Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher sent a tweet from his official account attempting to advocate for gun control in the wake of the horrible Thousand Oaks attack in California, but accidentally admitted to breaking the law himself.
"No one is taking your guns"
The actor sent several tweets in support of strengthening gun control laws in one of the most restrictive states in the Republic, but one tweet raised eyebrows by the admission he made.

"This isn’t an either/or it’s a both!" Kutcher tweeted. "Support mental health initiatives & support Gun Reform Now!!"
"My friend gave me a gun as a gift in the parking lot of the borderline on my birthday," he claimed. "I’ve never shot it. I don’t think I ever will.❤️to the families of the lost. Change is coming."
The claim that his friend gave him a gun as a gift made many wonder if he was admitting to receiving a gun illegally in California without following proper registration procedures.
"I think Ashton Kutcher just admitted to violating California law," responded NRA-TV host Cam Edwards.
"Firearms transfers have to go through a federally licensed firearms dealer who performs a background check and holds the firearm for the mandatory 10-day waiting period," he explained.
The actor began his social media advocacy by revealing that he had celebrated one of his birthdays at the site of the Thousand Oaks massacre, and that he could have died if the killer has chosen a different night for his attack.
Kutcher added other tweets using cliched liberal narratives on gun control.
"The right to bear arms was built on the notion that we could form a militia to fight back against an unjust government," he claimed. "Is that realistic today?"

"A nuclear bomb is an arm," he claimed. "Do you have the right to own that? Gun Reform Now!! No one is taking your guns."
