Sylvester Stallone Supports Assault Weapon Ban

By RYAN PEARSON February 2, 2013 (AP)

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?"

The 66-year-old actor, writer and director said he also hopes for an additional focus on mental health to prevent future mass shootings.

"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."

Stallone is now in production on his next project, pairing up with the former "Raging Bull" Robert De Niro for "Grudge Match," about two aging boxers.

"People think it's going to be some geezer brawl. Really? OK, they're in for a surprise. I'm telling you. I've been working on the fight, the choreography. He's taking it deadly serious. Because no one wants to be shown up," Stallone said of De Niro. "It's going to be like a 'Rocky' fight. This will be 'Rocky 7,' with me fighting — with Rocky fighting the 'Raging Bull.'"

Maybe he could take some of the billions that he made glorifying violence and use it on mental health issues? He could start with his own.

He is a piece of work living in his Hollywood world! My bet he thinks like most of the idiots that a so called assault rifle is full auto! People it is a semi auto modern sporting rifle

If you really want to be logical and honest about it the Constitution protects our rights to military arms not sporting arms!

That is exactly why I very rarely go to the movies. I refuse to support these liberal idiots with my hard earned cash. Against everything they glorify as entertainment, you can't have it both ways boys, its time to choose.

Why is it that people that act like interesting people are given credibility when it comes to supporting policy?

When it's their own words coming out of their mouths, actors are dumb as hell.

Stick to pretend J/O. Jackass made a living out of sensationalizing assault weaons. Maybe he can give all that back and then preach his BS.

We live in an idiocracy

Who really gives a rats a$$ what an over gloryfied, over paid, liberal, hollywood actor thinks about gun control of any kind? Just because his name is Sylvester Stalone his opinion is supposed to be worth more than anyone else's in this country? Grow up and get real, people!

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

What a loser, I hope he sealed the deal and nobody watches anything hes involved with. Hes a druggie, using anything he can get his hands on to pump his ugly old body up. And he got rich off gun movies and then hes so punch drunk he goes along with the other hollywood idiots. They are certainly not role models. Screw sly, if I met him id tell him off too.

If he cares about gun control then he should donate all the money he made off rambo movies and expendables to his cause which he is so very concerned about.
