Milano vs. Muller: A Good Response to Bad Advice

Milano vs. Muller: A Good Response to Bad Advice

In the midst of a worldwide pandemic when Hollywood actors and actresses seem less important by the day, some just can’t seem to help trying to get back into the limelight by weighing in on social issues. Such was the case recently with Alyssa Milano, a long-time advocate of more restrictive gun-control laws.

When Milano took time out of her busy acting schedule to scold law-abiding Americans for purchasing firearms during the COVID-19 pandemic, even suggesting those same citizens might later become mass shooters, former Tulsa cop Dianna Muller didn’t take it well.

“I’m seeing reports all over the country of Americans responding to the coronavirus outbreak by buying up guns and ammunition, and I know that we are all scared and stressed out during these really uncertain times,” Milano said in a social media post. “But that is exactly why stockpiling weapons could have dire consequences for our own personal safety and those around us.”

Not content to simply give bad advice on a topic she knows little about, Milano then doubled down on dumb.


“You know, the weapons that people are buying today could end up being used in households, schools, churches, bars and on our streets in the future,” she concluded.


Interestingly, Milano has said in the past that she owns firearms herself—for the very same reason many people are buying guns during a worldwide pandemic. In a 2019 livestreamed conversation with U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Milano said, “By the way, I have two guns in my household for self-defense, just so you know.” She didn’t reveal what kinds of guns she owned.

Muller, a retired Tulsa police officer, professional competitive shooter and founder of the D.C. Project, quickly posted her own video on her Facebook page addressing Milano’s most recent statements. Many readers probably remember Muller for her testimony last September before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, where she bluntly told lawmakers that if they passed an assault weapons ban, “I will not comply.”

“I just had the opportunity to see Alyssa Milano’s latest plea for people to stop buying guns during a pandemic,” Muller said. “Well, hello, I’m tired of people who are not experts in firearms giving firearms-related advice. I’m a retired police officer, I’m a professional shooter, and if anybody out there is curious about real gun safety, you should call an expert. Don’t listen to Alyssa Milano.”

Muller also took the opportunity to invite Milano to the range to learn more about safety, guns, shooting gun ownership.


“And Alyssa, if I could ever get to you, I would invite you to the range and I would offer you the education that you’re missing,” Muller said. “We are the gun-safety advocates. We are the experts. Come to us.

“One of the things that the antis don’t want to tell you is that guns save more lives than they take unlawfully. So, Alyssa, let’s go to the range. Let’s get you some of that education, not legislation. That’s the D.C. Project motto.”

Contacted later, Muller said she had not heard back from Milano on her invitation to go the range, but the offer still stands.


“I’d love to confirm firearm safety and fundamentals with her,” Muller said. “But really I want her to spend some time with the group of D.C. Project ladies, getting to know them and listening to their stories about why they believe firearms in their homes are assets and not liabilities.

“The D.C. Project believes that education, not legislation, is the key to safety, and that gun rights are women’s rights.”
