Bruce Willis - thank you for being a voice of reason

From Washington, DC station WTOP:
Bruce Willis: Don't infringe on Second Amendment
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?"
A bit more -- talking about the underlying mental health issues:
"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."
Nice to see some intelligence coming out of Hollywood... Posted by DaveH at February 6, 2013 11:34 AM
