After a week of being rightly ridiculed and disparaged over her brazen hypocrisy as it pertains to presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, “super-sciency” Hollywood genius Alyssa Milano has opted to double down.
But not by rehashing her bogus reasons for why Biden deserves the due process that she’d eagerly denied to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Americans bought over 2 million firearms in March of 2020, over a million more than this time last year. We have to keep each other safe by social distancing and washing our hands and not bringing dangerous firearms into our homes. #StopTheCoronavirusGunSurge #NoRA pic.twitter.com/O5J98QXTFO

“Hi everybody. So I’m making this video because I’m seeing reports all over the country of Americans responding to the coronavirus outbreak by buying up guns and ammunition,” she says in the video above.
“And I know that we are all scared and stressed out during these really uncertain times, but that is exactly why stockpiling weapons could have dire consequences for our own personal safety and those around us.”
False. Not stockpiling guns — and thus leaving one’s family unprotected from the dangerous criminals being released en masse by Democrat legislators — is what “could have dire consequences” for the American people’s safety.
“You know, the weapons that people are buying today could end up being used in households, schools, churches, bars and on our streets in the future,” Milano continues.
But isn’t that the point? As the timeless saying goes, “An armed society is a polite society.” Or put differently, “More Guns, Less Crime.”
“So we all have to look out for each other. So please, please, please share this video to help stop the coronavirus gun surge. We can’t lose any more lives to guns during this pandemic or after it’s over,” the actress’s anti-gun diatribe concludes.
Within minutes of the tweet video being posted, criticism began pouring in from all corners of the Web, including the one inhabited by outspoken conservative Hollywood actor James Woods.
Thank you for the reminder. When the looting starts, always be prepared. Buy more ammo! https://t.co/ZJQBTzhLNz

I certainly feel better knowing I can protect myself and my family—especially now as criminals are being given early prison releases amid pandemic panic in unprecedented numbers.
Wash your hands, clean your guns, and love your neighbors. 💖

The NRA gains thousands of members every single time one of you self-absorbed, self-righteous, smug celebrities do dumb videos like this. Keep it going! You are the reason the NRA barely has to spend money marketing.

I was one of those 2 million Americans who purchased a gun in March.
Aside from society on the brink of collapse due to this crisis, I’m a trans woman who’s been doxxed and routinely gets credible death threats.
Fuck you for trying to tell me it’s wrong to protect myself. 🖕

Second Amendment abolitionists seize upon every opportunity to erode your Constitutionally protected freedoms. Yes, they are coming to take your guns. Yes, door-to-door confiscation is the ultimate goal. And yes, they will never stop.

And yes, it’s true that Milano admitted to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz last year that she keeps two guns in her household for self-defense.
Yet during a time of crisis when grocery stories are being emptied out, the economy is crashing and some Americans are being driven to madness, the Hollywood starlet is adamant that the American people should abstain from buying guns for themselves.
It seems like there’s no logic to her statements — that she’s basing every word that comes out of her mouth solely on her irrational emotions.
Granted, her irrational emotions are shared by a large chunk of the left-wing mainstream media:
CNN: there’s no reason at all to buy a self-defense weapon during a pandemic that is eroding the world’s supply chains, transport, employment, income, health care, law enforcement, social trust, elections, & faith in governments. https://t.co/7t6L25hU2J

Coronavirus is causing people to panic buy guns and ammo. Not only will a gun not help you, however, it will make staying at home that much more dangerous for you and your family. https://t.co/O6jf7J8qvn

“My fear is that in a race to protect themselves from this pandemic, some people might be bringing a different danger right through their front door.”

Of course, those who actually know what it feels like to live through a cataclysmic national crisis feel otherwise.
“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan English teacher now exiled in Ecuador, told Fox News in a 2018 interview.
“The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population.”
Ironically, the same breed of left-wingers who’ve taken to bemoaning a surge in gun sales have in recent days taken to again accusing the president of being a dictator.
But if that’s true, then why wouldn’t they want to arm themselves? Again, it all makes no sense, likely because it’s all rooted in irrational emotions, not logic.
