way too.

    2. avatar JR says:

      Any woman worth having would not even dream of asking you to change any of that. If she’s into you…that’s you, so that’s what she gets.

      Said another way:

      You don’t ask, “Honey, may I go shooting today?”

      Instead, you say, “I’m going shooting today. Would you like to come?”

      Don’t mean that in an ugly, obnoxious way, just…”Here’s who I am and what I like to do. Take it or leave it.”

      My wife and I have been together over 20 years (married 17). Our first date was going shooting at an indoor range. Though she grew up shooting long guns, she had never shot a handgun before that day. A few months later, I took her to buy her first handgun.

  23. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    Not a chance. No way.
    Never. Huh-uh.
    Nope.

    Isn’t this putz one of the morons who said he would move out of the country if bush got re-elected?
    Why is he still here?

  24. avatar Carry.45 says:

    Hell no. Waste of a QOTD. But a funny story all the same.

  25. avatar lolinski says:

    No.

    If you have to give up the things you like for another person, then maybe they aren’t the right one.

    Besides I can do better, maybe not in the money department but in the looks department definately.

  26. avatar BillF says:

    Nope. And if I started second-guessing myself, I’d just watch her in Monster again.

    1. avatar William Burke says:

      Say what you may, but that was a stunning performance.

  27. avatar Martin says:

    Nope I would not . Pity I lost them all in a fishing accident anyway

  28. avatar Paul W says:

    ….well, I can’t wear a gun while boning, so maybe for 45 seconds?

    1. avatar HamChuck says:

      Dude! Two words: Ankle Holster.

  29. avatar Rob says:

    Sure, 1 night 1 gun, I’ll probably get sick of her before I am out of Mosins.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      This is a fantastic answer.

  30. avatar Shawn says:

    She must have a magical vagina. For a man to 1. change his ways 2. get rid of his gun, it must be really special or she is into some really freaky and I mean freaky stuff.

  31. avatar Old Ben turning in grave says:

    No.

    And arms that were in the hands of a hard-core leftist have been destroyed? I won’t lose any sleep over that.

  32. avatar DrVino says:

    Anybody remember all the photog-punching Sean was famous for in his Madonna days?

  33. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

    I’d give up a hi-point.

    1. avatar styrgwillidar says:

      I’d give up an RG- because it was the only gun I’ve been around that was so unsafe and poorly made I couldn’t have sold it to someone and still looked myself in the mirror.

      But she’d have to accept that I’d never turn in, sell, or dispose of any others. Ever.

      1. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

        I’d be gone before she woke up anyway.

    2. avatar OODAloop says:

      I’ll see your Hi-Point and raise you a Lorcin .380…

      1. avatar Not So 1337 says:

        I’ll see your .380 and raise you a .22 zip-gun.

  34. avatar mark_anthony_78 says:

    I think we should make a new law that any celebrity/politician claiming they are living a “gun free” lifestyle should have to do so by parading down MLK Boulevard in the nearest city holding a big billboard stating that fact WITHOUT the luxury of armed bodyguards 3 feet away from them.

  35. avatar Simon says:

    Give up my guns for Charliz Theron? NO. Any man who would give up his guns for that whack is already 1) out of his mind and 2) effeminate.

  36. avatar C says:

    As I said on the forum, no, but I’d hide them at a friend’s place until I’d had my fun.

  37. avatar Neez says:

    No way, she’s flat chested. Now, some other celebs out there yes, but not her. She’s starting to look haggerty and old.

  38. avatar KCK says:

    cowardly killing machines??????????

    So I guess all the men that landed on the Normandy and Pacific Islands were facing and using cowardly weapons???

  39. avatar tdiinva says:

    There are enough alternative celebrity fantasies that are known to like guns that I could pass on Charlize so why compromise?

  40. avatar Dracon1201 says:

    Give up my guns? For her??? LOL!! Heck, I told my own girlfriend to go screw herself when she begged me to get rid of them. Then I said she could learn to shoot and will most likely enjoy it, or she could stay the Hell away from my hobby and not say a word. It’s been 2 years, she hasn’t said a word except that she will go shooting with me soon, and we’re still together.

    1. avatar Soccerchainsaw says:

      Do you think that a man with honesty, conviction and integrity might be more attractive than a pushover/wet dishrag?

      1. avatar 505markf says:

        Always. Though sometimes the dishrag is what some women want.

