Actor Brad Pitt is a gun guy, unlike a large percentage of his Hollywood peers.
In a recent interview with Radio Times, while promoting his new WWII film “Fury,” he once again spoke about his affinity for firearms and the pro-gun culture in which he was raised.
“There’s a rite of passage where I grew up inheriting your ancestors’ weapons,” said the Oklahoma-born, Missouri-raised 50-year-old.
“My brother got my dad’s,” he continued. “I got my grandfather’s shotgun when I was in kindergarten.”
Pitt went on to say that he received the shotgun when he was six, noting that his father “instilled in me a profound and deep respect for the weapon.”
As for how he feels about keeping and bearing arms for self-defense within the home?
“It’s very strange, but I feel better having a gun,” Pitt explained. “I don’t feel the house is completely safe if I don’t have one hidden somewhere. That’s my thinking, right or wrong.”
This is not the first time Pitt has expressed his pro-gun perspective. Hopefully it won’t be the last either. The more pro-gun celebrities that speak up for our Second Amendment rights, the more it servers to jab a stick in the collective eye of the freedom-hating elites the run the film industry.
Pitt’s on our side. He one of us. Suck on that Hollywood!
