Hollywood Liberal Says He’s Making The Movie That Will Destroy The 2nd Amendment

Hollywood Liberal Says He’s Making The Movie That Will Destroy The 2nd Amendment
UPI
Movie producer Harvey Weinstein said he did not and would never own a firearm, and he doesn’t believe other Americans should have the right to own one.

During an appearance on radio shock-jock Howard Stern’s show this week, movie producer Harvey Weinstein said that he’s teaming up with actress Meryl Streep to produce a feature film that will make gun enthusiasts, namely members of the National Rifle Association, “wish they weren’t alive.”

Weinstein told Stern that he did not and would never own a firearm, and he doesn’t believe other Americans should have the right to own one.

“I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it,” the producer said. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.”

Weinstein hinted that the movie will directly attack the NRA and its members.

“I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,” he said. “I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this head-on. And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.”

The chairman of Weinstein Co., which was formerly Miramax, also told Stern that the full-feature drama he is working on will demonize gun rights so unabashedly that those who see the film will leave thinking, “Gun stocks — I don’t want to be involved in that stuff.”

“It’s going to be like crash and burn,” he went on.

Deadline Hollywood offered a few more details about the film in an article following the interview:

The formidable chairman of The Weinstein Co., Harvey Weinstein, confirmed to Deadline today they will be taking on the NRA gun lobby head-on with a film entitled The Senator’s Wife which will star the just-Oscar-nominated Streep (August: Osage County) and other top talent in a movie he described as “the new Mr. Smith Goes To Washington” — the beloved Frank Capra film that starred Jimmy Stewart about one man’s fight against corrupt politicians in Washington.

Prodded by Stern, Weinstein said that some people on the planet should be allowed to possess firearms for self-defense, but only in cases where the firearm is not personally owned and in countries where massive unrest is unfolding.

Asked to imagine the plight of the Jewish people disarmed and murdered by Nazi Germany, Weinstein told Stern that he might have used a firearm against his aggressors if he were in their shoes and he “found a gun” on the way to a concentration camp.

Washington Times opinion editor Emily Miller quipped in a piece discussing the producer’s movie plan, “Mr. Weinstein has been watching too many movies if he thinks the good guys find fully loaded firearms in convenient locations to use only when necessary.”
