Let's not make this a .jpg fest, but...

Just to pick up your day.

Milla Jovovich (actress, model) Zoolander, Joan of Arc, Resident Evil, The Fifth Element...

http://www.millaj.com/milla_index.html

First, the gun stuff:
From: Anonymous Date: 8/9/2002
A New York Metro article about her:

Don't be surprised to find Milla Jovovich joining NRA president Charlton Heston at a gun-rights rally. After several months of combat training to prepare for her role as a zombie killer in Resident Evil, a new sci-fi movie based on the popular video game, the starlet has a newfound affinity for firearms and has become a regular at her local Los Angeles shooting range. "I love guns," she told us while signing autographs at Planet Hollywood in Times Square last week. "I just get such a sense of power. The karate and kickboxing was okay, but give me a gun and I can do serious damage." She doesn't have her own gun yet, but may get one soon: "A handgun, obviously -- I mean, the machine guns are a little heavy and complicated."
Now, for the obligatory chicks w/ guns .jpgs:

Yes, that's true.

But the media buries this kind of stuff. It's an ingrained bias. Just as many reporters will say that they can't publish stories of defensive uses of guns because "it sends the wrong message," they are nearly as unlikely to go out of their way to publicize something like this.

Yes, her story (a paragraph of it) was in a magazine. But when the media wants something known (to promote a liberal cause, book, movie, person), they print it in multiple magazines and have multiple appearances on the Today Show with perky Katie Couric throwing up softball questions to put her fave socialist in the best light. On the rare ocassion that Katie's producers schedule a conservative (I can't remember the last time I saw a libertarian there), the questions will be quite confrontational. The liberal will be labeled as a "moderate," if at all, while the conservative will have a banner under his name such as "Conservative," or "Rightwing author."

Think how many times someone like Al Franken was next to Katie Couric pushing his latest book. Several (see www.mrc.org for more leftwing media bias).

On the other hand, Ann Coulter, if she is lucky, will get one appearance. Laura Ingraham hasn't been on yet and hers is a best seller.

The media (and I mean all of it), are in the business of propaganda and marketing. They have a viewpoint and they wish to sell it. From Disney selling Hillary Duff or Raven, to Good Morning America, Oprah, and Rosie giving the Million Mom Marcher tens of millions dollars worth of FREE advertising that a gun group could only dream of.

Dang. I got up on my soapbox again. Please scroll up and look at the pretty pictures again. :D

"I just get such a sense of power. The karate and kickboxing was okay, but give me a gun and I can do serious damage."

This is usually what you hear from Hollywood newbies who get some gun training for a gig. The power, the damage, the killing, etc...the titillating brush with the great taboo.

I wonder how many of these people revert to anti-gun snobbery or just plain apathy after the cool-factor wears off from their paid vacation to GunSite or wherever.

Anyway, when the "elite" (such as it is) gets a buzz from rubbing up against the gun culture, it's kitchy. When they develop a serious interest, it becomes lunatic fringe.

"I just get such a sense of power. The karate and kickboxing was okay, but give me a gun and I can do serious damage."

Precisely the reason for Milla to not be any kind of progun spokesdarlin'.
We who were raised with guns know they are only tools not capable of good or evil.
These kinds of statements only fuel the anti's arguements.

Maybe Charleton can teach her this.
I hope so. I like the thought of her bein' on our side.

"I just get such a sense of power. The karate and kickboxing was okay, but give me a gun and I can do serious damage."

I think this is a reason many anti's are "anti".

People have a tendency to believe other people think the same way they do, and that all people with guns would behave the same as them, and it scares them.

Well if you think about it she has a point. All the twirling high flying kicks and punches won't do anything for one or more people seven yards or more from you intent on doing you harm. If your assailants are armed you are really screwed. Quit being so apologetic just because you enjoy firearms.

Some of the most violently anti-gun individuals I have met or seen on TV have something of a temper-control problem themselves.

