Actress Tweets Gun Safety vs. Gun Control and Loses Half Her Twitter Followers

Screen Shot 2013-06-12 at 9.06.12 AMOn June 10 Battlestar Galactica actress Katee Sackhoff tweeted about gun safety and countered a follower’s pro-gun control tweet–as a result she lost half of her Twitter followers–or about 100,000 people.

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.”
