Alyssa Milano: “Anti-Maskers Are the Same People Who Think They Need an AR-15 for ‘Protection’”

(Photo: Facebook/Alyssa Milano)

Actress Alyssa Milano took to Twitter this week to blast black rifle owners and those who opt not to wears masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Anti-maskers are the same people who think they need an AR-15 for “protection,” tweeted Milano.  “LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK: A MASK WILL PROTECT YOU *MORE* THAN AN AR-15 Will.”

Gun-safety instructor Stephen Gutowski, who also writes for The Washington Free Beacon, was quick to respond to Milano’s nonsense.   

“Those tools are for very different kinds of threats.  I own both AR-15s and KN-95s.  I don’t see any conflict in that whatsoever,” Tweeted Gutowski.  

Amen.  The point of wearing a mask is to reduce the viral load one comes in contact with because, as studies have shown, the smaller the viral load, the less severe the illness is in an individual.  

Putting aside the recreational uses, the point of owning an AR-15 is to stop a perpetrator, or a group of perpetrators, from causing one death or great bodily harm.

Two different tools for two different jobs.  Milano presents it as an either-or scenario, which it’s not.  The optimal solution for many is to be responsible owners of both.  Meaning, it’s not enough to have them on hand, one has to also be informed as to their strengths, weaknesses, and applications in the context of a larger defensive posture against their respective threats.

For example, along with wearing a mask, I also try to stay physically active, I make sure to take immune-boosting vitamins and minerals (C, D, and Zinc) on a daily basis, and I wash my hands regularly. Collectively, this should improve my odds of beating COVID-19.

What it won’t do, however, is save me from a violent criminal. For that, clearly, I need a firearm. Ideally, I’d have an AR at the ready but since I live in the Empire State which is currently being run by anti-gun zealot Emperor Cuomo, a normally functioning AR with a standard capacity magazine isn’t a legal option for me. So I have to make other arrangements.

But, as mentioned, owning a gun isn’t enough. I need to know how to safely access it, load it, and use it, especially under duress. Practice and training are key, as is having a larger home defense plan that bolsters my chances of surviving a home invasion.

The long and the short of it is this is America. We are a free people. Free to act without permission (unless you live in NY, CA, et al). Free to make choices that we believe are in the best interest of our safety and well-being (unless you live in NY, CA, et al). For some of us, it’s wearing a mask. For some of us, it’s owning an AR. For many of us, it’s both.

Blithely criticizing the choices others make shows a contempt for the freedom our Founders and Framers worked so hard to preserve and protect. It also reveals one’s ignorance.

You know, instead of slamming folks who own modern sporting rifles, perhaps Milano should ask herself: why are they so popular? Why are there almost 20 million in circulation in the United States?

If she gave it any thought at all, the answer would be unsurprising. Because just like owning a mask, owning an AR may one day save her life. COVID, despite what her pals in the mainstream media tell her, isn’t the only threat we face.

    We’er going to take advice from this herpes encrusted has-been slut! She’s depraved!

  • Gus January 8, 2021, 5:34 pm

    Why would anyone listen to her? She should be on the View with the rest of the know it all blowhards. They provide zero social redeeming value whatsoever. Yet people who can’t think for themselves hang on their every word. Wake up folks, these people are meaningless.

  • Flogger January 4, 2021, 9:46 am

    Who is she? Must not be very important or I surely would have heard her name.

  • michael January 4, 2021, 5:27 am

    NO mask from the beginning I saw the BS from the start. Court houses, tennis courts & buildings for large social media (g–gle) are Essential ? lol Smoker of over 40 years. Yes not smart. High risk I would say. Been commuting from Pa to Md & Va (CONSTRUCTION)
    I have yet to see any of these large retailers do what is needed to fight a virus. NBC training was quite helpful to form a conclusion. And if so contagious. How is it one family member test positive & the rest of the household negative ?

  • Dale Daugherty January 2, 2021, 12:51 am

    Milano was making an “either,or, plus neither, nor” comparison.
    In other words, if someone chooses an AR like my Spikes Tactical to defend from a threat, instead of a pocket knife, but then chooses no mask or breaks social distancing guidelines, you have a fallacy of logic in maintaining the highest level of personal protection. That is all.

  • Michael W Kraeh January 1, 2021, 9:49 pm

    This coming from a court jester who took a selfie with a knitted face mask on around her family thinking that it was actually protecting her and them from anything. We wonder why this country is diapering. Its a sad sad thing.

  • Mr. Ree January 1, 2021, 8:27 pm

    Why is this person’s opinion worthy of broadcast and re-publication in the first place?

  • Mark - IN. January 1, 2021, 8:12 pm

    Aren’t there pictures of her standing next to Banana Republic Joe Biden letting him sniff her hair? Yes, there are. Enough said.

