Quote of the Day: Jack Burton gets it edition.

“They can also make a bomb pretty easily. So what?” Russell retorted. “They can also get knives and stab you. [What are you] gonna do about that? They can also get cars and run you over. [What are you] gonna do about that?” – Kurt Russell via TheBlaze

Self-described libertarian Kurt Russell gets it. In an interview with assault-journalist Jeffery Wells, Russell unloads on the mouthpiece for the civilian-disarmament complex.

“When Wells argued back that the San Bernardino terrorists didn’t use cars, Russell fought back, saying that previous terrorists have used cars to murder people.

“But they’ve killed others that way, haven’t they?” he said. “Yeah, yeah. Whaddaya gonna do? Outlaw everything? That isn’t the answer.”

The concept that you can never legislate-away all manner of dangerous things is not that difficult to grasp, but you need to remove your hoplophobic blinders and utilize critical thought and logic. Wells was so incapable of straying from his talking points that an exasperated Russell Russell finally exclaims: “Oh my God. You and I just disagree.”

I need to have a Big Trouble screening soon. It has been a while.
