Sylvester Stallone Supports Assault Weapon Ban
Time NewsFeed ^ | 2/1/13 | Ryan Pearson

Posted on 02/02/2013 12:09:45 AM PST by RC one

(BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.) — Sylvester Stallone says that despite his “Rambo” image and new shoot-em-up film “Bullet to the Head,” he’s in favor of new national gun control legislation

Stallone supported the 1994 “Brady bill” that included a now-expired ban on assault weapons, and hopes that ban can be reinstated.

“I know people get [upset] and go, ‘They’re going to take away the assault weapon.’ Who … needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you’re carrying out an assault. … You can’t hunt with it. … Who’s going to attack your house, a [expletive] army?”

Whose going to attack your house?

Ask the Colonists of our Revolution.
Ask the residents of Waco, Texas
Ask the residents of Ruby Ridge
Ask the Korean shop owners of the LA Riots

Stallone continues,
“It’s unbelievably horrible, what’s happened. I think the biggest problem, seriously, is not so much guns. It’s that every one of these people that have done these things in the past 30 years are friggin’ crazy. Really crazy! And that’s where we’ve dropped the ball: mental health,” he said. “That to me is our biggest problem in the future, is insanity coupled with isolation.”

Sylvester Stallone is a no-talent, has-been moron and a foul-mouthed one at that, much like his fellow gun-grabber, Joe [expletive] Biden.

Guns protect me from people like you who would allow tyranny and help impose it.
Read the bill of rights if you can escape from your liberal echo chamber long enough.
Even better, the Federalist papers.

Sorry to get off topic, but I am trying out the new grease monkey tool bar on Firefox and it has NO usability that I can see.
Is there a trick to it?

Thanks.. and Stallone looks terrible in that pic... what is it from? Is it just him getting up to say “good day”... “like muscle implants?”

Off topic again, but I got the script running.

Seems to be working just fine. If you have never used it... try it as it works totally off of thought process. For example.. I an thinking about BOLD and it does it. Now I am thinking about Italics and it does it.

I just thought about breaking and it did it!~~~~~ I will think about underlining and what do you know.. it did that too! Wow, it really (Thinking BiG)... and it worked! (Break, Break)

It did it again! Just amazing and all done with thought. Give it a try! Let us all know if it is working for you! :-)

how about a gang attack? How about multiple perpetrators of any kind? I have to defend myself against multiple armed perps with a six shooter because....it gives them a sporting chance? How about enraged rioters? How about looters? How about a corrupt and incompetent government that has gone bankrupt and is forced to impose military tyranny over its people in order to avoid defaulting on its debt and collapsing upon its foundation.

Who the hell is anybody to tell me how I may and may not defend myself in this country? FU Sly.

In the movie Demolition man, LA and San Diego had merged into one massive super liberal utopia called San Angeles.

The movie was actually pretty prophetic. Stallone’s character had to break into a museum to get guns to protect an unarmed population from a crazed killer.

The insanity is having an armed public that cannot resist tyranny..Stallone! The colonials had the same type of weapons the British Army had at the time to match their aggression - the same applies today...call them what you like - but an AR-15 is equal to an M-4 minus the 3 rd burst...it evens the playing field.

How about I just want one , have the cash to buy it, no criminal record and can pass the Governments background checks.

It’s not up to Stallone or any other Hollywoood prick who makes money shooting people on the screen to say what I can and cannot purchase.

Stallone was always one of the “dimmest bulb” actors anyway. I doubt if he can tie his shoes.

umm, yeah, maybe obama's army. He's already purging the military of those generals who refuse to shoot at Americans.

He is a little man, seriously. His handprint is at any Planet Hollywood, place you’re hand over it, it is a child-sizes hand. He is only 5’ 10”. All the Movie shots of him are from waist level making him look big. Now it turns out he is personally also just an illusion. Rambo isn’t so real is he?

I wouldn’t be too worried about the political leanings of the generals.It’s the man with his finger on the trigger that will have to decide to become a murderer or not.The line infantry guys that I know would shoot their officer if he ordered them to fire into a crowd of Americans.

Is this humor? A guy makes multimillions on violence and guns and then does this? Hopefully there’s a hot spot waiting for many of these people because there is no justice here.

His brother, who shows on the Worlds Dumbest with Harding, Bonaduce, and others probably has more sense. Hell - the rest of the crew probably has more sense.

This is the same jackass who hid in Switzerland to avoid the Vietnam War . . . then, the sissy comes back to America and makes all these tough guy films (in some of which he had his hair up in ribbons) to hide behind the sound stage.

He's a worthless, cowardly example of Hollyweird. Never had any use for him.

Perhaps the govt. should tax the violent gun ridden movie makers and stars a tidy sum for every movie they made glorifying violent, illegal use of guns. 90%, like they taxed wall street types, should be about right. Start with the stars that are anti 2nd amendment and made their living off glorifying violence.

Idiot. What about a handful of Obama’s sons breaking down your door a 3am?

What are you gonna do Stallone, dial and wait 20 minutes for the cops? Face multiple bad guys with a single shot “hunting” rifle that's locked and doesn't have ammo? Hide under your bed?

Who … needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you’re carrying out an assault. … You can’t hunt with it. … Who’s going to attack your house, a [expletive] army?”

1. assault weapon is a political term
2. Yes you can hunt with AR’s and the like.
3. As to who may attack my house that would be the Government. Which is why the founders made the 2nd Amendment the 2nd one............

Typical idiot.
Yes, he is able to state his opinion.
Yes, he can have an opinion, whether he agrees with me or not.
However, if he hadn’t made a ‘very good’ living by ‘shooting and maiming’ others, it wouldn’t matter.

Much like Bill Cosby’s wife saying ‘White America wasn’t fair’.
Sorry Mrs C, while I am sure Bill would have been successful in ANY venue, the White Americans that paid to see his shows, watch his movies, buy products he sponsored etc turned you from a ‘Wealthy woman’, into a Woman of Substantial Means - coming from Bill’s success by the way.

Remember a line from one of his TV shows...”Theo said WE are rich”.
“Sit down Son, your mother and I are rich, even well off, BUT you happen to be fortunate enough to be born into this family. YOU have nothing”. (or something along that line)
