Some men look at Constitutions with sanctimonious reverence, & deem them, like the ark of the covenant, too sacred to be touched. they ascribe to the men of the preceding age a wisdom more than human, and suppose what they did to be beyond amendment. I knew that age well: I belonged to it, and labored with it. it deserved well of it’s country. it was very like the present, but without the experience of the present: and 40. years of experience in government is worth a century of book-reading: and this they would say themselves, were they to rise from the dead. I am certainly not an advocate for frequent & untried changes in laws and constitutions ... but I know also that laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind ... we might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy, as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.
however, they use their fame and wealth to inflict their beliefs on the rest of us whether we want them or not.
this man is clearly not trying to have civil discourse on the matter and has turned to mocking those who support their constitutional right to own and bear arms.

While i do believe that if we can be ruled by the gun we should be able to defend with the gun, I believe in the total opposit too.
Here's some truth...

[color=B8DBFF]Some folks ride like the wind
with the whispering pines to guide them
and the burning light inside them
keeps them warm in the snow
others fear the sounds they hear
making ???? out of molehills
fill their hearts with ???? pine quills
they're dead and buried long before they go
Charlton Heston movies are no longer in demand
His immortal soul may lay forever in the sand
The angels wouldn't take him up to Heaven like he'd planned
Because they couldn't pry that gun from his cold dead hand
It takes a cold dead hand
to decide to pull the trigger
It takes a cold dead heart
and as near as I can figure
with your cold dead aim
you're trying to prove your dick is bigger
but we know your chariot may not be swinging low
You're a big big man
with a little bitty gland(??)
so you need something bigger
just to fill your cold dead hand
Imagine if the lord were here
and he knew what you've been thinking
would his sacred heart be sinking?
until the ? comes out to ?
And on the ones who sell the guns
He’d sick the vultures and coyotes
Only the devil’s true devotees
could profiteer from pain and fear
You're a big big man
With a little bitty gland(?)
So you need something bigger
with a hairpin trigger so
You don't wanna get caught
with your trousers down
when the psycho killer comes around
So you make your home like a Thunderdome
And you're always packing everywhere you roam
But the psychos win no matter what you do
Cuz they're gonna buy way more guns than you
and while you're stumblin' out of bed
They put 5 rounds in the back of your head
And you get depressed cuz the money runs out
so you put your own shotgun in your mouth
and your kid walk in and find you there
like a headless lump in your underwear
and they move the gun and it kills them too
and your wife just doesn't know what to do
and she takes a hand grenade from her shoe
and she pulls the pin......
And it's all on you and your cold dead hand.
Something else that is shared by both, Actors and 'The Average Man', is the Right To Free Speech.

Hollywood actors and their ilk have no more right to an opinion than the average man, however, they use their fame and wealth to inflict their beliefs on the rest of us whether we want them or not. Also, I can respect someone intelligent with an opinion that differs from mine, however, this man is clearly not trying to have civil discourse on the matter and has turned to mocking those who support their constitutional right to own and bear arms.
