“I went to the gun range and learned how to shoot a gun for the first time,” 24-year-old actress and cover girl Blake Lively tells USA Today. “It was awful. I asked myself, ‘Why were these things ever invented?'” As Fergie would say, h-h-h-h-hold it. Would I be wrong to conclude that Ms. Lively is being a tad egocentric here? She couldn’t shoot so guns suck? No wait. I got it wrong. She can shoot (according to her): “I did feel good that my first three shots were straight to the heart [at an unknown distance shooting an unnamed weapon of an unspecified caliber from an unidentified position].” So guns are bad but I was good and . . . that’s good. “It’s good to know – don’t mess with me in a gun battle.” Youth has its privileges; including ignorance.
