Rambo Supports Assault Weapon Ban

Posted on: February 2nd, 2013

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.

    he is just another hollywood liberal with stupid ideas that will never work ! no more gun control is needed if they would inforce the laws that are already in the books ! impeach obama !

  • AmericanWarrior

    What else would one expect from one of the major payers in the liberal nest of jollywood?

    Semper Fidelis

  • Tarfu

    Is there something in the water over there, OMG the blatant stupidity by this man and his ilk.

  • Esther Mae Egan

    I would like to ask if he has a weapon. Also if his daughter, or wife are being assaulted would he think the same thing. If he does not have a weapon, I would not want to be his wife, daughter, son or neighbor. What good would he be. He is all show and nothing more.

    • Tarfu

      Even if he does, his kind don’t see the hypocrisy in that, they think it’s ok to hire armed protection or even arm themselves to protect themselves and their family because they are “public figures” but us lowly folk who throw money at them for their stupid movies, how dare we want to be able to defend our family and ourselves.

    • refurb001

      Just an ACTOR through and through. Driven by $$$

  • http://www.facebook.com/kestrel.blackfeather Kestrel Blackfeather

    I am so disappointed in him…

  • prattchn

    I agree we should all boycott there movies. They make alot of money on the guns they want to ban. The problem is there won’t be enough people that will boycott there movies. Impeach Obama I agree with that too

    • Doc

      They make a lot of money using weapons I would love to get my hands on. Like the 7.62 and the 5.56 miniguns. I couldn’t afford to feed it much but it would be fun to take it “out ” for a snack once in a while. :)

    Stallone took too many punches to the head as Rocky. I always knew he was a wimp and a fraud and wore a uniform. He is typical of almost all of the Hollywood “tough guys”. There was a time the men of Hollywood really were men; men like Tyrone Powers, Jimmy Stewart, and even John Wayne.

    • violater1

      Charlton heston should not be left out Bob!

    • leesjokers

      and george raft, robert taylor, bogart,rooney, eastwood,…..I could go on but its just something from the past we can ponder on :)

    Duh! Folks: Hollywood is or is not the MARXIST(ANTI-CHRIST) SHOWHOUSE! It IS OR ISN’T JUST THAT! Nothing more, nothing less! p.s. Unlike John Wayne, James Arness DID NOT pass on the “Republic’s Torch” on in acknowlegement of our Republic, as John Wayne personally did to him! I’m especially not talking of the born rich MARXISTS Humbrey Bogart’s & Lauren Bacall’s! Just saying…BYE “EVIL,” YOU WIN, but for just a little while longer…No? WATCH!

  • OldDocBen

    This from the coward who ran away to teach girls soccer in Switzerland rather than man up and serve his country. Funny how cowards like this love to use the First Amendment to make millions but lack the brains to understand it is the Second Amendment that makes it all possible. Like most in the movie empire they are cowards, hypocrites, liars, and, generally poorly educated and supremely arrogant. God save us from our children who idolize these idiots.

  • egalicki

    I guess now I won’t be able to see his new movie. Too bad – he is one of 3 or 4 guys whose movies I always enjoyed – scratch one off the list.

    I wonder if he has any firearms or any armed security for his own and his family’s protection.

  • mrsgunnut10

    Rambo has made his fortune with Gun Related Movies. I personnaly think he should keep his mouth shut about “Gun Control” . As of today, Stalone will not be shown in any TV Movie, VCR’S, CD’s, or anything else they might come out with, in my Gun Owning House, ever again. I , already, do not watch any of the Gory, fowl mouthed, mutilation crazy lunatics that are shown on TV or the Movies that are made today. Thank you for your time. TSgt., USAF Retired.

    • trupatriot1971

      None of hollywood should be saying anything! Anybody that listens to those boneheads have NO moral compass!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lester-Peoples/1558461120 Lester Peoples

    Stalone is Very limited to script he reads and reality! Most of Hollywood is that way!

  • marineh2ominer

    Stallone ran off to Canada during the Vietnam war and stayed there making soft porn movies until it was over , then he came back and made his fame and fortune on the backs of these same vets by playing the downtrodden and despised Vietnam vet , as they were at the time , due to the filth in the streets and their communist college professors and press , and now that SAME filth and trash is running our communist government from Washington DC .

    money out of their pockets will keep them in the dark where they should be. Boycott all of them. There are not 10 conservatives in the entire movie business. Let them stand up and be heard or they will be flushed right along with the rest of them.

    • mogul264

      I believe there are more conservatives in Hollywood than you think, but like most conservatives, are relatively quiet!. Unfortunately, there are FAR more fame-seeking liberals just dying to open their mouths and reveal their empty heads!

  • consrvative

    Another moron heard from!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1025500368 Rick Eastlund

    wont be watching any more stallone movies.

    running out of actors who I will watch.

  • foxxybey

    Another guy who made millions by acting as a tough guy when he is just a little momma’s boy, Grow up idot Stallone, your a fraud pretending to be something your not.

