That's his opinion and he's entitled to it....
But I'd like his argument as to why Chicago (with it's more strict gun laws) has a higher murder rate than Houston (keep in mind the population size is comparable.) When they took guns from the law abiding citizens, it gave criminals (who don't care about what the law is) the monopoly on weapons. Houston may have more overall crime, but Chicago beats them on things that probably involved guns.
Here's one source, but you can find more comparisons out there

Why anyone would pay any attention to the political ramblings of a B-list actor and occasionally funny comedian, whose best schtick is a decent imitation of Christopher Walken is beyond me in the first place.

You know I think this is one of those times where the old adage rings true. "If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns."

Take firearms away from the decent folk who keep them for protection? Why not just hand over the weapons to criminals straight-away and cut out the middleman? While I agree that guns are lethal instruments, it's not the guns that are killing people. It's the people holding them. So, I have to ask of the people that are for banning firearms.....how will you feel when the only hand holding a gun is the one that wants to end your life?

Where is the logic in leaping from two bombs going off at the Boston Marathon to guns should be taken from the citizens?

I don't see a connection and don't see how anyone could.

He's a puppet who's career peaked with jerry McGuire or maybe that was his best attempt ever at a somewhat clever joke?

The reason it is your second amendment is so that Americans have the freedom/choice/ responsibility/ that you pride yourself on to defend your liberties against those who wish to and have slowly over the years have had taken them away.

The second amendment is your salvation and once it is taken away America(ns) will no longer be free to protect itself.

Jay Mohr's comment makes me sick. Guns had nothing to do with what happened in Boston.

Outlaw guns, because someone made some bombs....

That's so stupid!!!

That's like wanting to cut down all the trees because someone got killed with a sharp stick!

Whats next? Background checks to buy pressure cookers? If that's the case, every Granny in the U.S. would be a terror suspect.

What? That's crazy you say?

To me, that's no more crazy than saying "Anyone who owns a gun might shoot and kill someone."

That's what they want people to believe and that's insane.

Like Jim Jones once said, "Shut up and drink your Kool-Aid."

Sure he can try to blame the 2nd amendment crowd and culture, but doesn't he realize that he works in an industry that makes a profit from the glorification and dramatization of violence?

This just goes to show that some people are stupid and hypocrisy knows no bounds.


Thats what i was thinking when i read his comments.


He voices "Saints row 2" videogame
www.imdb.com...

Which is about nothing else but very graphic violence and murder


He plays in "streetkings" guns guns gunz



He voices in the videogame of "Scarface: the world is yours"
www.imdb.com...

i dont see the need to link to the video , the name says it all.


now im sure that that is not all but like sheepslayer pointed out already , he is in the wrong business to be opening his big mouth like that.


He is also dumb enough to want to remove the second amendment , the one that has been put in place to insure that no government can force the american people into anything they do not stand for which would be very anti democratic, in order to make sure america stays a free country.

Yeah sure go ahead , throw THAT away because you know.....bombs...so we need to get rid of ....Guns ... what a moron.

They dont have this same gun culture in Great Britian. Do they seem weak to you? Are they a target?

I find his statements to be extremely hypocritical considering he glorifies professional sports which is full of greed, violence, poor role models, and materialistic consumerism. I guess THAT part of "culture" is just fine! Good grief...

He is a has been washed up actor who just wants his name in headlines to be relevant again.

Guns had NOTHING to do with the bombing!

If only guns were banned...that surely would have stopped this bombing...

Outlaw fire arms because of a bomb
Makes as much sense as banning forks because someone broke the fine china.


Gotta love B-listers always looking to get spot light.

I see I was not disappointed. 3 pages and 15 insults towards Mohr. He may look like a "moron" to some but what does this say for the gun people? :shk:

Memo to ATS Members:

Actors are the jocks of the arts world. Listen politely, smile, tell them how fantastic they are, wipe memory of the encounter.

Him looking like a moron? It says nothing for "gun people" (whoever those people are). It only says that, in the estimation of many here, he looks like a moron.

If the gun crowd merely has insults and emotion(which they accuse others of) I find little to listen to. Hardly a compelling argument.

Perhaps you could share Jay's "Deep insight" on cultural violence, and why he is a hypocrite? What makes this guy so smart, that we shouldn't see him as ignorant of the true reasons behind violence?

How does a gun culture breed extremist terrorism? I'm sure the suspects they are looking for are 2 - 3 assault rifles, black, dressed in tactical gear.. it was the guns that caused the explosions, not extremists and bombs.