  • Dit January 1, 2021, 6:52 pm

    Why is this unemployed, talentless ho$ebag relevant anymore? Do any of you have any memory at all? Don’t you remember that when masks started out that she was photographed wearing her favorite mask, KNITTED like grammas quilt with big holes in it. Someone hold her down and tattoo LOSER on her forehead and cheeks so we are constantly reminded who is speaking.

  • Kane January 1, 2021, 5:19 pm

    Lucky for former Pittsburg Penguin Rob Brown that he did NOT marry Alyssa Milano

  • Tom Robison January 1, 2021, 4:22 pm

    Many celebrities feel the need to prove to their bleeding heart liberal friends and the liberal crowd in general that they to belong in the club. They usually never know what they’re talking about, are bigots nobody else should have guns except my bodyguards, like many of the wealthy the law of the land is bought and paid so it only applies to common folk. It won’t be until they are delivered to our enemies leaders like a gift and they violate them over and over will they realize” I was wrong.” Our enemies lust for that day and are doing everything that they can to insure it will come as soon as possible.

  • Dave January 1, 2021, 3:21 pm

    I don’t need an AR-15, but I’ll settle for one. I’d rather have a minigun to flush the scum from the gene-pool.

    If masks work, Why do we have to stay 6 feet apart?
    If 6 feet apart works, why do we have to wear masks?
    If Masks work, why not give prisoners masks and keep them in jail?
    If masks and social distancing work, why do we need a vaccine?
    If the vaccine works, why is there a “no fault” clause?
    Too many holes in the liberal story.

  • KMacK January 1, 2021, 3:18 pm

    Hmmm… I doubt it. Anti-maskers are the product of the overly-permissive school of child-raising wherein the thought “I don’t like it so I don’t have to do it” excuses all sorts of either stupid or dangerous behavior. Getting spanked for not doing what you were told to do may seem cruel, but it has all sorts of beneficial results.
    Thinking you need an AR-15 to protect your family may be the currency in some places on this planet, but for household/familial protection a pistol or shotgun is much better and just as effective unless of course, you happen to live in a place where average contact distances are over 50 meters. Otherwise, a revolver, or a shotgun or a revolver/shotgun will serve just as well if not better. There is such a thing as overkill.

    • Big Al 45 January 2, 2021, 9:46 am

      Your lack of logic defies logic.

    • Mark - IN. January 3, 2021, 1:18 pm

      Overkill? Dead is dead and bad guys can never be over dead.

  • Cea January 1, 2021, 3:18 pm

    She’d sound better and look a bit better with my nuts slapping her in the chin…

  • WyoGen1 January 1, 2021, 2:58 pm

    I understand WHY milano wants to wear a mask! If I looked as homely as she is, I would wear a mask, too! (That IS a “SHE”? Right?) But if she/it thinks that a paper mask will protect her from a virus, then I’ll bet she/it also thinks a chain-link fence will keep mosquitoes out of her yard!!

  • WyoGen1 January 1, 2021, 2:52 pm

    If this little twit was someone who mattered, I MIGHT get ticked-off by her ranting and spewing of verbal-diarrhea; but since she is absolutely NO-ONE who matters, and CLEARLY a brain-dead moron, I find myself wondering WHY I should even waste my time with anything that spews from her empty head?

  • Rocket Scientist January 1, 2021, 2:45 pm

    Another pretty face with diarrhea of the mouth…
    Does she realize that she’s actually detrimental in achieving gender equality?

  • Russ January 1, 2021, 2:13 pm

    Wrong again Alyssa you ignorant liberal buffoon. You idiots always prove your biased stupidity one dumb comment at a time.

  • Roger Bryant January 1, 2021, 1:33 pm

    “Alyssa Milano” You can keep your mask for protection. I’ll keep my AR-15 for my family and myself!

  • Leigh January 1, 2021, 12:27 pm

    And how about the people that classify suicide in with gun violence? Your body…your choice…right?
    Isn’t that what they say about abortions?
    Oh…the same people that say a fetus is a parasite…???

  • paul January 1, 2021, 12:03 pm

    Hey alyssa shouldn’t you be worrying about more important things like plastic surgery or what color to dye your dog so it will match your car and shoes (and how to tie the shoes since the person that does that isn’t allowed to break quarantine)?????

  • Stephen January 1, 2021, 11:46 am

    Another brain dead hollywood liberal. Nothing to see here. Move along folks.

  • Bubbinator January 1, 2021, 11:41 am

    Is she the lady moron on YouTube videoed using her mask to pick up and dispose of her doggie’s poop and then put it back on? Would not be surprised. Last photo seen of her she was wearing a CROCHETED MASK! 🤪

  • Zupglick January 1, 2021, 11:07 am

    What do her bodyguards carry?

