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.

    Those who favour Gun control know that Nazis did the same thing Banning guns so that Jews Cannot protect themselves and Nazis can eliminate their enemies.

    The stupidity is strong with this one… In 2017, there were 1.2 million gun owners in New Zealand and 35 murders. That is a ratio of 0.00002%. If this simple mathematical ratio doesn't make you realize that it is not the gun but the gun owner, the human being and not the inanimate object that is responsible, then you are a full-fledged idiot.

    Maybe just maybe if more people carrying firearms things like this wouldn't happen it's called protecting your Society from bad people who don't abide by the laws. Okay everybody turn in your guns even the bad people LOL let's see how that works out for you

    Ignorant people. Using logic like this... Over 6 million people are injured in automobile accidents in the US every year. Automobile accidents were responsible for over a half million deaths across the world last year. Obviously we need to outlaw automobiles.

    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.

    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.

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