Actor Kurt Russell doubled down on his recent comments where he said people who think gun control would prevent terrorism were “insane.”
Russell sat down with the women of “The View” on Friday to discuss his upcoming film “The Hateful Eight,” ironically directed by Quentin Tarantino who made waves recently when he painted police officers as murderers.
Co-Host Whoopi Goldberg asked him to explain his comments.
“I was kind of asked to put it (gun control) in context somehow with this movie. You know, my personal feeling is there’s a big difference between fantasyland and reality. Fantasyland is what we do. You’re either writing something, writing a song, writing a book, doing a movie, doing a television show. That’s fantasyland,” he said.
He added that he respects the fact that everyone has their own opinions on how to solve the issue of terrorism before explaining to the liberal panel why the Second Amendment exists in the first place.
“I think there’s a very strong reason (the) Founding Fathers had for the Second Amendment and that is that no government ever hasn’t had to fight its own people and its own people hasn’t had to fight its own government,” he said. “We had our Civil War. If that second amendment hadn’t been there, those people would not have had the opportunity to do what they considered was defending their life, their way, their style of living, so I agree with that. I think that’s an important part of our existence and it’s basically that simple.”
It really is that simple but will liberals ever get it?
