Outspoken liberal Hollywood actress Alyssa Milano showed up to an anti-gun protest against the National Rifle Association in Dallas on Saturday with an entourage of armed security. NRA member Will Haraway approaches one of Milano's bodyguards to ask him whether he was carrying a firearm or not. The scene was caught on video by Ben Howe and shared on social media.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">This is Will Haraway a CCW <a href="https://twitter.com/NRA?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@nra</a> member. He asked <a href="https://twitter.com/Alyssa_Milano?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Alyssa_Milano</a>’s security if he was armed (he was) and then asked Alyssa about it. Here’s what happened. (She comes to talk to him after this and I will post that longer video shortly). <a href="https://t.co/qMsq6rbzDd">pic.twitter.com/qMsq6rbzDd</a></p>&mdash; Ben (@BenHowe) <a href="https://twitter.com/BenHowe/status/992824417477693441?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">May 5, 2018</a></blockquote>

Haraway's confrontation with the security guard attracted Milano's attention when he shouted: "You're a hypocrite" at her. Milano approaches Haraway and the two get into a heated debate with Haraway calling out the hypocrisy of lobbying against the NRA while being protected by armed security. Milano really has no rebuttal against Haraway's accusation that she is a hypocrite. In fact, Milano doubles down and reveals that her husband owns two firearms.

Milano essentially proved Haraway's point that campaigning against gun rights from the safely of an armed entourage is hypocritical. She goes on to say, "I have no problem with NRA members that are lawful and have guns. Zero problems with that." So exactly why is she speaking at a protest against the NRA and wearing a #NoRA shirt?

The conversation really gets nowhere and Milano has no defense against the claim she is a hypocrite, if anything, she proved it is true. And one other thing, what is up with the security guard getting in his face and dictating where he can stand on public property?

Milao later tweeted to Howe about the video he shared and said, "Looking forward to when you post the rest of the unedited conversation I had with your friend." The original video did not contain her conversation with Haraway but was later posted as well. Although I'm not sure why she wanted it to be posted, she only made herself look like even more of a hypocrite. The full conversation is below.

If you are special, it is alright to do what others can't. It is okay to defend yourself with a gun at an anti gun protest, in case someone with a gun shows up. Since you are protesting guns. Someone might just do that. So you need to have a gun to defend yourself. If the world was better, we might be able to do it without guns, so until Obama is president again, then we need to have guns to defend ourselves.
