Hollywood legend Kurt Russell gave a rare and candid conservative viewpoint about gun control and terrorism during a recent interview – giving a brutal takedown of Obama and his fellow socialist ilk.
Russell, star of the 1981 hit movie Escape from New York, responded to questions about the San Bernardino terrorist attack and the President’s subsequent call for gun control.
During a back and forth with the interviewer, Russell claimed that implementing gun control to stop terrorism is “absolutely insane.”
In recent interview with Jeffrey Wells, acting legend Kurt Russell responded to questions on the San Bernardino attacks by saying it’s “absolutely insane” to “think gun control will change terrorists’ point of view.”
This was preceded by Russell explaining that he doesn’t “understand concepts of conversation about gun culture” because “we’ve lived with guns since, what, the 7th Century or something?”
But according to Hollywood Elsewhere, Wells continued to paw at Russell, combining the emphasis on terrorism with the suggestion that guns are something “disenfranchised white guys need” so they can “feel good about themselves.”
If you think gun control is going to change the terrorists’ point of view, I think you’re, like, out of your mind. I think anybody [who says that] is. I think it’s absolutely insane. The problem, the problem that we’re having right now to turn it around…you may think you’ve got me worried about you’re gonna do? Dude, you’re about to find out what I’m gonna do, and that’s gonna worry you a lot more. And that’s what we need. That will change the concept of gun culture, as you call it, to something [like] reality. Which is, if I’m a hockey team and I’ve got some guy bearing down on me as a goal tender, I’m not concerned about what he’s gonna do — I’m gonna make him concerned about what I’m gonna do…
The interviewer continued badgering Russell about the topic, indicating that the San Bernardino terrorists hadn’t ‘killed people with cars.’
Russell fired back that “They’ve killed others that way, haven’t they?”
He then asked, “What are you going to do? Outlaw everything?”