  • ray January 1, 2021, 10:47 am

    We need ar 15’s to protect us from the government and the communist!

  • The man January 1, 2021, 10:32 am

    Easy to talk when you’re rich and have armed body guards around you at all times.

  • The man January 1, 2021, 10:30 am

    Shut UP DUMB cunt……

    • Jake January 1, 2021, 12:13 pm

      This sick individual brags about aborting her own children for convenience but is morally outraged that someone might take out a terrorist or murderer with an AR-15 defending life and property. Mentally ill sad case.

      • USMC0351Grunt January 3, 2021, 4:10 am

        “a normally functioning AR with a standard capacity magazine”??

        “You know, instead of slamming folks who own modern sporting rifles, ” ??

        What the? Are you trying to get a date with Milano by utilizing these liberal anti-gun catchphrases or are you trying to ward off Coumo from knowing that you own an AR in New York state?

    • DELCO January 1, 2021, 3:17 pm

      If she doesn’t like a certain type of firearm so what, why does she have to attack those of us who do? She is so irrelevant, people like her point blank suck.

  • Chuck Matson January 1, 2021, 9:51 am

    Milano…isn`t she the idiot that called the police that came with AR`s to protect her from a non threat situation? Thought so.

  • Robert January 1, 2021, 9:29 am

    If she thinks a mask will protect her more than an AR,well maybe she needs to stand in front of one while it goes bang and see how well that mask protected her,DUMB ASS.

  • Steven January 1, 2021, 9:09 am

    If masks work, then why are the number of infections going up? If masks or face coverings work, then why are people not allowed to work, why shut down the economy? Chinavirus is no worse than pnuemonia, or a severe case of the flu. Why take a “vaccine” for a virus that has a 99% rate of survivability? Wake up America, you’ve been played! What has happened in the last year is no accident, it was all by design.

  • Jeff Kyle January 1, 2021, 8:06 am

    Alyssa who? Why should I take any 💩 from a so-called actress that I’ve never heard about?

    • Alex Beraldi January 1, 2021, 9:49 am

      Remember Schwarzenneger’s little daughter in Commando? That’s she…

  • Rich Balogh January 1, 2021, 8:02 am

    I can’t for the life of me understand why anybody pays Ms. Milano any attention to begin with! She is nothing more than a Sit. com. HASBEEN.

    • ray January 1, 2021, 10:48 am

      They all screw their way to a paycheck!

  • E NICHOLS January 1, 2021, 8:00 am

    Most of the masks I see people wearing do nothing to stop this china virus. It’s like using a cyclone fence to stop mosquitos.

  • Hendrik Joseph Haan January 1, 2021, 7:59 am

    Masks aren’t working so well in CA, are they? CA has the highest per capita infection rate in the USA. Go ahead, aim for AR15s, I prefer shotguns or pistols. So do criminals.

  • Ron Stidham January 1, 2021, 7:56 am

    Apparently this dream world she lives in, has no terror group, thugs, gangs, and so on. Open eyes are better than being blind of the world around you. Good luck to her when the SHTF.

    • Jake January 1, 2021, 12:16 pm

      I remember Charlton Heston saying he was called by anti-gun Progs begging him to lend them guns during the LA riots. He refused.

  • Sasnak January 1, 2021, 7:48 am

    Pure and simple, she is a DIPSHIT!

  • Pete Faz January 1, 2021, 7:48 am

    I really don’t need to be lectured by a bimbo that make sher living getting naked in the movies.

  • Bad Penguin January 1, 2021, 7:31 am

    Alyssa is very anti AR-15. Bet she owns a 9mm pistol and has an AK.

  • Nick January 1, 2021, 7:28 am

    Masks are neither safe, nor effective against the viral load. Nice term.

  • MB January 1, 2021, 7:04 am

    “Actress” and “Alyssa Milano” should never be used in same sentence, maybe better replaced by “Certified lunatic Alyssa Milano” instead.

  • Scott Phillips January 1, 2021, 5:52 am

    Cute how she avoids the inevitable ratio by limiting the replies.

  • The Observer January 1, 2021, 5:18 am

    Why does anybody pay attention to this Hollywood tramp?

  • JSK January 1, 2021, 3:26 am

    Confused article, freedom first but wearing a mask has been proven to reduce exposure load?? So you partly agree with her from what you wrote with concerning the mask and freedom. Might want to read OSHA 1910.134 or easier watch CDC/NIOSH surgical mask vs. respirators and their protection levels concerning viruses. No they will not reduce your chance or lower the exposure level. It is a highly infectious virus. I chose not to wear a mask because they don’t work! If they worked I’d have no issue with wearing them.
