Less than a week ago, our country was rocked when we learned that a teenager senselessly murdered students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The tragedy comes after numerous shootings have occurred over the last several months and of course, the liberals across the country and those in Hollywood have wasted no time in pushing for more gun control citing that is the only way to stop potential shootings.
However, not all celebrities share that same belief system as Hollywood heavyweight Brad Pitt just announced, putting his career in jeopardy with the spiteful left.
For years, we have heard the left claim that they are the party of acceptance and tolerance, but that is hardly the truth. In fact, the left cannot stand anyone who does not share their same toxic ideology and will destroy them with no questions asked. That has been proven multiple times with plenty of Hollywood actors, but the most prominent example of their intolerance is President Donald Trump. It was not that long ago, Trump was welcomed in all circles of Hollywood royalty, but the moment he began to speak out against Barack Obama and run as a Republican candidate the left went into full attack mode.
Now, Hollywood actor Brad Pitt may face the same wrath as President Trump did after taking the stance against banning guns in the country.
In an interview not too long ago, Pitt spoke out against the removal of the Second Amendment from the constitution and punishing law-abiding gun owners in America. Pitt who was raised in Springfield, MO by a blue-collar family grew up his whole life around guns and as we can all see has not shot up any schools or churches, right?
Here is more from Brad Pitt and his stance on guns in America.
Describing America as “a country founded on guns,” Brad Pitt told the Daily Mail that “It’s in our DNA. It’s very strange but I feel better having a gun. I really do. I don’t feel safe, I don’t feel the house is completely safe if I don’t have one hidden somewhere. That’s my thinking, right or wrong.”
Pitt was raised in Springfield, Missouri by a father who ran a trucking company, and his mother, a school counselor. He explains that schools in the region were “sane environments” made “safer, not more dangerous, by the presence of guns.”
“I got my first BB gun (a type of air gun) when I was in nursery school. I got my first shotgun by first grade (aged six), I had shot a handgun by third grade (aged eight) and I grew up in a pretty sane environment.
“I was in the UK when the shootings happened and I did hear the discussion about gun control start again, and as far as I know it petered out as it always does.”
The actor and producer also predicted the anti-gun lobby will never win their fight against the Second Amendment.
The average American will never let them take away our right to defend ourselves. They are waging a war against the American psyche.
“It’s just something with us. To turn around and ask us to give up our guns… I don’t know, we’re too afraid that we’re going to give up ours and the bad guys are still going to get theirs. It’s just in our thinking. I’m telling you, we don’t know America without guns.“
There is no doubt that we have seen an increase of gun-related incidents, but it should not take a person with a genius intellect to figure out what the issue is. For decades, we have had guns in our country, and it has not been until recently that we have seen more shootings occur on a frequent basis, and the common denominator is not the weapon they choose.
The majority of these shooters are on medication or suffer from mental illness that in most cases are not being treated. The weapon that these deranged psychopaths choose is not the issue, but the left is incapable of seeing that. Instead of pushing for more gun control in America why aren’t we focusing on getting rid of gun free zones, teaching our youth to respect life, and having honest conversations about mental illness that is affecting millions of people in our country.
Disarming the millions of law-abiding gun owners in the United States will not change a thing since a criminal will find a way to carry out his nefarious deeds. While it may seem at times that many people in America do not understand that logic it is simply not true as Brad Pitt just demonstrated which gives me hope for the rest of the nation.
