After the recent school shooting in Parkland, FL the mainstream media and Hollywood elites have been screaming at the top of their lungs for gun control, and somehow blaming the NRA for the shooting (even though the gunman wasn’t an NRA member.) It’s been a non-stop frenzy both on TV as well as on social media.
And then… out of the blue… a calm, rational, and very reasonable voice emerges… from Brad Pitt! (Wait a minute, he’s from Hollywood! It’s being rational against the law in Hollywood?) In a recent article in yournewswire.com, Brad Pitt comes out and says what everyone with common sense in America is thinking – Banning guns will make schools MORE dangerous. According to the article,
Describing America as “a country founded on guns,” Brad Pitt told the Daily Mail that “It’s in our DNA. It’s very strange but I feel better having a gun. I really do. I don’t feel safe, I don’t feel the house is completely safe, if I don’t have one hidden somewhere. That’s my thinking, right or wrong.”
Pitt was raised in Springfield, Missouri by a father who ran a trucking company, and his mother, a school counsellor. He explains that schools in the region were “sane environments” made “safer, not more dangerous, by the presence of guns.”
“I got my first BB gun (a type of air gun) when I was in nursery school. I got my first shotgun by first grade (aged six), I had shot a handgun by third grade (aged eight) and I grew up in a pretty sane environment.
“I was in the UK when the shootings happened and I did hear the discussion about gun control start again, and as far as I know it petered out as it always does.”
The actor and producer also predicted the anti-gun lobby will never win their fight against the Second Amendment.
The average American will never let them take away our right to defend ourselves. They are waging a war against the American psyche.
“It’s just something with us. To turn around and ask us to give up our guns… I don’t know, we’re too afraid that we’re going to give up ours and the bad guys are still going to get theirs. It’s just in our thinking. I’m telling you, we don’t know America without guns.“
PHEW!! Common sense from Hollywood!! While it’s extremely rare, there ARE a few rational people in Hollywood!! (Thank the Lord for that!)
As it turns out, once you get to be too big of a name to throw to the wolves without anyone noticing, some emerge to voice their Republican views. There’s even a secret society of Republicans in Hollywood, known as the “Friends of Abe.” And here’s a fun fact: One of the most prominent members of the Friends of Abe, is Jon Voight – who is Angelina Jolie’s Dad! (For those of you who have been living under a rock, Angelina Jolie is another Hollywood heavy hitter, who was married to Brad Pitt for ~10 years.)
While they are no longer married, it should be noted that Angelina Jolie also shared Brad’s love of firearms, and the love of practice shooting. Forbes did an article about it about 2 years ago in which they highlighted special guns they had made by the reality star Jesse James’ company, Jesse James Firearms Unlimited. In the article, Jesse James states,
“I built this custom pair of Cisco 1911’s for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Both are Government size. Her’s is chambered in 9mm and his in .45acp . Both are hand fit from all oversize parts, making them incredibly accurate, well shooting pistols.”
I don’t know about you, but I just liked Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie even more than I already did! 🙂 From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU Big Papa, for bringing a rational voice to the media frenzy on gun control!
