Modern Family TV stars call for “common sense” gun laws and slam the NRA

Yet they use guns for “fun” in their TV show.


From Daily Mail: The cast of Modern Family has put its support behind young protesters calling for a change to gun laws in the wake of the Parkland massacre.

In a video which some of the stars shared on Instagram on Thursday, the cast all call for an end to gun violence and slam lawmakers for ‘putting the interests of the NRA ahead of what’s best for our children’.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ariel Winter, Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet, Nolan Gould and Ty Burrell all appear in the short clip.

‘We send our condolences and support to the people of Parkland,’ said Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell Pritchett, at the beginning.  He is followed by Hyland who extends their well wishes to ‘people everywhere fighting for common sense gun laws.’

Julie Bowen, aka Claire Dunphy, follows. ‘Your bravery and resolve in response to this senseless tragedy inspires us and gives us hope,’ she said.

She is followed by her onscreen father Ed O’Neill who carries on her thought.  ‘That someday our lawmakers will stop putting the interests of the NRA,’ he said, leading to his on-screen wife, Sofia Vergara, who chimed in: ‘Ahead of what’s best for our children.’

Hyland carries on: ‘You’ve shown young people, you’ve shown everyone it is not enough to just like post and retweet.’

‘We all need to get involved.’

Ariel Winter, her onscreen sister, picks up the script there, saying: ‘And we all have to register to vote.’

Tyler Ferguson, Bowen, Vergara and Ty Burrell continue in sequence.  ‘Too many lives have been lost. Too many excuses have been made. So thank you for taking on this challenge,’ they say in order.

The cast then vowed to join students from Stoneman Douglas High School as they take to the streets of Washington DC on March 24 at the March for Our Lives protest against gun laws. 

‘We will be right there by your side as Americans take to the streets on March 24,’ O’Neill said.  Eric Stonestreet, who plays Tyler Ferguson’s on-screen husband, added: ‘Making our voices heard at the March for Our Lives.’

Tyler Ferguson ended the impassioned video with: ‘On behalf of families everywhere,’ leading to a chorus of the cast saying: ‘Never again.’

Sharing the video on Instagram, Hyland wrote: ‘A message from me and my modern family to march for our lives on March 24. Support Everytown, Moms Demand and the safety of our future.’

They asked followers to support their efforts by donating to Everytown and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

They are the latest celebrities to vow to attend the march. George and Amal Clooney say they will be there with their young twins Ella and Alexander. The couple have also donated $500,00 to the event as has Oprah, Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg.

  1. Why do Americans allow people — who make their living by LYING, pretending to be someone they’re not, who are moral cesspools, who are neither well-informed, nor well-educated, nor endowed with high IQs — lecture down to us?

    If you watch Modern Family, which I had never watched nor ever will, just STOP it.

    • Doctor E., it is because people like to live in a make believe-fantasy world, it doesn’t cost anything and they can get lost from the reality and the truth of the real world -that is their own reality! Their own world!

    • Dr Eowyn . . . Like you, I have never watched this particular program, and I certainly would not take up watching after this declaration. When I read about all the ins and outs of “their family,” I came to the conclusion that I have enough problems with the members of my family, and in my life . . .I just don’t need to fantasize over these folks lives.

      It is a terrible thing when “entertainers” feel it is their right to address what they consider to be the ills of society, when they don’t even work in an industry where there is sustainability of employment. You may have a job today, but tomorrow you may be on the outs. These folks can go talk to a mirror.

      Because these are the same people that let 16 year olds preach about the constitutionality of defending your life with a gun being soooooo unfair!!

  2. Well, I hope the NRA’s phone lines are well-staffed for the next few weeks, because there will be another tsunami of new members and renewals heading their way once people see this new ad by gun grabbers!😸

    If they could only grasp the simple ‘common sense’ of the second amendment.

    The first moments of viewing that program it was clear it was a propaganda vehicle attempting to normalize gay lifestyle and acceptance of illegal aliens as a normal condition. Common sense is an overwhelming contradiction for most all of hollywood.

    • Oh they “grasp” it alright. They don’t care. Their owners want us disarmed and they will do their owner’s bidding.

    • Kevin . . . . In my view, the real reason they cannot understand the Second Amendment, nor the majesty of the Constitution is that this document, along with the laws states, was inspired of God. There are so many of these folks who are so far from their God, that there is no shred of Godliness in them. Therefore, they are immune to being able to understand Godly things. This is what happens when we move away from our God. God has not moved, but we certainly can move away from him, if we choose.

