Hey Sly, pick up the phone. It’s Piers Morgan, and he wants you to appear on his show as soon as possible to help him convince Americans that no one should want to own an “assault weapon.” Maybe Sylvester Stallone could convince the holdouts like Dana Loesch. As he told the Associated Press, “unless you’re carrying out an assault,” there’s no use for one. “You can’t hunt with it. Who’s going to attack your house, a (expletive) army?”
Stallone, surprisingly, didn’t mention the role Hollywood might play in perpetuating America’s “gun culture,” but he did zero in on mental illness. “That to me is our biggest problem in the future, is insanity coupled with isolation,” he said. But, about those movies …
Aside from “Rocky,” would you really want to see a Stallone movie without guns? “Stop or My Mom Will Call 911 and Hope for the Best”?
