Dave Bautista, Marvel’s Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy star, gave some extraordinarily bad and mockable firearms and election advice recently, because as we know.. Drax is
Dave is allowed to be wrong, someone has to be. Stupid opinions are not illegal. But… Dave… C’mon man. Biden didn’t need you to remind everyone that he is anti-gun as all get out, especially after months of record gun sales. Dick move, sir. He has enough image trouble without the reminder he wants another Assault Weapons Ban, registration, NFA expansion, buy backs, and all that happy horse sh*t.
There is a reason that Biden and Harris have been extraordinarily quiet on guns.. it isn’t a winning play. That part of their base has never been weaker electorally in recent decades than it is right now, and you just had to jump out and loudly remind every that on guns they suck.
You did so in the most panderingly problematic way possible, too… call those who disagree with you idiots and just saying that Biden and Harris are Pro-2A when there’s a pile of evidence to the contrary. And, of course, it is the way you see the 2A, which is obviously the only way because.. narcissism, probably.
Millions, perhaps even billions of people watching and enjoying you scream, “Die, spaceship!” does not make you an authority on defensive firearm use. Sorry.
Therefore, arbitrarily stating that any one of the millions of people who use AR-15’s for home defense, including highly trained DoD personnel, Law Enforcement professionals, and expert shooters, are all idiots is rather… idiotic. Doing so without any semblance of a theory as to ‘why’ it is idiotic to rely on the AR-15 just further erodes the point as just a plea using your popularity in place of expertise.
Combining that with an avowed desire to remove the AR-15 from the general population makes your opinion on the matter more suspect. Joe Biden’s absolutely unquestionable lack of anything resembling working knowledge on self defense…
Knowledge both legally suspect and practically dangerous have flowed forth from Biden’s mouth on many an occasion. Whether this is pandering to anti-2A supporters or genuinely misguided belief is unknown. My general lack of respect for the practical intelligence of politicos makes me believe the latter.
In short, Dave, you can say what you will. But absolutely nobody should listen to you as an authority.
