This article includes spoilers from a recent episode of The Walking Dead.
According to at least one Hollywood actor, all you need to know about gun control, you can learn from 'The Walking Dead.'
Nick Searcy, who plays Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Art Mullen on the hit FX show "Justified," is an unapologetic conservative, and never shies away from his personal and political beliefs with his fans on Twitter. Like the character of Mullen, Searcy sports a wicked sense of humor, with a nearly-impenetrable logic that often confounds his liberal critics.
On Monday, Searcy took to Twitter to make an observation about the television show "The Walking Dead" and how it related to the current debate on gun control:
I don't understand this last episode of #TheWalkingDead: when the woman had her nasty gun taken away from her, she should have been safer!
In the episode Searcy referenced, a character named Andrea (played by actress Laurie Holden) is forced to turn in her gun while she is staying in Woodbury, a town under the firm control of a character called the Governor (played by actor David Morrissey). The Governor controls who carries guns in the town, and the residents comply in return for protection from the zombie hordes that now roam the earth.
When Andrea leaves the town without her gun, she only has a knife to defend herself from zombies and from the Governor himself, who chases her down and locks her in his torture chamber. Guns play a large role on the show; characters are always in search of weapons and ammo as the only way to survive in the zombie apocalypse.
Many of Searcy's over 5,500 Twitter fans appreciate his stand: Ben Hale tweeted "1 of best things about "Justified" is that one of the stars antagonizes the libs by simply being himself. Gold."
