It does work both ways… Anti-gunners need to be reminded that gun owners not only have rights, but clout too! READ ALL ABOUT IT

Based on the results of a Zogby Analytics poll released earlier this month, Second Amendment supporters may have a counter-intuitive message for virtue-signaling Hollywood heavyweights pledging their support for restrictive firearm laws: keep up the good work!

Gun control is gaining renewed social currency in some circles in the wake of the Parkland, Fla. tragedy. Hollywood, to no one’s surprise, has eagerly jumped on the bandwagon, with stars, starlets, and studio honchos displaying their usual self-importance and grasping desire for the spotlight.

Celebrities issued tweets within hours of the event making vague demands for America to “do something,” parroting antigun talking points, and attacking the NRA. Barely two days later, some of Tinseltown’s richest denizens were shoveling money toward the so-called March for Our Lives in support of gun control. Billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown gun control organization, meanwhile, distributed orange American flag pins for “actors and allies” to wear at the Academy Awards ceremony in solidarity with the group’s agenda. That event’s featured musical number also included a rapper insisting God disapproves of the NRA. And of course late night talk show hosts have recently devoted entire segments to demonizing the NRA and hyping gun control.

The antigun themes emanating from the West Coast entertainment establishment were so pervasive that they seemed almost scripted and coordinated by some unseen hand. Perhaps some of this was due to the work of the Everytown Creative Council, a coalition of gun-averse celebrities that pledges to use their “communications skills and the power of culture to galvanize many more Americans” in support of gun control and to “drive real change.” Members of the council, for example, organized the cast of a sitcom to create a video that promotes the March for Our Lives, takes shots at the NRA, and pretends that more restrictive laws could end firearm-related violence once and for all.

According to the Zogby poll, however, all these efforts have actually done a great service to the Second Amendment.

The 869 likely voters polled where asked, “When Hollywood actors and actresses speak out about gun control, does that make you want to support or oppose our constitutional right to bear arms (the 2nd amendment to the constitution)?”

The results indicated that the antigun opinions of Hollywood’s elite were twice as likely overall to elicit support for the Second Amendment as they were to provoke opposition to the right to keep and bear arms.

The pollsters noted:

A majority (56% strongly and somewhat support combined) of voters want to support their constitutional right to bear arms when they hear Hollywood actors and actresses speak out about gun control. This is compared to 28% (strongly and somewhat oppose combined) of voters who want to oppose the 2nd amendment when Hollywood talks about banning guns.

The pro-Second Amendment effect of Hollywood’s antigun intervention held across every age group, race, and political affiliation represented by the poll. And in a finding sure to worry the film industry’s financiers, Millennials were the age group most strongly moved in support of the Second Amendment by actors and actresses speaking out about gun control (65% support/23% oppose). This echoed the findings of another poll that Millennials identified the right to bear arms as “very” personally meaningful at the highest rate of any age group, with 60% providing this response.

Zogby’s own analysis of its result stated: “As we approach the November midterms, gun control will be a hot button issue, but according to the data, Hollywood interjecting itself into the debate makes even the Democratic base want to bear arms.” It further warned: “The numbers among young voters, African Americans, Hispanics and even Democrats prove the gun debate could be a tricky strategy for Democrats looking to take back power in both houses of Congress in the 2018 midterm elections.”

We have often mentioned the obvious hypocrisy of Hollywood elites lecturing the rest of the country on the evils of firearms, including here, here, and here. As annoying as their posturing is, however, it seems they have been doing gun owners a favor by pushing opinion in favor of the Second Amendment across virtually every segment of American society.

What else can we say at this point but … hooray for Hollywood (and thanks to Everytown for its role in this drama as well)! Perhaps, as Zogby’s analysis noted, their continued involvement could contribute to making the 2018 elections end happily for supporters of the right to keep and bear arms.

  1. How many people have quit going to movies the the Hollywood lefty gun grabbers star in because the “star” is busy shooting people and blowing them up in their movie and totally destroying a moviegoer’s willing suspension of disbelief? I know my wife and I have nearly stopped going because of that.

    We did however, recently really enjoy watching “Risen”.

  2. It’s interesting that movies stars usually have guns and violence in their movies but yet want gun control. I guess if everyone is disgusted with guns and violence there will be no more movies or movie stars

  3. Hollywood movies are little more than Leftist propaganda any more. Hollywood movies today are so packed with Feminist/SJW/Anti-White Male/Homosexual agendas that they are virtually un-watchable. Add to that the arrogance and hypocrisy of actors like Stallone, Neeson, and other “action heroes” and their ilk who not only use guns in every movie they’re in (usually killing people) but who walk around surrounded by sub-gun toting security – who then have the gall to tell regular Americans to give up their guns …. Well, I’d love to see Hollywood go away. I haven’t paid to see any of their movies in at least 15 years – and probably never will again.

    To add to that: My neighbor – who has always been kind of on the fence about owning a gun – went out and bought two (and wants me to teach him how to shoot). He said the primary reason he went out and bought them was because of all of the hysterical anti-gun screeching from the Communists. So, yeah, keep it up Whorrywood!

  4. I dont suport gun control I said 20 ago u need gun trained gaurds metal detectors at the interence no gun mental sick cops on patrol driveing by not on call take the time to drive through parking lot at any time day

    1. Backwoods 10, thanks for the list..I knew many of these companies were anti-gun (Communists) but your list is more inclusive than what I have seen in the past..Always good to know who the enemy is..Kraft Foods has always been anti-gun, but I didn’t see them on the list..Any changes.?? Thank you again Patriot.

  6. I also rarely go to movies for the same reasons. I also replaced Academy Sports in lieu of Dicks Sporting Goods. 2 years ago I gave up Kellogs products and found some General Mills substitutes. My money goes to those who don’t attempt to steer me with their agenda.

  7. With Nazi turn coats like Bloomberg, We need our guns. I would not rule out his money came from Nazi stolen treasure. As far as Horlywood, I never consider those people part of America or at least the working class.I have not paid for a move in ten years and could give 2 shits less if they slid into the ocean.
