    Hollywood should ask actors/ actresses, directors etc. to keep their political views to themselves. Maybe such a policy would improve Hollywood's current downward spiral.
    I know I've quit going the the movies due to idiots like Neeson, just added another to the list.

    Gun-Toting Action Hero Liam Neeson Praises Britain's Gun Ban, Supports Gun Control in U.S.

    by AWR Hawkins 12 Sep 2014 post a comment
    Gun-toting action hero Liam Neeson--star of Taken and Non-Stop--says Britain did things right by banning handguns, and he "is totally for gun control in the US."
    Speaking to The Independent, Neeson said, "The population of America is roughly 300 million, and there are 300 million guns in [America], which is terrifying." He said we see "some kid running rampant in a school... every day," and the "gun lobby" responds by pushing for teachers to be armed in order to protect kids.

    Neeson described this as "crazy."

    He said Britain deserves praise for going the other direction--instead of arming teachers, they banned handguns altogether. Said Neeson, "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 should be noted that Neeson is a little low on his estimation that there are 300 million guns in the U.S., the actual number well exceeds 310 million. But as Breitbart News reported in December, 2013, a Congressional Research Service report shows that "firearm-related murder and non-negligent homicide" have plummeted as gun ownership increased.

    The British are not citizens, they are subjects. Britain is essentially a police state.

    The US isn't much better, with the militarized police and the death of the 4th Amendment, but we still have some liberties. Neeson can go #### himself.

    He is an actor. AN ACTOR. That does not qualify him to anything else but his own opinion. We all have the right of our own opinion and the ability to speak about it. Yes, yes, I know he is British. He still has the right to freedom speech.

    Does anyone have to listen to him? NO. Does he have any real authority or power. NO. Will some people put more weight on his opinion than others, unfortunately yes.

    Otherwise, SSDD, as someone who has an opinion is given a mic.

    Funny. That means that the gun laws in Great Britain are based on knee-jerk, emotionally-based legislation, with no chance for discussion or debate. That's not a good decision, it's very, very poor leadership. It's exactly that kind of mentality that prevents the people from having a say, from having a chance to participate in the process. It also gets rid of any opportunity for calmer and cooler heads to really think through the ramifications of what they're doing. Britain is a model of violence. They've disarmed their citizens while violent crime, on a per-capita basis, exceeds that of the U.S. What little, if any, respect I had for this actor has been lost. He needs to keep his political views across the pond. Maybe he can have a little pow-wow with Piers "I hate liberty" Morgan and they can compare notes.

    It's Hollyweird movies and violent video games that twists the mental minds into thinking they will get fame and self satisfaction for their killing sprees!!!

    Actors are just fake people who consume 1/4 of the American market of cocaine, cannot even stay married for more than a few months or raise quality children!!! Just not worth going to see their hypocritical rolls being played in a venue that rapes your wallet for a tub of popcorn, candy & soda!!!

    Britain's gun laws did nothing to keep my step dad from being beat to death coming home from a dinner with one of his school chums in Plymouth England in 2003. From the look of his knuckles that onery little Scotsman gave back pretty good before the metal pipe or what ever hit him on the head.

    I could count the number of times I have been in a theatre in the past 40 years on one finger !
    Quigley and Those themed like true Grit. The rest for the most part are mostly Marxist porn, as a close descriptor....
    A couple more exceptions are We were soldiers, Braveheart and a few like that were worth watching, but we do those at home as well. Hollywood in general was well described by Senator McCarthy all too well, and it is even more true today.
    I do still like the 7 seasons of McGiver though. Were watching that tonight. :D

    People who get paid millions to repeat words written by others in an industry that is based in fantasy and make-believe probably aren't best equipped to comment on such issues. Now, I like many of his movies/characters but can't help noticing that most of them involve him killing people -- with a gun. I also find it interesting that he recently chose to become an American citizen. If it's so great in Europe, why does he live and work here? Oh yeah, the money. His political opinions (like all of Hollywood's) mean absolutely nothing to me.

    What we have here in the US is a slim chance to turn things back in the right direction. We can do it by voting some of these anti-gun creeps out of office.

    Neeson is so, full of horse...hockey. If he was true to his belief he would never star in a movie with guns in it.
