Someone overdue on their fifteen minutes - Harvey Weinstein

| No Comments
What a putz. From Emily Miller writing at The Washington Times:
MILLER: Harvey Weinstein and Meryl Streep new movie to make NRA �wish they weren�t alive�
Movie producer Harvey Weinstein announced for the first time on Howard Stern�s radio show that he is making a full feature drama to try to destroy the National Rifle Association.

Mr. Stern asked Mr. Weinstein on Wednesday whether he owned a gun. The Hollywood heavyweight replied that he did not and never would. �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.�

Mr. Weinstein then revealed his secret project about the gun rights group. �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 shock jock asked whether the film was going to be a documentary. Mr. Weinstein said no, that it would be a �big movie like a �Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.��
Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Ditto for beliefs but there is a big difference between the two when it comes to fact-checking. Beliefs need to be backed up with facts and a lot of the gun grabbers fall seriously short in this department. On May 2013, the NRA membership passed the five million mark -- I bet that Mr. Weinstein's little movie will be seen by maybe a million people at most and I sincerely doubt that. Polemics do not sell. The irony is that he produced these movies: Django Unchained, Sin City, Grindhouse, Inglourious Basterds, Kill Bill, and Rambo to name a few. Emily Miller is well versed on firearms and the law. She is the author of Emily Gets Her Gun: ...But Obama Wants to Take Yours
