Question of the Day: Boycott Anti-Gun Celebrities?

Marren Morris (courtesy glamour.com)

If you watched last night’s Grammy Awards for more than five minutes, you have a greater tolerance for social justice warfare than I do. The #metoo thing took center stage. Literally. Not to mention DACA dancing set to the beat of Trump bashing, featuring none-time Grammy Award nominee Hillary Clinton. I suppose it’s something of a blessing. Gun control wasn’t highlighted. That said . . .

The virulently anti-gun rights eds at Rolling Stone bent over backwards to put civilian disarmament in the Grammy spotlight. Like this:

On Sunday, during a conversation with Rolling Stone hours before the 2017 Grammy Awards, [singer Marin] Morris broke ranks with country music’s conservative wing once again.

“Having this open conversation about gun rights would be a start, [as well as] changing legislation,” she said, when asked to offer some potential solutions to America’s plague of mass shootings.

Changing legislation is like changing keys in a song, right? Maybe celebrities should STFU about guns and, while they’re not at it, ALL political topics.

I know: how could they feel good about themselves — and achieve an appropriate level of social status amongst Hollywood’s champagne socialists — if they don’t do something with their money and fame to save the world? And yes, there are pro-gun rights celebrities.

Meanwhile, boycott?

    Don’t know who this chick is, but she looks like she’s been hit in the face with a frying pan at least once in her life.

    1. avatar HandyDan says:

      That is a GOOD picture of her

    2. avatar RocketScientist says:

      It’s called Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. She has it, bad. It’t the only malady to cause all the following facial features/deformities, of which she has all: microcephaly (small head circumference), small palebral fissures (eye openings), epicanthic folds, low nasal bridge, flat and small mid-face, short nose depth, smooth philtrum (crease in the center of your upper lip), thin upper lip (at first glance hers looks full, but a closer look reveals thats just lipstick colored above the lip-line to give the appearance), and micrognathia (small chin). The only one we cant confirm due to her hair style is minor ear abnormalities, but that doesn’t occur in all cases so not as important from a diagnostic point of view. Either way, there’s very little doubt this girl’s momma drank heavily and regularly during her pregnancy, and this poor girls suffer from FAS. If you’ve got the facial features, then it’s severe enough you almost assuredly have some of the more significant mental/developmental deficits as well. Good for her she’s kinda cute so her poor emotional control, poor reasoning ability, and increased propensity for violence aren’t likely to negatively affect her quality of life too much.

          Those are some weird ears.

      Gave up on football last year, didn’t miss it. Gave up on hollywood years ago. Adding most music to my “no, just…no” list isn’t going to be hard either

    4. avatar Matt says:

      That’s hilarious but i would probably still hit it as long as she wasnt speaking.

  2. avatar Gordon in MO says:

    Rarely go to movies any more. Careful selection when I do.
    Don’t watch any of the “entertainment awards”, mostly left wing. Even some of the country music people are speaking up and that is usually not good for their success. I guess they don’t really understand their audience.

    1. avatar Gunr says:

      I don’t go to the movies anymore, but for a different reason. It’s a great place to catch a bad cold or flu, as well as other bad ass diseases.

  3. avatar former water walker says:

    YES…it gets a mite complicated when a Marvel movie comes out. EZ when it’s a SJW music idiot. Not a microsecond on the Grammytards.

  4. avatar neiowa says:

    Have been boycotting the “RAP” crap since is was first created to annoy whitie. Many many years of great “black” music existed so how did such bilge “succeed” other than under PT Barnums theory?

    1. avatar doesky2 says:

      F#$% Leftist popular music.

      Took the advice recently from somebody to watch classical music instead of just listening.
      Never listened to a complete symphony in 50+ years of living but I sat through this whole thing and started to look for more. Really quite compelling.

    2. avatar Evey259 says:

      Way to severely limit your tastes. Off the top of my head, I can name the likes of Run the Jewels (specifically Killer Mike,) and Ice T as fervent pro-gun rappers with some serious talent.

  5. avatar Gutshot says:

    I can’t imagine any of the fine folks who are regulars on this website watching and not boycotting any of these assclowns.

    1. avatar VerendusAudeo says:

      And I can’t imagine most of these commenters being ‘fine folks’. If they’re constantly flipping their shit over petty BS and bashing anybody with a different opinion, I highly doubt you can consider them ‘fine folks’.

