In the liberal world of Hollywood, it’s considered risky to one’s career to take a stand against a major agenda of Barack Hussein Obama. That’s why it came as a surprise when Battlestar Galactica star Katee Sackhoff defended gun rights on her Twitter account. However, she quickly learned the damage that can be done to an actor’s career once they come out as conservative…
Three years ago, Sackhoff responded to a story circulating on Twitter about a 4-year-old Arizona boy fatally shooting his father.
“Please practice gun safety,” Sackhoff responded, according to Breitbart. “This is horrible.”

This benign Tweet prompted some of Sackhoff’s followers to call for gun control, but the actress wasn’t having any of it.
“Never going to happen in the U.S. Proper gun safety is a necessity though,” she tweeted.
According to Conservative Tribune, Sackhoff’s liberal fans were furious about that second Tweet. In just a few hours, Sackhoff lost around 100,000 twitter followers, leaving her with just over 98,000 left. Despite the backlash, Sackhoff refused to surrender to the liberal lynch mob that was now after her.
“Well I guess just learned talking about #GunSafety inspires a massive debate,” she wrote. “Pro-gun or Anti-gun SAFETY should be unanimous!”
Though Sackhoff lost half her fans, the ones that remained rushed to defend her.
“Real fans won’t leave you for wanting people to handle firearms in a safe, responsible way,” one fan tweeted her, according The Washington Times.
“You’ve lost the crazy people,” wrote another. “The logical people stick around and understand what you’re saying.”