  • Pawpaw

    You know lately there have been home invasions all over the country an when that happens u don’t
    Hear how 1 person did it u get 2-3 at a time so put that in your pipe and smoke it rambaby!!

  • ron8072

    Steroids must be affecting his brain. I think I have seen the last Stallone movie. I have to boycott now. And for the record, you idiot, we haven’t been able to legally purchase a new select fire or machine gun since 1986. The bill was passed and signed on May 19, 1986 by President Ronald Reagan to become Public Law 99-308, the Firearms Owners’ Protection Act. These are really scary looking and just has to be too dangerous to own, semi-autos. One trigger pull, one shot. Stallone and all his lib prog buddies in the administration and Hollywood are all DIMWITS!

  • trupatriot1971

    “Why does anyone need an assault weapon?”, well Mr. Rambo, why do you need to make movies?! Because you like them right?! Well theres your answer! Stupid hollywood hypocrite!

  • bhudda

    It’s a hypocritical stand . He makes a good living exploiting automatic weapons now he thinks they should be ban .I personally like Stallone films but I think if he feels the tools of his trade should be banned then he should not lay them down and work on other projects they don’t require this type of tools .

  • stinkerbean

    It is not what kind of gun you have. It doesn’t matter if you can hunt with one or not. It is a gun and legal gun owners don’t shoot up schools or theaters. The Point is why would we want our Government like Rhamn Emmanuel or Holder or Obama or even Biden to be the ones who own them for their protection. Or have the criminals the only ones who have them. The 2nd Ammendment is the 2nd Ammendment. Their argument does not hold water and it is just a smokescreen for Obama and his ferrymen. They want to disarm everyone so they can continue on with his tyrannical. rules. Personnally I think he just shot himself in the foot over this one. As for Follywood, they are so far out of the realm of normal who cares what they say. Obama can have them. Just keep fighting and keep them busy in courts and they will fall.

  • Armed & Female

    What a 66-year old ignoramus…..too bad he hasn’t learned much about REAL life, only knows about acting in the fantasy of Hollyweird movieland. You can’t hunt with an AR-15? Really! The AR happens to be one of the most popular hunting and sports competition rifles in existence! But how would RamBUTT know anything about that. I’ll wager $one million dollars that his security staff/body guards know about it, though. If I could afford some body guards to follow me around I would definitely expect them to have some AR-15s in their arsenal. I for one will never pay another buck to see this idiot playact in ANYTHING!

  • Sarg

    Old Sly wants to ban assalt weapons.
    This comming from a 66 year old running around with a machine gun full of blanks killing
    anyone that gets in his way,(yup we should listen to him)
    Hollywood need to lay off the blood and guts and start making decent movies again.

  • Terry C

    He has made a lot of money using the weapons all the idiots want baned. I guess he joined the idiots.

  • Mike the cowboy

    Why all the fuss about stallon does anyone of you understand when he is mumbling, unless he write things on paper I dont know what hes saying.

  • bigsilver45

    Sly is an ass. He makes his living using guns in movies, and then whines because he doesn’t believe in the second amendment

  • anonymous

    Just another Bought and Paid for Zionist Holy Hoax / Holly Wood Indian ACTOR imposter! Makes all that money making incredibly VIOLENT Films portraying Murdering Hundreds and Now HE Doesn’t Want Americans to honor their Obligation to support and Defend their Country and Families? What a Cheap Empty Suit? Will Never PAY to View another $ylly $tallone FILM NEVER not even a Re Run!

  • http://twitter.com/gruder007 Gunther Ruderschmidt

    No wonder his latest movie is tanking..

  • Rattlerjake

    Interesting! This is an individual who made millions portraying a fictional “Green Beret” character (not very well mind you, considering a true “Green Beret” would not have resorted to shooting up and blowing up a town to prove a point – but that doesn’t make good action movies), that has little true knowledge of firearms other than the exaggerated Hollywood mindset, and he’s going to tell us that “you can’t hunt with it”? He just opened his mouth and removed ALL doubt as to his stupidity and ignorance of firearms. The AR15 platform is a multi-purpose weapon, used for exhibition, competition, self-defense (just ask DHS), target practice, and HUNTING. Any varmint hunter will verify that this weapon can and is used on a regular basis for that purpose. As a retired “Green Beret”, I can tell you first hand that the only movie that was ever made that comes close to portraying Special Forces soldiers is “The Green Berets” with John Wayne, and the “Green Beret” view on this subject is 180 degrees from Stallone’s. Stallone is just another washed up Hollywood liberal parrot who thinks his opinion matters.

    His new movie should have pickets in front of the buildings.

  • duh

    First off, those who set up the Brady Bill did it for money (they feed off donations). Next, Stallone is not the man he portrays. At 5′ 2, he can only act (badly). Who can understand his English? He likely isn’t strong enough to carry a real AR15. Plastic looks real in movies and the guys/gals who do the art work are the ones who made him a ‘bimbo Rambo’. Gay? He served his country where? What a dork!

  • Adrian

    Seems Stallone is a “Lipocrite”

  • Ken Buck

    It’s time to start boycotting the movies that these hypocrites make. It’s plainly obvious that big money is being spent to take away more of our freedoms.

