Profiles in Hollywood Gun Control Hypocrisy: Liam Neeson

Former CNN apparatchik Piers Morgan isn’t the only visitor from the British Isles to noisily oppose our constitutional right to bear arms. There is also Irish actor Liam Neeson, who barks:

“I am totally for gun control in the U.S. The population of America is roughly 300 million and there are 300 million guns in this country, which is terrifying. Every day we’re seeing some kid running rampant in a school. And do you know what the gun lobby’s response to Newtown was? The National Rifle Association’s official response was, ‘If that teacher had been armed…’ It’s crazy.

“I’ll give Britain its dues, when they had the Dunblane massacre in Scotland, within 24 hours the gun laws were changed so you could not have a handgun… It is the right to bear arms which is the problem. I think if the Founding Fathers knew what was happening they would be turning in their graves with embarrassment at how that law has been interpreted.”

Incredible. A foreigner who makes pretend for a living has managed to divine the intent of the Founding Fathers where constitutional scholars have failed, recognizing that they didn’t really mean all that stuff about “the people’s liberty’s teeth” or the Second Amendment either, and actually wanted us helplessly at the mercy of criminals and the State.

Speaking of what Neeson does for a living, here are a few shots of him earning his fortune:






There are plenty more where these came from.

Neeson may turn out to be one of the very people we need guns to defend ourselves against. Indulging fully in the malign flakiness that characterizes the entertainment industry, he has considered converting to Islam:

The Irish actor admitted to the U.K.’s Sun newspaper that he is considering giving up his Catholic beliefs in order to become a Muslim.

Neeson, 59, went on to explain that Islamic prayer “got into his spirit” when he spent time in the Turkish city working on the action-thriller “Taken 2.”

“The call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week, it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing,” he told the newspaper.

Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

“[The Islamic call to prayer is] one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”
—Barack Hussein Obama

Becoming a radical Muslim would oblige Neeson to travel to Syria to fight for the Islamic State, as thousands of “European” Muslims have been doing. If that would interfere with his acting schedule, he might chose instead to shoot a few innocent Americans on behalf of Allah, like Ali Muhammad Brown.
