Last week, legendary actor Kurt Russell stunned the liberal world of Hollywood when he boldly took a stand for the Second Amendment.
Days later, Russell appeared on the struggling liberal talk show The View, where the idiot hosts tried to make him back down on his pro-gun stance. Luckily, Russell wasn’t having any of it.
“You’re a rare bird in Hollywood. You’re a libertarian,” Whoopi Goldberg began the interview, according to Western Journalism. “Recently, you made headlines by saying gun control, you felt gun control laws wouldn’t deter terrorists. Explain to folks.”
“There’s a very strong reason the Founding Fathers had for the Second Amendment,” Russell responded. “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.”
“We had our Civil War,” Russell continued. “If that Second Amendment hadn’t have been there, those people wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do what they considered defending their life, their way, their style of living. So I agree with that. I think that’s an important part of our existence. It’s basically that simple.”
The ignorant Joy Behar then tried to interject.
“I think people more object to the excesses of the Second Amendment,” she said. “Not the Second Amendment. It’s the boom, boom, boom, boom, boom guns.”
Unfazed, Russell continued educating the women about gun laws.
“And that’s where the debate comes in. I think it’s too bad the debate can’t remain civil, too. It’s hard to do,” he said. “I talked about, sometimes talking about terrorism, whatever we do, we all have our opinion on that, too. Whatever we do, we’re a little late for the people who have died … and if you know somebody or you know a child that was maimed in that situation, I got a strong feeling that one’s opinion has a tendency to change then.”
“So I just leave it open for interpretation by all different people and say, we’re all in this together,” Russell concluded.
