I guess she is learning from some of her movies.

"If anybody comes into my home and tries to hurt my kids, I've no problem shooting them." That's Angelina Jolie, revealing her up-with-the-Second-Amendment maternal instincts to Britain's Mail on Sunday.
And, as an added warning, the protective mom of Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, Shiloh, 2, and the still-baking, Brad Pitt-spawned double buns in her oven, points out that she "bought original, real guns of the type we used in 'Tomb Raider' for security."
"Brad and I are not against having a gun in the house, and we do have one," acknowledges Jolie, who is out stumping for the soon-to-be-released thriller, "Wanted," in which she plays a weapons-wielding assassin. "And yes, I'd be able to use it if I had to. I could handle myself. I think there are certain combat skills that would come out. I tend to want to throw an elbow."
Says the goodwill-promoting earth mother, "There's a side to me that people know is humanitarian, and there's a side to me that's a mommy. But there's also the side that likes to get down and dirty and run and jump around and fire guns."
Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

Like custom guns and stuff? Check this out...
They have to be misquoting her. I could have sworn I had heard her in the past say that noone should be allowed to own guns. If this story is true, I may actually start to like her.
Good for Jolie. Maybe she has seen the world for what it is, what it was, and what it will be. Stay armed, stay safe, stay trained.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day.
And I still can't wait to see how she plays Dagny. She'll probably butcher it, but I'm sure I'll have to see it at least a few times to see how bad.
There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
Who is John Galt?
Exactly why some overpaid movie star who made her money with a skin tight jumpsuit & a pair of H&K USP pistols opinion on the right to bear arms is relevant, I'll never understand.
She is an actor. A good looking one, yes...but ultimately, rather inconsequential.
Besides, she, like most people in the movie buisness, have a standard for themselves, and one for the rest of us.
We can look to the example of Sean Penn who has a CA carry permit, carries a glock but is a big time anti-gunner for the rest of us.
Be careful. She is one of the celebs that thinks no one but HER should be able to own a gun.

Probably the only home based FFL that doesn't do transfers.
Interesting to say the least.......

Good heavens but so-called "journalists" are crude and tasteless.[...] the still-baking, Brad Pitt-spawned double buns in her oven [...]
But that's a plus for Ms. Jolie. She still is a mushy-headed peacenik for the most part, but I have now seen her quoted on a coulpe different issues where she has proved apparently capable of thinking outside the Hollywood groupthink box. So, even if I disagree with her on a lot of things I can give her half a point at least for doing her own thinking.

It's unfortunate, but true that our celebrities can and do pave some political pathways.
This isn't the first time, or even the second, I've heard of Angelina Jolie speaking in favor of guns. Hopefully it sticks and some people think again. Because if Angelina Jolie is willing to defend her family with a firearm, maybe it's not such a bad idea after all.
She's still annoying.
That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?
