Matt Damon has made millions off action movies like the Jason Bourne series, which revolve around him shooting guns at bad guys. Despite this, Damon has made it clear that he has no love for the Second Amendment.
The Daily Caller reported that Damon recently used a press conference to call for the U.S. government to confiscate guns like Australia did.
“You guys did it here in one fell swoop [in 1996] and I wish that could happen in my country, but it’s such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly,” Damon said while promoting the movie “Jason Bourne” in Sydney.
“People get so emotional that even when you make a suggestion about not selling AK47s to people on terror watchlists, that’s a non-starter. I don’t know what needs to happen,” Damon continued. “Obviously mass shootings aren’t going to do it. There have been so many of them at this point. Sandy Hook, when those children were murdered, if that didn’t do it, you know, I just don’t know. Maybe we just need to evolve further before we can have that conversation, I don’t know.”
“It’s wonderful what Australia did because you guys haven’t had a mass shooting since you went, ‘No, we’re going to be sensible about this.’ And nobody’s rights have been infringed, you guys are fine,” he added. “I wish we could be sensible like that but I don’t think that’s going to happen in my lifetime.”
Clearly, Damon sees no irony in the fact that he’s calling for gun confiscation while promoting a movie that focuses on gun violence. Ah, the hypocrisy of liberals!
