Movie star Liam Neeson is not a fan of firearms. Like many other Hollywood elites, he believes that the right of the people to keep and bear arms is fundamentally flawed.
“There’s too many [expletive] guns out there,” Neeson told Gulfnews.com back in January. “Especially in America. I think the population is like, 320 million? There’s over 300 million guns. Privately owned, in America. I think it’s a [expletive] disgrace. Every week now we’re picking up a newspaper and seeing, ‘Yet another few kids have been killed in schools.’”
Now gun-rights advocates in Los Angeles are fighting back against the action hero with fake movie posters that bring attention to Neeson’s anti-gun stance.
The poster shows Neeson holding a handgun under the headline “Gun All Right,” a spoof of his upcoming film “Run All Night,” and includes a tagline that reads, “One Hypocrite Laughing All the Way to the Bank.”
Clearly, Neeson’s characters not only glorify firearms, but they also depict good guys with guns stopping bad guys with guns. Obviously there is some embellishment, they’re movies after all, but the messaging remains consistent in that firearms are a force for good when they are in the hands of heroes.
Yet, for some reason, Neeson doesn’t believe that good guys with guns in real life are capable of stopping bad guys with guns. It appears he wants us to be unarmed and defenseless, unable to fight back against those evil individuals who seek to rob us, assault us, rape us, and kill us. Yeah, I’d say that makes him a hypocrite.
