Halloween Gun Rights Controversy Has Jamie Lee Curtis Sounding Off

Halloween Gun Rights Controversy Has Jamie Lee Curtis Sounding Off

Some people on Twitter, replying to Fox News' tweet, argued that Curtis should not glorify gun violence in her films if she's against using firearms in real life.

"They're kind of reopening the case 40 years later, and trying to find new truths and new facts, and explore it in a different way, and maybe brings some things to light", says Andi Matichak, who plays Laurie Strode's granddaughter, Allyson. "And fully support the Second Amendment", she said.

She did, however, quantify her guarded endorsement of the Second Amendment with the statement that "I fully support an assault weapon ban, I fully support a bump stock ban". And have absolutely no problem with people owning firearms if they have been trained, licensed, a background check has been conducted, a pause button has been pushed to give time for that process to take place.

Both he and Mr Anwar were formerly in power, as part of the BN, as PM and deputy respectively. It was the first time that the two men shared the same political stage together in 20 years.

Notably, Curtis herself reportedly consulted on the types of weapons her character would use in the film, to defend herself against Halloween's villain and Strode's own personal boogeyman, Michael Myers. Interestingly, it sounds as if the movie wouldn't have happened without her. While the piece acknowledges that Curtis is not "entirely anti-gun", it puts most of its focus on Hollywood figures who use guns in film roles while calling for gun safety reform across America. Curtis dismissed the article as "silly", and talked about her beliefs on the subject. "I was very clear with the filmmakers that she used the weapons intended for self-defense for her and her family". Curtis previously appeared in four films in the series, including the 1978 original, its 1981 sequel, 1998's Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, and Resurrection. "I have to be responsible for my own personal choices in my own personal life".

What do you make of Curtis' comments?

In the end, both sides are talking about Halloween, which is still set to hit theaters October 19, and, as the quote often attributed to showman and hoax master P.T. Barnum goes, "There is no such thing as bad publicity".
