Sylvester Stallone supports assault weapon ban
BEVERLY HILLS, California (AP) - Sylvester Stallone says that despite his Rambo image and new shoot-em-up film Bullet To The Head, he's in favour 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.
