IT MUST be love. SEAN PENN has credited new flame CHARLIZE THERON with convincing him to give up his 60-strong gun collection.

The 53-year-old has been amassing the arsenal for years but now has revealed the guns will be decommissioned and made into a sculpture by artist Jeff Koons with all profits going to hisHelp Haiti Home Foundation.
Charlize’s influence over Penn’s decision is particularly poignant given that her mother shot dead her alcoholic father in 1991 following years of abuse, in what was deemed a lawful killing.

  1. So Theron's mother used a gun to defend herself from a long term abusive partner which is determined by police to be a justified defensive shooting, and she considers it to be the gun's fault?

    I've found at least one account of the incident mentioning that her mother also shot her uncle in the same incident.

    Gerda told police her drunk and aggressive husband had threatened to shoot her and Charlize.

    "I simply started firing at him. I don't know how many times. I saw him fall. When I turned around I saw his brother behind me and instinctively I fired another shot in his direction. His brother fell down."

    1. From that little glimpse, it sounds surprising she wasn't charged. But, I'd hate to jump to conclusions too quickly.

  2. That's an idiotic decision, especially given Hollywood relationships. What happens in six months when they've broken up and he regrets his decision?

    By the way, Penn has had a carry license, despite several arrests for violence, including domestic violence. It's good to be a celebrity, apparently.

    3. Thanks for that link. I just posted it along with a more recent breakdown. One thing it shows is your crying, whining complaint about only celebs getting permits could only possible apply in a few counties. In the rest it's pretty much business as usual.

    4. Your sneering aside, it's well known that in California, getting a carry license depends on where you live. If you're in the good counties, the sheriffs are more likely to issue, though still not as willingly as in good states. But did you notice San Francisco? No licenses. And look at Los Angeles and Orange counties--together they have populations greater than many states, but the number of licenses is tiny.

    5. So the lying criminal coward now says the local authorities are not allowed to make decisions about their own communities. The law (something you reject) says they have the authority to judge who gets and who doesn't. Live with it criminal.

      Delete
    6. In California, state law gives local authorities discretion to determine their own policy for issuing permits. Some counties are restrictive, some are de facto shall issue. The majority of states have either shall issue permit systems or no permit required at all. Live with that.

    7. Then Anonymous, how about we pass a law banning you from posting comments on the Internet. Would you live with that?

      Delete
    8. Yes, the true patriot. Rights for those who fit your idea of a right, which have been proven not only wrong, but criminal. You know, your own words said revenge is justice and beating people up is acceptable.

      Delete
    9. Anonymous, you expect me to live with violations of my rights, but you object when someone proposes violating your rights. The thing is that I don't want to violate any rights.

      But tell us something: Are you yet old enough even to drive? You argue like a tween. Your standard line being, "I know you are, but what am I?"

      Delete
    10. "tween"
      I argue against proven liars like you

  3. I read nowhere in the article the she (Charlize) considered the shooting "the guns fault."
    Where did you get that from?

      “Koons will decommission and render inactive all of my cowardly killing machines.”

      It certainly seems like an easier linking than Laci's Freudian manifestations.

    2. I see, you just made it up. Thanks for clearing that up.

    3. No, it doesn't sound like blaming the gun. What probably happened is she convinced him that guns are involved in more harm than good and that giving them up is the smart move. That's not blaming the gun, unless you want to belittle the person making the informed decision to do without them.

    4. Informed decisions aren't made on the basis of false information.

      Delete
    5. What false information?

      Delete
    6. The claim that guns are more harm than good.

      Delete
    7. Depends on what you consider harm. Doesn't it?

      Delete
    8. Just make shit up like SS, TS, and the site lying coward.

      Delete
    9. Harm in this case means death or injury.

      Delete
    10. So the surviving children of shootings have had no harm dune to them because they were not actually shot? Please check the definitions of harm.

      Delete
    11. Um, Anonymous, that would be covered under the category of, oh, let's see, death.

      Delete
    12. These children didn't die, but they were harmed. Thanks for proving again what an ass hole lying criminal coward you are.

  4. Haiti would be a lot better off if he would just sell the collection to a home that wants them. I bet he has some nice guns and they'd be more valuable before they get melted down.

  5. If Charlize Theron would take her clothes off, she could convince me of just about anything.

  6. Hey MikeB, isn't Sean Penn a prohibited person? He plead guilty to domestic abuse and therefore is not able to legally own any guns.

    Will you call for his arrest and prosecution?
