Jay Leno To Perform At ‘The SHOT Show’ Just One Month After Newtown Anniversary
On Tuesday Jan. 20th — 37 days after the second anniversary of the deaths of 20 six-year-olds inside Sandy Hook Elementary School — Jay Leno will be performing at the 2015 “SHOT Show” State of the Industry Dinner in Las Vegas.
[su_center_ad]The private dinner is organized by the Newtown, Connecticut based “National Shooting Sports Foundation,” and lucky you can book a table for ten for a mere $1,250 each to show your appreciation to the gun industry. For reals.
Those attending with be “treated to an evening recognizing the important accomplishments” of the gun industry.
I know that you’re as excited as I am, after all, the gun industry has brought us so much joy.
The Newtown Action Alliance is calling on Leno to cancel his appearance. They describe how the NSSF has done exactly nothing to reach out to the victims of Newtown despite being in the same town.
NSSK President Steve Sanetti has, however, referred to the families working for gun reform as reacting “emotionally” and irrationally because they are “angry” and “fearful.”
IKR? Silly puny humans acting all human-y! Instead of concerning themselves with making buckets and buckets of cash for the gun industry, those working for gun reform are simply interested in keeping kids alive. How stupid. Stop being so “emotional” over dead children. Pfft!
“His comedy touches on topics for audiences of all ages,” the announcement reads.
Hey Jay, did you hear the one about 20 kids being shot to death?
Moms Demand Action heard that one and they are not amused.
Is it a money thing? That’s doubtful.
Or he could just get back into one of his fancy cars, cancel the event, and go back home.
It’s not too late to change your mind, Jay.
