WATCH What Happens When Kurt Russell Shows Up To ‘The View’ Armed With A Truth Grenade
In an interview earlier this week with Hollywood Elsewhere to plug the new movie The Hateful Eight, Russell said it was “absolutely insane” to think gun laws would stop terrorists. “If you think gun control is going to change a terrorists’ point of view, I think you’re, like, out of your mind,” he said.
On Friday, Whoopi Goldberg started the interview by pointing out that Russell’s views go against the grain.
“You’re a rare bird in Hollywood. You’re a libertarian,” she said. “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. 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 explained.
