Alyssa Milano, Alec Baldwin, Amy Schumer help launch anti-NRA campaign

BRING. IT. ON.

They obviously missed what happened when Hogg thought he could take on the NRA all by himself.

From Hollywood Reporter: Less than a month after March for Our Lives events swept through American cities to protest gun violence, a group of Hollywood stars including Alyssa Milano, Amy Schumer and Alec Baldwin have partnered with Parkland, Fla., students, activists and policy experts to launch a new initiative aimed at advocating for gun control and reducing the political influence of the National Rifle Association.

The No Rifle Association initiative (#NoRA) announced its formation and goals in a letter to NRA executive vp Wayne LaPierre on Friday. It was signed by over 130 celebrities and activists including Parkland shooting survivors David Hogg and Cameron Kasky, #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, Ashley Judd, W. Kamau Bell, Don Cheadle, Minnie Driver, Jon Favreau, Nathan Fillion, Jordan Horowitz, Jimmy Kimmel, Julianne Moore, Michael Moore, Patton Oswalt, Annabella Sciorra, Jill Soloway, Amber Tamblyn and Constance Wu.

“We’re going to shine a bright light on what you and your organization do to America. We’re going to make sure the whole world sees your bloody hands. We’re coming for your money. We’re coming for your puppets. And we’re going to win,” the strongly worded letter announces.

The letter says the #NoRA movement will “rais[e] the voices of all victims of gun violence,” citing as examples people from communities of color, which are disproportionately affected by gun violence, women who have survived domestic violence and children who have died in shootings. The letter also says that the organization intends to “counterac[t] the influence of NRA money in the political system.”

Since 1998, the NRA has spent more than $11 million in contributions to federal lawmakers and political candidates. In 2016 alone, the group spent about $54 million in the presidential and congressional races.

The formation of #NoRa follows in the footsteps of the #MeToo movement, the Time’s Up Organization and the #AskMoreofHim campaign, which have all seen starry groups of Hollywood players leveraging their platform to advocate for social change.

And gun control has proved to be a strong issue with stars and Hollywood creatives, who showed up in force during March for Our Lives events last month. Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, George Clooney and Jimmy Fallon attended the D.C. march, while Connie Britton, Laura Dern, Willow and Jaden Smith and more showed up at the L.A. edition.

  1. The American elite have access to unlimited money printed out of thin air by the Fed. These movie stars are likely rewarded monetarily and otherwise.

    Our elite are desperate for several reasons:
    1) POST-millennial white Gentiles overwhelmingly support
    Trump because they have suffered anti-white hatred and
    discrimination all their lives;
    2) China and Russia are undermining the Petrodollar. The
    Petrodollar in effect makes the whole world support
    the debt-ridden American war machine economy and allows
    the Fed to print unlimited dollars out of thin air;
    3) A majority of white Gentiles now doubt the 24/7
    Cultural Marxist “narrative” aka propaganda pushed
    by the “fake news” mainstream media.

    Complete police state gun control is essential to
    enabling the elite to suppress any rebellion easily.

    • Great comment, Gary. “Police state” is right, and it’s not just our guns they’re taking away, but our access to medical care (specifically, pain relief, under the guise of “The War on Opioids”).

      (Forgive me while I go off-topic for a moment):

      If you’re not aware of the untold (and unimaginable) harm being perpetrated upon the most vulnerable among us, check out the National Pain Report at http://nationalpainreport.com/. Be sure to read comments from chronic pain sufferers, who have been left with three options: (1) Attempt to deal with their pain using acupuncture, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), SSRIs, NSAIDs, or physical therapy (which can often make things worse); (2) turn to the black market, creating a plethora of new problems for both patient and society; or (3) commit suicide. Sadly, many are turning to Option 3, but you won’t hear about that on the news.

      In this brave new world, we can choose to end our own life (with a doctor’s help, no less!) or the life of our unborn baby (again, with a doctor), but we aren’t allowed to have our pain adequately treated…how satanic is that? This hits VERY close to home, as my sweet husband suffers from a cluster of related diagnoses (confirmed and RE-confirmed) that require medication, including opiates. Without strong pain relievers, his pain is intolerable. With them, he is able to continue to work (albeit with some accommodations) and support our family (though 98+% of his time spent not working is spent in bed). Like so many others, opiates were his LAST resort, not his first.

      If anyone is interested, there is a new group forming to attempt to halt this madness (I am not affiliated with them in any way other than as a donor): https://doctorsofcourage.org/ Perhaps you’ll see fit to help support this cause. They need all the help they can get. This is an issue that affects us all, if not immediately, then someday.

      I’m so sorry to go off-track (though, like gun control, it involves massive government overreach); this issue is so near to my heart, and I feel like it needs more/better awareness. Ultimately, this is what happens when people seek government to solve their problems instead of handling things themselves. Heaven help us.

    • Dr Eowyn . . . . You are absolutely correct! Frankly, when looking at each of these individuals, what I see is an either an aging actor/actress, or one that is becoming (Schumer) irrelevant due to her poor performances.

      I am wondering if in some small way, each of these individuals has latched onto this cause in order to keep their name in the headlines. Let’s face it, when you age out in Hollywood–you just become irrelevant, and the money stream stops. Hollywood is always looking for younger, better looking individuals to make their movies. As subsequent generations are born and grow up–they really do not want to see “aging actors/actresses” on the big screen or the little screen. They want to see beautiful, buff looking specimens of their generations . . . not the aging specimens of former generations.

