National Organizations With Anti-Gun Policies The following organizations have lent monetary, grassroots or some other type of direct support to anti-gun organizations. In many instances, these organizations lent their name in support of specific campaigns to pass anti-gun legislation such as the March 1995 HCI "Campaign to Protect Sane Gun Laws."

It's amazing how many of these anti-gun actors, et al, have no qualms about accepting roles in movies that portray gun violence beyond the bounds of reason and propriety. I guess that's what you might term "moral flexibility".

He wasn't when the list was compiled in 2000, as you can see at the end of that list. Anybody care to update the list, be my guest- and feel free to add anyone else not listed. It seems almost a prerequisite to be anti-gun to make it in the media, doesn't it?

I saw that State Farm insurance was left off the list, they're anti. Also Jay Leno is anti. Kinda surprising on Bruce Springsteen as he sings about shooting his tv set with a 44mag in the song "57 channels & nothing on". Of course we all know Hanoi Jane has a carry permit. As the other's say, it might've been easier to list the pro's.

Hollywood morons always have had their own special brand of hypocritical morality. "Oh, guns are evil(except when use to make me a pile of money)" Personally, I haven't gone to see a movie in quite some time. This list is good. If I know a company, business or individual is anti-gun, I won't give them a dime.

No offence. I was just adding a celebratory FYI. My concience just flagged me that I probably shouldn't be celebrating a persons death. But then I got into an auguement with my concience about Osama, Hitler, Rosie Bin O'Donnell and other notorious scumbags, and I ended up winning!!! [<]:)][<]:)][<]:)][<]:)][<]:)]

It would be interesting to see how anti these people really are. It is my estimation that most hollywood figures are flakes, they probably just latched onto a fashionable cause. Free Tibet dude! Someone commented on the moral flexibility of these people who produce gun filled movies. I definitely agree. The most verbal people are usually the biggest hypocrites. Look are Rosie and her gun toting body guards...

What's the deal with the American Firearms Association? Unless they are some smokescreen that the bleedinghearts made up, I would think that they would be pro-gun. I'm sure more than half of these self righteous pricks own guns or have bodyguards who carry guns to protect them. It's ok for them to trash the 2nd amendment because anybody who would want to own and shoot a gun is a psychopathic killer, but when anybody merely mentions putting stricter controls on what goes on TV when, they scream about how their first amendment rights are being violated. After all, pumping kids full of tv shows and movies glorifying sex, violence, drug use, and any other moral depravity has no influence on them. These pricks think that they are performing a great public service by making movies for us. They have god knows how many awards shows (Grammys, Golden Globes, Emmys, People's Choice, MTV, etc., etc.) every year to pat each other on the back as if they have done some great service for the community and country. Most of them have utter disdain for the real heroes who actually deserve to be recognized like the military, police, firefighters, etc who bust their ass, suffer, and sacrifice every day doing their jobs. Sorry, I got off a little off track. My girlfriend just made me watch some of the bullsh*t that is the Golden Globe Awards, so I am still a little ripped over that.

Probably most Hollywood types who jump on the anti-gun bandwagon don't see/care about the consequences, as the "crusade" of "getting rid of guns" gives them a feeling of self-worth that helps to expunge the general feeling of sliminess show biz one needs and engenders in order to succeed in the biz. Of course, if one's bosses (Geffen, Weinstein, Katzenberg, Spielberg, et al) are all stone liberals, it's also a form of sucking up to the boss....[rolleyes] ......................... [The TV show "West Wing" strives to] present a very balanced view of an issue, to present both sides. The only issue we don't do that on is gun control. - --ANONYMOUS EXECUTIVE PRODUCER, "WEST WING" (IN COMMENTARY MAGAZINE 12/2000) "The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs...There's also a negative side." -- Hunter S. Thompson
