Bruce Willis is pro-second amendment, can’t ‘legislate insanity’ and explains movie violence to real life

While promoting the latest installment of the Die Hard franchise, A Good Day To Die Hard actor Bruce Willis spoke out against new gun control laws, taking the all too well-known stance that such rules infringe on America’s Second Amendment rights.

During a recent interview with the Associated Press: “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.” He added, “If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn’t they take all your rights away from you?”

Willis not only shoots up bad guys in the Die Hard franchise, he also stars in the upcoming action flicks G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Red 2 both which involved their fair share of gun battles.

The questions naturally shift to the correlation between movie violence and real-life violence. Willis said in the interview, “No one commits a crime because they saw a film. There’s nothing to support that.” He continued, “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.”

“A Good Day to Die Hard” opens February 14, 2013.

 FULL STATEMENT UPDATE: “It’s a difficult thing and I really feel bad for those families. 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.”
