Brad Pitt Defends Gun Rights

Says he feels less safe without a firearm in the house


Brad Pitt is adamant U.S. politicians should ignore calls to outlaw firearms in the wake of the Colorado cinema massacre, insisting he only feels safe at home when he has a gun.

The "Fight Club" star is a lifelong lover of pistols and owned his first weapon – an air gun – when he was just a small child, and he's adamant lawmakers in his native country should not bow to public pressure to rescind its constitutional right to bear arms.
