Nancy Sinatra’s ‘Boots Are Made for Walkin’ All Over’ NRA, Trump

October 6th, 2017 5:28 PM

One of the strongest reactions to the killing of 59 people and the wounding of more than 500 others attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in the Las Vegas strip on Sunday by gunman Stephen Paddock came from singer-actress Nancy Sinatra, who posted several harsh posts on the Twitter website casting much of the blame on members of the National Rifle Association.

In her first missive, Sinatra -- the oldest daughter of the late singing icon Frank Sinatra and best known for her January 1966 song “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’” -- declared: “The murderous members of the NRA should face a firing squad” for their support of gun rights.

Next, the singer attacked Donald Trump by claiming the GOP president “is complicit in the murders of 59 innocent people” and responded to the Republican statement that it is too soon after the massacre to approach gun control with common sense by stating: “It’s always the right time for common sense.”

According to an article by Breitbart's Daniel Nussbaum, Sinatra “joins numerous other celebrities who have ramped up calls for increased gun control measures.”

One of those people is liberal Michael Moore, who is best known for his left-wing “documentaries” ranging from Roger and Me, which slammed General Motors Chief Executive Officer Roger Smith for the effect of his company downsizing on Flint, Michigan, to Capitalism: A Love Story, a box office flop that was intended to promote socialism in America.

In a lengthy missive posted on Facebook on Wednesday, the liberal activist promoted his “proposal to repeal the Second Amendment and replace it with a 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.”

In a totally unsurprising move, Moore called for “an end to this epidemic of gun violence” and the repeal of “the ancient and outdated 2nd Amendment (which was written before bullets and revolvers were even invented),” and allow “individuals to use guns for sport and gathering food” and guarantee “everyone the right to be free of, and protected from, gun violence.”

He also stated: ”We are not a country of gun nuts” since “77 percent of Americans do NOT own a gun!”

“We can start with the upcoming midterm election,” he concluded. “Let every candidate know if you take NRA money, we will remove you from office.”

Of course, one of the most blatant advocates for more gun control after the Las Vegas massacre is Jimmy Kimmel, host and executive producer of his late-night talk show on ABC.

As NewsBusters previously reported, Kimmel responded to the tragedy by declaring in a 10-minute monologue that Congressional Republicans “should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country.”

On the very next morning, ABC rewarded its late-night host with several fawning reports on that Tuesday’s Good Morning America.

Co-host Robin Roberts gushed over Kimmel’s “emotional plea” that “echoed the sentiments of so many.” She also praised Kimmel for “taking a big stand on gun control” and “calling out lawmakers” for shushing talk about the issue

While the New York Times praised Kimmel “for acting as a social conscience,” the host of Jimmy Kimmel Live! doubled down on his critics the following night, stating that “deep down,” they “know” they “bear responsibility” for the Las Vegas massacre.

Nussbaum also referred to actor Ashton Kutcher, who tweeted: “I've had a gun since I was 12 yrs old but enough is enough. I'm a hunter and a sportsman," but nobody needs these weapons.

“There's a middle ground here;” he stated, so “let's get to the table and find it.”

It came as no surprise that long-time gun control advocate Piers Morgan tweeted a message of his own:

The state of Nevada has some of the most permissive gun laws in the US. It is legal to carry an assault rifle, and there is no magazine capacity limit.

There are no purchase permits. … There is no waiting period mandated for firearm purchases, and private gun sales are OK.

Of course, merely being famous does not make actors and other celebrities experts on the issue of gun control. Unfortunately, many people in the “mainstream media” agree with Nancy Sinatra that “one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over” gun-rights supporters and members of the NRA.
