Harvey Weinstein Says He and Meryl Streep Are Going to Make a Movie “That Will Make the NRA Wish They Weren’t Alive”

Producer Harvey Weinstein is not afraid to speak his mind.  He did just that on a recent appearance on The Howard Stern Show, (via Washington Times), where he revealed that he and Meryl Streep are working on a project that will take on the National Rifle Association.  After making some strong statements against the NRA, Weinstein said, “I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take [gun rights] head-on. And [the NRA is] going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.”  Weinstein revealed that the project won’t be a documentary, but will instead be a big movie in the vein of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.  His vision for the project is for people to leave the theater thinking, “Gun stocks – I don’t want to be involved in that stuff.”

No further details on the project are given, and a timetable is unknown at this point.  Streep recently wrapped the big Disney musical Into the Woods and is currently filming the long-awaited childrens book adaptation The Giver.

    Not trying to get political, but this is precious. The guy who has made millions off of the glorification of violence and weapons is going to stick it the NRA.

    • James VDB

      I don’t like the NRA, but you have a point.

    • Liderc

      There’s kind of a big difference between gun violence and using guns in films. Art is art, and it’s been proven that films and video games have VERY little to do with gun violence.

      Hell, if gun violence in films made people shoot other people I’d be a serial murderer.

      • Doge

        It seems hypocritical. Like a music producer financing a rapper to sing about smoking weed then telling a pro-weed group to go fuck themselves. “But but but its for art!”.. The art of making money yea we know. Now its fine to make both films about conflicting point of views for the sake of business and you can even say “art” but to make a personal jab at the same time like that just reeks of pompous retardation.

      • Liderc

        Again, telling someone to smoke weed in a song is a lot different than showing someone use a gun in a film. A violent film isn’t telling you to be violent, more times than not it shows the immense destruction that occurs when gun violence occurs in real life.

        Also, smoking weed =/ shooting people.

      • -

        Bad analogy. What mainstream film can you think of that glorifies the use of gun violence in a relevant social context? (so no, Django Unchained does not count)

      • -

        also, your name is doge
        wow, funny internet memes!!

      • JBug

        I’m just pointing out the irony, not criticizes the man for his point of views.

    • Frank

      I don’t agree. I see your point about the irony, but it’s really not all that ironical. Movies guns = fantasy. Real life guns = tragedy.

      There is a difference in the culture of what Harvey creates vs what the NRA creates. And if there were any correlation, as others have stated, anyone that watches a violent film would be walking around shooting people.

      The people that snap are mentally ill, already fascinated with killing long before a Harvey movie release. You can look up Charles Manson, spree killing, serial killers online easily. Do we ban the internet? No of course not.

      But – one course of action is to create a more difficult environment for the mentally ill to obtain those guns and enact those fantasies.

      I imagine if Harvey is going to do a movie talking about how shitty guns are – it isn’t to clear his clear his conscience. He knows the difference. And he’s doing the movie because the people of the NRA don’t.

      • JBug

        Nice and thoughtful comment. The irony I was pointing out is that the movies he makes and profits from are primarily based in a world where weapons are easily accessible, a world he is trying to change. I get that is more complicated than that, but at the surface level, it’s ironic, because you wouldn’t expect this guy to be vigilantly anti-guns. Your point is still worth making.

      • Frank

        Your comment is thoughtful as well, it’s something to think about for sure and creates a great dialog. As much as I’ve always loved violent films, real life violence appalls me. I suspect Harvey is the same way.

  • Thomas Hansen

    What an idiot. So Meryl Streep will convince people the government should have a monopoly on guns? Sometimes I wonder how these guys actually manage to get a career, with all that ignorance and lack of knowledge about history.

    • -

      “So Meryl Streep will convince people the government should have a monopoly on guns?”
      Yep, if you’re opposed to the NRA that means you’re against any ownership of guns at all except by the government. That’s not a straw man at all.

      • Murdoch

        Now you know what people who support limits on mentally ill people buying guns have to deal with every election cycle.

    I already wish Meryl Streep and Harvey Weinstein weren’t alive. Does that count for something?

  • herpderp

    I can already see someone making a montage of every gunshot fired from this producers movies. Just like how they did when all the celebrities made a “you plebe humans need to put your guns down” video after Sandy hook.

    • Murdoch

      Again, you want to attack actors, find some that own guns in real life and yet ask for the prohibition of gun sales. If they own handguns but support bans on assault rifles, they’re not being hypocrites.
      If an actor portrays a rapist in a movie and then speaks out against sexual assaults, would you claim that actor is being a hypocrite? No, because rape doesn’t have a billion dollar lobby.

