    Kevin Costner Calls For Stricter Gun Laws

    Kevin CostnerKevin Costner is urging lawmakers to come up with a series of strict new gun legislation - even if it limits his own shooting time. The star admits he loves to hunt and often heads out with his dogs and a shotgun passed down through generations of his family, but he's the first to admit that America's gun laws are too weak.

    And following the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech college, where English student Cho Seung-Hui killed 32 people in what was the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history, Costner feels that legislators should get tough with firearms owners, who refuse to accept their practices could harm others.

    He says, "I'm a hunter, I hunt but I think there should be gun laws. I think there should be a lot of gun laws. I don't want to lose my shotgun but there's a real good reason why I use my shotgun. It came from my grandpa. His cheek was on it. My dad's cheek was on it and I go out and hunt with my dogs.

    "My gun's an heirloom to me and my son, one day, when I'm gone, is gonna know, `Your dad hunted with that.' But, even though with the connection that I have to my gun, can I look at the NRA (National Rifle Association) and say, `I think you're out of line?' I can say that."

    :ugh:
    I think Kevin Costner should shut the fuck up he's a shitty actor and anyone who cares what he thinks is a fucking retard.

    Actors always come up with this bizarre stuff because they want to be taken seriously for something in real life. :uh:

    I think all of Hollywood should shut the fuck up.
    The paparazzi should all carry guns and start picking off the dumb fucks one by one.

    What a load of horseshit.

    He's basically saying:
    Yay! I think we should have gun laws. Lots of em, but make sure I get to keep my shotgun when you make them, ok?

    It takes a big man to admit that. :hsugh:
     
  18. Shut the fuck up. Only 32 people :ugh2:.
     
  19. Also Kevin Costner sucks. Actors need to shut up and stop being so political no one cares what they think.

    I've never understood why anyone give two shits about what an actor thinks apart from roles that they've had etc. :greddy:

    If I'm interested in what it is like to play a post-apocolyptic mer-man or a Civil War-era soldier out on the Frontier, then I care about his opinion. Otherwise I don't.

    Someone needs to explain to Kevin that the 2nd Amendment isn't about hunting.

    Saying "I'm a hunter" is such a tired way of trying to give yourself credibility in the gun control discussion. Sadly people think hunters and police...they know it all.

    he hasn't actually said anything

    all he's said is that "guns laws should be stricter" (big fucken deal) and he should be able to have a different opinion to the NRA (that's allowed) and that he's a hunter with a shotgun.

    To me it sounds like he wants to make some statement but he doesn't want to be too radical (avoid alienating anyone). He's a fencesitter.

    He doesn't want to be Jim Zumbo.
