Kurt Russell was recently interviewed by a Hollywood reporter who got into the topic of guns.
The reporter was probably a bit surprise when Russell wasn’t putting up with his hoplophobic b.s.
From The Blaze:
When Wells went on to say that guns are a ”metaphor that disenfranchised white guys need,” Russell let loose.
“If you think gun control is going to change the terrorists’ point of view, I think you’re, like, out of your mind,” he began. “I think anybody [who says that] is. I think it’s absolutely insane.”
“Dude, you’re about to find out what I’m gonna do, and that’s gonna worry you a lot more,” the actor continued. “And that‘s what we need. That will change the concept of gun culture, as you call it, to something [like] reality. Which is, if I’m a hockey team and I’ve got some guy bearing down on me as a goal tender, I’m not concerned about what he’s gonna do — I’m gonna make him concerned about what I’m gonna do to stop him. That’s when things change.”
“Wells: Just put some controls…
Russell: Put some controls? What, so the people, so the people who want to defend themselves can’t?
Wells: No, not so you can’t, just so the idiots can’t get hold of them [so easily], that’s all.
Russell: You really believe they’re not going to? Are you serious about that? What good will that…? Oh my God. You and I just disagree.”
You’ve got to listen to the interview here. It’s fantastic!
It’s refreshing to hear someone out of Hollywood who actually believes in our right to protect ourselves.
It’s far different from the normal candy ass Hollyweirdos who push Obama’s gun control measures while they hire armed security for their protection.
It’s mind-boggling that people actually don’t believe that Americans should be able to protect themselves. It’s also mind-boggling how they don’t understand that gun control only hurts law-abiding citizens and does nothing to stop criminals.
