Samuel L. Jackson Unchained: Guns? ‘Hell Yeah!’
(GunAuction.com) — Samuel L. Jackson stars in Django Unchained, the movie whose premiere was delayed out of respect for the victims of Sandy Hook. And Jackson is speaking out against those who would restrict access to firearms in reaction to the massacre in Sandy Hook, an item on Breitbart’s Big Hollywood website relates.
Said Jackson: "I don't think it's about more gun control. I grew up in the South with guns everywhere and we never shot anyone. This [shooting] is about people who aren't taught the value of life … I don’t think movies or video games have anything to do with it.”
Jackson added, “We need to stop deranged people from getting access to guns.”
According to Breitbart’s report, Jackson has long been an advocate of gun ownership. He said in April 2012, in the aftermath of the shooting of Trayvon Martin, “I don’t mind people having guns. I grew up with guns in Tennessee … I’m not going to be the one without the gun when the people who have guns show up.”
When asked if he is a gun owner, Jackson responded, “Hell yeah!”
