Arnold Schwarzenegger on Gun Control

Republican CA Governor


Strong supporter of the second amendment

Q: Where do you stand on gun control?

A: I am a strong supporter of the second amendment. The U.S. constitution allows for law-abiding citizens to own a firearm.

Support Brady Bill; assault weapon ban; safety locks

I [support the second amendment, but I] also believe that there are responsibilities that gun owners must follow in owning a firearm. I support the Brady bill, I support the current assault weapons ban and I believe that guns must have safety devices or be stored as to prevent accidental discharge.

Close the gun show loophole

Schwarzenegger supports the Brady Bill, which tightened gun control measures. I would also like to close the loophole of the gun shows, Schwarzenegger said, referring to the fact that people can buy weapons at such exhibitions without a background check.

Im for gun control; Im a peace-loving guy

[The National Rifle Association] probably wont like Schwarzenegger either. In The Terminator Schwarzenegger goes into a gun store and picks out a 12-gauge auto loader, a .45 long slide, a phase plasma rifle and an Uzi 9 mm. (Then he kills the guy behind the counter.) But as Schwarzenegger began to think of himself as a potential political candidate, he became sensitive on the gun issue, telling one interviewer, Im for gun control. Im a peace-loving guy.
