George Clooney Gets Horrific News After Telling Whole World He’s Anti-Gun

If you’re a celebrity and your life is threatened by any major terrorist organization, what’s the safest way to protect yourself? Guns, of course — whether it be a gun on your person or in the hands of trained security guards.

Whose lives are possibly being threatened by a terrorist organization? Those of actor George Clooney and his wife Amal, unfortunately. Amal is an attorney specializing in international law and human rights who has brought a court case against the Islamic State in a French court. That’s bound to attract attention from the group, and it’s making George rightfully nervous.

Which celebrities have been conspicuously against guns? George and Amal Clooney, of course, who were major supporters of the March for Our Lives; Amal has blamed mass shootings in America on “guns, and how widely and easily available they are.”

So, let’s start with the basics. According to the U.K. Daily Mail, George Clooney told a podcast that his family was in danger due to the case Amal was bringing on behalf of Nadia Murad, who claims Islamic State group terrorists captured her back in 2014.

The Yazidi woman says that the group trafficked her as a sex slave. If the case succeeds, those who were responsible could face justice in an international court.

No matter what you think of the Clooneys, this is a pretty noble cause, I think anyone would admit. However, it comes with a certain amount of danger.

“My wife is taking the first case against ISIS to court. We have plenty of issues,” Clooney said on the podcast. “Real, proper, security issues that we have to deal with on a fairly daily basis.

“We don’t want our kids to be targets, so we have to pay attention to that. But we also live our lives, we don’t hide in corners.”

And, as Clooney noted, it’s difficult to hide when you’re one of the most recognizable couples on the planet.

“My wife and I wanted to walk with our kids in Central Park and that’s just not possible,” he said. “We’ve tried. We walk out the door and everyone surrounds us. There’s a bounty on my kids heads for a photo.”

So, how do you manage that kind of risk? Protection. But Clooney and his wife have both come out with the one constitutionally protected form of protection there is, the firearm. Last year, Clooney and his wife gave a half-million dollars to the March for Our Lives, the series of pro-gun control protests after the Parkland shooting.

“Our family will be there on March 24 to stand side by side with this incredible generation of young people from all over the country, and in the name of our children Ella and Alexander, we’re donating 500,000 dollars to help pay for this groundbreaking event. Our children’s lives depend on it,” a statement from Clooney read, according to Reuters.

While Clooney declined to be interviewed by Parkland students for the event, he went on to co-sign the aims of young activists in a letter published in The U.K. Guardian.

“The fact that no adults will speak on the stage in D.C. is a powerful message to the world that if we can’t do something about gun violence, then you will. The issue is going to be this, anyone you ask would feel proud to be interviewed by you, but it’s so much more effective if it’s young people,” he wrote.

“Amal and I stand behind you, in support of you, in gratitude to you,” he said. “You make me proud of my country again.”

The two attended the march, however, and Amal Clooney made it clear to Vogue that she believed guns were to blame for violence in America.

“I’ve seen lots of commentary where people have tried to say, ‘This isn’t about having too many guns or allowing semiautomatic and automatic weapons to be purchased too easily — surely this is about mental health, or about violence and movies,’” she said. “The fact is, there are violent movies all over the world, and there are mental-health issues in other countries. But this doesn’t happen in other developed countries. The difference is guns, and how widely and easily available they are.”

Statistics don’t bear this out, but whatever. The point is that the couple is in grave danger, the kind of danger where self-defense would be highly useful.

Of course, the Clooneys could be availing themselves of protection of the armed sort, which would be better for them but profoundly hypocritical. They wouldn’t be the only ones who believe in protection for me, but not for thee — as if your safety didn’t matter.

One would hope that this threat would shake Clooney out of his anti-gun stance. Then again, the ability of Hollywood stars to handle cognitive dissonance knows no bounds.

