The reason Hollywood producers are not beating down Kelly Carlson's door has nothing to do with her acting bona fides. It's because she decided to purchase a gun for self-defense. Fox and Friends resorts to the overplayed ruse that Hollywood is so anti-gun, they will punish anyone who is pro-gun. That might be a valid premise, except for the fact that it is not reality-based.
Celebrities like Robert DeNiro, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie are gun owners. Their affinity for guns does not limit their job prospects as actors. Carlson is looking for a scapegoat for her dismal acting career. So Carlson does what any ailing, conservative-leaning star does: they turn to Faux News to cry that they are persecuted by the liberal elite because they love that Second Amendment.
I like how Fox 'News' pretends the Reagan Administration, along with Orrin Hatch (R-UT) had nothing to do with re-defining the amendment to increase the profit margin of the NRA, it was our Founding Fathers who wanted guns a-blazing for all Americans. They resurrected the obsolete amendment to increase sales for the gun lobby and Fox 'News' helps them whenever possible.
The model/actress recently spoke with TheBlaze Radio about the serious “security breach” at her home that inspired her to purchase a gun and spend the time and money to learn how to properly use a firearm.
The frightening stalking episode also became the focus of a new episode of the Outdoor Channel’s, “NRA All Access.” Carlson talks openly about the incident as well as the fact that her uncle was killed, execution style, during a gas station robbery in Minnesota.
Carlson has succumbed to the paranoia stoked by the folks at Breitbart.com. She made an appearance in September, 2014 at the National Press Club via Skype
to raise awareness of the danger posed by a potential attack on America’s power grid — and how little authorities do to protect this precious element of our infrastructure.
She claims today on Fox that she was being stalked by a very organized group that was disabling her surveillance system and gawd knows what else.
A plus to her seeking protection, Carlson found love, and eventually married her ex-military, bodyguard. I'm guessing his influence has made her very concerned with the same border security and potential infrastructure security breaches that bother so many right-wing conspiracy theorists. She knows that Fox and Friends is the ideal place to garner sympathy for a woman who believes that Hollywood is biased when it comes to gun ownership.
She is a very proud firearms enthusiast. Why not exploit her security fears by earning press with the help of the NRA? At least she knows the viewers of the sensationalized infotainment channel will be with her.
