“Julianne Moore is calling upon her fellow actors to collectively use their voices in support of gun safety,” wochit Entertainment reports. “Partnering up with Everytown for Gun Safety, which is the largest U.S. gun violence prevention organization, Moore has launched the new Everytown Creative Council. The new council is currently made up of 79 members from the creative community, including Steve Carrell, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lawrence.” Before you point out that Hollywood actors have armed bodyguards, I’d like to point out that . . .

there’s no need for a 50’s-style Congressional Communist witch hunt. The “creative community” churns out extremely effective pro-gun movies in their thousands. Movies, video games and books (stories printed on paper) where good guys with guns defeat bad guys with guns, RPGs, tanks, helicopters and nuclear bombs. The creative community’s contribution to the pro-gun movement is priceless.

If pampered creatives living in La-La Land and The Big Apple are a tad hypocritical in their gun politics, well, we can cut them some slack. If not click here to leave a message on their Facebook page, which won’t be deleted because creatives are all about free expression. As I wrote on the page, the Second Amendment protects the first.

  1. Does this mean Ms. Moore won’t accept any more royalties checks for her role in “Hannibal”? Remember the scene where the outdoor market gets shot up and she kills the woman holding the baby?

  2. One thing about it–if it says “Everytown” in the name, anyone who’s paying attention will know exactly where the message is coming from.
    BTW, would that be THIS Jennifer Lawrence?

    • Yup, the same Jennifer Lawrence that stars in the This Is What Happens to a Disarmed Populace: Their Children Are Ritually Sacrificed In Bloodsports movies (a.k.a. The Hunger Games.)

      There are a lot of probably unintentionally pro-civilian armament themes in places you might not expect. Early on in The Hunger Games, Katniss carefully retrieves her hunting bow and knife out of hiding, because anyone armed in the districts would be considered a threat to Panem. In Harry Potter, when Voldemort and his Death Eaters take over, they immediately stop teaching Defense Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts, and also confiscate wands from any undesirables. Like I said, these are probably unintended, but the point is still there, if the reader is able to think it through.

      • Hunger Games , as I understand it, and Apocalypto, which I have actually seen, are two obvious expressions of the theme that the central government nannies are massively exploiting the ordinary folks just to keep themselves in power and luxury. But still, most folks don’t seem to get it.

        • @Another Robert: Don’t think that most actors and actresses are known for their high I.Q.s. The hypocrisy of this crowd is astounding. One more reason not to watch their movies.

        • I’m wondering if this is going to turn out to be another Mayors Against Illegal Guns type thing, where they’re telling these celebs that they’re just about “gun safety” (heck, I’m for safe gun handling), so they get more names for their list, and then come out with their full-on anti-gun, we-want-them-all-confiscated message later.

    • Don’t know the context of that thumbnail in the funeral but the way she is holding that shotgun is classic. Just like every boyfriend/husband that gives a girl a gun and no instruction.

    • I don’t have a Facebook account so I’m not sure, but isn’t 5 like a little low? I mean, I’ve heard of pages dedicated to muskrat farts that have more like.

    • are we sure that its even real seems like a parody. even where the discription is it pro guns lol all the posts are pro gun and the pictures are pro lol

  3. “Partnering up with Everytown for Gun Safety, which is the largest U.S. gun violence prevention organization”

    Blatantly incorrect, the NRA is the largest gun violence prevention organization, followed by the GOA I believe. Lawful carriers are I believe the most effective deterrent to any form of violence, shooting, assault, robbery, burglary, rape, kidnapping, carjacking, you name it. If they doubt it they can ask their armed security personnel.

  4. Wow… gotta love the big pretty Eagle and the 2nd amendment plastered all over the place… bit disingenuous I would say,.

  5. Every time some hollywood actor releases their political opinion on anti gun bs, yet they make millions of dollars making films about the good guy with a gun vrs the bad guy with a gun. I’ll make a donation to multiple gun rights groups instead of spending my money on movie tickets.
    Drop the mic.

