Hollywood actress Alyssa Milano, whose credits include roles in Who’s the Boss? and Charmed, appeared at an anti-NRA rally in Dallas yesterday.
As unremarkable as that is, her appearance was notable because Milano showed up at the rally flanked by armed bodyguards.
Who shows up at an anti-gun rally protected by people carrying guns?
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.
Even if she heard it, Milano would have probably been unmoved.
As I wrote yesterday about Greens who feel they have a “moral license” to pollute because of their virtuous global warming advocacy, many Hollywood liberals believe that their exalted position makes them immune to normal criticism due to holding the “correct” position on any given issue.
Milano feels comfortable enough with her entitlement to offer political advice:

Perhaps the best thing to do is just point a finger at Milano and laugh.
