Hollywood could be exempt from NY's assault-weapons ban

I guess someone should start a campaign to encourage vendors of firearms and manufacturers not to sell to celebrities?

I could be wrong on the matter, but Hollywood might be part of the problem with today's youth.

Basically NY doesn't want to miss out on a Hollywood revenue stream so they're going to give them special privileges.

Film makers have specific exemptions in CA's AW laws that go back to 1989.

I'm an actor. Can I have my assault weapons now?

Don't forget to exempt the NY Giants too.

Oh, and David Gregory

They are proposing an amended law to make this happen. Others are talking about fighting the amended law to prevent its passage and therefore keep the current law in place. As it stands now ALL law enforcement is restricted to 7 rounds until the amended law is passed as well as not allowed to possess evil black rifles either. Keeping the current law in place increases the likelihood of a suit being filed to overturn the law in its entirety.

There are similar exemptions for that industry here in CA.

Suppose this happens? The suppose all gun owners in America quit going to box office movies, renting movies and canceled their satellite/cable subscriptions?

I believe the only way our side will ever have our voices back in the public square is to do just this. It is time Hollywood started respecting their customer base instead of attacking it.

Every time you do any of the aforementioned things, you are paying people to spend their millions towards efforts to have our freedoms taken away from us. Take up a hobby, read a book or better still, to the range instead.