      1. avatar Hunter427 says:

        Well thank you (the high and almighty) to place judgement on us fine folks.

      2. avatar Mister Fleas says:

        Calling out evil and boycotting it is a symptom of fine folks, which is what most of the people here are doing.

      3. avatar Scoutino says:

        And still you keep coming back.

  6. avatar HandyDan says:

    I boycott everyone who is anti gun, as well as a number of other issues. Why would I pay them or add to their fame when they encourage the restriction on my rights?

    1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      +1

    2. avatar Jeff K says:

      Any company or anyone I find to be anti gun looses all my business, been doing it for years.

      1. avatar Matt says:

        Same here. I do the same if people or business’ are anti Trump as well but usually that goes hand in hand with the anti gun crowd. If all progun people were like that these celebrity’s voices would become irrelevant and antigun business’ would go under.

  7. avatar Gman says:

    That’s were you lost me…

  8. avatar Cruzo1981 says:

    There a ton of “action” movie stars who tote guns around in the movies and openly support disarmament. I have stopped watching movies from the ones I’ve identified.

    1. avatar JS says:

      I may watch the movies but I make sure no one is getting any money from me doing it.

  9. avatar TXGunGal says:

    Haven’t been to a movie in a theatre in years, I read books instead.
    Hypocrites, you can bet their paid security personnel is packing. Likely it’s in their contract.

    1. avatar Astigmatism says:

      Hell, most all movie theaters in Tx have voluntarily become soft targets since the banned conceal carry. Makes a boycott an easy choice.
      Not to mention Hollywood had the gaul to remake movies like True Grit.

        Remake any Duke movie? That’s a paddlin.

          So is Willie. And Billy Joe Shaver. And Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jerry Jeff Walker, since we’re talking Texans.
          Stapleton, Jamey Johnson, Bocephus. To name a few.

    2. avatar Vic Nighthorse says:

      I sure enjoy Glenn Campbell (RIP) from time to time even if he was at least half democrat. It seemed like he kept quiet about politics and just sang and played.

      1. avatar Missouri_Mule says:

        Toby Keith is an old school conservative Democrat, but all the conservative Democrat politicians are gone. Sam Nunn would be expelled from the party today. Toby has no one to vote for with a D.

    3. avatar troutbum5 says:

      There is plenty of good new country music. You just don’t hear it on mainstream radio, with the exception of Chris Stapleton. Check out the Outlaw Country channel on XM.

    Moreover, if I want to watch a bunch of overpaid, bloviating degenerates pontificate on stuff about which they know absolutely nothing, I’ll tune in to C-Span.

    “Demand a plan to stop gun violence”

    That’s easy. Stop shooting each other. See, real workable plan.

    Oh? Criminals don’t obey laws? Like the one against murder? So passing a gun law will stop them? Really?

    I propose that anyone convicted of major felonies 3 times on 3 different occasions is ‘out’. Out as in put him in a gas chamber, flood it with pure N2 and then harvest any suitable organs for donation. I guarantee he will never commit another crime again.

  15. avatar Alex Waits says:

    I boycott people/companies that use their fame and fortune to push for social change antithetical to the founding ideals of our great nation.
    If the person/company in question just has an opinion (even contrary to mine) and not actually acting on it (political influence/forming anti rights orginizations etc.) Then I don’t care if they believe the earth is flat and the moon is a giant Dragon egg.
    I’m not the thought/morality police, you can think and say what you want, but take great care with your actions.

    1. avatar Chris says:

      Then by proxy, you are doing what the video asked. Sex, guns, drugs and violence are the topics that sell tickets and draw out the advertising dollars. These people are only against guns if it doesn’t affect them, they don’t give a damn about your rights. Nearly every movie starring Matt Damon has him behind the scope of a rifle, yet he’s the first one in line to scream about how wrong gun violence is. Money has a really great way of influencing opinion, doesn’t matter if it’s in politics or the real world or some shitbag awards ceremony like the grammy’s.

  18. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    Since I don’t know who she is, it’ll be easy to boycott her.

  19. avatar Chris says:

    The pornography industry made a similar video with the same tone, hiring 200 actors to say one thing against piracy. Some things never change.

