Liberal celebrity Alyssa Milano criticized Americans for buying up record levels of guns and ammunition in a video posted to her Twitter account on Thursday, calling for the gun purchases to be stopped in an unspecified fashion.
Americans bought over 2 million firearms in March of 2020, over a million more than this time last year. We have to keep each other safe by social distancing and washing our hands and not bringing dangerous firearms into our homes. #StopTheCoronavirusGunSurge #NoRA pic.twitter.com/O5J98QXTFO

Milano is one of the liberals displeased that Americans have chosen to arm themselves in record numbers during the coronavirus epidemic. More than 2.5 million firearms were purchased in the month of March alone, an all-time record that easily smashes the second place month.
Milano claims “stockpiling weapons could have dire consequences on our own personal safety and those around us.”
The actress makes a vague call to “stop the coronavirus gun surge,” without calling for a means to prevent Americans from lawfully acquiring guns.
In an era where Americans are facing an unprecedented viral pandemic, it’s hard to think of anything that seems more irrelevant than the moralistic and ultimately empty gestures of wealthy Hollywood celebrities. The celebrity culture of the early 2000’s increasingly seems like a tired distraction, with most Americans more interesting in paying attention to events that actually effect their own lives.
The actress has been known to protest Second Amendment groups such as the NRA while in the presence of her own armed private security. Most recently, she’s made herself a target of criticism for some on the progressive left for discounting the accusations of Tara Reade, a woman who is claiming that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her while working as a senate aide in the early 1990’s.
Milano, who vocally supported the #MeToo movement, seemed to go missing in action when it came to sexual assault allegations against the presumptive Democrat nominee, later rejecting Reade’s allegations.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
