"There's Too Many F***ing Guns Out There!"-Liam Neeson On Charlie Hebdo

Liam Neeson, who stars in the 'Taken' series, has a lot to say about guns in the aftermath of Charlie Hebdo as well as other gun attacks.

Famous actor Liam Neeson, 62, is recognized for many roles he has played throughout his career. Recently, however, he is known as Bryan Mills in the 'Taken' series. 

Taken 3 was just released and for anyone who has seen the movies, knows that Liam Neeson's character is no stranger to guns.

However, Neeson, despite his role in violent movies and what some might say is a factor in these weapon attacks, feels that the main problem in such attacks like the one on Charlie Hebdo, is that, "There's too many f***ing guns out there!".

Neeson talked about how "There's over 300 million guns. Privately owned, in America", and how movies like 'Taken' are "fantasy" and shouldn't be blamed for such real-world violence. Neeson says he used to wach cowboy films when he was young, but that didn't cause him to obtain a gun and use it to kill. Therefore, Neeson says we need to pay more attention to the real problem; guns and other weapons.

Neeson has many beliefs regarding weapon control, but more importantly, he tells news that his thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the recent attacks in Paris.
