Dennis Quaid, Amanda Peet Demand More Gun Control – VIDEO

By Debbie Schlussel


I used to be a fan of actor Dennis Quaid. No more. He and actress Amanda Peet made a stupid public (non)service announcement demanding more gun control. Check out the video below (as your mind keeps shouting STFU! STFU! STFU!) . . .

I’m not sure why they call the site, “Funny or Die.” They should just call it, “Die.” It ain’t funny, and the ad is sooooo stooooooooopid. The video was produced in partnership with the militant gun control lobbying group, the Brady Campaign and Center to Prevent Gun Violence, which should really be called the Brady Campaign to Promote Defenselessness.

Full disclosure: I know a guy who plays in Quaid’s band, “Dennis Quaid and the Sharks.” And I used to be a big fan, until I met Quaid and saw that he’s manorexic. Now, there’s another, better reason to dislike him. He used to say some conservatives things, like that he supported the right of Augusta National to maintain a male only membership, etc. But he’s changed.

I don’t know how the Quinnipiac poll they’re citing was worded, but I’ll bet I could get 97% of Americans polled to say they support the redistribution of Quaid’s showbiz career millions to the rest of us. So, based on popularity, maybe Congress should make a law . . . .

Quaid lives in a fancy mansion in suburban Los Angeles, and he has no worries of facing the kinds of dangers the rest of us face and against which we need guns to protect ourselves. Back in the day, Quaid was a coke addict. Maybe we should take away his guns because he might relapse and shoot someone by accident.

As for the rest of us, we don’t need more laws and restrictions limiting our access to mechanisms of self-defense, while armed criminals roam the country without ever going through the system already in place. More gun laws won’t stop another killing.

To paraphrase The Rock, Quaid and Amanda Peet would be best advised to drink a nice tall glass of STFU juice.

Why don’t they move to a gun control country where they ‘ll obviously be more safe than they are here ?

    Hello JayPee!

    1. It may not be a country, yet, but CHICAGO has very, very strict gun ownership laws. It must be a safe place, right?

    2. NORTH KOREA bans all civilians from possessing guns. “Dear Leader” controls the Military, allows no crime, and maintains control of who shall live and who shall not – what could be better?

    Hmmm, perhaps it is not the weapon, but the person!?!?

    I do agree with you. Let the idealistic sheeple search the world for UTOPIA, but I have a suspicion they will find themselves facing the MORLOCKS.

    Funnily enough, he would be. Gun murder rates are less than 100 in the UK, and something like 0.7 per 100,000. America had 30,000 – more than car accidents – in one year. That’s ridiculous. If you think that that is okay then your country is more fucked than I suspected.

The relevant part of the ad I saw (i.e. not the part dealing with dogs and football) dealt only with improving background checks and nothing else.

Unless this is some sort of slippery slope argument (Which in general I find to be intellectually dishonest) what is wrong with improving background checks?

I_AM_ME on February 4, 2016 at 7:50 am

    Like how? You have to get a background check now to purchase a gun. So how would you improve it? They’re answer: make more and more restrictions until no one, except politicians and the elite can purchase a gun. Restrictions:: Ever been treated for depression? Ever taken a psychotropic drug? Etc. Then doctor’s reports become gubmint property, as they are now with the ACA. Many of the shooters have purchased guns legally with background checks.

    Aside from the fact guns do not kill people; people kill people. I do not know of any gun that went off without a “people” pulling the trigger. Mental illness is the problem.

      The problem with background checks now is they don’t always work. People that would “fail” the check get guns. We need to improve the system so they are not permitted to get guns. You don’t drop a tool if it does not work when improving it will make it work.

      I happen to be a gun rights supporter and I believe the existence of concealed weapons does deter crime. In fact I support a tax deduction (up to a certain amount) for people to obtain guns and ammo.

      I_AM_ME on February 4, 2016 at 12:07 pm

        I_AM_ME, you’re right that our background checking in this country needs better incentives to adjust a little more on about some of the shootings that we were hearing and learning for some part of last year.

        But it’s inevitable that the overall anthropological evidence of shootngs refutes the anti-gunners argument of an epidemic of shootings, which it’s the complete opposite, because there is NO epidemic of gun violence in this nation.

