Bruce Willis against new gun control laws, says there's no link between Hollywood violence and real violence


Published February 06, 2013

Associated Press

Bruce Willis attends a news conference for the film "Moonrise Kingdom" on May 16, 2012. (Reuters)

Bruce Willis says he's against new gun control laws that could infringe on Second Amendment rights. The "Die Hard" star also dismisses any link between Hollywood shootouts and real-life gun violence.

"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 in a recent interview while promoting his latest film, "A Good Day To Die Hard." ''If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn't they take all your rights away from you?"

Willis' fifth outing as wise-cracking cop John McClane, due in theaters Feb. 14, comes as his action franchise marks its 25th anniversary. The 57-year-old actor will also be seen firing away at bad guys in the upcoming sequels "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" and "Red 2," both due later this year.

But he believes "the real topic is diminished" when observers link Hollywood entertainment with high-profile mass shootings like those last year in Connecticut and Colorado.

"No one commits a crime because they saw a film. There's nothing to support that," Willis said. "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 added that he doesn't see how additional legislation could prevent future mass shootings.

"It's a difficult thing and I really feel bad for those families," he said. "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."

Finally, someone picking up the torch that Charleton Heston carried.

I knew that there was a reason why I like(d) his movies.

Perhaps he will become more vocal.

There are some movies about people "flipping out", but not that many and few with happy endings.

He gets it to a point. He thinks violence on tv and movies does not play a part in social issues. He is squed on that one. If I made a gagillion dollars on Die Hard movies, I might miss that part also.

IMHO the point he was trying to make is the mental factor that should be addressed. No amount of violent movies/video games/ or tv will make a sain person decide to shoot up some place. They don't help with those on the edge though.

When I was young, people taught kids right and wrong. Today, tv teaches kids wrong and wrong. Very little Mr. Rogers programing for kids today.

I have watched action movies my wole life and not once did I want to go on a shooting spree just for the hell of it. I tend to agree with Mr. Willis, I dont think its the violence on TV but the person watching it. Its not the guns, its not the movies, its the person who pulls the trigger who is responsible.

Got a point there. Tv died in the 90's

I am honestly shocked at what Willis said. I was absolutely completely convinced that ALL of Hollyweird was completely braindead and he went and proved me wrong. It's good to see that at least one person in that liberal cesspool of human degeneration has a functioning human brain and is willing to open his mouth and prove it.
