• Jason Bourne/Matt Damon Bites The Gun That Feeds Him

    Sure the trailer looks cool. The Bourne movies are exciting displays of action built on violence.

    However, in a stunning display of hypocrisy, actor Matt Damon, who is known for his character Jason Bourne attacked the gun rights of average Americans.

    The actor was in Australia promoting his latest gun-laden extravaganza, but took the time to bash America’s gun laws.

    The hypocrisy of his enormous wealth being founded on glamorizing outrageous gun use obviously escapes him. No one ever said actors were smart.

    From Entertainment Weekly:

    Jason Bourne is getting tough on guns.

    Asked to comment on gun control while promoting his new film,Jason Bourne, in Sydney, Australia, Matt Damon told The Sydney Morning Herald he wishes America would learn from the land down under.

    “You guys did it here in one fell swoop and I wish that could happen in my country, but it’s such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly. We just can’t,” he said.

    “People get so emotional that even when you make a suggestion about not selling AK-47s to people on terror watch lists, that’s a non-starter. I don’t know what needs to happen.”

    Damon also noted that, “Obviously mass shootings aren’t going to do it. There have been so many of them at this point. Sandy Hook, when those children were murdered, if that didn’t do it, you know, I just don’t know. Maybe we just need to evolve further before we can have that conversation, I don’t know.”

    “I wish we could be sensible like that but I don’t think that’s going to happen in my lifetime.”

    Well Matt, if you would get off your high horse and decide that it is morally wrong to make the movies you do…maybe people would care what you say. As it is, you just look like a total idiot.

    I am sure Australia would be happy to take you.