      • Al

        No no, Weinstein and many in hollywood attack the NRA as a monolith. Without the asterisks for assault rifles. They’re attacking a group of people who just think differently then they do. And if they, and myself, and everyone else who believes in the second amendment is so wrong (something you clearly believe) then we still shouldn’t be vilified.

        You believe I’m making as big a mistake as I believe you are. We’re both irked enough to comment because we believe each other is making a dangerous mistake.

        No one is evil here. Its a disagreement. I only get mad when the rhetoric fails to realize this. So when Weinstein says “Make the NRA wish they weren’t alive,” I get disgusted. But I’m willing to forgive because he is only behaving this way because he is letting his concern blind him to the fact that those that disagree with him are just as concerned with human life as he is, it just so happens that we disagree on how to protect our safety.

      • Murdoch

        The second you can find anyone on the pro gun-control side who is willing to claim that Newtown parents are trying to “cash in” their supposed “fame” to get what they want, or that the whole thing was a govt operation a la Fast & Furious, i’ll believe your statement about neither side being inherently “evil”. Until then, i have my doubts.

      • Al

        And doubts I can understand with people spewing the dumb crap that you highlighted. The problem is those nut jobs don’t speak for me just as Weinstein doesn’t speak for you. My issue is people are only interested in what the extremists on sides care about and not about those who don’t go down those paths. Not just about gun control, with literally any political issue these days and it sickens me.

        If you notice, none of my comments showed interest in berating or even debating gun laws. It was a call to ignore the worst of both sides (or at least not treat them as the leaders of either side) They’re just goons that poison the debate.

  • Al

    They should get out an actually meet member of the NRA who aren’t top brass or lobbyists before using such language. The problem that both sides of any issue seem to have these days is lack of interest in knowing your ideological opponent beyond stereotype. I’m not a member of the NRA but plenty of my friends and family are and no one is a loud mouth gun coot or dangerous for that matter.

    I’m fine, and they’re fine, with people disagreeing about guns, but we stand by our opinions. 2nd amendment supporters do not look like how they’re portrayed on tv.

    • Frank

      Good points all around. It would be great if people could see beyond the stereotypes perpetuated by our media. I’d actually be far more interested in a movie that presents both sides of the issue in an effective way.

  • Osiris

    I’m all for the movie. Let them try to prove their challenge. If they reveal some insane conspiracy plot about the NRA personally funding all school shooters and city gangs or having a large interest in people who do immoral/illegal things with guns, then they have a seriously interesting story with ramifications. But if it’s just the same “guns hurt people and we don’t need them in America” rose-colored perspective, then this will just piss off the majority of Americans who believe in the right to self-defense and who understand that Police are not here to serve and protect, they are here to investigate crimes.

    • Murdoch

      If that’s the case, the next time someone attempts to break into your house or threaten you, call a friend or neighbor with a gun . . . then once the threat has passed, call the police to clean everything up, but not a second sooner.

      • Osiris

        Why? I have my own gun…

      • Murdoch

        Even better. Now, unless your house is on fire or someone gets sick, i never want you calling 911 until after you’re done dealing with the intruders / rapsists / burglars (or whoever else you bought the gun to protect yourself against) ever again.

      • Osiris

        Well, if I have time to make the call, that will get them there more quickly to catch anybody trying to flee/to help me if I get hurt. But the majority of the time, the police do not arrive to a scene before a crime has taken place. It’s just physics. Even so, you have my word, Murdoch: If someone is trying to get into my home and rape me, I won’t let them.

      • Murdoch

        Read the news lately?

        http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/01/16/gunman-2-others-dead-in-shooting-at-indiana-grocery-store/

        Let me guess, if the cashiers and customers were all armed, the two that were shot wouldn’t be dead right now.

      • Osiris

        Well… what do you think would happen if somebody started shooting people at a gun range? Do you think they would wait for police to show up and protect them?

        Also, we were discussing home defense, not concealed carry or citizen shooting laws.

        You seem to be a particularly incensed commenter, Murdoch. I hope you find time to enjoy life.

      • Murdoch

        Were we? I thought we were talking about the effectiveness of police in stopping deadly crimes in progress? But i’m with you, i don’t even remember/care anymore.
        Thanks for the well wishes, but in a country with 300 million guns? I could try, but stats aren’t in my favor.

