Rob Lowe: “The Last Thing Viewers Want Is Another Hollywood Actor Telling Them Anything About Guns” (Video)

Actor Rob Lowe was on CNN with crank Piers Morgan tonight. The subject of gun control came up.
Rob Lowe had this to say, “I’m no social anthropologist, but I do think that the last thing viewers want is another Hollywood actor telling them anything about guns pro or con.”
Can I get an Amen?

Truly, there is nothing worse than a gaggle of liberal Hollywood hypocrites.

    AMEN

  • Jack

    Hollywood actors or journalists or politicians or anybody else for that matter.

  • Patty

    And I wouldn’t be surprised if Lowe isn’t a Republican. Secretly.

  • Patty

    Amen, ditto.

  • Patty

    Now, tell that to the liberals, like Bloomberg. He thinks he is a doctor, nutritionist and knows everything about the criminal mind. He needs to shut up.

  • AUSONIUS

    Almost enough to give an ounce of consideration to this fellow…if for nothing else because he’ll be castigated at the parties for the foreseeable future for gross incorrectness of the political kind.

  • that is the last time he’ll be piers’ show.

    “I’m no social anthropologist, but I do think that the last thing viewers want is another Hollywood actor telling them anything about guns pro or con.”

    Refreshing to hear from someone in a profession that’s largely dominated by limousine liberals.

  • RedBeard

    Good for Lowe. Refreshing.

    Reminds me of what Bob Newhart said a while back. Some interviewer was trying to get him to opine on politics, and he refused. The interviewer asked why Newhart wouldn’t comment. His reply was that it would be silly for a performer to alienate a large chunk of his audience. Smart man. I still don’t know his political opinion, and that’s fine with me.

    Rob Lowe, unlike most entertainment personalities, has the strength to honestly express his views on this issue.

    Let’s face it, most people enter the field of acting in order to feed their abnormal and/or excessive craving for public attention. To these people everything in the world has to be about them (a case in point is Jodie Forster’s recent “hey look at me – I’m coming out” pathetic attention grabbing act (hey Jodie, nobody cares about your sexual orientation).

    Sadly, much the same can be said about those who enter the field of politics. However, the repercussions of such narcissistic personalities can, and does, have a far broader negative impact on normal people and their everyday lives.

    Even sadder is the fact that Hollywood, and the entertainment industry in general, continues to escalate their “love affair” with producing thoughtless movies and shows that glorify senseless gun violence. Each movie/show seems to have only two goals; i.e. make a profit by increasing the senseless gun violence over that of the last production.

    This, of course, is perfectly “OK” in the minds of most actors, actresses, producers, fans, and (in some cases) the sponsors of such productions.

  • Adam_ME

    Lowe’s a lib, but he’s always been one of the more sensible ones in Hollywood.

  • CV1

    Piers Morgan should take Rob Lowes advice and STHU!

  • NoResolution

    Rob must have a new movie coming out.

  • FMB42

    Rumor has it that the name of Rob’s new movie is “Hawaiian Vacation.”

  • noway

    clearly lowe makes the connection with the american and their pocketbooks which is more than the pack of liberal fools can do.

    How refreshing. An actor with the good sense to avoid yammering about a topic outside his expertise.

  • Damn straight! Especially when the hypocrite Liberal actor has made their fortune making violent movies with lots and lots of gun action.

  • Sandy

    Actors are low interest voters and will do anything to make a buck — so nothing they say surprises me.

    Now Bloomberg wants to cut pain killers for patients at City Hospitals. I think he believes he’s God too. His face gives me the runs.

    / Thanks, Jim. Here’s a timely morsel I encountered on the surprising web. /

    Control Hollywood, Not Guns!

    Instead of gun control, why not Hollywood control?
    Gun triggers are touched by fingers. But Hollywood, guided more by profits than OT prophets, poisons the minds that pull the triggers.
    Hollywood likes hiding behind the First Amendment more than abiding by the Ten Commandments, one of which says “Thou shalt not kill.”
    Even more insidiously, some of the most powerful Hollywood moguls quietly embrace the most unspeakably evil forms of child abuse. Google or Yahoo “The Talmud” which says that Jewish adults are allowed to have sex with children as young as three years old!
    Also Google or Yahoo “Pedophilia: The Talmud’s Dirty Secret.”
    Let’s control the big “guns” of Hollywood – and NOT guns!