    If they’re demanding a plan to end gun violence, they’re barking up the wrong tree. I don’t cause gun violence and I don’t like gun violence. I’m not a criminal, I’m a mid-30’s male with no criminal record. I own firearms because I want to protect myself and my family. It’s reasonable to assume everybody here (and whoever watched that stupid ad) feels the same way. I don’t trust the police to protect me and feel I can do a better job without them.

    1. avatar FedUp says:

      If a dancing monkey wants to hold me responsible for the criminal acts of others, she can go to Hell.

      If that same dancing monkey protests the removal of illegal aliens from the country, then I hold her personally responsible for the criminal acts of illegal aliens.

    After watching the video I know who not to watch in movies or on TV. Thanks for the identifying facial features, it makes it easier to turn off and tune out. Hey Robert, you should forward the comments section of the blog to all these social justice warriors and especially their agents so they can start adding up the loss of income not finding it’s way into their bank accounts. I’ll bet that they will have some control over their clients, after all it is and will always be about money. Maybe the loss of income will shut their mouths especially when it takes away their toys, houses or food off the table.

    Well, to be fair, Hillary Clinton did win a Grammy for her book back in the 90s.

    1. avatar FedUp says:

      Holy Fook, I thought you were joking, but you weren’t.
      Anybody with half a brain has had a good reason to ignore the Grammys for 20 years:

      Clinton won the Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album for It Takes a Village during the Grammy Awards of 1997.

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        *And* was nominated for one other :

        https://www.grammy.com/grammys/artists/hillary-rodham-clinton

        She was nominated for and ‘won’ it for ‘It Takes A Village’ in 1996.

        And was nominated for the second time in 2003 for ‘Living History’.

        Two nominations and one win.

        What should be your penalty, RF? 😉

  24. avatar Rokurota says:

    I’m going to break ranks again and say “not necessarily.” I get the argument about putting money in their pocket, which may end up in Bloomberg’s, but these celebs don’t need your money. They have enough already.

    Also, most of you already admit you don’t go to movies or listen to new music. So a fat lot of good your supposed protest does. I don’t think Barbra Streisand or Kanye care about your money or your opinion, since they never had a shot at it anyhow.

    In the end, these kinds of boycotts and protests are just there to make US feel righteous. In that’ we’re no different than lefty celebrities who mouth off for some shred of justification or progressive types who think their tweet is going to change the world. Yeah, Liam Neeson et al are utter hypocrites, but you’ll likely never find a person who lives up to your standards, not even yourself. If I boycotted everyone who bashed guns, America, religion, marriage, and red meat, there wouldn’t be anyone left to watch.

    I did start following Katee Sackhoff when she lost those 500K followers. I also enjoy quality movies that lift us up (thanks for the “12 Strong” review, TTAG), especially if there’s awesome gunplay. It’s not much, and I’m under no illusions it confers any kind of righteousness on me. I don’t even check my Twitter account. But to each his own. My wife drops hot actors when they cheat on their wives, and as much a fan I am of his older, funny stuff, I cannot watch Woody Allen any more without picking up on his pedophilia.

    Entertainment is all about entertaining, and I admit I find hypocrites and blowhards less entertaining than fun, positive folks. Who doesn’t?

    1. avatar RidgeRunner says:

      I’m a music lover, I’ve made my living in and around the music and live entertainment business for over 30 years, I’ve been passionate about music since my childhood. Around the time I began to solidify my own political views, (which are more lifestyle views, IMO), is when so many artists began to make their views part of their public persona. I had to make a decision, do I want to forsake the music that moves me because of what these people believe when they’re not making music? I came to the decision that I would not. I haven’t had to actually BUY music or concert tickets in 30 years (outside of the occasional Apple stream), but I would if that’s what it took to listen to the music I like. I just didn’t want to give up my Pink Floyd, Born To Run, Bowie, U2, Petty, Stones, McCartney, Drive-By Truckers, etc. I’ve actually met and had conversations with all of these guys, and most of the biggest artists of the past 50 years from all genres, and most of them are quite likable when you talk about music and such. Particularly, the British rock royalty are almost without fail true gentlemen who love and are fascinated by America. I simply refused to let their warped values take away my music. When they start proselytizing, I check out. The country acts in most cases are cut from the same cloth as I, and are easy to talk to about hunting, guns, trucks, stuff like that.

  25. avatar Sal Chichon says:

    Nearly 100% of actors and actresses are liberal fucks who have departed with life in the real world since becoming young adults, if not earlier than that. Much like preachers, I don’t put any stock in those who are detached from reality, and that includes “celebrities.”

