Gun swaps: 10 Celebrity Gun Quotes with “Guns” Replaced with Other Weapons

Gun control policy is getting heated this week. Take a breather with us and enjoy these funny word swaps.

Gun control is controversial, and the people who have died or been injured by gun violence are no laughing matter.  But when celebrities join the mix and weigh in on the issue, some of their quotes are just too good to miss.  To shift the focus away from the heated debate we’ve seen over gun policies this week, we’ve decided to replace the guns in each of these celebrity quotes with a different weapon all together.  Here are our top picks!
