    Ashton Kutcher is a moron because he portrays one?

    I would like to point you to the early career of one Tom Hanks.

    He went from "Bachelor Party" and "Turner and Hooch" to being the producer and main instigator of "Apollo 13" and "Saving Private Ryan"

    So give Ashton a break. There is a good chance that he isn't the guy he appears to be.

    He plays a doofus on tv and in movies. Whether he is a real-life doofus is not known to me. I might point out that Gracie Burns (of Burns & Allen fame) played a complete doofus as part of their act, but everyone who knew her (ESPECIALLY her husband) was quick to point out that she was a highly intelligent woman.

    Can you document this in any way? Or are you just making terribly (un)clever wordplay on his name? Maybe we should start referring to you as rangerrump instead of rangerruck? It would be just as clever and just as much the high road. ;)

    Wow, it always amazes me when I read anti-freedom comments on a pro-freedom forum.

    First we don't want any felons to own guns. Then we don't want any children to own guns. Now we don't want silly actors to own guns.

    I kept quiet when they came for the felons, because I wasn't one.
    I kept quiet when they came for the children, because I was no longer one.
    I kept quiet when they came for the goofy actors, because I wasn't one.
    When they came for me, there was nobody left to defend me.

    Let me make this clear: THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO SHOULD BE DEPRIVED OF FIREARMS ARE THOSE WHO ARE PRESENTLY INCARCERATED.

    If a felon is dangerous, then he should be locked up. If a child is responsible, he should have access to guns (I was responsibly using firearms unsupervised at age 11, due to the fact that I had been supervised since age 8). If a silly actor wants to possess firearms, more power to him.

    FREEDOM, it's a wonderful thing.

    It's all good in my book! A high-profile face with pro-gun talk? I say have a ball. The more younger, hipper actors & actresses that get involved with firearms, the better face we have. I think its great, maybe he could be the next Tom Selleck...

    As for his acting: anybody see "Butterfly Effect"? He can act quite well, and he's pretty clever when it comes to the MTV show he does (the name escapes me at the moment).

    Sorry, Ashton Kutcher makes me laugh sometimes.

    More to the topic at hand, he's worked with Bernie Mac, a gun owner. He's also worked with (offered Bruce a walk-on in 'that 70's show'), and is friends with Bruce willis, unabashed gun owner.

    Cut him some slack.

    Anyone else remember him on the kerry campain trail?

    Not that I care wht he does with his personal life at all but to my knowledge he's got the same right to keep & bear arms as I do. So what are you all getting uptight about?

    It bothers me more to see people [email protected] about hollywood dribble. But hey who am I to judge.

    Playing stuipd characters, and doign them well is supposedly one of the toughest acting jobs possible.

    Regardless of that, he is a very popular celebrity with a large youth following and a lot of exposure. Having him sound pro-gun and sane is a damn good thing in my book.

    count ourselves lucky, we could have had a rabid anti-gun person on Leno instead.... People aren't just looking the gift horse in the mouth here, they are filling it with lead.

    Others have already pointed out that playing the part of a dimwit doesn't necessarily mean you ARE a dimwit (see Dustin Hoffman in Rainman, for example). But I will add that Ashton actually has a reputation for being extremely intelligent. Before he dropped out to pursue a modeling career, he was majoring in Biochemical Engineering at the University of Iowa. That's a very good school, and an extremely difficult major. Dimwits need not apply.

    Didn't anyone watch "The Butterfly Effect"? He was pretty good in that, very serious, and not a moron or goofball at all.

    This is kind of a silly discussion. :neener:

    I'm with Father Knows Best on this one. I was about to say the exact same thing, but you beat me to it.

    I'd venture to say that studying Biochemical Engineering would put a person at a "mental capacity" rating much higher than most. I doubt he's got a problem figuring out how to safely use a firearm.

    Ashton, the aforementioned "moron", "idiot", and "I don't want him represesenting RKBA", majored in biochemical engineering at Iowa State.

    Wow. So a gang-banger gets arrested holding up a liquor store, serves a couple of years, then when he gets out, should be able to walk in and buy that Tec-9 LEGALLY?

    Not in my world. Don't want him to vote, either. Gave up both those rights when he went against society.

    Because, Bryan P, I saw about 1.5 to 2 yrs ago , a video of him at some rally , like a million mom march type , huge lefty type rally, going off on all the usually rants , that lefties have against righties, guns was one of them. Notice how I responded to your question, without making fun of your name?
    they only showed this video on the news ONCE, i guess his agent asked for that not to be played again.
    now let me say this, I remember at a couple of his Kerry for prez rallies, him being a pretty big jerk as well, and may have even brought up guns then, I am not sure. But if he has changed his mind about gun ownership, then i will gladly drop him a note at his page, and congrats him.

