Actress Tweets About Gun Safety – Loses Half Twitter Audience

Can you believe this? You may remember the awesome actress who played Starbuck on Battlestar Galactica — Katee Sackhoff.  Well, recently, she has some drama of her own — in the social media world.  When she tweeted to her 100,000 followers a message about gun safety, she lost half her followers.  Here’s the story:

Sackhoff’s original gun safety tweet was in response to a story CNN carried about a 4-year old Arizona boy who fatally shot his father by accident. The boy apparently found a handgun lying in a home he and his father were visiting, picked it up and pulled the trigger. 

Sackhoff tweeted: “Please practice gun safety! This is horrible!”

After this, one of Sackhoff’s followers tweeted for more and more gun control. The actress responded: “Never going to happen in the U.S. Proper gun safety is a necessity though.”

As Reason.com reports, after a couple of hours Sackhoff had lost approximately 100,000 followers, but she did not give in. Instead she tweeted: “Well I guess just learned talking about #GunSafety inspires a massive debate. Pro-gun or Anti-gun SAFETY should be unanimous!”

Way to go!  If you believe in gun safety, maybe you should follow Katee! @kateesackhoff

    Good on Katee for sticking to her guns. Safety is key for adults and kids!

    Truth of the matter is, a gun in the house is more likely to be used against a loved one intentionally or by accident than in self defense.

    The safest thing is to not have one in the first place. But if you do keep it locked up, unloaded and inaccessible to children. Far too many Americans do not.

    What exactly is Bristol trying to convey or to be outraged about?
    Does she even comprehend what the twit was about. Her reading comprehension and ability to communicate really show her education level. I feel bad for people who are so uneducated. poor poor woman.
