"Actor Kurt Russell found himself being dragged into the gun debate during an interview with Jeffrey Wells of Hollywood Elsewhere last week.
Wells, an apparent supporter of tougher gun laws, attempted to back Russell into a corner on the issue, suggesting that gun control was the only answer to the various threats we face today.
Russell scoffed at that idea, noting that you can’t “control the behavior of people that are dead set on taking your way of life away from you.” Instead, Russell alluded to the reality that one needs to be prepared to stand one’s ground and defend one’s way of life by any means necessary.
He also made a great hockey analogy, which was tantamount to saying that we shouldn’t be living in fear of evildoers or criminals, they should be the one’s living in fear of us. In short, we need to flip the script. We need to instill fear, not invite it."
