Hollywood Hypocrites (Quelle Surprise!)

Daniel Craig ("James Bond", Casino Royale):
"I hate handguns. They are used to shooting people and as long as they are around, people will shoot each other."
(I say the counter quote to that is: "Nothing wrong with shooting, as long as the right people get shot."-Clint Eastwood as Harry Calahan, SFPD.)

Jodie Foster (After her co-star was a gun in The Brave One):
''Here's my commentary: I don't believe that any gun should be in the hand of a thinking, feeling, breathing human being''
(Perhaps she feels the "thinking...human being" part grants her an exception?)

Sylvester Stallone:
"until America, door to door, takes every handgun, this is what you're gonna have... It really is pathetic... We're livin' in the Dark Ages.."

(It turns out according to records that Stallone applied for a CCW permit on September 29, 2004 and was issued a permit on November 30, 2004.)

Rosie O'Donnell:
"You are not allowed to own a gun, and if you do own a gun, I think you should go to prison."

(In May 2000, O'Donnell's bodyguard applied for a concealed firearm permit in Connecticut. ...O'Donnell added that because of threats, she and her family need protection, which she attributes, ironically, to her "tough gun-control rhetoric". Yeah right - she needs armed security because supporters of the 2nd amendment are going to go after an insignificant bug like Rosie. /sarcasm)

Sorry for anybody's ruined appetite.)

About Me

I'm a 57 year old geek. I voted Democratic for 20 years, because I disliked the Republicans more. But now, nobody really speaks for me. I'm for Guns, for more correct government regulation of the financial world, against illegal immigration and amnesty. (in 2008 I ended up voting Republican - too many questions about Obama, and voting against anybody who voted for TARP 1.) In 2010 I voted a stright republican ticket because the Democrats have completely lost their minds.
