After surviving alcoholism, drug dependency and a little habit of getting into fights, Colin Farrell has a uniquely personal position on gun control. The issue arose because of the gun violence that occurs in the final scene of his new film, "Dead Man Down," prompting the Daily Mail to ask Farrell about his own thoughts on firearms.
"I don't want one. I I wouldn't trust myself to have a gun. What if I got drunk again? What if I got my heart broken and I go crazy for a bit, or, even worse, what if I forget to lock my gun away somewhere and someone has an accident? I forget my car keys all the time, so why not that?" he said.
"Americans say, 'Oh but it's our constitutional right, we're all grown-ups, give us guns,'" he continued. "Well, don't give me a gun, because I'm a human being."