        1. avatar JR says:

          Temporarily.

  41. avatar Tim U says:

    1. Married to someone who supports my firearm ownership, so no.

    2. Even if I was single, she’s too old and sorry, the guns don’t go. I might hide them or pretend they’re not around if I was young and dumb and not looking for anything serious, but the guns stay.

  42. avatar Jomo says:

    I too experienced the whole ‘I’m going to take over your life.’ thing. Not once but twice. Both times the answer was no. You can’t be happy if you lose who you are, and that’s true for women as well as men (cause men do it too, just about different things). Mr. Penn has just proven himself to be the fool we already believed he was. (Speak and remove all doubt and all that stuff…)

  43. avatar Col. Angus says:

    I’d need about a month for comparison testing……

  44. avatar Ing says:

    No.

    And…meh. I can’t bring myself to care much what two celebrity thesps do with themselves. I’m sure Sean Penn can buy all the “cowardly killing machines” he wants after they break up.

    And I don’t give a damn how famous or rich or pretty…no, actually, I do, because you put all three together, and it’s a recipe for crazy…but a woman that demands that I change who I am and give up what I love to suit her tastes isn’t worth the tiniest bit of my time.

  45. avatar cigardog says:

    I wonder if he still has his Marin County CCW permit, or if he gave it up after some of his guns were stolen out of his car?

    Nope. Not for any woman. Made that clear with the wife while still dating. She never had a problem with it, which was good, because that was a dealbreaker.

  47. avatar Prisoner Number 7 says:

    To answer the question, No. But to be fair to the magnificent Ms. Theron, she does not seem to have demanded that Sean get rid of his guns, he volunteered and it seems that he is keeping all of his guns that are in other countries. It seems more of a publicity stunt.

  48. avatar Pulatso says:

    Lemme ‘splain…No, there is too much, lemme sum up: AW HELL NO.

  49. avatar Jason says:

    I think she’s rather ugly, especially after she’s the movie monster. Number two, giving up my guns AND getting my nuts put on the chopping block, loose loose situation. Lastly, she is a first class hypocrite, anyone who profits from a “gun movie” and proclaims to be anti gun, Arnie , sly, ECT, is a first class hypocrite!

  50. avatar JaredFromTampa says:

    Ha ha, that has to be a joke. Would I give up my collection of shooting irons that took me years and thousands of dollars to accumulate, many of which have significant sentimental value for a leftist actress with annoying accent who’s not even as hot as the chick I’m already married to? No. Hells no.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Your wife reads this blog, doesn’t she?

      1. avatar Jared-Tampa says:

        Ha ha, no, she reads baking blogs and entertainment weekly. She actually for really reals is (IMO) hotter than Charlize Theron; she’s 6 feet tall, German, blond hair blue eyes, size zero with 36 Ds. She can also out shoot me most of the time, even with a Mosin carbine. Her accent is for the most part less annoying than a South African’s.

        …I might give up a brick of .22lr for a three way though.

        1. avatar jwm says:

          A brick of .22lr can buy you a wife in some places. Won’t even have to give her back to her husband even when the ammo’s gone.

  51. avatar DrewR55 says:

    Like most I choose option C) I married a lovely woman who enjoys my hobby and believes in self defense.

    I would not give up something that mattered to me for anyone or anything.

  52. avatar PavePusher says:

    C.T. Hot, but empirically dumb. No.

  53. avatar John in AK says:

    I see it this way: Anyone who would sleep with Sean Penn is not someone with whom I would wish to exchange precious bodily fluids. I would thus not be willing to give up anything at all for said person.

    1. avatar Brian in WI says:

      I have a similar issue with Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob…no interest after that.

  54. No way….I’ve already got the guns I want, for now, and even better than that, the woman I’ve always dreamed of.

  55. avatar Gregolas says:

    Sean Penn is a communist and an IQ waiting to happen. Theron ahs fallen into the logical fallacy that Mark Twain warned of: ” We should what there is to learn from an experience-and no more. A cat that sits on a hot stove lid will never sit on one again. But, she will never sit on a cold one either!”
    My rule: If a woman can’t think, the looks don’t count.
    I’ll keep my guns Charlize.

