Personal Quote:

If you take guns away from legal gun owners then the only people who would have guns would be the bad guys. Even a pacifist would get violent if someone were trying to kill him or her. You would fight for your life, whatever your beliefs. You'd use a rock or tear one of these chairs out of the floor. Hey, maybe I've been watching too many Bruce Willis movies! See more »

Trivia:

Mentioned in the lyrics of "Jizz in My Pants" by The Lonely Island. One of the composers of the song, Jorma Taccone, shares birthday with Willis. See more »
