Anti-gun Hollywood will be enjoying armed security similar to what the President of the United States receives during tonight’s Oscars.
Music legend Charlie Daniels called out the hypocrisy on Twitter:
I would imagine that there will be a lot said about gun control at the Oscars tonight
How about they start their gun control by removing all event and private security from the site, disarm the private body guards and leave the “elite” to handle the streets of LA on their own,

Many supported Daniels with responses.
Hard not to notice the most vocal for gun control live in security, & can afford to hire armed security. They never consider that they won’t be protected. The common man has to be his own security. When U live rural, as I do, police response time can be hrs.

Hollywood and common sense just don’t go together. They can not see their own hypocrisy. They are blind and can not see, they are deaf and can not hear, their hearts are hardened to truth.

Hollywood Reporter reported that organizers expect about 735 fan passes will be issued for Sunday’s extravaganza where the 33-feet-wide red carpet will stretch across 900 feet.
When it comes to divulging plans to protect Oscar-goers, the Los Angeles Police Department plays it close to the vest — or perhaps more literally its flack jacket. Suffice it to say, a huge chunk of the department’s 10,072 sworn officers will be on hand Sunday to enforce their largely secretive security measures.
In fact, says one officer, it will be a “mid-to-max deployment day” similar to when a U.S. president visits Los Angeles, a situation usually calling for some heavy weaponry and lots of overtime.
“We will deploy enough officers to ensure the safety of all the citizens and Oscar attendees. We hope for the best and are prepared for the worst,” an LAPD spokesperson tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Pro-gun control Hollywood celebrities attending Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony will enjoy security “similar to when a U.S. president visits” Los Angeles, according to law enforcement.
The Hollywood Reporter notes that “a huge chunk of the [Los Angeles Police Department’s] 10,072 sworn officers will be on hand” for the Oscars. Moreover, they spoke to an officer who indicated Sunday will be a “mid-to-max deployment day” involving protocols similar to those used when presidents visit.
An LAPD spokesperson said, “We will deploy enough officers to ensure the safety of all the citizens and Oscar attendees. We hope for the best and are prepared for the worst.”
On March 4, 2018, Breitbart News reported LAPD’s deployment of “500 officers to wrap the Dolby Theatre in multiple barriers of armed security for the [2018 Oscars].”
The security for the 2018 Oscars included “road closures to prevent people breaching a security perimeter made up of a wall of ten-foot gates and barricades, FBI agents, and firefighters.” And police helicopters circled above the Dolby Theater while private security guards were stationed inside.
Yet even as they benefited from good guys with guns, the anti-gun stalwarts in Hollywood wore their pro-gun control accessories to the high-profile event. Prior to the 2018 Oscars, several celebrities made clear their “plan to wear orange lapel pins on the red carpet and during tonight’s ceremony in support of gun control and the Michael Bloomberg-founded gun control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety.”
We witnessed a similar situation at the 2016 Oscars, when celebrities wore gun control bracelets while surrounded by massive amounts of armed security.
Such behavior sends the message that a celebrity life is worth more than the life of a farmer in middle America; that guns for the commoner need to be controlled and limited but armed protection on par with presidential protection is justified for Hollywood.