  56. avatar Marcus Aurelius says:

    “Getting married for sex is like buying a 747 for the free peanuts.” (Jeff Foxworthy)

  58. avatar Kyle in CT says:

    Absolutely not, because the kind of women that would ask that kind of thing are a bad choice anyway. These are the kind of people who piss and moan about how their boyfriend/husband does all these “guy-things” at the beginning of a relationship, then once they’ve brow-beaten their significant other into caring about coasters and getting some sorry excuse for a dog that he’s ashamed to walk around the neighborhood, piss and moan again about how emasculated their boyfriend/husband is. Pick a real woman with a real personality. I think Ron White said it best:

    “If her belly gets too big, she can get a tummy tuck and have a belly like a cheerleader. If her vision goes bad, you can have LASIK surgery and have 20/20 vision. If her hearing goes bad, they can install a device in her ear that will give you hearing as clear as it was the day you were born. But let me tell you something, folks: You can’t fix stupid. There’s not a pill you can take; there’s not a class you can go to. Stupid is forever.”

  59. avatar Rambeast says:

    Once upon a time, a man asked an extremely beautiful woman to marry him. The woman said NO. So he rode motorcycles, hunted, fished, raced cars, dated ladies half his age, and drank scotch.

    He never heard b!tching, he never paid child support, or alimony. He banged strippers, kept his house and guns, ate spam, potato chips, and beans; and farted whenever he wanted to. He was never cheated on while he was at work. He had tons of money in the bank and he left the toilet seat up.

    …and the man lived happily ever after.

    TL;DR

    No.

    1. avatar William Burke says:

      I can’t fart whenever I want to! Is there something wrong with me?

      1. avatar rosignol says:

        Yes. Eat more fiber and veggies, they’re good for you (and you never know when Shannon Watts will decide to visit).

  60. avatar jwm says:

    Well Sean was always crazy. Now we find out he’s a bigger pussy than Charlize. No, I don’t give up my guns or any of my freedoms or rights for a woman. Fortunately my keeper wife hasn’t made any such foolish demands.

  61. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

    the pu**y ain’t that good. . . . . . and way too many miles on the odometer. . . .

  62. avatar Hal J. says:

    “Everybody in South Africa has a gun,”

    Really? My father and I took a trip to South Africa last year (photo safari), and the owner of the company told me that he’d been trying to get a permit for a .375 H&H for over 2 years, and still wasn’t allowed to purchase it because the paperwork hadn’t gone through yet. One of the guides told me that his wife & baby experienced a home invasion just a week before I’d arrived, and that he’d been trying to get a permit for a pistol for the last year…to no avail.

  63. avatar Jay says:

    The woman whom I eventually married gave me the ultimatum “your guns or me.” I said no and turns out she was bluffing. Since then she has grown more accepting.

    1. avatar William Burke says:

      Why do they DO that? And I’ve seen and experienced this thing – “you’re perfect; I love you just the way you are!”

      Until you’re married, and they IMMEDIATELY set about trying to change everything about you.

  64. avatar Sab says:

    I’m gay, so the answer is no.

  65. avatar ensitue says:

    I just realized this is about sean penn
    Sean’s dad was a proud, gun owning, Soviet Agent (and Traitor) who was Black Listed

  66. avatar Jared says:

    No, if a pretty woman is stupid and illogical….. There are more fish in the sea.

  67. avatar Alex Peters says:

    Okay…so she’s beautiful, worth millions, 38 years old, and has never been married. Something’s got to be wrong with her.

    1. avatar Rambeast says:

      This.

      1. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

        fortunately, she has not bred yet

          Going on a quest to bed every gun-hating MILF (or wanna-be)? Who knows, you’ll probably get really bored with Shannon in 10 days, two weeks tops…

  68. avatar John Boch says:

    F no.

    The woman is obviously mentally irrational as she hates guns even though her life was saved by one as a child.

    In my experience in my younger, single years, wimmenz with supermodel good looks are often nuttier than squirrel turds and that describes Charlize to a “T”heron.

    John

    1. avatar Alex Peters says:

      That’s the truly ironic part. Had there been no guns, her drunk father would’ve just beaten her and her mother to death.

  69. avatar PNG says:

    Not worth it. Giving up weapons is beyond the line know matter who the girl/woman is.

    She’s also very good at talking out of both sides of her mouth. I wonder what her other talents are.

  70. avatar Michael B. says:

    No.

    I don’t date leftists and I’ve never dated an anti-gun conservative or independent girl.

