Many celebrities who came out Sunday night for the festivities of the Golden Globes are fervently on the gun control bandwagon.
Yet the Golden Globes event was virtually bristling with security of all types, including private security with guns and Beverly Hills police with guns and body armor.
There were even dogs, SWAT and special FBI teams, according to Breitbart:
This means actresses like Jessica Chastain, star of gun control’s box office flop Miss Sloane, was able to rail against gun rights onscreen, but enjoyed the benefits and safety that guns provide during the Golden Globes awards ceremony. Chastain was nominated for a Golden Globe even though Miss Sloane tanked at the box office, as Breitbart News reported.
Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds was nominated for a Golden Globe also. The New York Daily News reported that just days after the June 12, 2016, Orlando Pulse nightclub attack, Reynolds was busy tweeting instructions to his followers, explaining how they could contact Congress to demand more gun control for law-abiding citizens.
Matt Damon was at the awards also, the very Matt Damon who makes millions using guns in the Bourne film series, yet calls for an Australia-like gun ban for the rest of America.
It’s just a bit hypocritical to attack the right to bear arms when you are so privileged to be protected by it, in such force.
For the rest of America, most of us don’t have the benefit of private security guards.
We don’t have red carpet police protection.
Or SWAT or FBI teams at the ready.
All we have are the rights that the Second Amendment guarantees for us.
That right should not be abridged.
