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.”
