Today is Tom Selleck’s birthday. And you probably will never guess how old the Magnum PI star is as he doesn’t seem to age at the same rate as the rest of us.
The conservative Hollywood legend turns 71 today.
Selleck doesn’t back away from conservative principles, especially the Second Amendment. He once owned Rosie O’Donnell in a debate on gun control.
Rosie: You also have the freedom of speech, but you’re not allowed to scream ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater because it threatens the safety of other people. Assault weapons threaten the safety of other people. There’s no reason in my opinion to have them. You wanna have a hunting rifle? Great. You wanna have a handgun?
Tom: Do you really think the Second Amendment is in the Constitution to guarantee hunting and target shooting? Do you really think that’s what the Founding Fathers meant?
The Detroit native was in the California National Guard before breaking through with his acting career. Today, Selleck stars in “Blue Bloods” which was an unexpected hit on CBS on Friday nights. The show is in its sixth season.
