'Seinfeld' star Jason Alexander unleashes passionate 1,700 word tweet calling for gun control in wake of Colorado shooting

'Seinfeld' star Jason Alexander unleashes passionate 1,700 word tweet calling for gun control in wake of Colorado shooting

TV's legendary George Costanza takes to the web after Aurora, Colorado shooting


There was no yada-yada at all when “Seinfeld” star Jason Alexander’s took to Twitter with an impassioned — and certainly more than 140-character — call for a ban on assault-style weapons.

Alexander, in a message to his 135,725 followers, said the movie theater rampage that left 12 dead in Colorado convinced him to write the posting that drew both applause and insults.

“These are the weapons that maniacs acquire to wreak murder and mayhem on innocents,” Alexander wrote in the piece, which went up on Sunday. “They are not the same as handguns to help homeowners protect themselves from intruders.

Why is this in the Gold & Silver forum?

Who cares anyway..

He was not famous for his brains...

he was famous for some one else s wits.. that he executed very well..

as an actor as he was...

Beats kramers rant

The real threat of the gun control discussion is that people will believe there is a difference between the two parties.




Is this fool talking @ DRONES?

“These are the weapons that maniacs acquire to wreak murder and mayhem on innocents,” J.A.
He is talking about Obama and his drones, right?
...Or is he mad that Obama sold AK's to Mexican drug lords? (Fast & Furious)
Hard to tell. If only I had the brilliant insight that comes with being an actor

I wonder how the millions of

I wonder how the millions of jews who were rounded up and marched into the gas chamber by their own government would feel about gun control if they could speak to us now. I suspect that if they had it to do over again they would all buy semiautomatic weapons and lots of ammo and not march into the gas chamber obediantly like a bunch of sheep. How can anyone be in favor of gun control if they know anything about history.

Another Hollywood

change agent.
So tiresome. It IS awfully nice of Jason Alexander (who can well afford private security and not trouble himself with worrying about self defense) to out himself so I can add him to my list of commies I will no longer support by watching his "work". I'm reading a lot more books these days!! And listening to more Kellie Clarkson.


These are the weapons that maniacs acquire to wreak murder and mayhem on innocents.

And new laws will prevent this? Show me some proof?

Chicago Murder Rate Rises Despite Gun Ban

Jason needs to read some Ron Paul:

Security and Self-Governance

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

How hard is it to understand...

...that you can't un-invent something. These firearms already exist. "Gun control" activities to limit them will only affect the law-abiding - meaning only various government entities and serious criminals will be armed with them, since black markets will always provide supply for those interested in a product or service.

And maybe it's just me - but I'd like the option to be comparably armed against any who wish me ill.

Why can't they grasp that laws only directly impact those who plan to obey them?

Handguns banned in England

A new study suggests the use of handguns in crime rose by 40% in the two years after the weapons were banned.


Jason who? Who cares? I never liked the show ever, and didn't

even see an entire episode.

I guess I didn't miss much after all. What an idiot.

this is hardly a surpise

gun control worked out so well for Jews in the past

Jason Alexander on gun control

I would suggest that Mr. Alexander visit Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership at jpfo.org and that he read what more the Rabbinic Director, Rabbi Bendory, has to say about Jews and gun control.

"Says the Torah (Exodus 20:13): Lo tirtzach!The Hebrew word used has a clear and unequivocal meaning: 'Do not murder.'

"Unfortunately, this verse is generally mistranslated as 'Do not kill.' But the Hebrew could not be more clear, and there is a world of difference between killing and murder.

"This is the Sixth Commandment. How many times have you heard 'Thou shalt not kill'? This mistranslation is etched upon the hearts and minds of both Jewish and Christian children and adults with pernicious results. Can we possibly estimate the numbers of lives that have been lost by foolish pacifism rather than righteous defense in the face of evil?" Rabbi Dovid Bendory

It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.

Someone needs to direct him

Someone needs to direct him to Germany under Hitler. They took the guns away and millions died because they couldn't protect themselves. Isn't he Jewish? Does he not remember the holocaust?
Maybe WWII wasn't a subject taught at whatever schools he attended.

Formerly rprevolutionist

you don't understand

Fascism can work, provided the right people (such as Obomni or Hitlery) are in power !

On the contrary

On the contrary.

I'm sure it was taught just the filtered sanitised Jewish version failing to mention the international Jewish community declaring war on Germany in 1933 or the Danzig massacre not to mention the Jewish Bolshevik revolution.

Luke 3:38
Isaiah 43:3-5

Anyone who promotes gun

Anyone who promotes gun control is a traitor to this country just as much as benedict arnold and is every bit as much an enemy of freedom as adolf hitler ever was.

Looks like since Seinfeld went off the air, he has a lot of time

on his thumbs.

Lot of Jewish Hollywood call for Gun Control because they care

about violence, but just love the fascism put out by the dictator in the White House. Oh I get it. Americans should.nt kill or harm Americans. But its just wonderful when the government does it.

Its funny how they are so upset for the loss of innocent human life but love it when its carried out by drones. Isnt this what the drones are doing to civilians in other countries, i.e. collateral damage.

Oh, Hollywood has nothing to say when Obama wants to unleash drones on the American people. They are cheering, fear mongering, dismissing Ron Paul, and donating hand over fist to the president. Love fascism much?

I believe use of the term

I believe use of the term "Jewish Hollywood" would be an example of collectivism or possibly just bigotry.

Does george know

That the automatic gun used was already illegal and that didn't stop him from acquiring it?

Does george know


I believe the long gun he had was an AR-15, a semi-automatic which is NOT illegal to purchase....yet. Full automatics are illegal.

All Rights Reserved, c 1791
RP 2012 and beyond....

That is because there are so

That is because there are so many loopholes in the gun control laws, not to mention so much negligence. The government doesn't have the teeth to do anything about companies that do not comply because of the NRA. Obama would be flayed alive if he did.

Somehow, other countries with gun control avoid these problems; bad guys don't get guns.

Plan for eliminating the national debt in 10-20 years:

Cause and effect are not clear at all

There are various reasons people own guns, and there are various reasons they use them. I live amidst a strong gun culture in Wisconsin, yet it has one of the lowest murder rates in the nation. I also lived in a strong gun culture in Missouri, and it had one of the highest murder rates in the country. New York has very low gun ownership (about 1/3 of Wisconsin's) but the murder rate is almost twice as high.

Gun ownership has NOTHING to do with the murder rate one way or the other.

Other countries with low ownership may have low murder rates, but one does not cause the other. The Swiss, for example, have very very high ownership, yet their murder rate is very very low.

GUN OWNERSHIP HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MURDER RATE. You must look to other factors for an explanation of violence. A huge factor in our country is the DRUG WAR.

Enforcing existing gun laws does nothing but impinge on on the freedom of people to buy and own a product. And it MAY result in the inability of people to respond to violence in a meaningful way.

Alot of people hated George and

he's probably paranoid that they want to shoot him.

He's a Hollywood liberal

What else would you expect?

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

Use of the term "Hollywood

Use of the term "Hollywood liberal" could also be construed as an example of collectivism as a means of demeaning and insulting others.

Here's a question for everyone, though. What about when you, I or Ron Paul call members of the GOP "Neo-Cons"? As I recall, the term neo-conservative was not a self-selected descriptor, it was an insult coined by the Socialist Michael Harrington (I looked up that last part)...

So, isn't use of the term "Neo-Con" an example of collectivist thinking or labeling individuals as a group of likeminded people in an effort to diminish them? I believe so. If it applies in one instance, it applies in all instances.
