Hobbit actor: Guns and ammunition should be illegal in U.S.

Richard Armitage
In a recent interview with Moves, Richard Armitage (pic above), the British actor who plays Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit, first slams the Republicans for trying to repeal the colossal DISASTER of the Affordable Care Act, better and more appropriately known as Obamacare:
“Republicans are trying to destabilize Obamacare–I think that’s a real shame. I think it’s something to really fight for and I don’t know why they’re doing it, really. But then I come from England where we’ve had a national health service since the Second World War and I think it’s so important. I take it for granted.”
Armitage, being a wealthy actor and therefore one of the privileged, evidently knows nothing about the daily horror stories about his country’s national health service. See, for example, DCG’s post “Hundreds of women may have aborted perfectly healthy babies.”
I see those stories almost every day in the UK’s Daily Mail — about seriously ill people being denied treatment, then die in a matter of days — but don’t post them on FOTM because they’re about the UK.
Then Armitage exclaims, “Oh God, how’ve we got onto politics? I’m an actor, nobody cares about what my politics are.”
But then despite his faux humility, what does he do? He presses on doing EXACTLY what he just decried, to now take on gun control.
He proclaims not just guns, but ammunition, should be illegal in America, his host country:
“I come from a place whereby we’ve never had the right to own a gun. Illegal guns have always been part of the fabric of the subculture in the UK. We’ve had a knife problem with gangs.…The fact that [gun ownership] is in the [U.S.] constitution–that needs to be changed. It’s gonna be almost an impossible task unless it becomes absolutely illegal to own a weapon. Illegal. And I don’t think that’s gonna be possible, so I think it has to be illegal to own the ammunition.
Armitage, you just lost a fan.
FOREVER.
The next time some simpering leftie like Richard Armitage sounds off about how there should be gun control in the United States, just ask them these three questions:

1. If U.S. presidents and politicians are defended with guns, why can’t ordinary citizens defend ourselves also with guns?

gun2

2. If Chicago, a city with strict gun control laws that Obama says should be “the blueprint for national gun control,” then why is Chicago the murder capital of the USA, most of which are committed with a gun?

3. Why does the Obama regime train and arm jihadist “rebels” in Syria but is hellbent on taking arms from U.S. citizens?

I am going to take a stab here and say I bet he knows zilch about the 130,000 seniors that die over there from lack of care or piss poor care.
Daniel Hannan, of the Europeam Parliment came to the US several times and begged us to never okay Obamacare. His knowledge is amazing and he convinced me.
Most filthy rich do not live in or understand the real world.

Why do you demean a a stump? It maintains utility value in several ways, from fuel to chopping block, while there is palpably very little to show as demonstrable utility in the masses, at least as presently unConstituted, nor have they shown any concern for their vitiated polity. Bread and circus remains the order of the day for all-too-many!

What a shame! I love this guy’s acting. But being good at acting doesn’t qualify a person to instruct everyone about all other areas in life.
I like Indiana Jones, but I don’t care to listen to Harrison Ford’s thoughts on politics.

Are they going to ban knives there????

Didn’t we become independent of British rule with guns? Now this elitist wants us to lay down our arms and surrender to elitist rule. Maybe someone should ask him if he thinks we should become part of the British Commonwealth again.

Why is it that these imbecilic Brits always seem to know how to tell America how to live……such as Piers Morgan, Martin Bashir and now this jerk, Armitage! What the heck!? Tell ’em to get the heck out of America!

Great article Dr. E. This guy is a total, clueless moron spouting some very untrue statements, which illustrates his profound ignorance of his own country’s history and constitution, as well as his shameless hypocrisy. Oh, where to begin? I suppose I’ll start with a question. Is Richard Armitage living in America, at least for part of the Year? I ask because as he correctly states above about his countrymen having national health care since the end of WW II. This came about from the Labour government that ousted Churchill and his Tories from power in the post-war elections. Now, back… Read more »

While there is some discussion of changing it, at present, the Brits do not pay taxes on monies earned outside of the UK.

First–Joseph: “Why do you demean a stump.’ HA! Good one! Personally, I’m thinking….Why would I give a fat rat’s butt about ANY actor’s political acumen (or lack of it)? Just because I eat tuna doesn’t make me a tuna fisherman/FDA tuna inspector/ a nutitioniist….Why do actors (here OR abroad) think they are the “World’s Foremost Authorities” on anything and everything and that we are going to drop all to listen to their precious announcements on politics, healthcare, child-rearing, love and marriage, paying taxes (or not), and fashion?? This HAS to be a sickness. Please tell me there’s a diagnosis cataloged… Read more »

figures another person from England trying to change our way of life when their country is falling apart because their population can’t have weapons to protect themselves. funny how you read almost everyday people in England are trying to get their government to give their guns back.

Don’t you just love it when these idiots from across the big waters stick their noses in our business?! We separated from the British buffoons hundred of years ago just so we didn’t have to listen to them! Also, if some radical Muslim was trying to hack the head off of a young man in the streets of Montana someone with a gun would have dropped him in his tracks. The Brits just stand around and watch helpless while these horrible nuts take over their country. NOT IN AMERICA!

So Daniel (Dino), why don’t you stay on that side of the Atlantic, where the natives will soon wish they had held on to their xenophobia (and their guns.) You might want to brush up on your Hindi lessons and invest in a prayer rug BTW, and grow a shabby beard too.
