So the fifth entry in the wheezing “Die Hard” franchise comes out in just over a week, and surprisingly, it’s taken this long for the inevitable talk about a sixth entry to crop up. But with Bruce Willis on the press trail, the question has been asked, and the answer from the actor is simple: “Yes.”
I’ll wait to say for sure until I have seen Die Hard 5, but I think this is probably good.
But post-Sandy Hook and Aurora, the question of violence in media and gun control is one that increasingly comes up in press rounds and Willis has weighed in on the touchy subject of gun control. And he’s against it.
“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 told The Associated Press (via NYPost). ‘‘If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn’t they take all your rights away from you?” He also adds that “there’s no way to legislate against insanity.” We’re sure the NRA will send him an awesome gift basket next Christmas.
Smart guy! Right on.
“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.”
Really smart guy. Can I send him a gift basket? You gotta love Bruce Willis.
