Boy George: The Oscar Pistorius story is a reason not to own a gun

His point is simple: If Pistorius hadn’t had a gun, he wouldn’t have shot his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

But South Africa is a violent place, as Boy George knows:

Even Boy George’s readers, probably not a conservative lot, understand that law-abiding South African residents can’t rely on the police for protection.

    And Boy George is the reason not to allow little boys to play with little girl toys.

    Why do all these HAS BEENS think their opions matter?

      Twitchy thinks they matter, which is why they post them here.

        It’s useful to note how the politics of the progressive left are so idiotic and insane that even washed-up, drug-addled, has-been drag queens support them.

        • Ronald

          I submit that the real purpose is to further the divisiveness that is plaguing this country. Twitchy is stirring the pot to stimulate outrage, and even hatred, by calling attention to poor and unseemly behaviour by the worst elements of the left. Ironically, the response by many Twitchy readers often mirrors that same bad behaviour!

          That said, there are some really important issues that need to be addressed and fixed, but Twitchy doesn’t encourage problem solving, they encourage entrenchment. Just read through some of the comments and see the proof for yourself. Why don’t they call attention to people that are reasonable? Why don’t they showcase the common ground? Instead they spread the message that there is no common ground. That is a dangerous fallacy that leads to division.

          As a moderate republican, I find it hard to stomach.

    OJ Simpson wrote a book on how to kill without a gun.

      The movie is on hold though. Too much ended up on the cutting room floor and Danny Glover didn’t quite fit the role they had for him.

      I now denounce myself.

    Good reason not to own a firearm if you have no self control of yourself and anger issues. Good thing 99.99% of firearms owners do not have his issues.

    NO, the OP story is another reason why young women need to be sure just what kind of person the guy they are dating is. And stop falling “in love” at the drop of the hat, then not getting out of the relationship when they should have. Her death is not her fault, but too many young women do not run from the signs. My daughters are very tired of my preaching, but my husband and I have said many times, if the guy’s a jerk, we will do everything we can to remove you from his presence.

    No doubt, Boy George would feel so much better if Oscar had stabbed or strangled or smothered her.

  • ceemack

    Yeah. Sure. I’m going to take advice on self-defense from …Boy George???

    • lainer51

      why not? perhaps you could swat them to death

    When is this twerp going to morph into MAN George? Talk about your extended adolescence…

    A gun would of prevented this…..Boy George was today sentenced to 15 months in jail for falsely imprisoning a male escort by handcuffing him to a wall and beating him with a metal chain. Passing sentence at Snaresbrook crown court, east London, Judge David Radford said the singer’s offence was “so serious that only an immediate sentence of imprisonment can be justified”.

  • Maxx

    There are 300 million firearms in this country and to date, not one has ever spent a night in jail nor been read its Miranda rights.

    File this tool away as just another idiot, only in this case a 50-something male who wears more makeup than Eva Longoria.

    So a subject of and pretender to the Queen is relevant how in the affairs of the United States?

    • NRPax

      I blame Piers Morgan. He’s the one who got Brits thinking that Americans care about their views on self defense.

      • Roto

        Yea us Americans could kick them… er, umm boot them to death with our soccer… no, fútbol… damn it… football cleats… er, umm shoes… aww to hell with Piers… :-)

    The BoyGeorge story is another reason not to be a Boy — or a George…

    Funny thing is the whole Oscar Pistorius case may or may not be self defense. Alledgedly a bloody cricket bat was found and the womans skull was crushed; supposedly the police had answered several calls of domestic violence at their residence. So Boy Georges comments are full of fail, if any of these details are true then Reeva Steenkamp could have benefited from owning a gun.