  • RIC

    I’m sure it’ll be pure coincidence when this film is released in the heart of the next presidential election…

    • Murdoch

      You mean like Obama’s America 2016 and Fahrenheit 9/11 were released before the 2012 and 2004 elections respectively? Yup, really changed the course of the elections, those movies.

  • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

    So… does this mean we will no longer see films from Weinstien that glorifies guns? No Boondock Saints 3? Pulp Fiction 2? Hypocracy at its finest. Hollywood’s mentality has always been “do as I say and not as I do”. ex. Alec Baldwin supports gay rights but calls paparazzi “faggots” in a moment of anger. Makes perfect sense to me.

    • Murdoch

      . . . sigh . . . Harvey weinstein has never killed a man with a gun (that we know of). The guns they use on movie sets are fake. If the NRA would like to start making movies or support the ownership of fake guns, i’m sure there are plenty who would support them.

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        “Harvey Weinstein has never killed man.” I’m confused by this statement. Are you implying the NRA has killed people? I’m not a member of the NRA, own a gun, nor care to own a gun but for a person like Weinstein, who I dispise since he’s one of the biggest assholes on the face of the earth, wants to make a film about the evil’s of the NRA, an organization that tons of people I know are in, then yes he will fall in my category of a hypocrite. Unless he’s making historical based films that had the guns as part of the history then he should not allow his films to have them (see George Clooney’s stance after From Dusk til Dawn/The Peacekeeper).

      • Murdoch

        ” Hypocracy at its finest. Hollywood’s mentality has always been “do as I say and not as I do”

        Its not hypocritical because we’re dealing with a gun lobby that has made it impossible to pass even the most basic of gun laws (ie basic psych history taken into account before selling someone a weapon). The NRA is so paranoid that they’re going to lose their 300 million guns that they don’t even want to THINK about ANY restrictions on guns whatsoever. Why? Slippery slope. If you can take it away from crazies, then who decides who is or isn’t crazy? Better we just sell it to everyone.
        Thus, it may not be direct, but NRA is ABSOLUTELY responsible for any death that occurs as a result of its own insane, paranoid delusions of persecution as opposed to any interest in even slightly denting the number of gun deaths that occur every year.
        And in the face of all this, you actually point the finger at Hollywood (who’s entire world is based on make believe) and claim they are being “hypocrites”? How are they hypocrites? If the NRA would like to make movies with fake guns, Hollywood isn’t going to say “That’s evil!”, they’ll say “Great, let us show you how its done”.
        That’s not “Do as i say, not as i do”, that’s “How crazy do you have to be to think what we do for entertainment is somehow applicable in real life?”. Because that is exactly what NRA does. It gives people the impression that the bigger gun you have, the more bad guys will be afraid of you. This is why the assault weapons ban was allowed to expire and no one has even mentioned renewing it. This is why guns like the bushmaster will never be banned, even though there is absolutely no practical hunting or self defense application whatsoever.
        If you don’t know what the word “hypocrite” actually means, please don’t use it.

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        Definition of Hypocrite: A person who engages in the same behaviors he condemns others for. (2) A person who professes certain ideals, but fails to live up to them.
        I believe the term was used correctly as many others on this site are stating their opinions that mirror mine.
        Look, I’m not speaking about the NRA in general. My wife’s a school teacher so the issue of Sandy Hook hits closer than you know so I’m all for bans on assault rifles and other similiar weapons that I feel only a soldier would need in times of war. My issues stem from Weinstein himself. The man has produced several films all of which glorify gun violence (Boondock Saints) and has made a fortune from them. I will also bet you he probably owns several guns himself (whether obtained legally or not is another point of matter) and has hired protection all of whom carry guns all on his behalf. Don’t be so niave to think differently regarding this man nor his intentions. If this was a person like Ghandi (or Meryl Streep) stating this I wouldn’t compain or dispute their intentions as they are pure. Again, this isn’t just about the NRA it’s also because he stated “I want to ban all guns” during his interview.

      • Murdoch

        Yeah, you lost me after “I will also bet you he probably owns several guns himself “. Right, and George W Bush was “probably” an Al Qaeda operative.
        I hope you enjoy equating fake, harmless and universally beloved escapist entertainment to an actual, legal lobby that has made it its mission to suppress even the most basic calls for responsible gun sales by pushing paranoid and fictional hero fantasies where every person with a gun is free to dish out whatever brand of justice or revenge their sick, twisted mind comes up with. Oh, most of those fantasies involve people with no priors just snapping and killing innocent people? Well, maybe those innocent people should purchase more guns. You know, just like the answer to diabetes is to eat more sugar, and the answer to heart disease is to eat more red meat. Its perfectly logical.
        Also, having a wife who’s a teacher isn’t enough. I’ll take your thoughts seriously after she gets shot in a school shooting. You might not have to wait too long. We just had one in Nevada, and another one in New Mexico, so i’m pretty sure your state is coming up next.

