Rambo’s Sylvester Stallone supports gun control (New movie FLOPS!)
Washington Times AP ^ | 2/2/13 | Ryan Pearson

Posted on 02/03/2013 3:09:27 PM PST by jimbo123

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — 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?”

Stallone's comments best read in a Rocky Balboa voice.

Go ahead and vent, Sly. But it ain't gonna help your box office receipts.

The funny thing is that in the movie “Demolition Man” he stole guns from a museum to protect the unarmed utopiatards from a crazed killer.

Movie actors, for one. Provided they star in action films, Mr. Stallone.

Seems like many of the folks with private armies of security are all for gun control. Interesting, isn’t it?

Who … needs an assault weapon?

Your body guards. And everyone else who wants one. It not need, it's want. You own a LOT of shit you don't need, but you bought it because your fans dropped a lot of money some of them needed so you could buy things you want.

Who’s going to attack your house, a (expletive) army?

Sometimes, Syllie, it can be. For a single person, more than one attacker is as good as an army. Ever had a house invasion? Oh, that's right. You have heavily armed bodyguards, so that wouldn't happen.

I'm sure all the ghetto gangsta's, and drug cartel street-workers will line right up to Register their weapons, pass background checks, etc.

I think an Amendment to the High-Capacity Magazine Ban should address Criminal Background Checks for those who want to recieve EBT's, WIC, Food Stamps, or ANY other Means-Tested handouts, along with MANDATORY Drug Testing, periodically, to CONTINUE to recieve ANY Public Assistance, including Housing under Section 8......

I wonder why ALL “public assistance programs” are Constitutional, and should be attacked by “dis-proportionate impact”, such as is used by Progressives every time un-qualified minorities MUST be a certain percentage of employees, etc.? You NEVER hear about Minorities’ handouts being slung onto Taxpayers’ backs, where ONLY minorities and certain “targeted classes” are given subsidized vote-buying gifts and no one challenges it?

Good point. A LOT of Stallone movies from the 80s and early 90s made the point that you need guns to defend yourself. WTF is he thinking with these comments? If he really means it, he should stop making movies with guns.

Demolition man is somewhat of a conservative cult classic due to the fact that it portrays the liberal fantasy utopian society as a failure.

“steroids are a terrible thing”

I had a girl friend in the 70’s that went crazy over this guy. Anything, and I do mean ANYTHING, with this bozo in it she had to see. So sometime back then, there's this ‘odd’ movie advertised with him in it. Well, it was soon obvious that old sly had made a porno, and this was it - even through 'A' list theaters were showing it as ‘unrated.’

Didn't matter what it was, she had to see it. It was suitably awful, until old sly walked out buck naked. I don't know how to describe this legally here, but let's just say he's a ‘little fellow.’ She of course immediately said, “let's go.” I of course said, “no, no, I've been captivated by the plot, and we have to stay.” And we did. And neither he nor the movie ‘rose’ to the occasion.

Sometimes life deals you lemons and you make lemonade out of it. Sometimes life deals you lemonade and you make Dom Perignon out of it.

I seem to recall a story that came out a decade or so ago, that he had an indoor shooting range at his house in Florida.

Anyone else remember that?

Stallone is a little runt...my wife and I walked by him on a Warner Brothers lot some years ago, and she had to look DOWN to make eye contact. Built like a concrete block, but just about the same size.

Barack Hussein Cocteau

You see, according to Cocteau’s plan, I’m the enemy, ‘cause I like to think; I like to read. I’m into freedom of speech and freedom of choice. I’m the kind of guy who likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, “Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecued ribs with the side order of gravy fries?” I WANT high cholesterol. I wanna eat bacon and butter and BUCKETS of cheese, okay? I want to smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section. I want to run through the streets naked with green Jell-o all over my body reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly might feel the need to, okay, pal? I’ve SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It’s a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing “I’m an Oscar Meyer Wiener”.

Do what is right.
This guy gives retarded lizards a bad name.
Do what the leftards try to do to everybody they disagree with.
DESTROY HIM ECONOMICALLY.
SOCRCHED EARTH. FORCE HIM TO EAT MAC AND CHEESE AT THE MISSION.
We are at war. This 4F fraud like the rest of these freaks in Kaleeforniya have no clue.
Most of them are so dumb and stoned they can’t even read their lines.
Remember what Shakespeare said about actors: “Thieves, whores, and mountbanks.”

We tried to watch (Netflix) the film Expendables 2, but there was so much over the top vehicle and weapon combat (plot absenteeism) at the beginning of it, we sent it back unwatched. This statement by Stallone is sheer hypocracy given how he makes his money. Apparently the Hollywood crowd are okay with using weapons and violence to make money (victims strewn everywhere), but not for citizens armed to protect themselves in actual real life criminal attacks.

Cities like Chicago show what anti-gun laws have done in reality: they've armed thugs and criminals and make taxpayers victims of violence as a result. When there is no fear of a potential victim, a thug or criminal thrives. Giant scissors aren't going to cut it (sarc).

BTW, doping to build up muscle tone to that extent only impresses other men and lowers your testosterone levels to that of a prepubescent girl........sounds pretty gay to me Sly. Just saying.
