Posted on 04/19/2013 12:52:20 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Paul McCartney lent his voice to the gun control proponents this week. The former Beatle joined singer Tony Bennett's "Voices Against Violence" campaign which allows Americans supporter tougher new regulations on the gun control issue to text a number to receive contact information for their local legislator.
McCartney, a British citizen, is the latest celebrity to join Bennett's push for harsher gun control regulations. Gloria Estefan, Alec Baldwin, Rosie O'Donnell and Josh Groban are some of the other voices callers will hear in addition to Paul McCartney's plea that nobody has to "Live and Let Die" in his view.
"Tell [your] congressperson that you support common-sense laws that keeps guns out of the hands of the wrong people: Enough is enough, please add your voice to end gun violence," Paul McCartney's recording read.
Bennett himself was the subject of major criticism when he likened the United States to Nazi Germany because of the existence of the right to bear arms in the Constitution...

Did his latest wife tell him to think that?
seriously paul, shut your effing eurosocialist trash mouth. go back to your own wimp-ass, welfare, godless, disarmed country being overtaken by muslims.
Imagine - no liberals
She gave him a leg up, I believe.
“Freeeeedom. We’re talking about freeeeedom!”
How quickly they forget.
Happiness is a warm gun...
So Tony Bennethinks thinks we are like Nazi Germany which had strict gun control, because we do not have gun control?
Sounds like Paul did too much “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” when he and John were writing and performing together. People who are not brain damaged know that it’s better to be armed than drugged up when a criminal starts a gunfight.
Instead of criticizing gun owners, he should be thanking them......
And, tell me, Paul, how many armed body guards do you have? You hypocrite jerk.
Oh, and why do you look like a woman?
He refuses to do a Voices against Violence concert in Chicago.
No Paul.... we’re not interested in having our country become a euro hellhole under sharia law, like yours is rapidly becoming.
Interesting Gloria Estefan, part of a family of CUBAN immigrants, would push for this as well. Hey Gloria... how has gun control worked out for the people in YOUR native land???
Mind your manners in America, y'all don't own it any more.
McCartney is a has-been who’s been peddling nauseating drivel ever since the Beatles split.
Paul, how much did you make from “Happiness is a Warm Gun”?
Excellent.. and I’’ll ad, Sir Paul, Let it be.
Bang Bang Shoot Shoot.
How soon they forget their origins.
Paul has armed bodyguards. What a hypocrite.
guess he want to be “Back in the USSR”
Funny thing is, no one disagrees with keeping the guns away from criminals and psychos.
Only the current laws being proposed are intended to take the guns away from EVERYONE (not just the 'wrong people')
Go away Paul....you are so over
He’d better not come through the bathroom window.
As far as I am concerned, he can go his ass back to England.
Paul dropped a little too much acid back in the day.
The dumbest Beatle speaks!
Sit down and shut up, you stupid git.
You’re nothing but an old hag looking for attention again.
You’re finished. Retire. Wanker.
If John Lennon had a gun, he might still be alive.
If Yoko had a gun, it would be a more pleasant singer than her
Actually, it was yesterday, even before it was yesterday. Meaning that many years ago the whole concept of gun control was proved to be so flawed, it was ineffective. (Well, ineffective in reducing violent crime - obviously Dims eternally hope for terrible events like Newtown to make "gun control" effective ... at the ballot box.)
Foreigners who come here and inject themselves into our politics, ought to be kicked out. They and their entire extended family ought to be on a three or four-generation long probation, until they prove themselves worthy of the name, American.
Why do I fantasize about laws that have no basis in current law or tradition?... Because, imo, the entire legal system is going to be revamped after the looming domestic upheaval ahead, Father let it not be violent.
There’s more chance of it being fought on icebergs than being non-violent. Think about who we’re up against. The people who had no problem lighting Gov. Sarah Palin’s church on fire with women and children inside. People who have no problem with 50 million dead babies, including that abortion nightmare in Pennsylvania.. People who think the “Tea Baggers” ought to be rounded up and treated like European Jews under Hitler and Stalin. People who think that Pol Pot was onto something and Che Guevarra was a hero.
He’s talking about UK, I assume, because if he’s talking about the US he can go pound sand. We have enough aholes over here trying to grab the guns.
I haven’t listened to his drivel in years, and it has nothing to do with his political views, which are, I’m sure, far left if the company he keeps is any indication.
Don't want to see violence because, imo, we won't escape unscathed. We only have a sample size of one to go by, but if the first Civil War is any indication, when Americans take up arms against one another, it results in some of the nastiest, bloodiest, brutal fighting the world has ever seen. I'm scared of a repeat on a much larger scale. Too many young people have been fully brainwashed and converted to the other side and they're likely to make the Khmer Rouge look like amateurs. The baby boomers among them are cowards, but their young are capable of anything. imo