        I’m sorry I can’t hear a word you are saying up there on your high horse. Shut the fuck up! No one gives a shit about your “opinions”. Another person not understanding the word “Accountability”. Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. End of story. Gun don’t magically grow legs and start killing innocent people. After this I’m sure you’ll go after the evil of cars from all of the drunk driving related accidents that occur a year. I’m tired of your endless rants. When you hear that bump in the night make sure you arm yourself with a tampon as you would hate to be a “hypocrite” against your own cause Douchebag. Over this conversation as you’ve been bitching about something that clearly has gone well over your head. By the way I have a masters in finance so I don’t need to get educated. Your opinion means jack shit as you’ve been bitching on everyone’s comments on here. Also Weinstein has had several stories and even a documentary showing how he has bullied and intimidated others to get to the top. Several of which have claimed that he has paid others who, shockingly, have had guns *gasp* in order to send his message.

        You saying things like “having a wife who’s a teacher isn’t enough. I’ll take your thoughts seriously after she gets shot in a school shooting” make me wanna punch you in your vagina. Just so we are clear. You’re a sad and pathetic person who is so blinded by their obsession about the “evils” of guns that you seem to forget history and accountability (another word I can happily define for you to understand). Again, I don’t even own a gun but if some young single girl who weighs a whopping 100 lbs wants to own a gun in order to keep predators from breaking into her home than I’m not gonna be the person who tells her that she doesn’t have a right to defend herself. Just last week some old granny shot and killed some intruder in her home. So for every rebuttal you give about some psycho killing people or shooting up a theater there is another showing the positive for why guns should be legalized. This conversation started off by me commenting that I find it hypocritical for a person like Harvey Weinstein making a film bashing the NRA and commenting that he would like to ban all guns as he himself has hired people in the past who carry guns to protect him. And yes he also has produced films (Boondock Saints a film that I love) that glorify gun use and vigilante behavior. So the key word for you to learn today is….”HYPOCRITE”. Whatever, I’m over the conversation as it’s like talking to a wall.

  • Midnight Max

    …and I just joined the NRA.

  • Jotun

    How about a movie about the lack of mental illness awareness and treatment in this country? How about a movie to try to make bad parents not want to live? The fact is that it’s not a gun issue, it’s a mental illness issue. I’m so sick of these shallow self absorbed Hollywood types pushing their ignorant views on people.

    • Murdoch

      So are you saying mental illness and violent movies only exist in america? Are you implying that bad parenting only exists in america? Is there anything, other than a constitutionally guaranteed right to own guns as well as a national lobby that somehow manages to make people forget about mass shootings of dozens of young children only weeks after it happens and instead chooses to focus on bullshit like movies and tv and video games, all while selling more guns & ammo than ever before by stoking fears of a supposed “gun ban” that has been in the works ever since the kenyan, secret muslim came into power (using falsified documents) to overthrow america from within?
      There’s a reason why american education is dead last in damn near every subject. NRA would NEVER work in any other western nation full of educated people except ours.

      • Jotun

        The NRA is responsible for our bad public education? Seriously? I’m not saying that no other country has mental illness issues or violent movies. What I am saying is instead of blaming the tool, look at the user and the CAUSE. Go look at Chicago’s gun violence rate, the highest in the country. Clearly, gun laws are not the problem, the crazy people are.

      • Murdoch

        Way to miss my point entirely. No, the NRA has nothing to do with american education. However, only in america is the belief that having as many tools as citizens will NOT lead to more usages of said tool. Australia doesn’t have as many guns as citizens, but with strict gun laws, it also hasn’t had any mass shootings ever since those laws were passed after a “Sandy hook” like massacre forced them into action. The NRA’s response? Australia is different. They’re not like us.
        Agreed. They’re not Paranoid. They’re not gullible.
        As for the Chicago gun laws (or the NY gun laws, or the LA gun laws) having gun laws or restriction in one city that is part of a larger country (throughout which guns are just as easy to purchase as before said laws were passed) are completely useless.
        You want to know how many other nations in the world associate failed gun laws in ONE city (surrounded by cities that have no restrictions at all) as an indicator that gun laws are ineffective? Its this one. The same one where every school shooting leads to gun stores selling out of all their inventory, because gun owners are afraid that new federal restrictions will be put into place . . . even though that has NEVER happened. Hell, we can’t even require background checks for guns bought at gun shows. Why? because we’re all fucking idiots.