      Just look at people like Liam Neeson, the Irish or Scottish actor that is here in the US and is rabidly anti-gun, although in each and every movie he makes–there is the element of “gun fire” to spice up the film. Good grief, he has outgrown the “handsome leading man role” and now each role he takes shows him, like as a father trying to find his missing daughter, or a film where there is no specific love interest. Look at the “Mission Impossible” actor, Tom Cruise, who jumped up and down on Oprah’s couch expressing his undying love. He is now well into his 50’s, and frankly he is getting “long in the tooth.” Then you have Sean Penn. Good grief, he looks like 10 miles of bad road . . . yet he appears on every talk show that will have him. There are many female actresses who have also either disappeared from view, or are now strictly marginally seen.

      Unfortunately, so many of these people never got themselves an education, or thought that the day would come when they would need to turn to some other vocation in order to have an income stream. They sort of hang on and take whatever instances they can to appear in public.

      There is no doubt that some of this political activism is done so that they can remain in the public eye . . . and perhaps there audience will still find them to be relevant in today’s world.

      If I never saw or heard of any of these three again . . . my life would be none the poorer for it!

I am perhaps stressed out as my best friend is getting married later, and the thermostat for the furnace went out last night. Thank Heavens, the repairman got here just minutes ago–the darn thing wasn’t broken. When I changed the batteries, I accidently hit the on-screen programing to “Cool,” thus we had no heat.

        I really appreciate your help. Thank you for all that you do for each and everyone of the FOTM family.

    • I have to ask-have any of them ever fired a gun,even ONCE? Instead of tilting at windmills,their best move might be to aim their “protest” at the suits who keep cranking out movies with HEAVY use of the very guns they’re protesting. FORCE Hollyweird to stop showing gun use in every frickin’ movie they make,and having THESE ‘flakes into the most supreme hypocrites by irresponsible shooting anything that moves as they make these movies THEN demanding the WE aren’t responsible enough to own guns. They SHOULD demand that use of guns no longer are part of ANY new movie being made. (This,my friends,is what I consider “putting their money where their mouths are”.) And WE can help this effort by LOUDLY refusing to give ANY attention to ANY movie that includes ANY guns. Comments on Radio programs like Rush,Joe Pags,Mike Reagan,or ANY Liberal based program.
      As WE all know,it isn’t the GUNS that are guilty here,it’s mentally unstable people who will acquire guns any way they can-borrow from friends or relatives,buy them if not from people they kinds know then via the black market or straw buyers,or just stealing them. Background checks MIGHT catch a red flag or two,but ultimately the failure of friends,family,teachers and faculty and local Cops to notice/report these red flags that are later found to have been EVERYWHERE,back then,THEY are the ones who have created this problem. When I was a kid,my Parents,my friends’ Parents,and at LEAST a few Teachers would have spotted indicators that “there’s something wrong with Timmy”,and they’d communicate that concern to the School Administration and/or the Cops. When these people,any or all,saw something that was a concern,they’d compare notes,discuss it with the Parents and see if something could be done for it. Now,though,that would no doubt be considered bullying,harassment or RAAAAAACISM. Lawsuits would ensue,and the kid would probably STILL shoot some gun free zone and its occupants full of holes.

I just had occasion to read somewhere, now I cannot remember where, but the statistics have come out that prove, that the use of a handgun has helped or saved individuals in this country 2.2 million times per year. The man who did the study also came across information that had previously been withheld by the CDC that verified by their statistics the very same fact. Isn’t it strange that Federally financed studies cannot go missing if they do not bare out the “story line that the Liberal/Progressive/Communists” want to tell the world.

      The Left hates him and has gone out of its collectivist mind trying to discredit his work. Fortunately, as loudly and consistently as they try, they can’t silence him, nor can they debunk his work.

    I think that it was on THIS web site, where the term “Judas Goat Tare” (JGT) was explained to me. A Judas Goat was a goat used in the slaughter houses to lead the sheep to the slaughterer, while having it’s OWN LIFE spared. And a Tare is a child of Satan (zowan).
    All these actors are JGT’s. They are (trying) to lead us to the slaughter.
    Unfortunately, being a JGT, such as an actor, sports star, or any other form, requires you to sell your soul.
    Which means we have a bunch of “dead-beats” trying to make us dead-beats.

    On another note, Hollywood’s demise is CONNECTED to the Egyptian gawd ISIS, where ISIS PROVES her love by killing, then ressurrecting, the victim.
    In this case, Hollywood is the victim, so ISIS will kill it so that she can prove her love by bringing it back to life (but with a new “manager”, like Russia)
    I was in the screen actors guild for 20-some years, as a stuntman. I saw the casting couch, and the WOMEN PRODUCERS WERE doing the same thing as Harvey (wall) bang-‘er, yet this demise of Hollywood ONLY focuses on the man, just like in the Egyptian dog, ISIS.
    If you ONLY think of an army when you hear the word ISIS…….then you’d better start doing your homework, cuz this ISIS-thingy is getting ready to go-live, in EVERY Christian Nation of the world.
