You have to admire these celebs’ stupidity, er, grandiosity. They really believe any of us care what they say.
But here’s a deal, celebs: First, ditch all guns in your own security details. And stop being such sanctimonious, hypocritical jerks.
Emma Stone and a handful of Hollywood celebrities have released a new anti-gun ad for Everytown for Gun Safety.
The star of “La La Land” and her celebrity peers are asking fans to inundate lawmakers with a single message: “Reject the NRA.” A YouTube ad by Everytown for Gun Safety, which is backed by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, features stars reacting to the Oct. 1 massacre in Las Vegas by gunman Stephen Paddock.
“The mass shooting in Las Vegas has all of us grieving, scared and angry,” Ms. Stone says.
“Knowing what to do about it can be confusing,” adds Bill Hader.
Celebrities such as Julianne Moore, Melissa McCarthy and singer Moby then instruct viewers to text “‘REJECT’ to 644-33,” which puts them in touch with Everytown and ultimately their elected representative’s office….
If my parents named me Jack Antonoff I wouldn’t go around telling people.
They clearly are talking to the low-information voters. We’ll have to counter this somehow.
Please text S-T-F-U- to all SAG members. It’s easy and it feels real good.
Oh darn, why didn’t *I* think of that, midget! LOL
Reality check time: If the AR-15s the Las Vegas shooter used had been silenced, the loss of lives would have been zero. To be silenced, they would have to be sub-sonic, i.e. less than 1000 fps. At that range, the muzzle velocity would have been cut in half by the time the bullets hit anyone. A light bullet like the AR-15 uses would have been traveling 500 – 600 fps and would have been no more dangerous than a pellet gun.
