Jesse James, former host of Monster Garage and ex-husband of Sandra Bullock, has come out in support of the NRA and safe gun handling education.
Hot on the heels of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut US Weekly reports that James is an advocate of less gun control in the United States.
After living in California, a state with strict gun control laws, James wrote on his Facebook page:
“I have seen more dead bodies than I can count. On my way to work, at least once a week in the early mornings, streets are often closed off with yellow tape. Because somebody is dead from a gunshot wound. Or sometimes bodies [are] just seen laying there waiting for police to arrive.”
Now living in Texas, a state with relaxed gun control laws, James claims he feels safe:
“I have not seen one dead body, have not experienced any drive-by shootings. I can now relax, and live life in this free country. I have for the first time in my life enjoyed the freedom to purchase and shoot the guns of my choice. I have been able to enjoy these things with my family and teach them the safe proper way to shoot, handle, and secure weapons.”
Jesse James gives the NRA his full support and believes that the solution gun violence is not gun control, but more guns and proper gun education. He claims that gun control laws will only work on honest citizens while evil people will still find a way to create mayhem.
