New Celebrity Boycott Campaign Against the NRA in Effect [VIDEO]

In yet another bid to end the dominance of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in home personal security measures with the ownership of handguns and rifles, celebrities have banded together to denounce the NRA and to demand that people think twice about their membership in the organization.  The loose boycott of sorts points out the rising tide of Progressives who are in favor of not only outlawing the personal ownership of weapons, but banning them from existence altogether.

Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, and Sheryl Crow are among a number of celebrities urging Americans to “reject the NRA” and concealed carry of firearms in the wake of the shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert this month.

Laura Dern, Bill Hader, and Adam Scott are also taking part in the anti-gun campaign, as is noted gun control advocate Julianne Moore. The celebrities are part of the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety PSA against the NRA specifically, and against gun rights generally.

In typical Everytown fashion, the PSA does not present real solutions to the attack in Vegas–after all, the attacker complied with all gun controls, including background checks, so no new law would have stopped him. Even gun control advocate Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) admitted as much on the October 8 airing of Face the Nation. Therefore, in lieu of a substantive position, the celebrities are urging Americans to call Congress and oppose things that had nothing to do with the Las Vegas attack.

“The mass shooting in Las Vegas has all of us grieving, scared and angry,” Stone opens the video. From here, various other celebrities appear, telling people to text “REJECT” to Everytown. They inform viewers that the gun control group will call those who text, give them contact numbers for lawmakers, and “give [them] guidelines” on what to say when they talk to their lawmakers.

This latest effort will focus especially on aspects of national reciprocity for concealed carry (which currently is being litigated and discussed) that allows a person with a license from their home state to carry their weapon in 49 other states as well.

The Sportsman's Heritage And Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act is also targeted by the celebrities who urge Congress to oppose it.  The SHARE Act aims to remove federal taxes on suppressors (what Progressives refer to as “silencers”) which are used by sportsmen and enthusiasts for hearing protection.  As is pointed out, the suppressors had nothing to do with the Las Vegas attack.
