California Billionaires “Bunker Up” ... While Seeking Gun Bans That Disarm The Defenseless

Many of the richest elitists from Hollywood to Silicon Valley are building multi-million-dollar bunkers under their homes to protect them, even as they bankroll gun-control schemes that would leave those of us who actually need firearms for protection more defenseless in the case of emergency, according to the Hollywood Reporter

Indeed, from Microsoft’s Bill Gates—the richest man in the world—to Hollywood’s Lady Gaga, to Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, some of the leading luminaries of the lavishly rich anti-gun elite have built bunkers, or safe rooms, to protect themselves and their families—while the rest of us can go pound sand. 

Don’t get us wrong: We think it’s great that the super rich can afford such luxuries as Zuckerberg’s 16-man, 24/7 security detail. But when those same elitists spend millions to disarm those who need firearms the most for protection—the urban poor, for example—that’s hypocrisy at its ugliest.
