This was talked about last month when the two were reported buying a bunch of guns in Beverly Hills. Well, here's a yahoo.com news link to a photo (w/ guns). These two very photogenic people posed at a local gun club. Yes, they have poor trigger discipline... oh well, it was staged, so I'm sure the guns were unloaded. Say what you will about these two, but it proves that gun ownership has gone mainstream. Click link for photo.

Los Angeles (E! Online) - We, like you, suffer occasional bouts of Speidi-induced fatigue.

But then they go and put so much effort into their stagey photo shoots that we just don't have the heart to ignore them. With these two it's never, "Oh, look there's Matthew McConaughey shirtless again!"

No, these two know how to keep it interesting. Like yesterday, when they decided pack some heat for an afternoon at the firing range doing their best Starsky & Hutch impersonation.

This gun-toting twosome seem to be aiming to find something to set them apart from all the other reality show goofballs, and we wouldn't bet against them.

For one, Heidi clearly believes in the right to bare arms. And legs. And Spencer, well, you just know he's ready to pull out the big guns to make his goals happen.

So dream big, kids. And keep those safeties on, OK?

I still have no idea who they are. I must watch the wrong channels. I'm glad they are helping to make guns a more common sight in the hands of the good guys though, as long as they do it responsibly and legally.
Do they have CHLs? The article made it sound like they did ("Pack some heat") but they were going to a range...and in **********.

I think those are some kids from one of those MTV shows... I read an article a while back and I believe that was the girl they were talking about...

Yep...here you go everybody...I always see the questions about which celebutard is pro or anti...

BEHOLD!!! Pics and video of the best Hollywood pro-gun celebs you could ever hope for.

Heidi and Spencer (http://pacificcoastnewsonline.celebuzz.com/2008/07/heidi-and-spencer-right-on-tar-2.html) - video is down the page, 53 page photo spread by clicking on the picture embed in the story.

This is full of epic fail.

Looks like a publicity stunt to me,and the article,was,again for myself,a little 'drama-tacky'.

Looks like incredibly poor publicity, seeing as they are pretty well known for their monumental bouts of stupidity.

And I second the "Epic Fail" comment

Yikes! Somebody needs to talk to both of them about rules #1, 2, and 3. When they were sitting at the table in the first part of the video, they violated at least those. I woulda slapped 'em both upside the head(gently).

OK so their trigger discipline sucks,

Oh those are the Wilson's they purchased.

For everyone asking who they are the are famous for being in several MTV reality shows, And for security reasons I can see why they got them.

They act like goobers in the video. Just like, oh I don't know a million other people who post their vids on YouTube. They have bad trigger discipline and don't know where to keep the muzzle pointed. Can you blame them? They're from Hollywood, where most gunplay is learned on set. Other than that, it's two people enjoying a day at the range.

While I am not a fan of these two, those people calling them stupid should back up and think for a second. These two play the PR game REALLY REALLY well. They do stage a lot of their photos and even work it out with the photographer to get paid for the photos. They have both made millions for "acting" like an idiot. And yes they do work from the all press is good press philosophy, but they are definitely getting paid.

I didn't call them stupid. I'm assuming they're trainable or I wouldn't have suggested it, although my suggested method might be a little rough for the first time around. :evil:

After all, it worked for me...

I'm sure there Hollywierd address are available --Write them and educate them about the 10 gun safety rules! I'm sure though they already have been corrected and will do better in the future !
I hope we get more Celebs on our side!
Especially ROCK stars . If you have ever read ROLLING STONE mag you understand why !

I know nothing about these two, but it seems like somebody's in the background couching. It might be they just need to find a better expert.

Hey at least they bought guns, two more people making "assault" weapons even more common.

Two Wilson Combat CQBs, two Benelli M4s, and a Springfield M1A Scout shows they've at least got the sense to go to a gunstore with good taste.

I, like maay others here, don't really know who they are but from what I've read here in posts and the limited reading from the net linked articles, they just seem like the current crop of "dumb celebrities"

Come on, they're actors and actresses and that what they get paid to do. Do you really think Jessica Simpson is that "blonde"? they're smarter than we give them credit for and they have the American young crowd eating out of ther hands. Perhaps, over time(hopefully) they will prove themselves to be responsible firearms owners and will give good press for the rest of us.

Maybe Ted Nugent will invite them to go shooting with him.

I wonder if they ever heard of Ted Nugent.

Wow. Some celebrity of some sort or other decides to do something that portrays firearms in some kind of non-sinister fashion and all some people here can do is criticize their technique or question their motives.

"Shooting looks like it would be a fun hobby, but I'm afraid I might do something wrong and the bunch over at The High Road will jump on my case. Oh, well...."

While I appreciate the help in spreading the word, I would really hate for one to shoot the other, that wouldn't look very good for us. Everyone needs to know and obey the 4 rules. Not just us common folk, everyone. There is NO EXCUSE for poor trigger discipline.

All it takes is one accident, and our previous blessing of celebrity backer of the 2A is a huge media story at best and an anti at the worst. I would like to also point out that the guy pointed an AR directly at the camera, with a mag in, finger on the trigger. It's too bad I wasn't the cameraman.

This is what makes me say that they need to offer some kind of gun safety classes to kids in school. It makes so little sense not to teach this stuff. Then you can rule out ignorance and blame stupidity.

They aren't stupid.

What they are is: young, untrained, and from an area where firearms handling is the exception rather than the norm. They are simply in need of decent instruction.

We may think they are goobers, but fortunately it isn't just the cool people who get to own guns. That video basically showed what I perceived to be "shiny new toys syndrome." They just got these guns and the novelty of actually owning and shooting a firearm was still very new to them. Make certain that they learn safe handling practices and cut them some slack.

David904

And if I had been the cameraman, I would have scalped that kid for pointing the AR at me. The bolt was closed, the dust cover open... There could very well have been a live round in the chamber.

Safety training. That's what they need - not huge piles of criticism.

I think that so many gun accidents could be stopped by a proper public education program. Instead of the media and school systems spending so much time on telling kids that guns are bad, don't touch guns, they really need to take the time and show kids how to safely handle a gun.

I think that gun safety is just as important as any other subject, even math or physics. It is so simple, takes so little time to teach. It's not like you have to obey the 10 axioms of a vector space.

I am not sure I am willing to confuse what these two are doing as a legitimate interest in firearms. What they are interested in...and have done successfully, is to get all of us visiting the website hosting the video and pictures. (self included...since I passed along the video link)

Good for them if they shoot. Better for them if they are taking it up as both a hobby and a cause.

....somehow I doubt that either of the above is the case.

Here's the problem - actors that are type-cast as drooling morons (or perhaps just stupid IRL also) merely serves to reinforce the antis' stereotype that gun owners = idiots/rednecks/untrustworthy due to gross incompetence.

We need celebs like Chuck Heston again - guys and gals who are brilliant, well-spoken, and charismatic. We don't need people that are renowned for their ability to be stupid and infuriate others, which is what these two are known for.

But than, I shouldn't have been watching The Hills in the first place.
