The National Rifle Association (NRA) has come in for a great deal of criticism in light of its recent actions regarding the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Now, that criticism has turned to mockery.
The Left–leaning news site The Daily Beast has produced a video highlighting the NRA’s list of anti-gun celebrities, a subject that frequently comes up during debates over gun rights. However, The Daily Beast has chosen to outright parody the very concept by cobbling together every clip of the various Hollywood stars represented on the list wielding guns.
“The NRA keeps a list of ‘anti-gun celebrites,'” the ad begins. “But watch out! They’re armed!”
Some of the celebrities represented include Meryl Streep, Dustin Hoffman, Billy Crystal, Jack Nicholson, Jodie Foster and Sylvester Stallone.
Does the humor work? You can watch the clip below and decide for yourself:
