Jamie Lee Curtis responds to Fox article about guns in 'Halloween' movie

Danielle Harris in Halloween 4 The Return of Michael Myers Twitter Mocks Fox News For Suggesting Jamie Lee Curtis is a Gun Control Hypocrite: ‘Wow. Nailed Her’

Further, she suggested, "What I think might surprise them".

Unfortunately for the site, the story didn't just catch the attention of a few Halloween fans, it also caught the attention of Laurie Strode herself, Jamie Lee Curtis.

Jamie Lee Curtis is firing back at a Fox News article that painted her as a hypocrite for brandishing firearms in the upcoming reboot of "Halloween" while being among the many "Hollywood liberals" calling for stricter gun control laws in the U.S.

She did, however, quantify her guarded endorsement of the Second Amendment with the statement that "I fully support an assault weapon ban, I fully support a bump stock ban".

Interestingly enough, while Curtis states that people should have a license to use a firearm, her character in the film, Laurie Strode, hands out her firearms to her daughter and granddaughter without either of them having a license or having any kind of training with a firearm.

Some people on Twitter, replying to Fox News' tweet, argued that Curtis should not glorify gun violence in her films if she's against using firearms in real life. But neither of those things are supporting a ban on guns.

In the movie, Ms. Curtis said her character keeps her guns in a padlocked cabinet and at one point "very specifically says what each weapon does and why you would choose that weapon in self-defense". But I fully support the Bill of Rights.

"On top of that, she urged the "Halloween" filmmakers to be cognizant of sensible gun ownership in developing her character for the upcoming film".

Curtis explains that Strode arms her progeny with firearms that are stored behind a padlocked cabinet, "and then very specifically says what each weapon does and why you would choose that weapon in self-defense". Will you be checking out Halloween when it comes to theaters?

In the end, both sides are talking about Halloween, which is still set to hit theaters October 19, and, as the quote often attributed to showman and hoax master P.T. Barnum goes, "There is no such thing as bad publicity". "I got to play with the original themes of Halloween", John Carpenter says here.
