From Truth in Media:
Los Angeles, CA — While interviewing NRA TV host Colion Noir on his podcast the Joe Rogan Experience, the two discussed the the anti-gun “left wing” Hollywood elite that make millions to billions of dollars on movies that often feature a heavy dose of gun violence. Rogan said that many of the same “liberal actors” publicly rebuking gun violence and advocating for gun control are protected by people carrying guns and wearing flak jackets.
This country has a mental health problem disguised as a gun problem and a tyranny problem disguised as a security problem.

After Noir finished discussing gun-free zones, Rogan asked Noir what he thought about arming teachers, prompting Noir to explain that “anything we hold valuable in this country is protected with guns.”
Rogan responded to Noir’s commentary by calling out Hollywood:
No one is more anti-gun than Hollywood. When you hear about any sort of crime or gun violence, the left-wing people in Hollywood are the most vocal, the most virtue-signaling, the quickest to jump on their pedestal. Meanwhile, what percentage of their f***ing movies involve gun violence? And if you look at the Academy Awards, did you see the security at the Academy Awards? You see all these left-leaning liberal actors being protected by people with flak jackets on. Carrying guns with fingers outside the triggers. I mean, dogs? It’s crazy.
Rogan, a strong civil libertarian, is no stranger to controversy as he is known for his refusal to comport to political correctness and has vocally waded into public discussion surrounding guns, mental health, liberty, tyranny and more on numerous previous occasions.
