Bruce Willis Speaks Up On Gun Control

Legendary Hollywood actor Bruce Willis sent a clear message about gun control during an interview.

Bruce Willis’ acting career achieved magnificent success in 1988 for his role as a witty cop named John McClane in the blockbuster action film titled Die Hard. The movies follows off-duty New York City Police Department officer John McClane as he takes on a group of highly organized criminals led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), who executed a heist in a Los Angeles skyscraper. Die Hard grossed over $140 million in theaters worldwide, and it was the first of what would be a series of five movies based on the Willis’ character.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Bruce Willis had this to say about those seeking to change the Second Amendment:

“I think that you can’t start to pick apart anything out of the Bill of Rights without thinking that it’s all going to become undone. If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn’t they take all your rights away from you?”

Bruce Willis then defended Hollywood when he said that people who blame movies for mass shootings occurring in society are actually diminishing the real topic.

“No one commits a crime because they saw a film. There’s nothing to support that. We’re not making movies about people that have gone berserk, or gone nuts. Those kind of movies wouldn’t last very long at all.”

On January 15, 2013, and in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut, New York enacted the nation’s strictest gun restrictions, including an expanded ban on scary-looking rifles, and ammunition. Bruce Willis addressed the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting as well as the new gun restrictions that followed by saying,

“It’s a difficult thing and I really feel bad for those families. I’m a father and it’s just a tragedy. But I don’t know how you legislate insanity. I don’t know what you do about it. I don’t even know how you begin to stop that.”

The Sandy Hook Elementary Shooting shooting occurred on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, when 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children aged between 6 and 7 years old, as well as six adult staff members. As first responders were arriving at the school, Adam Lanza committed suicide by shooting himself in the head according to Wikipedia.

Bruce Willis makes his position clear in reference to those seeking to change or abolish the Second Amendment and it’s this: Don’t infringe on my rights!

    “I think that you can’t start to pick apart anything out of the Bill of
    Rights without thinking that it’s all going to become undone. If you
    take one out or change one law, then why wouldn’t they take all your
    rights away from you?”

    I could not agree more. Furthermore, that is exactly what would happen to us if HRC is elected and is allowed to appoint judges to the SCOTUS.
