Mark Wahlberg of "Shooter" and "Lone Survivor"

Link to an article about Mr. Wahlberg. I knew he'd been convicted of a felony and couldn't own firearms, but had never thought of this....

Some of his role have given him training in firing and handling a firearm. Has he violated the terms of his punishment in going through this training?

    It's actually not that hard in most cases and most states to get your rights reinstated. Many non-violent felony convictions are automatically expunged from your record after a certain period of time, especially if committed as a juvenile like Mr. Wahlbergs was. Of course, for the most part LEO's mainly just used that as a tack on crime to hold and put pressure on criminals they catch doing, or potentially about to do other bad things. Here's a NYT article complaining about how easy it is for felons to get their rights reinstated:

    I thought I read somewhere that Donnie Wahlberg is also anti gun, yet he plays a Det. in Blue Bloods weekly. So many Actor's and Actresses that are anti gun make their living in movies using firearms, what Hypocrite's.

    I don't know about the "People's Republic of Mass." but I'm thinkin' and maybe I need to research it before I open my mouth, but I'll go out on a limb here and say I "THINK" in Texas if you are convicted of a "VIOLENT" crime, you may not ever can get those rights back.

    Wow! If Wahlbergs felony wasn't a violent one, I'd sure like to know what is. Minor or not, there's no way he should get any rights reinstated. I wonder if he votes?

    He just spews his liberal D baggery into impressionable young minds...voting by proxy.

    He attacked 2 Vietnamese men on two separate instances while yelling racial epithets, leaving one man blind. He also threw rocks and yelled racial insults at some black schoolchildren multiple times.

    On a completely different note, the new A&E show "Wahlburgers" premiered tonight, AFTER Duck Dynasty, 2 minutes into the show and to me it is a blatant commercial for their restaurant chain, piggy backing on Duck Dynasty.

    Just rambling here....I've noticed that a lot of the anti-gun celebrities are East-Coasters. Could it be that their lack of exposure to firearms at an early age and the places they were brought up have a lot to do with their sentiments? I mean...a kid brought up in New York, Boston, etc..how much exposure to guns as an everyday tool did they see?

    Don't forget legislation that keeps "good people" from having some of those firearms. If you're shown from an early age that only bad people carry some firearms, what do you think the adult mindset becomes?

    One thing I've noticed about Wahlberg's roles... if he's carrying a gun he's generally either a criminal or a cop/LEO. Wonder if HE is trying to give us some kinda message?

    David Gregory's stunt of showing that 30 round mag on TV went unpunished. They'll never punish high profile people.
