The Connecticut school shooting that left 27 people dead including as many as 20 children has prompted Hollywood celebrities to demand stricter gun control because they believe it will prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future.
Too soon to speak out about a gun-crazy nation? No, too late, far-left filmmaker Michael Moore tweeted. At least THIRTY-ONE school shootings since Columbine.
The way to honor these dead children is to demand strict gun control, free mental health care, and an end to violence as public policy, he added.
Screenwriter Kevin Williamson agreed. We need gun control. Stop defending your right to bear arms. Youre stupid, he tweeted.
Pop singer Michelle Branch tweeted: Gun control people!!! My heart is breaking. As a parent this is my worst nightmare.
Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones said that gun control is our only road to freedom via her official Twitter account.
Freedom from the fear of senselessly losing children. Im so saddened. WE NEED LAWS NOW, she added.
CNN host Piers Morgan wondered aloud on Twitter whether President Barack Obama would have the courage to stand up to the American gun lobby. He also tweeted the hashtag #guncontrol.

>>Try that argument with any committed progressivist/Marxist. Just say, So you would prefer that the only people with firearms should be the jack-booted oppressors of the working class? Enjoy watching their heads spin;)
William Burroughs said the same thing “Do you think I would trust only the police and military with guns?”
F*** the anti-gun idiots. They only want tyranny.
For a second there, I thought this was the same Kevin Williamson whose entire career has consisted of blood-splattered, soul-sucking teen slasher movies. I thought that, but then I realized that it would be insane for such a man to even show his face on a day like today, let alone lecture the world on the root cause of senseless violence. Hence, it must be an entirely different screenwriter named Kevin Williamson.
Actually we need more guns, not fewer - I wonder how many more of these incidents we’d have if it were known across the country that every school had a gun available on site, safely stored but ready for immediate access, and at least three staff members trained to use it if needed - at least I have a hunch staff and parents would have a greater feeling of safety, even though in spite of themselves at times.....
There was recently an episode of Law and Order Special Victims unit where a man who had lost his job went on a shooting rampage, killing everything in sight, in multiple locations. I wonder if this crazy schmuck got the inspiration to do what he did from that episode
It was just posted again a few minutes ago, for about the 50th time, the children were not killed, none of them.
These idiot celebs fear freedom. They are pathetic...most own guns or have armed guards. Hypocritical idiots.
Can’t make myself disagree with that statement.
I wonder, if the principal’s office had access to shotguns or rifle and someone who knew how to use it, would that have helped? Either answer (yes or no) is useless inside the woodsy suburban CT “safe” mentality - like the Petit home invasion in Cheshire CT - not a judgment, a fact after many resident years observation. Felt like throwing up after hearing the story of an evil person shooting kindergarteners. I predict “gun control” platitudes will be the only thing that will come out of Connecticut political “leaders”. God save us all.
Calling 911 just did not cut it. What would have?
May God bless Newtown, all of Connecticut & surroundings with grace & peace — then useful wisdom ASAP.
Williams, go watch a movie called “300,” and check out the part where the Persian offers to let the Greeks live if they lay down their arms. Note the response: “Come and take them!” Same to you, and all of your anti-American scumbag friends - if you have the guts.
At this moment I have a police helicopter circling. Long Beach, CA. No light on. Infrared technology. They can see in you’re house. George Orweil is here you little frogs in the pot of water that is getting ever so warmer
With this push for more gun control, it is time to not only push back but push back hard. All of the hollywood idiots need to STFU. They are not paid to give us political opinion, they are paid to entertain us. If I start talking politics with my job in customer support, that would piss my customers off.
When you have a Godless immoral society of self-satisfying hedonists devoid of faith, self-respect and honor , freaks like Lanza will emerge.
And THAT is precisely the kind of society the moral eunuchs in the Movie industry have created with their films and lifestyles.
The left is going to use this to outlaw guns and they will win. The absolute horror of this crime will overwhelm any effort to defend gun ownership. The images of the families of those murdered kids will be shown relentlessly until Congress, especially the House, passes a bill outlawing anything but bolt action hunting rifles and three round shotguns. I can’t see any gun rights defender even thinking of appearing on TV at this time.
