Hollywood is an extension of the Democratic Party.
Almost every movie and TV show with a political message skews clearly to the left.
Now Hollywood celebrities are pushing for gun control after one harrowing tragedy.
Awful Mass Shooting
A terrible tragedy befell the Los Angeles exurb of Thousand Oaks.
A deranged gunman killed 12 people at a bar.
It didn’t take long for the Democrats to mobilize politically.
As former Obama Chief Of Staff Rahm Emanuel said, “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.”
Fresh off the heels of reclaiming the House, Democrats are pushing for more gun control.
But the Democrats know the American people don’t want it.
In 2008 when they controlled the Oval Office and both chambers of Congress, they didn’t pass any significant gun laws.
Most Americans value the Second Amendment, no matter how hard leftists push.
And 2ndAmendment defenders won’t budge for good reason.
Leftists try to peel away freedoms in baby steps if they can’t do it all at once.
Time To Act
One of the left’s most valuable means of attacking freedom is propaganda.
Hollywood is incredibly effective at this tactic.
Movies and shows condition the public to believe a certain way.
And leftist celebrities are all too eager to participate.
After the awful shooting, a spate of celebrities chimed in.
The list is too long to count.
Actor Ashton Kutcher was one of many.
He used the common sleazy gambit of imploring one of Donald Trump’s family members to do something:
. @IvankaTrump your brother in law was at that birthday party. He could have just as easily been a victim. You go to synagogues you could be a victim! Talk to your dad! Plead with your dad! Let this be your legacy! Gun Reform now!

This goes to show how the left and the right differ on politics.
The left views the president as a king who can do whatever he wants.
The people don’t want gun control.
Trump can’t wave a magic wand.
So-called comedian Chelsea Handler weighed in:
We live in a war zone, because Republicans do nothing about gun laws, while they see people being shot every day. They do nothing.

Calling America a “war zone” is ridiculous and over-the-top.
And the left is always eerily quiet on the deaths in the most violent areas of the country.
The overwhelming number of gun homicides occur in major metro inner cities.
In a nation of 325 million people, mass shootings are statistical anomalies.
For that reason, all law-abiding citizens must have their rights infringed upon.
Leftists don’t understand guns at all.
They just repeat platitudes from gun control activists.
Hollywood celebrities like Kutcher and Handler just scream for more laws.
They fail to see that California has the strictest gun control laws in the country.
Background checks, gun registration, waiting periods, magazine limits, red flag seizure laws, and more.
All of these laws are already in place.
None of them worked.
The shooter still purchased a gun legally and made illegal alterations.
During the massacre, the shooter tweeted that he was doing it out of boredom.
No matter how hard the left tries, it’s impossible to legislate away evil.
And Hollywood hates guns.
But mega-hit movies like the recent “Halloween” sequel show how Hollywood celebrates gun culture.
The left can’t get its story straight.