    I’ll watch movies, but I know that all I am looking at are hairless apes playing pretend in front of a camera, and nothing more. I do draw the line at movies, and performers who demonstrate egregious misandry… and I do thing gun control is inherently misandric.

  26. avatar MamaLiberty says:

    I boycott stupid, wherever, whoever. I have not had a TV in more than 30 years and don’t miss it. Don’t hear well, so I’m spared all TV, radio, movies and most other electronic sound stuff. I don’t even have any “smart” things… well, except the dog, and he’s just naturally smart.

    Strangely, I have plenty of ways to keep busy and enjoy myself. 🙂 Like shooting!

  27. avatar Jay in Florida says:

    I haven’t watched the grannies in over 30 years. I don’t care one whit what they entertainers have to say about anything. Their job is to shut up and sing if thats what you want to call what it is they do today.

  28. avatar Ing says:

    Nah. I don’t care what any given celebrity believes — pro-gun, anti-gun, or anything else.

    But I will boycott them if they make it clear that they hate me and don’t want my business, which is what Hollywood in general, and now the music business in general, have done. They’ve made it abundantly clear that they hate me and would destroy the things I hold most dear if they could, so I’ve opted out of their ecosystem.

    The few movies and TV shows I watch are from alternate sources. It takes a little extra effort to find said sources, but it’s a win-win: I get to watch for free and Hollywood gets no money from me.

    From here on out, I don’t buy music from the crony-socialist entertainment complex, either. If I really like a band, I’ll support them by going to live shows and buying their merchandise (which is where they make most of their money to begin with, and is something I already tend to do anyway).

    Huh? The Grammys were last night? Oh well life goes on. In regard to Ms. Morris, ma’am you do realize like 99.999999999% of your target audience in country western music has 3 things in common:
    1. Owns guns.
    2. Drives Truck.
    3. Drinks Beer.
    BONUS:
    4. Owns Dogs.

    anything you say against any of those is going to affect turnout for your shows and buys for your music across all platforms…. it’s like you have no idea wtf your fans do for fun.

    1. avatar Gralnok says:

      Hmm, lessee here…
      ✔️ Owns a dog.

    Demand a Plan?

    FFS I’ve put out a plan on here (and a bunch of other places) numerous times. No one really wants to listen because it’s not politically palatable to either side of the aisle. Will it work for the real big mass shootings? No, but it would cut down overall “gun violence” a whole hell of a lot.

    Unfortunately the correct solution to knotty problems rarely is politically palatable to enough people to make the solution a practical reality.

    Oh, and who the hell watches the Grammys?

    1. avatar Curtis in IL says:

      Who watches the Grammy’s?

      According to hollywood reporter.com
      “The telecast, which ran a bloated three-and-a-half hours, was off by 24 percent from 2017 with adjusted numbers. With time zone adjustments taken into account, the telecast averaged 19.8 million viewers and a 5.9 rating among adults 18-49. The second stat marked a low for the show. ”

      Everyone knew ahead of time that it was going to be a Trump-bashing liberal orgy. Apparently that didn’t go over so well.

      1. avatar Casey says:

        If there had been an orgy, I might have watched.

        Hah hah!! It is too bad the producers of the telecast probably won’t connect the dots.

    I cant stand morons patting themselves on the back. Im sick of the political grandstanding. Well sick of all the celebrity grandstanding really.
    I underatand that not everyone thinks the same. The actors actresses and musicians just entertain me. My opinion doest matter to you, so yours doesnt matter to me. Stfu and do your job.
    I havent been to the movies in years. Dont have cable. I use netflix and the internet when i want to watch a show.

    1. avatar Gralnok says:

      This is actually why you don’t hear much from Mike Rowe. He does his job, (however dirty), doesn’t virtue signal, doesn’t take sides. He knows what people want from him, and it’s not political opinions. I admire him for that.

        3. avatar Cloud says:

          If you like 90’s punk you might like this semi-new band I found called Hit the Switch. They’ve been around for awhile apparently but they sound pretty cool. Keeping that 90’s sound alive. They have a new record coming out sometime this year apparently.

      2. avatar Ing says:

        You got it backwards. Metal is where it’s at. More variety and better musicianship from top to bottom.

      3. avatar SouthAl says:

        Punk died with Waylon. Wait, that was a previous article.