Your exactly right, this will be the biggest threat to the Second Amendment ever.
They will surely try as hard as they can.
They will surely try as hard as they can.
These kinds of tragedies are unheard of...
...in North Korea!
And yet these same people celebrate the killing of 1,500,000 babies by dismemberment or salting or suffocation per year.
Don’t these guys have people who bear arms for them, I.e. “security”?
Yep, ironic isn’t it?
Are these “stars” going to give up their armed body guard protection? How about the President and Congress. How about Hillary?
They don’t need armed guards if all the guns are banned, right? They just need to be strong enough to fight off an attacker. They won’t mind doing that like they propose for the rest of us.
When Mayor bloomers disarms his guards and the police, I will believe he really is anti-gun. But he’s a self anointed prince. Guns to protect him...every else can die by the hands of the criminals they let out of prison.
Whatever they want on the people, has to apply to the government, too. They don’t need armed police and guards. They kill innocent people all the time. They don’t need the military being armed, either.
When the economic hammer falls down, at least there will be no demand for these “celebs” tv and movies and no one to watch them. I long for the day that today’s celebs become irrelevant.
Any of them accused Sarah Palin yet?
Yet not one word about the 52 million babies who have had a hole drilled in their skull, their brain sucked out and their bodies burned.
Is that you Brian Ross?
THIS JUST IN FROM FOREIGN PRESS: While the US media cry about gun control, the foreign media point out that an innocent man Ryan Lanza, his face all over the net and on TV, was accused by the US media (and its faithful followers, many of them here) of being a mass murderer!
We need laws now? Like making it illegal to go into a school and murder people? Oh, wait.....
WAR IS PEACE FREEDOM IS SLAVERY IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
The Hollyweirdos really bring the classics to life, don’t they?
Especially Mikey Moore.
When I’ve encountered libs who say only the government should have guns I tell them “the Nazis were a government. They banded gun ownership, look how that worked out’’.
All this from people that would not go any where with out an armed body guard.
It **IS** the same Kevin Williamson. . .
Yeah, that worked well in Nazi Germany, didn't it?
Obviously we need to ban the public school system.
Universal gun-training in the 8th grade would be more like it...
“character actor” is Hollywood for ugly...
Every teacher should be trained and equipped to protect their students.
says the people who live with multiple armed bodyguards and super-secure houses.
the women’s comments show why you don’t base laws on emotions.
I'm in China... it's amazing how many thing you got WRONG in that one short sentence...
There were 22 (not 20) children INJURED (not killed) IN China, (not near)....
That story will only strenthen then gun nuts argument... without guns around, those 22 kids will live... with scars.. but, live.
Why not just make murder illegal, too, while they’re at it.
And all celebrities have armed body guards to protect thier sorry a##es from the cretans that walk amongst us, HYPOCRITICAL A##WIPES
I’m going to the Capitol City Gun Show at the NC State Fairgrounds today near Raleigh.
I’d been toying with the idea, not sure if I’d go, but now I see I have no choice. Liberal clap-trap has me worried once more that they may move to restrict or prevent my access to firearms. So I’ll buy another 1,000 rounds of .223, 9mm luger, and few more 1,000s of .22LR. Need a couple more magazines for my AR15 while I’m at it.
Chinese officials have guns too. They use them to execute dissidents for organ harvesting.
That’s what I was thinking yesterday as my class and I were discussing the event.
It’s exam time at our school, and some students are bearing the bitter fruit of their dismal efforts. But in today’s thinking, their failure is MY fault. What’s to stop one of my students from going “Call of Duty” on me? My thought (to self) was, “Why aren’t I allowed to come to school with a sidearm visibly strapped to my belt?
Then I came to my senses and began to explain to the class our school’s “Active Shooter” procedures for ensuring their safety...the one where, when notified via loudspeaker, I lock the door, turn out the light, and we all huddle in the corner and pretend ‘No one’s home’!...
Yeah, I know...my students laughed, too.
