    When Dc goes to DC, I will revoke any and all firearms permits and licenses for those body guards who guard any of the celebrities on that list.

    They will be on their own.

    Something else you're going to have to boycott, your television. Most of these people are entertainers. The only thing you'll be able to watch is Gunny on Mail Call and the Saturday outdoor lineup. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    DC, too much of a left slant on those channels. And one other thing while I'm on the box, the worst one of them all was Walt Disney. He ruined millions of impressionable youth back in the 40s, 50s and 60s. I'm still trying to get his brainwashing out of my head....Bambi and the other talking animals. You know what I mean, just as you squeeze the trigger, in your mind you see the animal turn to you and say, "don't shoot me".... Admit it, it's difficult programming to over come! Forget about the Commies, the wall is down, but Disney is still poluting the minds of our youth. We must arise and blot out this mennace. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Isn't amazing that so many from that list make so much money each year, from action movies,ect. Kevin Costner, one that sticks out in my mind. All the action movies he has made using guns ...makes me sick.

    I know I fought to give all folks the right to make their own choices but, I wonder where these people would run if this country was ever invaded. I have a feeling they would run right behind me, while shooting my rifle and $hitting in their pants the whole time [​IMG]

    How many of these companies would even exist without the freedom that we have fought so hard to keep?? [​IMG]

    Later to pissed to type,Vern [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And another damn thing [​IMG] I see now half the shows on the Outdoor channel have stopped letting you see the shot placement and deaths of the animals harvested.

    I'm sure it's under pressure of PETA and others [​IMG] [​IMG] They have no freakin problem showing some proud American soldier getting his A$$ shot up on TV, while eating your damn diner. [​IMG]

    How much will this country put up with until we put our foot down and say "enough is enough" [​IMG]. Freakin Gays on TV, teaching, in pubic office. Look at what is on TV today! 20 years ago we would never stand for the crap that is being shown on nightly TV, for all our children to see [​IMG]

    People so worried about the "all mighty" dollar that they have lost all common sence [​IMG]

    Makes me sick, I have six holes in my body and saw many of my buddies die....for what this?????? [​IMG]

    WP,

    Believe me I am as angered as you .. look at how many actresses and actors have used or been in movies that had alot of weapons in them.. they made millions off those movies..

    DC,
    you took the words out of my mouth.. take the weapons away from their body guards.. I bet most of the names on the list actually own a weapon as well....

    America is being taken over but, they aren't invading. They are trying to take control from within and the only thing that scares them are people with guns. (they want everyone to be sheep and do what they want) America is a place of diversity and everyone has a part of Freedom in which we all share... (Unless your in California or some of those New England states that is.) Unfortunately they think they can make people do what they want. People think that they are more important than others or want power over others...

    I was watching a TV show yesterday which was Anti-gun. Kid gets ahold of his gun out of a locked box after finding the key discharges it and gets caught... so daddy turns the Sig pistol in for $40 and everyone is happy. Notice if idiot had a safe or trigger lock or whatever but that wasn't in the script. Australia pulled a fast one along with England and Canada, so if this ever happens the Goverment can do anything afterwards. (Notice crooks don't follow laws, that's why they are crooks so they can't say that crime will decrease.)

    I am serving this Country currently btw....
    (Take the word "they" and insert another if you like.)

    Something to think about... Though I truely dislike the hipocracy that actors spew but... when one boycotts, say actors or some other corp. you are hurting set designers/builders who may have completely oppsite veiws of those of actors. As with actors many set designers get kickbacks from movie sales so think about it before you set some poor blue collar guy back his share. I personally don't venture to the movies for I am too busy working my butt off.

    Here's one you'll like... Michael Moore who constantly speaks against large industry and the gun industry is on a tour right now and is being flown by.... Time/Warner in private jets, never knew them to be a small company and is being protected by body guards upon arrival, and I would imagine they carry guns.
