Jodie Foster Insisits  on Gun Prohibition In U.S
Actress Jodie Foster has launched an attack against America's abundance of firearms by insisting on a prohibition on the use of guns in the US.

The 'Silence of the Lambs' star insists that guns should not exist, even though they are a huge part of the American culture.

"I don't believe that any gun should be in the hand of a thinking, feeling, and breathing human being," Contactmusic quoted Foster, as saying.

"Americans are by nature filled with rage-slash-fear. And guns are a huge part of our culture.

"I know I'm crazy because I'm only supposed to say that in Europe. But violence corrupts absolutely," she added.

Foster is playing the role of an urban vigilante in the new flick 'The Brave One'.

Does anyone know what kind of caliber the gun was used in the movie?

Hey,
I am bipolar and I do not own a gun nor do I want one.

A documentary needs to be written about the mentally ill with guns. This is a NO.
Thanks,

Ya, sure, lets just leave the guns to criminals, governments, and secret police. Who knows, maybe they'll be benevolent... (ya right...)

Typical of Hollywood stars with private security and bodyguards that the rest of us can't afford. What gets me also is they star in movies where they use guns and act out violence. Hypocrites, they need to walk to talk.

Ms. Foster has been living in Hollywoodland since she was a child. She can afford a level of security that most of us can only imagine. If Ms. Foster wishes to eschew the use of firearms, she is welcome to do so, but she has NO right to destroy the most basic right of every human being-the right to defend their life. She proves that intelligence and common sense do not always exist in the same brain.
