When she was a teen, Charlize Theron nearly lost her life when her drunken father attacked. Luckily her mother was armed and shot her rampaging father to death in what was ruled a justified act of self-defense. You’d think that the actress would appreciate the safety a firearm in the hands of a good guy or gal can offer, but she is very anti-gun. So much so that she does not want American school children to be protected by armed officers or trained teachers.
Fox News reports:
Actress Charlize Theron called the idea of U.S. teachers arming themselves as a gun violence solution following recent school shootings “so outrageous.”
While speaking at the Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the Oscar-winning actress stated that “adding more guns” to the situation was not the answer to reducing gun violence.
The “Gringo” star said in the forum, “I just don’t understand when people try to make the conversation, the argument that the fix is more guns. It is so outrageous to me.”
So, what is the fix? To continue the “gun-free zones” in schools that only the law-abiding respect? School shootings are rare, but when the happen the killers face no resistance because everyone on campus is disarmed by law. It’s outrageous to me that anyone thinks we should continue to leave our nation’s school children this vulnerable to attack. This is a statement someone who actually wants kids to die makes.
Theron continued on to explain that she had had “a very personal experience with gun violence.”
“I lost my father to gun violence,” said Theron.
Well no, she didn’t lose her father to gun violence. He was drunk and armed with a shotgun, threatening to kill Charlize and her mother. The only reason why Theron didn’t die is because her mother was also armed and stopped her father before he could take both of their lives. It proves Theron’s anti-gun lunacy that she considers an act of self-defense that saved her life as “gun violence.”
And lunacy is the only way to describe this. Theron’s gun control rant isn’t like the typical leftist firearms-hate in which they want to punish good people in an effort to keep guns out of the wrong hands. She literally wants to keep the guns out of the hands of the good people. She doesn’t want armed and trained teachers protecting school children and refers to her mother’s life-saving act of self-defense as essentially a gun-related murder.
Guess what? When liberals say they aren’t trying to take away our guns, what they mean is they are trying to take away our guns. When an anti-gun activist like Charlize Theron calls lawful gun use by law-abiding people “outrageous” that is because she wants private gun ownership eliminated, not because she respects the 2nd Amendment.
Plus, Theron sure does earn a lot of money making movies that glorify gun use. If guns are not the solution in real life according to her, why does she put so much money in her bank making films that show how guns are the solution?
