1. Sadly, the pleas of all the bleeding hearts in all the towns, hamlets, and cities across the land

would likely be sufficient to influence even one true-believing gun worshiper in the Congress to vote for sensible gun legislation designed to stop the rampant slaughter and carnage which have become part of our culture and heritage.

3. That's a beautiful message. They need to put more of their money behind it,

because THAT is what the NRA does.

Which is incredibly sad for this country.

If they all stepped up like Bloomberg then we could get some things done.

9. Yes

Much like the brain addled infomercial entertainers and whining minority that make up the gunnutery crowd. Only these are better, and you must listen to them. But only you, because you asked. If you need help with any other decision in your life let me know, I will guide you so you don't feel lost.

10. We should stick with your plan and listen to Ted Nugent

He's not a celebrity.

Enjoy your stay.

28. Exactly

 

So why have these celebrities do this ad and not just some regular people? If "only Faux news people think like that" then I guess it doesn't matter who delivers the message, so why celebrities?

have no problem with it when it is Ted Nugent or Arnold Schwarzenegger doing the talking

7. This coming from an industry that glorifies nihilism, narcissistic behavior, self-interest

 

drugs, sexism, shallow attitudes about beauty and violence in most of its productions.

When these same people vow and stop making, producing and starring in splatterfests, gorefests and when the musicians stop making use of the word "bitch," the "n-bomb" and glorifying their own avarice, vice and worship of the all-mighty dollar, I will believe the things they say.

Until then, their message is nice. . .but hollow.

17. Breaking into the industry as we speak. Agent is finally working. Met alot of people from the

 

industry through him.

Everything I said is reality. . .not a talking point. When I told by a record producer "there is no underage in the business," i stand by my previous statement.

24. I still never understand why a group of people who have been successful at something...

in this case the entertainment industry. Then because they have been successful they are excluded from even speaking on the issues of their day. That don't really even effect their careers. Maybe these people are just tired of watching young kids get massacred or I could be wrong.