    We have a RIGHT to be SAFE first for our own just as you have the right to protect your children. We will always protect our own no matter what soap box you are on for some ignorant cause that you do not even abide by yourself. You hypocrite. We as well as you have a right to protect our children.

    It has been proven in the Harvard law study that this country that is very armed and allowed for the Constitution to protect their self against radical government,The Harvard law studies showed up at the station here in regard to murder and prime because we are orange is about 15th 16th or 17th at the list of the nations that have their people disarmed. Another words were 17 and the top amongst those who cannot protect her self for crime of rape robbery and murder and tyrannical government, like in Venezuela!

    Cloony’s—two nuts in the same pea pod!

  • Gary Gautreau says:

    If she thinks guns are the reason people are killed, then outlaw knives,automobiles,baseball bats,scissorsss,I could go on and on.

  • Evangeline says:

    I remember him commanding us to take in refugees that were proving to be extremely hostile and dangerous while he and his family hid in their wall protected Italian villa.

  • Rae says:

    People kill people everyday with their hands! Guns sit in corners and collect dust, it takes a person to pick it up aim and pull the trigger.

    There are 100’s of thousands of legal gun owners in the US an army’s worth in fact and they kill NO ONE. They may defend you or themselves and their families, it is illegal gun owners that are the ones that give all of the other legal owners a bad name AND there is no way to stop them from getting their guns.

    As long as they don’t cross Hillary they’ll be safe. She’s just as evil if not more than Isis.

  • Richard says:

    Sad to see such beautiful, accomplished people with such shallow thinking. I’ve studied politics and history longer than they’ve studied acting or law, so excuse me if I keep my own counsel on this issue. Sorry to hear their children being menaced by Islamist radicals. Good luck trying to protect them without armed security!

  • Gayle says:

    I can bet you their family is being guarded by security with guns! They are hypocrites and think they are better than other people wanting guns to protect their families! Crap on them and what they think!

  • Joel A Tompkins says:

    If it wasn’t for the fact that this whole school shooting thing happened as a result of the democrats using it and causing it to happen . As False flags to try and take away our rights . I would agree something needs to be done . But it is true that all of these shooting were caused by them . There is proof and it will be coming to light soon .

  • C. L. Cake says:

    They should never be able to purchase a firearm under ANY conditions. Let the idiots spend their milloions on armed security if they want to.

  • Maurice says:

    “The fact that no adults will speak on the stage in D.C. is a powerful message to the world that ” adults aren’t as stupid as these 2???

  • Ronald Gunn says:

    Again, I have never seen a gun pick itself up, load itself, point itself and pull it’s own trigger. If a person wants to kill someone they don’t need guns yo do it. They can use any kind of tools, run them down with automobiles, Through them out of windows in high rise buildings, etc, What do we do, band everything that could kill a person? The fact is, someone has to pick this item up to use it to kill someone.

  • fred H SMITH says:

    make sure their bodyguards are not armed with anything that could be used as a weapon

  • Ron Brooks says:

    There is nothing noble about that retarded lawsuit. They are using the courts, and the alleged trafficking of a woman to make more money & stay in the spotlight, nothing more. Anyone with a small amount of intelligence & common sense knows it is a waste of time to sue a terrorist group for their actions, how do they plan to collect? You don’t defeat them with judges, you do it with guns dipshit. Notice they filed it in French court, panzy central. Georgie boy should stick to making bad movies.

  • Lee Price says:

    By the way, why did they move back to America? They should have stayed in France or where ever guns are outlawed. Oh, that right, it’s too dangerous there. That’s why they moved back. I do not wish any harm to their innocent children, but that 1/2 million to the pro gun control group to make him a “proud American again” is just a fancy way of saying a tax write off. George is a has been to America. These liberal elitist Hollywood wanna be’s are so stuck on themselves, that if they really had to survive in the real world, they would not be. Most of the people that are their ardent “followers”, or pay to watch their crap, are more than a few cards short on the deck.