      • Jotun

        Actually, there have been Federal restrictions put on guns many times throughout the years. Read into it. Top government officials regularly talk about more gun restrictions, maybe this is why people get paranoid that there will be more restrictions? It’s not just blind paranoia. I wouldn’t want to live in a country where insane criminals can get a hold of black market guns but responsible law abiding citizens can’t own a gun to defend themselves.

      • Murdoch

        Name me a recent shooting suspect that had to buy their guns from a black market dealer and i’ll give you a million dollars. Oh, there’s no need for black market dealers because of all the legal gun stores? Again, American intelligence at work.

      • Jotun

        You missed the point. Looking into a future with no gun stores, where will criminals get guns?

      • Murdoch

        Ok, let me re-phrase that question: Name me one western country that has placed strict gun control measures in the last ten years where a mass shooting has taken place with illegal, black market guns and i’ll take your word for it.

      • Jotun

        I’m not worried about the mass shooting aspect of gun control being tightened. I’m worried about armed robbery/burglary/murder that can be prevented if the victim was legally able to arm themselves. Many more deaths come from instances like this than mass shootings. Most of these mass shootings fall within mental illness issues. That’s what I’d like to see fixed.

      • Murdoch

        So you’re in favor of incorporating a clean psych history as part of the minimum requirement before the legal purchase of guns? Because here’s kicker: The NRA is vehemently against it.

      • Giordano Klar

        Describe a law that would have stopped Adam Lanza from shooting up Sandy Hook.

      • Murdoch

        Really? Oh god, that’s too easy – NO MORE SEMI-AUTO RIFLE SALES FOR PRIVATE USE. Let’s start there. The only reasonable way THAT military grade weapon can be used in self defense would be to protect oneself against a horde of zombies. There is no recreational or self-defense application for that thing unless you consider mass shootings a recreation. Don’t believe me? Ask James Holmes.

      • Giordano Klar

        Whoopsie. Try again. Banning semi-automatic rifles would not have stopped Adam Lanza from shooting up Sandy Hook Elementary.

      • Murdoch

        Ohhh, riiiight. Because he didn’t use a semi-auto bushmaster rifle. . . . . just like America never landed on the moon .. . . . 9/11 was an inside job . . .. and the true purpose of the invasion of iraq was too look for buried treasure. Gotcha, GK! Now please go back to whichever paranoid, mentally ill corner of the internet you accidentally stumbled in here from.

      • Giordano Klar

        Ahhhh, how sad. You failed again. Adam Lanza had two handguns with him – a Glock 10mm and a Sig-Sauer 9mm.

      • Murdoch

        HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

        Oh, you gun nuts kill me! Figuratively, cause sooner or later, we’re all going to be killed literally!

        Here, you can watch a video of the coroner’s report about what he dug out of those children’s bodies yourself:
        http://video.msnbc.msn.com/msnbc/50210025#50210025

      • Giordano Klar

        LOL. Maybe you’re not aware of this, but bullets kill whether they come out of a Bushmaster or out of a handgun. Adam Lanza did not need the Bushmaster to do what he did. HE ALSO BROUGHT TWO HANDGUNS into the school. He also had a shotgun which he left in his vehicle. Shall we ban ALL those types of firearms?

      • Murdoch

        You didn’t watch the report, did you? Because either you didn’t and can’t help but spout nonsense, or you did and are now claiming that even though the coroner himself just told you he killed 26 people with a bushmaster in the few minutes it took police to respond (something that even a veteran marine couldn’t do with 2 handguns), we should instead talk about whether or not we should ban ALL guns? Even though this entire topic began when you claimed that banning bushmasters wouldn’t have mattered because Adam Lanza didn’t even use one?
        I’m sorry, unlike you, i don’t have the same ADHD rattled mind that the NRA preys upon. I’m done entertaining your mental illness. Have fun shooting down random strangers when you finally snap. I suggest starting with the fluckers that helped raise you first. There needs to be a bit of good news in every tragic shooting.

