New Zealand-Canadian actress Anna Paquin strongly favors gun control — even more so after the mosque shootings that killed 50 people. And as she tells Brut — she doesn't care if it means losing friends and fans on social media.

    More gun laws won't stop people from killing, you're just changing their weapon of choice (if they decide to obey the law and turn in their guns)

    As long as her ideas stay in New Zealand and Canada, everything is just peachy.

    These folks are ONLY mentioning specific types of guns... Not ALL guns... Lets get a grip and keep it yall... Now that being said, i dont want to give up MY ar lol... But them again im NOT a "regular civilian" but my biggest takeaway from this is that even if "assault" platforms were banned... I am the weapon... ANYTHING in my hand is simply an extension. I live in the nation where it was once legal for me to be property... Please dont be surprised when i WANT (not need) to have some similar firepower as those who work for this government... Its really a simple correlation idk how some dont get it 🇺🇸

    Everyone has a right to their opinion just because she is an actress does not make her opinion count more than the next person.

    That’s all she had to say? Well without guns fascism takes over. That’s far worse than what happened over there. And it isn’t immediate it is over time.

    Absolutely agree with her. Growing up in a non gun culture world is normal for those of us from New Zealand and Australia. It’s so foreign to us.

    If you need an automatic weapon, you live in fear.
