The irony of “Hollywood” deserves its own Oscar. Here we have a contingent of people who, because they sell tickets, truly believe they have something important to say to us “common-folk.”
So, let’s make an important point with Reductio Ad Absurdum and show the foolishness of “actors” who demand non-actors to change their beliefs and practices while exempting themselves from their own moral standards.

THE HOLLYWOOD ACTOR’S GUN PLEDGE
As a Hollywood actor I’m a special person with unique insight into life because I get paid a lot of money to make believe I’m other people. Therefore, GUNS are bad and should be BANNED. I stand in solidarity with students across America to tell Trump to change the law and stop the killing. We know he won’t because the NRA will not let him but this PLEDGE by all of us Hollywood Actors, Directors, Producers, and Investors will change the law, stop the killing and Make America Gun-Free Again!
I (insert real Hollywood name) Pledge to:
- Never act, produce, direct or invest in any movie that includes a gun in any way in the script, even if it’s a water pistol or one of them guns with the orange thing in the hole in the front.
- Never hire any bodyguards who carry guns, ever carried guns or thought about carrying guns.
- Hand in all guns I own to a company that can melt them into plowshares or at least a giant peace symbol.
- Calculate all the money I have made in movies, TV shows, videos, direct-to-DVD productions and give all that money to groups opposed to the NRA.
When we Hollywood Actors put our BIG money where our BIG mouths are then the world and America will know we are finally serious about solving the gun problem in America. History shows that we actors with our social activism have solved world hunger, world poverty, world water shortage, world land-mines, and some farming issues somewhere, so we together can do this and solve the world’s gun problem!
Finally, by our leadership we ask all the bad people in America to follow our example and create your own pledge, The Bad People’s Gun Pledge,
and get rid of your guns too!
Together we can #MeToo-MakeAmericaGun-FreeAgain!
