Pesky facts. Where's Hoggy and his raised fist?

Their reactions are epic. Look like someone wakin' up from a Kool-Aid coma.

Actors read gun control facts that don’t fit liberal agenda. Their reactions are priceless.

Austen Fletcher, a YouTuber known for his “man on the street” videos, released a new video on Friday showing actors cold reading firearm facts don’t fit the liberal agenda.

And their reactions were priceless.

What were some of the facts they read?

- According to the CDC, there were roughly 38,000 gun deaths in 2016 — two-thirds of them were suicides.”

- There are over five times more murders by knives than by rifles.”

- The U.S. has the highest gun ownership in the world, but ranks 28th in gun murders. That’s a rate of 2.97 deaths per 100,000 people.”

- Hand guns are responsible for more than 80 percent of total mass shootings.”

- Between 1993 and 2003, gun ownership increased by 56 percent, while gun violence decreased by nearly half.”

- Since 1950, nearly all public mass shootings have occurred in ‘gun free zones.'”

- There is a clear correlation between higher firearm ownership and reducing police killings.”

- Switzerland, a nation of about 8 million, is armed with an estimated 2 million guns in circulation with limited gun legislation. Switzerland’s overall gun homicide rate is practically zero.”


How did the actors react to the facts?

“I just kind of blindly chose a side on the whole issue without really thinking about facts,” one of the actors admitted after the reading.

“It’s interesting to actually take the time and see what the facts say as opposed to what I personally feel,” that actor added.

“I mean, I’m gonna be honest. For me, I don’t really, like, go to the main news sources ‘cause a lot of it’s always, like, pushed by an agenda, you know what I mean? So, to get the real facts, you always have to do more research,” another said.

“I mean, it definitely makes me want to do more research about everything that’s happening right now with gun violence,” one actress added.

“Gun control does not really mean crime control,” another actor said of what he learned.

cool...
the hardest part is getting people to sit down and really hear the facts.

funny thing here, they only did it becasue they thought they were going to get PAID.
I have to wonder if a few were just ..buttering up the producer hoping to get the gig.

--well, wow... like... I have to um... you know like... research the facts and everything... but yeah... um... so... like you've got my Num-berrr... where to reach me...like my agent too...---

Amazing how if people actually stop and think about issues instead of going on their "feeling" about issues, how they suddenly realize there is more to it than the narrative being pushed by the media to drive their ratings.

I kind of have to agree with mr wonder on this. They could be only reacting that way hoping to land the part and get a paying gig. It is literally an actor's job to pretend to be something they are not.

Also a lot of people who are actually opposed to gun ownership and or want severe restrictions on gun ownership generally don't care about facts and are some of the biggest dishonest pieces of **** out there. This is why they support a ban on semiautomatic firearms under the guise of an assault weapons ban while telling you with a straight face that no one is trying to take away your guns.

Sure there are some people who support infringements on the 2nd amendment out of ignorance.However the Nancy Pelosis, Diane Fiensteins, Chuck Schumers,Amy Schumers,Michael Moores and other actors, politicians and other people who support infringements on the 2nd amendment don't do it out of ignorance. They don't care that what they been spewing are lies. Because they are trying to use those lies to influence the ignorant or justify severely restricting or banning firearms. We all like to laugh at the politcians who don't know what a barrel shroud is or that magazines are reusable, the politician who thinks an AR15 is something the military uses when it isn't. That displayed ignorance is an act and nothing more.

You may be right about these actors, I guess I was just giving them the benefit of the doubt. However, I know that I have confronted people that were in the gun control camp with facts and logic and have seen them start to rethink their stance. While this video may not have been completely genuine, there may be some authenticity in it.

A few years back, we had a family reunion in Texas, and one of the activities was an outing to a firing range. We were, after all, in Texas.

A number of liberal anti-gun family members joined the outing (surprise #1) and a number of them were surprised at what a semi-automatic actually was - they believed that the semi would actually respond like a fully automatic - one pull on the trigger and a 'spray' of bullets would come out. (no surprise).

Several actually 'enjoyed' the outing (surprise #2) in an educational sense, as they had hands on experience and a better understanding of firearms. It may have not changed their position on the subject, but at least they knew a bit about the subject, and hopefully shared their new knowledge.

People naturally fear what they have never experienced. Knowledge is power.
