Bruce Willis Opposes Proposed Gun Control Legislation, Says There Is No Connection Between Violence Onscreen And Off It

Bruce Willis has voiced his opinion against the lingering decision to impose tighter laws on gun control in America whilst promoting his new film, A Good Day To Die Hard, adding that he believes there is no connection between violence on screen and off it.

The action star, who will also star in the upcoming sequels G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Red 2, has stated his objection to any proposed altercations to the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the American Constitution, which states that people have the right to keep and bear arms. Speaking to press whilst promoting his latest turn as John McClane, the actor said, "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."

The topic of gun control has become paramount in America of late, largely due to the December shootings at Sandy Hook and at a Colorado cinema earlier in 2012. When further quizzed on his opinions on the pervasive issue, Willis also stated the he believes gun-wielding films like his next action-packed venture hold no relation to similar events. He said, "the real topic is diminished" when this is brought up, and that "no one commits a crime because they saw a film."

A Good Day To Die Hard comes out 14 February and coincidentally marks the 25th anniversary of the first instalment of the Die Hard franchise.
