I heard that Sean Connery campaigned to get all guns banned in Scotland years ago.


March 17, 1997 Sean Connery Speaks Out for Handgun Ban: Sean Connery has lent his voice to anti-gun campaigners in Scotland, who launched a national cinema commercial on Monday calling for the incoming government to place a total ban on handguns. The commercial is part of a push by the Snowdrop Campaign--formed by parents of the sixteen schoolchildren gunned down last year in the Scottish town of Dunblane--before the country's general elections on May 1. The forty-second spot opens with a man loading a .22-caliber handgun. Connery, the original James Bond, says in a voice-over: "It is said a total ban on handguns, including .22s, would take away innocent pleasure from thousands of people." The man in the film then fires several shots at a human-shaped cardboard target. As the camera moves in for a close-up of the gun, Connery says, "Is that more or less pleasure than watching your child grow up?" The film ends with the words: "Remember Dunblane. Ban all handguns." Three weeks ago, legislation was introduced in response to the Dunblane killings that bans private ownership and possession of all pistols and revolvers except the .22. --Spades of Columbia 18:25, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Fuck him

Why?! Why must one of the greatest actors of all times be a liberal?! Damn You Hollywood and your liberal-communist ways! So he thinks it's okay to beat a woman, but thinks guns are bad? - Kilgore 19:31, 7 August 2010 (UTC)


"Liberal-Communist ways?" Wow, offensive to both liberals and communists at once, that's pretty special there champ. I guess it would be bad form to say I think that that level of firearms control is a great idea... - KBiggins

Liberals and Communists are the same thing. One hides behind the Hammer and Sickel, the other hides behind the false promise of a better world. - Kilgore 21:15, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
- I guess it would be bad form to say I think that that level of firearms control is a great idea...

Well, considering the site you're on, I guess you would be right. I still agree with the point that Hollywood forces way too much anti-gun bullshit around, though, especially when what they do is make movies with heavy, sometimes insane amounts of firearms violence.

I will agree with you on that point, it is fairly ironic that Hollywood does turn out so many gun-violence centered films which serve to further the opinion that guns are bad and trees are pretty to those who are either a) easily amused or b) idiots. I should clarify that I have no problem with safe, legal and registered firearms ownership. Oh and Kilgore... Seriously??? I mean, REALLY? I don't even know where to begin with your statment. - KBiggins

So what? Liberals are Communists, it's the truth. Personally I'm a Libertarian. It was the way I was raised. Liberals are Commies who what to destroy America. I love my country and would die defeating from those savage people. - Kilgore 02:10, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
  • It's a shame how deep someone will lower himself for a knighthood from the Labour Party. If Mr Connery ever had those convictions in real life, he would have turned down the Bond or other action roles as Patrick McGoohan did. Methinks he's still crawling over remarks he made in a 1965 Playboy interview about women.Foofbun 22:44, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

The man decided to ban all handguns to make society saffer huh? In the United States, crime rates have been consistantly declinning for years while concealed carry laws have been becoming more and more widespread and favorable to gun owners. Correlation does not equal causation so more people carrying guns may not have reduced crime rates, but this certainly proves that lots of armed people walking the streets DOES NOT increase gun crime. -Anonymous
