Yes, it certainly looks as if yet another Hollywood empty vessel has opened his mouth, displaying for all the world that he’s thoroughly unencumbered by the facts, let alone the thought process.
This time it’s Ashton Kutcher who, after learning of the Thousand Oaks Borderline bar shooting, felt the need to let everyone on social media know just how very concerned he is about both mental illness and ongoing scourge of civilian gun ownership (besides his, of course).
That he also betrayed the fact that he probably acquired (and apparently still owns) a firearm illegally is just a bonus. California, of course, is gun control Nirvana and has a universal background check law. That has to be done through a licensed firearm dealer. We’re pretty sure that can’t be done in the parking lot of a local honky tonk.
But if you’re entertaining any thoughts of Kutcher being frog-marched out of his Beverly Hills home for those crimes, slow your roll. That kind of thing just doesn’t happen. Not to high profile, bien pensent individuals who “inadvertently run afoul of the law,” but openly espouse all the right opinions.
Nothing to see here. Move along.
