Anti-gun Hollywood celebrities enjoyed presidential-level protection by barricades, bomb-sniffing dogs, armed guards, LAPD officers, and numerous security checkpoints as they arrived for the 2019 Golden Globes.

Security was reportedly ramped up after last month’s triple stabbing at a Manchester railway station on New Year’s Eve.

“The recent attacks in Europe only reinforce that nothing can be left to chance tactically and strategically,” a Los Angeles law enforcement official told Deadline. “Our plan is to have eyes everywhere and shut down any possible disturbance that could arise long before it gets anywhere near the venue or the event.”

Variety previewed the heightened level of security expected around the Beverly Hilton — the venue for Sunday night’s star-studded ceremony — by noting that the days of being able to park on the street, walk up, and get inside may be long gone. They report that “the City of Beverly Hills has cracked down on allowing crowds near the building.”

And while the Beverly Hill Police Department would not go into details on specificity of their security plans, they made clear they would be using “additional staff and security measures to ensure a safe and secure site, utilizing the latest technology and best practices for high-profile events.”

Beverly Hills public information manager Keith Sterling made clear that federal agencies would also be involved in security. Sterling said, “As you might imagine, we are prohibited from discussing the specific security plans we have in place. But this is an extensive, collaborative effort, with federal and local agencies assisting the Beverly Hills Police Department.”

After the good guys with guns keep Hollywood’s upper crust safe at the Beverly Hilton, the celebrities can go back home, and wake up Monday to start pushing more gun control for commoners.

    So typical that they would be protected by guns and walls. They are a pathetic joke.

    You do realize, don’t you, that you’re using the term “anti-gun” incorrectly? Most liberals aren’t “anti-gun”—they merely believe in sensible regulations. That has absolutely nothing to do with accepting the idea of security guards at a major Hollywood event, where attendees are wearing priceless jewelry.

    This is about the lamest excuse to attack liberals that I’ve seen lately—and conservatives come up with some really silly ones.