        And to your main argument of background checking, the “Gun Control Act of 1968” regulates direct mail of all guns across state lines. The seller had to ship the gun to a federally licensed dealer. The buyer from there would then have to go to the dealer in person to fill out paperwork and the a background check, so yeah, there needs to be some improvements of background checkings!

        Sean R. on February 5, 2016 at 12:28 am

        Which background checks failed I_A_M? The kid in Sandy Hook who used his mom’s gun? Or, the POS muslim that borrowed his neighbor’s rifle in San Bernardino? Wait a second, that POS passed a background ckeck, and purchased a couple of handguns in California, if I’m not mistaken. I guess you’re right. But, how do we fix it?

Rush Limbaugh once suggested a law called ‘Maximum Wages’, which I think should be enacted and applied to Dennis Quaid, Mark _uckerburg, Elon Musk, Jeff Bozo and the whole lot of them.

I’m with ya….the mindless wonders of celebrity in America.

Maureen on February 4, 2016 at 12:31 pm

Yes, STFU is the appropriate response to this dreck. Do these Hollywood idiots realize how much Americans HATE being told how to think by them? They’re just actors!

Hillel on February 4, 2016 at 1:14 pm

Amanda and Dennis are conforming to the new leftist Anti-Gun. Of course, these people usually have personal security details or live in secured gated communities. These are amenities that most people cannot afford. Quaid and Peet have no shame, and have done this public service announcement in order to sustain their none too healthy careers.

Worry on February 4, 2016 at 3:09 pm

To bad he didn’t really get TB like he did as Doc holiday in Wyatt Burp. Funny how the Hollywood crowd has no problemo making money with guns in their movies, just don’t own them in real life…i guess?

brian on February 4, 2016 at 5:39 pm

I always despised the over-rated, bland, Dennis, but Randy, OTOH, is an acting genius.

DS_ROCKS! on February 4, 2016 at 9:46 pm

My overall view of this little video by both Quaid and Peete is that they failed to give out any empirical evidence on how background checking orchestrates into execution.

For instance, regulations should be a tad stricter, ie, gun-show loopholes closed, background checking, psych-tests for concealed carry semi-auto rifle purchase, etc. Those who are responsible with his or her gun(s) shouldn’t be barred or prohibited from buying a gun, especially for hunting or any shooting sport.

Sean R. on February 5, 2016 at 12:35 am

Both Quaid and Peete are just more of the long line of Hollyweird idiots who think that guns are just evil and shouldn’t be owned by the “little” people. I don’t know about the rest of you but I get so sick and tired from being preached to by these numbskulls. Brain dead liberals need to understand that gun control does not work and all that it does is keep law abiding citizens from owning guns. The criminals don’t follow the law to begin with and get their guns by other means. Like Quaid’s and Pette’s hero Obamaladingaling I guess the Second Amendment to the Constitution is just a phrase written on a useless document. These two geniuses along with the rest of the anti-gun crowd need to really drink big helpings of STFU juice and again quit thinking that we give a rats — what they say. Larry the Cable Guy said it best about guns, “Guns don’t kill people husbands that come home early do.”

    “….[D]on’t follow the law to begin with…” bingo con la chalupa, Ken B. Obama is the posterboy for following the law when it suits him. The spirit of the law has even less merit than the letter of the law to most people in Hollywood and Washington D.C. Laws now apply to the middle class, whomever that is, these days. D.A.s and AUSAs, et al., use “prosecutorial discretion”, and an assortment of other tricks, to unequally apply the law. The blindfold has come off, and these erudite fools have their thumb on the scales of justice.

Ken B., I neglected to mention Hillary wickedly-Rotten Clinton-the posterhag for do as I say, not as I feloniously do. It would not surprise me in the least bit if her fingerprints were all over that .50 cal. that Joaquin “el Chapo” Guzman-Loera had at his pad when the mexican marines kicked down the doors, except that Sean Penn probably licked them all clean. Fast Times at Ridgemont High meets the Fast and the Furious.

Ken B, I forgot to mention the posterhag, Hillary wicked-Rotten Clinton’s motto – Do as I say, not as I feloniously do.
She probably left her fingerprints all over that .50 cal. that Joaquin “el Chapo” Guzman-Loera had at his crash pad, except that Sean Penn licked it clean when he was fawning all over him. Fast Times at Ridgemont High meets the Fast and the Furious.
