It’s hard to find a movie or primetime TV star these days that actually has something in common with hunters. You know, common guys like you and I. Most are leaning left and would rather embrace gun control than squeeze the trigger on a plump squirrel to fry up in the pan for a tasty camp snack. That seems odd since the majority of TV shows and movies include firearms. Hollywood loves guns when they make them money, but hate them when it’s popular to bash them publicly.
There is one refreshing, veteran actor out there that doesn’t hide his respect and protection for the Second Amendment: Tom Selleck. Yes, it’s Magnum P.I and if you’re a Magnum fan (I’m actually a Quigley and Jesse Stone fan) you’re going to love the fact Selleck is going to be on TV again this fall in the new series “Blue Bloods” on CBS. I provide a link to CBS, but I’m still not talking to Katie Couric.
Did you also know that Selleck is a board of director member for the NRA? He owns a ranch in California, keeps a few saddle horses and is a fan of Filson clothing. He’s truly a breath of fresh air over the typical Hollywood hot air. I think you get the point if I just mention Lohan, Hilton or the current release of Gibson’s top 10 hits.
I wouldn’t look for any major TV shows or movies portraying hunting in a fair fashion, but at least we know there are a few actors out there that relate to our lifestyle.
Have a great weekend.
Quit laughing. I could play Quigley or a least little Quigley.
