“Starbuck” Gun Tweet Loses Half Her Following

A gun tweet from Battlestar Galactica actress Katee Sackhoff resulting in her losing half of her following on Twitter, when after seeing a report about a boy four-years-old who accidentally shot his father after a loaded gun was left unattended at the house of a friend.

Sackhoff's gun sin? After the incident she tweeted this: “Please practice gun safety. This is horrible!”

The bizarre response was because Sackhoff called for gun safety rather than gun control.

Her response to her opponents was this concerning the silly call for no guns: “Never gonna happen in the US. Proper gun safety is a necessity though.”

Before her tweet, Sackhoff had just under 200,000 followers. After the tweet, it dropped to about 98,000, although it rebounded later to over 119,000.

This is great for Sackhoff, as she was shown to be wise, bold and levelheaded, while her detractors looked extremely juvenile in comparison. To think that a call for gun safety would cause this only shows the lack of mental comprehension by gun control opponents. It was a great rebuke to them, largely self-inflicted.
