Bruce Willis defends Second Amendment, warns Bill of Rights could come “undone”

Bruce Willis is standing out in Hollywood for standing up for 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,” Willis told the Associated Press.”If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn’t they take all your rights away from you?”

The actor believes in the right to bear arms on and off the screen.

“No one commits a crime because they saw a film,” Willis said. “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.”

Willis will be seen shooting plenty of guns in his upcoming film “”A Good Day To Die Hard” as he battles terrorists in the fifth installment of the “Die Hard” series.

But Willis is in the minority in Hollywood for his firm belief in the Second Amendment. Even actors who appear in films with gun violence have hypocritically promoted gun control. Willis’ “The Whole Nine Yards” co-star Amanda Peet was just in Washington D.C. Wednesday urging Congress to pass gun reform legislation and even demanded federal funding to study the correlation between media violence and real-life violence.

Peet demanded action in the wake of the Sandy Hooking shooting. “Doing nothing will fail,” Peet argued during the press conference. “Doing nothing has failed.”

But her “Nine Yards” costar, while sympathetic with the Sandy Hook families, argues you can’t “legislate insanity.”

“It’s a difficult thing and I really feel bad for those families,” he told the Associated Press. “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.”

    Obama wants to destroy our constitution . Thats his main goal and he will chisel away at it one amendment at a time well the ones he finds offensive or that he just does not agree with . Again just shows how much this guy does not know or understand of the Constitution as I does state what the Gov. is obligated for to us as the people and what its powers over use was limited too. Maybe he should read that document then read his health plan act.. As I was told many times as a child Boy Sometimes its best to just keep quiet and look stupid then it is to open your mouth and remove all doubt .

    (Quote from him in 2001)
    State Senator Obama asserted that the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties in that it states what the State and Federal government could not do to you. He asserts that it is flawed in that it does not state what the State and Federal governments should be obligated to do on your behalf.

    I would be willing to bet money that this film will be boycotted and that Bruce will be put on the Black ball list like they tried to do to Charlie Sheen. Its sad that someone who is simply stated what he believes which is guaranteed in the first amendment will have to fight to get good roles again because of the overall political leaning of the industry he is apart of.
