Los Angeles, CA — While interviewing NRA TV host Colion Noir on his podcast the Joe Rogan Experience, the two discussed the the anti-gun “left-wing” Hollywood elite that make millions to billions of dollars on movies that often feature a heavy dose of gun violence. Rogan said that many of the same “liberal actors” publicly rebuking gun violence and advocating for gun control are protected by people carrying guns and wearing flak jackets.
After Noir finished discussing gun-free zones, Rogan asked Noir what he thought about arming teachers, prompting Noir to explain that “anything we hold valuable in this country is protected with guns.”
Rogan responded to Noir’s commentary by calling out Hollywood:
No one is more anti-gun than Hollywood. When you hear about any sort of crime or gun violence, the left-wing people in Hollywood are the most vocal, the most virtue-signaling, the quickest to jump on their pedestal. Meanwhile, what percentage of their f***ing movies involve gun violence? And if you look at the Academy Awards, did you see the security at the Academy Awards? You see all these left-leaning liberal actors being protected by people with flak jackets on. Carrying guns with fingers outside the triggers. I mean, dogs? It’s crazy.
Rogan, a strong civil libertarian, is no stranger to controversy as he is known for his refusal to comport to political correctness and has vocally waded into public discussion surrounding guns, mental health, liberty, tyranny and more on numerous previous occasions.
This country has a mental health problem disguised as a gun problem and a tyranny problem disguised as a security problem.

During a podcast in 2016, Rogan gave his thoughts on gun control as it relates to the Second Amendment, noting that it largely relates to government tyranny, not crime, stating:
“The whole point of the law is you can’t let some tyrannical dictator decide who can and can’t armed. Because at the end of the day, what we really have to worry about as much as crime, is we have to worry about the government turning into a crime (sic).”
“An armed militia is in the possibility that it all goes wrong. That’s what it’s for. It’s not for when everything is going right, it’s for when it all goes wrong. To deny the possibility that it could all go wrong, to me, you’re lying. You’re lying. You’re pretending we’re better than we are.”
“To say that we’ve reached some utopian place where we don’t have to worry about the government turning into a tyranny – bull$#hit.”
