Celebs Call for Gun Control on ‘National Gun Violence Awareness Day’

by Awr hawkins  |  published on June 3, 2016

Hollywood celebrities donned orange outfits for “gun safety” and tweeted support for more gun laws on Thursday as part of the #WearOrange campaign promoted by gun control groups including Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action.

The day of action to push for more gun control laws came just one day after a former UCLA student allegedly shot and killed professor William Klug in an on-campus engineering building on Wednesday, and then turned the gun on himself. On Thursday, the LAPD identified the gunman as former doctoral student Mainak Sarka, according to ABC7.

On Thursday, celebrities including Sarah Silverman and filmmakers Spike Lee and Ron Howard donned orange outfits and took to social media to promote the gun control groups’ social media campaign.

Ron Howard tweeted photo of himself in orange with the caption: “Think, talk, write your lawmakers, vote & yes, wear orange. Effective gun safety is a must.”

    not going to happen crapheads


    These clowns can give up their own guns and security and the anti gun politicians can stop their own tax paid security and let’s see how long they last against the predators who will stalk, rob them and destroy their lives……object lessons go a long ways…..

      Yes and more an likely it will be an illegal gun. Law abiding people don’t go around shooting people for fun. There might be a small percent but look at Chicago. They have very strict gun laws and it’s the shooting gallery of the country. Where the professor got killed lots of gun laws didn’t save him. These Hollywood idiots need to stop preaching to us until they live it. It’s not two sets of standards one for poor people and one for them. If they take away our guns it’s to protect them from stalkers or so they think. If a crook wants to shoot someone it’s not hard to buy a gun on the black-market.

    I will think about gun control if all Celebs give up all their fortunes. Go back on the streets to live and no more movies. Or better yet give me all your fortunes and I will give you my gun. LOL

    Are these celebrities going to go after Katie Couric for her breaking gun laws for her video? Are they going to forego armed guards for themselves and their families? Do they honestly believe that a criminal who has already violated laws on the books are going to sit up and say: “Hey, since Spike help get this one passed, let’s obey this one”.

    • Worried Vet

      What about the cop who left his gun where the illegal could steal it and kill Kate? Should he be locked up for accessory to murder?

      • Bob

        An illegal STEALS a gun from a locked car and you want to charge Cop? This is about the most asinine comment yet. Would you charge the woman raped because of what she was wearing? If a person steals your car, kills some one during while driving drunk, should YOU be charged?

        • Worried Vet

          Nope you didn’t take the time to read. I asked should he be charged. Because that’s how stupid gun control laws have been. They don’t work.

          • Bob

            Apologies, mis-understood the comment. I agree that gun laws do NOT stop law breakers.

    Since they prefer to dress like convicts, lets provide the prison cells to go with the suits

    If you liberal idiots would stop glorifying sex and violence on TV and went back to making movies with good morals, things would be a lot better. Kids would not be so violent in repeating what they see day after day on the boob tube.

    Most of you are a bunch of hypocrites, wanting open borders but yet fence your palaces with high fences and high tech security systems.

    How about start being good role models for a change.
    I no longer go to the movies as there is nothing worth seeing. I don’t watch most movies are they are killing or f word every other word.

    I left a loaded shotgun on my porch for a month. You’re not going to believe this. IT NEVER SHOT THE FIRST PERSON.!!!

  • Richard Hennessy

    I have a solution to the increasing domestic terrorism. It’s become apparent to me that black clothes cause this violence. Thus, I propose that black clothes be banned and confiscated. While we’re solving this problem, perhaps we should also recognize that spoons and forks cause overweight people. We should ban them as well.

    If you do not like guns do not use them in movies you are in.

  • Athanasios1

    Orange is my favorite bulls eye color…daytime or night time my gun sights seem to line up so much quicker and easier on an orange target…. I hope the liberals keep up that train of thought. Is Hillary still wearing orange pantsuits? If so does that have to do with gun awareness or the murder of a million defenseless babies and the selling of their “parts”?

  • Cleverfun

    I’m calling for the end of the use of guns in violent ways in their movies… Hollywood [across the board] needs to STFU and stop glorifying violence in the egregious way that they do…

    They [as a body and/or as a whole] are “single-handedly” responsible for the increase of violent crime(s) and murder(s) in the United States because they lower the standards of human behavior & make extreme violence seem, “ok”.

    If they want to say something so outlandish about guns & the Second Amendment then I suppose that we should fight fire w/fire and use their very own abhorrent techniques to beat them at their own silly and stupid-little-game.

    Orange, the new color or cowards….

    • BILL3000

      Really,Kent2012?? Kent2012 hasan Orange Cunt??! VERY Strange.

  • Royce Monks

    So, besides the media, who really cares? seems like if you got 2 dollars in your pocket the news media thinks your opinion matters.

  • Charles

    These Hollywood liberals have NO PROBLEM making movies that are full of violence of all kinds, including guns. But they won’t the average family to be without protection. This shows how two-faced they are. I’m not going to help support them by paying to see their trashy movies.
