When Mark Hamill isn't busy recording one of his numerous voice-over roles or starring as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, he's been known to have an active political presence on Twitter.
Cute video Ajit "Aren't I Precious?" Pai 🤮-but you are profoundly unworthy 2 wield a lightsaber-A Jedi acts selflessly for the common man-NOT lie 2 enrich giant corporations. Btw-did you pay John Williams his royalty? @AjitPaiFCCorpShill #AJediYouAreNOT pic.twitter.com/SpIcOEySUY— @HamillHimself (@HamillHimself) December 16, 2017
Thanks for smarm-spaining it to me @tedcruz I know politics can be confusing, but you'd have more credibility if you spelled my name correctly. I mean IT'S RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU! Maybe you're just distracted from watching porn at the office again❤️-mh https://t.co/nHpJVG1Wpe— @HamillHimself (@HamillHimself) December 17, 2017
Another controversy Hamill often addresses is gun control. In fact, he used the issue to help create an emotionally resonant backstory for his character in The Last Jedi. The story involves a child accidentally activating Luke's lightsaber.
America has a lot of crazy people and the gun laws are just totally wrong and disproportionate for what we need.
Once again we get a Hollywood millionaire, protected on set by armed body guards 24/7, and he thinks our gun laws are too strict. He’s also a hypocrite. Star Wars was and is a violent movie. All of them are. Shoot ’em up thrillers at their best. What if the Galactic Republic outlawed lightsabers and ray guns? No more armed spaceships. Darth Vader’s evil empire would have run ramshod over Skywalker. Han Solo would have died who knows how many movies ago. In fact, the lightsabers and laser guns are what gave the good guys in every Star Wars movie a fighting chance.
Interesting question. We never learn whether those who have blasters (e.g. Han Solo) have licenses to carry them. My guess is blasters are licensed but Han doesn't have one. And Jedi were part of the government, they probably didn't need licenses to carry lightsabers. https://t.co/dHHD4D9jmX— Taylor Wofford (@taylorjwofford) December 20, 2017
Hamill hasn't yet responded, most likely because Stinchfield's argument left him speechless. Sorry, but it looks like we'll now have to remove all regulations on guns, blasters, and lightsabers!