About the finger on the trigger issues.... that seems to be an entirely "elite" and American thing taught to firearms enthusiasts.

I've regularly seen every other country with people's fingers right where they shouldn't be, but not touching the trigger. Maybe it's a regional thing?

Its a practical thing.

If your finger is inside the trigger guard, bad things can happen from a startle reflex or sympathetic movement of the index finger. Your finger is already curled, and if startled you can reflexively close your fist *BOOM*...or if you grasp something in a high-stress moment with your weak hand *BOOM*. If startled or under high-stress load you will not remember to take your finger outside of the trigger guard to avoid this. Furthermore, just doing it lazily when not under stress will cause you to unconsciously do it when you are under stress. You will do what you've trained yourself to do...which in this instance is an unsafe act.

Boom. Oops.

If your finger is just hanging out inside the trigger guard, its not safe. I don't care what your nationality is. ;)

You will see our military doing it is as well.

The thing is this: The military shoots people for a living. if they are pointing a weapon at you and they get "startled" and shoot you, its not a real big deal since your the enemy.

Law enforcement however is often placed in the position where they have to "hold" a person using a weapon. or point a weapon at someone who they do NOT intend to shoot. Which is odd since that is techically a safety violation as well.

I suppose I might be able to imagine this as just a method-acting thing. The finger in the trigger shows the audience that the actor is ready-willing-and-able to committ mayhem (as opposed to being untrained). :D

With all our MOUT police actions, that ain't so. Innocent civilians have to be taken into account.

From 2002, hopefully she's since rectified the situation: She doesn't have her own gun yet, but may get one soon: "A handgun, obviously -- I mean, the machine guns are a little heavy and complicated."

:D Should I call her and tell her about the DOJ may-issue for MG permits in CA? :D :D :D

Sorry, I can't see this as any more than her high of the week. The point of gun rights isn't to kick ass, to do "serious damage." It's not about fun. It is about empowering the individual for self-defense and resistance to tyranny. That means the Second Amendment starts in the mind, from a place of reason and responsibility. The firearms are just tools, the outward expression. This has everything to do with good citizenship, nothing to do with "cool" or excitement or venting one's spleen.

IMHO this is the reason you never see Sarah Brady on televised debate shows any more - the NRA wised up and started sending women to debate her. That way she couldn't play the "poor, almost-widowed woman victim of gun violence" schtick any more.

One of my favorite quotes!

I'm sorry I lied to you, Marge. But this gun had a hold on me. I felt this incredible surge of power, like God must feel when he's holding a gun. So please, get rid of it, because I know I'll just lie to you again and again!

Last I checked, war is a team sport. You are much likely to be in contact with your teammates than with the enemy at any given time. The likelyhood that a surprise discharge would wound a friendly rather than an enemy is much higher. I saw a documentary once where they were teaching special forces newbs not to sweep each others heads with the weapons as they maneuvered. I think the basic rules of gun safety are still taught in the military. At least I would hope so.

Milla might like guns, but she apparently knows nothing about them. Watch the extra content on the RE: Apocolypse DVD. She calls her MP5s "Uzis" about a dozen times.

She's hot, but not nearly as much as Valentine...that woman looks FANTASTIC in that movie.

I don't get to watch a lot of foreign language TV or movies but believe it or not we have a fair amount of TV here in TX in Spanish.

Those movies made in Mexico feature some of the worst gun handling actor paychecks have ever paid for. The biggest eye opener is when two people with guns converse with each other face to face, fingers on the triggers, guns pointed right at each other two feet apart.

Milla is indeed a very lovely, downright sexy young woman and very talented to boot. However, I think she needs more discipline and maturity before she should even think about owning a firearm, especially considering this attitude of hers:


"I love guns," she told us while signing autographs at Planet Hollywood in Times Square last week. "I just get such a sense of power. The karate and kickboxing was okay, but give me a gun and I can do serious damage."
