Bruce Willis - Bruce Willis Speaks Out Against Removal Of Gun Rights

Bruce Willis has spoken out about his opposition to the suggestion of a proposed gun ban in the US following the tragic Connecticut school shootings.

In an interview with The Associated Press, the 'Die Hard' star spoke of his fears that any change to the second amendment to the US constitution could result in all human rights being relinquished. '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', he said. 'If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn't they take all your rights away from you?' He has also argued with the suggestion that violent movies and video games are the type of thing that causes gun violence in America such as the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut and at the cinema in Aurora, Colorado - two events which took place last year within months of each other.  '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.'

The actor is well-known for his violent action movies such as 'Pulp Fiction', 'The Fifth Element', 'RED' and, most famously, the 'Die Hard' movies; the fourth of which, 'A Good Day To Die Hard', is due for release on February 14th 2013.