    I also am glad to see that someone with microphone availability is not slamming the right to carry or guns as "evil". My hope is that he doesn't turn out to be one of those good for me, bad for the great unwashed, types like so many of the leftist such as Fienstein, Kennedy and Clinton. I guess at this point my opinion of Kutcher, which so far has been negative has taken a couple of degrees increase. I just hope he doesn't turn around and "Punk" some of his friends with a firearm and show how truly idiotic he is.

    I saw the tonight show last night.

    It was interesting to see these two actors purchasing the same type of guns I have in my inventory. Hey, I guess I could see Demi holding a Glock, but Ashton holding an XD seems like a stretch to me. I don't see him as the .45 acp type of guy, but maybe a 9 mm XD would be more his speed.

    :)

    I like Ashton kutcher alot now...

    http://www.dailyiowan.com/media/storage/paper599/news/2004/10/27/Metro/Kutcher.Co.Woo.Students.For.Kerry-782461.shtml?norewrite200609291210&sourcedomain=www.dailyiowan.com

    A fresh group of celebrity stumpers hit the UI campus Tuesday to promote Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, with actor Ashton Kutcher regaling the crowd with tales of his middle-class family's financial troubles.

    Actor Ron Livingston, Kutcher, and musician Max Weinberg joined Kerry's stepsons, Chris and Andre Heinz, in a rally to encourage an estimated 1,500 people to vote for the Massachusetts Democrat.

    The new Hollywood crop were more vocal about the issues than previous stars who have campaigned for the candidate on campus, with Kutcher spotlighting the reasons to vote for Kerry.

    "I'm here to encourage you to vote for a guy who is going to lower your taxes and raise mine," Kutcher told the audience, which was sprinkled with trucker caps and Kerry-Edwards pins. "I am willing to give up my taxes so some parents can feed their kids and send their kids to college."

    He highlighted his middle-class experiences dealing with food stamps and government-subsidized school lunch, with each family story followed by heartfelt "aw"s from the female attendees.

    "I was the kid who was made fun of in the lunch line because his lunch ticket was a different color," Kutcher said.

    The Cedar Rapids native also evoked emotional responses when he spoke of his sister, a single mother who lost her teaching job last year because of educational cutbacks.

    "When George Bush said he was going to leave no child behind, I guess he forgot about my niece," Kutcher said.

    He attacked Bush's actions at home and abroad, accusing the president of making "false promises" and a "mess out of Iraq." The crowd followed every damning statement with a loud, "True dat!"

    "I voted for George Bush in 2000, but I got punk'd," Kutcher said. "I voted because I thought he was like me, a good ol' boy. There's one fundamental difference between us - I know how to admit when I'm wrong."

    Kutcher said his celebrity status should not sway people to vote for Kerry. They should vote for Kerry, he said, because he had a chance to sit down with the Massachusetts senator and his running mate, Sen. John Edwards, to talk about the issues important to his family.

    UI political-science Associate Professor Timothy Hagle said whether celebrity stumping attracts new votes is unclear, but it helps to have endorsers who know the issues.

    Livingston, known for his roles in "Sex and the City" and Office Space, said Hollywood endorsements "attract attention" and are "one of the ways we can help out."

    Early Tuesday, the University Democrats hosted a small forum at the Cottage Bakery with Livingston and approximately 30 students chatting about the election's major issues.

    "I think John Kerry understands that to have a solid economy, we need a strong middle class," Livingston said. "America is not served by having a few wealthy individuals and millions of poor people who serve them coffee."

    He touted the tax credits Kerry has proposed for college tuition and the candidate's stance on closing the loopholes to prevent outsourcing for cheaper labor.

    The other speakers at the evening event mostly worked to enthuse the audience to vote and bring a friend to the polls.

    Weinberg, the band leader on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and drummer for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, ended the night by playing such covers as "Johnny B. Goode" with rock band Atomic Bride.

    Again...what are you basing the "moron" label on???? I know little of the guy except that he apparently plays funny/goofy roles. But I'd think at this point if he really WAS a "moron" IN REAL LIFE, someone would have pointed that out? :banghead:

    And if he IS a moron, so what? As long as he isn't a moron handling guns, that is...

    Now....someone like OJ Simpson? :what: I might be nonplussed if HE hit the late-night circuit preaching the 2nd Amendment! ;)

    Did you see that?

    Yes, he rallied for Kerry. Yes, he voted for Bush in 2000.

    People can be complex.

    It looks like Kutcher made a complex decision.

    GEM,
    I am not a leftist, because leftists are evil you leftist. If you weren't a liberal Democrat, then you would understand.

    If you do not believe that Bush is God, then How come it is IN THE BIBLE when Moses WENT TO the Mountain to speak to God, it was BUSH, burning with righteousness, he spoke 2!!!!!1!!
