Brad Pitt Needs a Gun in His House to Feel Safe

Actor Brad Pitt is a doctrinaire lefty in nearly every way… except one. Apparently, ol’ Brad feels he needs a gun in the house to feel safe.

This happens to be a total betrayal of the usual liberal ideology. The left must be furious with him!

“There’s a rite of passage where I grew up of inheriting your ancestors’ weapons,” said Pitt. “My brother got my dad’s. I got my grandfather’s shotgun when I was in kindergarten.”

The actor – who was born in Oklahoma and raised in Missouri – was first given an air gun, then received a shotgun when he was six. By the time he was eight, he had fired a handgun.

The Radio Times reports that Pitt doesn’t feel that he and his family are safe unless there is a gun in the house.

“The positive is that my father instilled in me a profound and deep respect for the weapon,” he said.

Well, it is refreshing to see a liberal shying for the abject, thoughtless gun control meme, anyway.
