Sly Stallone to gun nuts "Who’s going to attack your house, a (expletive) army?”

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/feb/2/rambos-sylvester-stallone-supports-gun-control/

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Sylvester Stallone says that despite his “Rambo” image and new shoot-em-up film “Bullet to the Head,” he’s in favor of new national gun control legislation.

Stallone supported the 1994 “Brady bill” that included a now-expired ban on assault weapons, and hopes that ban can be reinstated.

<snip>

“I know people get (upset) and go, ‘They’re going to take away the assault weapon.’ Who … needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you’re carrying out an assault. … You can’t hunt with it. … Who’s going to attack your house, a (expletive) army?”

“It’s unbelievably horrible, what’s happened. I think the biggest problem, seriously, is not so much guns. It’s that every one of these people that have done these things in the past 30 years are friggin’ crazy. Really crazy! And that’s where we’ve dropped the ball: mental health,” he said. “That to me is our biggest problem in the future, is insanity coupled with isolation.”

33. It's sad how we elevate celebrities to expert status

Just because they're on TV. Both sides are guilty of it. But we'll never see the headline: "Cashier at Safeway comes out against Assault Weapons Ban." Even though her opinion is as valid as Sly's.

34. He also has numerous firearms, including auto-loaders, & not for movie use.

But he is a Republican in a Republican-founded, Republican-led, organization where elites are always taken care of early and often.

guns they feel a need to have on their persons at all times. I'm afraid to bump into someone accidentally.

22. Exactly. There is absolutely NO good reason anyone needs to strut to Wal Mart with a pistol

perched in their pants: and yet our 'pro gun progressives'* insist that not only is it their "Right" (it's not), it's almost their duty to do so. There's a lot of police officer-wannabes, guys who likely couldn't pass the MMPI in the first place. The compensation is taking a flawed and legally erroneous view of the 2nd amendment and using it to justify doing what George Zimmerman did - packing heat just looking for someone to plug at the drop of a hat.

It is truly uncivilized.

28. Providing security for oneself and one's family

is a pretty good reason. The police can't be everywhere at all times, usually the arrive just in time to draw chalk lines. My family deserves better response time than that, and TO ME they're worth protecting with the most effective form of self defense available. I'd consider it irresponsible to provide anything less.

Regarding the "right", the second amendment states the right to keep AND bear. As in carry. So yes, it is a right.

10. This is what my Dad would call "having your cake and eating it, too." He gets rich portraying a

pretend vengeful murderer against pretend murderers (I suppose as only watching TV ads) and has the gaul to preach against real vengeance against real murderers? And for that he wants to send millions of real people who accidentally mimic his pretend violence to a real mental health counselor at real cost of $150 an hour for not totally getting that he gets paid millions to pretend?

Yeah...not guns. Mental illness. Right. Get them psychiatrists at $400,000 a year...on the taxpayer's dime. That'll take care of the cultural repressed emotions that need to pay to watch me pretend to kill pretend bad guys.

Lord, give me strength.

12. Home invasion

The only people to come into my home without my permission was The Police. In my life (57 years) I've been robbed 5 times and assaulted 3 times away from my home and no one has ever been arrested by The Police for it. I don't own a gun, I've been loaned one from time to time but I've never owned one.

Disgusting. The title of the movie: disgusting.

Maybe he's doing a little damage control?

Edited to add: I cannot even describe how angry this makes me. Do as I say, not what I do to make tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars. Repulsive.

Stallone blames the mentally ill. He needs to educate himself. The mentally ill are more likely to be victims of violence than perpetrators.

Stallone has a son with autism. I seriously doubt he was blaming his own son.

37. That's pretty funny.

I think he's more likely going after the health care system, which offers little for mental well being.

It may be so that mentally ill are frequently victims. But I think you'll find that your typical mass murderer has psychological issues.

(If that whole thing was sarcasm, well, that's what I call dry. )

23. When these Hollywood fucks

 

start paying for armed security for me and my family and buy me a home in a walled community then they can pontificate about my having a gun. Until then they can STFU.

USA: BODYGUARD SHOT AND STABBED AT SYLVESTER STALLONE'S HOME IN MIAMI

INTRO: Action-Adventure film star Sylvester Stallone experienced some real life drama at his home in Miami when one of his security guards was shot and stabbed in an attempted robbery. A security guard who worked at the multimillion-dollar Miami mansion of actor Sylvester Stallone stabbed and shot another guard on Wednesday (July 17) during an apparent robbery attempt, police said.

Stallone, best known as Rambo and Rocky, was not at home when the incident took place. Corey Wade a security guard employed at Stallone's property in an exclusive neighbourhood on Biscayne Bay, was charged with attempted first-degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and burglary with assault, police said.

Romero was cut on the neck and shot several times and was in serious but stable condition late on Wednesday, police said.

Stallone's walled bayfront estate is in an upscale section of the Miami neighbourhood known as Coconut Grove. Neighbours include recording the singer, Madonna.

Here's a guy who likely has his own armed security, and has built pretty much his entire career on glorifying violence, telling the rest of the country they shouldn't have guns.

Excuse me if I don't worship at his altar.

My family is no more or less deserving of armed security then Sly's family. It's beyond hypocritical to think that my family, should be any less protected, with armed security than some fuckhead named Sylvester, just because of celebrity status.

He's used firearms in just about every movie he's ever made, he's had a CCW since 2004 and yet he rails against the average citizen being afforded the same as him.

He's one of those, good for me but not for thee.
