Harvey Weinstein: I'm Working on Movie With Meryl Streep to Destroy the NRA
“I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,” he said on the Howard Stern Show.
“I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this head-on. And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.”
He went on to say that he doesn't believe "we need guns in this country," and hopes that after people see the planned feature film they will never again want to invest in gun stocks.
Martha MacCallum discussed the controversial claims with Fox News contributor Jehmu Greene and radio host Mike Slater, who immediately called out hypocrisy on the part of Weinstein and other Hollywood gun control advocates.
"You mentioned 'Kill Bill: Volume 3.' He also has a new movie coming out called 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.' Harvey and his friends have built their careers on making incredibly violent movies and they have contributed to this desensitizing to violence in America. Whether it's gun violence or knockout game violence and everything in between," said Slater.
Greene, however, criticized the NRA for "using responsible gun owners" so that they can protect gun manufacturers and oppose "common sense" gun control laws.
Martha noted that many school shootings, including Sandy Hook, are halted when the shooter sees someone else with a gun, ready to confront them.
Green countered by claiming that responsible gun owners agree that there is no need to own an AR-15 for self-defense or for hunting.
Slater ended by voicing his support for "strengthening the NRA and gun safety classes," while trying to address the root causes of gun violence.
