So I figure if these Organizations and Celebrities can ban togther to pass anti gun laws, we as Calguners can do the same to not support any of the Organizations or Celebrities that are for more gun laws.

Anti-gun Companies, Organizations, Media And Celebrities
(compiled by the NRA Institute for Legislative Action)
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." Many of these organizations were listed as "Campaign Partners," for having pledged to fight any efforts to repeal the Brady Act and the Clinton "assault weapons" ban. All have officially endorsed anti-gun positions.

I could respect Richard Dean Anderson's position when he was playing Macgyver, and demanded that his character never used firearms (at least not to shoot at people with) as he had strong beliefs against them as an individual.

That modicum of respect evaporated when he took on the role of Jack O'Neill in the Stargate SG-1 TV series. Guess the money was just too good to ignore and his beliefs got left in the locker when he changed into his character wardrobe.

i think RDA is only for no gun for public, but guns are ok for movies/tv. so he isn't for complete gun bans like the more crazy anti's are. kinda like there are vegetarians and vegans.

These actors themselves should be banned, as they are more responsible for gun violence than guns--they're the ones that glorify violence. Stargate SG1 is what exposed me to the P90 and eventually led to my purchase of a PS90. Now, I'm not saying I'm going to go out and do violence with the PS90, but Richard Dean Anderson (actually, Amanda Tapping, whose a-- I'd like to tap) was a very effective saleperson for FN Herstal in my case.

Personally, I'd rather our media/entertainment focus on sex more than violence, like several European nations.

That's an old list full of overpaid drug offenders and dead people among others.

Gavin de Becker is against guns but runs a large private security service for these same people and all his folks are armed.

While I appreciate the sentiment, many of the comments here exemplify the problem: the enemy is us. We complain about hypocrisy and the lure of money in them, rightly in my view, but then we steadfastly refuse to see the plain and simple fact: that we are the ones empowering them. They didn't steal their wealth--we handed it over to them and continue to do so--emboldening them. We made this problem and continue to make it worse. And only we can stop it. Stop going to films. Stop reading and talking about them. Stop renting their DVDs. Speak out against them and tell others to stop filling Hollywood war chests with their hard-earned money.

I see this kind of refusal to sacrifice or acknowledge our role in the problems in many places: it is become an American hobby to deny responsibility for things we are responsible for.

Some examples: the record industry--don't buy CDs and deny their litigation machine it's fuel but to continue buying over-priced plastic CDs and then rail about the prices and RIAA power is just plain stupid; if you don't like politicians, you don't need term limits--they come up for re-election periodically--so here's a clever solution: don't vote for them; people don't need to ban fattening foods--they need to stuff less in their pie holes and exercise more; don't blame the Arabs for our voracious appetite for oil--do something to use less.

I agree. Simply stop going to the movies. I still rent from netflix but i rarely if ever really go to the movies. i can count on one hand the movies Ive seen this year. two movies. one was Sector 9 cant remember the other. I wait till they come on video and then netfilx them.

Everyone needs entertainment but there are other ways than going and dumping money in some rich guys pocket.

I listen to NPR in the way to school in the mornings and there was a story about how hollywierd is loosing $$ for number of reasons but I have no doubt the ultra rich will have to deal with the fact that the movies suck and people are willing to download or wait for the dvd to watch.

I was hoping the bigwigs would see the light and quit making junk but it doesnt look that way to me.

Mr. Rogers' reputed armed forces service record is urban legend. He was never a member of the United States Military. He graduated college in 1951 and embarked on a nearly uninterrupted 50 year broadcasting career. And became an ordained minister in the early sixties.

Captain Kangaroo, however, was a Marine in WWII with a pretty impressive record.

I wonder how many of these celebrities would still be anti-gun if they were suddenly no longer able to use guns in their movies.

Let one of them lose a role and an opportunity to make millions due to gun control, and they would be singing another tune I'll bet.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is not all bad.
I support the ACLU of Nevada. (http://aclunv.org/category/issue/second-amendment)


In light of the United States Supreme Court's decision concerning the D.C. handgun ban (District of Columbia v. Heller) the ACLU of Nevada considers it important to clearly state its position regarding the right to bear arms. The Nevada ACLU respects the individual's right to bear arms subject to constitutionally permissible regulations. The ACLU of Nevada will defend this right as it defends other constitutional rights. This policy was formulated by our afilliate Board in light of both the U.S. Constitution and the clearly-stated individual right to bear arms as set out in the Nevada Constitution's Declaration of Rights.

Thatís the same kind of passive aggressive attitude that the people in Australia had towards the media.

If we donít stand as whole no one willÖ.

I refuse to boycott people and organizations simply because they have an opposing point of view. They are free to express their opinions as widely and as loudly as I am.

The people I blame are the politicians who break their oath of office by trying to infringe on my Second Amendment rights. To me, they are little better than Communists and Fascists.
