Anne Hathaway Shares Comment on Gun Control in America

Anne Hathaway and her husband Adam Shulman sample some fresh strawberries at the farmer’s market on Sunday (May 15) in Los Angeles.

Earlier that day, the Oscar winning actress took to her Instagram account to promote Katie Couric‘s special on guns in America, Under the Gun, which aired that evening.

“We have a responsibility to each other to learn how to have a grown up conversation about this issue- maybe this program will help give us common ground,” Anne wrote on her Instagram account about the documentary. Watch a snippet below.

    LOL…”“We have a responsibility to each other to learn how to have a grown up conversation about this issue- maybe this program will help give us common ground,”

    What kind of statement is that? Plus, everyone knows that Katie Couric is a biased journalist, who is also a news network killer. Katie Couric is highly overrated.

  • spencer60

    Who?

    And why should I care that some B-list actress is promoting a gun control propaganda film?

  • spencer60

    Hence the fact that she’s a ‘journalist’ for a failing internet company now instead of being on TV anymore…

  • Cruizin1960

    There can be no adult conversation until those on the anti-gun bandwagon actually look at what was intended by the founders when the included the 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights. There can be no adult conversation until these people understand that a militia is not the National Guard or Army. There can be no discussion until they understand that this is not a right granted to the people by the government but a guaranteed right. There can be no discussion until they understand that all of their background check, assault weapon BS will have ZERO impact on crime. (the reason the previous ban on assault weapons was allowed to expire is because the data showed that there was no decrease in crimes committed with these so-called assault weapons.

    All these comments, so funny….

    “There can be no discussion until they understand that this is not a right granted to the people by the government but a guaranteed right. ”

    Actually, it is a right granted to the people by the government. It’s from the 1689 Bill of Rights, and then restated in the 2nd Amendment. The difference is that the British have moved on – but for many Americans it is the new golden calf, with the people led to the Promised Land by Aaron LaPierre.

  • Sho Rembo

    Wrong. Self defense is a natural Right. Every living thing has a Right to defend themselves. Using the best tool to achieve that is therefore a natural Right.

    The government does not grant Rights, nor does it have Rights. The People allow the government certain powers. Unfortunately there are millions of people who do not understand this.

  • Cruizin1960

    You are wrong. The right amendment protects a right that existed BEFORE the creation of any government and specifically prohibits the government from infringing on that right. It involved the inalienable right to self defense which is not granted by any monarch or government.

  • Paladin

    Meh… Hide the makeup from these so called “stars” and there would be no attraction.

  • Bill of Rights Supporter

    In complete honesty, the fact isn’t so much that the British have moved on as they are still smarting from the loss of their American colonies due to the right to keep and bear arms. Remember your history, what started the battle at Lexington and Concord?

  • FrancisKing

    Are you sure you’re not still smarting from us burning your White House to the ground in 1812?

  • FrancisKing

    Self defence is one thing. Walking down the road with a loaded gun is another.

  • FrancisKing

    William of Orange had to sign the 1689 Bill of Rights in order to be king. The right to bear arms is in that bill of rights, but only for protestants. The 2nd Amendment rewrites this clause but without the religious test.

  • Bill of Rights Supporter

    Naw, we went on to win that one more decisively.

    That win may have not been possible without the encouragement to keep and bear arms by the second amendment.

  • Sho Rembo

    Certainly you aren’t suggesting crime only happens in ones home? Or are you suggesting that a criminal will wait until you go to your house to retrieve your firearm?

  • FrancisKing

    I’m suggesting that this doesn’t happen in the UK. I never feel that I want to take a loaded gun for a walk to the local shops. So, what’s up?

  • FrancisKing

    The Second Amendment didn’t help. The reason why we managed to burn your White House to the ground was that your militias (A well-regulated militia being necessary to the defence of a free state…) were incompetent and generally used by the British Army for target practice.

    At New Orleans, the militia did turn out, but again without rifles and ammunition. All of the damage was done by the Federal artillery, firing grapeshot. When Andrew Jackson stood for office, he amended the history. In the new history, it was the 2nd Amendment militia that defended New Orleans. Hurrah!

    By the 1830s all of the militias were abandoned.

    Nobody won that war. It was a stupid squabble between a bunch of vicious old men. Worse it took first rate British soldiers away from the European battlefield at a critical time. Far too many of the ‘British’ army at Waterloo were second rate Brunswickers, Dutch, Belgians. At least the Duke of Wellington turned down the dubious honour of commanding the British army in North America.

