What You Talkin Bout Weatherby?

A few days ago I rented Season 3 Disc 1 of In Living Color. Some of the skits are funny as hell & besides, the Fly Girls - well - they were fly. One of the skits went over my head though. It was a satire of the Sally Struthers pleas for charity that used to be common. The catch with this one was it was her urging folks to send money to help child actors. Now here's the part that escapes me; they portrayed Gary Coleman as a gun nut. They mentioned it several times throughout the skit. (Of course they urged donations to help him cure his addiction.)

So dear reader I now pose this question to you; is Gary Coleman a gun nut? To be honest I haven't heard much about him being pro-gun or enjoying the shooting sports but then again I haven't paid real close attention to Hollywood gossip. Anyone know anything about this?

I believe they were portraying him as a gun nut because he once worked as a security guard and was reputed to have a temper. We all know that if you are angry and like uniforms you are a gun nut, Q.E.D.

Go here and scroll down to the video of Gary at the shooting range:

Hell, I thought he was dead.

I've never heard whether he likes to shoot or not, but I know two things from seeing him talk with Sean Hannity on Hannity and Colmes. He's nuttier than Aunt Hanna's fruitcake and would lose an argument to a hemlock stump. It's a daily miracle that he gets up of a morning without strangling in the bedsheets.
