“America is a country founded on guns. It’s in our DNA. It’s very strange but I feel better having a gun. I really do. I don’t feel safe, I don’t feel the house is completely safe, if I don’t have one hidden somewhere. That’s my thinking, right or wrong.”
- Brad Pitt
The above quotation was taken from a recent interview with the Hollweird acting star. Many in the pro-gun community may take it as a sign he is a right wing political spokesman now.
Is Brad Pitt one of us? If "us" is a gun loving American you are totally correct, if you expect it to mean he is going to be a card carrying Republican, well I am going to have to disappoint you. Mr. Pitt is a strong backer of our current President and certainly not a republican. This just goes to show what I have said for a long while, the 2nd Amendment does not apply just to one section of America, but ALL Americans. Still, why Brad would back someone with an obvious anti-gun bias when he himself has such opposing views is beyond me, but then again voting based on just one platform position is often dangerous in an of itself. I will respect both his right to choose whichever candidate he wants as well as his right to exercise the same 2A rights I do.
Apparently his fiance, Angelina Jolie is also a gun gal as Pitt announced they will be constructing a private shooting range at their home in France as a wedding present to her.
Jolie's father is actor John Voight, who is a republican by the way...and also a gun guy.
