Newspaper Uses Death Of James Bond Actor To Bash Guns

posted on May 25, 2017

The Mercury News on Tuesday used the recent death of Roger Moore, who played the role of Agent 007 in many James Bond films, to bash guns and gun ownership for no apparent reason.

In the feature titled “Roger Moore never liked guns—even James Bond’s Walther PPK,” author Martha Ross wrote: “In real life, Moore hated guns, especially the way society glorified men who wielded them, according to the Huffington Post.” She further quoted the English actor, who died this week at age 89, as once saying he was “completely opposed to small arms and what they can do to children.”

The obituary leaves one wondering why Ross focused her attention on Moore’s aversion to firearms, rather than his lasting legacy of entertainment through the Bond films.
