When it comes to guns, the word “ghost” doesn’t just apply to aperture sights, or even to California State Senator Kevin de Leon making a fool of himself. It now is also being used to describe what was done to anti-gun Marxist sympathizer, wife beater and failed “action hero” Sean Penn by his ex-main squeeze, actress Charlize Theron . . .
“Charlize is reported to have ended the relationship by ‘ghosting’ Sean, aka disappearing from his life without a word,” Daily Mail reported. “A source told Us Weekly:’ Charlize wasn’t responding to his calls and texts. She just cut it off.’”
Gee, that’s too bad, especially since Penn made such a big deal of giving up his 65 guns to please Charlize, pledging to have them melted down into a sculpture. Still, it’s probably easier on all concerned to transfer them (through an FFL with background checks?) than to leave them in your car for street criminals to steal.
Besides, if you’re a guy who has “Hitleresque bodyguards,” you don’t need an impossible-to-get-for-the-masses concealed carry permit. And who better to call guns “cowardly killing machines” than a wife beater with a baseball bat?
How Penn was able to keep his guns (or his bats!) after that — what with the Lautenberg confiscation diktat on the books and his fellow citizen disarmament zealots screaming “domestic violence” every chance they get to strip us of our rights without due process — is still somewhat of a mystery. Also unclear is why someone admittedly stumping for “a gun-less society” would make a movie called “The Gunman,” where he gets to show everybody what an “action hero” he is. Or he would have, had anybody actually gone to see it.
Think about how pathetic it is for a man to give up his guns because his demanding girlfriend (who has no aversion to making money off them herself) wants him to. Whatever happened to accepting your partner for who they are? Talk about being whipped.
So with the incentive to fawn and please Charlize gone — now that she’s given up the “ghost” — will Penn go out and buy more guns? If for no other reason than to rebel against someone he abased himself for, and it still wasn’t enough?
Another noteworthy inconsistency to note: Look at all the photos on the bottom of the Mail article of Charlize puffing away on a cigarette. Penn is also a cigarette smoker, who said he quit, and then was seen breaking French law “by lighting up twice during a press conference.” And get this: He quit smoking for Charlize.
It’s relevant not only as an insight into his constancy of commitment and self-control, but also because, per the CDC (the same group that wanted to see guns “dirty, deadly and banned” along the lines of cigarettes):
Cigarette smoking causes about one of every five deaths in the United States each year. Cigarette smoking is estimated to cause the following:
More than 480,000 deaths annually (including deaths from secondhand smoke)
278,544 deaths annually among men (including deaths from secondhand smoke)
201,773 deaths annually among women (including deaths from secondhand smoke)
Look, if you smoke and enjoy it, I’m not judging you. If I knew and cared about you, I’d prefer you give up cigarettes, but ultimately, ain’t none of us gettin’ out alive anyway, and whatever gets you through the day is your business.
I’m merely pointing out Penn’s and Theron’s priorities seem a bit curious, to say the least. Considering the political sympathies of so many of Hollywood’s lottery winners, that isn’t really all that surprising.
