They were paid pretty well to ACT like guns were useful in certain very important situations, and they are. But when your living is made shooting guns for pretend, have the grace to STFU when the rest of us are trying to have a serious conversation about getting to keep ours for real. Or at least ACT like you are sorry about the pretend stuff — you know, the violent gun culture that promotes gun violence. The argument is that an actor should act, and that acting gives them no more moral authority to hold forth than anyone else, especially when their acting jobs can be construed to promote the violence they claim to abhor.
