Blue Bloods is not my favorite show, and Tom Selleck is not my favorite actor. At the risk of seeming sexually intolerant, I never really got past Tom’s Village People moustache, back in the days when blue jeans had bells. But you gotta give Mr. Selleck credit for his unwavering stand on gun rights, whilst living and working in a town so left-leaning it makes the the Sierra Club look like a bunch of tree huggers. Oh wait. Anyway, the former Magnum P.I. star’s no stranger to guns. According to the National Enquirer, Selleck ripped a fellow actor a new you-know-what when the gun-toting thespian displayed poor muzzle control (i.e. “waved the gun around”) . . .
“Hey, YOU! What the HELL are you doing? That gun’s NOT a toy — stop waving it around! Look at you…your finger’s STILL ON THE TRIGGER!”
Caps lock off.
“Is the gun really loaded?”
Caps lock ready.
“No, it’s not loaded. But when you handle a gun it’s common sense to assume it IS loaded, and NOT point it at people!”
There’s that term again. Sigh. As Voltaire said, common sense is not so common. Except maybe on this website. More to the point, judging from the Magnum PI pic above, Mr. Selleck is a relatively recent convert to the trigger finger discipline thing. Just sayin’ . . .
