Feeling a bit outgunned, Liam?

| January 18, 2015

Last week I wrote here about actor Liam Neeson’s incredible, yet typically liberal, hypocrisy in condemning widespread American gun ownership while he himself makes millions starring in movies depicting extreme gun violence, most of it wrought by his character. Well, Liam’s getting his wish, at least in his own particular situation. The company that furnished the weapons used in the series of Taken films, PARA USA, has decided it will no longer furnish firearms for any movie in which Neeson appears. Here’s the article from Daily Caller reporting their announcement:

PARA USA regrets its decision to provide firearms for use in the film “Taken 3.” While the film itself is entertaining, comments made by its Irish-born star during press junkets reflect a cultural and factual ignorance that undermines support of the Second Amendment and American liberties. We will no longer provide firearms for use in films starring Liam Neeson and ask that our friends and associates in Hollywood refrain from associating our brand and products with his projects. Further we encourage our partners and friends in the firearms industry to do the same.

Neeson’s stupidity in badmouthing his primary audience is just another example of how all those supposedly smart people in Hollywood just don’t get it, as evidenced by the huge opening success of the film American Sniper this weekend. Let’s hope the firearms industry better understands their own market and complies with the request of PARA USA.

    When you live in a progressive bubble, you seem to think the great unwashed give a rats ass what your opinion is

    It’s about time, more companies need to step up their game too.
    The Second Amendment only affirms our right to kieep and bear arms…

    Gee, he’s such a mediocre slug that if he can’t get a gig with a gun, he’ll actually have to act.

    That should shorten his questionable career.

  4. B Woodman says:

    Too bad this type of action (Para against Liam) didn’t start back when Stallone was spouting the same gun grabbing rhetoric, back when comedian Phil Hartman was shot by his off-her-meds ex wife. Just think how Hollywierd might be different. As it is, I now have another Libtard to add to my ever-growing list of “will not watch”. When will these puppets learn to hit their marks, speak the lines that have been scripted for them, and otherwise just shut up, or “no opinion”. Give me back the glory Hollywood days of the 30s-40s-50s.

  5. UpNorth says:

    Once again, a Hollyweird “star” decides that the best business model is to offend that part of his audience that actually has disposable income to spend on their leisure pursuits.

    I am the proud owner of a Para 1911 Expert Commander. I like the feel and quality of it and it functions as it should for a few hundred dollars less than the other big name 1911s. That they take a stand like this just makes me want to get another one.

      I’ve owned a Tach-Four for ten years now. Wanted one of their LDAs since meeting Todd Jarrett a few years earlier, and that one is a great carry piece. On a revolver kick for now, but Para will definitely be on my list the next time I look for a semi-auto.

    I just watched Denzel in “The Equalizer” – he makes Neeson look like a little girl.

    • jonp says:

      Boy, that’s no lie. Denzel is one of the best actors out there and played that perfect.
      If you liked that try keeanu reeves in John Wyk. Never thought much of him but his performance in that one was very underated.

    Next purchase will be a PARA USA … Going to web site to select weapon now.

    • E-6 type, 1 ea says:

      Yeah, I’m looking at their stuff, and they’re pretty proud of it, but I think I might pick up one of their compact .45’s.

  9. MadMan says:

    Lets boycott his liberal ass like we did Jim Carey , the Dixie chicks , ect. . Way to alienate your audience , Douche Bag !

  10. streetsweeper says:

    Liam Neesom? Never heard of her.

  11. Fsckity-Fsck says:

    They are making a third “Taken”?

    The only people taken in his movies are those who paid for the movie tickets.

    Bummer. I really enjoyed the first two Taken movies. This Friday is my 16th anniversary and my wife and I had plans to see Taken 3. I guess we’ll switch it up to American Sniper instead. I hate that the list of actors I’ll pay to see keeps getting shorter and shorter.
