Matt Damon Dreams of Gun Confiscation in America

There is seemingly no end to the extent to which anti-gun people and groups will lie about guns and gun owners. Post links to articles by these masters of prevarication here.

We all should stop paying to watch these peoples' movies, tv shows, etc - whether in the theater or dvd or pay per view.

Generally true.......but the analogy falls on its face specifically with Damon. Matt Damon is the co-writer with Ben Affleck of "Good Will Hunting" (1997) and "Gerry" (2002), and with John Krasinski he cowrote the screenplay for "Promised Land (2012). The first of those three titles was a HUGE hit. I agree that what you said is generally true about a lot of the noisy anti-gun pie-holes in Hollwood, but don't make the mistake of failing to respect the intelligence of every one of your enemy's. Yes, a lot of them are dolts, but not all of them are. Some are very smart.......but very wrong. I don't think Obama is a stupid person. I think he is "gifted" with a malevolent intelligence. The problem is that his intelligence is unbridled by a moral center. With Matt Damon, he's actually a pretty smart guy. He just lacks an appreciation of individual liberty. He lacks that appreciation because he has been a pretty rich guy for a long time now, and his wealth has insulated him from the consequences of liberty's loss, so he is not upset by the idea of squashing it for others. Whenever he feels he needs protection, he does like any good liberal, and he just hires someone to get their hands dirty for him.

However, if you have paid attention to the previous Borne Movies, Matt Damon's character will often shun guns in the movie. Since he is on the run traveling by air from city to city he cannot have a gun since he must go through the airport security just like everyone else. (he is a common person rather than an elite) He generally gets his guns from his opponents, CIA agents, police officers, and bad guys, who he expertly disarms.

If he is not in immediate danger he often sets the gun down and leaves it behind.

So if you go and see his new movie, look for this. It will make you much more cautious about keeping a hold of the gun you have before it is snatched away by Matt Damon.


Sounds like something added to the screenplay by liberal Hollywood writers. don't remember Bourne's aversion to guns in the books. Maybe Damon had them add it.

I agree, there are some very intelligent people who are actors/writers/directors in Hollywood. There are intelligent people in several walks of life who I disagree with. I will defend with my life, their right to speak their mind and express their opinions. I just wish that the general populace would stop worshiping at the alter of entertainment, and stop giving more weight to the opinions of those who they see on the big screen, as if they have more insight into the lives of everyday people, when they live in secluded affluent areas, with assistants to do the drudge work, and have sequestered themselves so far away from the real world. I have been a fan of Matt Damon's work as an actor and screen writer, I still have no issue with his work. I am a fan of several people who I disagree with their lifestyle choices, and their opinions, I just don't give their views any more credence than I do anyone else's.

I watched the first movie...it was so far from the book, it was pathetic so I have not given the rest of them a glance. When they changed the premise in the first book that much, they couldn't help but destroy the continuity in the following movies...

Damon may be one of those exceptions as far as intelligence. Does not mean he has a basic understanding of the constitution or that he has ever read it. If he actually wishes that guns in America should be confiscated I think that defines him as being stupid.

In the newest Bourne trailer for pending release, the first view of Damon shows him with a firearm.

He is a wasted piece of flesh wasting valuable oxygen.

Lena Dunham calls for defacing gun on Jason Borne movie poster.
