Ashton Kutcher is the latest actor to jump on the bandwagon that’s already chock-full with liberal celebrities calling for gun control in the wake of Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada. Kutcher now believes that “nobody needs guns” because, according to him, the inanimate objects are responsible for the deaths at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, not the person who pulled the trigger. However, his misguided remarks backfired majorly when people discovered what he has in his own house.
As BizPacReview reports, celebrities have discovered that they can often resurrect a fading career by injecting their voice into the latest political controversy. It worked for Alec Baldwin. Now, Ashton Kutcher, most famous for playing dunces in films like “Dude, Where’s My Car?” and the television series “That 70s Show,” has won himself a good fifteen minutes of fame by adding his “expert” opinion to the gun control crusade Democrats have taken up in response to the tragic Las Vegas massacre.
Kutcher released a tweet this week saying that nobody “needs these weapons,” presumably referring to the rifles which were found in 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock’s room at the Mandalay Bay. However, Kutcher literally contradicted himself in the very same sentence, calling himself “a hunter and a sportsman” who has owned guns since he was 12-years-old. Apparently, he wants to have his cake and eat it, too, but he also thinks that nobody else should be allowed to eat cake. He’s either a total jerk or really stupid. Perhaps both.
I've had a gun since I was 12 yrs old but enough is enough. I'm a hunter and a sportsman but No body needs these weapons.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Ashton Kutcher and other celebrities want us to “do something” to stop the violence. I agree. We should do something. However, it has nothing to do with guns or legislation.
There is always going to be evil in this world. Take away firearms, and you simply get criminals who find other avenues to exact their evil plots, like the terrorists who use knives or acid or trucks to do as much damage as possible. So, we must find the root cause of the evil in order to snuff out as much of it as possible.
As our society turns further and further away from Christian values and systematically rejects God in favor of living a sinful, secular lifestyle, we inevitably see the consequences. The only way for us to see a positive change in the world around us is to collectively turn back towards Christ, not away from Him.
And so, Ashton Kutcher joins the long list of Hollywood hypocrites who want to take away the guns of law-abiding citizens, but also want to make millions of dollars off violent films so that they can pay their gun-toting security guards to keep them safe. Truly, these are the last people who should be commenting on these issues, as their fame only seems to make them more out-of-touch as the time passes. However, in a society which values social media followers above all else, it is unlikely that we will be able to escape the opinions of these outspoken, overpaid, liberal actors anytime soon.
