Default Samuel L Jackson on Newtown shooting

I apologize in advance if this has been already posted, but it was too good NOT to have it here in case it isn't!

Activists have spoken out in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting to demand stricter gun control laws in America, but actor Samuel L. Jackson is not one of them.

Jackson does not think lax gun control or violence in movies is to blame for shootings like the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

During an interview with the Los Angeles Times, the actor explained: "I don't think it's about more gun control. I grew up in the South with guns everywhere and we never shot anyone. This [shooting] is about people who aren't taught the value of life." He does not think violent movies or videogames are to blame, either.

Jackson believes that parents and role models who instill the value of life in their children will accomplish more than legislation that reduces the number of firearms in the country, the L.A. Times reported.

The 63-year-old actor stars in one of the most gun-friendly films of the season, Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." The film is about a slave-turned-bounty hunter (Jamie Foxx) who inflicts fierce revenge while on a quest to rescue his wife from a brutal slaveowner (Leonardo DiCaprio).

Here's the complete article;
