“Trainwreck” star Amy Schumer once again opened her trap about gun control, this time at the Glamour Women of the Year awards on Monday night.
“I just want to use this opportunity to say what I’ve been fighting for. […] If you’ve been convicted of domestic violence or if you’re severely mentally ill, I don’t think you should be able to get a gun,” said the actress and comedian.
After iterating that line, Schumer continued, “That seems pretty simple, right? But the reaction I’ve gotten from that is I say that and people hear, ‘She wants to take our guns!’”
Well, a couple of things. First, her comments illustrate just how ill-informed she is on the issue. Federal law already prohibits mental defectives and domestic abusers from purchasing, possessing, selling, transporting, etc. firearms.
Second, the reason why people accuse Schumer of being pro-confiscation is simple. She has aligned herself with an organization that is funded by former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, a gun-control czar and outspoken proponent of bans on widely popular and commonly owned firearms.
Plus, she is related to New York Sen. Charles Schumer, a through and through anti-gunner if there ever was one. Maybe Amy doesn’t favor confiscation, but the company she keeps certainly does!
So, brief memo to Schumer:
Hey Ms. Amy,
Before you continue to open your yapper in support of gun control, take some time and really research the issue. You might just be surprised on what you find. I suppose you can start here.
