Actors Against Gun Violence Founder Debates Himself [VIDEO]

Actor Shane Brolly has launched the YouTube channel Actors Against Gun Violence. So far, it looks like Mr. Brolly’s anti-gun org has a membership of one: Mr. Shane Brolly. Which is not to say most Hollywood actors don’t share his desire for civilian disarmament. So AAGV may have a future. You’d kinda hope it would be run by a man who knows better than to complain that America “allows everyone to run around with guns and machine guns.” Then again, that figures. As you may have guessed from the accent, Mr. Brolly is from . . .

Northern Ireland, a part of the world famous for the IRA’s firearms-intensive resistance to British rule. Note: Shane Brolly’s isn’t a U.S. citizen. Perhaps more important, unlike his sibs, Shane hasn’t landed a gig in Hollywood. So, I guess, this. Which attacks the Second Amendment via the militia clause, the Founders Didn’t Anticipate Modern Weaponry assault, Gun Owners Can’t Fight a Nuke-Armed Tyrannical Government and the 2A is outdated arguments. Recycled, discredited crap. Next!

    Not going to give him a “view”. Do the same.

      No clicks for arrogant pr_cks.

  2. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    I gotta see if comments are allowed…

    Edit- nope. I was able to give it its third “thumbs down” vote though ?

    1. avatar pwrserge says:

      I find it ironic that an Irish B list hack is giving lessons to Americans about how insurgencies against a tyrannical government are impossible. Despite being from Belfast where that exact thing drove the British to the negotiating table.

      1. avatar Tony says:

        Err, no.
        The IRA were driven to the negotiating table after they realized that violence was not working.

        1. avatar Yellow Devil says:

          Oh it worked, but for the Brits.

  3. avatar Anon in CT says:

    Oh no! It’s Arec Bardwin and the Film Actors Guild!

    Except I’ve never heard of this guy.

  4. I don’t get it. He’s not even an American. He’s just a nobody AND still he’s got to speak to the American Nation.

    Go away, punk.

  6. avatar Sian says:

    Wait, who?

    Ok some Irish who played a minor role in 3 Underworld movies (Involving vampires and werewolves having bloody kinetic shootouts behind a blue filter) and did fuck all else says Americans shouldn’t have guns?

    Why should anyone care what this dipstick has to say?

    1. avatar OakRiver says:

      I was trying to place him, thanks.

      I was going to watch the video to see just how bad it was, but YouTube said it was removed by the user. My loss I guess….

  7. avatar laffer37 says:

    I wonder what his brother thinks of his pro victim-disarmament campaign:

  8. avatar franko says:

    480,000 people die in America from smoking every year versus 30,000 from guns, 60% of which are suicides.
    Why don’t they go after the low hanging fruit? Because its more hip to go after guns?
    Maybe they should try to keep kids from starting to smoke instead of chasing pie in the sky goals.

    1. avatar racer88 says:

      ‘Cuz cigarettes weren’t DESIGNED TO KILL. Oh, wait… They weren’t, right?

  9. avatar Jim says:

    He was that amazingly bad actor in Underworld. The one that played Kraven. The wince inducing one.

    This is awesome. Apparently he is also a great poet.

  10. avatar ANdrew Lias says:

    I see that there is a call out in the comments section of the video. Would love to see this guy get ripped to shreds in a real debate.

  11. avatar 5Spot says:

    When you said “actor” I could stop reading. Thanks for that.

  12. avatar Sian says:

    “Author of ‘You’d think there would be more suicides around here’ a book of poetry about his experience as an actor in Hollywood.”

    Hilarious subject matter aside, judging by his performance in Underworld, if this Guy is a Hollywood actor, then I’m an F-1 race car driver.

  13. avatar Bob Wall says:

    Actors Against Gun Violence Founder Debates Himself – and loses…

  14. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    I take it he’s NOT a “masterdebator”…back to Belfast boy…

  15. avatar Ralph says:

    I wonder if he feels the same about outlawing guns in America as he would about outlawing booze in Ireland.

    Brolly not.

  16. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:


  17. avatar Gunr says:

    I watched the video for 2/3 minutes, that’s all I could take. This is really scraping the bottom of the barrel!

  18. avatar James says:

    This guy keeps missing the bus.

  19. avatar Accur81 says:

    I couldn’t get through the whole video, but I was able to give it a thumbs down and a comment.

    Here’s a .460 Smith vs. a 2.5 gallon water jug. That’s the kind of gun control I like!

  20. avatar anomad101 says:

    Criminals are a law abiding bunch, if only we made their activities easier.

  21. avatar Removed_californian says:

    Stopped listening after “everybody running around with machineguns.”

    Credibility hit -1.

    1. avatar actionphysicalman says:

      Yeah, but the sign behind him is quite a credential.

  22. avatar Franko says:

    I just cast the 59th down vote. Do I hear 100?

  23. avatar Ditters says:

    He pulled the video and closed the channel. Anyone get a recording of it for the record? He must have gotten a call from his agent telling him it was a bad idea to be an imbecile on youtube.

  24. avatar BigD says:

    Hmmm? Video removed by the user? Guess the American people have spoken again on the subject.

  25. avatar Philboyd Studge says:

    I think this jackass confused the movies he was in, which did have people running with machine guns, with real life. Following that line of thought, does he really believe there is a secret Vampire/Werewolf war raging? The sad part is that is just as believable as all the other demented lies the antis espouse about guns and their owners.

  26. It’s not just the video. The channel is gone too. Cowards can’t take criticism I guess. Notice gun channel videos never have comments disabled?

  27. avatar Jackalope says:

    Look, he’s on FaceBook. And allows comments. Heh, heh.
