Nicolas CageAfter playing an arms dealer in the little-seen Lord of War, Nicolas Cage told everyone that the movie had a profound effect on the way he sees the world. "I look at things differently now. I look at the news differently," he said. "I look at the people in power differently. I've hooked up with Amnesty International and I do what I can." As a result of his awakening, Cage has been working with Amnesty and Control Arms, and his interviews and statements have been helpful in bringing attention to the anti-arms cause.

The only problem, however, is that Cage's membership to the NRA is still active and paid in full. Oops. Since the NRA is "committed to preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals to purchase, possess and use firearms," there's just a tiny conflict of interests here. One assumes this was just an oversight on Cage's part, but at the same time, you would think that his new, passionate opposition to guns in general would have made canceling that NRA membership sort of a priority.
