Apparently guns are only cool when used in make believe Hollyweird acting gigs.
From Daily Mail: They are using their fame to raise awareness of gun violence. Kristen Stewart, Chelsea Handler and January Jones all turned up at the Brady Center’s Bear Awards Gala at NeueHouse Hollywood on Wednesday to support its fight to end the tragic deaths.
Kristen, 27, was co-chair of the starry event that honored the 42-year-old comedienne for speaking out against the issue, while Chelsea’s friend January, 39, presented the award.
The Twilight star showed off her slender figure in a black crop top that gave a glimpse of her tummy paired with an elegant white, tea length skirt with a colorful flower pattern and a ruched pink netting overlay. And the beautiful blonde posed happily with January and Chelsea.
The comedienne, dressed in a shimmering gold strapless dress, was typically frank in her acceptance speech, telling the audience to get over their ‘f*****g fatigue’ about shooting deaths and take responsibility, according to People.
‘I’m not married, I don’t have kids, because I’m smart, I don’t owe anybody anything,’ she joked. ‘Finally I’m at a place in my life where I can stop bitching and moaning for myself and I can start bitching and moaning for other people. I feel really good about that, I do.’
And she added: ‘I don’t ever want to look back at this time and think, “Why the f**k was I sitting there on my bed? Why didn’t I do anything?” ‘
January, best known for her role in Mad Men, donned a red satin dress emblazoned with white stars with a black, statement necklace and matching black shoes.
Kristen explained that one of the reasons she had joined up with the Brady Center was because she wanted to ‘shatter the idea that it’s cool [for children] to play with toy guns.’
‘Little kids grow up thinking that’s going to protect and empower them,’ she added.
The Bear Awards are given in memory of Jim ‘Bear’ Brady to honor those who carry on his legacy in the fight against gun violence. He was in President Ronald Reagan’s administration and was disabled from a gunshot wound during the attempted assassination of Reagan in 1981. He devoted the rest of his life to gun control advocacy, before his death in August 2014 age 73.
