We have seen commercial after commercial of Hollywood actors slamming guns and gun owners and pushing for more gun control laws. But apparently they only want the general public to be defenseless.
The same guns they want to be banned are the ones that were used to protect them during the Golden Globes.
According to HollywoodReporter.com security was beefed up this year:
There was a major security presence this year.
In the wake of the recent Paris and San Bernardino terrorist attacks, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association wasn’t taking any chances. It moved the entry-point for those arriving at the Globes and the after-parties from the Wilshire Blvd. side of the Hilton to a Century City parking lot, where guests had to pass through security checks before boarding shuttles over to the top of the red carpet. The change did not go smoothly: some experienced waits of as long as two hours from arriving at the parking lot to arriving at the red carpet. FBI agents were among the law enforcement officers protecting the event, and at the Hilton there were numerous people wearing body armor and headsets patrolling the halls with AR-15 semi-automatic rifles.
And then there was this Tweet from award columnist Scott Feinberg who got a picture of one of the armed guards at the hotel:
The security inside the Beverly Hilton is right out of ZERO DARK THIRTY. Never seen anything like this before. pic.twitter.com/Fx3PTFVowo