    • Back when Blockbuster was still a thing I did an informal survey one night – I counted the number of video cases on which the frontspiece picture to sell the movie included a gun of some sort.

      Result – about 43% if you did not include the children’s section.

  7. Sooooo…… the evil mastermind aka Shannon’s Sugar Daddy is finally expanding on the resounding success of his “demand a plan” video campaign. Does anyone remember how effectively that piece of unabashed hypocrisy altered public opinion in favor of more gun control?

    He must be switching his focus from failing to impact the political landscape to failing to change the cultural landscape.

  8. don’t forget – a lot of these “actors” are also habitual drug users and would be prohibited under form 4473. . . . me thinks they just want to thin the potential herd of threats to themselves.

    A quick glance at the list reveals a lot of people who would actually be disqualified from owning a firearm.

    • Anson Williams? “Guys, we got Potsie! That oughta turn the tide in our favor!”

      Sad to see Nick Offerman on that list, though. I always thought he was kind of a cool dude.

      • And Ralph Malph too (Don Most, right?) Damn, and there’s Ron Howard–so where’s Fonzie? Oh, that’s right, he’s already jumped the shark…Happy days…

        • I guess I was blinded by the fact that he has a full woodshop and makes some pretty nice stuff. It’s so rare that actors have any practical skills, I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    • Yeah, that’s quite a brain trust. Sad to see Jeff Bridges on that list, I thought The Dude was better than this.

  10. It wouldn’t surprise me if many of the actors aren’t very familiar with Everytown. I’m sure Everytown is spinning this so heavily as a “gun safety” thing that many of that people in support don’t actually know the true agenda. I’m also sure none of them will actually look into it and find out that they are supporting disarmament.

  11. Funny how ALL the comments on the FB page are from 2A supporters… Do the antis really want these people, especially the ones who promote gun violence through movies?

    Looks like it might be a case of hooking your horses to the wrong wagon…

  12. “Julianne Moore is calling upon her fellow actors to collectively use their voices in support of gun control,” And the sky is blue. Walt Disney thought that Hollyweird was full of commies and he probably was right. I really do not have much respect for Hollyweird as they really cannot come up with much original thinking in their films.

  13. She’s just mad that neither Brad Pitt or Vince Vaughn have given her the D. If they had, she’d be as gun-loving as anyone here.

  14. Not much surprising on that list. And how many have made millions making violent gun-filled movies? Oh right “acting”…at least J-Law looks good in this pictures all over the internet(you know the ones). She’s basically a hillbilly girl seduced by the dark side(like her new BBF slutty schumer). I’ll check out the FB page…

  15. I do not watch movies because I admire an actor’s IQ, rather I watch the movie because of entertainment value and an actor’s ability to portray a character and tell a story. If I were to watch a movie based on their politics or common sense, I would never go to the movies or watch any TV (which do less of both as I get older anyway). If these members of the “intellectual elite” and self appointed arbiter of moral, took seriously the loss of life, they would worry about the fact that cars kill and injure 3 times as many people than guns. But since everyone drives a car, no one thinks they are part of the problem. Many of these hypocrites count on armed bodyguards for their protection and do not mingle with the normal public nor are exposed to the same risks as regular civilians. They live very protected lives with a mindset that does not allow them to understand real life practical problems. Just like most politicians.

  16. Don’t these rich Hollywood types have ARMED body guards? If they want disarmament they should start by stopping the violence on the screen and with their body guards to set the tone and a good example.
    Thomas Jefferson’s letter to James Madison on January 30, 1787 have the last word: “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.” I have the right to feel safe and that includes carrying a loaded firearm. I have the right to protect myself and if you don’t like it tough $hit.
    The 2nd Amendment was put into the Constitution so the people could protect themselves from a corrupt government. No double standards put DC politicians on Obamacare and SS and take away their guns.Thanks for your support and vote.Pass the word. mrpresident2016.com
