It is a commonplace for celebrities to use their influence to spread their ideas on government and politics.
The same case is shown n the Rosie O’Donnell show.
She was discussing about her stance on gun control.
In this episode, Rosie interviewed Tom Selleck who appeared to discuss his upcoming movie, The Love Letter, but he was interrupted by Rosie and her Second Amendment viewpoints. Tom Selleck’s grace and poise were part of thee things we loved about him as Magnum P.I. This show ended long time ago, but his character prevails.
According to our source, Conservative Fighters, Rosie interviewed him and she started pestering Selleck about the commercial he did for the NRA. His response was gracious and measured, but he didn’t back down to her badgering. He stood back to his decisions and he explained his feelings in a mature and respectable way. His response was so good that he made Rosie apologize for her own bad behavior.
“You also have the freedom of speech, but you’re not allowed to scream ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater because it threatens the safety of other people. Assault weapons threaten the safety of other people. There’s no reason in my opinion to have them. You wanna have a hunting rifle? Great. You wanna have a handgun?” Rosie asked him.
“Do you really think the Second Amendment is in the Constitution to guarantee hunting and target shooting? Do you really think that’s what the Founding Fathers meant?” Tom responded.
“I think the Second Amendment is in the Constitution so that we can have muskets when the British people come over in 1800. I don’t think it’s in the Constitution to have assault weapons in the year 2000,” Rosie said. As Tom takes a sip of his coffee, Rosie asks him if she is wrong and he nods his head.
Here are some reactions from the viewers who commented on this interview:
“She invited Tom on her show and tried to discredit him. He remained very calm and logical. She only made herself look like an ass.”
“Some people just have class and some people are just trash.”
“When Rosie asked ‘Don’t the guns bear some responsibility?’, Tom should have asked her if the spoon bears the responsibility for her obesity. The gun and the spoon are only tools in the hands of men.”
“That woman O’Donnell is a fool and there is no cure for her. For example, you cannot buy an assault weapon at the gun store. A real assault weapon is a machine gun. Criminals get guns, even in Mexico and in South America.”
