With guns and the Second Amendment, most people fall on the left or the right. Granted, there are some who walk a tightrope in between, but most are unable to do so for long and fall on one of the two sides. They are either for guns or against them. One thing that pisses a lot of gun owners off, is when famous people take a stand on the subject, injecting their influence upon people.
Recently, I was reading through the comments on some of our older articles about celebrities and their thoughts about firearms, and found out that a lot people say they don't really care what celebrities think or that they should keep their opinions to themselves. Of course, I agree here. It would be fantastic if famous people just kept out of the affairs of us normal people.
Sadly, that'll never happen for two reasons. First, they have a “moral” obligation to the people in charge. If they go against that grain they lose their jobs. Second, we have this little thing called the First Amendment. They have the right to give their opinion about every little thing that goes on, including guns, and the people on the wrong side of the fence expect them to stand up against us. This is one of the reasons why I try to highlight those celebrities who are on our side.
Then again, personally speaking, I want to know who the bad ones are, too. I refuse to spend money on a Matt Damon movie. It's killing me that another Bourne movie is out on the big screen right now, because I refuse to spend money on it. Believe it or not; I really liked the other movies in this series–even though I honestly believe it's time to move on to a different franchise.
But, I'd watch Keanu Reeves all day long. Because, even though he doesn't own a gun, he isn't “fundamentally against citizens having access to a weapon.” Those are his words, and it sounds like he is currently walking that proverbial tightrope I spoke of earlier out of fear of not wanting to lose his job.
I think it's refreshing to find a famous person who is truly not against us. Therefore, I'm going to put all of the celebrity-gun-stance articles in one place for you to find them easily, if you care. If you don't care, that's fine too. I'll update this each time I find someone else who makes their feelings on guns known.

Keanu takes a more backseat approach to the Second Amendment. He believes people should have access to guns, but thinks that it can cause problems. While training for his John Wick movies, he's become a good shot. Click on the picture to see him in action shooting 3-gun.
