Brad Pitt doesn’t share all the conservative views of his beautiful ex-wife Angelina Jolie, but he does care about the 2nd amendment.
Brad Pitt is such a supporter of gun rights because he knows that the police can never truly protect your family at all times. And he’s had a gun since kindergarten!
Brad Pitt has been a gun owner for a very long time.
The recently married actor told Radio Times he inherited his grandfather’s gun when he was a child.“There’s a rite of passage where I grew up of inheriting your ancestors’ weapons,” said 50-year-old Pitt, according to the Independent. “My brother got my dad’s. I got my grandfather’s shotgun when I was in kindergarten.” Pitt revealed he was given an air gun first and got the shotgun at age 6. He said he first fired a handgun at age 8.
The husband of Angelina Jolie—and father of six— added in the interview that he doesn’t really feel that his family is safe unless there is a gun in his home.
“The positive is that my father instilled in me a profound and deep respect for the weapon,” he said.

Awesome! Pitt is standing up for the principles of our Founding Fathers, as he knows the importance of bearing arms are in the battle to defend liberty. If guns are legal, criminals have a much higher risk of people fighting back, which is why gun ownership reduces crime.
Good for Brad Pitt! Hopefully he will take his pro-gun message to his misguided anti-gun Hollywood liberal friends and explain to them why gun ownership is so important.