        Guess I’m getting old, or just not hard core enough. For me, punk died with John Mellor.

        1. avatar strych9 says:

          The “Jesus Heals” guy? If that’s who you were referring to that’s damn funny.

        2. avatar SouthAl says:

          Aw shit. I hope we are not talking about the same guy. I was talking about John Mellor aka Joe Strummer. Could be though, I really did not keep up with Strummer after The Clash and they were about the extent of my Punk exposure.

        3. avatar strych9 says:

          I know who Joe Strummer is. However, there’s another guy named John Mellor who runs John Mellor Ministries who’s one of those “Healing Evangelists” that touches people and they’re “no longer paralyzed”.

          So yeah, there’s a joke in there and I’ve always found that abso-fucking-lutely hilarious. I’m just waiting for Benny Hinn to do a televised Evangelism thing with some guy other “healer” named GG Allin!

    1. avatar Jonathan-Houston says:

      Except, it doesn’t have to be every major issue. Firearms freedom is the premier civil rights struggle if our time. It’s the distilled application of every of freedom infringement delineating the relationship between the government and the governed. Get this one issue right (and I mean really get it right, lije introducing bills to expand freedom, taking the unpopular stance told hold the line against emotional public opinion, etc. and not just pat lip service to 2A rights.), and 99% of the other issues will fall into place on their own.

      1. avatar Ing says:

        It took me a while to figure it out, but that’s where I wound up, too. The principles and actions that keep the Second Amendment alive and functioning will do the same for other civil and individual rights. Any politician that isn’t willing to protect the Second Amendment can’t be trusted to defend any other essential freedom.

  38. avatar Cloud says:

    It’s not just their anti-gun views. This election has brought me to the realization of how worthless Hollywood truly is. These people are nothing but over paid court jesters who bring zero value to my personal life. I’ve pretty much given up all forms of entertainment that comes out of that dreadful group of narcissists. And I don’t regret it one bit. Life is a bit brighter and more productive.

      Actually, in the ancient times, court jesters we’re among the few people allowed to criticize the King. They could touch on the things affecting the common folk. These days, Hollywood doesn’t even know what affects the common man, or if they do, they ignore it entirely, so they aren’t even jesters.
      Off with their heads, I say! 😜

    I think it’s pretty clear from the foregoing comments that we of the Armed Intelligentsia know better than to patronize celebs that hate our country and/or the 2d Amendment. Heck, I haven’t had Levi’s on my butt since college (40 years ago) because of their anti-gun stance. Wrangler’s Rule !

    1. avatar tiger says:

      Armed Intelligentsia? I think some here want to burn her as a Witch

    2. avatar DrewR says:

      I second that on the Wrangler’s. A hell of a lot cheaper than Levi’s to boot. People need to keep in mind that Levi’s owns Hanes, so Hanes should be off the list, too.

  40. avatar Jonathan-Houston says:

    It’s hard to keep track of who all I’m boycotting. Fortunately, many of them, in whatever field, suck anyway. So, simple avoidance tends to overlap with boycotts.

    We rarely watch new movies; we don’t even have cable. So I am far out of the know on who the current celebrities even are.

  41. avatar tiger says:

    Folks you can not exactly tune out half the universe because they do not share your world view. Otherwise you will be watching QVC & the Weather Channel all day.
    The thing that makes this place work is that unlike, North Korea we have choice & the right to hold a dissenting view. The reporter asked a honest question. She gave a rather mild reply on her feelings. “Having this open conversation about gun rights would be a start, [as well as] changing legislation,” she said, when asked to offer some potential solutions to America’s plague of mass shootings.”-Miss Martin.

    Does that answer make her Hanoi Jane? Or Have we gone off the deep end into gun nutville?

    1. avatar Ironhead says:

      Ok lets have an honest conversation with her. You willing to bet she wont give a flying f^ck what we have to say?
      There is no honest conversation. Its been proven time and time again.
      Not trying to bust your chops or anything. Just saying that her statement has been said many times. And the pro gun side does not have a voice in that conversation.

    2. avatar Gralnok says:

      Actually, you have a good point. Differing opinions is what makes us great and prevents us from becoming the other side of the same coin, stuck in our own little echo chambers.

      Plus, QVC hasn’t been offering interesting products lately. 🤣

    3. avatar Mister Fleas says:

      “Folks you can not exactly tune out half the universe because they do not share your world view.”