      • Giordano Klar

        Don’t be deliberately obtuse. This whole discussion began with me challenging you to describe a law that would have kept Adam Lanza from shooting up Sandy Hook. I said nothing about a Bushmaster. You’re the one who implied that banning semi-autos would have kept Adam Lanza from doing his evil deed.

        You know perfectly well that banning semi-autos would not have kept Adam Lanza from going on a murderous rampage.

        During this whole discussion you’ve used countless personal insults and profanity, and now you suggest that I should kill my own parents.

        I hope you grow out of this phase of immaturity. In the meantime you should not be allowed anywhere near a voting booth, or a weapon of any sort.

        I hope you grow out of this phase of immaturity. In the meantime you should not be allowed anywhere near a voting booth, or a weapon of any sort.

        You didn’t watch the report, did you? Because either you didn’t and can’t help but spout nonsense, or you did and are now claiming that even though the coroner himself just told you he killed 26 people with a bushmaster in the few minutes it took police to respond (something that even a veteran marine couldn’t do with 2 handguns), we should instead talk about whether or not we should ban ALL guns? Even though this entire topic began when you claimed that banning bushmasters wouldn’t have mattered because Adam Lanza didn’t even use one?
        I’m sorry, unlike you, i don’t have the same ADHD rattled mind that the NRA preys upon. I’m done entertaining your mental illness. Have fun shooting down random strangers when you finally snap. I suggest starting with the fluckers that helped raise you first. There needs to be a bit of good news in every tragic shooting.

        “There’s a reason why american education is dead last in damn near every subject. NRA would NEVER work in any other western nation full of educated people except ours.”

        That sure sounds like the NRA is a reason for the poor education.

      • Murdoch

        Oh, the reason is because we’re all fucking idiots .. . . did you not catch that part? Here, let me say it again: We’re all fucking idiots. In fact, any country that places the right to guns higher than the right to affordable healthcare deserves to have 30,000 people die from suicides and homicides each year.

      • Jotun

        I didn’t know suicides and homicides could only take place with guns.

      • Murdoch

        They don’t. but only in a country with 300 million guns do 30,000 end up taking someone’s life.

      • Jotun

        They do require background checks at gun shows. Ever bought a gun?

        Don’t feel too bad. Most gun advocates have no idea how easy it is to buy a gun in this country.

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    There is almost nothing more hypocritical than anti-gun lobby coming out of Hollywood. Of course, given his reputation, this is just a way for Mr. Scissorhands to drum up some free publicity for his movie.

  • Reina

    Well damn this makes me REALLY happy.

  • NRA 4 LIFE

    Attacking guns, the NRA, and responsible gun owners is pathetic. That’s like attacking cars because of all the people killed by them each year. Liberal filth is disgusting.

  • Mixed Race rich kid NYC

    Let’s hope Harvey Weinstein and Meryl Streep have done the right thing and disarmed their bodyguards.

    • Murdoch

      Ah, the old NRA line about “Why are the president’s daughters protected by armed guards?” Here’s why: Armed guards are (by definition) trained professionals. They have not only been trained to handle violent offenders (many are former cops or military) but also are fully capable of understanding the effects of guns (ie they only shoot bullets, don’t protect against them. Making that old Wayne LaPierre line about “good guys” and “bad guys with guns” utter horseshit).

      But NRA doesn’t want to push that little inconvenient truth, does it? It wants people to think the second you buy gun, your chances of survival are directly proportional to how big the gun is and how many bullets it can fire. And once you buy the biggest gun with the biggest clip, you’re just as well versed in the usage of firearms as a 10 yr veteran of the force. I mean, you’ve seen guns used in movies to bring down a whole terrorist cell, right? How hard can it be to use one?

      “Alright, let’s require a certain number of hours of training before people are allowed to purchase a weapon” NRA – You’re infringing our 2nd amendment rights. “Ok, how about we limit clip sizes so if and when a shooter does go on a rampage, they at least have to stop to reload after they’ve killed about a dozen people dead?” NRA – You’re infringing our 2nd amendment rights. “Fine, let’s at least limit the size or caliber of guns, so that if someone were to get shot, it wouldn’t be an automatic death sentence and there would be at least SOME chance that doctors can save them.” NRA – You’re infringing our 2nd amendment rights. “Well jeez, how the hell do we defend our citizens against people with any number of psych disorders who are allowed to buy whichever gun they want with however many bullets they can carry?” NRA – Oh, that’s easy: Buy a gun.

      • Giordano Klar

        Why don’t you just be honest and admit that you are in favor of outlawing all guns.