  4. In my State, the great State of “The Hook”, our Governor, the most despised failure in the Country, a leftist, liberal communist, 3 days ago…called the NRA a Terrorist Organization. The Mayor of Hartford, another lefty leading a bankrupt city also came out against the NRA. I’m a member of the CCDL, we’re lashing back at them as I type…watch this……

  5. Shooting of innocent citizens is a right to be held only by dictatorships such as Cambodia, the Soviet Union, Communist China, North Korea, Uganda, Nazi Germany, among others.

  6. Common sense gun laws for these nuts is
    ‘You can’t have a gun but my bodyguard get to have a gun’.

    And the real terrorists? The politicians.

  7. Everything is political. Everything is “this or that”, no compromise. They are fomenting a putsch. For decades we took pains to separate the “media” from partisan politics. We used the “Fairness Doctrine”. The idea being that it wasn’t the press’s place to sell an idea or ideology.

    We no longer have a government that agrees to work together on issues. It is strictly pick your totalitarian. Many times “doing nothing” is the best course. This is certainly one of those times.

    In truth, neither party has the right to do otherwise. There is no “unless” in “shall not be infringed”.

  8. Since when does being an actor or actress entitle or endow them, with their fame, to be the moral arbiter of ANYTHING???

    And let’s say it again: Oprah Winfrey made some two billion dollars by demonizing men. She certainly was quite successful, uniquely so: She did a MASTERFUL JOB of sublimating her hatred for men by appearing to be quite “nice.” Yes, she succeeded where Goebbels failed!

    Yes, this is the same Oprah Winfrey who attended a meeting at Rockefeller University about three years ago, with George Soros, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, to discuss how to achieve depopulation of the African Continent. (As if Her Majesty the Queen of England has not done enough!)
    Again, I maintain: I believe that Oprah Winfrey is possessed by Satan. There is something very subtle that most people can’t pick up. But I pick it up. She may not be as unwound as Hillary Clinton, but that demon is there, and speaks through her.

    If one really wants gun control, I suggest becoming a member of the NRA or Gun Owners of America, where he can become acquainted with firearms and their proper ownership, maintenance and use. And get over your INFANTILE FEAR of them!

  9. I used to be an O’Neill fan back in his Married With Children days.

    Not anymore.

    As for Sofa Viagra, eye-candy or not, she’s too much of a ditz to know which end of the gun the bullet comes out of.

  10. I’d never watched this show before I had to arrive a night-before-baby-sitting for my only grandbaby. The parents, my oldest kid/wife, Orange Countians, CA, tape this show/watch it in the 20 minutes it takes for the full (non-commerical) show before bed time…..& so, I watched it with them. WHOAH! If you’ve not seen it…it includes EVERY STEROTYPIC character you’ve ever thought of….gay men who adopt a baby, an hispanic divorcee with a fat, pampered boychild (dah) from a previous marriage who remarried a white man….the cell-phone-addicted teen girl….and so on….BUT THE CATCH IS….instead of these situations being presented as a little “off” the “norm” American values to be seen in a critical/evaluative way or another, they are CHAMPIONED…and anyone ELSE is depicted as “stupid, racist…etc etc….” Pretty much the most “propagandist” show…worthy of 1930’s Europe and 1950’s USA….that I’ve ever seen of late. But, of course, our present generations only “get” their news and values from late night TV commentators, the Hollyweird spokes-persons, esp during “award shows,” and sitcoms. I am SO embarrassed to say that these, my highly-educated kids, don’t get a newspaper (no matter what the political leaning) or watch any cable news of any political persuasion, or listen to any kind of radio news…local or state or national…..and so….their ONLY national news comes from these sitcoms and late night leftist “entertainment & comedy” shows. My kids are “sound bite voters.” I fear they are in the majority these days for their generation. 😦

    • You are so right in what you write right from the battlefield. Popular culture must be brought back to earlier values. With the greatest technologies in history, we bring the worst imaginable in all products.

  11. A site which dishes dirt on H-wood types.

    Not that it’s needed, everyone knows what goes on, well SOME of what goes on, but a good link to remind others what dirtbags some “stars” are.

  12. It just seems to me that stupidity runs deep in the minds of stars. Again its not about the guns they want you to believe that but you know they want total control. So when does the civil war start because law abiding citizens will not give up their protection for their family’s and me included. So when does it start?