      You can if you shut off the boob tube.

      “The thing that makes this place work is that unlike, North Korea we have choice & the right to hold a dissenting view.”

      No here at the website, at least, is saying that. Disagreeing with “a dissenting view” and boycotting the Grammys and other Hollyweird endeavors is at least as much our right is it is the gun grabbers to express their views and produce propaganda. That is a non sequitur.

  42. avatar ColoradoKid says:

    My family is trying to boycott hollyweird all together. And guess what!? Turns out my wife really likes the old westerns! Movies and series-based (especially Gunsmoke). Ah yes, the good ole days.

  43. avatar W says:

    Way ahead of you Robbie. I even boycott anti-gun gun companies.

  44. avatar James Carpenter says:

    It’s a shame these celebrities don’t concentrate their time and energy on not sexually abusing each other in lieu of preaching gun control. Either way I have stopped watching most professional sports and I don’t support musicians and actors who preach their leftist antigun crap.

  45. avatar Slow Joe Crow says:

    I passively boycott most of this stuff, since I don’t listen to a lot of mainstream music, rarely go the movies and don’t watch pro sports.
    Hitting celebs in the wallet is an effective message, although Hollywood has not fully absorbed the message sent by Miss Sloan’s Gigli level box office numbers. The NFL may have some clue after 2017.

  46. avatar Casey says:

    It’s not a boycott so much as it is a “I can’t be bothered”.

    Hypocrisy is a sore point with me, though, so I find I naturally have no interest watching any movie with, say, Charlize Theron shooting guns.

    They’re free to have their opinions, of course – I would never suggest otherwise. But I don’t want to engage entertainers who publicly call for my arrest or death because of how I choose to spend my money.

    People say “oh, but you’re not watching them for their politics”. That’s true, but it’s also true that while I don’t shop at any particular grocery store because I love their music selection, there ARE stores I avoid BECAUSE their music selection includes bodies of work suggesting that one simple needs to learn to apply the back of one’s hand to the mouth of one’s female partner (who may be critical of ones choices to pursue other partners) in order to ensure future domestic tranquility.

  47. I have boycotted Hollywood. I don’t go to the movies anymore, don’t watch much of the new shows on tv,( prefer the old ones anyway) and just got fed up with all of it. and I won’t be watching the superbowl either. the nfl can goto hell with all their antigun crap.I don’t go into places that have a no guns allowed sign . and I wonder if all the celebs ask their bodyguards to leave their guns at home when they guard them. let these people smoke their pot and take their drugs and have their marriage of the week to whomever.they can all goto hell for all I care.

    They should shut up and sing. Talent does not automatically equal intelligence nor ethical standing.

    Marin Morris couldn’t carry Allen Jackson’s jockstrap. She’s not real country, not anymore. She’s nobody from here on out.

  52. avatar Eli2016 says:

    A “boycott” is a symbolic gesture in this case and really proves nothing. It’s not like you’re boycotting Wal-Mart or some specific product. The entertainment industry is so vast that only an inconceivable world-wide demonstration would work, which is of course impossible. Better to strengthen your ties with like minded people than waste your time with this trash.

  53. avatar SelousX says:

    My tastes would dictate that any boycott of most of these artists would be useless.
    That said, in cases like this I look to the Pet Shop Boys song “How Can You Expect to be Taken Seriously”.

  54. avatar GoD says:

    Enuff with gun control they would be screaming as their getting raped and chopped to pieces because they were too stupid to have a plan of self defense….or they are the type with 24hr armed guards with lots of guns!

    They are too stupid to know when they ring 911 they are calling for LOTS of GUNS and Artillery…. not Cops armed with rape whistles to whistle a tune as they are ganged raped and beat to death.

    This is what happens when ur too stupid to talk and form a sentence with logic.

  55. avatar John says:

    I withhold my business and viewing from anti-gunners.

  56. avatar Gralnok says:

    I know, we should have our own awards show! Take note, TTAG and fellow commenters, I propose the start of the TTAG Awards! Best Gun, Best Advocate, Best Gear, Best Reviewer, Best Defensive Gun Use, etcetera!

    Hollywood has abandoned us, that is their choice and they are free to make it. However, we are free to hold our own awards show to prove we couldn’t care less about the out of touch elites!

    1. avatar anonymoose says:

      I second this.

