Bruce Willis recently talked with The Associated Press, saying that he is not in favor of new gun control laws that could encroach on the Second Amendment rights of the country. He also dismissed the idea that violence in Hollywood is connected to violence in reality.
“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 said in the interview. ”If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn’t they take all your rights away from you?”
Willis said that he thinks “the real topic is diminished” when people link Hollywood violence with violence in reality.
“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.”
He went on to say that he does not see how new legislation would help to prevent mass shootings in the future.
“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.”