    Plus, I don’t listen well. I do what I want to do when I want to do it and I’ve really never had a complaint.

    Women like independent guys who have a spine. Crazy bitches, on the other hand, like whipped house slaves they can control and cheat on.

    I have neither the time nor the patience to deal with someone who wants to control me. If a woman wants to be my partner I’m completely fine with that, but I don’t change who I am for anyone.

    1. avatar Tom says:

      I raised my kids never to date leftists or anti gunners. Besides the vast majority of left wing women are butt ugly. Even if there is a attractive one here and there, their ideology makes them ugly to the bone

      1. avatar Michael B. says:

        They are also typically self-absorbed neurotic messes.

        I agree with you, they can be physically attractive but as soon as they start up with their insane secular religion nonsense I am out of there.

        I have had much luck with both politically independent and conservative women.

  71. avatar Andy says:

    When I met my wife, before things got going heavy, I told her “I’ve got guns and I’m in the National Guard, you got a problem with either one you can leave now.” Miss Theron can take a hike, but I thought Sean Penn is a douche before I knew he would give up his guns.

  72. avatar benny says:

    Everyone is all like “if I was in my 20’s my answer would be yes.”
    Guys…I’m 23…and straight..and would go after a Dame with the best of em.
    But not no, not hell no, but F–K no. My guns aren’t going anywhere. If the government ain’t getting them, what chance in Hades does a woman have?!

  73. avatar racer88 says:

    I can have Charlize Theron any time I want (and I don’t have to give up any possessions). I just close my eyes, and she’s there! I think it was a Ray Romano bit from his stand-up days, “I’ve got a cast of thousands in there.”

    1. avatar DougR says:

      Amen Racer, amen.

  74. avatar TNMatt says:

    While I do think she’s attractive, no. I’ve dated women I thought were more attractive and didn’t mind the fact that I had a slight ballistic addiction. Plus, why would you start getting serious with some one who obviously believes so differently.(obviously not an issue between those two) My guess is he’s never come back from I Am Sam

  75. avatar T says:

    When the s@#! hits the fan is that woman gonna protect you, no! So why the hell do I need to give up my tool because she’s has a fear of what I have? As for Sean, he’s should get sex change stat!

  76. avatar RaynBama says:

    Penn is a Hollyweird pu$$y.

  77. avatar MiketheHopsFarmer says:

    How about using the guns to get Ms. Theron?

  78. avatar JoshuaS says:

    How come that clon gets to even on a gun? Felony domestic assault, plead down to misdemeanor domestic assault.

    domestic violence. In California, you need a governor’s pardon for restoration of gun rights…guess he is privileged after all

    Oh, and the answer is no. She is too old for me anyways,

  79. avatar Rick says:

    Annnd no.

    Guns will get you through times of no pu$$y better than pu$$y will get you times of no guns.
    [apologies to Freewheelin’ Franklin of The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers.]

  80. avatar Mike says:

    I’ll admit that I wouldn’t mind getting to know her a bit better, but I wouldn’t give anything up to do so. Besides, I’ve always been more interested in Milla Jovovich, and it looks like she is fairly pro-gun as well. No contest there.

  81. avatar Jim Jones says:

    No. Any woman who puts these kind of conditions on the ability to spend time with her should send a man’s red flag detectors going crazy. I don’t care if it’s motorcycles, guns, or spending time with your buddies. Somebody who truly cares about you does not put conditions on their love. That’s the kind of thing manipulative children do.

    1. avatar Rob.G says:

      Very well said, Sir!

  82. avatar DougR says:

    I would rather sleep with an ugly girl that likes guns! I can’t stand most of the hollywood assholes, just can’t stand them.

  83. avatar Justin_GA says:

    Women who make you change for them aren’t worth it in the end.

  84. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

    I hear she’s difficult to work with, in terms of diva behavior, so I’d pass.

    I’d pass, anyway, though, as firearms represent far more than the implements themselves. If we’re incompatible on that, then we’re guaranteed to be too far apart philosophically across the board and wouldn’t be worth putting up with.

  85. avatar NoThanksSean says:

    I like how he qualifies the statement that it’s just the guns here in the “continental United States” apparently she will let him have guns in foreign lands.

    For someone who hates capitalism selling 65ish guns (even in statue form) for 1.4 million is a pretty high markup (each gun worth about 21,538.46) and no mention of donating that money to charity. This man’s hypocrisy has no bounds.

