It seems like everyone has an opinion on recent gun control debate, including Charlie Sheen. In an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, Sheen said he favors stricter gun laws despite being a former weapon’s enthusiast and “collector”. While visiting Piers Morgan Tonight, Sheen explained why his views changed, stating, “because we’re not supposed to bury our children.”
“If anybody from the NRA wants to look any of those parents in the eyes from that school and tell them that guns are still necessary, then I urge them to, and see how that goes,” said Sheen referring to the Newton, Connecticut shooting.
Charlie Sheen noted that he had long been a gun collector who often practiced shooting in a range at his home. “I was a target shooter, more of a weapons collector of a lot of vintage stuff all through the years of various weaponry”, he said.” He no longer owns any of the guns due to past legal trouble, including domestic dispute with ex-wife Brooke Mueller.
Piers Morgan has been receiving some back lash for his outspoken onions as well. Gun rights extremists have sought to deport Piers Morgan for speaking out against pro-gun organizations. The White House defended Morgan in his right to free speech and denied the petition.
