Jamie Lee Curtis on guns: Supports both 2A, gun bans

On Wednesday, Fox News shared a truly dumb take about Curtis, star of the Halloween re-boot. Curtis adds that when Strode arms her daughter and granddaughter as Myers closes in, she removes the guns from behind a padlocked cabinet, "and then very specifically says what each weapon does and why you would choose that weapon in self-defense."As for those who call actors hypocritical for wielding guns on screen while advocating for gun safety?"I'm an actress who's in slasher movies", Curtis says".

Ms. Blasey Ford's uncorroborated claims of attempted rape in 1982 almost derailed Justice Kavanaugh's confirmation to the high court.

When Fox News pointed out the apparent hypocrisy on Tuesday that Curtis, an activist and self-described Democrat who helped campaign for Hillary Clinton in 2016, has also been outspoken at times in favor of more regulation on guns, it sparked a Twitter backlash from fans pointing out that Curtis was playing a fictional role, the details of which outlets such as the HuffPost reveled in. "And I think there were myriad types of firearms that could have been used in the movie. But if she didn't, if she had said no, we would have".

"I fully support the Bill of Rights".

Thus with apparently limited worldwide support and somewhat lukewarm Canadian support, Jean's re-election chances had been slim. Trudeau said he had a "frank and direct" discussion about human rights when he met Kagame at the summit Thursday.

To that, Nick Gillespie at Reason.com pointed out that Curtis's stand on the interpretation of just how infringed the Second Amendment can be and still be supported largely mirrors 1980s Republicans.

We're still not entirely sure what the basis for the original article was, but it looks as though Curtis has been mindful of how Laurie and the weapons she uses will be shown in the new film. "For instance, I fully support an assault weapon ban, I fully support a bump stock ban", she told USA Today. "And fully support the Second Amendment", Curtis said.

Jamie Lee Curtis is very busy promoting her upcoming "Halloween" movie, but a story by Fox News has forced her to face accusations of gun control hypocrisy.

What do you think of the Curtis versus Fox conflict? Will you be checking out Halloween when it comes to theaters?