  58. avatar Hank Hill says:

    Who cares about this crap?

  59. avatar Wheel Gun Guy says:

    Pretty much ignore most of today’s celebrities including professional athletes and musicians, but I am thankful for the likes of Clint Eastwood, Tom Selleck, Kurt Russell, Ted Nugent, Charlie Daniels and Dave Butz who have devoted most of their professional careers in promoting our Constitution and our Second Amendment rights….to those folks I thank you.

  60. avatar MDH says:

    It’s all fun and games until people actually notice you’re running your mouth when you’re being paid to be a musician (or whatever) and they stop buying your sh*t.

  61. avatar K2 says:

    I DEMAND A PLAN! For all those celebrities to end their hypocrisy and disarm their security personnel! Better yet, they should rid themselves of security altogether and depend on their local police for security, like they propose for us normal folks. Come on now, set the example for all of us!

  62. avatar MiniMe says:

    “Boycott Anti-Gun Celebrities?”

    Yes. Next question?

    “If you watched last night’s Grammy Awards…”

    Nope. Haven’t watched those left coast self-masturbating laughably-called “music awards” since 1985.
    If I want to kill brain cells, there are better & more enjoyable ways to do so.

    I don’t normally leave a comment without reading first, but there are 110 of them, and I have court tomorrow morning. Does anyone actually disagree with what she actually said?

    1. We should talk about gun rights. – That’s what we do here all the time.
    2. We need to change laws. – Like the NFA, GCA, and Hughes Amendment.
    3. “We need to protect ourselves and our children.” – Yeah, with guns.
    4. “‘I want the county music community to get brave and talk about it,’ she added. ‘I feel like the floodgates are starting to open, where people are comfortable talking about it. Unfortunately, it takes a tragedy like Vegas to start that conversation, but I’m hoping it impacts positive change from now on, so we never have to see this again.'” Okay, I don’t care what musicians (in general) have to say about things that aren’t music.

    She could give politicians lessons in not saying anything while talking.

      Yes, because she is speaking with a forked tongue. The “talk” she is speaking of is where we stay totally on the defensive or even shut up entirely. “Change laws” is changing laws to harm law abiding gun owners, not to increase liberty for the law abiding. “Protect” means disarming honest people while leaving guns in the hands of the government and criminals(see Chicago and its non-prosecution of hard core criminals violating its gun laws as an example). “positive change” means gun grabbing, nothing less.

  65. avatar Jamie in North Dakota says:

    Yup, I boycott the anti-freedom leftist bastards and so should every other gunner who loves our liberties here in America.

    Use torrents! Of course, I only download non-copyrighted information. If I did download copyrighted entertainment, it wouldn’t be because I’m cheap; it would be because I wouldn’t knowingly fund my ideological enemies. (Yes, I’d watch it. No, I wouldn’t fund it.)

  67. avatar Anymouse says:

    Boycott all celebrities — you life will be bettet for it. Most of them are braindead idiots. Why would you care about their opinion? Kardasians? Famous for sex tape and being naked/semi naked. Qualifications for practically anything? None. Actors who say amazing things? Read what someone else wrote. Even educated celebrities have degrees in arts, drama, or music. I might trust their opinion on those subjects, but few others.

  68. avatar Kenneth Heavrin Jr. says:

    I don’t listen to much music any more and try to be careful of what movies I pay to watch but it would be helpful to have a web site with a current list of dingbats to avoid other than the REAL obvious ones.

    On a long enough time line, EVERYONE will do something at some point that offends you. I guess you could just boycott EVERYONE.

  70. avatar raptor jesus says:

    I boycott all celebrities.

  71. avatar KERK says:

    I’m disappointed to hear about Maren Morris’ views on gun control. I do like her music but will now have to reconsider that. I was really surprised recently when I read that Tim and Faith came out for gun control also. Not good. I would much prefer that artists practice their art and forsake the politics. I do not pay to hear their slanted political views, as most of them have little in common with average persons who work and worry about their family’s safety each day.

  72. avatar zebra dun says:

    Yes, Everytime these clowns open their mouth and I don’t like what they say and do I boycott.

  73. avatar Mikial says:

    I’d like to say I boycott these losers, but the truth is I don’t listen to them normally and don’t even recognize half their names. Just a bunch of loud mouth, no-talents that the Liberal masses wet their panties over and waste a lot of money on. Who cares what they think?
