Quite a list.

They left off my wife.:rolleyes:

January 1, 2003, 09:45 AM
guess I won't be watching much TV, seeing films, or listening to the radio this new year :rolleyes:
but then I don't do much of that anyway

have tape, read any good books lately...

I would like to see a list of pro-gun personalities. I bet it wouldn't take up near that much space which just goes to prove how many Sheeple there are in the entertainment industry, which in turn explains the lack of quality entertainment.

God made man. Sam Colt made them equal

January 1, 2003, 10:22 AM
I didn't see any country/western singers on that list...

Did I just miss them, or did they not get considered, or are c/w performers more freedom oriented?

(I don't keep up with the new stuff much - still stuck on Haggard & Jones, etc ...) :)

January 1, 2003, 10:29 AM
well, at least the "REAL" celebrities are not among them, like Arnold Schwarznegger, Sly Stallone, JC Van Damme, and of course ... CHARLTON HESTON!
and than to say that I was planing to rent austin powers 3, as soon as it came out on video, but knowing this: in your face mike myers :neener:

January 1, 2003, 10:40 AM
Sly Stallone is ANTI, in a big way... real strange, considering the roles he's played.

This is a reasonable list with reguard to what they do to make a living. When they spend this much time in fantasy land, removed from the real world, why not think things can be just and perfect. If they really had to live and work in some of the cesspools of the world reality might smack them in the mouth.

January 1, 2003, 12:14 PM
Lets see a list with the pro gun celebs.

January 1, 2003, 12:26 PM
Sly Stallone is ANTI, in a big way... real strange, considering the roles he's played.

Nah. Like the many of the losers listed, money can buy anything, especially principles.

"But, uh, like yo, it was a really good role. I neeeeeeded it, as an acktor!"

January 1, 2003, 12:43 PM
I'm sorry,I have a problem taking these people seriously.
In my opinion they don't "do" anything for a living,completly
removed from the regular folks.
If the actors really felt strongly about it, they wouldn't be in
movies with a lot of gun play.Not gonna happen.$$$.
Its pretty sad when the majority of people take what these
yoyo's say as gospel!
AAAHHHHH...there now,the first rant of the new year.Much better!

Nice list of hypocrites.:scrutiny:

I guess none of them has or will ever star in a movie that features a gun.:rolleyes:

January 1, 2003, 12:50 PM
I didn't see any country/western singers on that list...

Shania Twain

Minnie Mouse
Micky Mouse
Snow White

and almost all of their friends..they are all Disney..yes?

January 1, 2003, 01:00 PM
Shania Twain

She sings ....? :p

I thought she was just another belly button.

Okay, I stand (sit, actually) corrected. But I bet Hank Williams, Jr would be near the top of the "good guy" list. ("I got a shotgun, rifle, and a 4 wheel drive, and country boy can survive ...")

January 1, 2003, 01:13 PM
Arnold Schwarznegger is in favor of "some gun control".

Robby from Long Island
January 1, 2003, 01:46 PM
Bruce H said it perfectly.

This list has floated around the 'net for some years now and is in need of updating. Some of the people on it are dead -- Rod Steiger and Rosemary Clooney, for instance -- and therefore aren't likely to be campaigning much against guns. A few others -- Madonna and Geraldo, for example -- have reportedly softened their positions (Madonna has taken up shotgunning and Geraldo now boasts of having a handgun).

I'd be more interested in this if there was some evidence it was still current.

I also agree that a list of pro-freedom celebrities would be far more useful. Most people in the infotainment business are socialists; what we need is a list of the few who are not.

January 1, 2003, 02:42 PM
It would be interesting to know how many on that list own guns.

In Detroit Mi., we have a councilwoman named Sharon McPhail, who was active in creating a new gun prohibition zone. Violation of this zone would result in a misdemeanor for the "average Joe" like you or me. However, she was busted a few years back for carrying concealed at the airport and recieved a mere warning. She claimed she was in a hurry, and forgot about the pistol. I wonder if she would be as understanding if one of us claimed that we forgot we were armed because we were in a hurry?

It seems that more that a few celebreties would like to outlaw all guns except theirs.:fire:

January 1, 2003, 02:43 PM
What makes me crazy is that although I have no way to prove it, you can be sure there are plenty of names on that list that should have an asterisk that identifies them for all the world to see as * Gun Owner . :what: Kind of like Sen. Feinstein having a Concealed Carry Permit.

God save us from Limousine Liberals. geegee

January 1, 2003, 02:52 PM
How many have armed bodyguards?:rolleyes:

January 2, 2003, 04:45 AM
yep, these "celebreties" are :cuss: hypocrites, may they :fire: in hell :evil:
first, they act in movies featuring a large amount of guns, and than, when the money is in the pocket, they are telling the world that "guns are baaad" :what:
excuse me sir, but these people make me wanna puke my guts out :banghead:
