Rob Lowe: The Last Thing Anyone Wants Is Another Hollywood Actor Telling Them About Guns
Bert Atkinson Jr. | On 16, Jan 2013
Bless this man. Hearing a celebrity admit that he or she is no expert that people should necessarily listen to is so comforting its unbelievable.
PIERS MORGAN, HOST: As a gun owner, you would have no problem if President Obama said, “I really want to push for these assault rifles in particular to be taken out of circulation.”
ROB LOWE: Look, I wouldn’t because, I mean, I, look, I like guns, and I don’t want to own an assault rifle. I wouldn’t know what to do with one, I wouldn’t know why I’d want one. I also see that if you’re a law-abiding person, and you bought it under the law, having it taken from you, I could see why people would have a problem with that. But if they don’t do that, as you point out, it’s not really a ban, is it?
LOWE: And I’m no social anthropologist, but I do think that the last thing viewers want is another Hollywood actor telling them anything about guns pro or con.
Rob Lowe, we salute you and your rational thinking. The ability to realize that you are a paid entertainer and not a “social anthropologist” is something many others clearly do not have in Hollywood, where it is borderline unthinkable to do anything but blindly praise President Obama, Democrats, gun control, and anything else that happens to fall on the left side of the political spectrum.