  • Bill of Rights Supporter

    Perhaps you have a different understanding of winning or losing a war but the fact remains that the US Won its independence and its land from the crown. By any measure, that is a firm win amd still stings doesn’t it?

    And, you have proved my point about the Second Amendment. Without rifles or ammo it is not useful and so, any efforts to infringe upon it is Unamerican. The US giving up militias in 1830? I don’t think so. You are right though, Jackson did do wonders in New Orleans.

  • Bill of Rights Supporter

    So, it is true, many Militia from TN and KY showed up without rifles or ammunition… but they were outfitted by locals… thanks to the Second Amendment.

    And, do not try to downplay the contribution of the Militia as they comprised 75% of Jackson’s 4700 men.

    No, I am sorry, but you could barely be any more biased in your understanding of the event or contribution of the citizen militia. It is because we had militia man that the U.S. sent the Brits home with their tails between their legs.

    “…but the fact remains that the US Won its independence…”

    You’re confusing two wars – the one that started in 1776 and the one that started in 1812. We’re discussing the one that started in 1812.

    “The US giving up militias in 1830? I don’t think so”

    The US did give up militias in the 1830s, according to the Oxford History of the United States: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxford_History_of_the_United_States

    This is highly recommended, particularly the Pulitzer Prize Winning ‘Battle Cry of Freedom’.

    As a matter of historical fact, the militia played no part in the attack upon New Orleans. It was the Federal Artillery which shot up the British soldiers as they blundered around in the fog. To cap it all, the attack occurred after peace was agreed between the two sides.

  • Bill of Rights Supporter

    I am not confusing the two wars. We won our independence in the first Revolutionary War but the War of 1812 was very much a second war to maintain independence.

    Fact is, our treaties with England were weak, the Brits really didn’t honor them and thought they’d come back around put us back in the fold. Well, we sent them packing thanks to our militia, military, American resolve and leadership by Gen. Jackson.

    And no, we have never given up on our militias. There was a push for a more centralized and standing army but nothing was put to law eliminating militias. In fact, we still have them today.

    I think the Oxford History of the United States is indeed an interesting book and version of history but I hope you take a broader view of your sources.

    And I find it rich you point to the peace treaty that was signed, perhaps your source and study has not been informed of this important fact:

    “A big discovery has come from British war records: A set of secret orders given in October 1814 to Maj. Gen. Edward Pakenham, the commander of the British invasion of the Gulf Coast.

    The orders directed Pakenham to fight on regardless of any peace deal and capture New Orleans, said Ronald Drez, the military historian who uncovered the orders. He dug up the records last spring during research in London for his new book, ‘The War of 1812, Conflict and Deception: The British Attempt to Seize New Orleans and Nullify the Louisiana Purchase.’

    This should put to rest any doubt about British designs in America, Drez argues.

    “It truly is the smoking gun,” Drez said. “They say to Pakenham: ‘If
    you hear of a peace treaty, pay no attention, continue to fight.’”

    And, you also seem to be unaware of the contribution of the Militia during the night attack battle of December 23rd. No, my friend, the Militia was heavily involved during the entire Battle of New Orleans. The TN and KY militias were under resourced but that was addressed.

    Here are some more links to help you get a better understanding of the British loss. Remember, History is written by the victors. Using an Oxford book about a great English loss may not be the wisest of source materials.

    It only affirmed Natural Rights, which are as old as time. The right to self defense is the root of the 2nd Amendment and THAT is a natural right, not one granted by any person or institution.

  • desertcelt

    Yes the British have moved on to Socialism, servitude and the nanny state where knives, sharp objects and the right of self defense are are forbidden. We will not go down that path!

  • desertcelt

    What would you suggest, a basket of tofu or a loud whistle to allow other sheep to know that a predator is nearby?

  • desertcelt

    You smug limeys pleaded for weapons when the 3rd Reich was on a roll. You have learned nothing.

  • FrancisKing

    We received a few guns in odd calibres from the US gun owners as a propaganda stunt. Also a large number of standardised calibre guns and equipment from the US and Canadian arsenals.

    The tragedy was that we didn’t need to fight the war against Germany. Britain just had to stick to the treaty provisions of the Stresa Front.
