Yet another Hollywood liberal, uneducated on firearms, is taking a stance on gun control.
This time, it’s weirdo Kristen Stewart.
During the Brady Center Bear Awards, a place where celebrities go to applaud each other for supporting gun control, the actress warned about the dangers of playing with toy guns and that it was time to dispel the idea that they are cool.
This awards ceremony honored the nutty Chelsea Handler, who refers to gun ownership as a “hobby” rather than a right.
In attendance, January Jones, Tom Arnold, and The Voice champion Alisan Porter. Will Ferrell also attended and served as “auctioneer” for the evening.
And, obviously, Stewart was there.
According to People, Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, praised Stewart’s attendance.
He said she had approached him with the idea about how to push gun control and he was “impressed” with her proposal.
“She came to us because she has something she wants to do with this issue. She eagerly shared her idea and without hesitation and is showing up tonight. She is committed to actually doing something, not just lending her name.”
No specifics were given regarding this apparently earth-shattering idea.
People did report that it will revolve around taking “classic American depictions of our fascination with guns” and put a new message on it.
Stewart spoke about using images to change the way Americans perceive what is considered to be “comforting.” And talked about how we need to work to keep children from playing with toy guns because it convinces them that real guns can offer protection when they grow up:
One of them involved the shattering of the idea that it’s cool to play with toy guns and little kids grow up thinking that’s going to protect and empower them. We kind of take that idea and go, ‘Actually this is something else that could happen,’ and that needs to be considered by people who might not think about that kind of thing.
Stewart’s filmography includes American Ultra, a film about an unorthodox government agent who has to fight for his life after being targeted for death. Stewart’s character uses firearms to help the agent defend himself.
Obviously, if they are paying for you, it’s different. Duh!
It’s okay if I use guns in movies to defend myself. But in real life? You are a criminal for supporting people’s right to bear arms and should be ashamed!
Oh, the hypocrisy of Hollywood…
