In Rules for Radicals, Saul Alinsky wrote that ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. Well, John Lott of the Crime Prevention Resource Center follows Alinsky’s rule in a great video titled Hollywood’s Bias Against Guns.
In five minutes, he rips Hollywood’s hypocrisy when it comes firearms in America. And he delivers his ridicule with great impact while providing both amusement and entertainment for viewers.
At the CPRC site, Lott supplements the video with a description of some of the Hollywood-perpetuated myths versus real-world reality.
MYTH: Guns are more likely to do harm than good.REALITY: Guns are used at least hundreds of thousands of times a year for self-defense, far more often than they do harm..MYTH: Police want citizens to avoid guns.REALITY: Police know that armed citizens deter criminals and reduce crime..MYTH: Criminals often use machine guns to outgun copsREALITY: Machine guns have been banned for decades, and there have been just two cases of machine guns being used for murder since the 1930s.
And don’t forget how these same Hollywood types just love to hire their own armed good guys for protection while demanding gun control for us little people. Because in the minds of Hollywood elites, the lives of their families are far more valuable than those of the little people who pay their salaries buying $11.75 to $15 movie tickets.
Great job, Professor Lott. Great job calling out the Hollywood hypocrites on their bigotry against guns and America’s law-abiding gun owners.
