Harvey Weinstein is one of the most powerful executives in Hollywood, and now he’s told Howard Stern that he’s aiming to take down the National Rifle Association with his own greatest weapon — Meryl Streep.

Harvey Weinstein has never been particularly shy about sharing his political views, and on Howard Stern‘s Jan. 14 show he told the shock jock all about his plans to make the National Rifle Association “wish they weren’t alive” via his next big film.

Harvey Weinstein Takes Aim At NRA

It’s practically news when there isn’t a tragic shooting nowadays, and Harvey told Howard that he’s simply had enough, Mediaite reports. The Miramax and Weinstein Company founder came on Howard’s show to discuss an upcoming project based on a novel about a Holocaust uprising, but the conversation quickly turned to guns when Howard asked the iconic producer if he owned one.

“I never want to have a gun,” Harvey said. “I don’t think we need guns in this country, and I hate it, and I think the NRA is a disaster area.”

Harvey’s anti-NRA game plan, he explained, is to bring in a certain Academy Award nominee. “I’m gonna make a movie with Meryl Streep and we’re gonna take this issue head-on, and they’re gonna wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.”

So… something like the 2005 Aaron Eckhart flick Thank You For Smoking? Not quite, according to Harvey.

“[It will be a] big movie like a ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.’”

Harvey also stressed that he thinks that guns are necessary in some instances, like, for example, self defense against genocide in foreign countries. His vision is to scare people who don’t necessarily need guns away from firearms. He wants moviegoers to leave thinking, “Gun stocks — I don’t want to be involved in that stuff.”

 

If Harvey and Streep are in, we’re in. What do you think, HollywoodLifers

From Harvey Weinsteins page on Wikipedia;
Reservoir Dogs
Pulp Fiction
Jackie Brown
Kill Bill 1&2
Grindhouse
Inglourious Basterds
True Romance

Django Unchained
Sin City
Rambo

Gangs of New York

Anyone who starred in, produced, directed or made a penny off the above movies in Weinsteins resume can not say a damn thing about guns or gun violence. 8 Quentin Tarentino movies he was executive producer on. What a hypocrite! And Rambo? Seriously? This is the flawed logic of the liberal left. They profit from showing guns used in criminal ways and glorify and benefit financially from this, but turn right around and out of the other side of their mouths, blame the NRA who sponsors gun clubs and shooting safety courses for violence? Harvey, burn in hell!

Weinstein says he never wants to have a gun. He’s content to have government employees with guns enforce our laws and protect our national interests. What a dingbat.

Weinstein is an azzhole. Where would he be without guns in his movies? If they take away our guns they take away our freedom. Guns don’t kill by themselves. It is people who kill. I need my gun for protection. If you take guns from good citizens, then it is only the bad guys who will have them because the good citizens are the only ones who register our guns. The bad guys don’t.

You’ve rather missed the point, mvk. No one’s coming to take your pet gun away. Not to worry, you’ll continue to find it purring under your pillow each and every night.

They continue to try.. For example just a few weeks ago the president banned the re-importation of two types of rifles, the M1 carbine and the M1 Garand And you probably don’t remember Diane Feinstein trying to ban modern sporting rifles, but we oldtimers remember. Feinstein said on CBS-TV’s 60 Minutes, February 5, 1995, “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them . . . Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.”
So you statement may be technically true, but only because because we will not let them.

This is ironic, coming from a producer who’s earned a fortune making some of the absolute-most violent movies in modern history. What a jack***. Of course he doesn’t have a gun. That’s because his bodyguards do. And if you’re mindlessly “in” because he and Streep are, then you don’t know how to think. Why don’t you use your position to call this useless jerk on his hypocrisy?
