The hypocrisy is strong with this one. It’s a case of do as Hollywood celebrities say, not as they do. Actress Alyssa Milano attended an anti-NRA protest in downtown Dallas today — and she did it surrounded by armed guards.
This is Will Haraway a CCW @nra member. He asked @Alyssa_Milano’s security if he was armed (he was) and then asked Alyssa about it. Here’s what happened. (She comes to talk to him after this and I will post that longer video shortly). pic.twitter.com/qMsq6rbzDd

In video captured by Ben Howe, NRA member Will Haraway asked Milano’s security if he was armed and the man clearly wasn’t amused by the question.
“I’m going to ask you to leave,” the guard said repeatedly, physically backing Haraway up by getting in his face.
“How far do I have to go?” Haraway asked.
“I’m going to need you on the sidewalk,” the agent responded.
“Hypocrite! Alyssa you’re a hypocrite! You have armed security here!” an observer yelled.
Milano’s friends, meanwhile, had no problem denouncing guns while benefiting from her special protected status.
I will change the world. Will you help me? No other family should have to ever experience my nightmare. Not one more gun death. Not one more broken hearted family. NOT. ONE. MORE. #NoRA @NoRA4USA @Alyssa_Milano pic.twitter.com/WGV23zL3YW

Milano then took to Twitter and stated, “For the record, my personal bodyguard was not armed.”
For the record, my personal bodyguard was not armed.
I had no control over what the Dallas PD and event coordinators planned to protect me.
I guess much like the gun lobby had no control over the secret service banning guns at the gun convention.

That’s some crazy printing for someone not armed… pic.twitter.com/zzhoWhOMQC

So he was armed security then.
This was event security, not my bodyguard. But regardless, this security guy has had training and passed a background check. These are the common sense gun reform policies we are fighting for for everyone.
Can’t wait to see the unedited longer video. https://t.co/tHREzjnsZH
