Posted By:JoniTx, 12/21/2012 6:40:44 PM

Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyoncé Knowles are among celebrities campaigning for gun regulation in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary. The stars feature in a new public service announcement against gun violence for Demand a Plan after 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and six adults before turning the gun on himself at the Connecticut school last Friday.The one-and-a-half minute clip features the celebrity activists asking: ´How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theatres? How many more houses of faith?´ before lawmakers tighten regulations.

Here´s a plan. Let´s prohibit the use of guns in movies and video games. Then let´s allow mental diagnosis to be made part of a person´s background that is checked before they are allowed to buy a gun.

What a collection of ugly mugs. How many of you brain dead twits have armed personal security? I´m guessing 90-100%. You disarm first. Then walk the streets of South Chicago after midnight. If you do that then we can talk.

Well, they can demand a plan and expect prompt compliance why?...because they pretend on film? Sorry, this gives them no credibility.

Freedom and the Constitution trump Hollywood ignorance every time.

As William S. Burroughs once said, “After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it.”




People don’t stop killers. People with guns do.

Who cares what these vacuous dingdongs have to say? All of them are so far removed from the realities of real life that they probably still don´t know what they were talking about, long after the PSA was recorded.

Shove off, girlies. You´re annoying enough just doing what you usually do.

Liberals can´t find much they like. They don´t like gun owners, white guys, christians, oil companies, the military, capitalists, independence, responsibility, budgets, truth, integrity, ethics, states, car owners, babies, Christmas, Easter, Pledge of Allegiance, or America. I don´t like Hollywood, their movies, videos, or music.

We don´t hear anything about the carnage at the Clackamas Mall near Portland Oregon just two days before Sandy Hook School!!

A man with a semi-automatic weapon entered the Mall and began shooting random people.

Fortunately, another man with a concealed carry permit was in the mall, after helping his companion and her child hide, he ran toward the sound of shots.

He hid behind a column, and peeked out, aiming at the gunman. He hesitated, there were innocent civilians in the line of fire, he couldn´t shoot.

But the gunman saw the aimed weapon, dropped his rifle and pulled a gun to shoot himself.

Good guys with guns stop bad guys with guns!

Each day, at least 99.9999% of legal gun owners do not shoot their weapons in a crime.

Every year, 2.5 million legal gun owners stop/prevent a crime with their legal gun, the vast majority never actually shoot that weapon at the time.

These publicity seekers have no more standing to "demand a plan" than any other citizens of the United States.

Beyonce ought to have a dialogue with her husband Jay Z about the violent hip-hop culture on which much of his and their fortune is based.

When Beyonce recently had a baby, she had a wing of a hospital cordoned off and protected against the hoi polloi by ARMED GUARDS. Paltrow hates the USA so much she chooses to live in Europe. That renders comments from those two invalid. Aniston I only know as a bimbo who makes the front pages of the supermarket tabloids bemoaning the fact that she lost her man to another bimbo. None of them has the brains to make a cogent statement about anything.

Message to Beyonce, how did your husband make his money. Didn´t he initially make his money via drugs and gun violence, then by glorifying drugs and gun violence.

To the rest of these useful village idiots, you have no ground whatsoever to stand on and preach to anybody. Your industry has greatly contributed the the deviancy in this culture. The lack of morals and perversion in this culture comes from many sources, one of them being the movie and music business.

Everytime ANY of these fools speak up, remind them of what they have done to become so wealthy and hateful at the same time. These vile creatures have been laying low since the shooting because they are desperately looking for the talking points to put them on some moral high ground. Those talking points DO NO EXIST.

They think they can be embolden by the media and their master´s latest action. To Jennifer, get married and pregnant, you are pathetic. To Beyonce, not buying your pregnancy bit. To the rest of these parasites, get on your knees and pray.

Yes. If we had just put armed guards at our schools like like we do at our movie studios this wouldnt have happened.
Liberals have declared our schools to be ´Gun free zones´. If your a mental loon hellbent on killing people where are you going to go? Places with armed guards or Gun free zones?

Liberals have sullied our culture...their vile
Life styles, drugs, immorality, violence laden films...they hold much of the responsibility ...they have irresponsibly sold that lifestyle to our children.

I think there needs to be a cap on their salaries at one million dollars...Not ever over that amount per year . ......and a special tax on them and all their films ...to support guards in movie theaters and schools as punishment for what they have wrought on our children and society...it´s for the children after all... They should certainly approve of that...let Beyonce and Gwennith and Jennifer lead on that one... They live to blather so have at it Libtards.

Why does society including liberals like these twits put a higher value on white kids than black ones. I haven´t heard an PSA´s from them about gangbanger shooting sprees. They have to have pat downs at gangbanger´s funerals now.

One of the main reasons for these school shootings is the shooters involved were bullied themselves and internalized the anger an resentment. This turns to plans to get even.

It looks to me like this Conn. kid had a very extreme case of social phobia and his mom was pushing him to inter act with other people which he rejected so much,he went off half cocked.

Way back in the mid 80´s my daughter was afraid to walk down the hallways at schools because of thug name calling and sexual harassment.I can just imagine how much worse it´s gotten the last several years.

You have teachers unions who fight tooth and nail to keep kids trapped in their ugly schools.Obama opposed the school voucher system in DC before congress reinstated it.Of course his pearly kids go to a safe private school.The ACLU is always there to say government money can´t be used to indoctrinate a kid to a religious school.What they really hate is the kid learning values.

Here are some hard facts. Jennifer Aniston employs security from Screen International Security Services. She has 24x7 armed protection, she right now has a two-man team at her residence, and ANOTHER two-man team at her new residence. She has a special team that comes with her when she travels. ALL are armed and with her day and night.

As far as "assault" weapons are concerned, the Sandy Hook a-hole used a Glock and a Sig Sauer handgun, both are 9mm. Neither is an assault weapon. These are typical guns used by police and security guards. And by Jennifer Aniston´s armed security.

Screw you Hollywood.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him.

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