  • mogul264

    Where do the ‘stars’ get the idea that, because they can ‘act’, essentially PRETEND they are someone else convincingly, this makes them an ‘authority’ to be consulted about ANY subject they have not studied extensively? Way too many pontificate upon a variety of subjects, from discrimination of marriage for gays (many in Hollywood have ‘come out’, coincidentally!), the environment (they STILL use those big limos & SUVs!),, to issues about illegal aliens (used by many stars as servants!), guns (favorite ‘whipping boy’ subject for several hypocrite ‘stars’), and so on!

    Sure, some stars speak for charities, and I applaud them! But too many assume the adulation they receive entitles them to pontificate upon a variety of liberal causes, citing ‘facts’ which they only know from what their liberal buddies have told them, assumptions, not necessarily true! And, as I’ve stated above, many are hypocrites! They preach gun-control for the masses, yet depend upon armed guards for their own protection and privacy! Indeed, these MAY be required…..fine, but let US use what WE need for privacy and protection, as well!

  • lee

    Of coarse Rambut is a MORON.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/2MWB2ZTUNXVXLOM3SRHFCI7KJY Mike Gordon

    What a typical hack,liberal loser. His movies perpetuate and glorify guns,and he doesnt mind banking the profits,but would rather real honest law abiding citizens not have an AR15. By the way my 11 year old son took a whitetail buck this season with an AR rifle,so tell Rambo yes you can hunt with them.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/2MWB2ZTUNXVXLOM3SRHFCI7KJY Mike Gordon

    By the way the he does support Steroids and HGH use,which can be a big threat to the public,but I guess he will pick and choose what “bans” he likes or will follow,as Roids are illegal.

  • cjpilot

    Didn’t he ay something like “If you didn’t bring guns, you’re not going to change anything.”

  • wAYNO

    WHAT A MORON. HE IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE AS TO SOME OF THE MURDEROUS VIOLENT KILLINGS.. iT’S OK FOR HIM TO ACT IT ALL OUT, AND THEN THINK HE HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY AS TO THE OUTCOME. hE’LL TAKE THE MONEY, AND RUN.

  • foxxybey

    Rumy Rambo is a idiot who makes money playing a role, a little nazi brown shirt boy and would kick his butt any day of the year you fake idiot.

  • motljoe

    Sylvester should take his high heels and stuff them where the sun don’t shine .

  • capoprimo

    Rambo is a movie character, just as is Mickey Mouse. So would you listen to anything Mickey says? You know, miska muska Mickey Mouse is probably not where one goes for news. It just sounds as if those who might believe “Rambo” might do,

  • Angry in America

    Surprise!, he’s just as stupid as I always thought he was.

  • leesjokers

    STALLONE…..IM VERY DISSAPPOINTED IN YOUR REACTION TO GUN BAN……I WILL NO LONGER SEE UR MOVIES….STAY OUT OF POLITICS & STICK TO MOVIES…..SORRY :(

  • carlaannhogan

    Of course these liberal Hollywood deadheads support restrictive gun laws….they all have armed guards chaperoning them where ever they go! Talk about hypocrisy!

  • jay

    Thats what we need a promoter of violence wants a weapons ban, I quess if I incouriaged violence I might seek the easy way out of blame. Suck it up SLY you promote violance and you are surely a bad American!!!

  • Doc

    During Katrina the (expletive) army attacked peoples homes and took their weapons by force. See what happens if they try that stunt again

  • Patriot_765

    Another brainless Hollywood liberal.

  • Pilgrim

    If all the dems are against assault weapons, our military will not have guns to fight with. Since an AK and AR are both “RIFLES”

  • The patriot

    I always suspected he was a phony and a fool, he just confirmed it by opening his mouth.

  • Doc

    If it wasn’t for Hollyweard, rambo would have ended up a high school janitor.

  • Douglas W. Rodrigues

    Sylvester Stallone has been watching too many of his own movies and is confusing Hollywood with reality.

  • Charlie

    First of all to actually get an assault weapon one needs to get a license a FFL. There are different grades of these license for different assault weapons. The guns that Stallone and all the other sheep state as assault weapons are not assault weapons,but are semi automatic guns that have been around since the late 1800′s. Want to see assault weapons type in your URL GE assault weapons, then you will see a real assault weapon. There is a utube of a weapon that fires one million rounds a minute. Semiauto maybe +/- 100 rounds per minute if you are fast at switching out magizines. Heck the Warthog fires 30mm cannon shells at a rate of over 3000 per minute. Comparing semi to full auto is like comparing hammering a nail with a hammer or the use of a nail gun. Both use nails but with the nail gun you could drive thousands of nails a day where as with a hammer several hundred if you are good with a hammer. Wish ignorant people would not flap their lips about topics they are ignorant.

    Forget, me watching his movies. I saw his last movie, “Expendables 2″ just a bunch of old washed up actors.

    3/8/2013 at 805Pm. Sylvester Stallone is a hypocrite , plain and simple.
