Checking It Twice

In Hollywood, being blacklisted is usually the stuff from which nightmares are made and careers are shattered. But now the tables have turned and it’s apparently in to be out.

The National Rifle Association has posted a list of American companies, celebrities and news organizations that it thinks are supporting anti-gun policies.

There’s a staggeringly long tally of mega-stars on it, from Oprah Winfrey to Bruce Springsteen. And now more celebs are clamoring to be included.

Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman was upset that he wasn’t on the registry, so he wrote to the NRA and asked to be listed.

“As a supporter of comprehensive anti-gun safety measures, I was deeply disappointed when I discovered my name was not on the list,” he wrote.

And it’s basically mission accomplished for Hoffman, whose name can now be seen in the “H” section along with Helen Hunt and Whitney Houston.

At first, the agency said it hadn’t come up with any sort of a blacklist, but was just explaining to members what people and groups were against the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment on the right to bear arms.

But last week, National Rifle Association Executive Vice-President Wayne LaPierre said: “Our members don't want to buy their songs, don't want to go to their movies, don't want to support their careers,” about those on the now infamous tally.


Here’s the celebrity component of the NRA list in question. According to its site, “The following celebrities and national figures have lent their name and notoriety to anti-gun causes, speaking out for anti-gun legislation and providing a voice for anti-gun organizations.”
