A gun control narrative can be added to the growing list of causes smothering the ratings-challenged Academy Awards show Sunday night.
So much so, in fact, that some celebrities will be rocking an orange anti-gun violence pin.
The pin depicts an orange American flag from Everytown for Gun Safety group and will be worn in the same spirit as the #MeToo campaign to draw attention to sexual abuse.
The gun control group is strongly backed by liberal billionaire Michael Bloomberg.
A-list celebrities will wear them “to shine a light on gun violence prevention,” People Magazine reported — of course, the “prevention” being the liberal prescription of gun control.
The focus coming in the aftermath of last month’s tragic shooting at a Florida high school that claimed the lives of 17 people, to include 15 students.
Of course, the award show is almost certain to have armed security and many of the A-list celebrities, if not all, will likely have armed security details — a fact not lost on Daily Caller contributing editor Derek Hunter:
Is the armed security required to wear them? https://t.co/r6cssn5UTu

The anti-gun violence pins will be competing with the #AskMoreOfHim campaign, which is an effort by leading men in Hollywood to show solidarity with the #MeToo movement.
Led by actors David Arquette, David Schwimmer, and Matt McGorry, the effort calls on all men to “make it clear to other men — including their friends, colleagues and co-workers — that sexual harassment and abuse are never acceptable,” according to a letter from the group.
