    WILLIS SPEAKS OUT FOR GUNS

    At least there's ONE ok guy in CA.


    Movie star BRUCE WILLIS supports Americans in their constitutional right to carry a gun, insisting everyone should be able to defend themselves with a weapon if need be. The DIE HARD actor is keen to point out gun owners are not automatically violent. He says, "If you take guns away from legal gun owners then the only people who would have guns would be the bad guys. "Even a pacifist would get violent if someone were trying to kill him or her. "You would fight for your life, whatever your beliefs. You'd use a rock or tear one of these chairs out of the floor. "Hey, maybe I've been watching too many Bruce Willis movies!"

    Not that I don't believe it, and Bruce is pretty much at the top of my list for actors, but, what's the source for this?

    Snarky, high-horsed comment about a line of dialogue uttered in a movie over a decade ago in 5...4...3..

    I had heard in passing he's pro 2nd. It's nice to hear from Him directly.
    Got a few old DVD's to buy this weekend

    Thanks for that article, NineseveN; it's the first news source I've read in several months that put a grin on my face instead of a knot in my belly.

    ~GnSx
    P.S.~ I watched the news for half an hour on Monday. I got so angry that my stomach hurt for the rest of the day, and I'm not even exaggerating.

    Sound familiar?

    Yes, I remember that quote from Diehard 2

    After John Maclaine kills Sgt Cochrane and took away his gun-which happend to be a Glock 17 9mm-he goes in to Lorenzo's office and has an argument with the captain.Maclaine explains to Lorenzo that Cochrane's gun was a German-made Glock 7gun, made out of porcelain and was worth more than both Lorenzo's and his own, monthy paychecks.

    Typical ill-thoughout names given out to items,that arn't called such things in the real-world.Other than that a great and very entertaining movie,with an exeptionally-believeable actor in the leading role as John Maclaine-Bruce Willis.Shame about the wrong information on the Glock.

    A good friend of mine (my primary instructor in self-defense) knows Mr. Willis personally from a project they worked on together, and he tells me Bruce is a stand-up guy, even when they crossed paths years later at a Planet Hollywood. If it wouldn't corrupt him, I'd like to see him run for President. How to handle N. Koreas's nuclear saber-rattling? "Yippee kai-i-yay, ...."

    Not quite "Go ahead, make my day," but still a good attitude for a CinC to have.

    Tom Sellic is another of the good guys. I would be more than happy to buy Tom and Bruce a frosty barley pop anyday.

    I've only heard people from the mid-west use that term. As for Willis, I met him on when I was deployed. He seemed like a real down to earth, shot-and-a-beer kinda guy.

    Did someone say "shot & a beer"?

    Best Willis film, IMO: The Fifth Dimension.

    It's all about Milla Jovovitch.

    Tears of the Sun was also very good...and Last Man Standing, The Last Boyscout and...well, just about anything he's made I've enjoyed (except that Moonlighting show, but perhaps I was too youbng back then to enjoy it)...but I do indeed have a soft spot for The Fifth Element. :D :D :D

    My favorite Bruce Willis movie is Hudson Hawk. Anyone who knowingly makes a movie like that has got to have a lot of confidence in his manliness!

    Finally, an actor with films I can watch without the nagging reminder in the back of my head that this person is happily working to erode my rights and advance leftist agendas. :)
