Well, it took long enough, but some Hollywood celebrities are finally coming forward and embracing the Second Amendment. Apparently they got an injection of common sense and realized that self-preservation was in their best interests. Good for them.
Now that they have jumped aboard the gunpowder train, maybe they will stop lecturing the rest of us on the eeeeevils of carrying a firearm. If it’s good for you idiots, it is certainly good for those of us who do not employ an army of bodyguards.
Seeking an added layer of protection, more high-profile celebrities are seeking permits to carry guns in New York City, according to New York’s Daily News.
Among the big names licensed to pack heat: Marc Anthony, Robert De Niro, Donald Trump, and his son, Donald Jr., Mets third baseman David Wright, and Martha Stewart’s daughter, radio host Alexis Stewart.
One reason for the rise in interest seems to be the vulnerability some celebrities feel in the Internet age, where so much personal information can be accessed online. “They can get their own security, but with the Internet, it is much easier to find people,” attorney John Skylar Chambers tells the News. “They don’t want to find someone on their lawn at five in the morning.”
So you should shut the Hell up when we want to carry. Got it, libtards?
