Seems to be a trait of liberals. "La, la, la, nothing can happen to me. Nothing will go wrong. That's what the gooberment is for, to protect us.... Gee, what's that? What do you mean I HAVE TO LOOK OUT AFTER MYSELF!?!?!?"www.sun-times.com/output/movies/cst-ftr-kurt20.html
Russell recalls that he was filming in Puerto Rico when the real Los Angeles riots took place.
"Marty Short and I were laying in bed looking at the stuff," he says. "If you're going to watch the riots, do it with Marty Short. I'm a libertarian, which to some people is akin to being a Scientologist, so Marty and I had some interesting discussions.''
He adds, "We had some nice people on that set who were politically very liberal. And gun control was always a strong issue with them. Well, then the L.A. riots come and these same people are calling me asking, 'Do you have any guns?'
"And I said, 'I'd love to help you out, but they're all being used.' Those people, suddenly, really realized what it's like to be in that ghetto every day. It's just about survival. It's just about getting through the day. Any way you can do it, you do it. And suddenly that Second Amendment made some sense during that rough moment."
On Sepember 13, 2004 "Free America" became a bit more free with the sunset of the AWB. On that same day California banned the .50BMG. The nation looks to California as a "trendsetter". Ignore what happened here at your own peril.
