After the movie theater shooting in Lafayette Thursday, liberals of all stripes came out in droves to push for stronger anti-gun measures, as they typically do. Despite the location being a “gun-free zone,” Democrat politicians, media personalities and actors insisted that more gun laws would prevent these type of tragic incidents.
Democrat Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders advocated for banning “certain types of guns exclusively used to kill people, while President Obama audaciously said that guns kill more people than terrorism.
Here are some more equally stupid statements made by famous liberals on why banning guns would eliminate violence.
Ex-CNN host Piers Morgan apparently thinks guns are the only way to kill people:
A ‘math’ test for you, America: If NOBODY had a gun, how many people would be shot dead? If EVERYBODY had a gun, same question. See?— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 27, 2015
Another mass shooting in America. Another chance for America to do absolutely nothing to stop more mass shootings. http://t.co/3GqB6PUJxz— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 24, 2015
"Girls" star and creator Lena Dunham blamed “senseless violence” on a lack of gun control:
Let's never become numb to this ceaseless gun violence. It cannot be our norm. Love to all in Louisiana.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) July 24, 2015
If you say 'Unfollow' after I post about Sandra Bland or gun control, I didn't want you here in the first place— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) July 24, 2015
Pop star Katy Perry tweeted out that society was not “taking [gun control] seriously.”
Do we all personally hv to lose someone from a gun to hv a real opinion on gun control or can we just literally start taking this SERIOUSLY.— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) July 24, 2015
Author Stephen King called the “plague of guns in our own country” “insane”:
Americans can find an earthlike planet 1400 lightyears away, but can do nothing about the plague of guns in our own country? That's insane.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) July 25, 2015
Comedian and radio host John Fugelsang blamed the shooting on a political conspiracy between the NRA and Congress:
Guns don't kill people but NRA ppl who own Congress ppl make it easier for crazy ppl to get guns & kill innocent ppl.— John Fugelsang (@JohnFugelsang) July 25, 2015
Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson said that the U.S. needed to adopt gun laws similar to Australia’s to prevent mass shootings:
I don't like getting political but America you really have to follow Australia's example re gun laws.— Rebel Wilson (@RebelWilson) July 24, 2015
"White Collar" actor Willie Garson complained:
Ok? Can we stop blaming our "content" and focus on mental health and gun availability? Prayers to Lafayette....#heartbreaking— Willie Garson (@WillieGarson) July 24, 2015
Jenna Fischer from "The Office" tweeted:
Please. No more guns. Please. Churchgoers, school children, moviegoers...how many more innocent people have to die before we change?— Jenna Fischer (@jennafischer) July 24, 2015
Co-creator of ABC’s Modern Family tweeted that we needed #GunControlNow:
Theater shooter reportedly bought the gun legally despite history of mental illness. NRA wins, we lose. #GunControlNow— Steve Levitan (@SteveLevitan) July 25, 2015
Actor Jeffrey Wright took the opportunity to attack Bobby Jindal:
Bobby Jindal on the scene in #Lafayette attempting "Presidential," proclaiming "evil" & calling for prayer...but never tougher gun laws.— Jeffrey Wright (@jfreewright) July 24, 2015
The media’s bias on gun control is obvious. Liberal politicians and entertainment media have said all kinds of absurd things about guns and gotten away with it. Meanwhile, one common sense statement from Rick Perry, advocating for guns in responsible hands, made headline news Monday.
