As effective as a ‘Bring Back Our Girls’ sign or the anyone of a dozen ribbons they’ve worn over the years signifying nothing.
Celebrities like Patricia Arquette, Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, and others, plan to make wear gun control bracelets at the 2016 Oscars while benefiting from massive increases in armed security at the event.
The bracelets are part of a gun control push sponsored by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
According to People magazine, the bracelets are “decorated in a simple black and gold design” and part of the Brady Campaign’s efforts to recruit celebs and other Hollywood “influencers” to join their push for gun control.
The Brady Campaign is pressing Congress to pass universal background checks, among other things. Those checks are the law of the land in California, Colorado, and Washington State, where they have proven absolutely impotent to stop determined attackers. California witnessed the May 2014 Santa Barbara attack at the hands of Elliot Rodger and the San Bernardino terror attack on December 2, 2015; Colorado witnessed the Planned Parenthood gunman on November 27 and a high profile gunman on Halloween day; and four people were killed by an unnamed gunman in Washington State on February 26, 2016; yet gun control advocates are pressing for these checks to be instituted nationally as a way “to stop gun violence.”