    Plus it seems the cops are just waiting around to escort him from place to place so he doesn’t “need” a gun now does he?

  87. avatar Ken Hagler says:

    Any time someone wants you to give up your guns–and it doesn’t matter who they are or what they say their reasons are–you need to stop and ask yourself, “What does this person intend to do to me that he or she wouldn’t be able to do if I was armed?”

  88. avatar Alpo says:

    LOL, hell no.

    To quote the ever quotable John Witherspoon:

    “Now Sean, I hear a girl down at the office got you p*ssy-whipped…
    You got to reverse it. Don’t be p*ssy-whipped, whip that p*ssy. Like this here, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang.”

  89. avatar Jim Scrummy says:

    Nah. I’ve never been a fan of her. Now that she’s with that stupid lefty who thinks that lefty dictators are a-ok, makes me even less willing to see any crappy movie with her in it.

  90. avatar Eli Stein says:

    Back in the 80s Sean Penn posed in front of his burnt out Hollywood hills home with either a Mac 10 or Uzi with a can on it. He claimed it was full auto and he would defend his property from looters who wanted to take advantage of the fire that burned dozens of high end homes. He was living in a camper on the site and flashing his fancy zip gun back then, because back then it was cool to defend your property and now its cool to pay bodyguards to do it for you.

    Good luck finding that picture, I have scoured the internet for it and cannot find it. It was in People magazine I do remember that.

  91. avatar Haiku Guy says:

    If my girlfriend asked,
    I’d get a storage locker,
    ‘Cause it will not last.

    A request like that is the thin edge of the wedge. It is the first round of neutering the independent male. If that is her agenda, eventually she is going to ask for something that you would not be willing to give up, even for a little while.

    When that day comes, your old friends will be waiting for you in that storage locker, no hard feelings and none the worse for wear…

    As for Sean Penn, he’ll feel pretty foolish about the time she dumps him….

  108. avatar Excedrine says:

    No.

    In fact, Hell no.

    My integrity is not for sale, for one thing, and for another I definitely wouldn’t give it up for some Boer Hollyweird hypocrite who cannot see the fact that it was indeed a gun that saved her scrawny little hide to start with — and it is in fact more men with guns that continue to protect her sorry ass. She probably pays them all of jack shit, too.

    I wouldn’t sell myself short for a weak-willed and willfully ignorant “strong” woman like her that purposefully debases herself with such blatant intellectual stupidity and dishonesty.

    Sean Penn is a fucking idiot all ’round to begin with, and just as big of a loser hypocrite as she is. Two conceited morons being a perfect fit for each other? No surprise here.

  109. avatar Todd says:

    Nope!!! I will bet she will leave him in 6 months of less. He’ll beat her up and she’ll wish she had a gun. Penn hasn’t been in a long term stable relationship in years and with he notorious temper……..

  110. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    When we were dating, my wife didn’t mind me shooting, reloading, hunting, etc.
    When we were newlyweds, everything was great.
    One day I was in the reloading room, finishing some rounds for a match the next day. She steps in and says, ” Honey, now that we are married, isn’t it time you sold your guns and safe and reloading stuff and bullets and fishing poles and reels, and stuff?”
    I guess I had an absolute look of horror on my face, cause she looks at me and asks “what’s the matter?”
    I says “for a minute there you sounded like my ex-wife”

    She screams, “you didn’t tell me you were divorced!!!”

    I said, “I’m not…”

  111. avatar Will says:

    If you’re willing to give up everything for a woman, you got it bad… but what do you got… a case of overactive hormones willing to do anything for a roll in the hay? Feeling that way is one thing, she demanding it is another.

    If a woman wants you to give up your firearms, and you happen to LIKE firearms in the first place, and she knows it, just may not be the right one for you. She seems to be more interested in herself than you.

  112. avatar Rich Grise says:

    ” Would You Give Up Your Guns for Charlize Theron?”

    Who?

  113. avatar Earl says:

    No, and she isn’t living in South Africa nor intending to return there soon, is she?

    She acts well, looks fine, but she has only the fool reasons for worrying about guns, very personal ones. My mother never shot my father, and my father never tried to shoot me, nor any of my siblings. We have always treated firearms with respect, but treat humans with even more respect. Try to find that respect in South Africa. There are little patches of it.

  114. avatar David T says:
